    But you said the WRs were "even." That's what I was referring to, is all.

    The ravens are clearly better in one category. Run game, both because of the RBs and oline.

    That is what separates them from us.

    Given a Raven caliber run game the Ravens could not play with us, and we would dominate this league.

    How is it then that CHARLIE BATCH beat the Ravens?

    Given how superior their oline and run game are they should crush us every time.

    We can compete with them using aging backup QBs. THAT does not seem like better coaching to me.

    Ben has not been clutch since he lost the SB to GB. He wasn't clutch then and he hasn't been clutch since.
    Yeah.. I knew Flacco would be a problem the first time we played him. I think we have him figured out but the teams who arent in our division... he's abusing them.

    Every so often we lose to Cleveland or Cinci... doesnt mean they are better that year.

Wallace, of 2012, superior to those guys? Not even close. And don't be too quick to cast our TEs better than theirs. Pitta is a rising star and Dickson is better than our #2 TE.

    And the level of superiority at RB can't be overlooked; not only are they better there, it's my a light year. Rice is one of the very best backs in the league and Pierce is better than ANY of our backs, period, and he is 2nd string.
    This. !!!

    The Steelers matched up well vs. the Ravens this season...hey, the Rams matched up well with the 49ers, too.
    Does anyone here think the Rams were nearly as good a team as the Niners this year?

    Maybe next year the Steelers will be better than the Ravens. I sure hope so. But this season, if you go by their records, and where they ended up? Not that close.
