This is all playing into our hands so perfectly!!!

It's unbelievable how 1) stupid so many columnists are and 2) how the Ravens are completely discounted

Remember back in the day when Jordan played, and there were those players and columnists that would taunt him?

Well, it was almost certain that he'd not only win that next game, but also drop 45-50 points.

THAT'S how the Ravens need to respond!!!


But keep in mind, these are Denver fans. These are the same people that were clamoring for Tim Tebow...yea...Denver is not exactly a haven for the smartest football fans.

It's ok. Every American will know the name Ray Lewis for the rest of their lives. He will be enshrined in the hall of fame forever. He will set many legacies much after his football career. Who is Mark Kiszla? Just another writer who's name nobody will know outside of Denver. Leaving a legacy starts by having respect for yourself and respect for others. I hope people like Mark Kiszla get humbled on Saturday.

Why is every sports media writer now a sensationalist jerk (being nice)? Is that the only way to get page hits? By being offensive?

Just Remember, Baltimore fans, how that 'toothy' John Elway threw us under the Bus in his draft.... 'My Daddy doesn't want me to play for Baltimore... My Daddy wants me to play for a (contender?)' wow would LOVE to see that Jerk suit up Saturday, and Suggs take him to the House!

It'll be interesting to see how the Ravens and texans respond to these libelous assassination attempts by bush league columnists. And I kinda wish MaGahee was playing. He's always good for a turnover or two. A fumble at the least!

I can't wait for Saturday. Keep talking all your bull in Denver because were gonna come in there and put a beat down on you. I love how all the people in Denver are over looking that in the Post Season Peyton has a losing record and especially in games that are not in a dome. So when it's 10 degree's on Saturday and Peyton is getting smashed by Paul Kreuger and struggling remember that you idiots in Denver fed us the whole week.

Denver, purchased, bought, Manning. Unlike Ray, he is not from that organization. So typical of Denver. Have you evr been to Denver? Nothing but a bunch of stuck up rich kids smiling with bought Elway lookng teeth. Not suprised they lack class, it's all about how you were raised. So the comments from that phoney town really don't concern me. But I hope read it and it sets the stage for a grand upset!

GO RAVENS!

The Broncos need to remember that after a team plays us they play injured. Can someone tell me how RG3 is doing?... as I recall he decided to match wits with Mr. Ngata...

The only reason the Broncos are talking is because of Manning... he will have a short career there and then they can go back to being Teblow lovers.

Kizla's article was nowhere near as bad as Ashley Fox's. He is a Denver columnist so i'd expect him to think Denver will win. He comes across as a little more balanced in his article, even if he still thinks that Baltimore will win when hades freezes over. That said, it is just to funny to see all of the articles coming out and essentially stating that "The Ravens don't have a chance" when EVERY team has a chance EVERY game.

Some here know that I like the read the next day sports columnists of cities we've played!

That Reggie Wayne whine was not the main story in Indy! To their benefit, most of the columnists of the Indy Star praised their "Mayflowers" and pointed out pluses and minuses moving forward!

So, I look forward to reading the Denver sports columnists' after we vanquish their broncos! Perhaps they will echo what the English said in A.D. 810 concerning raids from the Northmen:

"Pity us the highest favor by preserving and guarding our bodies, free us from the savage Northman tribe who devastates our realms"

Here's a bolder prediction - if we get big games from Upshaw, McPhee, Kruger, and Williams - we win.

Plus - I think Jacoby has another special dance or 2 for us...which would mean he's got another return or 2 in him....

According to Denver, we may as well not even bother playing this game. Heck, just give the Broncos the Super Bowl trophy now. In all my years of watching football; I've never seen such arrogance and over confidence...EVER. This is not only in Denver, but the main stream sports media as well. There are a few exceptions; who are actually intelligent football analysts.

But I am in utter disbelief at the absolute surety of these fans and so called "experts". It would be laughable if it weren't so disgusting and unprofessional.

But hey, like I said earlier; this plays into our hands perfectly.

I not only want the Ravens to win this game; but I want them to smash these Broncos into oblivion, and crush their spirit so that they regret ever having to face the Ravens again.

We may not win; but I promise you it's going to be a heck of a game.

No one is picking the Ravens to win this game but it doesn't matter whats said. Everyone knows deep down that were a great team. If we get past Denver I honestly don't think any one will beat us Patriots/ Houston. The Patriots choked in the Superbowl and Houston played like crap against Cincy. Were the best team to represent the AFC all we have to do is prove this to the world. Run the ball and let Leach put Von Miller on his back

I don't understand how these pundits can unanimously pick the Broncos. Don't people watch sports? Every year, every sport has a chosen one...a top dawg...that goes down like Frazier! Or down like Louis! Or down like Liston! Or down like Duke!

Unbelievable that these people watch sports all the time and see the big favorites go down ALL the time, yet they still have so much conviction without a shadow of a doubt that this time will be different.

If anyone here is a writer, remind the Denver (and rest of NFL) faithful what Peyton Manning's record is when he is not playing in a dome...or remind him of his record when his team gets a 1st round bye. Maybe that will shut people up until Saturday afternoon at least.

This game reminds me of the 2009 playoffs when the Ravens played the Patriots and blasted them 33-14. Nobody gave the Ravens a chance that game.

Spot on! I hadn't even thought of that. Apparently, NE was too good offensively and they never lost at home right? Same could be said about last year, and we went up there and outplayed them.

The game I keep coming back to is that NE vs NY game where The Pats blasted the Jets in the regular season and everyone just assumed the Pats would do the same thing again, but ended up getting their butts kicked

I am used to seeing the Ravens as underdogs but I have never seen people so dismissive of the Ravens in recent years. The fans are pretty arrogant for a team that cheered for Tim Tebow last year and haven't been a threat since the Elway years (MAYBE Cutler/Marshall). The media across the whole nation is disrespectful and acts like the Ravens are the Browns coming into this week. It's like nobody is taking into account that the Ravens were badly injured all year. Although chances are it won't happen, it would be lovely to see the Ravens smash the Broncos or shut them out just to hear the pin drop spread across the NFL nation. However, more than likely it will be closer than everyone thinks.

Everyone is writing us off without bringing up a few key points:
1. Pollard, Ngata, Ellerbe did not play, yet we held Denver to 10 first half points (minus Flacco int)before the game bust open.
2. Suggs had his first game back. He still not be 100, but having a few games under his belt is going to make him more of a force.

(These two factors alone will make a huge difference in the game)

3. Finally, Caldwell was coaching his first game. The offense has made strides since he first took over.
