LOL @ jp03 I was thinking the same thing... Listen to all the steeler fans out there, Im not hating on you guys at all. Im a Jets fan and I was impartial to this game though I picked the Ravens to win. When they were slaughtering the Steelers in the first half I was mad cause I wanted a good game... but I didn't want the second half to be a complete mismatch either and thats exactly what happened. I really do think that if Ravens would have played their best game for four quarters and Steelers would have played their best game for four quarters, Ravens really shoulda won. Better receivers, better TE, better running game and evenly matched defense. Numbers tell you Steelers over Ravens but if you saw the Ravens defense last few weeks they were as good as anyone defensively.

Only thing Steelers really have them on is at QB.

@ jp03 I'll be honest I was okay with the three man rush since they had 8 guys supposedly covering the different routes... it should have been such an easy pick and with 2 minutes to go and 3 TO's, Ravens could have easily won that game... but tanking is the ideal word here.

Refs miss things, make mistakes, irritates me a great deal sometimes, but a few missed calls don't make the game. I couldn't believe how strong the Ravens started, but they fell apart.

I felt the same when the Pack Falcons game started, we might be in trouble but the Pack kicked it into high gear, all areas of the game (well, special teams needs some work), off and running! Woohoo!

Well then maybe people need to start giving Ben Roethlisberger his due, and stop claiming that he's only as good as the players around him.

Wow! if yesterday was not a day for 2nd half blow outs.
First you have the Ravens handing Pittsburgh their arse, then in the 3rd and 4th, the Steelers defense turns on the heat and the Millegeville child lover is rating 100+%!

Next you have the Falcon's running kick returns 100+ yards then the Pack bangs out 35 points in a matter of minutes.

What will we have today? Would love to see the Jet's and Hawks pull it out. Now that would be an upset in a half.
ABP!

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.

I believe it was a good call for PI, I am just saying that I have seen more contact not get called. I counted 2 drops and they were in big situations, but the Boldin one was a tough catch and I see starting wr drop ones like that all the time, and the TJ one I'm not even sure he was going to hold on to that even if he would have got his hands around that because how Gay was closing and swatted at the ball I was expecting him to drop it. The only reason that play even happened is because Gay dropped what would have been the game winning interception 2 plays before that. I give you your points, but other people on here are acting like the Ravens SHOULD have won this game, when the reality is that they should have never been in this game. Only one time in this game did they drive down the feild and get a score. The other scores was a scooped up fumble TD, the other was set up by a fumble on the 16 yard line and the 3rd was a decent drive from inside midfield. It is no fluke that a NFL team has just 126 total yards, that is great defense. Realistically the Steelers cranked up the D, which was already playing very well in the 1st half minus a few penalties, and the Ravens O couldn't take the pressure. I think everybody thinks the comeback started with the Ray Rice fumble, but it really started a couple of plays before that with the sack and the incomplete pass when Flacco was looking for the screen and the D took it away(halftime adjustment, the few yards the Ravens O had in the 1st half was on screens) which started putting the pressure on Flacco and the Ravens. Flacco doesn't do good in pressure situations, he is a good QB but that is not his strong suit. He historically plays bad in the games against the Steelers because of that. Ever Ravens possession in the second half involved a sack and the were forced to convert 3rd and longs against the Steeler D(a recipe for disaster). As for the 3 man rush thing, this is nothing new there are plenty of coaches out there who believe that Ben is at his best when he is pressured so plenty of teams would rather take their chances rushing 3 and dropping everyone else. Sometimes that actually works, I have seen it with my own eyes, but when he is on it doesn't matter what you do to him, he will kill you.

I wish he would get his credit. For some reason he never gets respect. Without a doubt he is one of the few NFL elite QBs.

Yeah, they did. The Packers took it to a level in the second half that the Falcons couldn't match.

According to the broadcasters if I heard correctly, next Sunday will be only the second time in NFL history that the Packers and Bears have squared off in the postseason. The last time was a week after the attack on Pearl Harbor. Hard to believe considering the age of that rivalry.

Well it was impossible for a lot of those years for it to happen, but yeah, still pretty crazy. Lord knows I'm excited.
