I know it's likely the Steelers lose to the Pats, but next week the hated Ravens come to town and they're looking like garbage.

If the Jags and Cards can make Flacco look like a chump, LeBeau and co MUST have some tricks up their sleeve!

Time for some payback!

One dragon slayed, and another one coming right up. Next!

Is it just me or has the return of Max Starks been huge? The O-line was such a mess early in the year but it's just the opposite now.

Its not just you, Big Max has made a huge difference up front from his 1st game forward.

It was a great performance in all phases except K where Suisham missed another important makeable FG and kicked one out of bounds in the 1st quarter. I guess we got spoiled by Reed nearly always making the big kick from 45 in.

I doubt we'll see any let down in a revenge game against the Birdies.

BTW if you can play OLB please report to the Steelers facilities in the South Side by noon Tuesday ;)

I don't get how the Steelers can make Tom Brady look like a chump, but then struggle to make Flacco sweat (after the Jags and Cards did).

Oh well.

I hate Succo as much as anyone, but he executed beautifully on that 92 yard drive. He was quick and deliberate with the ball eliminating any chance to get the rush to him. Really, the whole game was 3rd down defense and we couldn't stop them at all. My wife and I were betting back and forth on who he'd find wide open on each 3rd down. That Pitta guy had at least four 3rd down conversions himself.

That and the non-FG attempt delay penalty which is on Tomlin.

Yes but still a very close and very entertaining game.

These are two very good teams. I think Baltimore is just a physically stronger team than the Steelers, but our quarterback is a bit better so they are pretty even.

We could have and maybe should have won that game. A healthy Woodley would have given us the edge and the victory, and we would be on top of the world.

Despite the loss, we are still in contention.

And wow did Harrison come back strong. That was really nice to see.

The defense on third down was the problem in this game. I think the Steelers forced one three and out. Like at Time of Possession.

The offense wasn't perfect, but played good enough against the best defense in the NFL to win.

That was the difference.

Totally inexcusable.

And again I ask... HOW did the Steelers not get the better of Flacco and the Ravens???

Holy hell...
