The Ravens’ season statistics aren’t typical of a 9-2 team. Their opponents have gained 271 more yards, generated 27 more first downs and averaged over five more minutes of ball possession per ga...

I don't call it luck, I call it football. Luck didn't convert 4th and 29, Ray Rice, Boldin and Flacco did that and so on.

Well, Im sure all of us as Ravens fans know that but, Apparently we are the worst 9-2 team ever .. The only way we can prove we are Legit is to beat the Broncos & Giants which i know we can do.

& Also, Ray is a really great player but, I feel like with his age and now coming off this injury, he is actually going to make our defense worse. He is definitely an emotional leader, but .. I dont know if he can really help our defense

Had NFL officials been out there in Phillie there's a good chance we'd be 10-1.

This is true, although I think the Dallas game came pretty close to luck. But on the other side of the coin, we lost the Eagle's game which we probably should have won due to outplaying them and having little league refs officiating. Some wins this year may be called ugly, but we definitely outplayed most opponents.

The 2012 Ravens have proven to be the true cardiac kids. Seems as though we play to just to be in it at the mid-point of the 4th quarter before focusing on the final kill shot. I'm not saying it's a bad thing necessarily, especially this year with all the good fortune we've had. Makes for a stressful 3.5 hrs though each weekend for Ravens Nation... haha.

Go Ravens! Win it any way you can!

I remember all the ups and downs we endured during the Super Bowl run in 2000!

This, is how we do it! I firmly believe we're beginning to reach our peak, especially on defense as we get closer!

Couldn't come at a better time in the season as Houston seems to be slipping back to earth! They are like the 1999 Titans we beat!

So you're saying Ellerbie and McClain are better than Ray? Ellerbe has definitely stepped up this season, but he still makes a lot of mistakes. He still has trouble with coverage and misses tackles. McClain has been pretty solid for us, but I think what we're getting out of McClain right now is the best we're going to get. He wil always just be that solid #2 guy. Ray is still our best ILB. The only thing Ellerbe has on Ray is speed. Ellerbe is better in Blitz packages, but that's about it. Ray tackles better than both Ellerbe and McClain, reads defenses better, has better instinct, has better knowledge, and is by far the better leader.

@bigdaddycompton- he has all the instincts i know but, his performance hasnt beenn all that good, He doesnt cover well, and didnt really helped our Run defense. Ray has the Legacy. But i feel his name is bigger than his play

When he comes back and our defense doesnt perform as well as they have (AKA: @Chargers last year) Youll notice we are good as is.

That%u2019s just sound, solid football.
Hit hard.
Don%u2019t give anything away.
Let your defense keep you in it until something good happens.

Good things happen to great teams ...

The Baltimore Ravens are a GREAT TEAM!!!

When we went on our SuperBowl run in 2000, and we played the Raiders in Oakland for the AFC Championship, and Dilfer hit Shannon Sharpe on a slant from DEEP in our own territory, and Sharpe took it the distance... I had a very distinct feeling that this MUST be our year. It wasn't feeling lucky, it was more like confidence in the destiny of the team that year.

Well I don't know about you all, but I had a similar feeling when we moved the chains on that 4th and 29 in San Diego last week. #RavensNation

That San Diego game last year was a blowout because Rivers was dropping back and completing passes down field to his receivers at will. That didn't have anything to do with Ray. After that game, the defense was very good again. Ray Lewis was still leading this team in tackles by a lot before he got hurt. He will still make this defense better.
