Mike and Mike just predicted Ravens win and Flacco as the MVP. Reason was that no quarterback has ever put up 8 TDs and 0 INTs in the playoffs and not won the Superbowl and been named MVP.
Some don't want Flacco to get a ring. Others want the 49ers to win because it makes their team look better.
A couple of Ravens fans (none being me) have been having a running debate with Texan fans over the various rankings of the playoff QBs:
The thread started before the playoffs...so (if you have the time) it is interesting to see how the perception of Schaub (down) and Flacco (up..sorta) has changed as the playoffs have transpired.
Most seem reasonable in their analysis of Flacco...with many now giving him the respect he's earned. But their is also a very vocal segment that still sees Flacco as some sort of recipient of a great defense, and therefore really is no better than Schaub. They seem to place an inordinate amount of stock onto Flacco's (and the Ravens') horrific performance in Houston earlier this season.
And here is a general discussion on the Ravens and Texans...in particular in regards to their respective games against the Patriots.
Many Texans fans are being reasonable and giving the Ravens credit/respect. But some are not. Again, I think for those that are not prepared to give the Ravens/Flacco credit, it goes back to how they demolished the Ravens in October and are now having a hard time understanding how that team is representing the AFC in the Super Bowl. I guess that is somewhat understandable...
Not that anyone accepts his opinion (he's a moron), just really funny how he's running out of excuses and won't admit his own stupidity
Predictably, Redskins fans are whining and moaning about the Ravens for the most part.
It's all the same B.S.: Smack about the fans being "whiny", claiming that Baltimore is an inferior city and/or has an inferiority complex, the whole "Ravens are the stolen Browns" tripe, calling Ray Lewis a "murderer", etc., etc. A few took issue with the Ravens team colors (Really? Because I find burgandy to be very depressing myself). They seem genuinely shocked that Ravens fans carry a grudge for Jack Kent Cooke trying to block the NFL's return to Baltimore.
And they seem to love to drone on and on about the Redskins' "history" and their "national fanbase", both of which they claim Baltimore and the Ravens lack. But if we include Colts history (which there is no reason why we shouldn't), I'll take Unitas and Lewis as being more influential legendary players than anyone who has ever wore the Redskins uniform and the '58 Championship and '00 Purple Reign Defense as being better teams and championship games than anything the Redskins have given us.
All I can say is that it must suck to be irrelevant for most of the past two decades where your greatest accomplishment has been going one-and-done in the playoffs and losing your star QB in the process. If the Ravens win this Super Bowl, the Redskins will have a grand total of one more SB win than us, and none since the Senior Bush administration. Say what you want about the Steelers, but at least they have some history to legitimately brag about, albiet annoyingly. The more Redskins fans insist it's the Ravens fans who have the inferiority complex, the more obvious it is that they are the ones who are suffering.
Sorry--grew up in Southern MD when the Redskins were the only team in the area, so I have to hear all the time from Redskins fans. Never could stand that team. Baltimore was "my city" where my family grew up and I always identified with everything about it. DC, on the other hand, was the place I would go on class field trips every other year, and I had no interest in rooting for any of its teams.
Redskin fan need something to do or complain about. How about that coach who lets his players decide if they can play hurt or not? Redskins, on a Raven forum with the Ravens going to the SB. Unbeleivable that they need to talk about the Ravens or Baltimore, they have way to many problems elsewhere.
