Whoever said winning isn’t everything must have never won while their backs were against the wall and frustrated fans were on the edge of their seats.
It’s 2 days later and Ravens fans are still smiling because on October 1st, 2015, the Baltimore Ravens defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers for their 1st win of the season after starting 0-3 for the first time in franchise history.
It’s a big deal to us.
Now to some that doesn’t sound like much of anything and probably warrants a reaction like, “Ok… so?” But when you’re a Ravens fan, it means that much more.
Clearly, this season began with high hopes and after starting 0-3, those hopes quickly turned into doubt. Yes, there are gaping holes and voids among the personnel and play-calling that needs to be addressed and assessed over the Ravens 10-day break. But this win over the Steelers, in Pittsburgh, to get the 1st win of the season, has restored hope, optimism, and confidence in Ravens Nation.
Here’s what Ravens Nation had to say:
The #Ravens‘ last two wins have come against the Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field. Even at 1-3, Baltimore fans will enjoy that fact.

It’s not important how you start as long as you finish strong. #RavensNation

I don’t care what you call it, but a win like this one can’t do anything other than boost confidence and light a fire within. The 1st quarter of the season is done, and there are 12 more games to go to have yet another chance to see January Joe & The Flock chase the Ravens 3rd Lombardi.
One game at a time, One week at a time.
P.S., Ravens Haters hate when we win and are feeling good about our boys. So get equipped with 5 comebacks when arguing with a Ravens Hater in the next article.
