The Ravens matched up extremely well against the patriots. Rush Limbaugh stated just yesterday how the Pats won the game in Baltimore because of "stupid referee calls".

Rush, now there is a real expert. Has the professional drugie ever been right about anything? Ravens lost that game because Brian was blowing kisses at opposing players, players were throwing official's flags in the stands, assistant's were calling time outs at completely wrong and game killing times. A Billick coached game. That's why he is gone. Yeah the Ravens played a very good game but couldn't handle the pressure and of course that's what you have to do to be a top teams. In the end the Ravens showed themselfs for what they were a very poor 5-11 team.

The Ravens didn't match up with any team this year, the Pats were in a slump just like any other team will have during a long season and still found away to win the games they had too, the Patriots created their own luck by staying close during these tough games. As for Mr. Limbaugh who is a band wagon Steeler fan from the seventies and who doesn't believe that their is a thing called (Patriot Nation)up here in New England is wrong.

OK, smarty.
I guess also the loss had nothing to do with not having our probowl starters in the game. Our pro-bowl Ray Lewis was out. Our two starting pro-bowl corners were out. Our pro-bowl tight end was out. Our pro-bowl defensive end was out. Our pro-bowl quarterback was out.
Before you start talking about other crap, let's talk about our seven starting pro-bowlers being out for the Patriots game.
Just blowing kisses and and calling time outs didn't lose us that game.

Don't be naive. One untimely time out call is what seperates the win going to the Ravens.
Now get back to your mopping the floor. The boss is coming and he'll want to know why your not finished.

Just do what the Ravens did and don't call that bad time out.
Enough said.

Yeah, lets take Brady out of the game like the Ravens starting Quarterbacks were out and then see how close the game is.

The Ravens still lost this game, they couldn't stop the Patriots when they needed to. It was kind of funny watching them cry during that timeout though.

The Pats wr's can be seen not budging on the play as they heard the whistle. Much of the left side of the line was pulling, but letting up on the play. That's what happens on a play that is blown dead.

But, whatever makes you feel better about your sad team only getting up for 1 game all flippin year.
