    I think it hurts even more today



    After watching the Pats beat the Chargers yesterday realizing that the AFC Championship game could be here for the first time in RAVENS history. I felt all along that New England could beat the Chargers giving us the AFC Championship game. Right now August appears to be very far away.

    It would be great for the city of New Orleans if the Saints won it all.

    I also knew NE would win & before we walked in the game Saturday, we were making our tailgating plans for next Sunday.

    I was letting it go ysterday & then had to watch NE win & it all crashed again. It was all in our hands & we couldn't hold up our end. What makes it worse is I have a Steelers fan across the street & a Redskins fan next door giving me a hard time yesterday. While they are good guys & it was all in jest, it still zings. I mean we are in the same spot as their teams now, at home, & they will get better draft choices.

    It stills burns me in the same way - we had it in our hands and all we needed was a mediocre offense to pull it off, but we got a piss-poor offensive perfomance instead.

    But I'm consoling myself with the fact that the Chargers DID lose. They are the #1 seed, 14-2 record, playing at home after a bye. And they lost. So that takes a lot of the focus off the #2 seed (us) having lost at home after a bye. At least we weren't the only home team to lose last weekend.

    Next season seems very, very far away. I'll have to take the offseason in little steps - the combine, free agency, the draft, the minicamps, finally training camp. The problem with football is that the season is too short, the offseason too long, and when the season is going on, we make it shorter for ourselves by starting to long for the next game immediately after the current one.

    I agree Steve. That was the first thing I thought of too when the Pats won. You don't get too many opportunities to host a championship game, and we sure did blow it in a big way. I did get some consolation that the much ballyhooed Chargers, who big media had already annointed Super Bowl champs, lost as well. I guess misery loves company, and I didn't want to be the only home team to lose this weekend.

    Spilled milk, etc.

    Coulda would shoulda. We all know that we had the better team, of course that always assumes the better team shows up and plays like it. We didn't, it sucks, but I've pretty much moved on.

    I'll say one thing - next year when the Dolts show up, I don't want to hear any of this "old Colts" bullshit. I want that game to be 100% Ravens, all the time.

    I agree CY, it's over, let it go & it's takes alot to say that, but I have. We have a team that has won a SB & will win 1 hopefully next year. What do they have that makes you jealous the last 23 years? Our rivals are Pissburgh, Clowns & the Bungles. We can have 1 with Indy, but because we play them almost every year & don't like them on the field, not because they left. That has no bearing on the game & shouldn't matter now, especially after all the crap last week & what that got us.

    I think CY is right too. It seems too much emphasis was placed on getting revenge on the Colts for leaving Baltimore. The Ravens beat them in 1999 and as some icing on the cake, Jim Harbaugh gave the game ball to Johnny U, who was on the sidelines at the game.

    The focus should be on the team that currently plays in Baltimore, the Ravens!

    Disagree..... It's not going to happen. Too many people are still pissed off about having our history stolen.

    I'll move on when Unitas' name is listed under "Baltimore Colts" in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
    In a 2003 BBC poll that asked Brits to name the "Greatest American Ever", Mr. T came in fourth, behind ML King (3rd), Abe Lincoln (2nd) and Homer Simpson (1st).
