Something special happening here

32 posts in this topic

First off just Wow to one of the best football games i have ever watched, great win guys.

I am starting to think this team we get to root for is having a very special season. How many 9-2 teams go under the radar and find new ways to win week after week. Something special is happening this season and i am hoping it ends us in the Superbowl.

Every Team that makes it to the big game always have a lot of breaks fall their way and wins come from a variety of ways and that is us this year.

Let's hope. But I must say, something felt different about this game.

We win this game, and bc PIT lost, we are basically locks to win the division

I love that the Ravens are completely under the radar. Everyone wrote us off after losing Ray, Webb, and the beatdown in Houston.

I think there is a good chance we get a #2 seed and win it all this year. This game just showed how much heart this team has and that is what will make the difference.

really? that was one of the best football games you've ever watched? the ravens played like garbage on offense. they were lucky the chargers blew a 4th and freaking 29 to even get a chance to win the game. I'm glad we won, but if the ravens carry these offense woes into the playoffs, it's going to be an early exit. If you neg me, you're pretty much delusional thinking there aren't some serious issues on offense

Well I blame this offensive woes on Cam . All of a sudden he changes up the calling in the 4th quarter to short passing
Game and no huddle and we immediately start to succeed .

What took him so friggin long? And throw some more slants in the middle to Torrey . He's damn hard to cover in the middle of the field.

Agree.
Been a very fun year. We said the same stuff about it being special last year. Here's to the Vince Lombardi trophy!

Man, get out of here, son. Yeah we played rough. Yeah our O-Line couldve given Joe a lot better protection and Cam could've called a better game, but that's every week. I do wanna get rid of Cam, but this team found a way to win and our D truly is back. I thought last week against Pitt was just a fluke, but this game they beasted and Art Jones and BA stepped up big time.

Every year, we see Super Bowl Champions come from nowhere. They are never the prettiest; they simply peak at the right time while winning just enough games to stay alive before that peak.

This could be that squad. We may see that peak coming soon.

I'm glad you are happy we won the game. That comeback win is not something that can just be written off. It took an incredible amount of effort from both individuals and the team as a whole. Coming together to pull out a win after being in a bad spot for various circumstances is laudable.

That doesnt mean ignore the problems, but there is a time and a place to address them. I think what the OP was trying to do here is take all the positives and focus on that going forward. You kind of came in and rained on the parade.

This is what excited me about this team right now.
Harbaugh said in the post game [paraphrase] " At half time, no one was pointing fingers. No one was putting the blame on any one else "

This is a unified TEAM. This is what it takes to win football games.

I am SOOOO PUMPED.

Thats part of the game, finding ways to win. chargers have an under rated defense and you cant take credit away from rice on that 4th down play, that was simply amazing and could me the Ravens play of the year. Part of being a playoff or superbowl contender is find ways to win in games, even if its ugly, a win is a win. Remember our game against houston in the playoffs, that was ugly, but we won. I agree we need to be more consistent but that second half looked good i thought.

where is Joe's credit in this win brah? sure, he played poorly in the 1st half and part of the 3rd quarter but in the 4th? the man was killing it! what about Torrey's awesome sideline catch? no credit there? and Ray Rice's check-down and crazy run effort to gain 30 yards on a 4th down & 29? so that was all on the chargers poor defense? no credit to Ray's ability to avoid tacklers and out run defenders and to stretch out for extra yards for the 1st down? you can't steal this AWESOME come from behind win....on the road....from the Ravens. GO RAVENS!

If you could give wins to individual playersthis would be a big one in Rice's column! Without his determination and some awesome running this would have been a big "L" for the Ravens. The comeback sparked by Rice, and good play from the defense were definitely highlights. Of course, we had to sit through some of the most painful, nonsensical playcalling, and execution you could imagine for 50 minutes. Thank God somebody judo chopped Cam to the neck and took over the playcalling for the last 10 minutes, and OT.

i hope we end in SB, but our D is playing lights out right now, the offense needs to start playing 4 quarter games we will beat anyone.

The most impressive part of the win was how far the offense had to go to put up points. The TD drive was 80 yards, plus 15 from going backwards on a penalty. The next FG drive was a good 40 yards. That's 135 yards in the final 8 minutes.

Then in OT, the Ravens had two drives, each from their own 11. And they managed to give Tucker a short field goal try by going 70 yards.

The O has struggled at times, but when they put it on Flacco's shoulders, they seem to ignite.

In Ozzie We Trust, huh, guys. Men like Corey graham, jameel McClain , Bernard pollard , danelle ellerbee, and last but not least Cary Williams have been undrafted free agent acquisitions or bargain free agents. Thanks to these guys we have withstood the loss of ray Lewis(though he has slown down) , webby(Cary is playing good enough and so is graham) and smith . Not to mention guys like Kruger and Arthur jones were crucial to withstanding the loss of Johnson and redding. Guys the ravens don't rebuild ,They RELOAD. Raven D and home games equals Super Bowl. On to next week.

Meh, I'm good with either. As long as they won. Results are the final judge.

I mentioned this earlier in the season... Hate to do comparisons ... but we win games the same way Pittsburgh would on their SuperBowl winning years with Tomlin... Just saying.. we've done a great job to embrace the grind!

No doubt, we're really becoming a mentally tough, clutch football team.
