    Re: Starting to sink in yet? Super Bowl XLVII



    the AFC has just been loaded the last few years. I think I read somewhere, last nine years only three teams have won the AFC (Pats four, Sqealers three, Colts two), so we're the first team to break that hold since the Raiders in '02. (don't see them going back any time soon)
    I think we're seeing a changing of the guard in the conference. Colts and Texans might be the big teams in the future; Peyton and Brady are almost done, and Pigsburgh's qb gets more beaten up every year. (I would really like to see him take his rings and go home before he gets seriously, crippled hurt.)
    a lot of mediotti have continuously talked about the Ravens 'old' defense but I think most of that is based on Ray and Ed. Suggs and Ngata are in their primes, and a lot of the rest of the guys are young. same on offense; aside from Birk (and Boldin) it's a young group, just peaking.
    (I'm having a happy thinking about this O next year, Coach Caldwell having another year to prep, going to game wi Flacco, Rice, Pierce, Smith, Pitta, Jacoby...how many NFL teams have that man quality weapons?)

    You are in a great city no doubt to have the Ravens coming to town for the SB!! I lived in Tampa in 2000 and just being part of the "purple crowd" and around the SB festivities was AWESOME!! Other than not being at the game....the entire week being a fan with your team in town is a great experience.

The magnitude of SB Sunday will be unreal, I cannot wait. It's also surreal in the fact that no matter the outcome, this really IS Ray's last game. It's going to be emotional and electric to say the least, I can't wait for the dance.
    I totally agree. I started watching late in the season when we won the superbowl that year. Been a fan ever since.

    Especially when you consider all the adversity this team had to overcome to make it to the SB. I had them dead to rights after the loss to the Redskins, but when they fired Cam the next day, it was a whole new ball game, the Denver loss at home aside.

    It's tremendous to see them finally get over the hump after being going on deep play off runs 6 out of the last 7 years. It's incredible!

    It hits me in small spurts. Like a few random moments where I just think "Oh my god. We're in the Super Bowl. The fucking Super Bowl!!"

    Even if the Biscuit continues to run an awesome organization, Ozzie and Eric continue to be outstanding, and Harbaugh continues to be an excellent coach, there's no guarantee that we'll be back here anytime soon. I'm enjoying it as much as I can.

    I had to temper myself at Dick's...they had all the Ravens stuff lined up, ended up buying an AFC Champions tee, a program, and my son a pennant for his room. Nearly bought the hat, nearly bought a stein for SB47, nearly bought a SB47 jersey. Shout out though, all AFC Championship gear there was 25% off!

    It's been a weird postseason. Between Ray's last dance home game, the incredible win in Denver, and the firm stomping of the Patriots in their stadium, I feel like the Super Bowl isn't really that important anymore....I'm sure that will change as we get closer to game time.

    Part of me feels like even if the Ravens lose, I'm still satisfied. I hope the team has a different view.

    But...yes...I saw an ad for the Super Bowl last night and it had Ravens stuff all over it and I think then it finally hit me...

    Yeah, the Ravens' colors go with Mardi Gras so much better than the 49ers ' colors do.
