Keep in mind... there is ONE team in the NFL purpose built to beat the Steelers. That's the Baltimore Ravens. They finally did it when Ben was playing. Big whoop.

Other items to help keep the perspective:
-This was so much more important to them.
-First game of the season with a lot of vets who didn't get their normal amount of prepwork.

I'd say the Packers, Saints and Pats are built to beat us too (though not intentionally).

Our vets shouldn't need the prep work. That was supposed to be OUR advantage.

Look, I'm not panicked, but saying that this is more important to the Ravens and they are built to beat us is not a consolation; it is a cause for concern.

The whole game was cause for concern, but honestly, I'm not worried. If the team doesn't rebound and start taking it seriously I will worry.
