Boring Sunday....

I decided to pop in my RAVENS playoffs DVD.

The Denver game.

 

Oh my gawd what an amazing game !!!!!!!
I knew exactly what was going to happen and I STILL got excited and anxious and sat on the edge of the couch.

I even had to stand up for the RAVENS final possession in regulation and J.T.'s kick in O.T.

 

Ed Dickson actually had a decent game.  Ray Lewis played like his life depended on it.

Torrey ?  He was killing Champ bailey all day.  Watching Rice has me hoping and praying last year was a fluke.

 

I am not even sure Ed Reed was there that day but Corey Graham sure was !!!!  Kruger was having a great day too.

 

But most of all Flacco and the O-line was something to behold.  Simply amazing.

Flacco haters ignore this game I recon.

 

You know a game is good when you know what is going to happen and you STILL get the up and down emotions.

My opinion his worst game of that playoffs, even though he played well.  Flacco missed Torrey twice in the first two series for bomb TDs on Champ.  Torrey should have had like 5 TDs that game.

That is always a fun game to rewatch. It was great to finally see us have something go our way like that, every other year we would fall just short and there would be a drop or a fumble that would kill us. This time however, we hit it dead on on that last play and from there on, I was 99% sure that we were going to do it that year.

FWIW. I really really enjoyed the reg. season game against the Pats. It was such an emotional game for Torrey, but he lit it up and played his heart out. Personally, my favorite game ever for the Ravens

Agreed. I personally didn't think we played that well this game offensively, but splash plays really helped us out. I thought Caldwell was a bit conservative in his play calling and we seem to struggle late in that game. It was definitely a fun game to watch but certainly not well played overall.

I don't feel Flacco didn't get into that lights out zone until the 2nd half of the AFCCG throughout the SB. But before then i think our offense got by on splash plays.

To be fair though, no one makes 50 yard passes 100% of the time. Plus it was his first time playing in Denver and the altitude and cold air both affect throws. It's hard to adjust to new circumstances on the fly. 

 

Plus the Mile High Miracle was one of the pass deep passes in NFL history, so you know...

Dickson played pretty good throughout that entire playoff.

oher and mckinnie played great in that play off run.

its a shame they get trashed because it was decided castillo was allowed to change stuff that set the whole o-line back.

Still have that game on my DVR, pull it up and re-watch it once in a while. Hands down my favorite game ever (no, probably not their best, it ain't pretty but it's us, but still...)

Just how leading up to that game NOBODY gave us a shot, how arrogant the Denver fanbase was, and how despite the adversity (two return TDs!?!) our guys just hung in there and hung in there so tough.

 

Also, the look of sheer terror and disbelief on Jacoby's face when that bomb came down, and how he fielded that pass almost like a punt, was absolutely priceless.

Total awesomeness.

That made it a thing of beauty. Denver fans still thinking they got cheated out of a SB that year just makes the sweet taste linger.

Manning said Ed Reed shut down any deep option all game.


I remember reading late for work after that week and it said that Marshall Yanda squirted himself with a water bottle making his arms and jersey really slippery so they couldn't get a hold of him. That is probably the craziest thing I have ever heard a Raven do.

that game showed what makes joe special. on the road, vs the 1 seed, 2 return TD's given up, ridiculously cold, in mile high altitude, against the golden child peyton, everyone is hailing him as the GOAT and they swear up and down its just gonna cement his legacy when his broncos destroy us and go on to win the super bowl. 

 

but.. the return TD's didnt bother him, he went to work, and it wasnt pretty, but man it took some balls to throw the way he was in that game, and he was spot on with that ball enough to keep us going shot for shot with peyton and trindon holliday. 

 

of course it took some help from corey graham early on to keep up, but joe never flinched. 

 

when it looks like were let down again because of a 4th down drop(jacoby) we somehow get the ball back inside the 2 minute warning with no timeouts. we have 2 failure plays in a row, quick incompletion, and we were all scratching our heads at the 4 yard scramble instead of throwing it away.. but all it did was burn enough clock to keep peyton on the sideline. while were all wondering why he wasted all that clock, he steps up, [profanity deleted] back way lower than normal, throws up at a terrible angle, avoiding a certain strip sack, and the ball still sails possibly above the stadium, and perfectly into jacoby's hands. 

 

i think between the AFCCG and the super bowl, its a tie for joes career defining game, but that denver game certainly was joes coming out party, coming out to play with the big dogs.

I still remember virtually NO ONE outside of Baltimore gave us a chance.

 

I remember listening to NFL on Sirius radio driving home from work that week.

 

They were previewing all the games for that weekend.  When it came to Baltimore v. Denver the host said

 

"This game isnt even worth talking about "  ( that is an exact quote )

The panel all agreed.  Baltimore didnt stand a chance.

 

Funny thing was Monday was excuses excuses excuses...

It certainly was true, everyone loved telling me "better luck next year" leading up to the game. It was a glorious walk into work the next day. :)

I remember telling my friend when the playoffs started this would be the game to determine if we won it all. I said if we beat the Bronocs in the divisional no one would stop us. This was the game I was most worried about and even when we had to drive the field I still believed we could do it. We all know how this ended.

Everything was fine until you call out "Flacco haters."

No, I don't ignore this game,  or any other game. 

The problem is, first of all... that you're shocked the very talented Ravens offense(yes, the entire offense is talented.  Flacco doesn't "carry" them) had a relatively easy time scoring on a weak Denver defense.  How old is Champ Bailey?

Secondly... was this game more of an aberration?  an exception?  Or is this how you see Flacco perform week in and week out?  Because I sure don't see that Flacco that played in that Denver game very often.

And third... what was the true victory in this game?  Because I say it was the defense pretty much shutting down Peyton Manning and that very talented Denver offense.  (Remember... TWO of the Broncos touchdowns were on kick-returns)  And the Ravens defense actually scored one of the Baltimore touchdowns.

Was it an exciting game?  Sure.  But would I pick THAT game to embody Flacco's career?  No, I wouldn't.  But since you did... just look at the wide open touchdown that Flacco completely mis-threw that would have been Torrey Smith's 2nd in the first half.  Then look at Torrey's ACTUAL 2nd touchdown.... which was underthrown, and Torrey had to come back and out-jump the corner.  The receiver made an amazing play.  I can't say that was Flacco's doing.

The Ravens have made the playoffs 5 years out of the last 6.  And they've done it with Flacco as their QB, so I don't know why you are so defensive about it.  They're not going to make a change in the next 4 years.  He's the starting QB.  Sit back and enjoy it.  And hope for more games like that Broncos game, since you obviously think he played an amazing game that night.
