our defense has suffered quite a few injuries this season too ruthless, though I agree that they have been hit harder.
I see little evidence of the system "breaking down". Just very solid, if somewhat unspectacular play. The lack of sacks and TO's is worrisome going forward, but there is no doubt that the steelers are a far superior defensive unit than the ravens this season.
unlike the last couple of years, I don't see the ravens as a real threat to go very far in the playoffs this season. They are a very flawed football team and have been extremely fortunate in several of their wins. I would relish the chance to go into baltimore with a healthy ben and end their season. (again)
They & their fans can talk all the crap they want but as Levon Flowers said so perfectly - they're "paper champions" - & even the Raven's players know it - it don't mean a thing if you don't have a ring.
If the shoe was on the other foot you know they & their fans would point out that they weren't at full-strength - especially with our Franchise QB out & that the record I would point to - whats the record when Ben plays? And again, they know thats the difference. In the end, all that matters is getting into the playoffs, & despite the difference in record this year, there's NOTHING they have outside of Rice & Ngata that I'd want here on the Steelers...
It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust & sweat & blood...
NO. And I'm looking forward to the opportunity to knock them out of the playoffs.
LMFAO Hawaiiansteel! That's one for the ages! Freaking love it. WOOOOOOOOOOOO!
all is right in the universe once gain. Do you guys rememeber the start of the Ravens/Steeler games and how they would beat us at home and we would beat them at their stadium ?
Yes, they own us.
Put these two teams on a neutral field together with all of the players healthy and Steelers win 8 out of 10 times.
