Posted on 01/03/2010 4:11:45 PM PST by Drea

You gotta admit, though....

It took a lot of heart for Ben to finish the game after getting his arm squooshed like that.

The game was OVER as soon as “Off the mark-us” Russel walked onto the field. God how I hate Al Davis.

And your showboat hotdog Ray Lewis is damned lucky he’s not doing serious jail time.

I think Jon Gruden said it best on MNF: “If the Baltimore Ravens were wearing their throwback uniforms tonight, they’d be the Cleveland Browns.”

I don’t like the Ravens or Ray Lewis, but I was hoping for them to win because Rothlisberger needed to be taken down a peg or 2.

I like the good guys... Peyton Manning, Dale Murphy, John Smoltz, Emmitt Smith, etc.

Couldn’t even stand Deion Sanders when he was a Falcon and a Brave.

Maybe they'll win a playoff game this year!

Oh wait, Romo will find a way to blow it. Go Giants! (in 2010!)

I find it amusing that the first round of the NFC playoffs consists of two games repeated from today: Philadelphia at Dallas & Green Bay at Arizona.

Obviously, you haven’t seen the headlines big Ben has been making lately.

I don’t believe the rape charge, but getting someone fired simply because he carded a woman at your table is uncalled for.

You need to do better than two so far unsupported accusations. You may not like him but he’s among the least of the NFL’s problems off the field. And rooting for the Ravens to advance at the expense of the Steelers is like rooting for an armed robber because you’re mad at a jaywalker.

How so? Class envy? Need for redistribution? Adjudged guilty on hearsay?

Best duck and cover of the day, I’m thinking. I mean don’t we all root for the team that doesn’t have a player accused of allegedly getting someone fired for just that reason? Seriously. It’s not at all because they constantly kick your team’s @$$ at all, now is it? I thought not.

The only thing I've ever heard Ben say that was political was when, after that lady ran into him when he was riding his motorcycle, he said he still opposed helmet laws and believes it should be up to the individual instead of the state. Your inane waste of space is therefore:

Oh? The Ravens didn't lose to the "over the hill Steelers" this year? Cognitive dissonance, anyone?

The iggles are going to have a real short work week coming up. Unless they stay in the DFW metroplex this week, they have a lot of traveling to do in a week. But that’s their problem. Guess they like doing things the hard way.

Great game by the Cowboys today. 24 to zip. Two straight shutouts. Feels great. NFC Division champs. Four more games to win. Hope they can do it.

There are a whole lot, a whole lot, of NFL players I'd put ahead of Ben as far as needing to be brought down a peg or two. In fact, he'd be way down at the bottom, if he made it at all.

The new lawsuit, filed Sept. 25 in Washoe County District Court in Reno and first reported by the Reno Gazette-Journal, does not name Roethlisberger as a defendant.

The Steelers lost to the pathetic Browns and Raiders and split with the Ravens. They are mediocrities and now you have 9 months to think about how far they have fallen. Poor you.

Yeah, but I think Ben can be saved if called on his behavior.

Most can’t and some will simply do themselves in (like Chris Henry of the Bengals).

They lost to the 8-8 Steelers, their one loss to a mediocre team. I stand corrected.

The Steelers self destructed. They lost games they should have won.
I dont like Big Ben, but he showed he had sand when he came back and threw the ball when it looked like it hurt like the dickens.
balitmore is the crimnal elemnet og the NFL{Hit tip to Chuck Noll who said that about the Raiders back in the 70s}. The Ravens think going to their parole officers should be consider a team exercise.

I had been a life-long Steeler fan. ...

UNTIL 2008. Dan Rooney gave tons of money to Obama and financed a big PA event for Obama also.

Immediately, I turned a Steeler-hater.

If the Patriots truly are hobbled by key injuries, the Ravens might actually have a chance. Good luck.

Typical uniformed Ravens fan. Do you know the difference between a wide receiver and a running back?

Classless as well as ignorant. Now you gloat over injured players, even though you are clueless about the position they play. Wes Welker is, in fact, a wide receiver.

Yeah I hear that same lame threat when my Red Sox are in Baltimordor trashing the Oreos..yet 34,000 out of the 40,000 fans are Red Sox fans.

Even though I live in the abysmal Communist State of Maryland I root for the Green Bay Packers (13 NFL Championships with 3 Super Bowl Championships) and the New England Patriots (3 Super Bowl Championships).

I am happy to say that nobody has ever played for either of those teams who has ever murdered anybody.
