Things don't look good, but they didn't look good when the team ran the table as a wild card all the way to the Superbowl.
Great team, great owner, great coaches and great fans. Who could ask for more?
Oh and as Bob Dilan sang...we're knock, knock, knocking on "Seven's" door.
Happy Thanksgiving to all NFL fans from Steeler Nation.

Crud...I heard the reports last night, but nothing seemed confirmed. I guess it is now. What a crappy time for Charlie to go down too.

It would be nice time now, for the Special Teams to NOT allow a return TD, and for Arians to get Mendenhall the ball more and run like we used to in the old days, circa Jerome Bettis era.

This week I'm all for it. Shorten this game as much as possible. One concern though. In order to shorten any game you need to grind out first downs. Let us pray.

Well - all I know is if the Ravens don't win with Big Ben sitting out, we're not going to hear the end of it on here from the Steelers fans ... lol

Tell you what,(with hands clapped together in prayer), if the Steelers win, I promise not to say a negative word. Lord, I promise. Not a single negative word or inference. I'll just walk around in a foggy cloud repeatedly saying, "It's a miracle", until my wife tells me to shut up.

I would not be surprised to see the ravens re-gift the gift and hand the win right back to you. They've been doing it all year.

I won't believe it until I see him standing on the sideline in a protective Motorcycle helmet and clipboard while his offense is on the field with Dennis "I'm from Oregon and we choke under pressure" Dixon.

you never know, Mendenhall could be the guy. This would be a good game for him to show his mettle...well for the whole line and he.

Perhaps....But the last Time Mendenhall played the Ravens....he got the shit Knocked out of him...and was done for the season...I hope the Kid...and the Line....show up tonight....I think they should let Dixon take off and Run as well...If the defence has a shut-out....the offence will still need to score several TD's....just to compensate for the Points the ST give up....
