Well, this is the week. After the beating Baltimore gave to the Steelers when the Ravens smoked the Steelers 35-7 in the season opener the opportunity for redemption is finally here. That loss to the Ravens kick-started a 2-2 opening month of the season. Since then Steelers have ripped off 4 straight wins and are sitting at 6-2.
Such was the ferocity of the Baltimore Beatdown with the chop blocking, interceptions, Terrell Suggs sacks, Ray Lewis antics and all, it really paves the way for a great Sunday night game. To be sure, the Steelers will remember.
Oh i’m sure the players will pretty much toe the line and be careful in what they say in public. Probably even try to downplay the revenge factor. But it’s coming, make no mistake aboout it.
To quote Doc Holliday from the movie “Tombstone”….
“Oh, make no mistake. It’s not revenge he’s after. It’s a reckoning.”
That’s what this sunday’s game is, a reckoning.
