    So just how good is Baltimore?

    They defeated Houston, the Jets, us and St. Louis. 3 of the 4 are under .500. It becomes more and more clear to me that opening week was their Super Bowl. To be fair, we were horrible in that game but Flacco's only other good game was against the Rams.

    I think the defense is playing pretty well for them but thats it.

    Not sure how much stock to put into the Ravens yet.

    I've noticed teams have been getting pressure on flacco. If our D is healthy and cuz we play them 2 times a year and are playing at our house we stand a good chance of beating them.

    I pledge allegiance to the flag of the united steeler nation.
    And to the franchise for which it stands. One nation of domination

    To beat them we have to stop Rice (easier said than done), and have our O-line give Ben enough time to make plays and not get hit and fumble. Don't forget the Steelers made 7 turnovers in the first game, that will get you blown out every time against good teams. It was still only 21-7 at the half too.

    The Ravens still have more division games against the Bengals and Browns as well. I could see them going 4-2 in the AFC North and getting the AFC Wildcard with the Ravens getting maybe a 2 seed. All speculation. The Steelers are going to come ready to play against the Ravens. Week 1 everyone was just glad there wasn't a lockout and was so rusty from the lack of an offseason. From Weeks 9 on we will see who the real teams are.

    People talk about Ben being inconsistent, but Flacco is just as much so. He's up and down and every week. They will indeed go as far as Rice can take them, Flacco won't lead them to a super bowl. As long as their defense plays lights out and they can run the ball they'll be a contender.

    I have no problem whatsoever in saying that the Steelers will welcome them to Heinz in a few weeks and get a win. Our team realizes you can't lose to a divisional opponent twice and expect to be in the playoffs with any decent seeding.

    All week one and really week two games are pretty much a scratch in my mind. Teams had basically no time to prepare and no time to come up with a solid gameplan to open the season, so every game was pretty much a tossup. That being said, the fact that the Steelers generally play up or down to their opponents does give me some sense of optimism for the upcoming games.

    Ben has been there done that, he has no excuses, Flacco does IMO!

    Ben can't be an every other week QB. he is the dagger to the rats..

    You all will see when they either don't make the playoffs or get knocked out of the playoffs.

    I have a hard seeing Bmore NOT making the playoffs. Pats will take East. NYJ and Buf will tank. South will go to who knows? West is SD's to lose so I cant see us or the Ravens not making the playoffs. Big question which I think we all know the answer to is just how good is Cincy?
