    If we win, we should sky-write a message over Pittsburgh

    I remember when a bunch of Chiefs fans got together and wrote a message in the sky to fire Pioli. I thought it was a good case of fans coming together.

    I would be very much in favor of sky-writing something over Pittsburgh should we win the Super Bowl. I think any good rivalry should be kept alive even in the offseason. I think if a few of us can pitch in, it should be doable.

    I'm not sure what the message should be quite yet. Nothing profane, obviously, but something to irritate them. Something like "CONGRATULATIONS BALTIMORE RAVENS - WORLD CHAMPIONS"

    Anybody into this idea?

    Pittsburgh will be the last thing on my mind if we win.

    Steelers will hear about it when the announcers talk about the reigning SB winners. They will hear it all season long. Film will be played and the MVP of the SB will get plenty of coverage. Hell, woodley will probably be interviewed on his thoughts, since he spoke about Flacco never going to a SB. I'm sure he will have something note worthy to say.

    It's douchey when they do it so why should we be douchey in return?

    They would return the favor next time they win and everyone here would go

    We know they're suffering. That's good enough for me.

    I think a better taunt would be reminding them how awwwwwwwwwful their salary cap is for 2013.

    I was looking last night and the Steelers have roughly $93 million (76%) of the projected $122 million cap tied up in 9 players....Roethlisberger ($20 million towards the cap alone), Timmons, Woodley, Harrison, Polamalu, Clark, Taylor, Keisel, and Colon. That leaves them $29 million to have to spread over the remaining 42 players under the rule of 51. That's about $690k per player and doesn't even factor in the salaries for their starting-to-get-pricey players still under their rookie contracts (Hood, Heyward, Pouncey, and DeCastro).

    In fact, the nine players listed above have 2013 cap #s that are roughly $32-35 million HIGHER than their cap #s in 2012, when they were very tight against the cap.

    If we are lamenting having to potentially swallow $1.53 million in dead money or pay $7.5 million on Anquan Boldin, imagine how bitter a pill having to pay Willie Colon $7.7 million with $6.35 million left in dead money would taste?

    All of the overpaid players above have so much dead money hanging over their current contracts that cutting them would be virtually impossible. Their best bet is to restructure like heck and hope that the cap goes up dramatically in 2014 (which the Ravens also have to be gambling on as well). The problem is that you have all these aging, declining players and you are pretty much pigeonholed into bringing them back because of these stupid contracts they've been given. Signing younger veterans to replace them isn't possible because of the amount of these awful contracts.

    Act like you've been there before.

    That's one of those karma things that come back to haunt you later.
    “When I think of a Baltimore Raven - we go in there, we take your lunch box, we take your sandwich, we take your juice box, we take your applesauce, and we take your spork and we break it. And we leave you with an empty lunch. That’s the Baltimore Raven way.” - Steve Smith Sr.

    Call me a Special Teams coach again. I dare you! I double dare you, MFer!
