Hines Ward on Ravens: “We keep putting them out of the tournament”

Ben Roethlisberger

Ben Roethlisberger was asked after Saturday’s win to explain how he’s been able to beat the Ravens seven straight times.

“Luck,” Roethlisberger said with a smile.

Being able to deliver vertical plays in the fourth quarter would be high on our list.   The key play of the game was Roethlisberger’s 58-yard bomb to rookie Antonio Brown on third-and-19.  Big Ben says the play call was his idea.

“I told [offensive coordinator] Bruce Arians, ‘Let’s send him.’ All the receivers were supposed to do 15-yard stop routes. I said, ‘Let’s just chuck it deep. If they pick it, it’s a pick way down there, and it’s just as good as a punt.”

Roethlisberger said he wanted to throw away from Ed Reed’s side of the field, and just tried to throw the ball as far as he could.

“I saw the young fella just take off, so I’m just going to throw it up for you,” Roethlisberger said.

The loss has to feel sickeningly familiar to the Ravens.  Once again, the Steelers came up with the biggest fourth quarter plays.

“What better way to put the Ravens out of the tournament,” Hines Ward said. “They keep asking for us and we keep putting them out of the tournament. They’re going to be ticked about this for a long time.”

    Most players develop more class as they age. Hines Ward seems to lose class with each passing year. How about you put your head down, realize you’ve got the Patriots next week and start preparing. Your arrogant post-game analysis is great media material, but you forget that a non-call on Mike Wallace for offensive pass interference a couple of breaks helped you get over the divisional round hump. I’m not saying the officials decided the game, I’m just saying that if I were as fortunate as the Steelers and Hines Ward I’d keep my head down, shut up and do my talking in February, I wouldn’t be interested in gloating in the face of a team that I SHOULD respect.

    No…that so called elite QB keeps putting them out of the tournament

  3. mborz says: Jan 15, 2011 11:10 PM

    I knew Arians could’ve never been behind that call.

  4. Kaz says: Jan 15, 2011 11:12 PM

    The Steelers and Bengals have the Ravens number.

    It’s always better to talk trash after the game. . . . ha ha ha

    The Baltimore talkers, take a seat!!!!

  7. tdk24 says: Jan 15, 2011 11:14 PM

    Flacco is so overrated.

  8. mborz says: Jan 15, 2011 11:15 PM

    @tomnickle: Not sure what Ward said that was so disrespectful.

    The Ravens did say to the media after the regular season lost that they wanted to meet the Steelers in the playoffs.

    And the Steelers have put them out, every time.

    And the Ravens will be ticked about it for a long time. I’m sure they will say the same thing.

    That’s pretty much the entirety of what was quoted. It may not be the most respectful thing ever uttered by a player, but I think it’s a stretch to try to paint this as some kind of serious disrespect. Especially with the kind of trash talk teams have been doing leading up to this weekend’s games.

  9. cobrala says: Jan 15, 2011 11:15 PM

    I hate Hines Ward.

  10. pfii63 says: Jan 15, 2011 11:16 PM

    Awww… once again Mr. Suggs gets to watch the elite teams from the comfort of his sofa.

    Yet no doubt we will be hearing his opinion all week.

    Winners win and talkers talk, Terrell.

    Let’s face it–Hines is right, even though the article title is misleading because it mostly talks about Ben.

  14. echoplex89 says: Jan 15, 2011 11:25 PM

    I love Polamalu and Mendenhall, but players like Harrison and Ward keep me from supporting the steelers.

    There’s a reason everyone around the league thinks he’s a dirty player. Because he is. He’s a jerk.

    Oh well, At least the Pirates are still terrible.

    18 losing seasons and counting.

    @tomnickle

    u have no clue what u r talking about.. the ravens all week were saying they wanted us and were going to beat us at our home, suggs wears a tshirt with raven giving middle finger, u say he has no class. go check the charities he runs, spends time with in pittsburgh area, and he said many times he repsects them but their still is a rivalry there and ppl do get emotional. and its not even like he cursed… and his team won against a team that was talking bout steelers all week.. why shouldnt he gloat a lil bit

  16. bspurloc says: Jan 15, 2011 11:25 PM

    .
    still not sure why ed reed didnt get flagged for hitting rothy int he head ont aht fumble TD play.

    he WENT for bens HEAD look at the play. he didnt go for the ball in the play. he slapped at bens head with both hands and hit it with both hands knocking the ball out on the way to his head.

    refs need to get consistant. I dont care about the non penalty BUT if that was peyton or brady.. yellow would have been all over the field

    sounds like there are some bitter fans on here. tomnickles, tomdimes, whatever ur name is, calm down buddy its just a game. obviously your team lost, hines ward can celebrate whoopin some raven ass for tonight and he’ll get right back to work on the pats tomorrow. Thats just how its goes sometimes, mike wallace may have had an offensive PI, but does that explain boldin and housh’s choke jobs down the stretch? those are just a few of the many mistakes made by both teams tonite, in the end the steelers just made a couple more plays. it could be worse, u could be a viking fan like me!

  26. westmktb15 says: Jan 15, 2011 11:39 PM

    @tomnickle
    Damn, either you hate the Steelers or you hate Hines Ward. All he is doing is putting an ending to this year’s trash talking between the two teams. He is just stating a fact that they keep “putting them out of the tournament.” Why should he be keeping his head down and looking forward towards the Patriots? He just got out of a big emotional win, and he has all week to get prepared for the Pats or the JETS (if you forgot they still had to play a game to even get to play the Steelers). I’m not even a Pats or Steelers fan. I just hate dumbasses like you making too much out of a damn comment. YOUR TEAM LOST GET OVER IT.

  27. 8man says: Jan 15, 2011 11:41 PM

    The Patriots have a game to win tomorrow just to get to the game where they will play the Steelers.

    And the Steelers have a 24 hour head start.

    And I’m so tired of hearing about the game tomorrow. Time to play it already.

    Tom, it’s time to be Terrific. Go Patriots!

  28. Deb says: Jan 15, 2011 11:43 PM

    tomnickle says …

    How about you put your head down, realize you’ve got the Patriots next week and start preparing.
    ————————————————-
    So Ward is arrogant for saying after the game that the Steelers put the Ravens out of the tournament? Aren’t you arrogant for deciding before the game that the Pats have already won?

  29. grudenthediva says: Jan 15, 2011 11:43 PM

    “I wouldn’t be interested in gloating in the face of a team that I SHOULD respect.”

    Um, the Ravens gloat and talk smack all week to a team that’s won two Super Bowls in the last several years. They SHOULD respect Pittsburgh moreso than the Steelers should respect Baltimore. Ray Ray and Suggs talk and talk all week and then when they get shut down you’re gonna dump on Hines for delivering one of the final words?

    Okay.

    Respect? You mean like the team that says they were glad they broke Roethlisberger’s nose, then paraded around in t-shirts flipping the bird at them?
    Like that respect?

    Respect is a two-way street. You gotta give it to get it.

  33. steeltownpride says: Jan 15, 2011 11:50 PM

    So you find it offensive to talk trash after the game ? But before the game its ok ? lol Talk about sore losers . The Steelers let the Ravens do all the talking before kickoff . Now that the Ravens lost they Steelers are classless for talking ? lol Priceless Raven fans . See you next season lol 0-3 now in the playoffs against the Steelers . Ohhhhh the horror

  34. jwil444 says: Jan 15, 2011 11:56 PM

    Sometimes you just need to shut up and play. Baltimore might do well to take that approach next year.

    Look for the Jets to be the next big mouths that get run.

  35. jmp527 says: Jan 16, 2011 12:01 AM

    You can hate Hines Ward all you want. Anyone that loves winning football games would pay to have them play for their team. I didn’t see or hear any Steelers talking trash to the media all week or wearing indecent shirts.

  36. beyonderhawk says: Jan 16, 2011 12:03 AM

    Tj housmensadah has been wondering why Seattle let him go? He proved it today again all mouth and no play! When he had a chance on the last play of the game to catch the ball for a first down he dropped the past like the looser he is “shut up an play already ” and he was complaining since he got to Baltimore how he wanted to be more involved in the offense and give him the ball! I wonder what your teammates really think about you the guy with the big mouth but not the big plays? Heyand Tj by the way you said the team you would like to play in the playoffs would be Seattle cause you want to get back at coach carrol? Hahahahaha! not this year they told you keep the 7 mill when the cut you but just shut up already dawg!! Your washed up!!!!! Beyonderhawk

  37. pappyjoe69 says: Jan 16, 2011 12:06 AM

    All I have to say is: Hines Ward – All Time Great Steeler Wide Reciever – Best Blocker EVER at the Wide Receiver Position – Super Bowl MVP – Off the Field “Social Inequalities” Supporter – Team Leader – Family Man – Get over it…the more you hate him, the more we love and respect him for what he means to Steeler Nation and the children he cares so much about! Thank you Hines Ward, thank you for your relentless pusuit of perfection both on and off the field!

  38. roseann894 says: Jan 16, 2011 12:15 AM

    I guess all the commentary about Roethlisberger changing his lifestyle was correct. Apparently he’s entered into a same-sex relationship with Dierdorf, judging by the latter’s constant references to the QB by his first name while calling all other players by their surname.

    compared to Suggs’ T shirt this is nothing…or compared to another ex-Raven Bart Scott…I hate the Steelers as a Pats fan but I respect Hines Ward and most of their players…Anthony Smith excluded :)). Hoping for a Steelers-Pats match..of course the Steelers would prefer the Jets.

  41. Andre's Johnson says: Jan 16, 2011 12:34 AM

    I’ve come to the conclusion that there is lots of sexual tension between the Steelers and the Ravens.

  42. westmktb15 says: Jan 16, 2011 12:41 AM

    @tomnickle
    Are you a Steelers or Hines Ward hater? Dude, he is just commenting after a very emotional game. What else do you want him to say? “Um, I’m looking forward to playing the Patriots or the Jets in the Conference championship game.” And how do you know that they are playing the Pats? And how are they sooooooo “FORTUNATE?”Did you not see the first half? The Steelers were handing them the game. I’m not even a Steelers fan, but I hate seeing comments like yours blaming a loss on one play. GEEEZ DUDE, I would have to have like 18 hands to count how many times a game could have been decided on one play this year. The fact is, the Steelers made the plays in the 4th quarter (when the game matters), and the Ravens made the plays in the 1st quarter (yes the game matters then too, but if you let your opponents make plays in the 4th you will probably lose).

    Before any Raven’s fans get upset with what Hines said, he had a BIG grin on his face at the time.

    Oh and I have no horse in this race at all. Just utterly shocked the officiating was this bad and this one sided.

    Anyway, go Packers!

  46. steelersfan88007 says: Jan 16, 2011 1:06 AM

    As far as Steelers fans rooting for the Jets, it has more to do with a home field AFC championship game than fear of the Patriots. Also, as a Steelers fan, I’m glad we got to face the Ravens a third time. If we don’t make it past the next level, at least we can say we beat the Ratbirds two out of three times instead of splitting our two games! Go Steelers!

    its funny to read some of these posts.all you people that are ragging on hines ward?if he was on your team he would be the greatest gift.dont hate.he is gonna be a hall of famer some day.along with the many and many other steelers that got in are gonna get in.one of the greatest teams of all times.

    hate all you want.remember we win super bowls

    oh to all the idiots who got pats winning the super bowl?they havent won anything yet,they got the Jets if they win they got to deal with steelers D.and they want revenge from earlier in season

  50. lawboy2000 says: Jan 16, 2011 1:19 AM

    Did you judgmental clowns see Suggs’ t-shirt this week? THAT is disrespect. Calling it as it is after the game like Ward did is just poor sportsmanship.

    And by the way, when the officials start calling offensive lineman for holding James Harrison and LaMarr Woodley on EVERY play, then you clowns can complain about the officiating.

  51. lawboy2000 says: Jan 16, 2011 1:25 AM

    I know I’m not saying anything new here, however the Ravens have TWO people responsible for the death of two human beings. Only in America can you literally kill someone and skate on lawyer fees..

  53. downsouth49er says: Jan 16, 2011 1:35 AM

    No the refs put them out this year Hines, with that BS holding call on the punt return for a TD. The steelers guy flopped and the stupid refs fell for it.

  54. halftermguv says: Jan 16, 2011 1:50 AM

    24 yards of offense in the second half…it’s going to be a long cold winter Ravens fans. Tell your players to STFU and act like you’ve been there before.

  55. randomcommenter says: Jan 16, 2011 1:59 AM

    The Ravens got their share of breaks as well. That TD with the ball just lying on the ground is one of the biggest gift TDs i’ve even seen.

    Any so called break the steelers got was equaled by the Ravens. Wallace gets a pass interference. The Ravens get one too on the next drive.

    Ray Rice fumbles. Mendenhall fumbles.

    Flacco throws an INT. Ben gives the gift TD on a fumble.

    Maybe the Ravens should accept the fact that the Steelers are better. Even in the last two Raven wins against Charlie Batch and Dennis Dixon, the Ravens had to get a last second win.

    Care to guess the score if Flacco missed a game against the Steelers?

  56. dapackisback says: Jan 16, 2011 2:16 AM

    if anybody doesn’t believe that there was an actual hold that occurred on the Ravens on that punt return, you need to go to NFL.COM – go to the video highlights section of the Ravens-Steelers game, click on the link for the punt return and pay attention to the lower left of the screen at around the 12 second mark, if you still don’t see it you have three choices:
    1. get your eyes checked
    2. have your mother explain it to you
    3. admit to yourself that you’re just too stupid to watch football and actually understand what just happened

  57. heyzeus143 says: Jan 16, 2011 2:24 AM

    Joe Slacco (hey mr fantasy) vs Ben (gamer, winner, champ) equals Steeler victory – Ed’s just still salty bout Hines jackin him up a few years ago, ever notice how Mr 100 greatest player Ed Reed disappears against the Lers…Ed’s head’s on a swivel – runs in the family

  58. patriotinvasion says: Jan 16, 2011 2:39 AM

    Patriots fan here…obviously I hate the Steelers since they’re a rival, but I respect that team WAY more than the Ravens. Other than Ray, no one on that team has ever won anything…One mouthy loser team down, one to go…as for the Steelers, it would be nice to beat them in the AFC Championship Game at Gillette for a change…tired of beating them at Heinz :-)

  59. dotnukem says: Jan 16, 2011 2:54 AM

    I hate the Steelers.. especially RoofieBurger.. But damn that was a good game, and a convincing victory.. atleast Suggs held up his end of the bargain.. he was stalkin RuthlessRaper all day.. yet another Baltimore Offense fails the Defense..

  60. miketetreault says: Jan 16, 2011 2:54 AM

    Ravens all day had no consistent offense, should of integrated some slant routes in to get some momentum. Guess whosyourmomma proved why he was cut. Glad to Suggs’ sophisticated self out the playoffs too. As for the Steelers they’ll win the superbowl if the Jets knock out the Pats today…..but thats not happening and you can’t trade in AFC championship appearances in for a Lombardi trophy.

  61. CKL says: Jan 16, 2011 3:04 AM

    So what calls/no calls did the Cravens fans and players blame for this loss? Because heaven knows, no one but refs ever decide games for those whiny SOBs.
    Thank you Pittsburgh for stomping those idiots out. I think they are one of the few teams that pretty much every AFC team fan hates for one reason or the other.

  62. larrydavidstern says: Jan 16, 2011 4:49 AM

    Like I continue to say about Joe Flacco, he is waht he is, a solid not special quarterback. He just doesn’t have the IT factor or the leadership qualities to ever led a team to a Superbowl victory. Sorry Ravens fans, see around 2020ish when the Ravnes finally have decided to move on from Flacco! Well, hopefully we are all still around by then. Damn those Mayans for freaking everybody out!

    Hey, Mr. Suggs. Does this mean that you’re not going to New England to shut up Tom Brady after all?

    I suppose it’s also Tom Brady’s fault that the Ravens gagged in the second half, right Terrell….right? Hello, Terrell….are you there? I can’t hear you….

  67. mistrezzrachael says: Jan 16, 2011 6:23 AM

    Not a fan of either team…BUT, watching that game early, was hard to not think that Ravens were better team.

    However, the Steelers came out in 2nd half and took it to Ravens…and outplayed them.

    Ravens, like jets, spend much too much time …TALKING and whining about officiating..like the jets.

    Suggs, spent his week commenting about someone who they were not even playing…NE & Brady..so shows where his mindset was..not on Steelers….Suggs can now enjoy the pro bowl.

    for all the talent [ on paper]…Ravens classic underachievers. Reminds me alot of NE’s domination over Colts in Titles.

  68. geezohman says: Jan 16, 2011 7:16 AM

    The Steeler defense definitely keep Pitt in the game when the offense watched a ‘fumble’ on the field picked up by the Ravens and run in for a TD, and a fumble.

    Yes the offense then came back and did their thing, but again the defense shutdown the Ravens.

    U need all 3 phases of the game.

    You have to discount the Refs.. they’re human and thats what they have ‘challange’ and automatic replay in the booth.

    I was there in nose bleed heaven and wow, we did not like the calls or no calls.

    My EARs are still RINGING, it was loud.

    Thanks Pitt for a great pre-game ARMED FORCES ceremony

  72. mswravens says: Jan 16, 2011 7:42 AM

    There are sore winners & sore losers. There are classy winners & classy losers. Really has nothing to do with who is or isn’t trash talking before or after…judge each player by how they act. You never hear a peep from Ward when he loses…when he wins, he’s the loudest mouth with the biggest sh*t eating grin on his face. The guy is a classless, sore winner. That’s as much a fact as is the fact that the Roethlisberger led Steelers own the Ravens.

    Yes, Ward is a HOF receiver & blocker, and of course anyone being honest would love to have him on their team. Doesn’t change the fact that he’s a classless piece of crap! …and Suggs’ t-shirt, which is fit to be worn by a fan, but crossed the line to be worn by a player, doesn’t give Ward or anyone else license to be a big fat turd…it only means that Suggs lacks class as well. Face it, we’re dealing with a bunch of overpaid, overgrown immature kids…are we surprised??? Does it even matter??? It’s like debating the officiating…who really cares. what matters is Steelers won – again – and get to move on!

    …and we get to start thinking about our lousy baseball team a week or so earlier than folks in the burgh get to start thinking about their even lousier baseball team, if they even bother to do so anymore…

    for a City that was screwed over by the Colts, and then the NFL, to have a team in its 15th year of existence to be involved in the widely recognized “best rivalry in the NFL if not all sports” is truly an honor. We’d be kidding ouselves if we didn’t recognize that the rivalry exists largey because the Steeers are one of the premier & storied franchises in the history of the NFL. And to this point, it’s still a big brother-little brother relationship, and we all know who the little brother is in this story. Even when it looks like we’ll pull it out, big brother manages to beat us again. Our day will come. Our coaching & QB play isn’t good enough. Hope that will change. In the meantime, it’s a great rivalry & a lot of fun, but this one will definitely sting for a while.

    On another note – I think it’s time for the NFL world to recognize that it’s no longer a question of Brady v Manning…it’s Brady v. Ben. If you NEED to win a game, who do you want? I take Brady 1st, Ben 2nd…might not even take Manning 3rd. Between the lines, Ben is simply incredible. Steelers successisn’t all about Ben, as much as Pats is w/Brady & Colts is w/Manning…but come one, where are they without Ben???

    ——————–

    Well..that’s assuming the Pats do what they do and win today’s tough matchup, we’ll have yet another game between the two best teams and best franchises in the NFL. Got to take care of business first today.

    Hines Ward is a guy you’d love to have on your team, but hate otherwise. I think he’s in the Rodney Harrison category. Steelers have done a great job phasing him out gracefully and working their young guys in there. Hines is a true football player and as much as I hate his mouth, I have to respect how he plays the game.

  79. domeunit says: Jan 16, 2011 8:46 AM

    look I hate Hines Ward as much as any other Ravens fan, but the Ravens didn’t get it done, and Hines has every right to talk as much as he wants. The Ravens were up by 14 and turned the ball over in their zone 3 drives in a row, it was literally the most pathetic showing by any Ravens offense I’ve ever seen. Steelers earned it no doubt, but I swear to God if I wake up on Monday and Cam Cameron still has a job, I may go postal. We can say “ooo man the Pats are going to knock them out blah blah blah”…fact is the Ravens choked up and didn’t get it done, and the Steelers have bragging rights until next year

    Yes the games are close but is it really a rivalry when one team wins 70% of the time?

    ===============================
    Yes, it’s a rivalry. Not all great rivalries are defined by even results. The best rivalry in sports may be the Red Sox and Yankees and one side has owned most of it (unfortunately, not mine). It is a rivalry if both teams and their fan bases put more emphasis on that game than all others on your schedule.

    There are sore winners & sore losers. There are classy winners & classy losers. Really has nothing to do with who is or isn’t trash talking before or after…judge each player by how they act. You never hear a peep from Ward when he loses…when he wins, he’s the loudest mouth with the biggest sh*t eating grin on his face. The guy is a classless, sore winner. That’s as much a fact as is the fact that the Roethlisberger led Steelers own the Ravens.

    Yes, Ward is a HOF receiver & blocker, and of course anyone being honest would love to have him on their team. Doesn’t change the fact that he’s a classless piece of crap! …and Suggs’ t-shirt, which is fit to be worn by a fan, but crossed the line to be worn by a player, doesn’t give Ward or anyone else license to be a big fat turd…it only means that Suggs lacks class as well. Face it, we’re dealing with a bunch of overpaid, overgrown immature kids…are we surprised??? Does it even matter??? It’s like debating the officiating…who really cares. what matters is Steelers won – again – and get to move on!

    …and we get to start thinking about our lousy baseball team a week or so earlier than folks in the burgh get to start thinking about their even lousier baseball team, if they even bother to do so anymore…
    ________________________________
    Wait a minute, Ward is a classless sore winner because he doesn’t run off at the mouth before the game or talk trash and make excuses about how the best team didn’t win when he loses? Ward is a gamer, plain and simple, and tends to keep everything on the field. Personally, I don’t think Ward’s comments really even quality as trash talk. All he did was say what was perfectly obvious: The Ravens don’t just want to advance in the playoffs, they want to do it by beating the Steelers. Considering the rivalry, and the problems they’ve had against the Steelers that makes sense. You don’t think that SB run the Colts finally made in ’06 was a little sweeter because they finally managed to beat the Pats in the Playoffs in the AFC Championship game? Ward also said that the Steelers keep knocking the Ravens out of the playoffs. That’s a simple statement of fact. The final bit was that the Ravens would likely be quite upset about the loss. If they’re not, then they don’t deserve to ever win a playoff game. Just as beating the Steelers and advancing in the playoffs likely would have carried some extra satisfaction, getting knocked out of the playoffs by the Steelers probably bothers them more than a loss to a team like the Jets would have.

  82. joerevs300 says: Jan 16, 2011 9:17 AM

    I don’t see how you can put this game on the Ravens coaches (after seeing some of the comments).

    They’ve coached Ray Rice pretty well, considering that was his first fumble in 402 carries. He got the ball away from his body trying to get extra yardage and Ryan Clark made an outstanding play.

    They’ve coached their defense pretty well, is it the coaches fault that Webb got absolutely burned by a ROOKIE WR on the decisive play of the game, a 3rd and 19? When the Ravens had 8 people in coverage?

    No matter how well you coach the players, it is up to the players to execute.

    The Ravens outexecuted Pittsburgh in the first half. That’s why they were up 21-7 and in control.

    Pittsburgh made far, far more big plays, both on offense and defense in the 2nd half, and that’s why they are moving on and Baltimore is sitting at home.

    The only way Baltimore was going to lose this game is if they turned the ball over in the 2nd half. The Steelers rattled them, and then the Ravens folded like a deck of cards.

    For a team that loves to talk trash, they have the weakest mental toughness of any team I’ve seen with that kind of talent in a very long time.

    It’s a broken record at this point. Maybe it is time for some roster turnover in Baltimore.

  83. joerevs300 says: Jan 16, 2011 9:21 AM

    And one more thing…remember how this was going to be the year that Baltimore’s offense caught up with their defense?

    Total Plays: 53
    Total Yards: 126
    Yards per play: 2.37
    Drops: 2 (one by Boldin in the end zone, and the final one by Housh).

    If not for the turnovers Baltimore could have nearly been shut out in this game. The Steelers secondary completely blanketed Boldin (1 catch, -2 yards) and Housh (3 catches, 38 yards) and Mason was a non factor (no catches). Even Heap didn’t come close to the factor he was last week.

    In the end, Baltimore cannot compete with the elite teams in the AFC offensively with any consistency.

    So they will continue to compete for the AFC North title, but unless they secure home field throughout the playoffs, I don’t see any way they will get to a Super Bowl anytime soon.

  84. ironcity330 says: Jan 16, 2011 9:32 AM

    Bottom line, Steelers always KO the Ravens from the playoffs!! This team and organization always excels under adversity, or when they are not picked to succeed (people had them finishing 3rd in the AFC north). You will always have trash talking but if you watched the interviews after the game, all players say they respect each other and this rivalry.
    O-line get healthy, where playing next Sunday!!!

    The officials during EVERY ravens-steelers game “We keep putting them out of the tournament.” Consistently the most rigged game in the NFL

    ————————————————–

    This doesnt even bother real fans of football or steeler fans anymore. EVERY time we win, some idiot always picks ONE play and acts like that was the main thing that lost the game. Let me state sopme facts:
    1) ok, if the ravens get away with a hold and they score. Score is 28-24. We srove down the field the next series and scored a td. SCORE: 31-28. How exactly did that lose the game?
    2)126 yards TOTAL offense??? refs again????
    3)Flacco, like always is good for an int and a fumble! refs again?
    4)3 and 20—pass for 50 yds against this great baltimore D? refs again?
    5)dropped pass Bolden, takes 7 off board==refs again?
    6) TJ dropped pass–reffs again?

    look, hate the steelers all you want, and keep changing teams every week hoping that team can do what your team couldnt. If we lose next week, fans of the JETS pr PATS will be happy, your team just wasnt good enough to get to that game, period!

  87. mswravens says: Jan 16, 2011 10:20 AM

    I love it! Say something about that cheap shot artist Hines Ward, recognized by other players as one of the dirtiest players in the league, & nobody “likes” the post…but post what an honor it is to be the Steelers top rival in this big brother-little brother relationship, and you all love it! I guess some of us can be objective, and some of you can’t.

    It’s like when Billick was our coach and my Redskin fan friends would complain about what an A**hole he was…I always said “yeah, but he’s our A**hole”…guess what Steeler fans, Hines Ward is your A**hole. You love him, and whomever he plays for would love him, but everyone else sees him for what he is, in addition to being a blue chip HOF player. Embrace it & own it, don’t lie to yourselves and everyone else like the band of homers you obviously are…

    It seems that the Steelers have the Ravens number. Steeler fan you have to admit you were a little worried in the first half, but they always talk about the 12th man in Seattle, I truly believe that the real 12th man is at Heinz Field. Way to go Steeler fans. Do you think it was Ray Lewis last game? http://www.askasportswriter.com

    Thank you Pittsburgh for stomping those idiots out. I think they are one of the few teams that pretty much every AFC team fan hates for one reason or the other.
    ——
    You can tell the difference between a fan who lives in Pittsburgh, and a fan who lives in Iowa and roots for the Steelers. The major difference? The real Steeler fans, the ones with history to the team and attachment to the city, just accept their victory and move on. It’s the casual fan who knows nothing about football and then picks the Steelers to cheer for that is usually a total jackass

    As far as Steelers fans rooting for the Jets, it has more to do with a home field AFC championship game than fear of the Patriots.
    ———————————————————

    Yeah, right.

    Say that enough times, and you might stop remembering that New England OWNS the Steelers, in their house as well as ours.

    That said, some thoughts from someone who dislikes but respects both teams yesterday:

    The Ravens are being crucified for falling down in the second half. They did. But no worse than the Steelers did in the first half.

    Joe Flacco is not nearly as good as Baltimore and their fans think he is.

    Both teams have awesome defenses, despite what the score suggets.

    Roethlisberger may be a jackass and a sexual predator, but dude throws an incredible third and nineteen (which is why Steeler fans overlook their moral compasses and love this guy in spite of who he really is).

    The officials called a horrible game yesterday, but they called it FAIRLY, with crappy calls against BOTH teams. The refs made a mess of this game, but they didn’t decide it, the two teams did; when Roethlisberger hit his deep pass for a catch, and when TJ and Bouldan didn’t make THEIRS.

    While the Steelers beat the Ravens yet again, they can’t claim to have “brought hell” on them, the game was back and forth and a one-score difference. Two well matched teams played balls-out yesterday, and one was just a smidge better than the other.

    Suggs was clearly going for the ball yesterday, not Roethlisberger’s head. I despise both of those clowns, but they are each talented players. If only somehow Suggs could have slapped Ben into unconciousness and had his hand bounce off the helmet and knock HIMSELF out as well, that would have been the best play of the decade.

    How does a group of men – on BOTH sides – stand around a football that has NOT been whistled dead? Kudos to Redding (?) for having the smarts to finally pick it up (watch the replay; he wasn’t going to as he noticed noone else did, then decides “the hell with them!”)

    Did I mention Joe Flacco is not nearly as good as Baltimore and their fans think he is.

    Great game yesterday, messy as it was it was way better than the GB/ATL game.

  92. ken1313 says: Jan 16, 2011 10:36 AM

    The answer is simple…and it hasn’t changed in years…the Ravens simply lack the discipline to ever advance any farther in the “tournament”. Sure…they can win a first round game….that’s usually where the weaker “flukey” playoff teams exit (Like last year’s Patriots squad and this year’s Chiefs and Colts)…but once they get to the later rounds, where they have to play the better teams…….it’s adios……..and as much as I dislike the Steelers…..I thouroghly enjoyed watching them shut the mouthy Ravens up again. It’s kinda like the sunset…..you know it’s coming….so you grab a cold beer….some popcorn (apologies to T.O.) and sit in your lounge chair and enjoy the show !

    To the Hines Ward haters:

    Hines is classy. He does respect the Ravens. He just hates their guts. Understand it, quit whining.

    If you would just think how many years and fights he has had with them……put yourself in his shoes for one second.

    Anyone can sit their and call Suggs dirty or a bigmouth, or Ray Lewis. Ed Reed is dirty also. Trapp was dirty. Bart Scott, on and on.

    These guys have fought each other for more than a decade. Hines and Ray Lewis have been there for just about all of it.

    Hines walks the walk. He is clutch, he is tough as anyone and he will knock you out. Don’t expect him to play loverboy after the game. He is there to win, not appease everyone’s feelings.

    If Baltimore had him and not the Steelers, the Ravens would have about 3 Super Bowl Rings now. And that really is the bottom line, isn’t it?

  96. tpkaufma says: Jan 16, 2011 11:10 AM

    Yet another Baltimore spanking by Pittsburgh. Ravens got spotted 14 gimmie points and still wind up showing the losers they all are. Baltimore is nothing more than a pathetic “Pittsburgh wanna-be” team with that loser 1-n-done Flacco and Ray old-man Lewis.

    As long as Pgh is in the NFL, rest assured Baltimore is going home early each year, just as Heinz Ward stated.

    I just have one question for Steelers fans: why are you rooting for a serial rapist? I just don’t get it. Maybe it’s not just Steelers fans, but football fans in general. I mean, the Eagles fans all fell in love with Michael Ick, and that was pretty disgusting too. But Pig Pen actually raped two people and who knows how many others who haven’t come forward. Rape is an extremely serious crime.

  101. mborz says: Jan 16, 2011 11:59 AM

    @dtrb10:

    You know another BS call? When Ward was flagged 15 yards when everyone who saw the play agreed it should have been offsetting penalties. It backed the Steelers up (1st and 19 at their own 11). But let’s focus on what happened after that: Ben completes a 7 yarder, then completes a 20 yard pass to Wallace for a 1st down.

    Bad call negated.

    Now let’s focus on the holding call you’re upset about. The Ravens get the ball in great field position even with the hold. What happened after that? Boldin drops a cake-easy TD pass and the Ravens settle for a field goal. They could have negated the bad call by making a catch that should have undoubtedly been caught, but they didn’t.

    Bad call not negated.

    Questionable calls happened to both teams. Typically, the teams that win are the teams that make the questionable calls not matter.

    The Ravens failed to do that. The Steelers succeeded at doing it.

    One more thing. Unless that punt return for a TD would have been worth 14 points, the Ravens still would have likely lost. That TD would have only put them up 4, and then they gave up a TD to the Steelers, so they would have likely lost by 3. Especially given that on their final drive with great field position (starting in Pittsburgh territory), they were able to generate minus 8 yards. And then capped the game with another ridiculous drop.

    Also, why aren’t you whining about the non calls for when Ben was hit in the head prior to the fumble? Or when he was hit below the knee? Or the offensive interference on the Ravens last drive that was not called? Or all the holds that were not called -especially involving James Harrison?

    here is Ray Ray comment on HIS offense:
    “I tell you time and time again, the No. 1 thing you cannot do is turn the ball over in the red zone,” Lewis said. “That will never change in this business ever. We are good, but to overcome all of that is harsh on my defense, and I wouldn’t put that much on my defense because we went out and played our hearts out.”

    ==================

    but isn’t that what the Steeler defense did when Steeler offense gave up 2 TD turnovers in the second half?
    Did not the Steeler defense shut down Raven offense.
    Where was the Raven defense in the third quarter and fourth quarter… did they forget it was a 60 minute game?

    Bring back those 60 Minute men shirts from Greg Lloyd and Kevin !

  106. mswravens says: Jan 16, 2011 1:27 PM

    @jamson64 – are you done whining about all the penalties that weren’t called against the Ravens? Glad to know you had your excuses at the ready in case you guys lost.

    Good, now lets work on your education a little bit.

    a) I never said Ward received the majority of the vote;

    b) don’t assume anything about what I know or don’t know. I assure you that I know much more than someone like you would every credit me with knowing;

    c) 11.6% is a far more impressive number than you give credit for…and that’s ok, because you may not be intelligent enough to understand statistics;

    d) 11.6% = about one out of every 8.6 votes. Get that? That means that for every 8-9 players who voted, they chose Hines Ward as the dirtiest player in the league.

    e) There are 32 teams, with 53 players on each roster. That’s 1696 players. That means that every player who voted had 1696 guys to choose from as the dirtiest player in the league, and Hines Ward kept coming up in every 8-9 votes.

    Now, I know when you just see the number 11.6% it doesn’t seem very impressive to you. But hopefully, you now see that it’s quite an impressive accomplishment. And you know what, if you still want to discount that vote for whatever reason, at the very least it evidences that out of every 8-9 votes, one guy thinks Hines Ward is as big an A**hole as I do!

    Now that we’ve cleared that up, is there any other BS I’ve posted that I can help you better understand???

    But hey, congrats to your team. They’re the better team. They’ve proven that time and again the last few years. It sucks, but that too is reality. Just like it’s true that neither of our teams are made up of admirable choir boys. Enjoy your victory & deal with it!

    “It’s hard to sit there and tell everybody it’s a violent sport but tone it down a little. When I go across the middle, those guys aren’t going to tackle me softly and lay me down to the ground. That’s not football. I find it ironic that now you see a receiver delivering blows, and it’s an issue. But I haven’t changed. I’ve been doing it this way for 11 years,” Ward said.

    Read up….you could learn something. Just like you losers blaming the officials you don’t find it obvious that other players don’t like a physical winner like Ward. Jealousy will do that.

    MSGRaven- btw do a little math. Essentially 32 or so of the players polled picked Ward. How many of them were Ravens, Bengals, or Browns? Do tell. This should be good.

    News Flash 32 players of around 1700 NFL Players voted for Hines.

    LOL like playing mind games with a zombie.

    The Ravens are clearly a great team. But in some respects, the fact is they are turning into the newest version of the old Houston Oilers when it comes to the Steelers in the playoffs.

    They are arguably the best rivalry in the NFL right now. Love every time we play against each other, and I respect the heck out of the Ravens. I would love many of their players if they played for the Steelers.

    GO STEELERS!!

    Looks like all the Raven fans not to happy the Steeler had antidote for the BIRD FLU. Just like the PATS, Baltimore can’t win the big one.. Maybe we can get the Ravens and PATS to play in the CHOKE BOWL next week.

    Patriots fan here…obviously I hate the Steelers since they’re a rival, but I respect that team WAY more than the Ravens. Other than Ray, no one on that team has ever won anything…One mouthy loser team down, one to go…as for the Steelers, it would be nice to beat them in the AFC Championship Game at Gillette for a change…tired of beating them at Heinz .

    Maybe next decade

    Baltimore needs to go into the offseason with the idea of beating the Stoolers, period. Whatever needs to be done should be done, they are good but not quite good enough. We dont want this to turn into the socalled Browns-Steelers rivalry, which we know has long been one sided.

    You’re an idiot. Why does Hines Ward, Superbowl 40 MVP and future Hall of Famer have to keep his head down? What does class have to do with winning football games? Stop crying about the refs, the Steelers had more calls against them then for them. The good teams over come the penalties, the bad ones just use them as an excuse for losing. Man up douche bag and admit your team lost the game. Your big name, big $money recievers dropped balls when it counted. I am sure the refs had a lot to do with that. Meanwhile, the Steeler’s rookies, you know, the kids that get paid all year what Boldin gets paid for one game, made the plays when it counted. Here’s another thing, where do you think those young WRs learn to be tough, block, and make clutch catches?

    Have to give it to Hines, yes they did no question about it.

    As for the typical Steeler comments, sorry but Flacco has not played worse then Ben in this game, had his receiver actually caught the balls he delivered. Hines caught a tough catch in double coverage to keep the chains moving, Ravens receiver dropped key delivered passes, not Falcco’s fault.

    As for Suggs, no question he was the best player in that game. Three sacks on the unsackable Ben, plus exposing a week offensive line, enough said. No other player stood out more.
