I see a big game for Ed Reed to prove while we should still pay the man despite him being old and not tackling anymore.

When Luck sees Reed roaming the secondary, Ray in the middle, Ngata bull rushing and Suggs on the edge, he'll crap footballs.

Luck is going to throw to Reggie Wayne every time he's in single coverage going deep. Please stay over routes Reed and get those coming back to the ball INTs. Luck know Reed but isn't afraid of him because he never played him before. Luck isn't going to be thinking I'm facing HOF players, he's going to be trying to burn us every chance he get. Let him be the rookie and we be the veterans that don't underestimate him.

Time to make Luck earn his keep and make him look like the turnover machine, rookie that he is. Smash this kid in the face and make him wish he never had to face the Ravens. Make him regret he ever played football!!!

The Ravens' fate is entirely tied to their turnover margin statistic. If they don't turn the ball over, they win, plain and simple. Would've been the case against the Stillers in Bmore, against the Skins, and against the Bungles. They just can't afford to give any team great field position or worse yet easy scores. Avoid turnovers, and win the games, period.

During the 2011 season, no one was feared by opposing QBs as much as Suggs. I can still see Brady and Rothlesburger (sp?) cowering at the sight of him. If he's 100%, he will be the difference and we'll go all the way.

@biggytuffy

Right, if Suggs 100% imagine the work McPhee, Jones, Ngata, Kruger and Upshaw can get done along with secondary blitzes off the edge. Send Ihedigbo on a nickle blitz off of Suggs and Luck body will be hurting all game.

sadly Suggs isn't anywhere near 100% but hopefully we can still wreak havoc on defense. We're going to need to.

We don't turnover the ball and that's why we won a lot of games that were close games. People like to say we easily could have been 7-9 as 10-6 and I say we could have been 12-4. How do you win a division championship when your defense is rated in the 20's? You do it by having the #1 defense in the red zone, and the #7 offense in the red zone and you don't turnover the ball. Perfect example; the Denver game where we were only down 10-0 when in the red zone where we typically score, Flacco throws a turnover, which we rarely do. If we don't beat ourself, score when we get in the red zone and hold the opposing team to field goals when they get there then we will win the same way we beat New Englandand all those other teams earlier in the year (we were down 13-0 and came back). We only need to do what we're have been doing all year and we are Super Bowl bound. We are a very good team and a little fan confidence would go a long way.

NFL.com is reporting that Ray Lewis announced his retirement after this season.
The GOAT will be gone after this Super Bowl run. They have to lay it all on the line now!

You're right! Yet, they still have to game plan against him and that bodes well for Paul Kruger, Dannell Ellerbe, Upshaw and Art Jones!

seems like a lot of our turnovers are overturned by the refs. Krugers fumble recovery in the last game for example. That was no pass. Dalton clearly wasnt throwing it. He wasnt even looking downfield anymore.

Win all facets of the game,... especially the battles of Field Position and Turnovers! Hold on to the ball, Joe, don't give them a short field!
