If you could only watch one game this weekend, it's got to be the Ravens at the Steelers.

Real rivalry in Pitt

The Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens play football as it's meant to be played, and their third meeting of the season should be another classic.

Look to the front offices

The supposed superiority of the AFC in the 2010 season is based more than anything on the fact that many of the most talented NFC teams have allowed themselves to be run into the ground with terrible decision-making processes.

Vulnerabilities abound

This type of competitive balance keeps more teams -- and their fans -- believing a Super Bowl run is a possibility. And that's exactly what the NFL wants to see.

Bring on the Bird Bowl

The Falcons and Ravens have made all the right offseason moves to fly higher in 2010-11.

Ravens rise to the top

With a combination of defense and improving offenses, the Baltimore Ravens and Green Bay Packers would make a tantalizing Super Bowl XLV matchup in Big D.

Ravens to rule

The suddenly offensively charged Baltimore Ravens have a great shot at keep the New Orleans Saints from repeating as Super Bowl champions in 2011.

Where will T.O. end up?

Ravens locked and loaded

Bolstered by several top free agent signings and another stellar draft class, the Baltimore Ravens have no excuse for not challenging for the AFC championship in 2010.

Ravens, Dolphins make big upgrades

The Baltimore Ravens and Miami Dolphins filled holes on both sides of the ball and provided young quarterbacks with significant upgrades in the passing game through the draft and free agency.

NFC West beefs up

The Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers both took significant strides through free agent acquisitions and the draft make themselves division title contenders once again in the NFC West.

Once a bolt, always a bolt

Like Padre great Tony Gwynn, LaDainian Tomlinson should have ended his career with the Chargers. Now he must make sacrifices if he wishes to join a Super Bowl contender.

Wait and see

Donte' Stallworth is more than capable of helping the Ravens, but his impact will be determined by the expectations the organization and fans place upon him.

By Chris Richardson | February 18, 2010; 11:33 AM ET | Comments (0)

Brilliant!

The price is right for a receiver who still has the ability to help a Ravens team on the rise.

By Jason Maloni | February 18, 2010; 09:45 AM ET | Comments (0)

Right place for new start

Given Ozzie Newsome's track record, I'll give the Ravens the benefit of the doubt and assume that the Stallworth signing will help the Ravens get to the next level.

By Doug Farrar | February 18, 2010; 08:12 AM ET | Comments (0)

Baltimore a perfect fit

The city of Baltimore, more so than its team, is the perfect place for Donte' Stallworth.

By Michael Kun | February 18, 2010; 12:10 AM ET | Comments (0)

Potentially cursed?

The Ravens will settle for good, not great. In fact, they'll be very happy if he even approaches Mason.

Does Stallworth help or hurt?

Nevermore pressure

Indy might be under the most pressure to win Saturday, but other teams are feeling it, too.

Ravens on the wire

Though the work is far from finished, Baltimore does have the inside track to a postseason berth.

Bubble's already burst

The playoff picture appears to be pretty well set, but I'm wrong more often than I'm right. So, look for change.

Bash of the Titans?

My heart tells me that the answer to this question is the Tennessee Titans but my head says Packers and Ravens.

The bad luck Bengals

If franchises are somewhat branded by an identity, then the Bengals' is of a team perennially beset by misfortune and miscalculation.

Don't count on Cards

The only team currently leading their division played in last season's Super Bowl and, coincidentally, is the only team that won't play for the Vince Lombardi Trophy.

Brown and Out

Cleveland is well on its way to being an 0-16 team.

Speak up Players

I wish athletes would occasionally forget about what it might cost them in the bank account and offer up a well thought out, informed opinion, like Arthur Ashe did.

Lots to Say, Not Much Play

It's refreshing to encounter an NFL player that actually has something to say. Too bad Ayanbadejo mostly rides the bench.

Gay Marriage vs. Cross

Didn't Mike Singletary's rather large cross, that he wore during the 49ers game, violate NFL uniform policy?

Watch What You Say

Say your piece, but do so humbly, respectfully, and with the knowledge that the words may live longer than you'd like.

Winning Gay Fans

Brendon Ayanbadejo of the Ravens is a new gay fan favorite for his pro-gay marriage stance (his nipple ring doesn't hurt).

By Jim Buzinski | September 25, 2009; 06:11 AM ET | Comments (1)

Hardly Dangerous Speech

What's strange in this whole affair is the fact that an NFL player's support for gay marriage should be in any way controversial.

Free Speech Isn't Cliche

Our country's foundation is the free exchange of ideas. Just because more people may hear those ideas when they come from athletes, does not mean athletes should be censored.

Fans Don't Deserve Vote

Fans are, by their very nature, biased and ill-informed, sometimes even face painted.

Separating Great and Good

Most of our heroes are not larger than life. They are human. And, like us all, they are subject to the worst human failings.

By Liz Clarke | July 9, 2009; 11:27 AM ET | Comments (4)

Athlete Idolatry

Maybe Air Jordan or Air McNair are false idols and we need to be more critical of who deserves the title of hero.

By Dr. Matthew Prowler | July 8, 2009; 05:26 PM ET | Comments (1)

A Family Tragedy

Steve McNair was required to be role model for his four sons. Instead, he lied to his family every time he snuck off to be with this young woman, with his actions and presumably his words.

By Tracee Hamilton | July 8, 2009; 03:33 PM ET | Comments (4)

Some Role Models Cheat

McNair fit into the category of a role model, and although he was unfaithful, that does not erase his hard work, his accomplishments, his generosity, all the good things about him.

By Roman Oben | July 8, 2009; 02:23 PM ET | Comments (25)

Who Needs a Real Hero?

Do I care if Steve McNair, Muhammad Ali or Babe Ruth has an affair? Of course not. What does monogamy have to do with admiration?

A Hero on the Field

Forget his private life, admire his endurance, his hard work, his rugged character on the field.

Affirming the Best in McNair

There was much to admire about Steve McNair, and it would be myopic to overlook his extensive contributions to society because of his martial indiscretion.

By Gene Wang | July 8, 2009; 11:59 AM ET | Comments (2)

What Is a Hero?

We make deals with our heroes and our role models all the time, because sainted perfection is so very difficult to find.

By Doug Farrar | July 8, 2009; 06:19 AM ET | Comments (1)

Not My Hero

This was a tragic situation, but one that Steve McNair seemed to bring upon himself.

By Dan Levy | July 8, 2009; 05:06 AM ET | Comments (7)

More to McNair

Was he perfect? No, but he was absolutely a hero.

By Jimmy Morris | July 8, 2009; 03:53 AM ET | Comments (2)

Heroes Are Humans

The flaws of our role models don't diminish their heroism but rather prove their humanity.

By Peter Schaffer | July 8, 2009; 03:45 AM ET | Comments (3)

Mobile Revolution

McNair's success popularized the scrambling quarterback and opened the door for such players as Donovan McNabb and Michael Vick.

By Emil Steiner | July 6, 2009; 11:40 AM ET | Comments (1)

Tough as They Come

Nothing endears a player more to teammates than persistence through pain, and by that standard, McNair practically had no peer.

By Gene Wang | July 5, 2009; 12:00 PM ET | Comments (2)

A Good Man, Gone Too Soon

What I remember most about Steve McNair was his all-consuming competitiveness.

Former Coach Remembers

All of Them

The NFL is a copycat league. Let the Wildcat serve as Exhibit A. Exhibit B may well be rookies starting at quarterback.

Cleveland Doesn't Rock

January 18th Winner: OZPUNK

Perhaps T.O. will show up in Arizona and tearfully apologize to Andy and Donovan and ask to be traded back to Philly?

Cards Win? That'd Be Surprising

In a postseason full of the unexpected, the most shocking scenario would be Arizona beating Philadelphia in the NFC championship game.

The Year of Surprise

Perhaps, the biggest surprise now would be no surprise at all.

Throwing Surprise Party

With two sixth seeds and the Cardinals still alive, at this point, nothing would surprise me.

Steelers' Slight Edge

You couldn't put a thin piece of paper between the NFL's two best defenses, but I think that the Steelers' leaders have the slight edge.

Big Dawgs to Pound
