tonight showed the world that the Ravens are not only equal to the Patriots, but potentially better. Play that same game three times, and the Ravens win twice.
If there would be only the last 2 minutes by 3 point Ravens game. But do not hope that Patriots receivers makes 2 TD dropes in one game, or that Pats receiver makes 9 dropes next time. And for the Ravens this was "The Super Bowl" For the Pats: one regular game without real importance.

I have never seen such whinning and moaning from both the fans and players before. Blame everyone but your undisciplined team for the loss. You got your lilly asses handed to you in you own stadium. If you haven't noticed the Patriots are playing down to their opposition and they played pretty bad last night.

Sleep well Baltimore. Your team are sore losers, just like their fans

Um....

Dude? You're a waste of life, just so you know.

How the f*ck are we whining? We didn't get ANYTHING handed to us except a bunch of BS. We got our a$$es handed to us in our own house? Is THAT why Kyle Boller had a better game than TOM BRADY? Is that why we had the LEAD for most of the game? Or why we led in time of possesion, and total offensive yardage? When can you EVER say that about the Baltimore Ravens, against a team like the Pats?

You're a douche, and thanks for telling us to "sleep well". Reality is, if Rex Ryan hadn't made that IDIOTIC time out call, we would have won this game by the numbers. And even then, Mark Clayton was TWO YARDS away from a game winning TD. My my my....how that would have upset all you p*ssy little New England bandwagon jumpers.

Sleep well yourself, cause we've shown the way, and proven that the Pats AREN'T as good as advertised. They will be beaten, and they WON'T be winning another Super Bowl. Nighty night.

Buller has better stats than brady because he had most of the games no real pressure.(Except one) And got really strong help from the running game. Brady played under constant pressure. 3 sacks, lots of hurries, hits. If Buller faces constantly that pressure. Also did not help Brady's stats 9 dropes, including 2 easy should have been a TD drop. That would make it 4 TDs despite the blitzes, constant pressure, etc.

And better not to try to imagine what would have happened.
But that is about stats.

The other part of the story: despite the stats, the better game had Brady: he stepped up when it was the most important. And Buller choked when it counted the most. He passed the ball into the are when there was 3 Pats players and no receiver.

Booooooohoooooohooooo,
Geez it's ok to be a fan, root for your team, but stop your crying and stop blaming the refs, for what happenned on the feild.
Those calls in the 4th quarter were all liget, the Doves defence played great for 58 min. against a great team, thats been there before.
The Doves had the game, but teams meltdown allowed the Pats the opportunity to remain undefeated.Stop the blame game, stop crying, and Bart Scott, maybe he should consider being a closer for the O's.

I don't give a f*ck what any of you haters might have to say.....I'm damn proud of this team, I'm damn proud of every single one of it's players, and I'm damn proud to be a Ravens fan. This game was BRILLIANT, for a team that has done as badly as we have this season....this game was amazing for us, a major turnaround, and the fact that we had the LEAD for most of the game? Priceless. Tom Brady is a whining little pampered B*TCH, and it showed tonight more than ever. Every time they showed him on the sidelines when our offense was on the field, he was practically crying. What a damned baby.
Kyle Boller had a great game, despite the turnover. Willis Mcgahee had an AMAZING game, against one of the stingiest D's in the league. We went toe to toe, blow for blow, with "The Best", and we came away THIS CLOSE to winning. So what that we lost? I'm very dissapointed, but I can't be angry. This was a great game to watch, and I hope we can build off of the positives in this game for the rest of the season, as well as heading into next year.

stop whining like the ravens locker room. in a week when they calm down they will replay the tape and be forced to swallow all the mistakes they made and realize blaming the refs for things said during the game had nothing to do with the outcome. they are an undisciplined bunch of babies on defense down there and the offense should be screaming at them for costing them the game.

on that time out on 4 and 1. the Pats were gonna sneak it. the Ravens D knew they were gonna sneak it. everybody in M and T knew they were gonna sneak it. hell everybody in America knew they were gonna sneak it. so why the hell would you call a timeout? a sneak is an "either-or" situation so there's no point in calling a timeout. the play is gonna happen either way and the Ravens D was all ready for it. Why not trust one of the most ferocious run defenses of the decade? i dont get.

sry im typing what everybody has already expressed but im angry and i need to vent
