sooo true, i get goosebumps even thinking that we are a dangerous team and that we might even go to the superbowl with the talent we have. i mean flacco's first super bowl as well as rice and upshaw etc. it will be amazing for them and i know they wont lose they just proved that no matter what, they will do anything to get that win and send lewis out the right respectful way.

Greatest Raven win was the Superbowl, this game was a very close second.

Sunday Facts;
Flacco outplayed the "mighty Manning". Joe is our elite QB!

Billy Cundiff is crying and still making excuses somewhere on this planet

Cam Cameron is no longer smiling

Ashley Fox wishes she could rewind a week and delete a post she made, she is " the most hated person on the East coast". Hey Ashley I feel bad for your kids, too bad they can't get a new mother!

Harbs didn't let us down and still gave a wired after game speech... Lol

Big Mack has earned a full time spot on the O line

Finally.... Tucker is gold!

This season is MIRACULOUS, indeed! There's so much stuff it's hard to remember it all!

The feeling we had when we heard of Lardarius' and T-Sizzle's injuries to the feelings we had when Jim Caldwell replaced Cam "my-phone-ain't-rung-yet" Cameron who held us back (for years)!

Hey, diddle, diddle 29 yards up the middle!

Ray's miraculous comeback from injury! Jacoby made us forget Lee Evans!

So much to embrace,... so much more to go!

What an awesome win, here's my take on it and why we really won Bryant Mckinnie at left tackle where he belonged from the beginning of the season and Micheal Oher at right talkle WHERE HE BELONG from the beginning of the season, coach Harbaugh had a hair up his butt on Mckinnie, Ellerbe and a couple other players and yet he always say the best players will be on the field, so not true for him. Just and opinion. WHAT A GREAT WIN FOR OUR RANVENS!!! Us against the World...

I love positive talk. Last year we had a catch and a kick that failed our "destiny." Destiny was being said last year too. This is simply a BETTER TEAM. And this is the reason we are playing in the Lamar Hunt Trophy game again. Good decisions and execution by players and coaches will win it for us in the end.

You know,
I got up this morning so I could read all the great news about the great game we watched and ESPN goes out of their way to say things like, the reciever was "interferred with", "That was a prototypical Tuck rule", Champ baily was just out of position with Joes "desperation Hail mary pass to Jones", etc, etc, etc.
What a load of crap!
Also, do you think M&T stadium would have been 3/4 empty in the 3rd qtr? I think not. You would think that Denver fans could handle a little cold weather.
And, speaking of Denver fans (and ESPN), what a bunch of sore loosers! They blame the refs, the cold, say we were lucky etc. Now I know why Elway went there instead of here! :-)
Well, for all our guys, to heck with all them people. The game we played yesterday has got to go down as one of the most exciting games I've ever watched!
Even if we had lost that game, I would have still been VERY PROUD of our team!
GO RAVENS, our team of destiny!

Now, bring on Lady Brady so Joe can beat the 2 best QB's in the game, back to back. I wonder how ESPN will spin THAT story!

@ Zeus - "Ashley Fox wishes she could rewind a week and delete a post she made, she is " the most hated person on the East coast". Hey Ashley I feel bad for your kids, too bad they can't get a new mother!"

Not cool dude! you need to seperate the game of football from your issues with your mother.

Here is a stat Joe Flacco is leading all QB's this post season in TD's, yards, yards attempt, he has the longest touchdown, yards game, and he is the only QB besides Russel Wilson to not throw a INT in the playoffs even though Wilson hasn't played his second game yet.

This is a great team. I think I am more proud to be a Ravens fan right now than ever before. We have a team that never quits. That plays as a team with every single player playing at 110% for 77 minutes. Yes, I belive that this year nothing can stop this team from giving a superbowl win to Ray, Ed and its fans. GO RAVENS!!

I still havent been able to get over what an incredible TEAM victory I witnessed yesterday. Sure, ST had their issues. . . but to stay the course and rally everytime it was needed is HUGE. Great day for football fans, great day for the NFL, and even better day for our RAY-VENS!!

What and unbelievable game! There was so many swings both ways, and 5 straight quarters ended in a tie. I thought we were gonna take control of the game, and then I thought Denver was going to take control of the game. Then I thought we were going to win, and then I thought we were going to lose. Then I thought we were going to win, and then I thought we were going to lose. And then again I thought we were going to lose and Finally we did what we had to do in 2OT and Finished Them! JT is the man. Rice! Torrey! Boldin! Pitta! Jacoby! Yanda! McKinney! Birk! KO! MO! FLACCO!!! Corey Graham! Cary Williams! SiZZle! Kruger! Ellerbe! Reed! Ngata! Pollard! Upshaw! and OF COURSE THE GOAT!!! I LOVE MY RAVENS!!!!!!!!!!!!

Personally, Ive seen alot of Firsts! Denver and the texans "Finally" beat the Ravens and I just knew that it was the Ravens, time to "Finally" beat Peyton Manning! I knew it would be hard but, the Ravens had to be in the AFC Championship game this year! Joe Flacco is the lebron james of football!

Somebody get Big Mac a Big Mac, he is playing lights out. We can not run up the middle cuz Birk can get a good push! The draw out of shotgun seem to work great please run it more Caldwell!
I loved the play calling though! Offense and defense!

That was an amazing game. I wouldn't say they are a team of destiny yet until they win the Superbowl though. They are a team on a mission, on the way to an amazing destiny. :)

What a game !!! I am eating breakfast, reading the Ravens web sites stories/posts, watching the game toward the end on the dvr again, could not sleep till 4am cause I am still trying to get over the shock of a great come from behind. It`s like Xmas eve, you`re so excited you cannot sleep. What a joy it was watching Denver`s fans dancing in the stands with less than a minute left only to see Jones blow sweet kisses in the air and silence the crowd, it`s like dancing to a disco beat only to suddenly hear taps playing. I love the Ravens. My sister bought me a Ravens jacket for Xmas, I will strut around wearing the jacket all week. The entire Ravens team played like Warriors, fighting till the end. I want to give each Ravens player a big high five and a bear hug to each and everyone of them, so proud of The GOAT !!! Purple all the way baby !!!

That's what everyone is failing to recognize. We have the right o-line lineup in there finally. Not only is he at LT and Oher at RT, but we also have KO at the spot he played in college! Flacco has been sacked a total of what twice in the last 2 weeks?

Got negged for calling our Zeus out for his post about Ashley being a bad mother....Really? If you can put a neg up, why can;'t you man up and say WHY you think I should have been negged. It's OK to call someone a bad mother and mention their kids, over an artical you didn;t find flattering?
I expect more from Ravens fans. You NEVER talk about someones mother, especially when it has no place on this forum. SMH

Is there any doubt now that this team can win it all?!

I think everyone watching across the country saw that truth for themselves yesterday.

Last night I got asked which team I prefered our team to play next week?

My answer: Next! It don't matter!

GO RAVENS!

Lets relish in this victory we were not supposed to have. I feel so amped right now with the way we won and how we won. We have 2 more games to win, and we all know that we're not supposed to win those either. I desperately, desperately want all these haters to be proven wrong.

::::::smashes Macbook into pieces:::::: Here is your prize Denver for all that garbage talk all week long. Enjoy it.

I do not consider myself to be overly superstitious, but I felt a personal connection to this game. See in 2009 when the Ravens played the San Diego Chargers I was overseas and my wife was pregnant with our first child. Because of the time zones it was nighttime when the game was being played and my wife had gone int labor. I had to check the scores the old-fashioned way, by using ESPN's game tracker while I sat there in her room. You can only imagine the scream I let out when the game mysteriously went final while the Chargers seemed to have been driving dangerously close for a comeback. The fact that there weren't too many football fans (frankly most of them understood the word "football" to mean the game of soccer) walking the halls of the hospital made me look more like a raving lunatic than a man cheering his team playing thousands of miles away. Even the only person who understood my elation could not share it due to the discomfort of her situation. In the wee hours of September 21 2009, our daughter was born.

Fast forward to last night, my wife was pregnant with our second child and this time we were home (thankfully) and the hospital was Sinai Hospital. The situation was different, the stakes were much higher, but the feeling was the same-- my Ravens were about to play a game I desperately wanted them to win. To her credit my wife maintained she had very little doubt the Ravens would pull out a win, she just couldn't say how. When Jacoby Jones caught that 70 yard bomb, I exploded. This time around I could scream and roam the halls while the doctors and nurses apologized to other patients on my behalf while holding back laughs and smiles.

After the Ravens won last night my wife said, "I'm ready to have this baby". To all the Ravens faithful and fans, please enjoin us in welcoming our son who was born at exactly 10pm last night! These are memories that last a lifetime and I'll cherish this one for as long as I live.

If there is one downside to being center stage now, it's that we have a bunch of free agents-to-be that are now shown to the world, making it harder to re-sign.

In short:

Ed Reed, Cary Williams, Dannel Ellerbe, Joe Flacco, Bryant McKinnie, Paul Kruger are all guys who are potential free agents next season.

Obviously Flacco isn't going anywhere, and I highly doubt we let Ellerbe leave either.

I see no chance Cary Williams is back, and I think we would only be able to re-sign one of Reed or Kruger (maybe not either).

McKinnie has become the wildcard. The guy was making about $2.5 million this season, and if he continues to play well in the playoffs, can ask for significantly more on the open market, especially with a lot of teams needing offensive line help. I think it will be a struggle to keep him.

[/quote]Congrads to you and your family. My daughter was also born on Sept 21, but not the same year. That being said I have a friend who is a Giants fan and his firts son was born just seconds after Buffalo missed the FG in thier Super Bowl victory. They had the game on in the room so he was jumping for joy as his team had just won the SB and then his son was born. Life sometimes can have some amazing moments as we will see when the Ravens win the SB this year. Congrads again!!!

Careful Ravens, last time I heard this "Team of Destiny" stuff was after 4-and-29. Then came Charlie Batch, the Redskins and Broncos. It ain't destiny, it's all of your hard work and preparation--Keep it up!!

I don't know if it's God will or if they are a team of destiny. But, that game yestetday was one of the top 3 games I've seen the Ravens play. The defense was outstanding and considering they were on the field for 87 plays last week, taking away the 2 tds the special teams gace our defense only gave up 21 points to Manning. Our offensive line was superb in pass protection and opening up holes for the running game. What a great effort. Let's get another win guys.
