Ravens are nobody’s “little brothers”

Some Steelers fans (and even some Steelers players themselves) somehow think the Ravens are their “little brothers.” I’m sorry, but how do you figure that? Is it the fact that the Ravens have made the playoffs more times than Pitt over the last 6 years (five times to Pittsburgh’s four)?

Is it the fact that the Ravens are tied with Pittsburgh and New England for the most wins in the NFL since 2008 (56)?

I don’t get it. How can a team that is top 5 in winning categories be a little brother?

Since 1998, the Ravens have 147 wins (5th most in the NFL).

Since 2000, the Ravens are tied for 3rd in playoff wins wih 10.

Since 2000, the Ravens have the most playoff road wins in the NFL with seven.

They are also ahead of the Steelers in home wins since 1999.

At least the Ravens didn’t go 40 straight years without making the playoffs like Pittsburgh did. You know, its funny. If you talk to any Steeler fan, they think the NFL started in the 70?s. They somehow block out the 1930s-60?s because their team was trash.

They even go as far as saying the Packers’ NFL championships before the merger don’t count. Yes because we all know if the Steelers had won a championship before the merger they wouldn’t recognize it. Thanks, I needed the laugh.

Now we can hear Merril Hodge on ESPN talk about how these fans are best NFL fans because they have, “perspective”. LOL ok.

In week 1 against the Broncos, a Steeler fan poured beer on a Bronco fan because the Steelers lost (a scene which was caught on camera and posted ondeadspin.com). How’s that for perspective?

Anytime someone claims a fan base to be the best (especially Steeler fans) you know not to listen.

And you especially know not to listen when anyone uses the term “little brother” in the same sentence as “Ravens.”
