AFC CHAMPIONSHIP GAME

http://i90.photobucket.com/albums/k250/azsteeler/teams/bal.gif vs. http://i90.photobucket.com/albums/k250/azsteeler/teams/pit.gif

Sunday January 18, 2009
Heinz Field - 6:30 PM EST

Who would have thought the AFC Championship game would come down to division rivals, the number one and number two ranked overall defenses in the league. The Ravens are traveling to Pittsburgh for their third meeting this year, although this game isn't a rubber match! This game is for the Ravens to regain some of their dignity and avoid a 3-0 sweep to the hands of the Steelers. For the Steelers, this is for all the marbles and to add more 'hardware' to the trophy case.

This is one of those games where something is going to have to give because there are so many different story lines regarding "first times", "only happened once", and "it can't be done". A rookie QB has never lead his team to the Super Bowl, only one time has a #6 seed knocked off the 1,2,3 seeds, it's extremely difficult to beat a team 3 times in one season. Take your pick, I guess it comes down to the loser being who has more going against them than the other! When it comes down to it though, all these statements don't mean a thing because the Ravens Steelers are probably one of the top three rivals in the NFL. It's going to be a hard hitting low scoring affair to be decided on probably in the closing minutes of the game.

The current Ravens team is very reminiscent of the 2000 Super Bowl team that had a stingy defense with a mediocre offense that didn't make many mistakes. There aren't many players left from that Super Bowl team so you have to question their playoff experience at this point in the season. The AFCCG is really uncharted territory for the Ravens and considering they haven't had a week off since back in September fatigue has to be settling in on the players. The Ravens had an unfortunate event early in the season when a hurricane went through Texas and forced their game against the Texans to be postponed to November during the teams scheduled bye weeks. Offensively, the Ravens lack a passing attack and rely on the running game. With Flacco being a rookie he is asked to manage the game and not turn the ball over. Defensively, they line up nose-to-nose and dare you to try and move the ball on them.

Steeler fans have all seen and know what the Steelers offense is capable of. Just over a year ago they watched Ben on Monday night light up the Ravens for 5 TD passes... in the first half! They've watched Willie Parker rack up several 200+ yard rushing games in the past. They know this offense can be potent but have yet to see it this year. There have been glimpses of it the past couple of games and back in late November against the Patriots, but the fans just haven't seen the offense they know can light up a scoreboard. The Steelers offense is long over due! There are no worries about the defense, they were the top defense all year and shutdown practically everyone they played, so there are no questions concerning the defense. The big "X" factor this Sunday is the offense, can they move the ball against the Ravens, can the O-line play as well as they did against the Chargers, can the running game get going and pick apart the Ravens defense as the Titans were able to do.

This is it... this is for a trip to Tampa and Super Bowl XLIII! The keys for the Steelers to earn the right to go to Tampa are quite simple:

No Turnovers
Protect Ben
Pressure Flacco


Join us this Sunday evening in the gameday thread as we talk about the game and cheer the Steelers onto the Super Bowl!!!! :tt02:

I'm actually glad we're playing the ratbirds because the Steelers know who they're up against. its not like we're playing some AFC team we haven't played in a few years, the Steelers know to bring their A game and they tend to against Baltimore:cope:

The way this season has gone I cant see the AFC being decided any different then what we have this Sunday. The two best Defenses in the league getting ready for their third Knock out, drag out brawl. the Ravens are ready, we all know this. But I think the Steelers are more then ready to meet any challenge they bring. The other two games were close, but this one will not be. Ben will get the protection he needs, and the Def will put Falco down for good.

Ravens 12
Steelers 31

With all the talk of Parker and the run game I really would like to see us go play action first offensive play of the game and try to end this early. Just a thought!! I see the Steelers winning 24 to 14. We give up one drive for a touchdown and one stupid touchdown (big pass play, int for touchdown etc.)

The ravens look too banged up to win to me

I got a dilema, I have a slew of Steeler Jerseys and I don't know which to wear for the game. It's just a tradition I have. I tried to see if there was a connection to us winning with the jersey I was wearing, but I can't pick one up. I have a Ward, Parker, Polamalu, Roethlisberger, Miller, and a Harrison. Any Ideas???

:tt02: Could not agree more to your bullets for keys to the game. This team has faced the best of the league this season. The NFL's toughest schedule, and minus two on the road, two at Heinz Field has only beat it's self.:cursin: I'm am sooo optimistic about this run. To add a bullet for the Championship Game, last week the Special Teams came alive! Not just Santonio, but Burger has his best day as an 08 Steeler.

I'm not complaining but for the life I really don't understand why the Steelers can't figure that Willie just can't run on this defense....Maybe if they would pass the ball on first on second down it might open things up for the run game........3rd and long consistently is not smart especially against the Ravens defense....

The defense is playing lights out....If the offense could just score a TD it would be so huge.......I know Parker is trying his *** off but Moore could be a threat in the passing as well as a runner....I'm not saying give up on Parker but let Moore get some plays......

BlitzburghRockCity
01-18-2009, 08:37 PM
we need to get it moving on offense. we haven't allowed them to do anything on d but we need to start scoring TD's

Black@Gold Forever32
01-18-2009, 08:57 PM
This defense is playing some very good football......Timmons and Frazier both had pressure and Aaron Smith finished Flacco off.......When you have backups like that it really shows how good this defense really is......

Troyisabeast_43
01-18-2009, 08:57 PM
How about a 90 yard drive here to close out the half and go up 20 that would be an absolute dagger to the Ratbirds...

gotta run out the half

BlitzburghRockCity

This how the Ravens operate you give them gifts on offense like the Steelers did and you pay the price...

Man that's terrible. Guys need to just stay calm and walk away with this

Why would Davis be doing the returns??

Troyisabeast_43
01-18-2009, 09:20 PM
Why in god's name would we rush that play before the two minute warning. That was a key play there to keep the driving going. How dumb was that...Sloppy *** second quarter here by the Steelers...

That's all on Limas Sweed there guys we had to use that timeout because of him and he dropped a sure 6 and cost us another 3. And we give the Ratbirds more ****ing life going into the locker room...

Ben at the sametime has got to know the situation and just throw the ball away and take the sure 3 and go up by 9 and now it's still a 6 point game and a one score game...

Jambasteel
01-18-2009, 09:40 PM
we really are. We need to settle down. Keep the good D going. Then keep going downfield with the throw. They will tire out and all we need to do is start catching a couple. Come on steelers put them away:tt02:

Think about this for a minute.......Willie Parker dropped one pass that maybe could have led to six, Sweed's drop, and then when the Ravens sent a jail out blitz Ben tried to hit Holmes on a quick slant and he threw it behind Holmes.....If Ben hits Holmes in front then Holmes might have took it in for six.....Steelers are leaving points on the field and that is frustrating.....Really they could have close to 30 points and booking their flights to Tampa......

Kemoeatu's Penalty was a HUGE KILLER and there is ABSOLUTELY NO EXCUSE for not coming out with 3 points at the end of Half-time.:evilshake:

This is how Tennessee ended up blowing their game......stupid penalties and coming up empty on scoring drives.

Benny is playing well, he just needs to play better to make up for that jackass Sweed and his inability to catch a cold.... Sweed better redeem himself is several big ways during the 2nd half, then ride the pine for the rest of Hines Ward's career
