watching the Steelers lately they remind me of the Ali rope a dope style he used to beat Foreman.. he just let Foreman pound him until he was out of energy.. then Ali knocked him out.

Our O is the same way.. it's like we just lean on the ropes for 3 Quarters... then in the 4th we get to work. As crazy as it sounds when Holmes fumbled at the 10 I thought... FG. The Ravens will only gt a FG if they are lucky.

that's true...we seem to wait until the clutch moments to catch passes and break big plays

It is rough to watch... but when has it ever been easy to watch Big Ben in action? Dude really is all about the drama...

I think he does it on purpose... seriously dude is Dramatical.

I wanna see us open up a game against the flaming thumbtacks like
we opened against indy in the SB run.

I will never forget sitting there, mouth hanging open, wondering:
"who the hell is this and what did they do with the Steelers?" as we
hit pass after pass to TEs and WRs marching down the field to score.

THAT's what I want for Christmas this year...Yessssaahhh!!!

Rope a dope = dropped passes, fumbles, bad field position

We could save a little less energy imho.
