Talking trash is exactly why Baltimore is considered such a dump by the rest of the nation. Grow up.
Yeah, everyone also knows what a dump DC is outside of the White house, and let's not forget DC is always right up there in leading the nation in MURDERS! But yeah, I hate to pile on your already miserable pathetic bitter life by reminding you that Baltimore looks at DC and all the people in it as their little stupid neighbors who wish they were tough.

it's funny how steeler fans speak and show the fear in their pathetic minds.

We Ravens fans don't think twice about playing the soft steelers in Baltimore, they can't touch us in Bmore, hell, they actually got beat up by the Ravens in Pissburgh, nobody fears the steelers in Baltimore, we all know they are all bark no bite.

Good thing for the steelers that they got a gift from a rookie QB in Flacco the first time we played or the division would be completely wrapped up after this sunday by the Ravens.

Ravens have to do the following to win against the Steelers:
1) Shutdown Hines Ward & Big Ben
2) GET THE LEAD by at least 7-10pts
3) Continue to play stifling DEFENSE
4) Shutdow Santonio Holmes from catching the long ball
5) Block James Harrison
6) Prevent Polamalu from getting pics
7) Stop Heath Miller underneath

The Ratbirds are in trouble if the Steelers Offense shows up to play.

Good point. I hope your right and it holds true. One things for sure, we are in for as good a football as possible, and as fans can not ask for more. GO RAVENS!

Too bad there will be more Steelers fans at M&T than Ratbird fans. Steeler nation is everywhere! It's nice having home field advantage at away games.

The Steelers don't worry me. They almost lost to a mediocre Dallas team with a QB that threw 3 int's and they gave up two fumbles as well. Pitts burgh had a difficult time stopping a rookie running back (88 yds on 23 carries) and Rothlesburger was sacked 5 times. The Cowboys gave the game away in the end. I hope Roma plays like this in two weeks.
I love your point of view. Your probably right. I feel better already, thanks.

Don't count on it, Bud. If I was your I'd be loooking over my shoulder. Or between your legs, because your head is directly up your fanny.

Good game as always like I said everyone is still going to think we beat up on a bad team so be it, we'll just continue to kick azz on the weekend and take names after.

GO RAVENS!!!

This game will come down to experience, Big Ben vs. Joe Flacco. I'll take Ben this year.

It seems like the Ravens are really believing in themselves, and feel like they are as entitled to the division lead as the Steelers. But, I wonder if they're not a little over-confident right now.

David,
Thanks for admitting that all these other "Rivalries" are really manufactured. Redskins fans don't care. They only face us every few years (when it counts) and in preseason scrimmages.

Indianapolis should be a rivalry, but we have had trouble turning it into one by losing repeatedly.

Pittsburgh, however, is a blood-boiling, tooth-snarling, bare-chested brawl of a rivalry.

They escaped with a win on their home turf, but that will not happen on Sunday. They gotta come home to Daddy and we have a a$$-whoopin in store.

The gift in the first game was not Flacco's fumble, it was Jerrett Johnson's stupid personal foul that gave the Steelers life and the game. That's over and done with now. The undisciplined Ravens of the past are just that in the past. That's why this team is so exciting. They are playing good hard-nosed, intergerity laced football.

If the Steelers and Ravens end up with the same record, the Steelers will win the division based on having a better conference record. The Ravens have already lost three conference games. So far, the Steelers have lost only one conference game [make that two, if the Ravens beat them].
Thanks.

You might wanna rethink your trip. Read the front page! Hard economic times means less security (especially to protect Squeelers like yourself!).

Lighten up Francis, this is a message board, and these types of games is what defines the NFL.

Over-confident? "Gee Bob we think we might be able to win if the stars align and there's an eclipse."

Overconfidence is manadatory...the only teams that aren't overconfident are the ones who are clearly not going to the playoffs.
