The Ravens take on the Steelers Thursday night, and they’ll do so trying to avoid going 0-2 to start the season. Two divisional losses to open the 2014 NFL campaign would be a devastating hole, and they’ll have to go through a balanced Pittsburgh offense to do so. “They like to run the ball and have done so pretty well so far,” said Colony.
Four days after opening the season by losing to a division foe at home, the Baltimore Ravens face their most-hated rival in a pivotal game Thursday night.
NFL Hall Of Fame Quarterback And CBS Sports Color Commentator Phil Simms Joined The Scott Garceau Show
Scott asked Phil if he believes that the Ravens made the correct move in cutting Ray Rice. “What could they have done, hey can only go by the information that has been given to them. I don’t know what to say.”
Jim Colony of Pittsburgh’s 93.7 The Fan joins Scott and Jeremy to summarize the Pittsburgh Steelers’ preseason thus far, as well as their outlook for the regular season. Though the Steelers have a solid reputation […]
On the AFC North side, Andy Dalton and the Bengals will probably fall behind with the Steelers or the Ravens being most likely to win the division. Both the Ravens and the Steelers finished 8-8 last year and are ready to hit the play offs again, and win. The Steelers have potentially filled the spot of Emmanuel Sanders and his name goes by Markus Wheaton. Wide Receiver Lance Moore scored ten touchdowns last year at the University of Toledo. Wilson says that Lance is “smart and crafty.” Moore is probably one a good pick up for the Steelers, something that they need.
“I think the Ravens will definitely contend for a wild card spot in the AFC, but I don’t think the team is good enough to win the division,” said Kostos. “I know the Cincinnati Bengals made an impression last year, but I actually think the Steelers are winning the division.”
“I think the Steelers are flat out better than Baltimore, and I think the Bengals are slightly better as well,” Kostos claimed. “That leaves the Ravens on the outside looking in.”
Some information on the Ravens, Hernandez spoke to the guys mainly about the Smiths, Torrey and Steve. According to Hernandez, “Steve Smith will probably not put up the numbers as he did in Carolina.” Steve will most likely be used to take some attention off of Torrey, don’t rule him out though! Steve Smith will most likely do some nice things this season.
What is the scoop with, of course, Johnny Manziel? Seems like everyone is pretty opinionated about the quarterback. Is there an upside for Manziel? Manziel made everyone look throughout his college career. One thing that really made people look was in the Chik-Fil-A Bowl. Felder noticed “NFL throws” from Manziel, especially in that bowl. Manziel is good but can he get better? Is he an NFL starter? Potientially, yeah Manziel could be a starter.
Another talented played, Brandon Flowers, was cut from the Chiefs. It is highly doubtful that he will unemployed for long. Apparently two teams, the Ravens and the Vikings are both interested in him. He will be back, somewhere just not with the Chiefs.
Is it because every team in the city is equally loved and supported, with sellouts stretching back decades, through good seasons and bad?
Neither Mike Tomlin nor the Pittsburgh Steelers could stand in the way of the Baltimore Ravens’ late-season playoff push. The defending Super Bowl champions are back at .500 and in position to reach the postseason for a sixth consecutive year after overcoming Tomlin’s sideline stroll and Pittsburgh’s frantic comeback bid in a 22-20 victory on Thanksgiving night.
Ravens linebacker Elvis Dumervil left Thursday night’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the second quarter with a sprained left ankle, but returned to action in the second half.
