    If the Ravens get knocked out for a 4th straight year you'll hear more complaining not less.

    The season needs to end with a Ravens Super Bowl.

    It is what it is. People on message boards voice their opinions, approvals, and disapproval's, players talk out of context, and there are sometimes things fans don't want to hear. It's up to you to either listen or ignore. If players are criticizing other players, albeit how minute, it's most likely because they know there is more potential and improvement to be had.
    As far as packing in the season, forget it. If you're tired of hearing fans voice their opinions, and the national radio/TV giving the Ravens criticism, then perhaps you should stop paying attention and tuning into the Ravens, and that goes for watching the AFCC game as well.

When that site went belly up and we all moved here, the timing was right.

    This is the only site to go to for the Ravens.

    Fact is when the team is on the verge of a Super Bowl, all fans come out of the wood work. Like there were never trolls on here till 2011? You guys need to thicken your skin up, use ignore, or come back with real arguments outside of crying about 2011 Sunspot Influx.

    As for the OP, you obviously did little research or have zero insight into the team. I listened to Ed Reed live, and he said Joe and the whole team need to play better. Letting the media take a hatchet job to the the players and you believing it is what is pathetic. Suggs just came out and defended Flacco. That team is united.

    As for its fan base, look at it like this; even when there are 71,000 fans at the stadium there are always going to be a few tools. Like family members, I'd be amazed if everyone registered at this site gets along great and agrees 100% with every member of their family and extended family.

    Logic and truth.
    Thank you.

    I think I'm part of the 2nd exodus in terms of time frame, but only because I am a procrastinator and didn't try to go elsewhere until the whole pay thing. If you need a reference, I was invited here by B-Ravor via a private message.

    As for the hysteria about what some player or media-type "said", I always like to look it up for myself before pissing myself and foaming at the mouth. Usually there is a deeper and more accurate story than the one that's out there.

    As for the original post on this thread:

    As for Reed, he shouldn't have given the interview knowing the media will take any chance to turn it on Flacco, but if you read the whole interview, he wasn't bashing Flacco at all.
    How do u think reed would like it if a teammate aid he was timid and scared to make tackles... Ala Bernard Scott...reed made assumptions at joe was rattled... Not very cool. And he finger pointed... Also not cool.

    I haven't read the Reed-Flacco thread downward-spiral-to-nowhere, but I think we know Joe well enough at this point that this isn't the sort of thing that bothers him. He might not win on Sunday, but it won't be because Ed Reed hurt his feelings (even though he didn't).

    Really?
    And from those 14 minutes, the world is focused on three words: Reed, Flacco and rattled.

    In a majority of the articles I’ve read, for whatever reason, writers excluded Reed’s powerful statements about his confidence in Flacco’s ability to match the production of New England’s offense.

    When asked if Flacco and the offense can keep pace with Brady, Reed didn’t blink.

    “Oh yeah, definitely,” he said. “Without a doubt.”

    “I think Flacco can have a breakout game, especially after last week. I know he’s p.o.‘ed about what happened and his performance. He could feel a little rust coming off of a bye week and not going full speed as much. So I know he is definitely coming back to show himself off.”

    But instead of focusing on that, headlines around the web are focusing on Reed’s analysis of the Ravens’ offensive production against the stout Texans’ defense.

    It’s analysis that Reed admits is “hearsay” and “you never know what somebody else is seeing.”

    The more I think about it, the more I'm starting to believe the Ravens O-line and defense will push around the Patriots.

    One of the reasons Houston's O-line & Def looked so good last week (besides being talented) is cause they came in here and were told by everyone they had no chance of winning. You could see the fire in that teams belly when it came to the battle in the trenches.

    Take a look and listen to everyone (outside most folks in Baltimore) and you'll hear the same thing being said about the Ravens this week. The disrespecrt is at an extremely high level.... I just hope John Harbaugh is feeding off of it and using it to get his guys ready.

    Educate yourself.

    It doesn't matter what any of the media pundits say. All that matters is what goes on in the locker room. I doubt Harbaugh is going to let an article/interview that was clearly taken out of context ruin what the Ravens have going for them right now.
    Just heard it on WBAL. The media is such a joke there days!

    Made the mistake of watching "Touchdown, Baltimore!" last night. Never doing that again.

    You're welcome to jump off the Ravens' SuperBowl Express anytime you want. No one is stopping you. I'm staying on for the whole ride!

    I was talking about the fans and media. The fans in this city are going to drive Flacco out of town (see - Eddie Murry) if this keeps up.

    Also, Jim Rome just KILLED Flacco on his show as the top story, saying he needs to grow up and stop letting Ray Rice, Reed, and Lewis winning all the games for him.

    Re: This season just needs to end

    Don't forget the point of a forum is for fans to express opinions, ideas and any other general thoughts. The board would be quite boring if I agreed with everyone.

    To me the trolls are the people that post stuff that they don't even believe themselves just to get a rise out of people. Don't confuse a true troll with someone that merely has an opinion you totally disagree with. To often I see someone get called a troll for expressing an unpopular opinion, then the complaints on how nice the board used to be seem to follow.

    Use your best judgement on who is expressing a real opinion and who is here to just get a rise.
