Steelers need help after stunning loss

Related News/Archive

BALTIMORE — Getting beaten by the archrival Ravens was bad enough. Losing control of their playoff destiny made things even worse for the Steelers.

Pittsburgh needs some help to get to the postseason after falling to Baltimore for the second time this season.

"We didn't handle the business in the stadium today, so we're left to look around at other stadiums," coach Mike Tomlin said after Pittsburgh's three-game winning streak was halted. "Such is life this time of year when you don't do what you're supposed to do."

The Steelers fell a game behind the Chiefs, who clinched a spot, and Jets in the AFC wild card race.

Making his seventh career start — the first with Baltimore — Ryan Mallett went 28 for 41 for a career-high 274 yards and a touchdown. Signed by the Ravens on Dec. 15, he was the fourth quarterback to start for Baltimore in six weeks.

"Getting the start was awesome," he said. "Getting a win was even better."

The last thing these kids need is to be failed by bureaucracy, too, and yet that's exactly what appears to be happening because of a needlessly rigid funding formula set up by the Florida Legislature. Child welfare agencies …

    The Legislature may have had good intentions when it came up with the funding plan, but it’s obvious that there is some unfairness built into it. The funding may be complicated, but the goal is simple: Making sure every child in need gets the help he or she needs.
