Balt. proved that they made the right choice by keeping their group together, as Pgh proved they were right to do so all the way up to this season. Now it appears Pgh most likely needs to get rid of some of the old guys, as they just stunk it up for much of the season. I would love for Pgh to resemble a team like Seattle, who is young and really coming on. And the Pats, Packers and Vikings are all in the top 7 youngest teams as well. When Dallas their first SB in their 90s run, in 1993, they were the youngest team in the entire NFL.
    But as it was the Ravens only had 10 wins, two more than us. What if they lost Flacco for three games? There wins were narrow as it was. They are 8-8 or even worse.

    What if Ben was not injured? Not only did we lose two very winnable games in division (we win the north if that happens) Ben was not right after he came back.

    Pre-injury Roethlisberger had completed 66.1 percent of his passes for 2,287 yards, 17 touchdowns and only four interceptions and had been sacked a surprisingly low 18 times.

    It took Ben all of THREE GAMES after injury to throw as many picks as he threw all season prior to his injury.

    The Ravens were horrible down the stretch, we easily win this division if not for the injury to Ben.
