Just like 2001...Steelers camp is ruffled after a Ravens Superbowl

Fanbase? Yes.. Coaching staff? NOPE.
This. That is what originally caught my eye when I was reading the sports sites earlier and saw his quote. This is something that fans say .... even players. But coaches? Really? Especially an old school coach. Doesn't come off well.

As easy as it is to rip Lebeau (and now Antonio Brown for agreeing) for what he said, it isn't false either. Our team did get healthy in time and their team did not and really, that was the big difference in their 2012 seasons. So while it does come across as sour grapes to us, I don't have a problem with what their stance is here. Lord knows our fanbase has pulled similar schticks in the past concerning our rivals' success.
It isn't true. They only needed to win those games they lost at the end of the season. It wasn't defense. It wasn't injuries. It was Big Ben and two very big late game interceptions which handed them two losses. So yeah, I'm going to rip LaBeau and Brown for making stuff up. Keep it real.

If they want to play this game why don't we ask them how healthy the Ravens were in 08 during the AFCCG. Suggs played with essentially 1 arm as did Mason. Our starting cbs I think were Frank Walker and Fabian Washington or Evans Oglesby. Still hung with them until the Flacco pick 6. Who cares, Cams gone and the team can only get better offensively after winning the SB. Smooth sailing right now.
but 08 got the hype machine rolling for flacco at a local level. People were not fully sold on flacco...but I was happy he was better than boller and had a mean deep ball! we saw hope and change in 08 :-) and flacco sure did deliver!!!! 08 was about the future and knowing we would make it back to the AFCCG and win it one day and maybe get a superbowl win in flaccos career.
