AA's Prediction:

I know the Steelers are banged up offensively, and the Ravens defense is looking like their defenses of old, buuuuuuut I just don't see a rookie QB taking Baltimore to a hostile Heinz Field and coming out victorious. The Ravens will keep it close but a late score by Hines Ward will seal it for Pittsburgh.

Steelers 24 - Ravens 13

FYI- I put this post up a bit early because I'm going to be making an appearance on 1560 The Game around 5pm EST with friends of the site, Sean and John. We'll be talking College Football and Baseball, so click on the link below to listen if you've got a second....

1560 The Game: Listen


FYI....ESPN Radio just announced that Barack Obama is on Mike and Mike on Thursday at 7:10 am Eastern. In their release, they also made sure to note that McCain was on September 18th.

"Protecting Big Ben" should be a pretty easy segment. Just step aside and watch him get destroyed. It's what they're doing now anyway.

Sigh... another night of Tony Kornholer wreaking the MNF game. There's a reason I created this blog:

Notice when they went to commercial Berman said Emmitt will be talking about his former team and the whole TO thing. They should stop hiring former Cowboys because it seems they are still apart of the team.
