Steelers’ Hampton thinks Ravens have to talk to feel tough

Casey Hampton, Willie McGhee AP

There’s a certain type of schoolyard bully who has to talk tough in order to make himself feel tough. According to Steelers defensive tackle Casey Hampton, the Baltimore Ravens are just that kind of schoolyard bully.

With the next installment in the heated Ravens-Steelers rivalry now just five days away, Hampton says the Ravens talk up the rivalry not because they’re confident they can beat the Steelers, but because they have to talk themselves into thinking they can beat the Steelers.

“They talk a whole lot,” Hampton told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “They don’t like us. I think they don’t like us a lot more than we don’t like them. I think they have to talk themselves into it, kind of, know what I mean? Since I’ve been here, we’ve beat them a lot more than they beat us. They have to talk about it a whole lot.”

The Steelers had come-from-behind wins over the Ravens late in the 2010 regular season and again in the playoffs, and Hampton said those games gave the Steelers more confidence about the way they match up with the Ravens.

“It seems like they always have us beat and we always end up beating them, and they always feel like they should have won.” Hampton said. “That’s what makes it so sweeter. At the end of the day, if you win you win, no matter how you get it done. We have two physical teams that kind of play similar styles. We just seem to come out on the winning end more.”

    Agreed

    There are no absolutes in a matchup like Steelers/Ravens. Less than a week away!!

  3. riverhorsey says: Sep 6, 2011 8:54 AM

    If I recall the Steelers were the ones doing all the talking the last couple months.

  4. jacunn2000 says: Sep 6, 2011 8:54 AM

    No, I am pretty sure that the Raven’s are tough. The Raven’s have set the bar in Smashmouth football in the 2000’s. Hampton is the only one talking now.

  5. itsacurse says: Sep 6, 2011 8:55 AM

    Ugh, can’t they play one freakin game before they start with this stuff?

  6. humbleminded85 says: Sep 6, 2011 8:58 AM

    Let the smack talk begin!!!! Its Steelers/Ravens week baby!!!!!!! Let me say though as a Ravens fan I think Mr. Hampton is right about the “win is a win” quote. Now let me also say that i’d take Haloti “ill break bens nose again” Ngata any day over Hampton. Never the less, this is one hell of a rivalry and here’s to another great Ravens/Steelers clash!!!!

  7. axespray says: Sep 6, 2011 9:00 AM

    The Reason why the Current Steelers will always own the Current Ravens is cause the steelers are a more complete team.
    2 Pro Bowl OLBs, 2 Good ILBs, 3 to 5 Good DL men, more WRs, etc.

    Meanwhile Baltimore has like, A OLB, A MLB, A DL men, A Safety, A WR.

    The Ravens are like Ice Cube’s house on Friday, They got the Kool Aid, but no sugar, The cereal, but no milk, the Peanut Butter with no jelly.

    Shut your old mouth! Wait until our new hitman(Pollard) destroys your QB like our old hitman used to(B. Scott)

  9. ballinmore says: Sep 6, 2011 9:04 AM

    Isn’t he on the same team as Ryan Clark who constantly runs his mouth?

  10. paulieorkid says: Sep 6, 2011 9:04 AM

    @itsacurse who stated to much acclaim: “Ugh, can’t they play one freakin game before they start with this stuff?”

    – – –

    Yes, the NFL would be sooooo much more interesting with nothing but boring coachspeak and no spirited rivalries to speak of.

    The guess here is you are less than interesting as a conversationalist, lover, etc. Go watch a game of chess, curling, whatever game is more your speed.

  11. jenniferxxx says: Sep 6, 2011 9:07 AM

    Yeah. Stop talking tough Ravens. You want to BE tough then do what Steelers do … roid up.

  12. citizenstrange says: Sep 6, 2011 9:08 AM

    GO STEELERS!

  13. ballinmore says: Sep 6, 2011 9:10 AM

    axespray:

    Wouldn’t buy your justification at all. Both teams have actually been exceptional at finding players that fit their system. I give the Steelers the edge on finding CB’s and lately WR’s. Pretty apparent when every defensive player that has left either team via FA has been terrible (only exception may be Bart Scott)

    Turnovers killed the Ravens last year against Pittsburgh. Been the only real difference in evenly matched games for the last 3 years.

  14. steelerfanboy says: Sep 6, 2011 9:10 AM

    That must be a pretty low bar that the Ravens set in the 2000s…what league are you watching? Most of us saw a team that did a lot of talking and only went to the big game once.

    Lot of smack coming from both sides as always. But if the Steelers win again Sunday, I hope we “Quote the Raven, nevermore.”

    You gotta win to back the smack.

  18. fattypiper03 says: Sep 6, 2011 9:12 AM

    “At the end of the day, if you win you win, no matter how you get it done”.

    Usually that means that they get the refs to ignore their penalties only to amplify the amount of calls against the Ravens. The best game in football history would be an AFC championship game between the Ravens and Steelers that the refs didn’t blow!

  19. jeffharwell3 says: Sep 6, 2011 9:14 AM

    can i just get a couple big ben to mike wallace TD’s for fantasy sake??

  20. ottograham says: Sep 6, 2011 9:18 AM

    On paper the Pittsburgh Steelers matchup better for this game. When one says the Ravens have 1 top receiver that person is mistaken. They have no legitimate threats at the receiver position. Anquan Boldin has played in three full seasons out of his total of eight. He represents no consistency, and by no means matchs up against Pittsburgh.

    While we’re on the topic, how about Joe Flacco grow a set and try to compete? He is easily the X Factor everytime Baltimore and Pittsburgh square off.

  21. steeltownpride says: Sep 6, 2011 9:21 AM

    Ballinmore says “Turnovers killed the Ravens last year against Pittsburgh. Been the only real difference in evenly matched games for the last 3 years.”

    Ballin let me ask you this ? How did the Ravens get a big lead in the playoff game against the Steelers ? They had turnovers to get you that lead . And then you had 3 straight turnovers and the Steelers took the game over for good . Well my friend you cant have it both ways . Turnovers lost you the game for sure but if the Steelers dont turn the ball over they win anyway . Turnovers hurt both teams . We just capitolize on them better than you do . And it shows in the wins we get over you .

    just making a list of the people who are actually talking this offseason…

    go ravens.

  24. S says: Sep 6, 2011 9:28 AM

    Is he talking about the Ravens or the New York Jets?

  25. outsiderj says: Sep 6, 2011 9:30 AM

    Yeah, Ray Lewis should stop calling out Big Jen
    Oh wait, it was LaMar Woodley running his mouth about Flacco.

    Reed should also stop running his mouth about Jen
    Oh wait, that was Ryan Clark running his mouth about Flacco.

    Haloti Ngata should also stop running his mouth about Pittsburgh
    Oh wait, that was Casey Hampton running his mouth.

    Where are the Ravens talking?

    ——————————————————–
    What, like the penalties they didn’t call against Ryan Clark for picking-off the pass from Flacco and knocking the ball out of Rice’s hands on the fumble?

    Or the penalty they should’ve called on Antonio Brown for running too fast through the Ravens secondary to make that big catch late in the game?

    Or the penalty they didn’t call on the Casey Hampton for making Birk and Flacco so nervous they fumbled the snap?

    Or the penalty they didn’t call on William Gay when he let TJ Houshmanloser run an easy curl route when he dropped a perfectly thrown pass?

    Or the same penalty on the TD pass to Boldin that he dropped?

    I could go on…but you get the idea…

  27. nagaswan says: Sep 6, 2011 9:32 AM

    Haha, Steelers sure feel good about those wins over the Ravens last year. I guess that makes up for losing the superbowl.

  28. domeunit says: Sep 6, 2011 9:33 AM

    Casey Hampton can’t run one sprint in camp, yet he can build up the energy to run his fat mouth…can’t wait for Sunday. Go Ravens

  29. Kaz says: Sep 6, 2011 9:34 AM

    Ravens need to worry about beating Cincy. Then they can move on to bigger fish to fry.

    I work in Baltimore…I’m surrounded by Squealer fans…They are like the freakin’ Skankees. Bandwagon fans all over the place. I honestly hate both teams. Their fans are just as mouthy as their players. Just shut up and enjoy the stressful games…if at all possible.

  33. ppdoc13 says: Sep 6, 2011 9:46 AM

    keep talking fat man. you are in the November of your career. And while you have won 6 of the last 8, we won 4/5 before that.

    It is a great rivalry game and I look forward to seeing all 2 or 3 of em every year.

    But if you go through this past off season it is your team that has been doing almost all of the talking.

    So keep talking fat man.

    Dies Irae Adwenet. (For you stupid steller fans who only speak Yins that means ” The day of judgement approaches!”

  34. holeinone09 says: Sep 6, 2011 9:48 AM

    Who cares what is said before the game by any one of the players? Both teams talk about each other. The Steelers have talked and the Ravens have talked. Whether it was in the last few months or in the past year. That isn’t important. Talk doesn’t win the game. It’s also too bad some people are still crying about past penalties, etc. Those could go both ways as well. If you win, you win. If you lose, you lose. Don’t cry about it.

    But isn’t every die hard Steeler and Raven fan anxiously awaiting this Sunday at 1 pm? This is a fantastic way to start the season, with the 2 teams that clearly will be fighting all season long for the division championship? What more could you ask for? I for one can’t wait!!

    GO STEELERS!!

    steeltownpride says:

    Three turnovers compared to two which would be the reason why I said it killed the Ravens. The sack and fumble during the regular season game that caused the playoff game to be in Pittsburgh was also what I was referring to.

  36. upyoursnfu says: Sep 6, 2011 9:49 AM

    Nothing new….whiny Ravens fans. Whaaaaa….the refs. Whaaaaaaaa, pass interference. Whaaaaaa….the NFL hates the Ravens. Whaaaaa Whaaaaa Whaaaaa……Baltimore is flooding and its not cause of a hurricane.

  37. upyoursnfu says: Sep 6, 2011 9:51 AM

    Thing is….Steelers talk and back it up. Ravens talk and well, we all have seen the results. How did that bounty on Ward turn out, T-Fizzle?

  38. blackqbwhiterb says: Sep 6, 2011 9:53 AM

    Steelers own the Ravens, at least for now, but here’s the thing- the Steelers defense is getting OLD, and will start to lack the speed it needs. Of course, Ray Lewis is like 80 in football years and Ed Reed is half a cripple half the time, so….

  39. vincentbojackson says: Sep 6, 2011 9:54 AM

    Talking is what the little brother does when the more successful big brother is getting all the attention.

    The Ravens are clearly the Steelers little brother.

  40. burntorangehorn says: Sep 6, 2011 9:58 AM

    I despise both fanbases, despite liking a few players on each of these teams, especially the great Casey Hampton.

    I’ll be at this one in person, and it should be a fun game to watch, even with obnoxious Ravens fans all around and a (lamentably) Steelers-supporting babe sitting next to me.

  41. opbilly says: Sep 6, 2011 10:00 AM

    shut up u fat pig!!! i havent heard one raven say one thing this week. they have been all business. it may not show up this week because we have problems with our oline but its what happens in the end. our coaching has held us back the last several years but it seems like we’re getting some really good players which hopefully will overcome the bad coaching. worry about yourselves and stop trying to start something. if not for an idiot who drops a touchdown in buffalo in overtime or the old quarterback fumbles into the endzone and three dolphins fall on the ball and come out with it but a referee who grew up in pittsburgh cant tell on replay which dolphin actually recovers the ball, you would have been home watching.

  42. st33lersnation says: Sep 6, 2011 10:02 AM

    both teams talk too much. just play football.

  44. steeltownpride says: Sep 6, 2011 10:06 AM

    Ballinmore … Steelers got 3 turnovers and scored 17 points .

    Ravens got 2 turnovers and turned them into 14 points .

    Lets do simple math here . Steelers scored 31 minus the 17 points of TO’s = 14

    Ravens scored 24 points minus the 14 points they got on TO’s and they scored 10

    So there you have it . 14>10 . Steelers win .

  45. 3octaveFart says: Sep 6, 2011 10:06 AM

    What? No new stupid t-shirt from Suggs this year?

  46. ottograham says: Sep 6, 2011 10:07 AM

    Fans constantly remark the lack of calls against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Lets be honest here, the Steelers may get a break from time to time as does every other team. It usually breaks even by thetime the game is said and done. Can you as a fan get off the notion of the refs calls? Or will you use it as a crutch for your team that just cant compete? The AFC divisional game was the Ravens for the taking last season and they did what they normally do… choke. Or is it the Pittsburgh Steelers are just that much better of a team?

    At least they got to the Super Bowl – three times in the last 6 years.

    When was the last time the Ravens went?
    oh yeah… 2001.

    When the Stlrs and the Ratbirds play, I root for chaos, such chaos that both teams are so demoralized by the end of the game that it affects their play the following week(s).

    I root for the refs to make bad calls.

    I root for freak occurrences.

    I root for overtime.

    I root for turnovers and sloppy play.

    I root for ejections and fines.

    Go chaos!

    “They don’t like us. I think they don’t like us a lot more than we don’t like them. I think they have to talk themselves into it, kind of, know what I mean?”

    That sounds to be *exactly* what Casey Hampton is doing with this statement- trying to talk himself into it.

    It’s funny when people are clueless that they are right in the middle of doing exactly what they’re accusing someone else of doing. Ha.

    Ravens are a 9 win team this season! Lee Evans hurt, Boldin not as fast as he use to be, new db’s startign this season, Flacco is average at best, Ray Lewis is older and will egt exposed more than ever, Reed has a bad neck, while Steelers WR are faster than ever, Ben 7 straight wins over Balt, Steelers 7 straight season opening wins.. Pitt 27 Ravens 13…

  53. jimmymcnultysbottleofjameson says: Sep 6, 2011 10:36 AM

    Hampton do you realize that through these comments you are now the one doing the talking? I believe one Ryan Clark (a corner only few know outside of western PA) is your teammate and wouldn’t know what a muzzle was if it hit him in the crotch. Seriously, has anyone heard the Ravens talking trash? I’ve barely heard a peep. Regardless, it should be a great game as usual. Purple Sunday!

    We talk to make ourselves tough?

    Hampton, Harrison, Woodley, Ward, Polamalu, the other safety that sucks? All they’ve done this offseason is talk. Talk about us, Flacco, and how hard they think they hit.

    Ravens talking? Zero. They initiate these talk no matter how stupid the statements are.

    See, we ARE tough. We do hit HARD. They play dirty, but they don’t hit hard as we do.

    Also, they always need ref help to beat us.

    They don’t beat us. They escape with the few wins they get. We beat their behinds though and will this season along with their rapist QB.

  62. ahostiletakeover says: Sep 6, 2011 11:19 AM

    As a Ravens fan, the Ravens players do usually yap a lot when the Steelers are their opponent. However, I have read nor heard them “yapping” about Sunday’s game, they seem to beo for once be wholly focused on disproving everything that has been said.

    So I’m not sure why Hampton felt the need to come out and say this at a point when they’re actually not doing. Obviously, it looks like he is trying to get a rise out of them since they haven’t been. Maybe he is worried that they are focused on winning for once and not coughing up leads.

  63. carnboys says: Sep 6, 2011 11:27 AM

    Most of steelers fans are Bandwagon fans. When the steelers it old and lose the bandwagon fans will like some other team. Maybe the Green Bay Packers.

    I don’t even know why this is a story anymore! This happens everytime these two team play one another! It isn’t news anymore! In the end, it doesn’t matter who has the bigger mouth and who makes the biggest threats verbally! All that matters is the score at the end of the game, and that usually favors the Steelers. Everyone knows that the Steelers are the better team, since 6 Lombardi trophies don’t lie! However, being a Steelers fan my entire life, I love this rivalry! These are the two best defenses in the NFL and for good reason! Once again, this season won’t disappoint when these two teams face one another twice! I would not be the least bit surprised if one of these two teams represents the AFC in the Super Bowl. Looking forward to a hard hitting, defensive game this weekend! GO STEELERS!!!!!

  66. 52crabcakes says: Sep 6, 2011 11:53 AM

  67. steelerfannomatterwhat says: Sep 6, 2011 11:57 AM

    Steeler fans are bandwagon fans? Are you kidding me? Steelers have been successful overall for the last 40 years. So is that a 40 year bandwagon. How is it that tens of thousands of bandwagon fans appear in other teams’ stadiums week after week after week? Is that a bandwagon? You say that Steeler fans are bandwagon fans but then say that theu suck and are terrible and play dirty, blah blah blah. What kind of bandwagon is that to follow? Ravens fans are actually Browns fans if you think about it. Just a different city and different uniforms.
    In any event, this game is way too early to have a meaning or an impact on the standings just like last year’s game in Pitt. Ravens won that but still lost the division and the AFC Championship. I see the Ravens winning this one 23-13 but what are the Ravens going to do in the playoffs?

  68. steelerfannomatterwhat says: Sep 6, 2011 12:01 PM

    Ravens have actually been quiet so far but it is only Monday folks. Rice, Suggs and Reed ran their mouth in the offseason in case Ravens fans forget. Just cannot accept the fact that the Ravens were built to mirror the Steelers in almost every way since their exodus from Cleveland but have not been able to dominate the Steelers……….yet. So go ahead and puch Ben in the face, rip off his facemask, twist his leg when he is down and kick him on the ground. Unlike whining Raven fans, he will get up and come back for more.

    You guys hit hard, but who did you hit hard? It was MaGhee laying there like a newborn. Let us not forget Wards hits(plural) on Ed Reed. Reed plays D and Ward has more hits on him. If Clark sucks, what is Zibikowski? We have been to the big game more than you in your little time of existence.

  75. steelerfannomatterwhat says: Sep 6, 2011 12:46 PM

    Why are Ravens fans or players bent out of shape by what an out of shape 30-something player in his declining years is saying? Clark is just an idiot, period. That guy only runs his mouth because he is a player association representative and is only kept around because his incompetence on the field is evened out by Polamalu’s super ability. If Woodley talks, I would run away even if I was a 600 pound Sumo wrestler. Woodley is a beast.

  76. steelerfannomatterwhat says: Sep 6, 2011 12:52 PM

    I guarantee you that there is no team that the Steelers players and coaches respect (or hate) more than the Ravens. This article just like all others is taken out of context. It is us fans and haters that ruin everything.

  77. steelerfannomatterwhat says: Sep 6, 2011 1:00 PM

    And ENOUGH with the ref bullcrap. It was the ref’s fault that Flacco was hit by Polamalu and fumbled in Baltimore. It was the refs’s fault that Brown caught a long bomb with his shoulder in the playoff game. It is always the refs fault. Except when Ngata punched Ben in the face or Suggs tried to rip off Ben’s head without a flag.

    Man this year’s Steelers is the most delusional team I have ever witnessed. They keep bringing up the Ravens and how they talk to much, but their the ones who are talking. For every 1 Ravens player that has said something their has be 4 Steelers players talking about how they dominate the Ravens or how their not tough and how they are an after thought and how its not rivaly if 1 team always loses.

    Saying they’re delusional is to tame of a description, its more like they are going senile, but I guess thats something to be expected of people so advanced in years.

    I feel like the steelers are like that girl in high school who says they hate drama but yet she’s the one always starting drama. Woodley, Clark, Hampton, ward, Harrison, have all been talking crap this offseason about the ravens but you hardly ever hear the ravens players talk but yet the ravens are always in the wrong

    @burntorangehorn …

    You are going to the Steelers/Ravens game??? Life is sooo not fair. LOL Oh well … at least you have good taste in women :D

    Let’s get this straight. We all know Suggs or Lewis are usually the ones running their mouths about beating Pittsburgh once and for all. But we all know that the Ravens aren’t talking this offseason because they have nothing more to say. I’m pretty sure they gave all their hopes for ever beating Pittsburgh after that pathetic collapse in the divisional game. The Steelers literally handed them the game in the first half. Then Joe Flacco, his WRs and Webb do their best to give everything back.

    Can a Stooler fan post a link anyhere that shows any Ravens player talking smack this year?

    Every year the Raven usually talk some smack & it’s nice to see they can’t even wear it in a t shirt either like the last few years cause now the Steelers finaly shut them up! After years of getting the beat down they are humbled hahahahaha! Now all is Steelers Fans hear is whaaaa they talkin smack whaaaa refs whaaaa the NFL! Ravens fans are so pathetic

    Personally I’m enjoying the smack talk by the players and fans on both sides. The fact is though this might be the last year the Stoolers and the Ratbirds compete for the afc north title. The Browns are the team that they should be worrying about. The Browns have built a team to be reckonded with, and will dominate fthe division for the next decade, so continue to live in the past because that is all you will have. GO Browns.

    The Ravens cant really talk smack this year after getting it handed to them twice last year. They had their chances and blew it. The steelers pretty much own them. The ravens are gonna TRY and get revenge. I dont see it. Steelers 24-13. The “WOODS” gonna have a big game.

    All the steelers have done this off season is talk and talk and talk.

    They act like they won the super bowl

    Steeler Nation dominates this league. Don’t worry after this season (7th) we’ll leave this sorry league and start our own.

    ……………..

    I’m a huge Steelers fan & have been my entire life, but I have to admit I’m sick and tired of reading posts by this dude! Seriously, guy, get a life! It’s people like you who give us TRUE Steelers fans a bad name!!!

    Casey Hampton DOES realize only he and four other Steelers have given their unsolicited opinions on the Ravens in the past few months, right? Ravens haven’t said anything all summer.

    Big, fat, and not knowing the definition of the word “irony.” Priceless.

  92. BTC says: Sep 7, 2011 1:18 AM

    And last I checked, Green Bay pulled a Ben Roethlisberger on the Steelers in the Super Bowl, if you catch my drift.
