A tale of 2 teams. Compare the way the Steelers & the Ravens have voiced their opinion of the new Brady rule & you see a sharp contrast in how a professional sports team conducts themselves. The Ravens whine, point fingers & blame the officials for their loss. The Ravens display no character. The Steelers on the other hand voice their concerns in a professional manner without the childish behavior. Asking questions through the proper channels & not throwing a hissy fit before the media is Steeler football. Whining like a baby & pointing fingers is the 'Raven Way'. Ravens can learn some lessons here & I hope Harbaugh takes back control of this team from Sissy Ray. I'm proud to be part of Steeler Nation. The best team & organization in the NFL. GO STEELERS!!

very good points all. after watching the pat ravens game I can only imagine the front office is having second thoughts to signing an old linebacker that no other team in the league was interested in. he gave up a rushing TD to tom brady forchristsakes! LMAO!!!

Don't have any issue with how either reacted, the rule is just that stupid. Can't hit him in the head, can't hit him in the legs. Even if you're blocked into him there's still a penalty. Pretty soon there will be another rule where you can't hit them in the chest 'cause some high profile qb got his ribs cracked.

Either redefine the rules or say screw it and just put them in a dress with giant red nerf pads.
