Hats off to Baltimore, they were the better team last night.

I also do not understand why Suggs finds it necessary to talk so much crap after the game. You won. You don't have to take shots at the Patriots.

Not only are the Ravens sore losers (it's literally never their fault when they lose), but they're sore winners too. They gave their head coach a ****ing Gatorade bath last season after they swept the Steelers. Never mind that it's unbecoming to waste Gatorade in November.

Apparently the Ravens are sore players also. I heard they are the 2nd most penalized team in the league. 3 personal fouls in one game! I don't think I saw that many all season from all the teams combined that played the Pats! John H calls that being a "selfish player". Why doesn't he levy big fat fines on the individual players when they do that? Personally, I think lots of football players are just plain old thugs who use the game as a legal way of hurting others. This is ALL teams, not just the Ravens. I never liked the Houston Oilers or the Oakland Raiders because they were "dirty players" back in my day. JMHO.

Whether they're dirty or not, the hard hits they levied against New England had an impact througout the game.

There were several 'drops' throughout the game from New England, which in my mind I figured it was because the receivers were afraid they were going to get popped hard by Reed or the guy (#31) that took out Ridley...

OMG, Ridley, of course he dropped the ball, the guy lost consciencesness!! I knew it when it happened! I was surprised Welcker didn't get injured as a matter of fact.

The Ridley hit was downright scary. I honestly thought he was paralyzed by the way he reacted after the hit....you never want to see something like that. All the fans in Foxboro were booing because there was a scuffle for the loose ball afterwards and Baltimore was cheering (because they recovered the fumble) while the guy was knocked out on the ground! A weird set of events!

Welker also took some really hard hits..


I still think the Mayo hit on Pitta was really bad...not dirty, but amazed the guy caught a TD on the very next play!

Those were scarey, I was surprised Pitta got up and then caught a TD! It always bothers me when you see players overly excited about the play, yet a player from the other team is on the ground. Football is not for the faint of heart. Ravens are scarey.

That was a disgusting scene with medical/coaches trying to help Ridley and the "Unkindness" of Ravens all trying to get the "carrion".

Yes, that hit Jerad Mayo leveled on Pitta was something else! I couldn't believe Pitta got up! I was in shock when Pitta got the TD the very next play.

I turned the channel when they got two 1/2 scores ahead. I don't like seeing "us" get defeated especially when they play so poorly. Pats are a 4th quarter team! WTH happened??? I think my late husband was right although I used to argue with him....the fix is in.

Regarding the point on the Ravens' reaction during/after the Ridley hit, look, its football and at times its a violent, gruesome game....emotions run extremely high and its very hard to judge someone when you are on the bottom of a pile fighting for a loose ball....it is a little easier (sarcasitc) to judge when you are in the comfort of your home watching on a 50" LCD.....lol. I think we need to keep that in mind also...


Maybe I was totally off base, but just like when the 49ers got down big, even when the Pats were down 15 in the 4th quarter, I never for a second thought they couldn't tie it up....However you have to give kudos to the Baltimore defense. They made a huge stop on 4th down in their own red zone, and then the tipped pass/interception was icing on the cake....

Was just a good hard fought old school football game....a shame someone had to lose.

I thought the Pats were still in it, thinking they could come back but Ravens were really in it to win it. I feel like they fought harder, and wanted it more.
