    Yea, just offering my 2 cents. FWIW, we should be favored by 3 or 4 at most.

    I expect a tough game, no gimme by any means. I think Ravens win.

    Colts won't score more then 10 points next week.

    Seems like every time we've faced them in the playoffs recently, they've gone in with one of the worst ranked run defenses and we think we're gonna run right over them. Then they morph into the 85 Bears for one week and we struggle to get 80 on the ground.

    Really hope Rice and Leach chew them up and spit them out, but don't think it's a given. Pagano will have something up his sleeve to get after Flacco too. Still think we grind it out though for the win.

    Playing on a neutral field, maybe.

    Playing in Baltimore, 6.5 seems about right, maybe even a little low (IMHO).

    Of the 12 playoff teams, the Colts have both the worst offense and the worst defense (based on points scored). They are the only team in the post-season with a negative point-differential. They're 30th out of 32 in rush-defense.

    This is a game we should win. It probably shoudn't be that close, but in a one-and-done series, anything can happen.

    I feel good about our chances with Ray, a rested Sizzle, Pollard, Reed, Ellerbe, Ngata against The Colts. They have some players, like the Hilton kid. He's explosive, Fleener, and of course the old crafty, still dangerous Reggie Wayne. On defense, they have Mathis/Freeney, Vonta Davis, Bathea...and...that's about it. I think we'll win this.

    They will stack the box on defense and force Joe to beat them. I think Joe will, but I am a lot more worried about this game than a lot of fans, who almost seem to think it's a gimme...

    Not saying it's a 100% lock, but it's close.

    Not sure how the Ravens have consistently gotten lucky with our first round playoff matches in the Harbaugh/Flacco era, but hell I'll take it!

    Dolphins, Chiefs, Texans sans QB, and Colts were all not real playoff caliber teams. The Colts stink, honestly. And to be completely truthful Luck hasn't been all that great. I love the Pagano story and all, but they're not a real threat. They will be in the coming years, but not this year IMO.

    What will the plan be when Flacco get's outplayed by a rookie QB, at home??

    If the Colts are able to stack the box and stop the run, Flacco will give away another game with an ill timed fumble and interception.

    I think the return of their head coach from cancer treatment gave them plenty to play for. And Houston seems to have lost their way. Neither will be the case next week.

    I'd take the Colts if I was betting the game. I see the Ravens winning on a late field goal.

    I dunno about that; they've been scoring points against every opponent. I think the Ravens will need to match scores to win this one at least in the 20's.

    If the Ravens can elimate big plays (long throws to Hilton & Wayne & special teams returns) I would be floored if the Colts scored two TD's.

    Take a look at Luck's stats the last half of the season and you'll see he is under 50% completion rate and has a bunch of picks (against some subpar defenses).

    If the Ravens can play their old style defense (stop the run & don't give up big passing plays), then I'm seeing a long day for Luck.

    I think the sky is the limit for Luck, but he's a couple years away from prime time.
