Quite the disparities b/w all those rankings.

And that article from Pittsburgh is definitely bulletin board material.

That Ron Cook Guy from the Pittsburgh Post Gazette writes like a 5th grader and comes off like a blind whitetrash homer instead of an insightful sports writer! He makes the SUN look like the NY Times.

Ravens are a 5-11 team. One dimensional offenses get shut down by good defenses...we haven't faced one yet. One more injury to the secondary and passing attacks will exploit our lack of coverage ability. This season will go downhill very quickly.

haha wow whoever wrote that article from pittsburgh must be smoking something. They may be the better team but that was last year buddy. This upcoming Monday we will see which D will dominate the whole game. Whoever wrote that article is crazy for making a very bold prediction especially after the steelers got whooped badly by the philly's D.

You may be right, but the offense is showing more "dimension" than it did last year. Not much more effective but it's keeping teams from putting 8 in the box and they have been able to hold the ball for the majority of the 4th quarter when the other team KNOWS they are going to run. The proof will come when they face a good defense. And the what if injury game is a problem for any team, ask the Patriot fans.

We will see what the Ravens are Monday Night, they are usually terrible on national TV. The offense has to play a real defense now, we will see if they get smacked around like children or do the smacking.

You really don't know much about the Ravens do you? Did you see Leonard? You think they got Zibokowski and Nakamura for nothing? The only positions I ever doubt the Ravens choices at are WR and moreso QB. Looks like they did good on QB so far.

You're a year late on that comment, buddy. For now, this team is healthy and the secondary is only missing Landry. Cameron will want to throw the ball early on, and then he runs it when the game is in the bag so as to not turn the ball over. Show a little optimism about a Bmore team for once.

BTW, change your name because Trembley is the man.

The proof will come when they face a good offense as well...since they haven't yet. And don't try and tell me that the Browns and Bengals are good offenses because of stuff they did last year, because they stink this year.

Now I can see why most people on here hate you. Why don't you move to Pittsburgh. Negative, Negative, Negative!

I don't have to tell you they have good offenses. I'm not a sports writer. But most of those guys who cover sports for a living seem to think that they do have pretty good offenses, so I'll agree with their opinion at least for now.

Lots of pluses and accolades on the defensive side . Big question is how much is the offense going to be able to score. Flacco will have to complete some mid-range passes in this game if the Ravens are going to win.

Prediction: Ravens 12 Steelers 9

You think any team in the league fears our passing attack? Don't be a moron. About 250 yards in 2 games. How many Rushing yards? way more than that. Sounds one-dimensional to me.
