I almost wish that Webb wasn;t hurt because it seems to me that the Steelers look at an opponent and see that the opponent may be missing a player or may not be that good, and they don't play as well. That said, with Webb out and the Ravens scrounging the waiver wire for a corner that can hang with Mike Wallace is a good sign.

I don't want to sound overconfident, but I don't think we necessarily need to have Troy back for the game. The Ravens live and die by Rice's legs, and Flacco isn't Aaron Rodgers. I'd rather rest Troy this game and the Miami game and have his fresh in case we get into the playoffs. Of course if he's 100%, by all means, play him.

p.s. I hate the fucking Ravens.

Ditto that.

As awful as this season has been at times, I'm just glad that this game means something. I am going to make a prediction that 43 suits up this week, even at 75 percent. Sure, Flacco will never be confused with Aaron Rodgers, but Ray Rice torched us last time in the run and on screen receptions.

Carter, Clark, and the rest of the clowns in the seconday got beat to the corner by Ryan Grant (not Peterson, not Chris Johnson) so Rice has got to be licking his chops.

Help us Troy Polamalu, you're our only hope.

How many corners have the Ravens lost this season?

Well, you know what this means.  When we're having success running, BA pulls the plug on RM.  When the opposing team can't stop the pass, BA runs it up the gut.

I call 60% running up the gut this week.  "Rashaaaaaaard Mendenhall, one yard gain!"  Punt.

C'mon, man, you gotta admit.

It's brilliant! Since everyone -- including the Ravens -- knows that Balty is susceptible to the pass, what better way to confuse them than to come out running it right at Ngata?

They'll be absolutely perplexed as we run for short gain after short gain, that they'll worry we are just setting up a big play-action pass...then on 3rd and 9, when BA calls another inside run, they'll be so shocked they'll give up 6 yards! It's BRILLIANT. I mean, its a GUARANTEED 6 yard gain!

I'm betting the same 3 play sequence for the first 5 offensive series. Then when we are behind by, say 24 points or so, BA will have Ben come out gunning. By then, the Ravens will KNOW we have to pass, but they don't have enough good DB's in their nickel and dime packages to really defend it. So, Arians will actually FORCE the Ravens'  to put 5 or 6 DB's on the field by PURPOSEFULLY mismanaging the entire first half.

The Ravens defense then will worry that they are playing into our hands, especially when Mike Wallace streaks down the sideline, wide open.  Ben will pump fake -- HARD, mind you -- then this well designed play will have Ben turn and hand the ball to Mewelde Moore, who will run up the middle for a quick 2 or 3 yards! Brilliant!

Man, that's probably how it plays out.  Maybe Tomlin won't let Arians down on the sideline this week.
