Off-season acquisitions and adjustments with his coaches and players has made his job so far nothing short of sensational. Clock management (big improvement). Now he has the best special teams. Think Championship

I hope this "something special" will bring SB to our beloved city. To be honest I am sick and tired of just reaching playoff and it's about the time!! and honestly how fortunate we are, some teams just dream about reaching playoff's.

The Ravens are (and I mean this in the most positive way possible) the Rocky Balboa's of the NFL. They have been beat up, have lost star players, have been declared dead by the media and they keep fighting back and winning. Anyone who has been watching closely can see they are coming together at just the right time and are as deep as the ocean. Ray's 4th and 29 should throw a cold chill into any opposing team. You just can't game plan for that kind of heart.

I agree the team’s mettle has been tested collectively and individually. Let’s not forget T. Smith’s personal tragedy and how he has continued to play at a high level. Defensively the team has had to adjust to losing Pagano, JJ, Redding, Zbikowski, TSizzle, Webb, Lewis and adding young guys like Kruger, Upshaw, Thompson, Brown and others. That’s a lot of adjusting if you ask me.

Special teams has been a vast improvement over last year!!

Offensively we have struggled to find an identity only because someone doesn’t like what it’s been and they’ve been trying to change it. We’re a smash-mouth run first offense. High flying deep passing attack is not our style.
This team IS special and definitely hardened from adversity and coming up short (last year’s AFC Championship) so I’m not surprised we’re 9-2 and have done it the hard ugly way. Now we need to start taking care of business decisively so that we can get some swag going. Go undefeated in the division and at home again and the swag to win it all will be there.

Special will be an understatement.

Yea, the media only seems to be able to write and say horrible things about Flacco and our team. And the fan comments are even worse. Instead of saying we win through adversity or always find a way to win we are somehow always lucky and not as good as our record. It's so frustrating. Almost any other team pulls out a tough win and they are praised. I'm pretty hopeful about this year. I doubt we will get any respect even if we beat the Manning brothers which I think we will. It is often the team that is bashed all season for finding a way to win when it matters that can go all the way. This is our year through adversity we will win!

It's just another article by someone who doesn't actually watch games, just looks at stat lines at the end of the game and sees a QB who doesn't always put up flashy numbers. Forget the fact that we're 9-2 with a defense that is way off its normal offensive-destroying self. We have a QB that just can't be trusted to win games. :eyes: Not sure where he comes to that conclusion, but I don't particularly care either.

We're 9-2, we have 3 home games remaining (4 if you count DC), and then we go out to face a sure to be packed for the offseason Bengals team.

http://www.nfl.com/n...-trusted...This i just ridiculous they claim Joe has done ABSOLUTELY nothing for this team and says he has failed. At this point I'm speechless I'm done with NFL.com. The excuse backthen was he could only win because of defense. Well that defense isn't that great anymore (recently they have been). Talk about being a hypocrite. Joe Flacco when these idiots ask you questions such as ranking yourself in the top 5 don't bother responding. The media and especially NFL.com is a trap. I've seen about 10 articles bashing Joe in the past week. Somehow 30/51 completions, 355yds, a TD and no INT's=Average according this idiot.

Here is what is going on with the Ravens
1. we are not turning the ball over and beating ourselves!
2. we have enough stars to make timely plays... even when we have been outplayed
3. We are battle hardened! We dont panic...been there
4. we have elevated expectations (good job Harbs)
5. we trust eachother

WE seem to have "EMBRACED THE GRIND"

With the record we have is that new news ? We are very fortunate to be where we are right now and i am very happy for our record but it would take no genius to see our offensive numbers are very low on the road and except for the last 2 weeks we had one of the worst defenses. We all know this and we all know that it is a very special season we are having and i hope it continues right into a Super Bowl Shot. Let's get Ed that ring he deserves. The guy has given us everything he has and then some.

We'll find out soon enough; but I have a feeling that that San Diego win is going to catapult this team to new heights. Their D is shaping up, and the O finally started to move on the road...albeit, in the 4th qtr...but they came alive nonetheless.

If they come out and obliterate poopsberg on Sunday; it will force everyone to see that this team is a REAL threat. (I already believe they are...although I had my doubts early on)

As far as I'm concerned the Ravens get no respect,not on ESPN,NFL channels or Media highlights,It bothers me in a way that one week the offense is up and another week it's down but the facts remains that the team is solid,when the offense is down the defense is up and etc.The Ravens can only be better with the company it keeps and the teams it plays,The AFC North is in my opinion the toughest division in NFL Football, we'll finally find out soon enough at the end of the season or maybe the Super Bowl weather we deserve to hang with the BIG BOYS

We create a lot of our own problems by keeping Oher on the left side when Mckinnie should be there and Osemele should be the left guard. Yanda and Oher should round out the other side. Oher and Jah Reid are not starting players in the NFL in their present positions. Oher was a revolving door and Reid saw the game from his back. I know Harbaugh has issues with Mckinnie, but its time to do what's best for the team.

I think if people saw Joe in one of these pass heavy ATL type offenses they would finally leave him alone. But instead of fixing it that way, Joe will do it with a SB win.
