    Kirwan and his co-host Tim Ryan were also laughing about how the Ravens were going to get stomped in the superbowl.

    He was also saying how big a mistake it was to fire Cam in the middle of the season.

    Not everyone with a microphone and a three-piece suit is an expert.

    If you're referring to the guy from Atlanta who was a Ravens fan and called in about his brother, you must not have listened to that entire segment.

    PK said the loss of Pitta was a big deal and everything you listed but he went on to say he'd never count out the Ravens because of Ozzie's ability to asses the situation mid-camp. He finished it up by saying he sees us in the playoffs.

    Hack would be a step up for Hoge. He might be the worst analyst on television.

    If Hoge predicts the Ravens will go 12-4, THEN I'll start to worry. He has all the nutritional value of a cardboard box.

    Hoge certainly knows nothing about the Ravens, based on comments he has made about the Ravens in the past. I'll wait and see, but the Ravens have a better chance at post season then the steekers. Anyone think br can play all 16 games? Not me. Flacco alone has not missed a game and is only getting better. Pitta down only means the Ravens will use someone else. Think back to the haters, this time last year, Suggs hurt meant the end of the winning according to most talking heads(yea, hoge too), How did that turn out!

    The Ravens have the best quarterback, running game, Head Coach and defense (by season's end) in the AFCN. Case closed. I can't wait.

    Pittsburgh has lost James Harrison, Casey Hampton AND Mike Wallace. Brown's going to get doubled. What else is there? People are saying that about Torrey, when you can say the same about Brown. Whose your NT? Hampton could at least give you two downs. When was the last time Ben played a full 16 games? We lose Pitta, they lose Miller.

    I'm sorry Pittsburgh, I'm not seeing it.

    If you truely want to improve the ratings of the prowbowl you should put Hoge and Skip Bayless in a steel cage at the 50 during the half time show and have them duke it out.

    Me neither. I would like to hear from an objective Steelers fan (an oxymoron, I know) and get their take. Not to mention we have the best return game in the division. Hell we could move the ball on them three years ago when they were at full strength, referees notwithstanding.

    Steeler forums are strange places. Half the posters are sure Ben will get them another ring this year; the other half think they haven't had a decent draft since 2007, and should blow it up and start over.

    Or maybe they're all bipolar, and it's the same people, just different days.

    Lol, although I would tend to agree with the latter group. They are closer to rebuilding than contending, IMHO.

    Then, they lost their rising corner opposite Ike Taylor.
