Well the Ravens blew out NE at Foxborough last year in the playoffs.
The Ravens haven't been blown out of a single game this year. They almost beat NE on the road.
They beat the defending champion Saints, they beat Pittsburgh in Pittsburgh. Flacco is now 7th ranked QB in the league, slightly ahead of Ben, last I looked.

Let's face it the Steelers don't match up well at all against the Pats and unless the Pats lose before they meet the Steelers, the NE game would likely mean the end of the season for the Steelers.

Ben was rated 5th as of this morning in all of NFL.... and you Baltimorons only got lucky in Pittsburgh for the fact that Ben wasn't there.

Who cares what the stinkin' media thinks? Losing to 4 playoff teams definitely means that we deserve to be overlooked. Obviously we need to step our game up a notch come playoff time. I think we are peeking at the right time. As long as the coaching staff keeps going after people instead of holding back, we have as good a shot as anyone else.

I think our media downfall is that we had 3 BIG games....NE, New Orleans, and the Jets...all on evening prime time TV...and we lost all 3 of them..........That said...we still should be getting more media coverage than we are
um stop being a fool, they didnt have the best quarterback to ever play in that game, if u remember, or did u become a fan until after we won our 6th?

im pretty sure u are like one of those new orleans scumbags that jumped on the bandwagon at the start of 2009 and said katrina this, katrina that.

Glad to hear from a parallel universe where the Ravens won the AFC North this season

Nice cite to statistics - ask any head coach or personnel guy in the NFL other than Harbaugh or Ozzie whether they would want Roethlisberger or Flacco on their team in a playoff gaem - you and i both know the answer to that question

Not only that. His stats are wrong. Ben finished higher than Flacco statistically again.
I knew Boob Jr was probably still lurking around even though he said he wouldn't be posting here after he took his lumps for losing in Baltimore with the division on the line. Oh, and what QB fumbled that game away.... That's right, Joe Drool.

How's 2nd place feel?
