Even if the Steelers are playing their backups, the Ravens are still playing their third-stringers.
No Willie Parker, no problem for the Steelers. Ben Roethlisberger might toss five touchdown passes - again.
I say the Ravens give Erik Bedard a shot at the quarterback job, and if that doesn't take, hold tryouts at a carnival dunking booth.
Even without Willie Parker, the Steelers will have too much - and too much at stake - for a team that is down to second- and third-stringers.
M&T; Bank Stadium becomes Heinz Field South.
The Steelers won't be trying very hard, but they won't have to.
These guys, the Orioles, the Maryland men's basketball team ... when does the final season of The Wire start?
I'm hoping there's a better finish for Mike Flynn and Jonathan Ogden than this prediction.
