1.) Congrats to the guys, well fought and deserved victory.
2.) Sad to see Ray Lewis in Bmore for the last time.
3.) Good to see Flacco bring his good game again. Also, Boldin, Pierce and Kruger were very good - and Cary had another great snatch.
4.) Glad Rice's two fumbles didn't get punished. Last guy in the team who would deserve such travesty.
5.) If the Broncos bring anything close to their A-game, one good half will be nowhere near enough.

I cannot wait to hear

1) how much Joe Flacco didnt have to do with this win and it as the defense that did all the work,

2) how we should cut Boldin next season because he's supposedly underachieving here, even though him and Joe spent the Better part of the game MOSSING any and everybody the Colts could scratch up despite the fact that (somebody actually said this to me on here a week or so ago) "washed up, inefective, name brand" pass rushers Freeney and Mathis consistently put Oher on the turf and abused Kelechi at guard.

I'm just glad Harbaugh stopped BS'ing and started McKinnie on the left like he should have all season, i saw him throw a few guys down over there.

and Kruger got tripled teamed a few times...people are gonna come after him next season, i hope he doesnt want to leave.

It was a great performance... to be completly honest We need to sign Cary & Kruger at the end of this season, as bad as they may be at times, they can be dominant. Big game next week.. & TWO games from the Superbowl Lets get it done. Ravensnation!

Finally Mckinney, KO, Birk, Yanda, and Oher!! Freeney and Mathis were non factors. Paul Kruger, Bernard Pearce (aka baby Priest Holmes), Danelle Ellerbee, and Justin Tucker are all blowing up and growing up!! Tandon Doss catch the ball, Michael Oher don't false start, Bernard Pollard don't let the refs get to you, and Ray Rice no need to press just play your game baby!! Stay focused and keep the pedal to the metal. Need to play our best game ever next week.

Q wouldnt have come up with those catches if Flacco hadnt put them on the money. So lets give him some proprs too. I think they gameplanned for Ray Rice and thats why Pierce was more effective.
The defense was frustrating at time but not as frustrating to us as they were to Luck. Yards and time of possession doesnt mean squat. Its the scoreboard that matters.
Much gratitude to Ray Lewis for all hes done for us, his team and the community and the entire NFL.
We're gonna miss ya, Ray

Everybody played hard today. We need to carry this over to next week and beat Denver. Today I saw effort everywhere. Torrey Smith blocked his tail off, Boldin had a huge game, Pierce stepped up big 13 for 103, O-line played well might be the best unit with Mckinnie at LT,Defense stuck to there game plan Kruger had a big game. I didn't know Chykie brown brought the wood like that, and I wish Ray could have snagged that pick Reed was close to snagging one to. I thought Joe did good he could of had a better day if he could have connected with Doss in the first half. Awesome game I hope Ellerbe is ok

Next week will be brutal but anything can happen

I truly think that's gonna be our hardest games this season. If we can win that game, the championship game - and if we getthere - the SB won't be as hard. The altitude alone can kill teams there... And then combineit with a QB that does what Luck did - only better and at home... A team that has both a top-10 run D and pass D...

Easily our hardest game in a long time.

BTW, boldin... anyone knows why he has so many games where he has a half where he does next to - or literally - nothing and a half where he's unstoppable? Usually it's the second half (like today), but he had games where he was good in the first half just to disappear in the second. He seems to have a tendency of that.

Anyone knows the reason?

They better have some big time plays for Pitta and Dickson because after today's game, Denver is thinking more and more about Boldin, and they'll likely try to bottle up Smith with Bailey (if he's not on Boldin)...which means Pitta, Dickson, Rice, and perhaps even Doss or Jones could be in for a big day.

Seriously, that sounds like a tough task to accomplish. No reason why anyone should be able to shut all of those components down. And with BMac finally back in at left tackle, that could help slow their pass rush...

Can't let this one slip away this time...5 years in the making. Gotta make it happen!

Can't believe Cary Williams didn't think he could run past Luck. Someone better teach him the Barry Sanders spin move or something...
