Well, as I sit here in the dark I am thinking about this season and especially the playoffs. I am looking for all this edition of the Ravens and the magical things that have happened the last two weeks. Wow.
I was crushed after Evans/Cundiff last year. And before that, I walked disappointed out of Heinz Field in Jan. 2009 hearing fireworks go off behind me. I know how Charlie Brown felt trying to kick the football...damn Lucy. What is it going to take to get to the Super Bowl? Like many of you, I have an emotional attachment to this club. Maybe more than what could be considered healthy at times. It's hard to get so close and see it slip away.
So now we find ourselves early on the day of the game. We are back. It's right here for us once again. I can't tell you why, but there is something telling me that although I fully expect a brutally gut-wrenching game (again), the Ravens will FINISH this time. As I type this I am listening to a John Denver song of all things and through the melody I am envisioning the last few seconds ticking off with white jerseys in joyous celebration. And I am seeing myself sobbing like a kid.

My wife commented tonight that I'm much more calm this weekend than most.
She's right. I'm very confident about tomorrow.
There's something special about this organization right now. And I'm not necessarily talking about winning the Super Bowl.
The Broncos win was a special thing. Just like what the Immaculate Reception did for the Steelers so too did this won for the Ravens.
We're poised for something very special right now. Now it's up to the players to make of happen.WARNING: This post may contain material offensive to those who lack wit, humor, common sense and/or supporting factual or anecdotal evidence.

I've posted it already, but to a man we are the better team overall comparing position by position. I don't see this team squandering this opportunity away. This is a game we know the Ravens can win. Let's finish this.
All I can say is that I'm probably the least nervous I've been before a game (playoffs or regular season) since I've been a fan.

I have been less nervous than usual the week leading up to and I usually always say "I'm not gonna even have butterflies leading up to the game"...but then I can't fall asleep the night before and I can't stop shaking the final few hours leading up to the game...I have the upmost confidence that we'll win this game, but I can't hide it...I am nervous.

It's like, after seeing what the Ravens did in Denver, you know they can do anything. Literally. It's just a question of will they? And that is something I can't control, so I guess that's why I'm calm.My Ravens Blog: Brittany Rants About Football

Do you guys remember that 2000 run? Every game had a magic play in it (most with Shannon Sharpe involved)
WC game -- Shannon returns a tipped ball 60 some yards for a freak touchdown
Divisional -- Blocked FG returned for a TD by Anthony Mitchell
AFCCG -- 96 yard TD to Shannon Sharpe
We got some magic last weekend. Can we keep it going?

The interviews of Ravens players on Fox right now shows the confident feel of this team. I feel really good about this match up. Brady will have a tough day.

LeBron couldn't get over the hump. Until he did. Elway couldn't get over the hump. Until he did in back to back years. No one ever said Kurt Warner couldn't get over the hump because he freakishly won it all in his first run. But he never made it back so I guess he forgot how to clear the hump after 99.
The hump is a fictional narrative we apply to great players or teams who haven't won championships, not because they can't, but because talent is everywhere in modern sports, and basic math says many many great teams will miss out.My motto was always to keep swinging. Whether I was in a slump or feeling badly or having trouble off the field, the only thing to do was keep swinging. -Hank Aaron
