    CBS just referred to Ravens/Steelers as 'The Rivalry' pretty cool.

    I don't at all understand Doss being inactive. He proved he could play in preseason. For pass ruahers it was either Kindle or Kruger, I get that.

    I had to double take at McKinney. I thought it was Brandon.

    It is Brandon. But Bryant plays LT so we're good.

    I can't really say they won't spread them out, Dickson can play some slot WR. and with Kindle out.. Theres still McPhee and Art Jones.. We've still got a pass rush coming.

    I am already in a worse mood because of Torrey over Doss. That is MESSED up. All kinds of. Torrey showed NOTHING in the preseason, while Doss was a revelation.

    Nothing like numb-skulled politics to start the season.

    Doss inactive? Golly, it seems every time they make some kind of bone headed deactivation. Doss was easily our 3rd best WR and I just hope Torrey Smith is ready to go because he didn't look too good. Kindle, I can understand because you want to ease him in, but we need all the pass rushers we can get. Also, we only have 5 DL with the McKinney deactivation and he always seems to do well against the Steelers.... oh well. We'll probably see a good amount of Torrey and La'Quan at WR, hopefully they make some plays.

    It's not politics, it's the kick returner option. Torrey will return kicks at some point today and we saw him doing way more of that in the preseason than Doss.

    I doubt we see a good amount of Torrey or LQ on offense. A lot of two wide, two tight sets.

    They've already said Williams will be returning kicks. So that makes it more curious.

    I REALLY wanted to see Sergio and Tandon against Pissburgh. Torrey has shown nothing to tell me that he's ready for this game, Tandon however, has. I guess they're goin with the time tested "speed kills" strategy; but unsure hands kill too...

    More curious? I think it's clear what the game plan is, it's just not what we expected (hoped) it would be leading up to this game.

    LaQuan showed more as a returner than Torrey in the preseason. Sorry, I am just not sold on or high on Torrey Smith right now. Not that he won't be good, and not that he doesn't deserve time to develop. But he is not ready.

    I'm gonna be a sourpuss and call it now. We lose this game in some insane, unbelievable fashion because Torrey Smith drops an easy one, or coughs up a fumble on a return, or something. (No, I'm not on the ledge; I suppose I'm just a cynic.)

    Mistake #1- Choosing Torrey Smith over Tandon Doss for the active roster. What good is Smith if he can't freaking catch?

    I am guessing this means Williams will be #3.

    I'm wondering how much Joe even trusts Torrey at this point. I'm sure he'll go to him when he's open, but I don't even trust Torrey to finish his route at this point. Maybe they'll just send him on 9 routes all afternoon. Who are we kidding the only reason he's active is for Cam's end around.

    LQ will return punts, Torrey will return kicks. They aren't the same skill. Some people are skilled at both, but it's definitely not the same thing. I wouldn't be surprised to see LQ lined up at the third receiver spot.
