Ravens had the Super Bowl on a silver platter.. and they blew it, again. let's run down some of the breaks the Ravens couldn't capitalize on.

this was by far the weakest AFC playoff field in years. the Ravens finally got to host a playoff game and get a bye.. they were about as healthy as can be.. they got to play a 3rd string rookie QB led team... they avoided having to play the Steelers (0-3 postseason record).. No Peyton Manning led Colts to deal with this year... they faced the Patriots when Brady had one of the worst playoff games of his career. not to mention this is probably the weakest Patriots team to make the Super Bowl in the Brady era. most important of all, they only needed 14 yards to reach the Super Bowl and couldn't get it in

throughout the season they had an easy schedule, benefited from favorable calls week after week, beat their nemesis twice, got the #2 seed.... AND STILL could not get to the big game.

that's gotta suck.. hard to imagine all the stars aligning for two straight seasons.

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.
So you come here to talk shit after you lose? Novel concept. Oh, that's right, you already won 2 "Super Bowls" this season by beating the Steelers, didn't you? My bad. When do they get fitted for their rings?

Nevermore nails it - Those of us who believe the Ravens "lost" to New England are missing the point

Ravens only "lost" on the scoreboard - according to The Baltimore Sun the Ravens were once again the best team in the AFC

For the second straight year, the best team in the American Football Conference will not be playing in the Super Bowl.

Blowing playoff games the past 2 years is definitive proof of the Ravens superiority to the AFC teams that have gone to the Super Bowl

Well for that matter, the team with THE NUMBER ONE DEFENSE IN THE ENTIRE NFL won't be there either.

So I guess it's sort of a push, huh?

I do not think anyone (certainly me) is posting that the Steelers were the best team in the AFC at the end of the season - my point is that attempting to justify how good the losing team really was is a laughable exercise in denial

But congrats on once again riding your hobby horse about how overrated you think the Steelers defense is into any thread - surprised you did not reply to my post by working in that Arians was shafted on the verge of creating a top tier offense

I agree. The best team in the AFC would not choke (especially twice in one game, in a mere seconds). The Ravens deserved to go to the division championship, no doubt. Why can't they live with that? They lost a close game to a quality team. But nooooooooo the Baltimore mentality perpetuates. The "premiere" local newspaper prints that garbage? The thing is, the fans here believe it. Just because they show up it is their divine right to win. If they don't it is not their own fault. Robbed, stolen, ripped off, etc.

That article is stupid. The funny thing is, I can't imagine any other newspaper on the planet printing that, except that rag the Baltimore Sun. I kid you not, that is the mentality here.
