I would say based on how Pitt and Rothlisberger were able to bounce back after the game changing fumble and how they destroyed our D afterward, Pitt is the better team.

Baltimore eventually wore down our D due to our offenses inability to sustain any possession. Pitt was like an animal we pissed off and eventually just decided to show up and was able to dismantle our D at will while their D was able to not let up.

Bottom line is that I felt we could have won the Baltimore game, but it was clear we were out classed by Pittsburgh.

Pitt is more complete and has a QB that can carry the team if necessary. Flacco isnt there,... yet

The Steelers: Big Ben lit up our secondary and we always lose to the Ravens.

Both have successfully used the no-huddle attack to take down our defense in the 2nd quarter. Both squads out-coached our team, especially on offense.

you think this game was lost in the 2nd quarter because of Pitts version of the no huddle?

They'll probably both be there come playoff time.

They're playoff football teams... the kind we're trying to build.

I think Baltimore is the more complete team, but the Steelers just have an extra gear when they need it and a knack for huge, game-crushing plays.

Big Ben has a "Video Shield" around him in crunch time.

It's Bradyesque.

I am very much impressed with PIT..I believe they can win one more SB provided Troy is healthy.

Baltimore because I just didn't expect them to perform that well. Having said that Pittsburgh ain't no slouch either. Both teams walked in, pushed the Broncos down, took their milk money, ate their lunch and f'd their girlfriends before pissing on the rug on their way out the door. Just a god damned embarassment.

In both games our anemic offense left the D out there too long and by the end the tank was empty. McKid better figure out how to run the rock. Orton may be a good to great game manager he ain't jack **** as a game winner. He isn't the guy who is going to single handedly hoist a squad on his back and carry them to a win. Just not gonna be that guy.

Well, it’s not like we’re losing to teams like Detroit or Buffalo, like we have in recent years.

Baltimore has their defense ranked top ten pretty much year in and year out, and Pittsburgh has only won two of the last four Super Bowls…….

We obviously are not an elite team. Right now we’re probably better than middle of the road, but nowhere near the top. And that’s okay. It’s not like we’ve been an elite team this decade. We’re building to get there, and we will.

6-2 is above and beyond any expectations, and with some soft spots on the schedule, we should be able to get at least a wildcard at this point. And when you consider that the combined record of teams we played minus OAK & CLE is 33-15, it makes it that much more impressive. I can’t imagine anyone having a tougher sked than us this year. It’s just brutal, and we still have the Colts & Eagles on tap. Even the best teams in the league would have a hard time racking up wins with this schedule, so for us to lose games to teams like this is no shame.
