    Never able to win a big game. Billick is simply pathetic. Ray Lewis talk and dance too much for what he brings to the game. The Colts have faced the two worst team of the AFC to make the playoff.

    I kind of felt that way all year but bought into their defense. Upon further review, their O wasn't very good at all this year against a fairly weak scheudle.

    Anyway, it would have been easy beating Baltimore in Baltimore. Now it just gets a little tougher, if we're blessed to have that chance.

    I agree if the Patriots somehow make it past the Chargers I'd rather face the Ravens in Baltimore then the Colts in Indy. The reason being the Colts know the Patriots very well as if they are a division opponent. The Ravens offense is so offensive that I picked them to lose anyhow.

    I've been saying all year that the Raven's offense is not that good but wow, I didn't know they were that bad.

    Defense played a great game. They allowed 2.5 points more than their average for the year, and they forced 2 turnovers. Unfortunately, they have the second worst and most poorly designed offense in the NFL, behind KC.

    Never? They did cruise through the playoffs in 2000 - 2001, plastering the Giants in the super bowl. I realize that was pre-Belichick/Brady but it's not that long ago. They did suck today though on both sides of the ball.

    They had momentum going before that terrible call on Ogden. That call probably saved the game for Indianapolis. Of course, it didn't help that McNair was determined to play every bit as badly as Manning and match him pick for pick.

    I saw the Ravens D getting the ball shoved down their throats when the game was on the line. That defense talked so much crap this week about how they were gonna beat up Addai and Manning. Afterward they just tried to play it all down by talking about how they didn't give up a TD.

    They couldn't run the ball effectively and they couldn't stop the run when they had to. They gave up 100 on the ground. For all the sh't talkin' they did, Ray Ray & Co. got punched in the mouth in their own house. THAT WAS BEAUTIFUL.

    Not even. Two turnovers in field goal range resulting in field goals are on the O not the D. They gave up 9.

    Contrary to belief, the Balt. D took away what the Dolts do best. Did that mean some running yards and time off the clock? Yup. But this loss is on that lack of offense the team had tonight. Period.

    great post. I agree whole heartedly. Now, if we can only do the same to the only team left that likes to talk a ton of ****. I want this game for the Pats and our fellow fans so badly it's hard to explain. I live in Cali and what I have been going through has been enough for me to shoot myself in the head.
    It's amazing to me how ignorant the Chargers fans around me really are. One even tried telling me that Bruschi was a ***** for coming back from his heart problem the way he did. :wha:
    That's how ignorant these bandwagon bastards really are.
    WOW! I am so pumped for this game. :violent:

    Well, I'm sure you realize by my screen name that I'm a Chargers fan. But I ain't talkin' stupid crap like the people you're encountering. I don't know any bandwagon Chargers fans. I live in Northern California so Chargers fans are few and far between. I've been with 'em since 1981.

    And the truth of the matter is that Chargers players aren't taking the Pats lightly. They might be confident, but they aren't saying things like "I'm going punch Addai in the mouth" or "I'm gonna pour hot sauce all over Peyton Manning". That's what Ravens players were saying.

    I am confident the Chargers can handle whatever the Patriots throw at them. But we will see what Cam Cameron and Wade Phillips have come up with.

    May the best team win tomorrow.
