I just want to say about my picks that I should be 2-0 but the Ravens decided to stop playing in the third quarter... Hopefully my picks for tomorrow line up. Jets and Bears.

Then I got the Pack and Jets for superbowl... A guy can dream...

LOL, I was coming on here to say we won't be seeing him on here again.

I have seen a lot more contact not get called, for example Cromartie got away several times with contact and holding Steelers receivers in the game earlier this season including a PI in the end zone on the last drive of the game which would have put the Steelers on the 1 yard line for the go ahead TD. So no I am not kidding you.

You missed that. There was a person who was on here trying to argue that the media doesn't pick southern teams to win because they are bias, lol. We tried to tell him/her that it had nothing to do with where they were from, it was just because the Packers were better than the Falcons period.

People are just jealous of Pittsburgh's athletic prowess. Don't take it personally.

Was green bay that good or Atlanta that bad last night..?

I was rooting for GB (partly because of that annoying southern guy on here...)

Honestly, Aaron Rogers is on fire...playing as well as anyone right now.....making Jordy nelson look like Jerry Rice.....jeez

LOL, I was rooting for them also for the same reason. And to think I actually liked the Falcons before that, but that poster just rubbed me the wrong way.

@ Restonrunner86. We could have this debate all day on whether it was Steelers offensive prowess or Ravens completely tanking, but we've all seen Ravens play in the playoffs in the before and we know that that last half was not Raven football at all. Granted, Steelers stunk it up in the first half but they didn't give up. After the Ravens turned the ball over and you heard the crowd get into it with something like 10 minutes to go in the third quarter, they played like subs.

They just gave up and like I said they gave the opportunity to the Steelers to win that game. After that, it became so easy for the Steelers it wasn't even a game after that... What did they have 4 yards of offense in the second half. Boldin dropping a wide open TD that would have put them ahead. And even after all the screw-ups Joe Flacco had a beautiful set up on 4th and 19 and TJ caught his man and it hit him right in the chest.... He was right next to the out of bounds line too. Ravens tanked that game. Any unbiased fan will tell you that... That wasn't Steeler prowess as much as complete Raven garbage...

MAdison out of control head down ran right into the receiver. Now if thats not Interference what is? Love when fans bring up plays in other games...no **** the refs are inconsistent ...that is a given. Because one was not a penalty does mean this one wasn't either.

That said, i still give the Steelers credit ...they won the game fair and square. Penalties were not the reason. Drops , turmovers and a 3 man rush at crucial moments of the game did the Ravens in. Why would you EVER give Big Ben time to throw like that willingly. They tried it like 5 times on third and long and got burned EVERY time.
