    Just realized that if the Ravens lose today, Flacco will join the elite club of losing back to back championship games.

    Flaccochez!

    That being said, GO RAVENS.
    I just try to be myself, whatever that is. I don't think about how I'll be remembered. I just want to be consistent over a long period of time. That's what the great players do.

    Does anyone else just really feel bad for Tony Gonzalez?

I would kill for a ****ty second half in a championship game at this point, because at least it's a game we haven't even seen since 1992. 1992. Do you remember what you were doing in 1992? I sure don't. And some here have the audacity to knock Ryan's accomplishments out of pure bitterness of being 100% dead Long...I mean Wrong.

    Of all the back and forth over Jake Long and Matt Ryan, that's by far the funniest line.

    That's great and all, but as I said in another post, no one is going to remember any of what Jake Long and the Dolphins or Matt Ryan and the Falcons did years from now if neither team wins a Super Bowl. As far as bitterness, there's no bitterness, we're just pointing out Matt Ryan's lack of postseason success is all. If Matt does end up leading his Falcons to the Lombardi Trophy in the next few years, I'll be the first to give him props. Until then, he'll be known as a QB who can't get it done in the big games.

    Another POV

    IMO, considering the offensive goose egg Matty pitched in last season's playoff, even before this season's meltdowns... vs Flacco's several divisional championships, playoffs every season and his then 6-4 vs 0-3 Instant Death Game performances, last year if not before then, the discussion should have organically shifted to: "should we have traded down, loaded up -or grabbed Long and traded up ahead of the Ravens to snare Flacco?"

    Since with Ryan vs Long, Ryan @1 vs Flacco @18 both involve the luxury of hindsight, knowing what we know now about rising to the occasion with his back to the wall, out-dueling Peyton and Brady two weeks running, a Lee Evans screwup on a perfectly thrown endzone pass preventing his team from a repeat SB appearance , at this point we could as easily debate whether we should have not screwed around and grabbed Flacco @#1.

    Dude just played in the championship game.

    If I could remember what that guy in your avatar did all these years after not winning a Super Bowl I might advise you to change it to avoid being any more of a hypocrite.
