    I want Pitt to go to New England because even if they can't beat Brady, we know they'll bruise him and the rest of his team.

    I remember reading a couple years ago that teams who played Pitt and Baltimore had terrible records in their games the next week because of the hurting we put on them.

    Hope that's true.

    I'm only rooting for Pittsburgh if Houston has already won. If Cincy wins, they're going to NE, so we might as well beat up on Denver rather than have a knock down drag out with Pittsburgh. Then we'll be in good shape to either go to NE or play Cincy at home in the unlikely event they win.

    3. Denver has a good Defense and will tee off on Ben like they did to Sanchez (is the Jets Oline any better/worst?). So even if the the Steelers pull off the win, Ben will probably be further hurt or theyll lose some other crucial players on Defense or Offense.
    The Patriots defense is bad. Even a hobbled Ben should be able to hang 24 on them, Redman will be able to trample them, and I don't see that the Patriots have the players to change their attack against the Steelers' defense. They're pretty much stuck running the short stuff that LeBeau stuffed earlier this year. Defensively, the Steelers aren't hurting that badly for this time of year.

    I think Denver has a better shot of winning a home game against the Steelers than the Patriots do.

    Agreed. It all depends on what Houston does. If the Texans win, then I'm all for the Steelers winning on Sunday.

    Re: Why I'm rooting for the Steelers

    I want the Ravens to beat the Steelers three times in one season just to shut up the Steelers fans that gloated about the Steelers doing the same thing to the Ravens a couple of seasons ago.


    ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?!

    And you think that'll stop them from whining? I can just hear them running down all their injuries (real, imaginary, & played for the press) with a mouth full of Primanti fries & Linda Ronstadt singing "Poor, Poor, Pitiful Me" in the background...

    Oh, the Steelers fans I know will whine. I'll throw their comments about the '08 game (where Gaither, Mason, and Suggs all played with one arm) back in their teeth! LOL!

    I soooo want a three game sweep...

    Re: Why I'm rooting for the Steelers

    Honestly, I don't worry about Pittsburgh coming here. I would like them to win if Houston wins though, so that they would beat up on the Pats a little, even though I think the Pats will lay waste to them.

    Pittsburgh's offense is nearly as anemic as the Bronco's is right now. I hold little hope of the Ravens actually hosting the AFCC.

    That's where I am.

    Of the 3 possible 1/15 opponents, I'd project spreads something like:

    Pit: Ravens -4 (This may even be a little light, I could see -5)
    Hou: Ravens -6.5
    Den: Ravens -11.5

    Of the 4 possible 1/22 games, without further injury knowledge, I'd estimate:

    Pit: Ravens -3 (it would be less for this game with the Ravens not coming off a bye week)
    Cin: Ravens -7.5
    Den: Ravens -10
    NE: Ravens +3

    Re: Why I'm rooting for the Steelers

    The Steelers are the only team outside of the Ravens that can go into NE and beat the Patriots. I will watch the Denver/Pitt game and root against the Steelers out of reflex but will be happy when the Steelers shut the Broncos out and beat them easily.

    Hopefully then we get the Texans and the Steelers go to NE. How can a Ravens fan not want to see the Steelers come into M&T for the AFCCG? Seriously could there be a bigger game? Its our chance to win three from the Steelers and exact our revenge. The Steelers are beat up and would come limping into M&T. Hopefully the Ravens have an easier time with Houston in Baltimore and with the bye week, we could be about as healthy as a team could ever be a this point in the season. I tiink it is going to happen.

    Re: Why I'm rooting for the Steelers

    I still have a spontaneous twitch every time the idea of playing the Steelers comes up. I would prefer to have the Championship Game in Baltimore, even if it means that they face the Steelers again. The Ravens do well at home and this team was built to beat Pittsburgh. To face them in Baltimore is a better feel to make the Super Bowl, even with the trepidation that comes with a third game against the Dark Side.

    Although I would want the Ravens to pound the smile off of Brady's face in Foxboro in the Championship Game, I would be concerned about the TE's facing the LB's and the quick strike potential of the Patriots. I am not sure that I would feel any more confident of them going to New England, so if I have to have anxiety, I'd rather it be in Baltimore.

    Besides, I have never been to an AFC Championship Game. That is the main reason I want it to be in Baltimore, regardless of who they play. I still remember the feelings of the Denver Game in the 2000 playoffs. I want that experience again (twice).

    If the Texans beat the Bengals then I will root for the Steelers also, but I can't say I'll be happy to see the Steelers win "easily".

    I would much prefer to see the Broncos make the Steelers look like a bunch of chumps and beat them up badly, but then lose by a whisker on a bonehead Tebow fumble or something. If we draw the Texans then I agree I want New England to get Pittsburgh, but I want the Steelers to look as bad as humanly possible going through that scenario. Except that they also beat New England the next week - barely, still looking like lucky chumps, receiving even more injuries - giving us the AFCCG in Baltimore.

    Pittsburgh is already so beaten up, I don't think they have enough personal for more than two playoff games.

    If they make it Baltimore, it'll be like playing the walking wounded.

    If the Ravens played the University of Maryland in order to reach the Super Bowl, I would be fine with that. I'm not interested in revenge or paybacks or beatdowns. I'm interested in seeing the Ravens in the Super Bowl.

    This.
    I'll be rooting for Texans and Denver, because they are the two teams least likely to be able to beat the Ravens. Then I'll be rooting for a NE loss.
