    Watching the Ravens.....

    ....as of now, I think they are heads and shoulders above Pgh right now. We aren't even in the same league with them. Not only is their D still formidable, their O is actually explosive now. I think Balt. is a true contender, and Pgh is hovering around average. But it's a long season and things can change. But right now? Pgh isn't in their class and would probably lose by 20 or 30 points.

    It's not a good feeling. We wait all year, for this? I know, we are spoiled, but that doesn't change that seeing Pgh so beat up so quickly, and suffering from not very good draft picks to re-stock, is not a fun state of being.

    I think we are seeing the "real" Bumgals. Last year was an illusion of being good that we see every 3-4 years before they evaporate back to sucking.

    I don't think the BUMGALS are teh BUMGALS of old. They have offensive weapons and soem pretty decent guys on defense.
    I don't think they are as bad as we saw last night, but I also see an 8-8 season ahead of them

    I also peg them at 8-8.

    For all the fear of the Ravens, lets let the season play out some and then see what happens if injuries start hitting them. Remember how they destroyed us in game #1 last year and laid an egg in Game #2? It's a long season. They are good but not unbeatable.

    Umm, I'm not sure what "laying an egg" means to you, but if I recall correctly, they beat us in game 2 as well. That pretty much is not "laying an egg" even thought the game was much closer. Flacco beat us in the final minute. I am not waving a white flag, by any means, but they sure looked strong and we sure didn't.

    Then they will have to work twice as hard to evaporate back to sucking, which is a real good bet.

    I felt worse last season when the Ravens beat the heck out of us 35-7 in the first game and yet we still made it to the playoffs...

    I don't think he's crowning them, but the Ravens are doing two things tonight that caused the Steelers to look pedestrian last night: run the no huddle and play good pressure defense. The Steelers are going to have to solve some mysteries to play effectively against the Ravens.
