They do not have a guy behind Miller nearly as good as Dickson who caught 54 passes two seasons ago. T smith had more yards and TDs last year than Antonio Brown. It was Smith's second year versus year three for Brown. Sanders is only slightly more productive as a receiver than Jones.

    The big difference is the Ravens Oline and running game should be head and shoulders above the Steelers. The Ravens return a Pro-bowl guard, pro bowl potential guard and very solid tackles. Pitt has a pro bowl center and a bunch of question marks. Ravens return Rice and a very good looking RB in Pierce. Pitt is going to be relying on a rookie running back.

    Why is so much attention being paid to the Ravens losses but Pitt's are being glossed over?
    LOL! You know why. The media has a hard on for the Steelers every year.

    One reason is there are plenty of ex Steelers in the national media, where as, there are no former Ravens (yet) that are nationally televised every week.

    If you notice the theme with Joe this offseason from various website pictures that I've seen is that he's teaching more instead of learning at this stage. If it's getting Shiancoe up to speed or talking to Torrey about details to get them more on the same page, it's becoming his offense almost overnight.

    I say, enjoy the ride fellas, I think we have a special one at QB (and I don't just mean Superbowl special)

    #5 is definitely a much different cat this summer.

    Settle down. John Harbaugh and Joe Flacco's Baltimore Ravens can beat any team, anywhere.

    Early Doucet already cut after signing with Seahawks on Friday. Has lingering injury issues.

    Good thing we didn't waste our time on him.

    Always thought he'd be a solid slot receiver.

    also, Donald Jones announced on twitter he is retiring due to a kidney condition. So that's another FA option down

    Winning the SB is a HUGE confidence builder for a QB, especially early in his career......and sports is as much about confidence for as anything, isn't it?

    You sure those analysts weren't talking about the Orioles defense? If its the Ravens they're saying this about I'd love to read some of that
