CAMP CUPCAKEOriginally Posted by hawaiiansteelPost-Baltimore thoughtsOriginally Posted by Jooseror perhaps it's giving all those folks days off at Camp Cupcake. No one was ready to physically dominate today. Above all the flub ups, this team looked weak today. They were flat out pushed around on both sides of the ball.

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.
