The last 2 times they played the Colts in the playoffs, the Ravens lost.

I do not see that happening again this time around. Play the same game they played against the Giants last week and everything should go fine.

So based on some in the National Media we do not need to have the next 2 weeks of playoffs. Just start at the AFC Championship and give the ball to Brady & Manning. Talk about NO RESPECT. Lets root for a all AFC North AFC Champion Ship game. Cincy and The Baltimore Ravens in BALTIMORE!!!

The patriots are pretenders.They blew out the texans but the texans arent the same team they was earlier in the year.They wouldnt have a good record if they was in a real division.If we played the jets,dolphins and bills for the division wed look like champs too.If it wasnt for the patriots being who they are the AFCE would be considered the worst division in football.

I just hope the Refs aren't positioning for a Manning vs Brady AFC Championship, although that won't really affect us this week. Then again, I bet the League would love to see Manning face the Colts in Round 2.

Here's hoping they call it fair.

Joe Flacco ALWAYS outplays Tom Brady! When will the cry be for Flacco vs Brady, smh? Look, we missed the big dance by a missed chip shot, last year. We're back. Let's get this. And, forever silence the Flacco haters. Go Ravens!!! :)

Look like we may be facing the Broncos after all. Either way you slice it, an elite QB is getting a bye week then facing us if/when we win. Hopefully defenses aren't ready for a Caldwell game plan and relentless defense.

I'm definately happy Harbs rested those who needed it. It was bad enough seeing Leetch leave real early in the game. If there was something serious to play for, it would've been a war but, it was better to have our best that are hurt take a break.

I also had a sinking feeling there would be cries for Tyrod to replace Flacco somehow. It's just way better that the players and coaches don't read media.

It's funny how you can see it in all the eyes of sports casters and news people light up when they mention it's an AFC Championship game with Brady and Manning. Like the other 6 teams don't exsist. I thought it was supposed to be "biased" but I guess they can't take their colors off when they turn reporters.

The Browns will get the sixth-overall pick in the draft, and the Steelers will get the 17th pick. Bahahaha!!! One of the reasons the Squeelers are on the sofa this year is their inability to draft. Maybe this'll help 'em. Bahahaha!!!

I don;t think it's fair to say that Tyrod is only a "servicable QB".
It may be true but he hasn't been working with the 1's since he got here. What kind of improvement could we have seen if Tyrod was the starting QB and getting coached up all year?
I just hope Joe sees the value of moving around in the pocket a little like he did against the Giants. That extra second means the world to our recievers!


I'm not saying we should change QB's but we should also cut him some slack. He looked pretty good last night and any mistakes he made were mostly because of a lack of playing time IMHO.

@ KidNme: "I just hope Joe sees the value of moving around in the pocket a little like he did against the Giants. That extra second means the world to our recievers"!

- THAT is the key and has been- all along ! Not sure why this took so long to address- if it has been addressed. We will see... Lets hope Joe FINALLY has tossed away those concrete spikes !

I know it's chess Sizzle not checkers, but this Sunday can the defense play a few rounds of checkers between the chess and crown this kid Luck! LOL

I am very glad that Chuck P. is doing good now, but...this is the business of football and everyone needs to focus on the fact that the Ravens beating the Colts (who ditched Baltimore to go to Indy at night BTW) does not make us the "bad guys" as I have heard. Need to focus on playing towards the SB goal Sunday. Not buy into media-drama-hype all over the press. Chuck we all love you, but that won't stop the Ravens from beating the Colts.

GO RAVENS!

Even if they had a mind of their own, they wouldn't be able to make it up. They're a pathetic group of leeches whose opinion is as valuable as the skid mark on my terrible towel.

As much as I want us to win it all, the media is playing the tone of what you see is what you get. After the past 5-6 weeks I would put Brady and Peyton in the AFC championship game too. Hopefully we can upset the teams we face.

Any news on Leach?
[/quote]

As I see, nothing "official", but everyone (the coach, Leach himself, etc.) says it's nothing serious, nowhere near threathening his participation next Sunday, he could have gone back and play on if it was necessary, he was just pulled out to play it absolutely safe.

About the same with Osemele.

I guess there's no doubt about those two being the two best overall (roster + coaching + form) teams right now in the AFC.

But just how many times has one or both of the two best teams fell short before even getting near the Super Bowl... The two undisputedly best teams of the NFC last season, for example, were the Packers and the 49'ers. Neither made it...

My pleasure. Let's hope the injury picture doesn't change during the week. If it doesn't, we can field the strongest team this season. The first time Suggs and Lewis together... Reed & Pollard Inc. ruling the backfield again... If Webb could also play, it would be the strongest possible Ravens, IMHO.

Burfict was a steal for the Bengals.... but he has to realize that he had 18 tackles against our backups.... and our # 2 RB nearly put up 100 against his defense.

@biolarzen

Made it or not, the way they played compared to the way we played what do you expect the media to say. Maybe if we beat the Broncos they would be saying the Ravens is the upset team, watch out but we didn't. Don't be mad the media is picking the teams that hold together. We just need to hold it together and make them pay homage.

[/quote] I completely agree. I expect a much more solid team on both sides of the ball this weekend. I WISH Webb could play!! But our DBs have looked pretty darn good. I'm really impressed with the backups.

OF courseTyrod is no Flacco yet... how much has he played. He is a great athlete with a ton of potential (given the opportunity to grow and develop) Flacco has had that opportunity from day 1...

Not saying that Tyrod is our starter or anything but he is exciting adn with some experience can be an NFL QB (plus he doest seem to have that panic inthe pocket that Joe still shows)

I thought that Tyrod played very well considering!

The way we ended the last half of the regular season warranted no outspoken respect across the league. If we want respect from the media and the nation we must dominate the playoffs or be know as a great team that can't pull it together when needed.

I want the dominate playoff run.
