The Ravens are almost a touchdown favorite for Sunday’s wild-card game against the Colts.

Mr. Downing,... all the stats point to this game not even being close, a resounding Raven victory!

Add Ray's announcement and the hunters back in the "pack", how can the word "underdog" be anything other than a cartoon super hero?

You must have overheard McPhee talking about his chances of replacing Arthur Jones tomorrow!

A waste of time article. Why in the World would they feel like underdogs? Because McPhee says so. Ravens by at least 10!

Same old story. Every big game, its all about how the ravens "feel like underdogs"
Seriously, how many times do we read the same story?

Ravens are 7 pt favorites and climbing in the Vegas Sports Books. Late in the know money is coming in strong for a Raven's cover of the spread. If you wager on that sort of thing. Underdogs? (he-he) Oly we can beat ourselves tommorrow. I hope Pollard can go.

We won't let Indy come here and embarrass us. That would be devastating. Our team came so close last season. Anything other than a Ravens blow out will be a disappointment.

I remember Joe Theismann predicting at the start of the season that the Ravens will win the Super Bowl this year. He put emphasis on it by saying: "I did this back in 2000". All signs point toward it happening, imho. Go Ravens!!! :)

I have a feeling the Colts are going to come out firing (passing). I think our Defense is going to be key. Hopefully, another game the RAVENS win with keeping the score low and the offense must come through with 20 points, maybe 27 in order to win. I know we can beat all the odds they're putting on us, and also the cheap and stupid label as underdogs, that is getting old around here, with a veteran team like we have. Play like a RAVEN!!!!!

Did you read the part where it says the oddsmakers and pundits favor the Ravens? I wouldn't call that "no respect"...

Chris Berman also predicted the Ravens to win the SB before the season started - and yesterday he said he still sees us get into the Super Bowl - he predicted a Harbowl.

Guy must be an avid Ravens-fan... Never seen him bet against us, and never heard him say anything bad about the Ravens...

And probably would play New England in a championship game. Texans aren't playing that much better.

For some reason, I am not fully comfortable this time around. This post-season feels weird in that there is a queasy feeling in the pit of my stomach. I want our Ravens to win so badly for Ray Lewis, coupled with the fact that the only way we do that is with our offense playing long and playing well and scoring points. So it really boils down to Joe Flacco and the offense. Can they sustain drives, stay unrattled and not commit big untimely turnovers? Or are they going to be the same up one day and down the other Ravens O?

Flacco needs to show up big for the next 1, 2, 3 or even 4 games! If he does, we win the Lombardi! Otherwise we will send Ray Lewis into retirement with not so good memories....
