Opportunity Lost

Another galling thing about the Steelers' loss to San Diego on Sunday is that the Ravens and Bengals also lost. The Ravens are reeling and, conceivably, coming back to the pack. In fact, the Ravens not only lost on Sunday, they panicked and fired embattled offensive coordinator Cam Cameron on Monday -- with three games left in the season! A first-place team with a 9-4 record!

Obviously, there is discord in Baltimore, and people there have been concerned about the Ravens' offense for quite a while. In fact, just after Charlie Batch led the Steelers to that improbable win in Baltimore on Dec. 2, at least one writer in Baltimore pointed out the very real concern that the Ravens could easily lose to the Redskins, Giants and Bengals -- three of their last four games.  And, if that were to happen, the Steelers could actually beat them out for the division crown -- if the Steelers won out.  That's not going to happen, of course.

Coulda, woulda, shoulda.
