As a Steeler fan living in Balto among the Ravens fans, thanks Troy for a terrific year & especially welcoming Joe Flacco to to the NFL. 2008 gave Steeler fans a dream season. Representing in Balto was even sweeter with the 3 & 0 record, punctuated by Troy's interception & 40 yd Touchdown return! Troy is the best at his position as proved in the 2008 series in Balto because of his impact on games! Ed Reed was no factor in the AFC championship game. Troy made several game changing plays & ensured the win! Go Steelers!!

The interception was pretty exciting, but almost as cool was the play where leaped over the line and stopped Flacco on a 4th and 1 while hanging upside down.

Don't forget the naked bootleg by Flacco where Troy got up on him so quick it was like he was shot out of a cannon. Incredible closing speed.

Ed "brain-bruise" Reed didn't have one big play against the steelers last season. he did recover a fumble but then got tackled by max starks! lol. Holmes has juked reed so many times it's funny! talk about punk'd... Hines Ward has that dude way off his game. it's funny. Ward has KOed reed too many times. you see reed looking out of his ear hole trying to keep track of Ward. SMACK! says Hitman Ward. OUCH who HIT me? says reed. lol!

on the other side Troy just keeps making game changing play after play. Nobody on the ravens offense has an answer for him.

Gonna be some purple bird b!tch feathers floating all over the place this season.

LET'S GO SIXBURGH! LET'S GO BLACK AND GOLD!!
