Ryan Clark is either not very bright or he's just trying to get under the skin of Ravens players and fans. He recently said:
"People try to make this game between the Ravens and the Steelers like so much of a rivalry, of a fight, you know," Clark told KDKA-FM in Pittsburgh. "You can say it's a rivalry if you like, but for something to be a rivalry, I think both teams have to win equally. The hate between the fans doesn't make it a rivalry. Teams have to win equally, and that really hasn't been the case in our situation."
Yes, it's true that the Steelers have a better record against the Ravens. That record soars to dominate levels when Ben Roethlisberger is playing. But to say that the Ravens/Steelers is not a rivalry is completely outlandish.
Most of the games are decided in the 4th quarter, usually by a single play. Both teams were 12-4 last year and 9-7 the year before. They've played 3 times in 2 of the last 3 seasons. At least one of the games between these two teams is a nationally televised game.
But yes, it would be nice if the Ravens could level out the record some more, but that doesn't mean that this isn't a rivalry.
It's the best damn rivalry going on in the NFL right now, and will be for the foreseeable future.
So sorry, Ryan. You're absolutely wrong.
