Remember way back when the hot topics here were Redzone Redman and Ra'shon Harris? (Wait, I'm being told we are still arguing those topics.) Back then the professional yakkers were opining that the main reason the Steelers couldn't repeat was because of the bullseye on their uniform, Steelers would be everybody's homecoming game.
Well, after losing a couple three point games, those same professional yakkers currently rank the Steelers anywhere from 12th to 17th. Seems like we've fallen under the radar.
And, beginning this week, a strange anomaly in the schedule shows up. The Ravens have Minn. We get Minn the following week. Then Ravens get BYE. We follow with our BYE. Then Ravens get Denver. We get Denver following week. Ravens get Cincy. We get Cincy following week. We get to draft behind Baltimore four weeks in a row.
Don't think any of these teams are going to look past the Ravens to the BIG GAME against Steelers.
We take care of business this week against Browns, still under the radar. Ravens soften up our next three opponents, or at least keep them honest, and at least for a few weeks, Steelers are just another game on the schedule.
That's a good thing.
