DO you want me to find you articles that talk about the Ravens late hitting? There is an article out there for any side you want dude. You lost, get a tissue wipe Ray Ray and Reed's tears, then wipe yours and move on. Bunch of damn whiners.

Both of those calls were correct. You can hate the rule all you want, Suggs purposely tried to roll up on Brady, the other roughing call the guy hit his facemask so hard that it ended up by his forehead. Much more blatant than the roughing call on Mike Wright. Rules are rules, like 'em or not. Don't hit the QB in the head, don't hit them in the legs when you're on the ground. Pretty simple. BTW, excuses are like, well, you know. . . . .

One can find any article they want damning a team or actions in a game, but they did lose, and need to deal with it like the men they(Ravens) say they are. Shouldn't Lewis' comment on ESPN been more like this; "To be down in Atlanta and party your heart out, then stab a man and get away with it....Wow!....Wow!" I think that is more like it.

With all due respect, Ray never was convicted of stabbing anyone. Lets not stoop to that level.

Was the spot on the fake field goal correct? You know, the one where the ball was a full yard short and the Ravens turned over the ball on downs, but no, the refs spotted the Pats the extra yard, but no, it was reviewed, but no, the refs still got it wrong and NE gets a FG out of it.

No matter how you slice it, Brady is a pansy for begging for a flag when his own man pushed Suggs into him.

Great offense. Have your guy push their guy into your QB. If her name is Tom Brady, it's an automatic 15 yards and new set of downs.

If you think that was a good call, you don't know football.

Also, what about the Non PI calls on the two pass plays to the endzone before the ball Clayton dropped. Don't tell me you didn't see those.

There was also the Grounding call on Flacco when he was outside of the pocket, and the non call on Brady when he was in the pocket. Oh, I guess you didn't see those either.

Anyway, I feel good that even with all of that, the Ravens were that close to pulling out the win on the road, anyway. I have no doubt that the Ravens are a better team and they are still just getting it all together. I think the other teams have more respect for the Ravens then most of the people on these boards do.

Dude you blast Brady for the exact same crap your doing now. Being a whiney lil ******. Again you wont touch the Ray Lewis spearing into Brady when he is in a protected slide? You're very 1 sided. I know there were some bad calls, both ways. The penalty on Suggs was not warranted, but guess what, the refs are part of the game also. When the Ravens play a 100% error free game then they or anyone else can expect the refs to be 100% error free. Why arent you bashing butter fingers Clayton for dropping the 4th down pass? Lemme guess we cheated on that too. Your whining makes you look bad and you make it worse by continuing to harp on the same BS.

I think Clayton dropping the pass on 4th down late should be the focal point of the discussion, but it really did look like Brady basically told the ref to throw the flag and he obliged. It's part of the game, but I can see why it would get under the skin of a ravens fan. I hate to compare it to this, because it makes it seem like I am hating on Boston, but as a Bulls fan, this reminds me of when Paul Pierce flops all over the place. Playing the refs is a part of the game, no doubt, I just wish it wasn't.

Like Michael Jordan getting calls or not getting obvious calls not called ? It happens in all sports with marque players man. Jordan and Kobe are two of the biggest of all time.
