      UPDATED: MESSAGE BOARDS CLOSING AFTER DRAFT   03/08/2017

      After careful consideration, we have decided that we will sunset our message boards after this year's NFL Draft. Since we opened our boards a decade ago, the digital landscape has greatly evolved. While we understand there remains a smaller group of highly-engaged fans who participate in conversation in our forums, a significant amount of the dialogue about our team and our games has migrated away to other social media platforms over the past several years. Our message boards will remain up and running through Friday, May 5th, and will be removed on May 6th. We recognize that this change may upset avid members of our community. However, we look to utilize our time and resources to focus on how we can best connect with our fans across an array of digital/social outlets. If you are not already engaging us and other members of the Ravens Flock on our Facebook page, Instagram account, through Twitter or Snapchat, we invite you to follow us on those channels and continue to participate in our social communities. In addition, the commenting feature on our website articles will remain intact. Members will be able to continue using their boards account to log in and share their thoughts at the bottom of every news story. We’d like to thank all the Flock members and our moderators who have brought thoughtful conversation to this space and made our community great for the last 10 years. Ravens Social Media Hub »

That type of play can beat anyone. Now it's their job to maintain it. That was such a fun game to be at tonight! :)

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]We beat the Giants and the Zebras tonight... maybe we could take on the other 11 teams in the playoffs all at once... after all, isn't Seven Nation Army kind of our theme song?[/i][/font]

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]That would be a good movie to watch this holiday. Always a good family movie.[/i][/font]

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]But hey, back on topic...[/i][/font]

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]...The team out there today, we could definitely contend with anyone the playoffs currently have. Just need Big Mac in there and the rest of the squad to stay healthy.[/i][/font]

You can't play the exact same style and get the same results against every team. I'm glad the Ravens rolled and clinched the North but G-Men have been one of the most schizophrenic teams in the league this year and their record reflects that. Houston, Denver, New England, Indy and Cincy all present different challenges.

Still, there are many positives we saw against the Giants that will hopefully continue into the play-offs.

Ellerbee back was amazing, that kid is good and the way he Suggs and Reed were communicating and setting the D is what was missing. Ngata and Kruger looked good too,

That is realistic. I'm just glad this game didn't go the other way, which many thought it would.

That game changed my entire lookout on the offense and OMG to the defense. That defense was on point and was very good. The only down side i saw was Carey Williams, he is so bad that he makes me miss Carr and that should never be. The guy is not NFL material. I doubt he is CFL material. Will be so glad to see him gone.

I didn't see that. I saw him blow that one big play. But that was a hard play to defend. The WR played it perfectly coming back for the ball.
Besides that, I believe Cary has been holding his own.
One could also complain that Ed missed two big INT's. ;)

Carry Williams isn't an NFL caliber player?!? That is hilarious!!! The guy is a good CB, not great but let's not exaggerate. He gets beat every once and a while, but that has a lot to do with #20 guessing wrong and being out of position. You can't blame Carry if Ed is supposed to be over the top, and isn't.
But Carry won't be here after this season, so I guess you will get your wish.

When our offense can stay on field for that long (38 minutes, 2:1 ratio ball possession), you give the defense to rest and play in full burst every time they step in the field. I'm not sure how many times defense forced a 3&out vs. Eli Manning...but it was ALOT.

I say defense were as prepared in Giants game as they were in Broncos.

But the difference was that in Broncos game, our offense went FIVE 3&out in 1st half. Our defense were dead exhausted by end of 1st half. They were out of gas staying on field for so long. They were putting elite pressure vs. peyton in the start, but were non-existent in 2nd quarter.

That's just how it is in football. Both sides of our players needs to perform. Offense & Defense needs to help each other for us to win come playoff time.
