Former Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed was in attendance Thursday night for 26-6 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers at M&T Bank Stadium and in an interview with the Baltimore Sun the future Hall of Famer gave a quick assessment of the visiting team.
“You know as well as I do that Pittsburgh’s not very good,” Reed said. “Pittsburgh will get better as the season goes by the way they always do, as will the Ravens. It’s hard to say what it all means, but I do know Pittsburgh’s not very good.”
It’s hard to argue with Reed’s brief analysis of the Steelers after the first two games and especially based on the last six quarters of football that they have played. While the Ravens should be commended for their win Thursday night, it’s important to remember that there is still a lot of football left to be played in the 2014 season as well.
The Ravens only scored 16 points in their regular season opening loss to the Cincinnati Bengals and they now must play their third straight divisional game Sunday on the road against the Cleveland Browns.
“This next game could be a tough one,” Reed said. “Cleveland actually has a pretty decent team.”
The Steelers will get their rematch against the Ravens at home in Week 9.
