Wholeheartedly agree with you. However, I don't agree with comparing stats because stats don't tell the story. If we're going to be saying yards is the most important thing, Stafford, Romo and Brees would be leading the MVP voting.

MVP needs to go past just yardage and TDs. It's about how important a member is to a given team and we've seen how important Ben is to the Steelers over the last three weeks. Unfortunately, Ravens fans are comparing Ben's stats to Joey's - as if that's smart football. It's also a pathetic reach to make Joey in the same ballpark as Ben. He's not even in the parking lot of the ballpark that Ben is in, but hey, don't tell them that. They'll get butthurt and whine over it - something that is becoming the norm for that organization.

Right, Johnny?

It's a general practice for me but, obviously, it took special effort to secure that victory and when I noticed that guys were headed to the locker room I was in a hurry to get there.

I said this was the reason. I knew it... Harbaugh bumped his gums after they beat us the three weeks ago. I remember seeing it on ESPN and it pissed me off then.

Tomlin's class and respect for another human being won't allow him to not give credit and acknowledge another human being's or team's accomplishments in front of the press - hence, the coach speak.

But, you better believe he hates these punks, and this shit was emphasized during the week's preparations. Bmore fans can massage Harbaugh's words any way they want and label him a nice, classy guy, all they want.

Al Capone gave to charities too. He was still a shit of a human being. Let me ramp it down for you: The popular girl can be well-liked by all the jocks and admired by the other popular girls - it doesn't mean they still aren't a bitch to everyone outside of their click.

Keep drinkin the purple kool-aid. You all know you have about a 2-4 season window to win a Super Bowl, or you'll see Harbaugh, Flacco, and Rice G_O_N_E. Time is ticking . . .

The Ravens threw the "respect" aspect of this rivalry out the window a year ago. All there exists is hate. The Ravens aren't respectable anymore. Now I only hate them.

Mike Tomlin's college teammate says 'bad blood' exists with John Harbaugh

Nate Davis, USA TODAY
December 6. 2012-

You better be careful what you say about coach Mike Tomlin's Pittsburgh Steelers because it could come back to bite you.

His undermanned team ended the Baltimore Ravens' 15-game home winning streak Sunday, evidently fueled in part by some two-week old comments from Ravens coach John Harbaugh, and set the stage for Tomlin's drive-by handshake with his counterpart following the game.

"There's bad blood between these two coaches," said NFL Network analyst Darren Sharper, who was Tomlin's college teammate at William & Mary in the 1990s, on Showtime's Inside the NFL on Wednesday night.

"You think about the fact that the teams do not like each other, so that carries over to the coaches because they're the ones preaching to the team before the games. And before this game there was a little bit of an incident in which Coach Harbaugh had some comments after they beat the Pittsburgh Steelers which he knew the camera was on, too."

Sharper was referring to a locker room clip of Harbaugh lauding his club immediately after its 13-10 win at Heinz Field on Nov. 18, the Steelers' first game this season without injured quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

Said Harbaugh to the troops that night: "The toughest team won that football game. The mentally tough team won that football game. The better team won the football game. The team that knows how to win won that football game."

Yes, if you're keeping track, Tomlin's team has reached two Super Bowls and won one since 2008, Harbaugh's first year in Baltimore. The Steelers eliminated the Ravens in the playoffs on the way to both of those Super Bowls, and many Baltimore players acknowledge that the lone missing element in the teams' bloody rivalry is the fact that none of them (save Ray Lewis 12 years ago) have rings.

So hearing Harbaugh deem the Ravens the tougher team clearly didn't sit well with Mr. T.

"Coach Tomlin, like all coaches do, they watch everything. They read the papers they try to say they don't they read the papers, they look at television, and he thought that was a message towards his team," said Sharper, who wasn't merely speculating.

"I know this for sure. I talked to Mike, and after the game I asked him about the handshake, and he said that there is some bad blood there. And he did not appreciate what Coach Harbaugh said postgame after the first victory."

If you're watching, Coach Harbaugh, NFL Films captured Tomlin repeatedly referred to his troops as "tough team" as he shook each player's hand on their way into the visitors' locker room at M&T Bank Stadium, which lasted hosted a victor on Dec. 5, 2010 ... that's right, Tomlin's Steelers.
