Fox's pre-game show just briefly discussed the Ravens-Steelers game. And what did you expect?
Terry Bradshaw: "The Ravens I don't think have a prayer."
Michael Strahan: Baltimore is fortunate to be in this position. ... When is the luck of Joe Flacco going to run out?"
Howie Long: "This is a street fight. ... This is Steelers-Raiders from the '70s."
Jimmy Johnson did discount any talk of the Ravens being disadvantaged by a tougher schedule. "Baltimore is going to lose because they're tired?" Johnson said. "Are you kidding me? These are 25-year-old men."
At the end of the show, everyone picked the Steelers to win.
Fox host Curt Menefee said the network couldn't present a live report from Pittsburgh because the cold had caused technical problems. However, the taped presentation included a snippet from Mayor Sheila Dixon, who said: "Baltimore is known for our defense."
Given her legal issues, she must hope so.
