Ben can't outduel Tim Tebow and Tomlin once again has his team ill-prepared.

I'd probably prefer the Texans though since Schaub isn't anywhere near the big game QB that Brady is.
I would rather see the Ravens play the Texans. The Texans are weaker than when we last played them. The Ravens stronger. Plus, Houston better place to play IMHO.


However, after tonight's game, I think we can beat either team.

I'm really looking forward to Ray Lewis crying again next week, but only because his career is over at the hands of the Patriots.

They're not going against Eric Decker, Thomas and Tamme next week. Gronk, Hernandez, Welker, Lloyd, Branch and Tom.

Every Ravens fan is going to bring up the fact that they beat them earlier this season, but the Patriots don't lose in their house this time of year - they just don't. Sorry, Ravens fans, the AFC Title game is where John Harbaugh's career will ultimately peak. He'll be the next Andy Reid - 4 AFC title games, no Super Bowl victories and eventually washed up and coaching the Chiefs.

S'ok, we all know it's coming.
Did you think the Ravens would win tonight? Have any chance at all?

BTW: The Ravens lost in NE last year-due to a dropped TD and missed FG. Those were the differences in that game. Flacco beat Brady. Both Lee Evans and Billy Cundiff are gone. Brady will be the one crying on Monday--sorry to disagree.

Agree with SteelersCan on that 3rd and 7 call. Turtle ball doesn't get it done. You got to play to win.

Yep. Flacco outplayed Golden Boy by quite a bit last year. Not his fault that Lee Evans couldn't hold onto a pass that he put right in his hands and that Cundiff sucks. The Patriots have won as many postseason games by dumb luck as anything else (Tuck Rule, John Kasay giving it to them on the 40-yard line after booting a kickoff out of bounds, the "hot potato" play against San Diego in 2006, etc., etc.). It's the ESPN talking heads who suck their dick 24/7 who have built them up into this "unstoppable juggernaut."

Don't believe the hype.

Yes Baltimore played well.

Yes Peyton played so-so.

But most of all, that _enver D during that 70-yd bomb to Jones was, as comic book guy would say, the WORST. DE-FENSE. EV-ER.

Oh, you aren't going to bait me into this one. Nice try.

I thought the Broncos were going to win, but I didn't think it was going to be a blowout.

Regarding last year, do you know what they call almost winning? The Ravens' secondary without Webb is bad and Cary Williams isn't going to be able to cover Gronk or Welker, whomever Harbaugh decides is a great fit for him.

The Pats started the year off slow but are now the best team in football and I'm sorry, Ray Lewis is playing like absolute shit but is being praised by the media because it's his 'last ride'? No, fuck that. I'm going to call a spade a spade here - he's making tackles 8 yards down field and getting praised for doing so. If our Linebackers were making tackles 8 yards down field we'd be discussing a serious problem that our defense has.

I'd love to see Flacco head into Foxboro and win in the playoffs. I'd also love to win the lottery tomorrow, but let's shit in one hand and wish in the other.

The Broncos #2 Defense sure played like number 2 throughout the entire game. Manning's three turnovers sure didn't help their cause either. Trindon Holliday seemed to be the only Bronco that wasn't sleepwalking throughout the entire game.

Look, I think the Pats are certainly going to be favored over the Ravens. But, I think the Broncos are a better team than the Pats.

I discount the Ravens win over the Pats earlier this year. Replacement refs-in Baltimore etc. (I do think the the FG was good though.) It will be a great game.

My point is that its not going to be lopsided. I was surprised to be both AFC games have lines of 9 1/2.

I just cannot stand Brady or Bellichek. I would rather see the Steelers in the SB. Steelers are a legit smash mouth team.

This sums up the Pats and Brady....
