Joe Flacco, 9-5 and Superbowl not ELITE ENOUGH FOR YOU?

7 ROAD WINS NOT ELITE ENOUGH FOR YOU?

This year..

John Harbaugh > Jim Harbuagh

Joe Flacco Superbowl MVP > Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, Colin Kaepernick!

Dedicated to all my folks in San Francisco for the morning after they came down to REALITY (what did they think a young and inexperienced team with a young and inexperienced QB would actually win the big dance? Were they SERIOUS?!) ..

Ravens football is about LOVE and true RESPECT. We won against three of the best teams in football because we loved the game, we loved our fans, and we had love and respect for our opponents. The haters gossip and mash their teeth but for what? What does all the hate get you? NOTHING. What does love get you? A SUPERBOWL WIN! So lets see, Broncos were 8.5 favorites, New England were 8.5 favorites, even Niners were 3.5 favorites.. what happened there? A lot of silly people lost a lot of money

Don't doubt the Ravens, we LOVE this game enough even to respect our own losses. We TRUST in GOD enough to be thankful for just the opportunities to play. WE are the team folks should bandwagon on, not a bunch of over-hyped hater teams. I am sorry to Denver, I saw y'all fans crying on the TV and YouTube, that was us Ravens and myself last year. We've been there, that is why we respect you. My hats to New England, you had a phenomenal season. The unfortunate reality is so did Ravens. To the Niners? Y'all are just a young football time, which scares me. We will see plenty of y'all in the future. Then again, not if Alex Smith EXPLODES in Arizona

Hey Moss?Jerry Rice called laughing hysterically that you thought you were better than him, even Tony Gonzales is snickering on that one. Hey Culliver? How are you going to be such a bonehead as to openly and unrepentantly DISS part of your OWN FAN BASE? That was embarrassing, they jinx themselves all media week with silly trash talking. Maturity goes a long way. Ravens used to be the same kind of immature team until John Harbaugh came around, hopefully Jim can bring similar discipline to their lockerroom.

Ed Reed. YOU GOT ANOTHER PICK IN YOUR HOMETOWN AT THE SUPERBOWL! CONGRATZ to one of the ALL-TIME greatest safeties. Ray Lewis you finished on top like Elway, such a rare fate which can only come from the Grace of God. Folks just hate because they don't know you, they don't relate to your struggle, but I can, and folks like us know whats up to be like Joseph in Egypt. GOD prevails, destiny and blessings are revealed. What will the NFL do with out our own Jesse Jackson?

Thanks for stopping by

My question is why?
I'm just passing through unashamedly to gloat. I've had many ups and downs so I wanted to celebrate. Hey, my teams don't have so many Lombardi trophies lying around we can't count them on a single hand like y'all, let the underdawg get it every once in while yo ;)

Plus Steelers fans are being poor sports and obnoxious about it, like how long it took Flacco with a SB win. How long did it take Elway? Oh right, he had to LOSE a few Superbowls. Flacco has won a play-off game in EVERY one of his starting seasons since a rookie. He has more road wins than any other QB in post-season history, he just beat two of the best QBs IN HISTORY, ON THE ROAD, AND DIDN'T THROW A SINGLE INTERCEPTION TYING WITH JOE MONTANA FOR 12-0 in the post-season. GROW UP.Facts don't lie, Flacco is elite by every single measure, period, and you and all the other haters just look silly right now, a bunch of sour grapes.

Hey I dig it, Steelers-Ravens is a sick rivalry, and I wouldn't DARE root for Big Ben in another Superbowl, HOWEVER, I know what kind of calliber player he is, I know what calliber team Steelers are, and so we RESPECT THEM. All I ask is you respect what Ravens have accomplished, because the rivalry has just effectively been equalized. Since Ravens came to Baltimore we got TWO Superbowls to match the TWO that Steelers got in that same time period. We're also 14-7 in the post-season and y'all are 14-8 since 1996 ;)

I would respectfully suggest that coming by to gloat is not going to get much respect for the Ravens - to the extent you feel a need to troll speaks more about your own insecurities about needing to be "respected" than Steelers fans being "poor sports"

As far as being one of "the haters" I posted this earlier today here:drink:

A lot of life is out of your control (what if Archie Manning had played for the Steelers and Bradshaw had played for the Saints in the 1970s - who would be in Canton then?) - if the Denver DB does not have a brain freeze at the end of regulation the question asked about Flacco would not be whether he is elite but whether the Ravens need another QB to win it all

But instead Flacco had one of the best QB post-seasons in NFL history

Questions I Never, Ever Thought I Would Have to Ask for $200, Alex

Did Joe Flacco just have the best playoffs of any quarterback we've ever seen?

Not joking. This is a conversation that absolutely needs to be had. The Flacchise has numbers that place him into that discussion, and if anything, the numbers might underrate how good he's been during these playoffs.

Let's start with the numbers, though, because they're staggering. Flacco finished the postseason having gone 73-of-126 (57.9 percent) for 1,140 passing yards with 11 touchdowns and zero interceptions. Eleven to zero. Only one other player since the merger has produced a touchdown-to-interception ratio equal to or better than that in the playoffs, and it's a guy who has a pretty sterling postseason reputation: Joe Montana.

Montana's 1989 season pretty clearly stands out to me as the greatest postseason run since 1970, but I've gone ahead and listed some other notable Super Bowl–winning postseasons that might put Flacco's big January into context:...

The article has a chart tat i could not cut and paste

Whatever adjectives you want to attach to Flacco are a matter of personal preference. I just know that there are a lot of "elite" quarterbacks who will never have a playoff run as good as the one Joe Flacco just delivered — and that labels often find themselves obstructed, for better or worse, by the Super Bowl ring on a quarterback's finger.

Yes he is! :wink02:

Peyton Manning, after living a full life, died. When he got to heaven, GOD was showing him around. They came to a modest little house with a pair of faded Colt's and Bronco's flags in the window.
"This house is yours for eternity, Peyton." said GOD. "This is
very special; not everyone gets a house up here." Peyton felt special,
indeed, and walked up to his house. On his way up to the porch he noticed
another house just around the corner. It was a 3 story mansion with a Purple and Black sidewalk, a 50 foot tall flagpole with an enormous Raven logo flag, and in every window, a Raven towel. Peyton looked at GOD and said, "GOD, I'm not trying to be ungrateful, but I have a question. I was an all pro QB, I hold many NFL records, and I even won a Super Bowl." GOD said, "So whats your point Peyton?" "Well, why does Ray Lewis get a better house than me?" GOD chuckled and said, "Peyton, that's not Ray Lewis's house, it's mine!

4 Then Ray Lewis was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted[a] by the devil. 2 After fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. 3 The tempter came to him and said, “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.”

4 Ray Lewis answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’[b]”

5 Then the devil took him to the holy city and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. 6 “If you are the Son of God,” he said, “throw yourself down. For it is written:


“‘He will command his angels concerning you,
and they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.’[c]”

7 Ray Lewis answered him, “It is also written: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.’[d]”

8 Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. 9 “All this I will give you,” he said, “if you will bow down and worship me.”

10 Ray Lewis said to him, “Okay!.’[e]”

Whether they admit it or not, they already do respect us, and have for some time, just as we admire what a great organization they are.

But they don't have to like us (nor should they), and pulling stunts like this makes the rest of us Ravens fans look pretty bad by association

Thank you for handing in your credibility badge. You just proved that A) Cocain-lace Heroinized Meth is your drug of choice.

B) You don't know what respect is.

C) you have 0 football knowledge.

In no worls is Joe Flacco better than Peyton Manning or Tom Brady. I dont even think he is going to have a better career than Kapernick.

It was a team effort; with the help of the officials to win the Super Bowl. Take your b.s. and go back to the ghetto.

And I know your kind. You ignore the facts when it is convenient to your cause, and you say childish things like "We wont miss the murderer" when you have ABSOLUTELY ZERO PROOF THAT HE MURDERED anyone.

Which is why I said what I did. Nobody can prove Roethlisberger raped anyone, and it would be childish to call him a rapist. Same with Ray.

It is hypocritical to the extreme to pretend that Ben is some upstanding role model beyond refute, and then make idiotic statements like you just made.

Another thing, Ravens fans need to stop using 1996 as a starting point. Your team wasn't an expansion team. You were moved in to Baltimore from Cleveland.

So by that definition the Ravens won 4 championships back before 1969. The superbowl era was not the start of the modern league championship. During the SB run there were three players that were still on the Ravens team that had played for the Browns. Three, one of them being the kicker (Stover). No coaches, no management. All different. Sounds like a total reboot. Other people claim the Ravens legacy should be that of the Baltimore Colts before they moved. If that was the case then they hold 4 championships as well. We are all comparing apples to oranges here. Even early Superbowls are in a different category than these are now. Back in the 70's when the Steelers and the Dolphins were dominating you stayed with the team you started with. There was no free agency. Into the 80's and even the early 90's you could expect problems if you wanted to switch teams. Some collusion between the owners is my thought on that, much like Baseball in the 80's. So a dynasty was much easier to build and keep together back then. And love or hate (don't care I wasn't alive yet) the 70's Steelers were a dynasty. However the NFL today is one of far greater parity and the era of free agency (and salary cap) has forever changed the game. In the current NFL it is far harder to win on a consistent basis than ever before. In the current era the number of SB's for the AFC North is 4; two for the Ravens and two for the Steelers.

I actually don't disagree with you on a lot of these points. It's complicated though because as you say, some will claim the old Browns records and some will claim the Baltimore Colts. I just feel you can't act like the Baltimore Ravens in 1996 were an expansion team and ignore that you were moved in from Cleveland. Yes the management and coaches were different when you won your first SB but then again, that's what happens when a team is built form the ground up from a rebuilding team which is what the Ravens did pretty much as soon as they started in B-more. That's all. SImple as that. The Ravens are a successful team and deserve credit for their win on Sunday night but I don't like the revising to suit an agenda. It would be like if Steelers fans wanted to wipe out or dismiss the team's shitty record from 1933-1971.

The free agency issue in the NFL now (pluses and minuses to it) has totally changed everything. This pains me to say but that is why I think the three in four years for the Pats nine years ago or so was incredible (I don't hate them like some people but I do think they run up the score on a lot of people and BB has a real nasty disposition and Brady is a whiner). Tough to see that happening again in the near future.

Congratulations. Why are you celebrating on the Steelers' forum? I'm fairly confident in saying that we didn't celebrate on your boards in '05 and '08. But, ya know, I could be wrong.

It's like you're trying to get the attention of Steelers fans. Well, Harbaugh was trying to get Tomlin's attention so I guess like headcoach like fanbase? Here's a tip, Ravens fans, we don't give a shit. We've actually won championships and don't have to celebrate like we're not going to be there again. But, stay classy Baltimore.

You're absolutely right that all fanbases have these kind of fans and you're hitting the nail on the head again that they're the younger fans as well. When we last won our title I wasn't on your guys' boards, but I'm a little disappointed that people felt the need to go and celebrate on a Ravens forum.

I might not like the Ravens, but I'm able to recognize and appreciate the fact they just won a title. That appreciation is quickly disappearing with threads like this though.

And I don't blame you. Try to keep in mind that MOST (if we define most as >50% lol) Ravens fans do not feel the need to gloat here after a win and look forward to what this win will do for the AFCN, aka best division in football the last decade.

Amen to that! Thing that sucks about that for any of the teams fighting for the playoffs out of the AFC North is the fact that because they play in such a tough division they never get the Number 1 seed or homefield (normally). Teams like NE and the Chargers and the Broncos and Colts have gotten them over the past decade bc of the lower quality of competition in their divisions. Let's face it too. No matter how good you are it is tough to win on the road in the playoffs.

And I don't blame you. Try to keep in mind that MOST (if we define most as >50% lol) Ravens fans do not feel the need to gloat here after a win and look forward to what this win will do for the AFCN, aka best division in football the last decade.

Amen to that! Thing that sucks about that for any of the teams fighting for the playoffs out of the AFC North is the fact that because they play in such a tough division they never get the Number 1 seed or homefield (normally).

Yeah but at the same time, look at this way, playing in a tough division prepares you well which is why our two teams usually can go pretty deep into the playoffs. Besides even though I bet it would been neat sentimentally wise for the Ravens to win the AFC championship at home, there's something to be said about beating the Patriots in NE to win the conference. Hell you guys should have done it last year which is frankly why even though I had NE winning the game, I wasn't surprised at all when the Ravens won the game.

We have the best rivalry in the sport. Football as football should be played. I have to admit while I hate the Ravens(hey it's law basically heh), I do grudgingly respect yall because we both value much of the same things in our teams.
