Either way, we get Ray back soon so he can start killing it on the field.
Maybe LeBeau changed things up that Harbaugh didn't like. Everyone knows the key to beating the Ravens is stopping Rice. Flacco isn't going to do it. So maybe there were some defensive schemes going on to stop Rice.

Maybe you should take another look at the post you responded to...the Steelers were not stopping Rice.

Mehhh, Rice was doing better than most backs do against the Steelers. He was doing ok, nothing game breaking. The majority of his yards gained were from his one long run. Throw that out and Rice really didn't do too much.
Going back to the game @Pittsburgh and one might see why they may have focused less on Rice. He was shutdown.

No they weren't for the first 3 quarters, but the 4th quarter, maybe Lebeau changed it up. Really doesn't make a difference, Harbaugh screwed the pooch and it cost the Ravens. I am just trying to come up with a theory as to why he would not use Rice in the 4th quarter. Thinking Flacco was going to win with his arm was as dumb as not using Rice.

Exactly, he had 78 yards total rushing and I think the TD run was 34 yards, take that away and he had only 44 yards total rushing.

Wow...it's really not rocket science.

You take away a "particular" run from any RB that has a good game and.....you can say they didn't do much.

Smirk and Cam failed. It was stupid to not give Rice the ball.
