Physically dominated and completely outschemed them from the first snap. It was an out and out demolition.
I was driving between the Mean Streets of Ellicott City and Hickory, NC, that day, so I missed being able to watch the game on the tube, but XM radio saved me! Almost drove off the road screaming at the top of my lungs when Ngata forced the Roeth fumble and recovered it (beginning of the 2nd half, IIRC). I could sure use another dose of that this weekend!:ww:
Man that's fun to watch again! The entire team was in destroy mode from the first snap to the last. And it all started with both OL and DL just completely dominating. Would love to see a repeat Sunday to start the run down the stretch.
It sure was fun walking out of the stadium that day. Hope to repeat it this Sunday!
One of the funnest games I've ever watched as a Ravens fan. Completely wrecked them.
Man, was that fun to watch again!
It's hard to pick a favourite play! Reed blowing up Ward was beautiful. So was JJ! The long passes to Boldin and Dickson were as well.
It was the happiest day of my life.
(but don't tell the missus ;))
I cannot get enough of the Haloti hit on Mendenhall at the 1:15 mark and beyond. Haloti is barely moving forward. The devestating hit is basically a result of pure mass. It is like getting hit by an MTA bus moving at 5 miles an hour. The fumble and recovery were just icing on the cake.
Total destruction. I hope for an encore on Sunday.
Outstanding video - thanks for that.
Thanks for the correction! The video screen on my XM radio ;) must have been transmitting a blurry image!!!
Where in Hickory? (PM if you wish/care.) We're renting there while we build a house across the river in Granite Falls.
And my deepest sympathies on the loss of your good friend. In a bit of coincidence, I had lurked on the SunSpot board back around the time of the Ravens Super Bowl run, and found out one of the posters there was a good friend with whom I played soccer in the MD Major Leagues for a number of years. He stopped posting at one point, and many posters asked about him. I finally signed up to post and had the unfortunate duty to let them know he had passed.
The throw Joe makes at 2:27 or so is just spectacular. Into triple coverage. God, what a glorious day that was! And after an offseason of chirping by those asshats, as well. They deserved that beatdown!
Wow, what a game that was! I remember I couldn't believe what was happening and the Steelers just seemed so incredibly hapless. It is a rare event to see a score differential that large when our two teams play. The Ravens were on fire that day!!
Wow!! That felt good. The Mighty Baltimore Ravens, Shitsburgh was so quiet, i was King for a Week. Had 13 dumbass wearing Ravens Gear for a Week. Damn i loved that game. Let those Black Jerseys Rain A Raven Beatdown on those Sqeelers again.
That is a great collection of clips from that game.. man, Rice had some epic runs there! This is what happens when everyone shows up.
