    I was pissed about it for about a day then I just moved on and have been occupying my usual football time with draft stuff. Maybe its the fact that I believe the team will still be good next year or the excitement of possibly drafting Ray's successor (BURFICT!!) but I'm over it.

    Re: Anyone Else Depressed Over this Week?

    I'm not depressed...honestly, and I'm as big a fan as anyone, but it's silly to get depressed over football. IMO, anyone that is legitimately depressed just because of how the Ravens season ended has serious issues that go beyond a football game.

    I'm upset at how the season ended and will likely never get over what happened and what could have been, but it's still just a game. It's a sport. It's not that serious. I haven't watched any NFL coverage and likely won't watch the Super Bowl, and I probably won't really pay attention to anything NFL related outside of this board until FA starts, but that's the extent of it.

    I am sure GOTA did not mean depressed, as in I need to take medication or talk to a doctor because the Ravens lost and I am not sure if I can go on.

    I agree. It certainly doesn't work for me. I made the mistake of watching the game at my in-laws home (lured there by the big screen TV and the tasty food). After the game, my mother-in-law made some stupid "it's just a game" type comment. That irritated me a ton at the time and I really haven't talked to her since.

    Perhaps to someone (like her)who follows the team for 3 hours a week, 16 weeks a year, it would be viewed as just a game. For those of us who pour a considerable amount of time, money, effort, etc into the Ravens, it certainly extends beyond the realm of being "just a game".

    I would never say "depressed" because I don't believe in the entire concept of depression in the least. I think terming it is a "long term kick in the gut" is more accurate from my perspective.

    I agree, but it doesn't require b*tching.

    Nothing for the Ravens Fans be depressed about. You have a young QB, Some Young Talent on the D side, and a scary RB. I even say you guys have a couple decent WR. The Ravens future is Bright, IMO you just need improvement on the O line or Flacco going to get killed.

    As a fan who watched his team come up short time and time and time again in the mid 90s and early 00's (4 AFCC losses and 1 SB loss), I can sympathize. It gets better though, and when the Ravens do finally win it all (and I really think they will in the next couple years), it'll be that much sweeter.

    I'm not depressed but I am bummed, and I will feel a lot better if the Giants win "our" Super Bowl, because if I see Tom Brady hoisting that trophy it's going to be very hard to avoid thinking that it should have been Joe Flacco doing that instead.

    The annual choke thing is part of what's bumming me out.

    2008 - Darren Stone
    2009 - Presto! Ravens magically turn crap Indy defense into the 1985 Chicago Bears
    2010 - Get 14 point lead. Then fumble, throw interception, fumble, drop, drop, lose.
    2011 - Play tight game, then drop, shank, lose.

    There's always a reason for a loss, but these are especially agonizing ones.

    I guess Ray Lewis was right.

    I'm not depressed because life goes on.

I still even get a sick feeling logging on here in fact (no offense to any of my esteemed fellow members). I think I will be a bit recovered as we approach the draft, but I'm really trying to put more of my focus on other things right now because each time I think about the Ravens, my stomach turns a bit right now.
    Then you are depressed. When I think of my Ravens, I think of the excitement they have brought the past four seasons and the strong likelihood that we return to playoffs next season.

    Re: Anyone Else Depressed Over this Week?

    Since 7:00 P.M. on January 21st I have not:

    1. Watched a single second of ESPN or any other national sports coverage, with the exception of the hour I spent at Buffalo Wild Wings, locked in on a hockey game.
    2. Listened to a single second of any local or national sports talk radio. I programnmed out 105.7 (long overdue anyway) and anything on XM.
    3. Watched any football. Somebody mentioned something a couple of days ago about the poor KR for the 49ers getting death threats for fumbles, and I said "what fumbles".
    4. Considered for a second watching any of the Super Bowl. I will be at the movies.

    Not depressed, just choosing not to deal with it. Fuck it.

    You're correct. As I've gotten older with less time because I have 3 young kids to deal with, football has really become my sport.

    I got bored with baseball and once my favorite player retired, stopped watching or caring about it. I haven't been into basketball since the 80's. I used to watch a lot of hockey but since they changed the rules to get scoring up I watch less and less. I still enjoy Manchester United and the EPL but haven't been able to see it as much as I would like to. I doubt I'll even watch a minute of the Olympics which have become very corporate and distasteful.

    NFL football is a lot like Summer. It's something special and it goes very quickly. I hate the fact that it's now over my sports year won't start again until September. Until then I'll probably focus more on my own mountain biking and watching my kids play soccer.
