Re: Ray Lewis & Soldiers Coming to Town 



I'm more worried about Joe Flacco, after what he did to the #2 Ranked Defense (Denver) on Saturday.

Joe Flacco totally outplayed the alleged "MVP" Peyton Manning (2 INTs, 1 FUMBLE) and was the far better player on the field.

Flacco also outplayed Brady last year in the AFCCG and oh yeah, outplayed him in Baltimore earlier this year.

I wonder if Brady belongs in the same conversation as Flacco?

Re: Ray Lewis & Soldiers Coming to Town 


Starting already i see. well if Flacco outplayed Brady in last years AFCCG i wonder why they were not in the super bowl. Ohh that is right they did not win the game. As for earlier this year lets not forget you will not have the benefit of the replacment refs calling a field goal good when it clearly was not.

Now to talk seriously about a football team instead of having delusions like the clever fellows who are here to troll. The ravens will be tough very very tough to beat and i hope the Pats can manage to pull it offagainst a team with a good offense and a great defense.

LOL....that's funny, you got that backwards. I think it was Tom Brady who won 3 SBs in his 1st 5 years. How many SBs has Flacco been in and won in the 5 years he's been in the league?

And I beat you to it pat.these 2 are already on my ignore.
The time has come..... Here's to the 2014 Season.

Ravens fans getting a little too cocky.They needed a miracle in denver to advance.My problem with Brady last year was his second half performance. This is a totally different patriots team then the one u played earlier!Different secondary.I cant stand the ravens.I hope BB can come up with a plan to stop Flacco.

This is the game the Ravens and Baltimore wanted.  Actually I was more afraid of the Texans just because of Arian Foster and I just had a bad feeling about them.  I don't think they are better than the Pats, I just don't think the Ravens match up well against them.  There was a distinct feeling in 2000 when the Ravens won the S.B. and that feeling is floating around Baltimore again.  It will be a last possession game again as all Ravens games seem to be. 

Needless to say though as the thread intended, Flacco has outplayed Brady of late and the Ravens have outplayed the Patriots in the last two playoff games in N.E.  I think it is hard to dispute that this Ravens team wants this game more than the Patriots.  Art Modell, Ray Lewis and the sour taste of leaving one in N.E. last year.

RE: Ray Lewis & Soldiers Coming to Town 


I think that both sides are a little unrealistic here.

As a Ravens' fan, my problem is that Brady put 28-35 points per game. Also my problem is that when we beat you earlier in the season our team was healthier and T. Smith had a crazy emotional game. I don't see an immediate replacement for Webb, who is the best option to cover Welker. Finally, I would worry if Bernard Pierce is not a go and his knee injury has been aggravated.

As a Patriots' fan, I would worry about throwing to Graham, Reed and Williams. They all have good hands. I would also worry about how the Ravens offensive line has played extremely well against NYG, IND, and DEN. That has been the difference in Flacco's performances in the last meaningful games the Ravens have played. And I would not understimate the mystique of what the Ravens are doing as the typical "Belispeak" of "just another play." Nobody wants to be the goat this year.

Ravens LB Brendon Ayanbadejo was already trash-tweeting during today's Texans game. That's what you were referring to.

By contrast, Brady's remarks about the AFCCG were: "I think the two best teams are in the finals. Baltimore certainly deserves to be here, and so do we, so it's very fitting. We played them early in the year. They got us. We blew a pretty big lead there at the end. We're going to have to play our best game this week."

All the remarks today were in lock-step. Ravens are a great team, deserve to be there, going to be a tough game, and so on. Which is a very dangerous sign for the Ravens - when the Pats come together as a team they've shown they can overcome just about any individual personnel loss.

BA is a third string linebacker...special teams player that left his assignment in both special team touchdowns against Denver.  No one in Baltimore pays him any mind.  The rest of the Ravens squad will spit out the same boring meaningless "media-talk" as Brady.  This game won't be won because of over-rated bulletin board material.  I find it curious that the Patriots forums are so crazy with BA's comments.  As many SB's you guys have been in in the past dozen years, I would think you all would pay it no mind as well.  Your forums seem a bit restless.  A bit tense.  I don't think you guys truly want this game one bit and the BA comments are getting a bit under your skin.  I don't blame you.

Quite the contrary. We are easily amused by players who ignore the "don't feed the bears" signs and insist on giving the Pats extra reasons to pound them into gravy.

Maybe but I would think by now you guys would act like you have been there before.  Letting BA force a reaction from seems a bit sensitive to me. There's a greater wind coming to NE than BA.  I promise you that.

What a laugh this thread is. I was watching that Ravens v Broncos game rooting for the Ravens almost as hard as I pull for the Pats. Why? Because going to Denver to play Manning was CLEARLY the tougher path to the SB. The Ravens won their SB on Saturday and now they are done. They are an old, tired team and it will show this coming Sunday. This game wont even be close.

The Ravens have veteran toughness and a solid defense. They won't roll over. I just wish they'd STFU already.

Ravens fans may be underestimating the toll the Denver game took. Double-OT at high altitude, then the long flight home. We've seen the Pats empty the well winning a game like that and the week after isn't always smooth sailing.

There is a wind to this thread and it's best ignored.  The Pats will let the turds do all their talking and play ball.

At least Seattle is out of it so past this week the stupid talk ends.

Brendon Ayanbadejo says he 'can't really respect' Patriots


Brendon Ayanbadejo says he 'can't really respect' Patriots' offensive style

By Aaron WilsonThe Baltimore Sun

8:10 p.m. EST, January 13, 2013




Providing a bit of bulletin-board material before the New England Patriots even officially finished off the Houston Texans to reach the AFC championship game, special-teams ace Brendon Ayanbadejo delivered a shot at the Ravens' next opponent.

"New England does some suspect stuff on offense," Ayanbadejo wrote on his verified Twitter account. "Can't really respect it. Comparable to a cheap shot b4 a fight. Are you watching the game pats vs texans? If so you see the hurry snap offense catch em b4 they set up. It's a gimmick. "Their offense is good enough to be successful with out that. .. In a sport that is predicated on mano y mano, lets hurry up n snap it = [expletive]"


The Ravens lost to the Patriots in the AFC title game last season.

The Patriots' formidable offense is headlined by quarterback Tom Brady, who passed for three touchdowns and 344 yards during Sunday's win over the Texans.

The Patriots piled up 457 yards of total offense and 24 first downs.

Not content to just rip the Patriots' offensive strategy, which is predicated by a lot of quick throws by Brady, Ayanbadejo also referenced New England's Spygate controversy and releasing wide receiver Tiquan Underwood last year one day before the Super Bowl.

"You know the same organization that did spygate and cut a guy the day b4 the Super Bowl," Ayanbadejo wrote.

It's unlikely that Patriots coach Bill Belichick will react to Ayanbadejo's comments, but they're sure to find their way to the Patriots' locker room as a bit of motivational fuel heading into a rematch of last year's AFC title game.

haha, this game will come down to your keen intellect and psychologically crippling posts. Brady will read these boards, see that you "want it" more than our board does and hopefully still be able to find the strength to play. Well done, hope the Ravens are paying you handsomely!

Flacco looked very strong against Denver on Saturday.  That might have been the best game of his career so far.  The Ravens are going to be very tough to beat on Sunday, no doubt.  The Pats seem to have an advantage playing at home and the Ravens having played a long, emotional game on Saturday.  It may play out that the Ravens run out of gas, but I'm not counting on it.

I don't think the Pats can rely on Flacco making a mistake in this game.  They'll need to bring pressure more often than yesterday, do a better job stopping the run, and of course, try to shore up the special teams.

Patriots will beat Baltimore again - deja va 


Who is this Ayanbadejo? He sounds like another in a long line of losers. He is worried about the Patriots offense and would love if the Patriots told him what they are running in advance. Anyone not worried would not have tweeted such nonsense.

Ray Lewis is 2-8 vs New England. It's only fitting that Gillette Stadium is his final football resting place.

It's always the bums who do this.  Fred Mitchell, the CB from the Steelers, Vanderjegt, and now Ayanbadejo.  I bet this dies down after the actual starters heap praise on the Pats all week. 

To be honest, while stupid, I have a small amount of respect for the boldness.  It's harder to do this than what Sherman does AFTER a win.

Funny, that is exactly what we heard from the Broncos fans last week.  The Lewis farewell game was our superbowl and now they are done and they will have nothing left coming back from that on short rest and going across country into the thin, cold air.

As for AB, the guy was once a pretty good special teams player but now most of us fans can't stand him.  He is always spouting off about something when he should be worrying about his fading abilities.

The way I see it, instead of instigating each other, we should just enjoy the upcoming game.  It should turn out to be another incredible game like the one we had last year.  And if we happen to win, I will feel like we have beaten the future (Luck), the past (Manning) and the present(Brady) to get there.  That, alone, is quite a feat.

It should be a very good game and I'm curious to see how both sides of the ball handle the matchups.  Like I said above, when these comments generally come back to haunt players it is because they realize they'll look really foolish if they have a bad game and play nervous (like Anthony Smith or Fred Mitchell).  This guy may not see the field on defense so unless Ray Lewis or Suggs comes out and says the same thing, I can't imagine that this will be much of a motivator.  It does take away from the Patriot media love, which could have been a motivator for the Ravens.

Good to see that more professional members of the Ravens organization are keeping things in line ...

Brendon Ayanbadejo ‏apologizes for comments about the Patriots

@brendon310: I made selfish comments on twitter last night that reflected poorly upon myself, my teammates, and the organization. For that I apologize.

"... But that doesn’t mean the Ravens were happy that one of their players spoke out of turn like that. It seems likely that Ravens coach John Harbaugh or someone else in the team’s leadership leaned on Ayanbadejo to apologize and move on."
