    Actually, I hope we do play you. We always get a couple of sacks. Would love it to be us that ends his season and bagels you 3-0 for the year...you the proponents of smash mouth football. Bring it on.

    The one bright side to Bens injury is, it's not a grade 3 sprain, which is the most serious. Whether he should play against SF depends on a lot of factors. How well he responds to treatment. How mobile he can be during practice, if and when he practices. Whether the Rat turds win or lose, it's still the NFL, anything can happen on any given Sunday. Ben has 8 more days to heal up, he's one of the most resilient players in the NFL and he has surprised a lot of people in his career already. I wouldn't count Ben out until game time, and I wouldn't count on him being immobile come game time. Be careful what you wish for Ratturd1, you'll get that and a whole lot more.

    Has the Ravens ever beat the Steelers in the play-offs?...nope Yea the Ravens with Flacco finally got over the Steelers regular season hump........Have to prove it in the play-offs next......The 2nd game could have gone either way this year.....The first game the Ravens kicked the Steelers asses no doubt....If they meet a third time in the play-offs I like the Steelers chances in a close game......

    I'm on the fence on this one; I want to see Ben play because without him our chances of winning are severely diminished. However if he plays and gets beat up how will he be the rest of the way out when there's 2 afc games left and then having to potentially play on opening weekend of the post season.

    Knowing Ben, he could make a monster recovery over the next week and be feel pretty decent. Either way Charlie will get a lot of snaps in practice.

    We need to go all out regardless. Ravens may very well lose to the Chargers so we need to win to move to the top seed in the AFC.

    If Ravens win, then we need to win to keep our wildcard spot. We need to go ALL OUT regardless.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    If Ravens beat the Chargers on SNF, you sit Ben and injured on MNF... right?

    Assuming they can even go. You have to sit Ben, Pouncey, and Woodley... right? Yeah, the last week the Ravens play the Bengals and the Bengals might need a win to get into the playoffs but do we really want to place our faith in them? Is it really worth rushing players out there in the hope the Bengals beat the Ravens?

    The scheduling has been great to the Steelers. They could rest some key players during the San Fran game and who knows maybe Batch can beat them.. Alex Smith is winning games so who knows. Then go out and beat the Rams and use that game to get ready for the playoffs and then rest players during the Browns game because they will be a lock for 5th regardless. They wouldn't even need the 1st week bye with the way things are going. Yeah, home field would be great but the Steelers historically play better as the underdogs on the road.

    And oh yeah, they should inform Godell of their plans so he can take the necessary precautions so the Steelers want to go out there and win that game
