The last few weeks the offensive line have bee playing lights out and i believe that is one of the reasons we are going to beat the Patriots.Not counting out the new guys on the defense too. from a scale of one to ten i give this team a 9.

We haven't come this far to lose again to baby Brady, leave it all on the field this weekend and be victorious!

the line has looked awesome the past 3 games. i guess it doesnt matter that we screwed around with the lineup all season, because at least we found the formula when it mattered. i hope they can put together 2 more great games. if they do, we can take the title.

if they can handle big wilfork on the line I dont think theres anyone else on the pats with real pass rush ability unless they blitz but blocking 75 will be key this sunday

Birk...you've got to contain Vince!! If Joe's protection continues, he has a good shot a lighting it up!

Getting the ground game going is key, and the Pats run D has looked pretty freaking good as of late.

Wilfork is easily baited and trapped when the offense threatens pass from a one back 3 wideout, 1 TE formation. McKinnie definitely benefited from not playing earlier in the year. Big "O" rookie beast at left guard has shown our O-line can protect Joe "elite" and give Ray&Bernard lanes to run through. With Leach leading the way the RAY-vens can control the ball and keep Tom terrific on the bench. Jim Caldwell seems to have the right schemes for the team on the field. I hope they are not too tired from having 87 plays against the # 3 defense in the league with that mile high 2 degree wind chill air.TIRED?? RAY? SIZZLE? PAUL? PERNELL? HALOTI? JONES? UPSHAW? ELLERBE? heh-heh

Funny how things work out. We were fussing that Big Mac should have been at LT all year, especially after Joe's strip sacks, however the poor performance led to the dismissal of Cam. What would you rather have now?

Any count on the number of holding calls in the last 2 weeks? I can't remember back to Indy, but I don't recall any from last week.

If any at all, I'm sure it hasn't been more than 1 per game

Our offense did not have 87 plays against denver defense. Denver offense had 87 plays against our defense

Anyway, you mentioned the secret weapon - PERNELL. He gets in on those fumbles. If we can just get him and Upshaw to come up big, big like bigger than what they've done all year, pack your bags for 'nawlins!

Whatever went on earlier in the season doesnt matter. What matters is we are here and the team is hot and peaking at the right time. They look great, almost unstoppable.

The RAY-vens did have 87 offensive plays too. I'm almost sure of that but time of possession was in Bronco's favor. 5th quarter was dsominated by RAY-vens offense.

Is it just me or does it look like we played our most difficult game of the playoffs last Saturday? I have this feeling that New England is going to be a much easier game. First of all, the Patriots don't have a pass rush anywhere as good as Denver's; Brady and Manning are equal (a wash there), the Broncos have better receivers with the exception of Hernandez at tight end who is better than Tamme, their O lines, and running backs are a toss up... I just think the Ravens will find Tom Brady a year older, and the Patriots that struggled in wins against several teams including the Jaguars will show up and lose at home. Next bus stop-- New Orleans.

People have been saying all year fix the "O" line keep Joe on his feet and we win. Well guess what Joe has been protected and what happens -- WE WIN.

How elite did manning look on his butt, how MVPish being chased making bad decisions and giving us the ball back. It starts with the "O" and the"D" line. Harbaugh needs to rethink his dog house.

The only negative I saw like Cam, Caldwell is much to predictable. He doesn't call a good game. Thank goodness Joe is getting protection and all these guys are jelling.

The ravens are the best team in the NFL. I don't care what the pundits say and don't care what their point spread is, blah, blah. We are going to the big dance...

Been saying McKinnie should have been playing since the preseason. The way I see it he could have made the difference in 3 of our losses and the Patriots would be coming to Baltimore. But I guess this is the next best thing.
