Yes he did look bad.I was not impressed with flacco. *edit*. However when there was some throws, there were some throws...

Thing with the ravens .. Put the ball on the ground three times and recovered it each time. Plus no penalties ..that was impressive.

But a win is a win. No matter what .congrats.

However, we gave up what, 4-5 turnovers and only lost by a 2yard touchdown drive off of a miffed punt? I fully expected our defense to get 1 turnover, they've been doing that all season but instead they settled for mostly shutting down your offense. Which again, is not a knock on your team, just a testament to our defense.

Stop trying to make us out as underrating your team. Stop trolling us, I've been very civil with the ravens fans I've talked to, and I really really like the Ravens team. Please don't spoil that for me.

49ers Ravens Superbowl, your actions on this board will determine who I root for. So if you want 1 extra Texan Fan in your pocket, you better start acting right!!! Haha
I can admit I've been an A-hole for a majority of the posts here. Really, it was just to get people fired up. The way our O line was getting dominated, it's a miracle we didn't lose honestly. I was mostly frustrated because Flacco managed the game. No turnovers or stupid plays. His receivers dropped 5 balls and O line gave him no time. It's not his fault he's surrounded by a great run game (not so much Sunday) and a great defense. Numbers do not matter. Wins do. This is his second AFC championship. How many "crappy" QBs has that happened to. Ever the best QB in the league can be beat (i.e. Giants-Packers). The Ravens knew the Texans had a great defense and it showed. Our inability to score a TD from the 1 yd line and inability to get a first down on that drive better get fixed come Sunday. Pats D is no where near as good as Houston's. I'm done being a tool/douche/***stick and some other names that were used.

In fact, it was the Ravens that had to play mistake-free in order to win, and that's exactly what they did. (I don't think I ever saw a team go turnover and penalty free before)

You were supposed to have the 2nd best rush defense in the league, but Texans ran at will. Ray Rice was shutdown. Flacco barely got any protection, and when he did, he held on to the ball way too long. (at least he didn't force it into coverage like our guy though) And where was Terrell Suggs the whole game? Did he forget to suit up?

You have to admit, out of the 4 turnovers, 3 of them were gift wrapped for the Ravens.
I agree, but the one where Webb broke in on the ball was pretty nice. There were also 3 other sure fire interceptions that were dropped. No excuses, those plays have to be made.

NE does look amazing, but they ride and die with Brady. We were also told in '09 how easily we'd be beat but it ended up not even being a competitive game. I don't know how we'll win unless the pass rush shows up or Flacco quiets the critics with a break out game.

Our secondary was the only bright spot and Flacco was average. Again, he didn't have any time to throw with your pass rush and receivers dropped balls. Hard to have a great game that way.

Well, there was that Sanchez fella..... & this guy.

People forget Tom Brady wasn't always Tom Brady. For the first 5 years or so, that was the best team in football. Then it became the system, then it was about Brady.... I think (& this is just me) Brady didn't become "elite" until the last 3 or 4 years.

But the first 4 or 5 years or so, his best attribute was not turning the ball over & making a few plays every now & then.

QBs generally don't get a lot of time to develop in this league. If you're drafted on the first day, you're pretty much expected to start that year. Some QBs are ready for that, others not so much.

If you're on a good team, like Flacco, then you'll get the time you need.... but the media will push & the fans will push & you've just got to be tough enough to work through it.

Sanchez... will be interesting to watch. The team looks to be imploding & I'd like to see if the windbag can actually be a HC & pull it back together.

Maybe that's why the Ravens decided to pass on their own defensive coordinator. Sanchez has had some great games, but other times he lookes clueless (kinda like Flacco).

I honestly don't know who will cover Hernandez/Gronkowski this weekend. That's what I'm most scared of. We don't have to watch out for an Arian type RB atleast.

They definitely could win, but it won't stop me from typing. Too happy to be in the AFC Championship again, but the Texans will probably be here in the upcoming years.

Ravens won this battle, but the Texans took their manhood with that 4th and 1 stop on the goal line.

Next time, you won't be so lucky. Enjoy it while it lasts, our boys smell blood in the water.
