Sucks to lose that way. This is just how the Oilers used to do it to us.
that one hurt. i had a sizeable amount on the ravens as SB winners @ 7/1. wouldve hedged and made a few week wages if lee evans could catch!
I posted this is another thread but the Ravens loss was just like the way the Texans would lose circa 2009-2010. All that work to get into FG range and he shanks it! Stupid Kris Brown!
The big question now is how much does Ray Lewis have left in the tank? You can't defy age forever. This was a great chance for him to reach another Super Bowl. I don't think Baltimore will make it back to the Conference Championship game next year.
I feel worse for myself being subjected to a Pats Superbowl appearance. Brady love in the media is a little sickening. Imagine if it turns into an all East Coast Bowl???? BSPN will have a field day.
The Niners are going to have to win this game. The Superbowl rematch, Brady taking on the younger Manning in the House his big brother built. I wont be able to stomach it.
I get what you're saying gwallaia, but I dont feel sorry for them.... sons of guns!
To me this Pats/Giants Super Bowl isn't going to be hard to stomach so much as it will be uninteresting.
There is no real compelling storyline, the only things anyone will say about the Giants is "Well the Jets predicted a New York team in the Super Bowl...", or "Is Eli Elite? We will ask this question for the 46681681684654 time right after this!"
Whereas the Pats are looking at "Tom Brady is so awesome. How awesome is he? We'll tell you after this commercial break!", or "Will the Pats defense let them down?"
The last matchup was a great one because it was the underdog vs. the powerhouse. This time I guess you could make a slight case of intrigue for the "rematch" but honestly I don't see how the Giants lose this game unless they're too beaten down from the 49ers game.
At least the current Baltimore team playing in the old Baltimore teams' stadium had some interest level there. Frankly, the Giants and the Patsies mean nothing to me. Even as small as it may have been, at least with either the 49s or the the Ravens I would have had something to be interested in.
I doubt I'll watch the super bowl this year. The best of the commercials will be avaliable on the internet, so no need wasting my time watching them live.
I don't, you think they felt bad for us when Jacoby gift wrapped a TD for them?
It's not as if Baltimore would have won the game if he hit that FG.. I don't feel bad at all. Sure, it sucks for the team and fan base, but NE did just enough to put themselves in the position to win the game..It's never automatic !
love this game
Did Ravens fans honestly think they were going to win the game?
Same. No way I'm missing out on the Super Bowl.
Actually, I feel more bad for the Cleveland fans. This is like us having to watch the Titans make it to the playoffs over and over again, while your "expansion" team still sucks.
I don't care much for Baltimore for the same reasons I don't like the Titans.
Yeah, that's a weird situation and I feel the same way. However the difference is Baltimore had their team stolen too.
At least Houston and Clevelend got their new teams in an honorable way.
As far as the Super Bowl goes ... yeah I think I will be watching it.
Flacco doesn't deserve to win the superbowl
why? Did he kick your dog or something?
Yeah, just feel bad that Cleveland had to start all over while Baltimore was given a playoff contender.
I know it's not Baltimore's fault, but Cleveland hasn't been the same since that particular team left.
Plus I don't like Flacco.
If I am a Ravens fan I am disappointed in Falcco's progression as an NFL QB. He just doesnt make big time plays. And has bad pocket awareness IMO.
And he needs to shave that thing off his face. He looks ridiculous.
