Easily the most pussy team in the league. I want them in week one and I want to see someone like Timmons snap Flacco's back.

Hopefully we get the game instead of the Pats, nothing better than seeing Clark knock some faggot from stab city out of the game.

The road to the AFC North crown goes through Pittsburgh, but the Ravens would prefer to take their chances against the defending Super Bowl champs during daylight hours, at least when they travel to Heinz Field. According to the Baltimore Sun's Jamison Hensley, the Ravens have "asked not to be considered for a prime-time game at Heinz Field this season when they submitted their scheduling requests to the league..."

its hilarious, they dont want to come during primetime because of that beat down that was 35-0 at half in the throw back jerseys a few years ago...harrison had the game of his lifetime, and reed escaped death twice at the hands of ward on a block and harrison on a ST tackle. Good times lol

Not all but we saw the difference a somewhat non existent regular season Boldin made in their playoff run. What did Mike do?? He's our number 1 WR but was demoted and couldn't catch a pass or go up and defend one when needed. IMO Boldin and Rice were their keys to winning and Wallace and our lack of running game were keys to us losing.

boldin hasnt really had a good year in balitmore yet, he was heroic this year in the playoffs but hes also cost them a playoff game before...some guys just get in the zone, boldin did that this year...but honestly his best years were definitely with the cards.

I hold a grudge for Wallace going back to how he handled his hold out. I believe had he showed up and was part of the team he could of been a difference maker for us this season. To me he appeared to of given less than 100% in more than one game for us. Boldin exploded on their run and made Flacco look damn good in the process! But honestly I don't think Wallace fits in here, so him parting ways is the best for both parties...

i dont disagree that parting with wallace is for the best, as long as they have a plan to replace him.

but the steelers didnt handle the hold out well either, now theres hurt feelings on both sides and here we are

So if two different things were handled poorly who is responsible for handling them? Tomlin? Front office? And will they change it for the future or will the team continue to be a good pitch for an mtv reality show?

Mendenhall was handled poorly by tomlin, im pretty sure those two havent seen eye to eye in a few years though. THe fumbles in the browns game should not have led to him being inactive and ultimately suspended....that really was too much of a hard *** stance on it which crippled the team at RB at the wrong tim. I think he needs a change of scenery, i wouldnt be surprised if hes a 1000 yard rusher with AZ next year....everyone who hates mendenhall thinks hes way more useless than what is true, hes a talented back and a complete back.

The FO handled mike wallace poorly...but i see that they didnt want to be bullied, but i do get why wallace would want an extension, he did out play his rookie deal and has put up some pretty good numbers for the team and deserved to be extended and get that security, idk how anyone can dispute that even if you hate hold outs and hate his attitude, he had every right to be pissed they wouldnt talk a long term deal with him. Brown got the extension, and ive always been a big brown fan but that deal was a little premature and i think was meant to say **** you to wallace just a little too much, but hopefully it works out

i just hope they have a plan....and i hope that plans name is bowe or keenan allen

02-08-2013, 04:41 PM
I'm going to say the front office handled the Wallace situation just fine.

They handle all contracts the same way, once the season starts all talks stop. Besides it was Wallace who turned down $10 mil a year contract

It is highly unlikely the Ravens are going to get a beatdown from the Steelers next season. The major issue the Ravens face is who they lose because of salary cap issues. That is the only way the Ravens are going to be hurt. With players like Flacco, Ngata, Reed (very likely staying), Boldin (wants to remain a Raven), Jones (wants to remain a Raven), Suggs, Torrey Smith, Webb and others, the Ravens are still going to be an extremely difficult team to beat. This team is only going to get better with Flacco gaining confidence and Caldwells plays. Ray Lewis is a loss from a motivational perspective, however, his age was a detriment to the position this year. They gain money from his retirement.

Great another fn troll! You fn idiots play the steelers twice, that means us and 14 others teams will be giving you their best shot! You guys won the SB but your team isn't that badass bro! I'm betting Flacco gets his huge payday then shits the bed!!

Hmmm, thought I gave you a respectful reply, I did not deserve your reply. Let's see - a team wins the SB and in your book that isn't badass. Willing to bet 31 other teams don't see it that way. Flacco will get a huge payday as he earned it. However, I think he's going to rip through teams now like a man on fire.

You should believe that though. I mean, he won you a Superbowl and whatnot. But objectively he still has a lot to prove to be worth as big a pay day as he is asking. Basically he is asking to be paid a great deal more than Big Ben, and he is just not a better QB. I know this will come out as being extremely subjective (being on a Steelers forum and all that jazz), but Big Ben is a better QB. Flacco is benefiting from having a really good season following a bunch of very mediocre in which he was carried by a beastly defense. AHA! BUT SO DID BIG BEN! Spare me. This defense has not been beastly since 09, and even that was not that great. My point is, Flacco is going to be paid far more than what I believe he is worth at this point. Sure, he is a proven winner and I'll take that any day over great promise, but he has also proven that he can be very average throughout most of the season. In my book, you don't pay 20mil'ish per year to a guy who may or may not take it to the next level. You pay Aaron Rodgers that kind of money. You pay Payton Maning that kind of money. You pay Tom Brady that kind of money. You don't pay Flacco that kind of money.

Based on what, his record after his last SB win? He had a great season. But face reality, even with a great season, the odds are against him and the Ravens next season. I do believe the Steelers may have been one of the few teams to win back-to-back SB's. You seem to pretty levelheaded, but don't think the Ravens can beat the Steelers next year just because they won the SB the year before. The Ravens have done nothing that has not been done 46 times before.

As I said in a previous thread, Flacco earned his fame this time. But let's face it, much of that has been luck to get him to that point. Flacco is the most absolutely Jekyll and Hide QB in the league. What if the Niner's had scored on their last drive? Would we be having the conversation? Remember who won 2 SB's in the last 6 years? Guess what, they did not make the playoffs this year. Remember who beat them? Guess what? Remember the Giants? Guess what?

I still maintain a healthy Steeler team would have put the Ravens out of the playoffs this year. Flacco will need all the help he can get to get back to where he left in 2012/13. I have no delusions about the Steelers beating the Ravens. I think those games can go either way. A SB win changes nothing. This is not the Browns we are talking about. This is the Steelers.

I think both teams will be quite different next year. And I hope Flacco gets a huge payday. He earned it. I think there will be some troubles though as his inconstancy will prove to be his weak negotiating point.

Ahh, here is hoping to a good season for both teams.

I can also refute all the what - if's you provide - such as what if the niners scored on their last drive. Well, what if Lee Evans had held fast to the ball in the 2011 AFC championship and Flacco was there two years in a row. Point is, it really isn't all Flacco. The Ravens are one of the more complete teams in the NFL. Luck can certainly carry teams. Luck cannot carry a team all the way to the Superbowl championship. You can't beat team after team by pure luck. You have to have the inherent talent. The 49ers have a monster team on paper. Almost every pundit out there said the Ravens were going to lose in the matchup. Yet by third quarter the game was 28-6. Luck does not get you to 28 points against the Niners in the Superbowl...no way. Inconsistency was an issue during the regular season, disappeared during the playoffs. Obviously all Ravens fans are hoping this is the new improved Joe and the coaches are playing him to his strengths...one of which is certainly the deep ball to WRs who can catch. Ravens got no choice though - how do you let a Flacco go - who do you replace him with? You pretty much are locked in. Too many other teams would give their eye teeth to get him.

I also hope it is a good season for both teams. Rivalries require both sides to stay competitive.

Any QB who had his playoff record and wins the SB is going to have a huge payday, not just Flacco. That he hit free agency and the SB is the perfect storm. He truly made the most of it. Ravens have got no choice. Most Ravens forums want him paid big bucks, just not to the tune that it destroys the cap for the rest of the team and the good people leave. However, just one more point - yea you do pay Brady, Manning, Rodgers big money - and they did not win the Superbowl - or even get to the dance - with all the money paid to them. You have to pay the winners.

I enjoy talking football with the competition, that's why I'm here. However, given the "warm" welcome your forum has for anyone with a shred of intelligence discussing a team outside of the Steelers - I don't think I'll be here for long.

Yea, I was an O's fan for many many years prior to the Ravens. I grew up in a different day and age and saw the great ones play - Frank and Brooks, Palmer, McNally, Boog.

I agree he should be paid. I did not mean to argue that. He will get huge money. I just think luck went his way more than not. But, I am an advocate of the concept of making your own luck. And I don't think anyone can argue that the Ravens lay very well as a team. Someone always seemed to step up this year at the perfect time. And I think Flacco would do well on one of the West Coast offenses. Any word on contract talks? Do you think it will come down to a franchise tag?

I don't care how the previous season ended, or even the last game, Steelers-Ravens games can go either way.

I think it will end up coming down to an exclusive franchise tag. These negotiations and strategies sound quite complex because how you pay him has such a great impact on the rest of the team.

When is Ben's contract up? I assume Steelers will never release him until age or non-recoverable injury makes itself known.

Sorry, I meant to say they can't argue "they don't play well as a team." The Ravens did that in spades. And then some.

Anyway, not sure. I think Ben signed a 10 year deal. Which is crazy as a first major contract coming out of a defacto rookie contract. It will be interesting to see how the torch is passed. It might be sudden like, after an injury, or it might be all the little injuries catching up and him realizing it is his last year, or it could be he feels he has more gas in the tank and the Steelers don't think so. That will be interesting indeed.

Purpledeath, you seem like a levelheaded guy. You make some good points and counterpoints without being a fanboy. Which is all to common with too many fans. I live about 20 miles north of Baltimore - don't take this personally, but I am sick of purple! :)

Long story short, Dad used to be a bmore colts fan, when they left he was so pissed he just rooted for the Steelers, But he was a Bullets/O'S/Colts fan, so I just liked the teams he rooted for when I was a kid, thats how that happened. Never got to see the greats play besides Raffy/murray/cal/brady/Moose and the gang since I was born in 88, they are on a good track now, all the need to do is sign Weiters long term. Scared to say he is a Boras client though.

and in regards to steelchamp204 rooting for the O's and not Pirates, it's because he's a fair weather fan like most Pittsburgh fans are but in denial.

I'm not from Pittsburgh, far from it but I support all their 3 teams. And I currently support the Wizards but if Pittsburgh ever got an nba team, the switch would be unconditional.

But welcome to the forum, in this forum there are two types of steeler fans.

realists like me who know when to put the kool aid down and talk sense and the guys that never take their glasses off.
