Don't get me wrong TB is a great QB.. one of the best but the fact that they get a reputation for being the best in history because of their success when cheating is comical. The Pats shouldn't be in the SB this year... they didn't beat a single team with a winning record in the regular season. 13 wins and none of them had a winning record? Really? They then got to play the one dimensional option offense with Tim Tebow who like the rest of the teams they beat didn't have a true winning record & then beat the Ravens because the Ravens TRULY beat themselves. The Pats must be thinking man... we really out played the best of the best this year... we're the best team in the NFL. HAHA over hyped & comical. I hope the Giants win... at least they grinded this year to win their division, overcame injuries & beat some worthy teams.
    I don't know what this post has to do with the topic at hand???? Was it the Pats fault they played 13 teams that failed to play .500 ball? So I'm confused.....should we determine the Superbowl teams by who beat the most teams with a winning record during the regular season and scrap the playoff system that seems to plague Baltimore every year? If the Patriots were so undeserving, maybe the Ravens should have beaten them on the field, instead of whineing about how unfair everything is. Just a note, the playoffs are the most important time of the year and if the Ravens can't beat the Patriots when the Pats turn the ball over, Brady has 0 TD passes and your offense is playing the 31st ranked D, you probably don't deserve to advance. Seems like the Patriots found a way to win when they played poorly, and the Ravens couldn't take advantage when the game was there to be taken.....so the Ravens...rightfully so, do not advance. If the Patriots are so bad, like you claim, just beat them, stop complaining afterward.

What do you think the Ravens will finish next season ???
    You're a troll because do not have any kind of pulse on this team. Period. If you are indeed a Pats fan then congrats on the win, good luck in the superbowl and move on to the Giants board. There's no value in you hanging around other than trying to get a rise out of us ravens fans. You're continued presence on these boards is a little unusual.

    Sorry if I like to discuss football, I'm the one getting attacked because I predicted the Ravens to go 10-6 next season....is that really a slap in the face to Raven nation? The pulse of the team is that they are always close but come up short every year, be it to the Steelers or Patriots, and need to get over the hump. Funny I see Raven fans also predict a 10-6 mark for next season and no one says boo to them......jeeez lighten up everyone. I guess if you don't predict a 15-1 mark or say the Ravens just got unlucky again this year but next year will be different you don't know what you are talking about. I saw a guy on another post say the Ravens and Flacco will not lose to the Steelers the next 10 years and no one says that is crazy....but I say 10-6 and I'm ridiculous. too funny.

    My issue is not your prediction. 10-6 is not a bad prediction at all. My issue is why are you here on this board discussing the ravens when you should be another board discussing the Patriots-Giants. Your continued presence is a very subtle back hand slap and I think you thrive on seeing how some of us are lamenting our loss. And no I don't have a case of sour grapes. I got over the loss 30 minutes after the game ended. I would love to have you come back next year to discuss football when the Patriots come to town. Then we can discuss the state of ravens and the state of the patriots.

    Sorry if you do not like that I post on this board and you feel you should dictate who is able to post on here. Since you only can have Raven and NFL conversations with Raven fans, that's probably your problem and maybe just don't read what I have to say. I try to be respectful to the Ravens fans, but I am not trying to give anyone a backhand slap.

    the glass is half empty. Reed and Ray will be a year older, might lose JJ (and others) to free agency, will have to hope Suggs can stay motivated. McKinnie and Birk will be a year older (if they return), Cundiff might be snake-bit. probly lose Lee Evans.
    the glass is half full. most of the team is young and will only get better, esp T Smith, Doss, and the tight ends. the team is deep on o-line, linebaker, and d-line. the dbacks exceeded expectations; Webb/Smith could be a top tandem, wi Cary W a great 3rd. continuity will help.

    I wonder; how good will Houston and Cinci be next year? and will Pigsburgh take a step back?
    Baltimore Ravens, 2012 NFL Champions!

    Older veterans could play worse compared to '11 since there will be no lockout - it was the lockout that caused so many of them to have great seasons throughout the league this year.

    12-4 to 13-3, assuming that our receivers progress, the OL is rejuvenated, and we survive major free agency defections. TEs should swap places, and hopefully we get to see Doss or Williams rise, and find a guy with sticky fingers to replace Evans.

    I don't buy into the Ravens schedule being difficult, again just based on the 2011 rosters. Doubtful that the Ravens will be facing so many top 10 defenses again. AFC West and NFC East are bottom feeder divisions, and we get to play their better teams in Baltimore. If the road game curse against mediocre teams is resolved, the Ravens should go 8-0 to 6-2 against these two divisions. I expect to see the Steelers dropping off substantially, but little improvement by the Bengals unless they get a few impact players off the 3 first rounders. 5-1 to 4-2 against our division. Another 8-0 home record is not just conceivable, but likely; bookies would likely establish the Ravens as the favorite in every game.

    The 10-6 prediction above is unlikely, but anything could happen. We have had 4 straight charmed seasons of Flacco and Rice capable of playing just about every down of 49 games. An injury to either could be catastrophic, with a questionable back-up QB and the potential of Ricky Williams retiring or going on another reefer binge.

    btw: I don't get what ails some of you re the Patriots fan coming here to provide an outside opinion. We have booted many opponents fans who came here to taunt and flame, but have always welcomed intelligent discourse about Ravens football with opponents fans.
    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).

    This is essentially what you are doing by attempting to predict next years Ravens record based on how many teams they play that had winning records or successful seasons this year.

    Personally, I think trying to predict next years record for next season this far in advance is useless.
    Will Die A Ravens Fan!!

    Obviously people guessing what next seasons record is done for fun and is certainly an inexact science, but who they play doesn't play into what their record may be? And for the other part, I was responding to a poster that was claiming that Baltimore should be the team to move on because they beat more teams with winning records during the regular season.....I assume you think that is a good idea too because I don't see you commenting about that gem of a comment.

    You wouldn't even be here if Lee Evans held on to the ball wouldn't you? Your just here to tell us about how much better the Patriots are than the Ravens, and how the Ravens aren't "elite". Giving us 10-6 predictions, that's fine, lets just see what happens next season. If we beat you next season at home, I bet you wont be here.

    Re: Baltimore Ravens in 2012

    Way too early to think about 2012. We at least need to have a clearer view of the roster. This time last season was anyone possibly thinking that the Colts would be the worst team in the NFL? How about that the 49ers would be the 2nd seed in the NFC? I need to see who we lose in free agency first and how those loses are replaced.

    Show me all the quotes....or even one, that I boast how much better I think the Patriots are. The thread is about how you think the Ravens will be next year.....I responded with 10-6, pretty good record for the tough schedule they look to have. You think I said they were going to go 3-13 with the responses I've been getting.
    The Ravens may very well beat the Patriots next season, the Ravens have a good team and I wouldn't be suprised to see them win, and if they did I certainly wouldn't run and hide. Honest question, what is more realistic Ravens going 10-6 or Ravens beating Pittsburgh EVERY time for the next 10 years ? Yet I get attacked and the genius who claimed the 20 game win streak vs. Pittsburgh has nothing said to him. I'd say you Baltimore fans are very fair .

    I'm not saying that we are even gonna sweep the Steelers next season, and we are never gonna go on a 20 game win streak against them. But we swept the Steelers this season, and won our division, right now as it stands we are in better position than the Steelers are, even the Bengals are in better posistion than them with two first round picks. The Steelers have cap issues and are gonna have to have a youth movement on defense which hardely ever wins you the toughest division in football. So I just don't get how you can be so sure that the Steelers are still the better team than us after what happened this season.

    I know you didn't say it, but a Raven poster on here claimed a 10 year winning streak vs. the Steelers is coming, and I'm unrealistic to predict 10-6.
