Let me see my thoughts of the game...

Super Bowl tickets $2500...Joe beating Luck, The Great Manning, Tom Terrific, and the tatted QB of the future...PRICELESS!

Anyone know where you can find the picture that I believe CBS had a couple weeks ago of Ray Lewis in front of a sign that says "Destination New Orleans?"

Amazing. I knew we were going to make it. If they were to make a movie about the team and this season, it would seem made up. We are the team of destiny. Praise the Lord!!!

Thank you Mr. Ray Lewis for leaving us with truly an amazing legacy. 17 years went by way too fast but the impact you've left will live in my mind and my heart forever. I'm proud to be a Ravens fan. Not because we're champs but because of the type of faith this team leads with. And it all molded in these last 17 years. I hope for the best in your next journey. Can't wait to see what legacy you leave behind next. Love this team, love Charm City. Congratulations

injuries, turnovers and lost of a leader, and was still able to win AFC North, outplay future Hall Of Famers Quarterbacks in back to back week and win the Super Bowl and make Ray Lewis final game a memory that most players only can dream about when they want to retire. Go Ravens, I am so proud to be a Ravens fan and now I'm wearing my Ravens t-shirt and black jeans. Black and purple!

It would take really, really long for me to write here everything I want to say about this game, the entire season, Ray, Flacco, Art, press...

Instead, just congratulations and a huge THANK YOU to our team. Celebrate, Ravensnation!!!!

Even though we won the game. It still saddens me to know that Ray Lewis will not be there anymore. The passion and the way that he was a leader of men probably will not be duplicated ever. When you think of Ravens you automatically think of Ray Lewis, just as when you think of Orioles you automatically think of Cal Ripken.

Even a "momentum" killer like turning out the lights couldn't stop the better team from winning. I love it!! There are just too many awesome feelings and storylines right now.

Not going to sit here and lie and say I knew the Ravens were going to win, once Pitta droppped that crucial 3rd down catch and the Ravens had to settle for a feild goal (crucial touchdown needed drive)I was like wow, SF wins 36-34... Just thank the gods no flag was thrown. Glad the Ravens won. #Ravensnation. Also no lights = game changer but really? The feild was still lit enough to play, you're grown menn, no excuse to not play.

It's easy to understand those who rooted for the 49ers to win are trying to find consolation. It's easy to understand they're trying to make themselves believe they were the better team. Nevertheless...
- statistics don't confirm that;
- and even if we allow to entertain for a moment the idea that they were the better team (they weren't) - who cares? What's important is who scored the more points.

They are a very good team and they gave us a heck of a fight, hats off to them. No wonder the nfl-scene will all be about how bravely they fought back and how the poor souls fell short (no doubt many will keep pointing to the flag that was never thrown) and no one will remember how they got washed away in the first half and no one will mention how that power outage nullified our momentum, no one will mention that their awesome pistol O kept firing blanks in the first half and was unable to produce less than 10 yards gain in 3 attempts at the end...
But that's fine. Let the popular hero be the 49ers and we get the Lombardi.

Deal.

"We're a resilient team. We've got a lot of resolve. That's why we won the game", Harbaugh said.

I completely understand why he said he is going to miss this team. Joe, Torrey, Q, Ray.... They all have talked about how tightly knit this team is. The team is unique and special as they went through so much and still percevered.

Great win, coach. See you at the parade.

OH, and a shout out to Mr. Lamarr Woodley and we all hope he's alive and all right - we can all remember him saying the Ravens would never win a Super Bowl in his lifetime.

Jim wants to talk about flags.. huh? Flacco gets hit late after he goes out of bounds... Chykie gets called for roughing the kicker.... bull. Plenty of no calls. How about the blatant PI on against Torrey when he had a TD on the right sideline.

Both sides were spared some justifiable flags. I like how the refs decided to minimize their impact on the game.

You mean like that flag that wasn't thrown on the late hit to Flacco on the sideline? Yep. I think when you put that in with that idiotic call on Chykie, you're right. Those refs missed a few in our favor, and shafted us in the AFCCG. So they owed us at least one.

cute excuse for losing i didnt see jim jumping up and down screaming like a 4 year old child when chris culliver held torrey smith on what would have been an easy touchdown, he hit him 30 yards down the field and held onto his jersey when he was nearing the goal line, goes both ways and its called football, perhaps look at your inability to stop joe flacco in the first half, or jacoby jones 108 yard kick return and blame the loss on that, the only reason they didnt get completely blown out of the water is because half the stadium lights "magically" went out and you should be thankful for that, have fun planing your offseason while we celebrate this much deserved super bowl victory baby!

We have some decent receivers but we need Boldin back next year really bad Doss is cool I still don't think he is ready. If Jacoby would learn to catch with his hands we would be unstoppable.

When the 49ers could not complete the 2 point conversion I became optimistic about the outcome. When Pitta dropped the 3[sup]rd[/sup] down conversion and we could not stop #7 and #21 on their last drive I became very pessimistic. When we made that goal line stand I was in disbelief. When we tackled #19 to end the game I couldn’t move, I didn’t cheer; I just exhaled, high-fived my son and shed a few tears. Man I love this team!!!

What an epic game!! Super Bowl Champions!!!

All haters line up to kiss our Super Bowl Ring!!!!!!

Luv the win but don't like the blackout nonsense. 84 minutes sitting isn't good for any offense in any football game!!! A thorough apology by the nfl to both teams but especially to the Ravens is in order. Glad we pulled it out and would have rather seen a pure game and not one affected by the foul electrical issues in a stadium dating back to my childhood. C'mon man.... nfl you can do better from here on out. Get some electricians to check out all future superbowl sites. In my opinion the score would have been 56 to 6 absent the 'power surge'. Much more decisive than it was. And if you think the power went out by accident I got a bridge I want to sell you.

It is something about teams losing to the Ravens that turn them in to cry babies. The 49ers pundits do not want to face the facts that there were many calls that they did not give us during the game. I was screaming on the holding the 49ers offensive line were during most of the game. At least 3 runs where the 49ers got substantial yards were because of some serious holding on their front line. Many will say that the 49ers are a better team because of their players. I will just say that they may have better players on their team but it does not make them a better "TEAM"! If you break down the players on the eagles, they had a very good list of players but they never played as a team.

That was a good game and I'm very proud and happy to be a fan of the Baltimore Ravens. This was a personal and special win for me because my last name is Raven. So, you can imagine that I went to bed with a smile on my face! I have to admit though, my fingernails are gone!! Lol!! Go Ravens #1
