It took until Friday, but now it really does feel like Steelers-Ravens week after Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith took to Twitter Friday afternoon to tweet a few lyrics from the song Renegade. An hour later Smith took his foot off the gas a little by tweeting, “That place goes nuts when they play that song….gotta love big games in great football environments”
Oh momma I\’m in fear for my life from the long arm of the law

The fun started earlier in the day when Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Keenan Lewis told the Baltimore Sun that Mike Wallace is faster than Smith and that he is not worried about being able to cover the Ravens receiver because of that.
While some of the faces have changed over the years, the pre game chirping is something that you can still count on from time to time. The last few years it seems to have been much more tamer as both teams have taken the respect angle more often than not. Instead of Hines Ward and Terrell Suggs trading compliments, we now have two young players in Lewis and Smith taken veiled shots.
Is the game Sunday night setting up to be one that we will remember for years to come, or will the Ravens easily take care of the Steelers sans Ben Roethlisberger like most of the mainstream media seem to believe will happen?
