    Well, here it comes... AFC Championship game between the Baltimore Ravens playing against the Pittsburgh Steelers... Who is going to make it to the Superbowl? :thinking:

    I feel like the Steelers will take this one.

    The Ravens got pretty beat up Sat. playing the Titans. I think the Steelers will win also. I really don't know who I want to win, maybe the Ravens. But, I don't think it will happen.

    Of course, my track record for picking the winners is pretty abysmal. This is probably good news for the Ravens.

    IMO this game is very evenly matched. The only thing that gives the edge to the Steelers is having a vet at qb, that has actually been to the big game and won it all.

    Who knows though... This postseason has been crazy!

    Ravens!!! I hope so anyway, simply because I detest the Steelers!!

    Would be nice to see the rookie beat out the vet also!

    Around week 13 I said to my Dad that the Steelers would win the Superbowl, Im going to stick to that.


    Flaco will throw 1 interception, it will be crucial and lose the game.....

    Right before the playoffs my Aunt asked me who was going to make it. She is a huge Manning fan, loves both of them.

    I told her Steelers vs. Eagles. She wasn't too pleased with that.

    To be honest, I would never have predicted the Cardinals to make it this far. It wasn't much of a stretch to pick them to beat the Falcons, but I didn't see them beating Carolina. Great job Delhomme...

    It's a pick em honestly. I wouldn't be surprised if either won. both can run the ball, both have defensive game breakers all over the field. Pitt seems like they have the edge, but these 2 are rivals & it's hard to beat the same team 3 times in a season.

    Rothlisberger has shown a tendency to hold the ball too long in an effort to get the ball down field, many of those throws resulting in picks or sacks. i expect Baltimore to get at least 2 more extra possesions than they should get b/c of this with ed reed lurking & that will even out whatever offensive edge Pitt may have.

    The only question with Balitmore is whether Flacco can keep playing error free football in the playoffs.....my guess is no.

    Pittsburgh 17

    Baltimore 9

    These are two great teams and there is a great deal of HATRED between the two. This game wioll be a slugfest and I personally can't wait. I've been saying the Steelers since mid-season and I'll stick with them.

    Steelers = :trophy:X 5...I'm hoping that soon it'll be :trophy:X 6 because the three way tie between them, the 49ers and that Team from upstate...annoys me. Frisco made it to five first...let the Steelers get six first.

    The one game over the weekend that ended according to script was Chargers @ Steelers.
    Maybe not so good for the Ravens ?

    Being raised in AFC North Country (but having lived down here long enough to not have to hate the Ravens or Steelers (Ravens being the Browns' Titans) - I am really excited for this match up.

    I think these are very similar teams with talent, type of play, etc. I only hope the winner isn't so banged up they're a cupcake in the SB.

    After our week 1 matchup, I made a bet that the Steelers would win the superbowl. That being said, I live about 2 hours south of Baltimore, so I don't know who I want to win this game!

    Just like pulling for the underdog, I guess. lol I have a feeling the rookie is gonna get taught a very HARD lesson in Pittsburg! Two nasty defenses duking it out. We'll see which QB falls first. :d:
