    I think it will be a pretty close game, could go either way .Both teams are hurting steelers more on Offense Ravens on defense. GO Ravens !!!

    #1 on both counts. Have lived through the good and the bad years. They are the A-typical Blue Collar Smash Face type team. Love the Steeler/Raven rivalry.

    I was indoctrinated early - my dad and his buddies gained some local fame as the "Gerela's Gorrilas" and got flown down to super bowl IX.

    Ugly game but typical for these teams.

    I'll take the win.

    yeah i saw leftwich hurting literally from the time he fell in the end zone i give him cedit for staying out there and trying to battle through it , but tomlin should have pulled him. he obviously was not able to throw passes effectively. especially late in the game when he had a reciever open deep and simply couldnt throw the ball far enough to get to him. healthy he has plenty of arm to get that pass there. tomlin is a coach who is dedicated to his players but i think he should have pulled him

    Leftwich scored the only offensive touchdown
    Good game IMO. Special teams won/lost the game, not the QB.
    Punt out of bounds, different winner ;)

    Steelers fan, but I like both teams, tough hard nose football game.
    Both may make the play offs. Gotta go thru Houston , Denver & Patriots. Tough road but doable/

    More upset Oregon played such a flat game Saturday.

    Yup, the Ducks were finally caught flat-footed. Bound to happen sooner or later. At least there's finally been one Oregon game this season I didn't shut off after the first half. ;lol

    Don't worry about Leftwich anymore, he's got a couple bad ribs. out for browns game. Can you play QB? Bad situation.

    heck no, i havent thrown a football competitively since 1990 and that was flag ball in the service, im older than leftwich and didnt have the arm then that he does now. but i know enough about the position and the mechanics of throwing to know he wasnt able to throw normally from very early on in the game. the first pass he threw (the interference call) the arm looked strong, everything else was nose down which tells me his ribs were not allowing him to extend through the throw. if this is something i can see on tv as a "has been" high school backup qb, then the guys who get paid big bucks to be experts should have seen it a lot easier than i did. makes me wonder if batch was healthy, he may have been "dressed" simply as an emergency qb and wasnt gonna go in unless leftwich broke a leg or something. if batch is healthy he should have been in there before the half IMHO and definitely by mid 3rd quarter

    Exactly why the Ravens signed former QB Dixon to their practice squad, to keep him from playing for the Steelers.

    Cleveland smells an upset for sure. Homestead Charlie Batch and the RB's will get it done though.

    Unless somebody pulls a "rabbit out of a hat" fairly quickly, I fear our season is rapidly going up in black and gold smoke.
