    Re: Here it come: The Proverbial "What If"??

    I agree with the above posters, if we lose in a "what if he made this catch" again mode I'm going to be in denial for another year again. It took me 366 days to finally get over Lee Evans...I don't want another scapegoat. That's why we've just gotta win this game.

    However, if we do unfortunately lose, and we play a really good game and just come up short...I'll be proud, obviously sad but not as bad as last year.

    As far a this season, the Super Bowl is a mere formality. This has been a special season regardless.

    As far as the future, regardless of whether we win or lose we're still in cap hell next year. Resigning Joe puts us at 20 million dollars over. Ozzie is amazing at his job though. Whatever happens I have faith he can put together a team.

    Win or Lose, This team has accomplished it's 5 year plan. When John Harbaugh came in, this was a team that was a defense carrying a sickly, sputtering offense. 5 years later, our offense is roaring strong, with a franchise QB, two dynamic RBs, a playmaking wide receiver, a stout TE, and strong pieces on the OL. On D...we're losing some age, and some key guys are getting up in the years (Suggs and Ngata), but we've still got strong pieces poised to come together.

    We're in for a rough couple years. I think some outsiders are overestimating our salary cap troubles, from what B-more Ravor's articles have showed, it looks like we'll be VERY tight against the cap, but these other reports make it sound like we need to cut Boldin, JJ, and 2-3 other guys JUST to keep Joe. From what I gather, we probably have enough money to keep Joe and maybe our rookie pool and tenders. If we want to retain any of our other FAs, then we'll need cuts or restructures. That said, there are some pieces which will be in transition. As I said when he went out with an injury, Ray as a player wasn't too hard to replace. Ray as a D leader is the true pain. Which is why losing Reed too would be a huge blow. We'd need Suggs, Ngata, and Pollard to REALLY step up their voices and teaching.

    If we lose, I'll be disappointed, but proud. And next year if we fail to make the playoffs, I'll wait for next year. I'll only panic if we hit a Raider-level downward spiral. Which I don't expect.

    Call me a Special Teams coach again. I dare you! I double dare you, MFer!

    The Ravens will not lose, so I don't see the point of this thread.
