The Steelers and Ravens aren't evenly matched because the Pittsburgh Steelers have that extra gear and desire to win that the Baltimore Ravens don't have. You can't measure that,. no stat sheet or Standings show this but when the games are played, this becomes obvious.

    The Baltimore Ravens have now lost the Pittsburgh Steelers 3 times in the playoffs the past 10 years. they are 0-3. The Steelers in the playoffs are exactly what the Houston Oilers of the late 1970's saw. A team that many felt were a good team but when it came to the Playoffs they couldn't beat the Steelers. The New England Patriots ironically are this to the Pittsburgh Steelers. That team that they just can't get over the hump of beating.

    In this game Saturday night, The Baltimore Ravens choked away a 21-7 first half lead. They were in the drivers seat. Take this a step further. The Steelers came out in the 2nd half and did nothing with the ball Offensively. The Ravens could've seized that moment and added 3 or 7 to the score. 24-7 or 28-7 is very tough to come back from. Instead, the Ravens imploded in the same fashion the Steelers did in the first half. They continuously shot themselves in the foot with mental mistakes and their opposition capitalized on every mistake.

    The difference is that the Baltimore Ravens did it with the game on the line and the Steelers did it with an entire half of football remaining.

    Champions don't choke away 14 point half time leads. They hold onto them, they add to them.

    Champions take a situation where they face the ultimate adversity and they overcome it. They overcome all odds.

    In this game, the Pittsburgh Steelers played like the Champions they have proven they are since 2005 and the Baltimore Ravens proved why they are never going to be anything more than a team often compared to the Pittsburgh Steelers. A cheap imitation of the real thing.

    The Green Bay Packers just did what the Ravens failed to do. They came out in the 2nd half and added to a 28-14 lead to make it 35-14. the just took a Ray Lewis sized knife and pushed it through the heart of the Falcons in Atlanta

    I thought that coming back from 14 down was highly unlikely in this rivalry, but the Steelers did it looking like Champions. Play the Cheats like they played the ratbirds in the 2nd half, the Steelers are going to the Super Bowl.

    Champions don't whine like little *****es, for a penalty call, on every play! The Ravens embarrassed themselves in that regard!

    I hear the Balty fans are crying the refs gave us this win.

    Yeah, the dropped passes, botched snap only 126 total yards. Darn those cheating referees.

    And I was saying just before the kickoff for the second half "We're gonna find out if we have a championship team here".

    I guess we found out what we have. OTOH, it's only 1 win out of 3 needed. We still have 120 minutes of football left to play, assuming we don't have to play OT.
