No I wasn't talking about you Joe from bmore I was talking about the other guy. I sure am excited about this game and look at all the activity from the fans. We can't imagine what the players are feeling right now! How can those guys sleep? I guess they're pros and used to it or something. I'll raise a beer to your rookie quarterback Flacco and wish him success next week and miserable failure tomorrow! ha ha ha. Hey got drunk in a bar in baltimore one time, it was in an old looking part of town next to some a harbor or ariver or something. I can't remember the name but is sure was fun. at least I think it was.
Thanks. Back at you dude. Have a great weekend, other than the game of course.

"It's so loud and crazy there," Roethlisberger said. "Their defense gets excited there. If you look at them, it's amazing, they're such a different team when they play at home.

"That's probably the place I hate to play at the most."

Roethlisberger has no good memories from Baltimore. The Steelers are 0-4 there during his era, although he has played just 1 1/2 games there. He sat out last season to get ready for the playoffs and missed the '05 game because of a knee injury.

Roethlisberger made his NFL debut in Baltimore early in the '04 season after starter Tommy Maddox went down with a serious elbow injury. His first pass was incomplete, his second intercepted. "I remember being scared to death," he said.

It's surprising Roethlisberger remembers anything about the '06 game. He was sacked a career-high nine times, including one brutal, but clean, hit from linebacker Bart Scott. "Oh, yeah," Roethlisberger said when asked if that's the hardest he has been hit. "I remember seeing my feet go up in the air. Then, I remember not being able to breathe."

Pretty much sums it up eh??

From the NFL rulebook it appears that there are two ways to score a touchdown, per Rule 11, Section 2, Article 1:

It is a touchdown (3-38):
(a) when a runner advances from the field of play and the ball touches the opponents’ goal line (plane); or
(b) while inbounds any player catches or recovers a loose ball (3-2-3) on or behind the opponents’ goal line.

In 1(b) it appears that “on or behind the opponents’ goal line” may refer to the player, and not the ball. Therefore, any inbounds player who is on or behind the opponents’ goal line, and who comes into full possession of the ball will be ruled to have scored a touchdown.

Here, now take your loss like men and quit whining!

We're used to it. It doesn't bother the Ravens or their coaching staff. Terrible offense & over-rated defense.

anyway I guess it doesn't matter if the ball breaks the plane if the guy has two feet down in the endzone when he catches the ball. Give credit to holmes he made an amazing play to win the game.

Absolutely, an impressive catch. It seems to me, though, that Holmes needs to develop more spatial awareness out there. There are so many plays this season where he doesn't quite get his feet in bounds, or he runs before the catch (and drops the ball), etc. If he was more aware of exactly where he was, and he can tuck that ball a little more, or stay a couple of inches farther into the end zone, or twist as he falls, we wouldn't be having this conversation about breaking planes. Easy for me to say from my couch, of course, and I don't mean it as a real knock on Holmes. It just seems like he still has some work to do developing awareness as a receiver. But he will, and he's going to be awesome.

FYI. holmes did the right thing by dragging his feat. this is a new one to me too.

NFL rulebook:

'Should a receiver make a legal catch of the ball with both feet in bounds in the end zone, a touchdown shall be awarded even if no part of the ball was deemed to break the plane of the goal line while in possession of the receiving player.'
