    I bet you the announcers won't say a single thing about the Steelers running up the score on the Ravens. But when the Pats do it, it suddenly becomes a morally unconscionable act!!

    And listen to Kornheiser laying on the baloney about how Pittsburgh plays the game the way it is supposed to be played and how people LIKE the Steelers. How Steelers fans are portable unlike teams in NY and... Boston! Wow, biased much?? That is BS, I've seen plenty of overbearing and obnoxious Steelers fans. Where this guy gets the idea that the Steelers are LIKABLE, I have no idea. Maybe they are liked by the fans because they are playing the game in Pittsburgh?? Duh!

    Re: Pittsburgh beating Baltimore 35-7 at the half

    you're right the announcers won't say anything about them running up the score
    The announcers never said anything like that for any of the Pats blowout games.

    Basically what im saying is, its not the announcers who say this stuff, its the media guys on every sports show because its a hot topic.

    Re: Pittsburgh beating Baltimore 35-7 at the half

    But this game is the PERFECT example of the DOUBLE STANDARD the media applies to the Patriots. If the Patriots score too little - then their wins are lucky. If the Patriots score too much - then they are running up the score and are "evil". But when another team scores gobs of points like the Rams, or the Colts, or today the Steelers - they are "playing the game the way it is supposed to be played." What kind of BS crap is that? Does anybody see what I'm getting at here?

    Re: Pittsburgh beating Baltimore 35-7 at the half

    It's actually almost a perfect analogy to the Mia-NE game... they were winning by 28, inside 2:00 of first half, driving deep, and throwing the ball into the end zone to take a 35 point lead.

    The only difference is where the Pats brought that 35 point lead into the locker room, here tonight the Ravens managed a drive of their own to cut it to 28 at the break.

    if pittburgh goes for it on 4th down with 4 minutes left, I'd agree with you.

    I actually don't have any problem with anything a team does in the 1st half. It is when you hit the 4th quarter and are throwing long to your #1 that I have a problem with.

    Re: Pittsburgh beating Baltimore 35-7 at the half

    Not to mention that Big Ben just threw another 40 yard bomb with the Steelers already up 35-7. Only difference is that he seemed to get dinged up after throwing that pass. How is what the Steelers doing ANY different from what the Pats did to the Dolphins? The Steelers are still doing their darn best to score more points, and that includes throwing the ball deep.

    And what do you know the Steelers bring Roethlisberger back into the game in the 4th quarter after Batch pretty much stumbled over his own toes. Wow eerily similar to Pats vs Dolphins where Brady went back in. I'm sure that the ESPN and other tv mediots will say nothing about this either!

    Yeah and they scored exactly 3 points in the 2nd half and called the dogs off, the Pats would have won 70-7, not saying this to be a smart ass either because I have said quite a few times on here that I don't give a crap about the Pats running it up, thats there style and if people don't like it just play some defense and stop them..:D

    Steelers fans are likable? Jesus, I prefer Cowboys fans to them, and that's really ******* saying something.

    Also, everyone please direct your attention to the Ravens. THIS is why it's better to let a McGinest, Milloy, Law, etc. type go early rather than too late. You spend too long trying to hold onto glory years of the past and you end up with the Ravens.

    I dont think people will accuse a team of running up the score in the first half. Now, it's the forth quarter I think it's different. I don't see these two situations as the same.

    Mr. Spock, from reading your posts I have deduced it would be illogical to believe you are really a Pats fan.:nono:

    Re: Pittsburgh beating Baltimore 35-7 at the half

    I know... I mean, seriously... the only difference between the Pats and Steelers is the Patriots succeeded in scoring again when they threw it deep, but Pittsburgh threw it deep with a 28+ point lead and weren't able to convert.

    That's just not true... they didn't "call the dogs off"... they kept trying to score and were still throwing deep. The only difference is they failed in their attempts to score whereas the Pats were successful.
