Anyone care to have a civil, adult conversation about today's game? I don't mean finger pointing at the other teams players and their past. For those that don't know, I'm a diehard Ravens fan, BUT I don't have "Ravens blinders" on. If a team played good or bad, I'll be the 1st to admit it. With that being said........

The Steelers offense was pathetic. Ben should have just took a sack on 2 of those interceptions. I think what happened was a below average offense ran into one of the leagues top defenses. Ray Lewis causing fumbles 20 yards downfield, Ngata getting through the O-line at will, how many times was Heinz Ward put on his back?

On the other hand, the Ravens offense surprisingly good. Flacco looked sharp, O-line opened up huge holes for Rice and Williams, receivers ran good routes and caught the ball.

Your thoughts?

There is no discussion. The Ravens won in all three phases today. The game should have been 63-7 with the way the Steeler offense was trying to lose. Classy work by Harbaugh to call a fake FG on an extra point attempt up by 4 scores, though.

hey im a steeler fan as you know but there was nothing wrong with going for 2. the steelers should have stopped it plain and simple they just stunk it up today.

I didn't like it when the Steelers ran it up against the Raiders, and I don't like it now either.

At what point to you call the dogs off? That score put them up by 22. Last year, in the playoffs, the Steelers scored like 28 unanswered points. On the 1st 3 scores, the Ravens obviously saw a hole in the defense. The Steelers just got lazy. You got to play the whole game. Just because you're losing, you can't take plays off. If the Ravens were up by 45, it would be a different story.

You call 2 points instead 1 running it up??!!


I think they took the opportunity, since they were winning by so much, to practice a little. Can't say I blame 'em.

The only hope I have going away from that debachery is the Ravens woke a sleeping giant in the Steelers and they respond appropriately from here on out. Apparently someone forgot to tell Flacco and the Ravens they weren't supposed to be able to beat the Steelers when Ben was starting.

The funny thing is, typically against the Steelers, your hopes for Rice wouldn't be that good. Undoubtedly his best game against the Steelers.

That's one of those decisions that looks good now but if we would have won 21-20 it would have been the worst decision of the year.

I agree that he wasn't trying to run the score up heck it's only one point.

That's what I have been trying to tell myself. I hope it's true.
