The Ravens would've been in the Super Bowl if they didn't gag like they always do. If they're so good, then they wouldn't need home field to beat the Patriots. You gotta deal with the hands you're dealt, and they couldn't follow through. True to Baltimore tradition of postseason choking.

The Home Crowd won't stop Lee Evans from dropping that pass or Billy Cundiff from Wide Left.
Let's try to apply this to the Steelers, who, as a superior team, couldn't possibly be near fitting the crappy Raven mold:

Big Ben having two legs won't stop Tim Tebow from throwing that pass or Demaryius Thomas from Punk Secondary.


oops. Oh yea I guess every team has weaknesses. Yours is that you can't beat the browns without #7, ours is that our offense is pretty much automatically -20 pts on the road, on average.

EDIT: I just looked it up and we are -20.3 on the road versus our average at home.

Choking in the play-offs?

Isn't that a bit of the pot calling the kettle black... except that the kettle has been to two SuperBowls (winning one) in the past four years... while the pot has won nothing.

Please, make a better point. That was just... well... not a very good one.

I'm sure the whole post was read (it was read by me at least)...it seems to be you who's missing the point here. You tried switching up some words to attempt to compare the Steelers situation last year to the Ravens overall postseason situations, and they just aren't comparable. Have the Steelers choked before? Yes, but they also win big as well. Do the Ravens choke nearly every year? Yes. *crickets*

Guarantee we would've beaten Cleveland without #7 if our running game didnt have 5 fumbles. You take one or two of those back we probably score and we win. So therefore we couldve beaten Cleveland without Ben, but the running game fumbling 5 times fucked us.

I sense a lot of anger in this one. How anyone can talk about Ray freakin' Rice like that is beyond me.
