Default Re: Ratbirds - Got what they deserved

They were mediocre, so were we, so were the Jets. Yet the Jets beat the Bengals and Chargers and the Ravens thrashed the Patriots, teams who supposedly did "deserve" to be there? Nonsense. If you're gonna look at the regular season, the Bengals dominated both of us, the Chargers had 11 wins in a row, and the Patriots were the favorites in the wild card game. The Ravens' lack of a passing game (might be the worst WR crew I've seen in a while) came back to bite them in the ass; the Colts have a fast defense and can stop the run well when they focus on it. Their defense actually did OK, the offense was just inept. Overall, I think it is pretty stupid to say that they are anything less than an above average team.

Our losses to 4 bad teams were much more shocking, and are somewhat worrying. How does that happen? The Ravens may have scored only 3 points on the Colts, but we scored 6 points on the Browns. And it was an important game. Remember that.

Not the Ravens...they backed into the playoffs, pure and simple. We were actually playing better football AT THE TIME then they were, and so were the Browns for that matter.

The Pats are a joke, which is the main reason the Rats beat them.

Point doesn't change...the Ravens snuck in at 9-7 but they were not playing their best football at the time, and they never played at a very high level all year.

But... Ray Lewis is the greatest of all time... every time he tackles someone it's the greatest play of the week... he shits solid gold bricks... and Joe Flacco is by far the best quarterback in the league... to win a playoff game with a QB rating of 10% takes a skill we mortals cannot begin to fathom... and lest we forget... RAY RICE RAY RICE RAY RICE RAY RICE RAY RICE RAY RICE RAY RICE RAY RICE RAY RICE RAY RICE RAY RICE RAY RICE RAY RICE RAY RICE RAY RICE RAY RICE...

Flacco is two seasons away from being a backup.

Better than what? I am a Steelers fan, but it's just sad to see the things that other fans are saying, and wondering whether or not they actually believe it. Sour grapes, just kinda pathetic.

The teams were both 9-7. The Rats really only had one quality win all year. THEY lost to Cinci twice as well. And, most importantly, two weeks before the season ended, they lost an absolute MUST-win game against he Steelers. And then they managed to back into the playoffs...it's not sour grapes to properly assess a mediocre team as a mediocre team.

You're probably going to want to reassess your opinion, because i agree with you 100% .
