The Steelers are in a must win situation now but they still need some help from other teams, so technically things are still looking good for the Steelers playoffs chances! Of course things could be better but since there is that glimmer of hope still we gotta keep cheering them on to victory! The Ravens are fighting for at least a first round bye right now and possibly home field advantage, which probably won't happen! This Sunday the Steelers have a chance to spoil the Ravens post season plans!

A few weeks back the Ravens embarrassed the Steelers by completely dominating them and blanking them out on the scoreboard. The Steelers seek redemption this weekend and will try to return the favor :cope: as the boast a 3 game winning streak and winning 5 of their last 6 to bring them to 500 since they were 1-1 at the start of the season. Willie Parker is a monster at home and he will look to pick apart the Ravens D which will be no easy task and Ben looks to continue his winning ways that he recently rediscovered here at the end of the season.

The Steelers Defense has given up a total of 13 points in their last three games of which 10 those came in the closing minutes of the game. This defense is returning to form as they try and fight their way into playoff contention!

Get the running game going early and often.
Protect the QB and not let the Ravens do what they did last time.
Play Steelers football!

21-7 Ravens now.....our defense and secondary is playing awful today.

Our offense is playing mad slow and can't convert.....this is frustrating and aggravating.

Bullshit ruling on the field and after review! Parker was down before the ball came out of his hands!!!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the STEELERS' defense known for moving around, confusing the QB, and coming with disguised blitzes?

And, with such a defense, isn't it true that opposing teams have, at times, had success against us using various different tactics to neutralize our defense?

So, doesn't it make sense that we would know EXACTLY what works against this kind of defense, what it's weaknesses are, and how to play against it?

If so, WHY THE ****ING HELL DON'T WE KNOW WHAT THE **** WE'RE DOING AGAINST THE GODDAMMED ****ING RAVENS!?!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?!?!!?!?!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?! ?!?!??!

a couple of nice grabs by holmes here. about time roethlisberger and holmes got on the same page.

i hate to say it, but the ravens look to be a pretty good team this year. kudos to them.

We're too soft to beat the Ravens this year. We were lucky we weren't shutout again. Another pathetic game on both sides of the ball.

Friday133
12-24-2006, 04:01 PM
the steelers just were not a good team this year. at least they are officially out of the playoffs so people will stop with the stupid playoff talk.

SUCH A ****ING WASTE OF 3 TURNOVERS!!! Our defense played well, considering it got NO help from the offense whatsoever. We lost the field position battle all game, and the defense gave up a couple touchdowns, but still, when they had to step up, Townsend had a pick and a forced fumble and McFadden had another pick. But what do we do? 3 and out, or a fumble, or an interception, or a few sacks. The Ravens tried to let us back into the game, and our defense tried to get us back into the game, but our offense simply refused to do ANYTHING. And it wasn't even Willie Colon's fault! Our offensive line just got beat, Ben looked ****ing SCARED, Parker couldn't do anything, and Nate Washington was doing his best Will Blackwell impersonation.

Steelersfan
12-24-2006, 04:08 PM
Nate Washington played?.....lol

Does anyone else think Troy came back too early? He looked a little slow out there to me. Yes he got beat twice for TD's but that isn't the only reason I am asking. Other plays he just looked slower than normal.

Hburg
12-24-2006, 04:08 PM
No! No kudos ever to the f*cking Ravens!! They are a b*tch team with a bunch of f*cking *******s! F*ck the Ravens! They are undeserved!

Yeah, he did look slow. He hasn't been 100% at a single point this season. As for him getting beat, why the hell was he left in single coverage on WRs? I know on the first one, he was expecting help from Anthony Smith, but the CB (Townsend? McFadden? Ike? IDK) got beat, and Smith had to go help him, leaving Polamalu all by himself on the ratbirds' #2 WR. :banging:

Join the wagon, Dan. I am so ticked off I think the Browns Fans are going to have a field day with us knowingly we are out of the race. You know we got the upper hand on them asses, WE SWEPT THEM!!!

SteelerFan87
12-24-2006, 07:52 PM
Well, look on the bright side. Making the playoffs would have taken a near miracle anyway, and this way could end up being better in the long run. I think we needed this kind of season from hell to light a fire under the players' asses again, give them that chip on their shoulder they thrive with, and set up a year of *** kicking next year. If I'm not mistaken, Adalius Thomas is a free agent, we should pick him up.

Also, cheer up, the Bungles bungled another game today, losing to the Broncos, after coming back with what should have been the tying touchdown, they screwed up the snap on the extra point, then totally ****ed up the onside kick, and lost by 1 point! At least we can take solace in hopefully kicking their asses next week, eliminating them from the playoffs, and shutting up bungles fans by ending up with the same record as them.

I personally hope to put the damper on their New Year and kick the living daylights out of the Who Deys. Great post, 87.

I don't even think the Ravens played that good, we just played that bad!! Ben's passes were WAY off, our Defense was so soft!! :wtf: Did they realize we were fighting for a playoff spot????? I was watching NFL primetime before the game and they said by the way Pittsburgh was playing they had us taking the Ravens....:cursin: I"m just so upset!! Not exactly by the loss but by the way WE lost!!!! We looked like the team from the first few weeks of the season....I"m so exhausted from this season I'm kind of glad it's over....Now i'll hope the Saints win it!!! :popcorn:

Next year boys....next year!!! :crossfingers:

The coaching staff should all be shot for another terrible game plan against the same team that tore us a new one a few weeks back. Did they not learn anything? Looked like the same game!! Why in the hell were we trying to throw the deep ball? We had no time! The bungles beat them by throwing short 6-7-10 yrd. passes. It worked!

How in the heck did the Browns put up 17pts against the rats and the best we could do in 2 games was 7??

Can you tell I'm still really pi$$ed??
