At work last night, I shut down a Broncos fan by reminding him that Manning is 0-4 in games with temperatures below 40 degrees. :D

2:30 mountain time....COLD&BOLD in Denver. Shutting down the "gloved" Manning will be the task aT hand for the RAY-vens. but stopping the run and making the Denver team one dimensional can make that task doable. If Manning is forced into 3rd and long by Ngata,Cody,K-man,McHee,Jones & Upshaw up front stuffing Moreno&Hillman then Ray,Ellerbe,Kruger,McCllean&Suggs(if healthy) can make it a long day for the NFL poster boy. GO RAY-vens pretend it's 2000 all over again BUT without the Stokley TD.

My beer may not get as cold as game time temps in Denver (w/out freezing) but it will taste 10 times better than any Beer served in Denver after the Ravens win...

Go Ravens!!!

I had a dream last night that Caldwell was game planning against Houston..

The last time I had a Ravens-related dream, I dreamed that we demolished the Steelers, and that's exactly what we did week 1 last year.

I cannot wait to see McKinnie put Miller on his back on the frozen field. He will be sure to watch out for getting smashed the rest of the game.

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]Everyone keeps telling me, "The Ravens are going to get spanked."[/i][/font]

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]I just keep shaking my head in disbelief, trying to imagine the look of shock & awe on their faces tomorrow after the Ravens have knocked off the top-seeded Broncos in their Mile-High Stadium in sub-20 temperatures.[/i][/font]

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i][i]Why people think the Ravens are a "warm weather" team, I'll never understand it. They obviously never saw the dump trucks of snow leaving the stadium a few years back. I do.[/i][/i][/font]

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]Monday is going to be such a great day to come back to work.[/i][/font]

As a Baltimoron living in Denver I have heard plenty of stuff talked about our team. Now its time to shut up. I for one cant wait to see the Ravens prove to the world what we as fans have always known, that we are one hell of a team that is gonna take home the lombardi! If anyone is going to be at the game come find me in section 530! Lets show these Donkey fans how its done

I give the Ravens a much better chance in cold weather. Especially with Flacco having artic blood in his veins.But don't think for one minute Peyton Manning is not watching all the reports about his record in the cold. He will be ready and as dangerous as advertised. Good luck Ravens

The Broncos only played 1 game this season in sub-40 degree weather. It was their final game of the season, at home against the absolutely pitiful Kansas City Chiefs. Game-time temp was 35 degrees. Their running game didn't do so well, only 3.3 yards per carry, but Peyton was very efficient. 23 / 29 for 304 yards, 3 TD, 0 INT --> 145.5 QB Rating.

So the run game was cold, the pass game was on fire. Granted, the temperature was only a few degrees below 40. According to the weather report, it should be sub-20 at gametime tomorrow. Weather.com says it should be about 19 degrees at kickoff, and steadily dropping to about 13 or 14 degrees by the time the game is wrapping up. That's a cold game!

The last time Peyton played in sub-20 degree weather, it was when Indy lost to the Jets AT HOME in the 2010 playoffs. Gametime temp was 15 degrees that day.

Peyton actually did OK that game, though. Over 200 yards, almost 70% completion percentage, 1 TD, no INTs. Not bad, but not enough to win the game.

The previous time he played in sub-20 degree conditions before that was the final game of the 2009 season, at Buffalo, he played half the game and threw no TDs, 1 INT, and his team lost 30-7.

Unless I missed something in my research, those are the only 2 games he's ever played in sub-20 degrees, and he wasn't impressive in either, and his team lost both. I didn't do too much research on the 20-30 degree range, but from the few games I noticed, it looks like his team lost most of those as well.

In those two sub-20 degree games, he was 32/44 for 320 Yards, 1 TD, 1 INT --> 91.1 QB Rating (pretty much entirely based on a very high completion percentage) and an 0-2 record.

The Flacco picture is old. If the turf is slippery it would be a problem for Rice, Pierce to make their cuts. The same could be said for their backs but our guys are more shifty than theirs.

Me too!

Had an 90 yr old rancher friend tell me about the winter it hit -70, and having to go out and save 400 calves who had literally frozen to their mama's teats - "didn't lose a one."

Fortitude and determination - you can't teach that

I was in Denver once in December when it was cold--not as cold as it will be tomorrow. I went sledding with my cousin. Climbing up the hill was hard because of the thin air, but what hurt the most was the cold air entering my lungs--felt like they were on fire. I turned to be cousin to see if he was in pain and he was totally oblivous.

GO RAVENS
