Do you hate the steelers, and that's why you like that team?

They're like a carbon copy of the flyers for the NFL. They celebrate regular season wins like superbowls, they're the toughest guys on the field after the whistle, harbaugh is huge cry baby....ugh, I can't stand that team.

The only reason anyone likes the Ravens(including people from Baltimore) is that they hate the Steelers.

so what's everyone's thoughts on the FG practice? Not only in the Ravens game but also in Atlanta. Carroll clearly called a timeout and 4-5 seconds later they snapped the ball.

I just really don't want Ray Lewis to get the Jerome Bettis treatment here. Atleast Bettis was likable, jolly fat guy...basically a black santa clause. Lewis has the crazy eyes, his interviews are all serious and preachy....it'll be awful for him to get immortalized.

Lewis is a much better player than Bettis ever was though.

He's a dbag, but yeah.

delay of game if they snap the ball and kick that far after the whistle. Though I still love that you lost a playoff game because you "iced" the kicker.

My fantasy team benefits from having Tom Brady in as long as possible.

I don't really have a problem with Lewis(the football player). He's a great leader and the team is rallying around him. It would be awful for the Ravens to go anywhere further though. I hope the Patriots get a big lead and then use their patented method of playing with a big lead...making it bigger.

kenny the kangaroo was quite impressed with the surgical way tom brady more or less dismantled the texans defense. there were times when the patriots were doing pretty much whatever they wanted for long stretches. brady may be a tool and belicheck may be a jagoff but they have earned this gentleman's respect.

All 4 teams I wanted to win this weekend lost, so here is who I am rooting for in exact order...

1. Atlanta - No problem with their team. Would like to see Tony G get a ring. Had no idea until this morning that the Falcons win yesterday was the first time Tony G ever won a playoff game.

2. New England - I know as a Steeler fan I should hate them, and I dont care for them, but it really wont bother me that much if Brady ties Bradshaw.

3. San Fran - Will hate to see them tie the Steelers with 6 rings and see a Harbaugh win a Super Bowl

4. Baltimore - Like Troy said, don't want to see Ray Lewis get the Bettis treatment, and I will puke up all of the delicious Super Bowl Sunday food if I have to watch Flacco hold up the Lombardi trophy.

Go Falcons!

I feel more and more it's going to be a Harbaugh bowl.

I don't see how the Ravens can possibly beat the Pats.

The same could've been said about them beating the broncos, too though.

That was far from unanimous. Every conversation about that matchup had the "the broncos haven't beat anyone in this streak" qualifier. I'd bet on the pats -7 in that game easy.
