Default Hats off to the Ravens...

Hats off to them. They weren't the most talented team today (talent doesn't always win...experience goes a LONG WAY..experience WINS in this league and we lacked it), but they definitely were the smartest (0 TOs not one penalty) and you can tell the past playoff experience and veteran leadership REALLY served them well today.

I'm actually proud of my team. Teams don't usually break through and win it all when they first get in....you have to taste defeat (and get that postseason experience) before you get the ring. Despite a loss the Texans represented this city very well and we'll have to be reckoned with next year. Also the experience we gained today will only pay dividends in the future... Texan fans don't fret, the corner HAS BEEN TURNED

And hats off to Ray Lewis.. People can say whatever they want about what he did or didn't do in the past, but this league will miss him when he hangs up the cleats that's for sure. Who else is going to reach out to young players league wide the way that he does? you can tell EVERYBODY respects him regardless of what team he plays for. If the NFL had to pick captains to represent the entire league and not just a team..he would definitely be wearing a capital "C".

Oh yeah.. and don't get too worried Raven fans. I'm sure Rice will get back on track. His performance had more to do with Houston's defense than it did with Rice. This is no B.S. Houston has the BEST front 7 in the NFL.

I don't see it that way.. I think they'll beat the hell out of the Pats. Defense (as well as a running game) counts for something in the playoffs and the Pats don't have one (and their biggest weakness on that defense in the secondary... Flacco is going to get off as well will Rice) The Ravens offense will not play this bad against the Pats.

Like I've been saying since the game ended, no shame in losing just plenty of disappointment. We put the league on notice today. We're not that cupcake team everyone still thinks we are. Our D will punch you in the mouth and our O will run all over you.

Love Ray Lewis, Reed, Suggs, and Boldin. Will be screaming against the Brady's this next week. I don't see them beating NE though.

I'm not pissed at the Ravens. The Ravens didn't beat us, we beat us.

I hope the Ravens kick the dog **** out of the Brady Bunch next week.

Default Re: Hats off to the Ravens...

After our 2010 season, it irritates me that the Pats have a bad pass D and continue to win just because they got lucky many years ago on a 6th round QB. Getting tired of Brady making a bad team look good. Matter of fact, it's kinda like the Peyton Manning in that other division. Hope the Ravens knock the snot outta them.

Default Re: Hats off to the Ravens...

I'm willing to go all in saying this is the toughest team we will play the rest of the way. Difficult because there is a chance we could bump into the 49ers again in the SB this time (but one game at a time, have to get past the Pats first).

We beat the Brady's in their own house 2 years ago in the playoffs. We can do it again.

They have no defense to speak of, and our strategy is different playing them. Today we sat back and never really put the heat on TJ. I'd bet the gameplan was exactly as it played out on D for us. Sit back and bait him into some bad throws for INT's.

The gameplan against NE is passrush passrush passrush. The best way to beat Brady is to get in his face, and hit him all day long.

I think whoever wins this game on fox will be the team y'all face in the SB and after what Ray had to say today, y'all are the team I'll root for in this year's playoffs now that we're out or it.

Default Re: Hats off to the Ravens...

Man I dunno. The Gronk is a amazing player, he can beat a team by himself. Will be an interesting matchup. Ravens deff have the guys to slow down Gronk.

I give props to the Ravens of course. To hold onto a 4 point lead as long as they did deserves that. Had the Texans just fired off a few FGs they couldn't even get that.

Edit: Pulling for the Ravens though, that way I can say the team we lost to nobody else beat :P

I agree, we outplayed them, but they did the one thing that experienced, successful teams must do to win in this league: eliminate mistakes.

Zero penalties and zero turnovers is the mark of a savvy, playoff team. 4 turnovers is the mark of a young, talented, but inexperienced team.

I love the way Lewis and Reed play the game. True leaders and HOFers. But, they're dragged down by Joe Flacco at QB. On a lesser team, he would have gone David Carr by now. The Ravens need to stop kidding themselves and bring in another QB. Flacco won't win in Foxboro, this year.

They did fumble the ball at least 3 times and we fumbled twice. There were 5fumbles(if i remember right) they came up with 4 of them. The ball did'nt bounce our way. They made plays and we did'nt, they got the breaks and we did'nt. We had Jacoby on our team and they did'nt. Those are the reason's we lost.

I'll definitely disagree about talent. The most talented team won. It wasn't hard to see that. Ray still has some left in his tank. Texans put up a good effort but they were over matched.

The Pats offense looks unstoppable. The D is still suspect, but if the O clicks like that it's hard to keep up with them point for point.

That doesn't make sense. Didn't Flacco have 0 turnovers and throw multiple TDs? What else do you want? The NFL is about games won. This isn't fantasy football. This time of the year is where the real teams play. The Texans aren't near that caliber with Yates. Didn't Joe and the Ravens beat the Pats in NE????????? That doesn't matter though right?
