Yes, the Broncos are really good. But let's take a closer look. Plus Chris Berman stands alone.

See where the pundits are going wrong...check this out.[list]
[*]Ed Reed won Defensive player of the year in what 2004? People didn't start talking about Ed Reed...they were still on Ray Lewis
[*]They probably didn't start talking about Ed Reed until 2008 or so, but by that time, it was all about Haloti Ngata
[*]Then in 2011, it was all about the Lardarious Webb Show, but folks didn't bother to mention him. They were talking about Ed Reed (finally), and saying the defense is old
[*]I just heard Kari Champion ask - will Ray Lewis make a difference because he wasn't in the first game. Teams were rushing for maaaad yards against the Ravens with Ray in the game early in the season, so if one was half smart, they would assume the same result (Even though we've tightened things up)...but they aren't assuming that
[/list]
They are asking the wrong questions, making the wrong assumptions. These folks don't go to the bar to watch all the games. They watch their favorite teams, they watch highlights of all the teams, and they read up on stats. That's why, only Mike and Mike have said we're picking the Ravens, because they do a little more than everybody else.

People should feel real funny about situations like this where the masses go with one side.

BTW - Chris Berman is in love with the Ravens. He comes to visit. He always picks us to go to the Super Bowl. I don't know what it is, but he likes us, and we like him

I will be at Mile High this Saturday. No one gave us a shot in NE last January. The line was 7 for us at least. And we know how tight that game turned out. Peyton has done a number on us - except week 15, which woulda been a mess against anyone given our OC situation, that was ALL before we had the offensive set we have now with an experience Flacco, Torrey, a seasoned and fresh Rice, BP, and Boldin. Just saying, I feel strangely good about this one.

Where's my helmet and pads? Kevin, you've got me ready to suit up!

I made it a point to wear my Lewis jersey today, will wear it again tomorrow. Going to enjoy wearing it this weekend and the next three as well... all the way to New Orleans!

Brady awaits us in a week in Foxboro. Let's take care of Manning and go back to New England and show them that Tucker is no Cundiff.

That jerk writer from DEN not only said Ray would go out a loser ... he referred to him as "washed up". Wow! Ray may not be what he once was - but washed up? I mean, write to inspire your fans, but please ... but how dare you level such disrespect to one of the greatest who has played the game. Sick.

Above is the Broncos schedule this year. Who'd they beat in their 11 game winning streak? Kansas City Twice, Oakland Twice, San Diego Twice, Cleveland, Cincinatti, Carolina, a hobbled Saints at the time, and a very hobbled us with three of our four leading tacklers in Ray Lewis, Dannell Ellerbe, and Bernard Pollard were out with injuries. Not to mention Suggs and Ngata playing with injuries. It was Jim Caldwells FIRST game as a OC (Sorry about the caps, I'm not trying to be rude, I just wanted to emphasize how important that fact is) that new OC was missing Marshall Yanda, our best run blocker, and Ed Dickson, another important piece in the run block game. Our run game was awful and their pass rush got to us because of the bad play calling. But since then, Jim Caldwell has gained tremendous respect from our team in the way he's called plays. Our offense is healthy and our OC has gotten more experience. Flacco is amazingin the playoffs, doesn't matter if it's cold or not! And Peyton Manning is 0-3 in playoff games when kickoff is under 40 degress. It's going to be 18! He has a Touchdown/Interception ratio of 1/7 in those games. Our running game gets going in the playoffs and when it's cold and our one-two punch of running power is going to give us life this time. I don't really know how important the air is, I don't know if Peyton Manning is going to perform or if the Broncos defense is going to be able to contain us but if I were making the odds I wouldn't put the Ravens as 9.5 underdogs...no I would not. I would put it at just about even. The Broncos have the advantage, I can admit that, but the NFL should stop acting like we're chumps because it's the Broncos who have had it easy. Guess who the Broncos lost to? The Atlanta Falcons, the Houston Texans, and Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. I believe the only playoff teams they beat were the Cincinatti Bengals (really) and us...when we were limping into our own stadium. I just wanted to clear the way that if someone bet on the Broncos 9.5 spread, you're not going to win.

I would be lying if I said that it wasn't discouraging for me to see how no so-called expert or analyst thinks the Ravens can win. It really makes me mad! I feel like all of footballdom is talking trash! Ugh... We gotta win this one!

This week has truly annoyed the heck out of me listening to these cocky Denver fans and the media just saying how we have no chance ect. We been in this situation several times and I think we will get over our hump and beat the Broncos.

You forgot to mention - of Peyton's 11 prior playoff appearances, 7 times he's lost the first game. We're going to have to play our hearts (and lungs) out, but to say we don't have a chance is just idiotic.

Also, for anybody else that remembers our Super Bowl run, one of the things that stuck out? We were the underdog in EVERY GAME.

FRONT PAGE OF ESPN.COM : "BRONCOS BEST TEAM IN NFL"......"maybe they are......but not today." Idc what is said by either side. Football is a man's game that's played by the men ON THE FIELD. Saturday @ 3:30 will determine the better team. No article or opinion will change that. I remember in 2008 when we went ON THE ROAD to Tennessee to play the titans in divisional round, when they were considered "best team in NFL" at the time. We came in with a ROOKIE QB and played our hearts out and beat the Titans. This Saturday we have another chance to go into a hostile environment w/ a 5 year vet @ QB Ray Rice, the GOAT, #55, #20, #92....."TOGETHER WE CAN DO ALL THINGS". GO RAVENS.

I picked the Ravens in the beginning and I'm sticking with them too. Manning can put up the stats and still have a bad game. That is what I'm looking for to happen.

Um im i the only one who think our practice squad and back ups did a heck of a job in the game against peyton and the Broncos.like 3 of there first 4 drives ended in a three and out and we got pressure on manning and sack him 2twice and hit him about 8 times so. with our starters that going to be a whole different game Bronco fans and if you think that game is going to be a blowout your stupid! i say Ravens win by 3 23-20 Justin Tucker hits the FG this time! GO Ravens!

I will be the happiest Raven fan in the world when we finally hand Peyton to "maybe next year". If the Ravens and Patriots or Texans win all these people will be saying the same crap. We will have no chance. They hate Baltimore.
