Not that anyone accepts his opinion (he's a moron), just really funny how he's running out of excuses and won't admit his own stupidity
Predictably, Redskins fans are whining and moaning about the Ravens for the most part.
It's all the same B.S.: Smack about the fans being "whiny", claiming that Baltimore is an inferior city and/or has an inferiority complex, the whole "Ravens are the stolen Browns" tripe, calling Ray Lewis a "murderer", etc., etc. A few took issue with the Ravens team colors (Really? Because I find burgandy to be very depressing myself). They seem genuinely shocked that Ravens fans carry a grudge for Jack Kent Cooke trying to block the NFL's return to Baltimore.
And they seem to love to drone on and on about the Redskins' "history" and their "national fanbase", both of which they claim Baltimore and the Ravens lack. But if we include Colts history (which there is no reason why we shouldn't), I'll take Unitas and Lewis as being more influential legendary players than anyone who has ever wore the Redskins uniform and the '58 Championship and '00 Purple Reign Defense as being better teams and championship games than anything the Redskins have given us.
All I can say is that it must suck to be irrelevant for most of the past two decades where your greatest accomplishment has been going one-and-done in the playoffs and losing your star QB in the process. If the Ravens win this Super Bowl, the Redskins will have a grand total of one more SB win than us, and none since the Senior Bush administration. Say what you want about the Steelers, but at least they have some history to legitimately brag about, albiet annoyingly. The more Redskins fans insist it's the Ravens fans who have the inferiority complex, the more obvious it is that they are the ones who are suffering.
Sorry--grew up in Southern MD when the Redskins were the only team in the area, so I have to hear all the time from Redskins fans. Never could stand that team. Baltimore was "my city" where my family grew up and I always identified with everything about it. DC, on the other hand, was the place I would go on class field trips every other year, and I had no interest in rooting for any of its teams.
Redskin fan need something to do or complain about. How about that coach who lets his players decide if they can play hurt or not? Redskins, on a Raven forum with the Ravens going to the SB. Unbeleivable that they need to talk about the Ravens or Baltimore, they have way to many problems elsewhere.
If I were a Deadskins fan, I'd be more worried about how my coach ruined their franchise QB.
Yesterday on Moving the Chains Tim Ryan said that if the 49ers' passrush doesn't improve Flacco is going to carve them up.
man the whole country is sick right now except Baltimore and I love it!!
From the multi-page threads on their message board, to Dan Steinberg's multi-posts about Ravens fans on the DC Sports Bog...it just seems like they are the one with the chip (or the bigger chip) on their should these days...
This dude is actually picking us to win but this line stuck out like a sore thumb:
Uhh...what? A lot of people still call Joe an average QB but I didn't think anyone felt he was below average most of the time.Quote:
Joe Flacco, for most plays of most games, is a below-average quarterback.
LA Times guys praises the 'Weird, Wild' Ravens
"Ray Rice jumped and shouted, "Where's the trophy, where's the trophy? Is it metal or plastic? Where is it?"
Terrell Suggs finished the parade by pointing down the hall to where the Patriots were trudging inside and hollered, "Tell them to have fun in the Pro Bowl. . . . Arrogant bleeps!"
Just before reaching their locker-room door, the Ravens passed their No. 1 fan, swimmer Michael Phelps, who was proudly pulling up his shirt and shoving down his jeans and showing everyone his purple underwear.
"This is the most incredible thing I've ever seen," said a man with 18 Olympic gold medals.
Memo to those darling San Francisco 49ers: Are you ready for this?"
What you can dispute is his analysis. He seems to put the majority of the blame for stalled drives, and missed short passes on Flacco. I would argue that while Flacco can be inconsistent at times, the system Flacco was running most of this year was not the best designed for him or the Ravens offense to maintain long drives (see Greg Cossell's analysis).
I think he also is flawed when he commends Kaepernick for his 2 big game performances in the playoffs, but nary a mention of Flacco's out-playing and defeating Brady and Manning on the road.
He does commend Flacco for not turning the ball over and hitting the big plays that bust the games open...which is what Flacco did in Denver, but again, that ignores Flacco's MO during the New England game, which was short to intermediate passes over the middle.
I would say his analysis is incomplete and faulty...or very selective, at best.
I could not be a sports analyst, some of these analysts are just down-right re fucking tarded and closed minded.
They keep saying RG3 > Flacco. I don't know how a player can be better when he can't even play due to injury.
Not sure if it's been brought up, but I was just reading John Clayton's latest 'effort', and in the introduction he writes "...This will be a Super Bowl battle between Colin Kaepernick and Joe Flacco, two of the most unlikely competitors...".
Yes, because it's unlikely the QB that has played in 3 of the past 5 AFC Championship games would play in the Superbowl... Oh my days, the man is just a moron.
