Charlie Batch is only 37? I though he was like 50 something, Bradshaws back-up or something.

Now that long curley hair dude is back, Flacco needs to spy this guy where every he goes.

IT'S A BLACK AND YELLOW BBQ! SOMEBODY PLEASE FIRE UP THE GRILL! THE RAVENS ARE HUNGRY!

GO RAVENS!

If Berger play, his first snap send a 7-8 man blitz at him. Scare the "profanity deleted" out of him, someone should land whether sack or QB knockdown.

If they start rookie Kelvin Beachum at RT they should slide Suggs over there every now and then.
Who is Batche's backup? They gonna dust Bradshaw off?

So it appears Ngata is 100%...I don't see him mentioned at all.

Unless I missed it...?

I was really hoping to see McPhee on the field, along with Ellerbe. But we will continue to cope as we've done all year.

Batch was 12-of-21 for 141 yards and an interception 2 years ago .. and we won 17-14 in the final seconds.

I think that's all you need to know. A blow out would be great, but I'll settle for a win.

Of course, that was at Heinz ... the offense has to play better and the road excuse is gone so ... prove your worth offense, score 20 and we take home a win.

If Dickson doesn%u2019t suit up, Dennis Pitta would get the start ...

Isn't Pitta our starter anyhow? If not, he sure seems like he is.

Staying healthy in a physical sport like football is just as important as athletic ability, a great arm or knowledge of the game. So much for Roethlisberger being a top QB. Laughable.

im not worried about this game, as good as the steelers defense is, our offense is unstoppable at home. we may have struggle vs the texans D on the road but if we played them here our offense would eat them up. joe flacco and ray rice are about ro light up the steelers D this sunday! ravens win 30-3

we need to get to batch early and the offense must make a statement early and not get in a rut

Sami, the Steelers picked up Brian Hoyer a couple of weeks ago when Leftwich went down, although they may as well use Bradshaw for all the good Hoyer could do.

A whole lot of injured players on both teams.

I hope the Ravens score fast, early, and often forcing the Stealers to put the game in Batch's hands that way we can really take advantage of that banged up Stealer line.

The reiceivers need to work on helping flacco, by getting off blocks and the o-line needs to give flacco time also open up holes for rice

I don't like Ben, and I hate the Steelers. And yes, he gets injured a LOT.

But the dude is a freaking winner, flat out. There's no way you can deny that. I hate to admit, be he's easliy a "top" QB. I've never seen any QB play that hard, despite injuries to just about every part of his body, and still pull out wins.

Off the field...definitely questionable. On the field, the dude is a warrior. That's a fact.

When I first read your post. I thought it said: "If they start rookie Kelvin Bacon at RT"...
