This One Is Going to Hurt

Full story: The Washington Post

No amount of scrubbing can sanitize the AFC championship game. There's nothing the NFL can do to get the Ravens and Steelers to be nice to each other tomorrow in Pittsburgh.

Great Column. You failed to mention the Pittsburgh curse. Living in Baltimore it is amazing anytime a Baltimore Team in any sport plays Pittsburgh for a playoff or championship, Pittsburgh Wins

1971 Pirates over the Orioles
Mid Seventies - Bert Jones, Rodger Carr, and Lydell Mitchell lost 3 playoff games. All to Pittsburg.

1979 Willie (I have pep pills if you need them) Stargell and the Pirates beat the Baltimore Orioles in the World Series. Baltimore had a 3 games to 1 lead and blew it.

Ravens have had about 500 winning percentage against the Steelers since their inception into the league in 1996. It usually pans out the Ravens win at home and the Steelers (pronounced Stillers) win at home. Pittsburgh got lucky as usual in the first two games. The inspiration of OJ Brigance will carry the Ravens to victory.

Kind of doubt that buddy, but we'll give you and A for a positive attitude! The ravens can get real emotional if they want that aint going to win them the game. You see, the Steelers play with skill and intensity emotions aint the driving force, it's execution. the ravens are driven by emotion from their bug-eyed middle linebacker. what goes up must come down and them ravens are on the downslide. aint enough left in the tank to beat the Steelers

I agree - emotion doesn't win football games - good players win football games.

With the way that Big Ben was playing last week and the blocking of his front line I would say that the Raven's defense will have more of a difficult time with the Steelers this go around. Not to mention the defense and the role they have been on - The Steeler's defense is menacing in not only stopping the advance of the football but in the dangers of interceptions and fumbled balls.

That being said I still think it will be a good game and I know I will be rooting for my black and gold :)

In the series, the Steelers have 16 wins, the Ravens have 10...so not quite a .500 percentage, but I appreciate your thoughts.

Did not know that O.J. Brigance played for the Ravens, I do remember him playing in the CFL with Baltimore and Toronto. I didn't know he had ALS...sad to hear.

It'll be a great game and a great battle throughout. A contact 'chess match.'

GO STEELERS!!!

Tomorrow's game is going to be a brutal one. Both defenses are fantastic. Flacco seemed to be real conservative in the Titans game and i think he'll definately be throwing more passes on sunday. All of us Baltimore natives in Portland Oregon support you guys and have a good feeling that tomorrow is going to be a good day for us. I was in 6th grade in 2001 when we won the superbowl and ive carried that pride all the way to Portland. KICK THEIR ASS!!! We'll be rootin for ya from the West Coast!
