You can add a 2nd and 15 and giving up 13 yards to allow a 51 yard FG to end the half. The defense is difficult to watch tonight. Two balls that could have been picked, Ike is struggling and they're making Flacco look like the best quarterback in the league.

The Steelers are fortunate to be in this game.

What? Ike struggling? Fortunate to be in the game? Ike's having a good game so far- and it's 9-6.............

I'm much more worried about BA's return to the offensive coordinator who is unable to call plays that make sense. Hopefully he hits his head off of something on the way into the locker room and snaps back to last week's BA.

The Baltimore defense might have something to do with it too. Hoping the offense makes some adjustments now...

Add a 3rd and 5....The 3rd down play by the D is pathetic. Embarrassing.

Ben's INT was ridiculous.

Ben's INT blew major as s though

the Ravens were 14-of-21 on 3rd down, definitely a stat the Steelers defense needs to improve on if they wanna win the big games.

Ike struggled, he didn't give up anything big, but Boldin was getting open when Flacco needed him. Ike didn't play as well last night as he has this season, IMO.

The Ravens didn't turn first half drives into TDs or the game could have been worse than it was and again, it's just my opinion. Against lesser opponents the Steelers win the game.

That's it? 2/3 of their third down tries resulted in drive sustaining 1st downs. That's a high percentage. That's why they had the ball for 8 more minutes and the final drive had 2 or 3 third down sustaining pickups. The Ravens third efficiency was a very big factor in the final result of this game.

considering that the Saints were leading the NFL at about a 56% third down conversion rate, yes...that is a big deal.

Yeah, saying two thirds is a little over half is a ridiculous statement.

That's like saying Tom Brady completes only a little over half of his passes, so he's only a marginally better passer than Tim Tebow. :wink:
