The worst football game ever? - Joe Posnanski
"There are, officially, six rivalries in the NFL." And he doesn't list Ravens-Steelers as one of them. Yet another reasons why I think Pos is more hack than talent. What do you guys see in his writing that I'm missing? -duck

Excuse me, duck, Joe Posnanski is NOT a hack, and saying so is pretty much a bannable offense. First of all, he says in the article that he's not including modern rivalries. Considering the Ravens have existed since 1996, that seem to fit the bill. Second of all, what I see in his writing is his brilliance. For examples, see:  here, here, and here. And those are just a few of many. -Stacey
