Its a story book year. Chapter 1 Art Modell passes away and his spirit remains a Raven forever. Chapter 2 Ravens Nation wins the 2nd straight division title. Chapter 3 Ray Lewis announces his retirement. Chapter 4 what used to be the Baltimore Colts returns to BMore and suffers a loss. Chapter 5 Hall of famer Payton Manning Ex Colt gets beat. Chapter 6 Ravens Nation returns to Foxborough for redemption. To be continued.

Coincidence, I think not. Someone is looking over Ravens Nation.

The national media doesn't like us. At this point, I really don't care about all that elite stuff or any of that. I just want Harbaugh, Flacco, Rice, Torrey, Yanda, Birk, Q, Suggs, Reed, and of course, Ray Lewis to get a ring this year.

As long as we believe in #5, #52 will be rewarded.

Ignore Colin Cowherd ... he's never respected us. During the season, he gave his top ten teams ... Pittsburgh was #2 and we weren't on the list. At what time during this season could that be anything but nonsense.

Just like last week - it is not saying that you just can't see the Ravens upending the Patriots because they just look so unbeatable - it is saying we're going to get "smoked". That's disrespect and let's feed off of it.

The title to the Chadiha article in question is even better, I read that piece of "journalism" yesterday: "Broncos Choke in Historic Fashion." Zero respect whatsoever, not even a "Ravens Capitalize on Broncos' Mistakes," just zero respect.

Nothing new to any of us, just wanted to point out to ESPN to keep it up, this team definitely thrives on the disrespect.

Man, I'm tired of these so called "experts" on ESPN, a better description for those guys would be "clowns" or "jock riders." Ravens will go into Foxboro and demand respect, we saw what happened when everyone counted them out.

%u201CBut nobody outside of their fan base should buy into such bluster. The Ravens won because they hung around long enough to take advantage of the Broncos' critical errors. That's the only way to explain the way this AFC divisional playoff game played out.%u201D - Jeffri Chadiha

Are you kidding me?!?!!? The only way we won was because of the Broncos' errors? How about our special teams spotting one of the best QB's ever 14 points? How about the Ravens were just the better team.....still waiting for anybody...ANYBODY....to acknowledge this fact around the nation.

It doesn't matter what the pundits think. We're not playing them next Sunday. We'll be playing the Patriots, and I can assure you that no one on their team will be taking us lightly. They will be very well prepared Sun. So will we. This will be another hard fought contest. Raven's are nearing full strength and have unity of purpose. Ravens will prevail.

(sorry for the repost, too many errors)

Was anyone listening to 105.7 the Fan this morning? Someone asked Mike Preston, a known Flacco basher and Baltimore sun sports columnist, for him to admit he was wrong about Flacco. The caller basically asked for him to eat crow but his ego refused to admit it. He continued to reference him as an average quarterback and that will never change. What the heck?? Seriously? Why won't it ever change? People's expectations of Matt Ryan are changing especially since he has now won a playoff game. Look at Flacco's stats in the postseason (5TD,0int, 600 yards, 120 QBR). They are fantastic. He even has dueled and outplayed the ELITE Brady and Manning. Flacco should get some respect...he is inconsistent at times during the regular seasons, but all QBs have bad games, let's hope Flacco continues to play lights out during the playoffs! Without Flacco, not our defense, we wouldn't be here this season. This is Flacco's year...and after Ray leaves, it will be his team. Mike Preston is still bitter by saying Troy Smith was a better qb than Flacco. He can't let it go.

So the Patriots not having Gronk is a huge loss? Maybe so, but they still adjusted to his absence last night and put 41 points on the board against a pretty good defense. Ravens have to be at the top of their game this weekend. Let's get it!

Someone definitely needs to let it go.

Does anybody really care what ESPN says anyway? If your not the Patriots or Steelers their "experts" will trash you.

Elite, or not elite question again? Let's put it this way. Joe Flacco is a winning QB in legendary games against legendary QBs in the circle with future hall of famers...... You all in the media can label him as you wish, I am just glad he is OUR QB!

These are the days that my son will tell to his grandchildren, and they will tell to theirs. These are the days of Raven legends that football history will remember for ages to come. To be a witness to this history for Baltimore football is a blessing. Thank you Ravens for sharing this with us.

GO RAVENS! Two more stops on this journey!

Both of these clowns are blowing smoke and it ain't no cigar.But it's alright because we like being the underdogs.They said it was impossible for the Ravens to beat the Broncos.Now it's all about excuses.Where's that woman from Denver that talked all that smack.I want to hear what she has to say now.What excuse will they give?What excuse will they give when we beat the Patriots?When the NFL let Dirtsay leave with OUR Colts,that let me know then that Baltimore gets no respect.Like one of the talking heads referred to Flacco as the Rodney Dangerfield of the NFL.Go Ravens!Prove the world wrong and lets get this trophy again.

I don't understand why we have this discussion about being elite... Why does it matter if he is considered elite or not? He is who he is. He wins a lot, loses some, and makes big throws when we need them most.
