We need Flacco to play his butt off for the the 4 games.I know you can do it Joe.Its only 4 games.He should be able to get off to an easy start this sunday at home(where he plays Aaron Rodgers like) vs a rookie qb and a lesser defense.Lets go win one for Ray!!!!!

The Ravens won their first Super Bowl 5 years after they had come to Baltimore. Joe is now in his fifth years in Baltimore. So Joe, you're gonna get this done and bring the second Lombardi Trophy home. The rest of the league is fearing you and all the guys. You all, do this one for Ray Lewis!!!

I'm an admitted Joe critic sometimes but I think this will be his best playoffs yet. I just think enough happened through the season that he really have that edge as we call "fire" now.

I'm calling for the offense to dominate and allow the defense to stay balanced.

This is the swagger Joe can bring. Joe has the confidence and I feel like with Cam gone he can expand and put his own stamp on this team.

just play smart football joe. if nothing is there quickly than either roll out, take off running, throw the ball away or just take the sack which is better than turning the ball over. just make sure the other teams key guys are accounted for. o-line please challenge yourselves in these playoffs to not be mauled but to be the maulers. dominate the line of scrimmage.

I'm feeling some great vibes fans, this gonna be the year,I can just see the whole scenario falling into place,everybody coming together for Ray Lewis and beyond,this team " Ball So Hard " Is a force to be reckoned with,Joe will flourish under Jim Caldwell, Joe Flacco got the fire burning in his eyes now,I can see it,goodby is the pocket passer,we got some great people to take over from Ray Lewis,In the next few years teams that are doing well now will no longer be here,Ravens will be like the Steelers,Patriot and Packers all rolled up into one team " RAVENS FOREVER "

"At ease", or not- just MAKE SURE those concrete shoes are put away- for good. Extend the plays and make it happen !

I hope we open up the playoffs the way we opened up the season:

1st play from scrimmage, bomb ! Flacco to T Smith !!!

Point spread is 6.5, should be 16.5... we're gonna crush Indy !

Can't wait !!!

Its always offense who wins or loses the game for a team!!!

So Joe better be ready for the dance, onus of Ray lewis and Ed Reed is getting passed on to Joe and Ray Rice this postseason and for next 10 years from here on now. Hope the later 2 will turn out to be HOF for Baltimore like previous two.

Because if it does I am sure we've got plenty of superbowls, AFC Championships, playoff wins coming our way!!!

GO RAVEEENSSS!!!!

Please have Jacoby show you some of his moves Joe. Calm is Good under fire, but scrambling for first downs is next step to gettin the Lombardy and the big buck$.

Joe will do just fine. If Harbaugh manages the clock correctly and his coordinators make the right decisions we're in. Don't give them anything.

Flacco isn't the scrambling type. But it's not a pre-requisite to success in the NFL. How many times have we seen the two Mannings scramble, for example? Yet they combine for 3 rings. Brady isn't the scrambling type either, though he does it every now and then. And i don't recall any historic Brees-, Favre- or Rodgers-scrambles, either...

Love the stats...tells the facts. The only loss Joe had with a decent QB rating was last year against one of the worst defenses in history. Go look at some of the QB's that threw for over 300yds last year against the patriots. Hey Joe, here's an idea....maybe instead of NOT buying into the playoff hype, perhaps try buying into it. That "calm cool Joe" thing has worn off, and so has NOT making it to the Super Bowl. Play with some urgency, and act like you want to win one for Ray. Don't screw this up Flacco, Lewis has carried you since you arrived, not the other way around.

Dude only threw for over 200yds twice in 9 games, and in KC half that went to Heap against a bad defense. That snapshot of Flacco's stats tells it all. And the best is when people say stats don't matter, that's even funnier, cause losses do matter, and with those numbers, it's no wonder we never advanced to a Super Bowl. I gave Flacco a pass for the first three years, but if he screws this year up, and it will be on him, then we need to seriously start looking at the QB position. How many playoff rides without going to the Super Bowl are we willing to accept?

If you look at those stats, those are the reason we have not won a superbowl. Our defenses have got us to the playoffs the past 4 years, but even with the great Defenses we have had, they will only get you so far in the NFL era today. You have to have a QB who can carry a team in the playoffs to get to the big dance. Look at the past superbowls, all of them had very good QB's in them. The last to make it with a bad QB were the bears with Rex Grossman, and they didn't win. Flacco will have to play big in these next 4 games, and he will get a bigger contract if he does that....

The general consensus is that we'll go as far as Joe takes us. I think there is certainly some truth to that, but its not about having world-class stats. Its just about being very, very efficient and not making devastating mistakes.

Certainly, some of the stats above are hideous and denote bad play, but some denote a lack of trust/use of the QB and other denote bad TEAM play. He gets beaten up for his game vs. HOU, but our line and receivers were awful. The 2009 NE game looks sick, but who needs a QB when you've run for 200 yds and gotten off to a 24-0 lead in the 2nd quarter? His truly dismal games were both vs. PIT and the IND game. But even the IND game, we couldn't run the ball AT ALL on one of the worst run defenses in the game - go figure.

We all know he's capable of really good games, but he will never be one of the greats. That's fine - again, just be very efficient and mistake free and do that consistently and we could actually take this thing.

Look, we all know that Joe has well documented flaws and is not what one thinks of when they imagine the typical super bowl winning QB. That being said, Joe was not the reason why we did not win a super bowl last year.

No im not saying last year, but if you look at the previous years, Flacco was a big reason why.
