This isn't last year, where we were jockying for position. If we lose this + 1 more to Cincy we could be out, then we'd have saved him for nothing.

Of course if he can't make the throws and is in too much pain sit him. But Ben at 75% is better than any option we currently have. Baltimore can be beaten with Ben. They didn't show much in our game. I expect them to play better. But our offense is anemic without Ben and was very good with him.

If it's one thing the Cleveland loss did, it invalidated the Baltimore win against us. It showed them to be the fraud they are. They are a decent team, but are not up to the caliber of last years team. They missed their opportunity last year. They will go quietly in the playoffs. There isn't any team in the NFL we could have beaten with our offense the last 2 weeks.
We are frauds because you can't beat the browns? . . . k . . .

That's it in a nutshell.

Pain is just as much a factor as muscle movement, ligament or joint damage. If he's not risking anything physically, that's one thing but if it hurts like hell to move then that can be just as debilitating as a broken bone.

Only Ben can decide if his presence on the field will be an asset or a liability.
Sure it's macho to "play through the pain" and he'd be a "warrior" and all that crap, but if the pain is so great that he can't do what he normally does, then it doesn't really make that much difference if he plays or if Batch does.

No I don't think Ben should play if he is still hurt to the point were he can further damage his body by being hit, (remember the refs don't protect our QB's) cause if he comes back now against the dirty RAT BIRDS they are gonna just head hunt him,but as we all know if he can play Ben will be sure to play just to prove himself.

In all honesty, do you truly believe you are a stronger team right now than the Texans, Patriots, or Broncos?

I'm not saying the Steelers are better than the Ravens this year, because they are not. But please don't act like the Purple Power Rangers aren't the weakest of all the division leaders right now. You have won big 2 times this year, both of which were against teams that suck ass. All the rest of your wins were by 1 score or less against teams with losing records. The 2 teams you beat with winning records were by 1 point and 3 points, respectively. You lost to the Eagles, which is as bad as our loss to the Raiders, and you got completely shit on by the Texans. That wasn't even a game. It was a jailhouse ass raping.

Stop acting like your team is King Shit. Your defense is one of the worst ranked in the NFL at rank 24, and your offense is mediocre at best with a rank of 16.

You'll win the division, and probably sweep the Steelers this year. I won't deny that. But you aren't going anywhere NEAR the SuperBowl.

I live in the Baltimore area, so if you would like to make a legit bet on my prediction, let me know.

I dunno what this thread is about anymore either, which is why when it involves a Ravens fan - I like to just post pictures of some of their fans - which are really hard to look at, but seems to irritate them just as much as telling us our fans are trash with no teeth.

like I've said before. Way to beat your chest for your mid-season awards and for beating one gimped Steelers team. I'll give you last year's victories - you were the better team -and I think that team was your best shot at the SB, and you blew it. Your Ravens team this year can't hold a candle to last year's IMO. I thought for sure once you beat us in our house last season, you were well on your way. The chemistry on O with the play calling was so much better on the road and in general the defense swarmed like hell.

Don't brag about beating gimp teams dude. Your team will get exposed against a dynamic offense and a team with an established, dominant pass rush. Something we can't seem to establish (but the pass rush is starting to form just in times for playoffs IMO) because we're freakin paralyzed without our playmakers.

In all honesty - do you think your team would have beat the Steelers that were stocked, locked, and loaded after we beat the Giants?

I agree. I voted yes, assuming he is cleared to play. We need him NOW. we go 6-6 and we really risk missing the playoffs, and I think as long as he is healthy we can definitely beat the ravens, as they actually suck.
