What a turn of events in that third quarter. No other game immediately comes to mind in which a team looked so in control in the first half and so hopelessly incompetent in the second. All Ben Roethlisberger does is win football games, especially when the Baltimore Ravens are on the other end.

T. J. Houshmandzadeh has got to make that catch on fourth down though. It hit him right in the damn chest!

I can't breath, I can't breath...is it over? Oh my God, I can't go through this next week. I can't believe the Packers/Falcons will be this good, but we will see.

I know that the biggest disappointments of the year are usually reserved for teams that were expected to make the playoffs and didn't but the Ravens offense has to be the most disappointing unit in football. So many people thought this was Flacco's breakout year and that he had a ton of weapons but in the end Pittsburgh's young talent (plus Hines) looks like the better unit for the next few years.

We'll see what happens tonight but I wouldn't be surprised if Ryan puts the Ryan vs. Flacco argument from two years ago to rest.

Can we now remove Flacco from the elite or approaching elite conversation? Along with other bad decisions and turnovers, that was one of the worst executions of a two-minute drill I have ever seen.

A lot of mistakes made by both teams. I think the Steelers lose in the AFC Championship Game to whoever wins tomorrow's NE/NYJ game.

Flacco was IN the "elite or approaching elite conversation"? The Ravens' D has been pulling his ass out of the fire all season, it was going to burn them eventually.

And how TJ lost that ball in the 4th, I'll never know. Until the replay ran, I thought we got away with offensive pass interference.

Mike Lombardi had a good line about Baltimore recently on Simmons' podcast....the Ravens are like a restaurant that tries to appeal to everyone by cooking several different dishes, rather than just focusing on a few specialty dishes or just one kind of cuisine. As a result, their offense can't really do any one thing really well, and thus they ultimately come up short.

A receiver corps of Mason/TJ/Boldin is great in a historical context, but really need to find a WR on the upswing of his career. Also, Ladarius Webb needs to be cut.

I can't even handle the fact that this happened.

That Steeler who made two late hits into tackle piles twice needs to work laundry duty for the rest of the postseason. That's just dumb. That's, like, Cowboy dumb.

Well no players come to mind yet but as for head coaches Bill Cowher (Steelers) is in the last year of his contract and the Post Gazette had an article mentioning his wife and kids were moving to North Carolina. Cowher has yet to ask for extension.
