There is not much left of the Steelers regular season. They have clinched the division, and they are back in the playoffs where they belong. However, with a win and a Chargers loss to the Raiders the Steelers could snag the #3 seed which means they would play either the Browns or Titans. Regardless though it doesn't matter because the game will be played in Pittsburgh.

The Ravens have sunk to a new low by losing their last 9. This goes to show that last year was obviously a fluke and was kind of the last gasp from a team that is aging quickly. The Ravens have 6 starters on IR so things aren't looking to good for them right now and the stars are aligning quite nicely for the Steelers to complete their Revenge Tour Act II. The last time these two teams met the Steelers had the game decided at halftime and called off the dogs in the second half and cruised to a 38-7 victory. From my records I would say another 20 some points and a shutout by the "D" would complete the tour quite nicely.

The Steelers have a lot of injuries themselves but the backups, well most of the backups, have filled in quite nicely. The biggest loss is probably going to be Marvel Smith at LT. If Starks can be half as good as Smith was then the Steelers might have a decent chance. Can't really say much more about this game except pray for no injuries, a victory and let's move on to the playoffs!!!

Join us this Monday night here in the gameday thread as we talk about the game and cheer our Steelers to a victory!!!! :tt02:

Looking forward to the game! Hopefully we will sweep the ravens like we did the browns and the bengals. When was the last time the Steelers swept all 3 teams in their divison?:scratch:

Here's my predictions for the game on sunday: Pittsburgh wins 34 - 17.
Batch throws 2 TD and 1 int. and throws for 270 yds.
Here we go STEELERS, Here we GO!!! Let's finish off this season with a BANG!! and put the Ravens in their place. (4th):cope::greenbounce2:

We've got to get something going now. Where's the Defense?

I agree koopa, this is the most uninspired play I've seen in a long time from this team...they act like they'd rather be anywhere than on the field today..what a bunch of **** !

im headed out to the bar to finish watching the game but they better step this **** up !

Tomlin just does not have this team ever ready to play on the road it seems like no matter who they play. He really really lacks something there in that department its just happening way too much so far this season and its inexcusable. SD and Oak are tied right now so Tomlin had better wake the **** up and try and win this game.

This game is over at this point how the **** are we gonna score 17 points with Charlie Batch in this game. This is a complete and utter disaster here so far. The Steelers can get this 3 seed still SD and Oakland are in a tough game and Tomlin completely failed today in getting this team ready to play its a joke.

BlitzburghRockCity
12-30-2007, 06:01 PM
We can kiss this #3 seed goodbye now...it looks like somebody forgot to tell to the players we had a game today. If Batch doesn't lead this team on a scoring drive right now and stop the bleeding, it's over.

BlitzburghRockCity
12-30-2007, 06:02 PM
We don't deserve the 3 seed, this team doesn't deserve anything but an *** beating from somebody who actually wants to play today.

LOL @ this team! 4th string RB running roughshod on our 1st team. LOL! We can start planning for the draft.

Tunch just mentioned that the defense came off the field yelling at each other and started pointing fingers at each other. So much for team comaraderie.

12-30-2007, 06:39 PM
Just checked in...WTF. Are they even playing!! They had better get something going and act like a playoff team. The Jags are going to have us for dinner in the first round. Come on STEELERS, play like your in the playoffs!!:banging:

This Steelers D today looks awful they cant stop 3rd downs,they cant stop the run, their getting pushed around big time on both sides of the ball. If they dont correct this for next week its gonna be good bye season.

Koopa
12-30-2007, 07:24 PM
there's nothing really to fix other then their heart, if they actually came to play we'd be winning, but you can tell know one gives a **** becasue it was obvious that they couldn't get the number 3 seed becasue the chargers are playing the raiders

but the season is over, with soft as **** davenport as our starter we ain't gonna do **** against the jags

Koopa
12-30-2007, 07:28 PM

Sit the starters? They are, I say sit them next week. I'd rather lose next week with our backups than our starters.

Just got in fellas .... all I can say is , "Pure slop" .... Regardless of this late comeback attempt, this is not a good football team. They're very average at best. My guess is that we're not going deep into the playoffs. Big off-season changes need to happen for us to effectively compete with the leagues elite again.

Tomlin deserves a good deal of my criticism of this team. They are not focused nor are they prepared. They haven't been for over a month now.

I have watched the last 3 or 4 pats games and I've noticed that Belichick is constantly talking to his defense after each series. Why do I feel that Tomlin is just taking up space on the sideline? He looks totally disinterested at times and his team is absolutely reflecting that attitude, and not just today, but for at leats the last 5-6 games!

I'm beginning to like Tomlin less and less. This team is getting worse as the year goes on. What the hell do they do all week in practice???

there's batch for you, can't come through in the clutch, i don't get why these faggot qbs we have don't just run, why the **** do you always want to pick it up in one ****ing play, get the first down and spike it or run out of bounds.........faggot *** hoe

Look how we lost to the Ravens! Tomlin is a joke. Big Ben is a sissy. We wont go far in the palyoffs. Our season, franchise, and past history is a joke. We aren't the great franchise that all these bafoons on this website fantisize about!

I really started liking Tomlin less and less after the Broncos game....Then the Jets loss really put me over the edge with Mike.....I'm willing to cut him slack since he is a rookie HC.....But I agree with many of your points....

I agree with everything you said regarding Tomlin right now he definitely lacks something especially when this team goes on the road. They have continually not gotten better with each and every road performance. I dont know whether its lack of focus or whatever but the bottom line is its happening way too much and Tomlin needs to start taking more heat then he was early on in the season for it.
