PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) – Afternoon radio host Scott Garceau from 105.7 The Fan in Baltimore joined the Fan Morning Show to preview Saturday’s Ravens-Steelers playoff game.
Garceau said fans in Baltimore are much more confident heading into the game after the win in Kansas City. They are so confident some fans are starting to book Super Bowl flights.
Terrell Suggs appeared at a news conference earlier in the week with a t-shirt that read “Hey Pittsburgh” and showed an illustration of a raven making an inappropriate gesture. Garceau said that is a “typical Suggs deal” and he “just loves the spotlight.”
Garceau expects a good game from quarterback Joe Flacco even though the Steelers defense has only allowed a total of 1,004 rushing yards this season and leads the league with 48 sacks.
The Ravens defense is getting older and Garceau thinks the Steelers offense can take advantage in some match-ups. He says the Steelers could take advantage of Ray Lewis in the passing game who is in his 15th season.
Ray Rice was the last running back to gain more than 100 yards against the Steelers defense and Garceau expects the Ravens to continue to feed the ball to him. Though it might not be in a hand off, Garceau said expect the Ravens to try and complete short passes to him that could end up being big plays.
