I hate not making the playoffs, but looking at this year's team I doubt we had any chance at making a Super Bowl run.  We just won last year which is a huge achievement.  Now we have a shot at the 16th overall pick.  Highest in years.

 

We don't have to go through the pain of watching a playoff loss to end our season.  It was bound to happen.  Now we get an early start picking through coaches.  Can't wait for offseason moves.

 

Hopefully all the bandwagoners and fair-weather fans have gone back to their caves!

Weird. I am excited as well. This puts our team in decent position to address our many needs. And trading up for that stud WR or OL is actually a realistic possibility for once.

I dont feel excited,but I have a feeling of content.The end of the 2013 season was like putting a suffering animal out of its misery.This offense was sad to watch to put it nicely and this defense gave up way too many fourth quarter leads.All of this had to do with vanilla play calling,bad coaching decisions and under utilizing our players as well as the players themselves.This offseasons gonna be huge and I think Ozzie finally puts the work in to finally get this team into a complete juggernaut and force to be reckoned with like in 2012(barring injuries-and post cam),offense,defense and special teams.Bring on the draft!

Excitement? Not so much.

Still in shock after 6 years of playoffs I don't know what to think. No playoff parties? Really?

That's just not something I'm use to. Already thinking about 2014. Just makes me think about the 'dry' season. Football will be over soon and they'll be airing golf and infomercials. In the meantime, I guess I'll cheer for AFC North Bengals. They deserve to win it all. I hope they represent the division well.

My thoughts exactly. We were going nowhere fast and it was actually painful to watch at times.

Fix it and move on, this season was never salvageable.

I could never root for a division foe lol. I'm excited we get the 16th pick. We have a chance to get one of the top WRs in the draft. I hope we get Mike Evans. His 6'5 frame would be awesome to have.

I'm a Ravens fan for life, and right now cannot find a good thing to say about this situation.  I'm just going to get ready for this to become the normal type of season for the Ravens as long as they keep up with the strategy of getting everything on the cheap and wasting tons of money on under-performers.  Add to that a pathological devotion to coaches who it seems would be hard pressed to be successful at the high school level, and the formula is set to repeat.

Exactly! My last 'break' was the lockout, playoff s Super Bowl with it deer pee and the disgruntled cheerleader, The Awesomeness that was SuperBowl then FA, The Draft, OTAs, TC and by the end of Sept this was going to be a long off season. The team is in a much better place to draft. Of course I will watch the playoffs and root for the Chargers, Packers and Saints

We don't have to watch no more terrible Ravens football for 8 months.

 

Whew...

 

Anyways, I always enjoyed the offseason signings, acquisitions, and draft better than the games.

 

Seeing Ozzie at work is like watching how Rome was built.

 

Ozzie did a great job the past 5-6 years into building a team that hasn't had a losing season for 6 years now.

 

We need to find the right coaches or something cause it's a shame to see all this talent go to waste like the Browns (5 Pro-Bowlers).

I am excited to see if we learn from the mistakes and weaknesses from this season going forward. Thankfully we have a very supportive owner and a great front office (unlike the Orioles).

 

I wouldn't say Gino or Shipley are gone but I would like them in more of a back up role to who ever we bring in....

It's nice to be able to root for playoff teams based on how much I like them rather than because they'll give the Ravens the best chance of winning.

I'm excited that it's over and at most I have to witness the overpaid quarterback  two more years in this uniform before he is cut.

Its a team sport dude. How many more games would we have won if we could have run the ball even a little bit? At least 3. By your logic, Ray Rice is the most overpaid and under achieving member of the team...yet you only grind your axe on Flacco?

I'm sort of excited to have a FULL off-season for our FO to assess/re-sign/replace players and coaches. For years we've been weeks behind the other teams, especially with coaching choices. We now have a chance to be in on the ground floor with personnel moves.

Excellent point, also gives a sense of hope that next year will be a better year than this. I'm actually relieved that it's over. No more frustrating losses or having a dozen heartattacks a game

I too am relieved that it is over.

In all honestly, and one needs to be honest with themselves, they were not good enough to keep rolling as they did last season.

I still say the Pats game was the start of the nail in the coffin.  Before it we were riding high thinking we were on a roll. 

After it, I was pretty well left with my jaw hanging wide open.  And from what I saw against the Bengals our team was merely trying the same old, same old.  It's like our coaching staff has no idea how to make adjustments as the game continues.

And Flacco just plain looked tired.

 

It will be fun to root for teams to beat the Pats and Broncos even though I think Seattle takes it this year.
