The great Bill Parcells was right when he said: 'You are what your record says you are.'

Although beating the Redskins is important, I think it's more important for us to beat the 'Skins AND Denver. Denver I say for two main reasons: 1) They're nipping at our heels for that #2 seed (which by the way we all should be rooting for the Texans Monday Night), and 2) We MUST, for lack of a better phrase, exorcise some demons against Manning. We have to show him that he won't just come in here and whip up on us, especially since there is a strong possibility we could see them in the playoffs. To me, that win would be more important than the Pittsburgh loss.

Why would we lose confidence? I'd say the media, self-styled pundits on TV, radio types and journalists from other cities have lost confidence - they give us zero respect. The Redskin fans give us zero respect - they will see come Sunday what type of team we are, what type of organization we are. We will walk away with the W and prove them all wrong.

Broncos & Bengals are the most important games left, Redskins & Giants are place holders.

These next 2 games are it - but Hardhitters makes a good point - we have to have those 2 AFC games - can't lose those - we need to find a way to lock down GG3 and Manning (Denver) - we will be sitting pretty if we do. Pats also have SF coming to them after Houston - that's tough.

The Ravens MUST come out strong in all fazes of the game this weekend. They not only have to win, but they need to DESTROY the Skins. This game is very important, and if they come out flat, and lose...well...

one of two things will happen: we will get hot, go on a run, get some luck ala 2000 and take it to the AFC championship and maybe beyond. Or we will continue underachieving on offense, have a rough next 4 games, probably play pittsburgh in the wild card round, and we'll be fortunate to get past that one. frankly, the latter looks alot more likely. I just dont see that championship caliber play from our QB and our D isn't #1 like it was last year due to injury. sigh

Kevin Byrne always inspires me and makes me feel like we can and WILL achieve all our goals. The only one that inspires more is Ray Lewis

With the amount of replacement players we have shuffling in i do not think they ever had the confidence, just the pressure to impress.

Leave it to Kevin to find a way to steady the boat and get some motivation flowing.

What an inspiration!

Kinda agree but the broncos have an easy schedule besides us. If we want a home game we just about need to win out or hope for others to lose

Great article. I can't believe I'm one of the more optimistic people on here. One of my best friends is a Panthers fan and he always says he can't believe how spoiled people here are.

Joe Flacco added more: "Everybody wants to act like the world's coming down on us when we've lost one game. We're a 9-3 team. We're not 3-9. We have three losses, not nine. We didn't feel good losing at home to the Steelers. We can't go back. We can do something about it this week."

^very true! and it ALL starts with you Flacco cause you are our QB. talk is cheap...put up or shut up! let's see this big boy talk in your game play on Sunday. get out there and beat the skins!

Joe FlaccoPosted Image added more: “Everybody wants to act like the world’s coming down on us when we’ve lost one game. We’re a 9-3 team. We’re not 3-9. We have three losses, not nine. We didn’t feel good losing at home to the Steelers. We can’t go back. We can do something about it this week.”


This is a good quote. A lot of pundits predicted the Ravens to miss the playoffs before the season, and thus will now act like the Ravens will lose out to try to justify their predictions (I'm looking at you Pete Prisco). This team is not losing 5 games in a row. Wishful thinking.
