I am getting used to the normal socialistic, secular, nonmoral ethic of The Sun, but Susan Reimer's column ("Old rules no longer apply in Roethlisberger case," April 19) takes the cake, candles and utensils. If my sons (and I have two in their 20s) tried to force themselves on a drunk woman, I would be outraged, and it would take a long time for me to get over it, even if they were drunk (yet another rationalization by the nonmoral left to not blame themselves for bad behavior)

RAVENS PASSING GAME: As much as he's struggled against the Cincinnati Bengals, Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco has flourished in recent years against the Steelers, throwing eight touchdown passes and just one interception in his past seven games against them. Flacco threw the ball 62 times Sunday. That's certainly not the recipe offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak wants to rely on. Steve Smith and Dennis Pitta both had big games against the Bengals, but Ravens receivers dropped eight passes.

I clicked onto the Ravens website this morning and saw “ Flacco vs. Big Ben ” splashed across my screen. With the NFL draft now behind us and not much going on in the next couple of months, it looks like we are now in the compare-and-contrast portion of the offseason. We in the media have to keep you clicking somehow. But I'm going to partake in the conversation, sparked by a blog post written by my former colleague Jamison Hensley , because you can now make a compelling argument for both AFC North quarterbacks now that Joe Flacco has a Lombardi Trophy, one his fingerprints are all over after he tossed 11 touchdowns in the playoffs.

Between the jaw-rattling, blind-side hits and the head-butts to the kidneys, Ben Roethlisberger has learned to appreciate the hard-hitting rivalry between the Ravens and his Pittsburgh Steelers, the one that has defined the black-and-blue AFC North. Last season, though, when the two rivals and playoff hopefuls collided twice in three weeks, Roethlisberger was at the last place he wanted to be - standing safely on the sideline with battered ribs and his arm in a sling. For the Ravens, the AFC North was not won in those games.

No one has more wins in his first three seasons as an NFL quarterback than Joe Flacco . But when the Ravens quarterback faces Pittsburgh, all he hears is how he's winless against Steelers quarterbackBen Roethlisberger. Sunday's season opener gives Flacco another chance to break his 0-6 record against Roethlisberger. "I don't ever want to go out into a game and feel like I have something to prove personally," Flacco said. "I am going to go out there and give our team the best chance that we can to win. It's our job as a team to go out there and play up to our abilities and win the game.

What doesn't look questionable about the Pittsburgh Steelers" injury-complicated quarterback situation is coach Bill Cowher's decision to keep not one, but two proven backups behind Ben Roethlisberger. Cowher said yesterday that he won't know until later in the week whether Roethlisberger can play in Sunday's game in Baltimore. Roethlisberger, who is listed as questionable, has missed two games since having knee surgery Nov. 3. If he can't play - and the Steelers are hopeful he can - then Tommy Maddox will be their third starting QB in four games.

DETROIT -- In a setting fit for a coronation, Ben Roethlisberger will come to pass today at Ford Field. His success will determine whether Bill Cowher finally wins the big one, Jerome Bettis goes out on top and the Pittsburgh Steelers' quarterback prodigy ascends to a prominent place in NFL lore. Tonight's Super Bowl, replete with Roman numerals and the Rolling Stones, will serve as a launch point for Roethlisberger's Steelers or Matt Hasselbeck's Seattle Seahawks. The question is which one?

They share uncommon rookie success, powerful right arms and a proclivity for staying cool in the most intense moments. Joe Flacco has taken the January journey that made Ben Roethlisberger famous as a rookie in 2004, turning heads and defenses along the way. Heading into Sunday's AFC championship game in Pittsburgh, some have even portrayed Flacco, the Ravens' quarterbacking prodigy, as the second coming of Roethlisberger, the pulse of the Steelers' offense...

LATROBE, Pa. - Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has a mantra memorized for when he's asked about the obvious. When you go 13-0 in the regular season as a rookie, what do you do for an encore? Roethlisberger's unprecedented year, when he helped the Steelers run the regular-season table after a Week 2 loss to the Ravens, has seemingly robbed him of all the normal benchmarks any other maturing quarterback would expect to hit over the course of, say, his first three years.

PITTSBURGH -- At the intersection of Locust and Marion streets yesterday, halfway up a steep hill that overlooks both the heart of downtown and the twists and turns of the Monongahela River, a small group of Pittsburgh Steelers fans gathered outside Mercy Hospital and prayed. It was a way to find comfort and to avoid feeling helpless, and after a day that was equal parts confusing, frustrating, agonizing and surreal for many, those prayers made it a little bit easier to deal with the harsh reality many Steelers fans were facing.

PITTSBURGH -- Terrell Suggs has hammered Ben Roethlisberger many times over the past decade. In fact, no player has sacked Roethlisberger more often than Suggs, who has toppled Big Ben 15.5 times during his career. Yet, despite the punishing hits that Suggs has given him over the years, Roethlisberger stood in the Pittsburgh Steelers locker room Wednesday and tossed verbal bouquets in the rush linebacker's direction. “I respect him. I respect the way he play the game,” Roethlisberger said.

On Wednesday, Baltimore Sun blogger and reporter Matt Vensel wrote about how it is now a close call when debating which quarterback is the AFC North's best : the Ravens' Joe Flacco or the Pittsburgh Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger. To accompany the post, we included a poll for readers to vote on which quarterback they would rather have. Flacco jumped out to an early lead, but Roethlisberger roared ahead, perhaps because an official fan Facebook page encouraged Steelers fans to stuff the ballot box. At one point, Roethlisberger had 95 percent of the votes . Ravens fans struck back, and as of lunch time on Thursday, Flacco had a narrow lead with 51 percent of more than 20,000 votes.

No one would confuse Andrew Luck with the Washington Redskins' Robert Griffin III, the Carolina Panthers' Cam Newton or the Seattle Seahawks' Russell Wilson - three quarterbacks who finished the regular season at the top of the NFL at their position in rushing. But that doesn't mean that the Indianapolis Colts rookie can't take off when he wants to or has to. Luck ranks second in the AFC and eighth in the league in rushing, compiling 255 yards. His five rushing touchdowns put him in a third-place tie with the San Francisco 49ers' Colin Kaepernick behind Newton (eight)

I don't see how the Pittsburgh Steelers can beat the Ravens without quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. In fact, I think one of head coach Mike Tomlin's biggest mistakes in the last couple of seasons has been holding on to Charlie Batch and Byron Leftwich as backup quarterbacks. Basically, because of his style of play, you can assume Roethlisberger will miss a couple of games every season because of injuries. So, instead of having two ancient statues as backups, why not have a more mobile quarterback?

The Pittsburgh Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger was listed as limited in Wednesday's practice, which was interpreted as a boost in the arm for the Steelers who have dropped two straight games without their franchise quarterback. But a report in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review described Roethlisberger's workout as very brief, his light throwing ending even before some of his teammates reached the practice field. Does this mean that Pittsburgh will err on the side of caution and shelve Roethlisberger for at least another week to give his dislocated ribs and sprained right throwing shoulder more time to heal?

PITTSBURGH-- --The Ravens won the big head game yesterday. They are lodged deep inside Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger's head, and he can't get them out. They scarred him mentally four weeks ago with a team-record nine sacks, and he was still feeling the effects yesterday in the Ravens' 31-7 win. The Ravens sacked Roethlisberger five times yesterday, and hurried him five others. Pittsburgh coach Bill Cowher didn't do Roethlisberger any favors by having him throw from the pocket instead of rolling him out. Poor guy. Roethlisberger was awful.

The Ravens have not budged from their contention that no matter which Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback lines up under center Sunday, they are preparing to defend the offense, not the quarterback. The identity of that quarterback is still unknown, but Ben Roethlisberger is scheduled to increase his workload at Wednesday's practice. That doesn't mean that Roethlisberger has been cleared to play after suffering dislocated ribs and a sprained right throwing shoulder in the Steelers' 16-13 overtime win against the Kansas City Chiefs on Nov. 12. In fact, coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday that Charlie Batch is still the starter.

The Steelers lost here to a really bad Cleveland Browns team on a frigid December Thursday night in 2009. It was their fifth consecutive defeat and left them with a 6-7 record. Nose tackle Casey Hampton put their playoff chances into perspective. "This [bleep's] a wrap. " It's fair to wonder if the Steelers are at that point again after another loss here Sunday to a really bad Browns team. Hampton was right in '09. The Steelers missed the playoffs despite winning their final three games.
