Well you know they're going to put them a week apart just when we're at our most vulnerable. NFL schedule makers are some of the biggest trolls in the country.

He is a loser at life...He says "we" because he lives vicariously through the ravens.

Ben is one year older, one year further beaten due to a horrendous o-line. Flacco no longer has Cam Cameron holding him back and what a difference it has made.
The Rats don't own the division sport...the Steelers just let division opponents borrow it from time to time:

Steelers 20 division titles
Bungles 7
Clowns 6
Rats 4

The Steelers are undefeated (9-0) when playing division opponents in playoff games:

3-0 vs. the Rats
2-0 vs. the Clowns
1-0 vs. the Bungles
3-0 vs. the then Houston Oilers

The Steelers own winning records vs each division opponent:

63-57 vs the Clowns
53-33 vs the Bungles
21-15 vs the Rats

Think of the AFCN as a cage made of STEEL and owned by a Steeler... and in this cage are three little animals, a tiger, a dawg, and a raven ratbird.
The Steeler on occasion will let one of you filthy animals out of the cage and let you become the division champs.

Back into the cage next year ratbird.

How is this type of filth allowed? If I started calling Steeler fans "losers at life" I'd be banned in a heartbeat. He has three posts in a row designed to lure me into the lowest of low type of conversation. You guys really want this type of malcontent roaming your forum? I'm not going to address anything he said because nothing good can come of it. Disgusting.

I really hope not. Although Ben was injured for both games having them almost back to back was definitely anti-climatic. I want a week one showdown because only because I am so hungry for more football and nothing says football to me more than Ravens vs. Steelers. I know it's probably not the best for either of our teams, especially for the Ravens.

How are the Ravens "ahead" of the Steelers?

If we are talking about a historical perspective, it's not even close. The Steelers are lightyears ahead of the Ravens in terms of success, tradition, and fan base.

What about the present? I think the Steelers are in a different phase than the Ravens. Pittsburgh is starting to experience age on defense, have to work with cutting spending on big contracts, and having to turnover their veterans and bring in some younger players through free agency or the draft. But that's not new. Every team goes through it. It's just that different teams go through it at different times. It's part of the game.

If you want to argue Baltimore is "younger" than Pittsburgh, then okay, I agree. They have more young "up and coming" players than Pittsburgh at RB, WR, and a few positions on defense. So what though? The Steelers have plenty of young guys, but they have to step up and make an impact. If they can do that, then I don't see why these teams aren't on the same page here.

Nothing matters except RIGHT NOW......RIGHT NOW they are the Champs. I can;t stand the Ravens and never will but at this point they are the team to beat. Great motivation!!

Every time the Ravens have a better year than the Steelers we hear this about the Ravens taking charge, or being in charge of the division. They won it last year, good for them, congratulations. Their fans should enjoy the victory.

However, at this point everybody is 0-0 and nothing is going to be given. Nobody is in charge of the division and believing media hype can get a team in trouble.

If you look at it that way, then okay fine I agree. Steelers have to go out there and knock them off next year. It's been a few years since we have won the division. There would be nothing like dethroning the defending champs.

Yep, it's a new year. Everything is earned, not handed out. The Steelers will have to demonstrate they deserve to win.
