Divisonal Playoffs @ Denver

1,355 posts in this topic

well after cincy lost we are most certain were going to denver next weekend. that is if we win tomorrow. this is the team that blew us out in our own house just a few weeks ago. you know i heard the funniest thing during the pre-game for viks and packers. viks head coach was talking about how ponder was not starting and webb will get the start. then frazier said hopefully ponder will be ready to go next week. i was like huh. stop the dvr and listened again. he didnt say ready to go if we win he said hopefully he will be ready to go next week. maybe i am overreacting. thought it was kinda weird.

Agree that this is premature, BUT,
I have always thought Ray needed to beat Peyton before he called it quits.

Things are falling into place quite well.

I don't have much confidence of them going to Denver and coming out with a win. But, it's an anything's possible league!

Were not going anywhere until we beat the Colts. Either way I wish Webb was back. Our offensive line is going to get demolished as well.

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]All I know is, neither Houston nor Indy have what it takes to knock off NE or DEN... so, we will wind up having to face both teams if we're looking at a Super Bowl. Lets use Indy as a stepping stone on the way. Man... NE / BAL -- AFCCG Rematch... here we go again.[/i][/font]

I believe he did, in 1998 and 2001.

To be the best, we gotta beat the best.

Brady and Manning. Wow that's going to be tough.

Brady and Manning going through Ray Lewis is even tougher.

To be the best you gotta win the SB. If the opposing teams are all college JV squads it is still a ring.

this is the way i see it. the 3 teams giving this team headaches over the years. indy ended our magical 2006 season in our house. thats the last time we played them in the post season. everybody knows the deal with the patriots. correct me if i am wrong but i dont think we ever beat peyton manning before. i cant recall. when indy arrives tomorrow its gonna be loud very loud. with a rookie qb at the helm i dont see the colts winning. dont care how good luck is. brady, big ben having problems here and they have won superbowls. once we win tomorrow were off to denver. everyone is waiting for this rematch i know i am. they blew us out the first time. that wont happen again. this game we finally beat manning. then were off to new england. these guys ended our season last year. i think the ravens are drooling to get these rematches. its a storybook ending to ray's legendary career. we finally beat the colts, we beat manning finally, then we finally beat brady to go the superbbowl. its going to be seahawks vs. ravens. battle of the birds. thats my prediction.

Fans and spectators will all appreciate the more difficult path if you win it all. I joke with my boy who's a Gianta fan but I respect the hell the team for how they did it both times. The first run they went through Tampa, then a 13-3 Cowboys team and beat Favre in GB in one of the coldest games playey before knocking off an undefeated team. The second run was pretty tough too, going through GB again, a tough Niners squad and putting Brady in the fetal position again. If we could get through 2 of the best qbs of our generation on our way to a title stuff like that can boost our young teams confidence going forward. I'm sure Reed and Lewis would be that much more impressed with the victory too.

J Wow!

I've seen worst upsets than the Colts over the Ravens in the playoffs. Hell, I wouldn't even call that an upset. A 5th seed against a 4th seed.

Plus we have a poll in the Colts thread about where we should travel. Seems like some people want to do everything in their power to curse us.

i agree. baltimore is due for a title. they have gotten robbed a few times over the years. i dont know why baltimore is hated on. every year were in the playoffs and we get written off, like we have no chance in hell of winning. i am surprised were favorites for tomorrows games. i hear it all the time. ravens this ravens that. i am sick of it. was our offense really holding us back the last 5 years or is flacco the problem. maybe its the coaching it can go on til we are blue in the face. the fact is its hard to win 10 games in this league. let alone go to the playoffs. we have been in the playoffs for 5 years in a row, and we have double digit wins for 5 years in a row. people ask me what the problem in baltimore is and why have they not won at least 2 superbowls in the course of those five years. my answer is i dont know. i think getting rid of cam is a huge step. it may even be the answer on why we are not as good on offense as we like to be. but again i dont know. even if we win it all this year those primadonna sports writers will find a way to pick apart our team. i wouldnt be surprised if they said we got lucky. i am justy looking foward to playing next week. i really think this is our year. i think we will silent all the critics.

The script could not be written any better. Assuming we beat the team from Indy as we should, Ray will have the opportunity to play against Peyton and Brady one more time on his way to New Orleans. Makes for a great book! I believe he will have to play 4 more games before he retires. Welcome back to Baltimore, Chuck! As for the rest of the Indy team, may the only LUCK you have be bad!!!!

He did say he has enough for four more games. So say if we don't get to the Superbowl this year, he should come back next year for however many games will get him up to four. ;)

[i]Assuming [/i]BAL wins, they're going to have the fight of their lives! Manning's on a mission and he has the defense and kicker to take back to the Lombardi.

remember our D stopped manning's 1st 5 drives , all 3&outs, if our offense had its crab together we would of won, but who knows we might knock them out of the playoffs.

BAL had a lot of momentum to start off that game, but then DEN's defense likewise clamped down. Air Flacco needs to get it going quickly at Mile High Stadium!

that is correct omar we stopped mannings 1st five drives all 3 and outs in the first meeting. i truly believe if flacco doesnt throw that pick 6 right before the half we has a strong chance of winning. this is different we will be in denver this time around.
