    I'm expecting them to pressure Ben. The odds of him making mistakes are greater when he's got someone in his face.

    They'll bring the heat, especially the first half. We'll see how the game goes and adjustments will be made from there.

    The difference is the Ravens have gotten more int's by accident than we have gotten on purpose.

    The Ravens cornerbacks do well because their front 7 gets pressure, it's as simple as that. It's the same way the Steelers DB's play. When the pass rush is getting there, they are able to play their style of football.

    Now this year Steelers offense has more and experienced weapons than ever before, I don't care who you are in the NFL you can't cover Wallace, Brown, Sanders, and Heath all the time and not get beat. Ben will find people to throw the ball too but he's going to have to get rid of it quickly. The Ravens defense gets frustrated when they don't get pressure. If we can neutralize that part of their game or keep it in check at least, our offense can get down field.

    Agreed, but even 3 is poor in my book.

    id say 5 is pretty much standard since ben roethlisberger has been a steeler...high for most teams and i dont know the exact number but hes definitely one of the most sacked QBs over the course of his career.

    his ypa is historically high over the course of his career, so like i said it rarely effects the outcome of the game

    They will bring the heat but I look for BA to use the gameplan from lastweek as it seems that it our kind of offense the team can bring to the table. I think we will win. Remember, The Ravens have had 2 bad weeks in a row. Even though they won last week, that was more of a Cardinal collapse to close the game more than anything. Ben is not Kevin Kolb.

    This year they have 2 6'2" corners in Smith and Williams. They have Webb playing very well, and Carr in the slot.

    I'm not saying they are the Eagles but they aren't the Patriots by any means.

    Last year they had the same pass rush but their defensive backfield was ***. Even worse than ours.
