    An inside source also claims that, in his press conference, Belichick will refer to "all three phases of the game" and compliment the Ravens in each of them. He may also call them "well-coached."

    Sorry, but after seeing ESPN's "headline" that Brady thinks the Ravens are good, I had to begin this thread.

    As well he should.

    In the Ravens show up well-prepared to guard our WR/TE's and pressure the QB, they will have a very good shot at winning.

    It will come down to our defense showing up again with the same 'swagger' that we saw on Saturday, and their abilty to stop Rice and play physically.

    Don't even try and pretend like this isn't a difficult matchup due to those reasons.

    Anyone who is talking an excessive amount of sh!t is not taking the "Patriot way" into account. It's okay to praise your opponent and let your team know that they have a difficult task ahead of them..honestly it is.

    While I agree the Pats have some decent matchups with BAL, they can still get their a$$es handed to them if they don't play with enough physicality and execute to the fullest capability.

    "The Ravens do a lot of things well in all three phases of the game." I believe is the exact quote..

    I'm kinda physic. So I bet he will not answer and questions regarding possible SB opponent and say that "we are totally focused on this game Sunday".

    Seems like there might be a mole in Foxborough.

    If he does say these things he is right....Baltimore is an extremely talented team,especially on defense and if you don't play your A game and you turn the ball over you are going to lose to them.

    The game will probably be won with the turnover battle.

    I would put that at 95% probability that the team with the most turnovers will lose ...just like it was in 2009.

    Playing against a top rated defense means you better score on most of your possessions to secure the victory,if you fumble or INT and give their offense a short field,it spells doom.

    Brady will also mention something about the Ravens having a great pass rush and name Suggs, Reed and Lewis in there somewhere.

    You guys need to give Bill Belichick more props. Do you know how hard it is to memorize lines? Now imagine memorizing a 30-60 second line and having to change certain variables in that line 16-20 times a season.

    I think you just found Belichick's alternative career path. He should have been a speech-writer.

    On WEEI today, Belichick said "we're not worried about the Ravens. We've already started gameplanning for the Giants, who don't worry us terribly much either. This week in practice we will be getting our ring fingers sized and planning the parade route."

    The only advantage the Pats had in 2009 was homefield for the game. This Raven's team is a bit worse than the one in 2009, and this Patriots team is far and away superior to the 2009 team.

    I feel confident that we are the better team this time around.. but as we all know that TO's and bad mistakes can give the victory to the lesser team. Especially when your playing a solid Defense like the Ravens.. their strength is not as good as our strength but is there weakness stronger than our weakness. I feel like if all goes mistake free the pats win by 12-14 points.

    I heard he plans to say that Ed Reed and Ray Lewis are great players, tough to prepare for, that Ray Rice is always a tough matchup for any defense.

    You heard it here first.

    I heard that Joe Flacco is very capable of making some big plays, that you have to account for him.
