I have a feeling things go differently this time around and a statement is made. These clowns need to be put back in their place and no better time to do it than Christmas evening. If the defense plays like they did in the second half of the Bengals game, and the offense doesn't stall in the red zone, its a win.

These division games never seem to reflect records. I'm really worried about this game and even the Browns game.

Agree big time. Another loss to them at home would be devastating....for this season and also going forward.

It will become a "mental" thing carried over to next season.

There shouldn't be an Option B for them at this point.

They know what's on the line, and they should recognize what needs to be done by their own accord.

Be done with the non-sense type games and run amuck on these fools.

I have far more faith in this team at home, so I hope they can focus on the W that is long overdue against this team.

Let's put some Steel City coal in the stockings of all those Ratbird fans out there!

Steelers will need to run the table to win it all. It is that simple.

I'm worried about our D-Line. they're going to try to run through our patchwork D-line and then get Flacco going late in the game to try to seal it.

It'll be interesting to see if Tuitt can be ready. I am encouraged by our second half D from the Cincy game. If that intensity shows up we have a good shot. Ben should play well at home also.

Injury updates from the Tomlin Presser:

  • Tuitt-Knee sprain. In Rehab. Day to day. Participation will be guide.
  • Matthews-ankle injury. Day to day. Participation will be guide.
  • Green-concussion. In protocol, no update.
  • DeWill- ready to go and expected to play and have impact.
  • DHB-physically ready, but not football ready. As always, participation will be guide.
  • Thomas-limited. Participation will be guide.

Doubt Green will play given his history. That hurts when you consider how he becomes a big part of the offense lately.

Tuitt hopefully can play for obvious reason.

I hope DHB or Thomas could play. The special team coverage is terrible and their comeback would help a lot.

Steelers hopeful of having Tuitt in lineup against Ravens

Head coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday that Tuitt, who has taken on a larger role, moving all over the defensive line since the loss of Heyward, has a chance to play against the Ravens. He had an MRI Monday and it revealed no structural damage.

“We will watch him participate over the course of the week and see what that participation looks like,” said Tomlin. “The position that he plays gives him an opportunity, probably it would be less likely so if he was a wide receiver or cornerback. We will give him an opportunity to show his overall readiness.”

I'd like to think the second half D against the Bengals was a statement and we can continue with it against the Ravens. The best statement: The "NO ONE WANTS TO PLAY US" statement would be total domination in this game. That's all I want for Christmas.

I just want a low penalty, no trick plays when you are moving the football down the field at will, Ben not throwing deep on 3rd and 3 all the time, move the damn chains, could you please tackle that guy, kind of game. Is that to much to ask?

You know who will need to step up this week ? The offensive line....BIG TIME!

Last time they could not get any push in the run game and it seemed they could not protect Ben well enough in the pocket. I have maintained all season that AV is the weakest link on the line, but he has been playing really well the past few weeks. The Steelers defense cant give up the big play, but the O line needs to keep Ben clean and drive block for #26 and #34 in the run game.

This is no doubt a playoff game and my nerves are responding accordingly. Christmas day at home, it is time to put the rats losing streak at an end and end their season. Not that it really matters, but we're getting picked to win by most I've seen so far, although Dulac of course is picking the Ravens at Post Gazette.

Most players would call this bulletin board material, and in this case it would be for the ratbirds (if the talking heads are picking the Steelers). However, at this point in the season if you need bulletin board material to get up for this game, then you don't belong on the field.

The Steelers shouldn't need to be the underdog to get up for the fight, and they should be able to focus on the prize and task at hand.

In the words of Larry The Cable Guy, "Git 'r Done"
