Well McKinnie doesn't maul anybody in the run game, but Osemele at LG shores up the interior of our Oline which has been a massive problem. One of the dudes over at the Sun said that moving Oher to RT has made Flacco more mobile at QB because he can see when to step up when someone like Mathis tries to do the around the world pass rush on Oher and Flacco simply steps up into the pocket. He couldn't with Oher at LT because he couldn't see it happening.

lots of Denver fans coming on the post and downplaying the Ravens' abilities. They have the rights to do so cuz their team are on the hot streak, and I hope this hype will continue to blow out of proportion. Harbs will print out every piece of article and highlights and show them to our team during the study-session meeting; nothing will drive up someone's motivation than the personal disrespect.

I like how the most people are giving us is "a chance" of winning. Honestly, I can't say I'm confident we will win, because Denver has such a great team. Either way I really really want this win. For Ray and to shove it in these guys faces. If Denver wins everyone will keep their smug stuck up attitudes about how they know everything. It makes me sick. I really hope we win just to see the look on their faces when all their credibility is wiped away since they gave us a "zero percent" chance of winning.

Hey, came across another one, what do you know.

"Baltimore isn’t supposed to win Saturday’s game in Denver. If Las Vegas sportsbooks are any sort of indication, this game’s not even supposed to be close. But I covered a Steelers team that rode a veteran’s last ride into Indianapolis and beat Peyton Manning in the 2005 divisional round. I covered a Giants team last year that waltzed into Lambeau and Salsa danced out as victors. I was in that Ravens locker room on Sunday. There was a certain unity — a certain desperation — that reminded me of both of those teams."

What I find funny is how so many people were picking us before the season to win the Super Bowl, we were a real popular pick. Now, with basically the same exact team (minus Webb), we don't stand a chance. And no one is using the loss of Webb as a reason we don't have a chance. It's just funny that everyone has reversed course, even though we are the same team.

It's playoff football, the second season, where mediocre teams become very good and very good teams become great. I'm not saying that we are a great team yet, but we have the potential to win it all!

Have always liked rosenthal

Being a native New Yorkers it's no surprise that he loves the Yankees, even though he covered the Orioles for years as a sports hack for the Sunpapers! He still admits that he admires the Ravens.

Nope, no respect here in the bay area

What bay, Chesapeake? No one cares about SF here in Baltimore.

I hope Denver wears their bright orange uniforms so we can target in on number 18 better.

Upsets do happen...all the pressure is on the Broncos and not the Ravens....Afterall this is not the old Mile High they are playing in.

Love that the most "respect" we are getting are "they [i]might[/i] not get embarrassed" picks from the 'experts'....

A win in Denver would probably be one of the biggest upsets in playoff history.

I don't think it would be one of the biggest upsets in history.. I mean when you compare it to the Seahawks who won their division with a losing record came from down 10 points to beat the defending Super Bowl champion Saints. Then you have the Broncos last year led by Tim Tebow beating Pittsburgh in overtime. Giants Vs Pats part 1..the list goes on and on.

The Ravens on the other hand are a good football team who due to circumstances (dead weight at OC,OC change with 3 games left, Defensive injuries ect..) haven't had a chance to reach their full potential yet this season. I say YET because this team has been getting stronger and stronger. After we lost to Denver, we've played 3 games..two being DOMINANT performances on both offense and defense with the other being a loss to cincy where we sat all of our key starters.

I think the article is right on. This Ravens team is a different monster completely right now...and they have something to play for that's perhaps larger than even the Lombardi it's self. It's winning to let Ray and Ed Reed go out as champions.

Either way you slice it, I think that people in the Media and people in Denver are forgetting that this Ravens team has been to the Divisional round of the playoffs 5 straight years including 2 AFC championship games, and back to back AFC North Championships.
