The BEST part of the Rats loss...
 
is that all the Rat fans keep saying how wonderful Flacco played and that he will lead them to the bowl next year.

Stupid fans...Flacco only threw for 216 yards (sorry, meant 316) against a team that has given up an average of 411 passing yards this season.

Seems to me that Flacco is well below average and the Rats are happy with that!

Browns once, Browns always.

EDITED to correct Flaccos unimpressive numbers.

Apparently you read a stat line as well as you D contains Tebow.

Flacco. 22/36. 306. 61.1%. 2/1.

Would have been 3 TDs if Evans holds on to a perfectly thrown pass. Would have been bigger yardage if Cubdiff makes a chip shot.

You and all the talking heads can't believe it but Flacco played lights out. The O line, receivers and kicker were the reason for the loss.

Try to get your facts right before you talk smack.

And while you're at it, the Ravens are technically an expansion team and tge Browns franchise is the same it always was with a couple years when the franchise was suspended.

The players were once the Browns. The franchise never was.

I think Flacco silenced his critics and played a very good game.
And if Evans had clamped down on that pass, Flacco's stats would have included a third TD pass as well as a "game-winner" that would have put them in the SB.

I'll never be a Ravens fan, but I AM a fan of good football and like it or not, the Ravens played a good football game and should have won it.

the best part of the rats loss is they will live with that "just if" and "woulda, coulda, shoulda,..." for the rest of their lives.

it will haunt them and burn in their guts forever. they were so close to their dream, had it in their hands, and completely dropped it. had that one second, that one instant ended differently, they couldve achieved the glory they so desire.

the other good part is that the patriots didnt win that game. the ratbirds handed it to them. the patriots know they are lucky just to be there and at some point with a horrible defense that luck will run out (just like it did in 07).

:applaudit:

i actually thought Flacco played well too. His stats were also better than Brady's.
That last pass should have been caught for a TD.....that was on the receiver.....that was thrown PERFECTLY.

What i do have a problem with is how Harbaugh pushed his coach.

I think Flacco played against a pathetic defense and had a good game. Don't start giving Count Crappo too much credit.

That's the point. He had a good game, made some nice throws and was unlucky with what other guys of the ofense did. But had he played "lights out" and "lights out" is meant to be in a way that other QB's do, he should've picked that defense apart...

That's right. Don't give him too much credit. He led his team to a sweep if the AFCN, beating the Squeelers twice... Once an embarrassing beat down and the second a two minute drill in your house against your fans and defense. Then he didn't choke away his first postseason game like some other team we know. Beat the Texans and ran another two minute drill in the AFC championship game on the road finishing it off with a strike to lee Evans and leaving his kicker in perfect field goal range.

Yeah, he pretty much sucks. I'd keep going with that.

I think Flacco had a pretty good game. I think had Lee Evans caught that ball at the end, we'd be hearing about the newest member of the elite QB's. I'm not saying he is anywhere near that list, but that's what the media would make it out to be.
