    Boy, I didn't see that one coming.

    Mike Tomlin took it easy on the team throughout training camp and it showed Sunday.

    I don't expect Tomlin to suddenly start brow-beating or physically beating up a veteran squad, but it was obvious the team wasn't ready to play from the start - beginning with Rice's long run on the first play of the game.

    It was a humbled locker room after that game. The Steelers were beaten physically and mentally by the Ravens.

    But, it is still just one game. It will be interesting to see how this team bounces back next week at home against Seattle, a team they should trounce.

    More importantly, it will be interesting to see how this team works this week in preparation.

    The Rams' offense featuring weapons such as Marshall Faulk, Torrey Holt, and Isaac Bruce were known as "The Greatest Show on Turf"

    The Steelers' offense featuring weapons such as Le'Veon Bell and Martavis Bryant should be known as "The Greatest Show on Grass"

    This has nothing at all to do with respective playing surfaces at the Edward Jones Dome vs. Heinz Field.
