    Please post your insightful comments, keen observation, knee jerk reactions, and rants and raves before and during today's AFCCG against the Ravens.

    Let's hope for a good game with no injuries. Let's also hope for one more game thread in a couple of weeks!:rocker:

    I know that this is a little early to post the game thread but this is a huge game. I also have people coming over soon so I won't be able to more than take a quick peek at the board before the game.

    I'm headed back to bed for to try and get a little sleep. I'm still in monstrous pain in my back and right leg, and I want to be able to concentrate on the game.

    I hope that New England knocks the stuffing out of Baltimore, and wins by a good margin.

    I, too, hope we get off injury-free.

    I'll try and check back in later. Here's to a great day for all Patriots fans everywhere!

    I want to see the interior of our Oline hold up against Ngata. I'm not concerned with Waters in the least! It's the other side that has me a little concerned. Mankins wanted the big contract, held out and eventually got the fat deal. Now he's either the top paid guard in the league or, certainly in the top 3. We need him to play up to that new contract today if we want to be playing in 2 weeks.

    Offensive line needs to come out pumped today to match the Ravens intensity. Score quick, score often and take away their will.

    Chaos theory 2152, Chad Johnson and Shaun Ellis will have monster games today. After all, BB has been hiding them the whole season for these last 2 games.;)

    I think they need to stay calm and focused. Let that "pumped and jacked" nonsense work against the Gayvens, as it always seems to do.

    Is it a given the Pats will win today? As much as I would love to say "yes," the answer is obviously "no."

    I want the Pats to make last week's blow-out look like a squeaker. But I can accept a loss IF the Pats go down swinging, unlike the debacle of two years ago. And the last two months have convinced me that the likelihood of the Pats turtling up is essentially zero.

    So, in conclusion: may the Patriots give us a game that would make Myra proud.

    Well, I'm sitting at Logan waiting for a flight, which has been delayed so we'll get in the air just before kick-off and be flying through pretty much the whole game. :mad:

    My fault for not figuring this out when I booked the ticket!

    Anyway, just let me say this.

    Win or lose, it's been a FANTASTIC season.

    Watching the Gronk and Hernandez (and Brady and Welker and Arrington's interceptions (and Vince's) and Benny running for all he's worth) brings a huge smile to my face. Yes, there've been things that have made me want to throw a shoe at the screen too (Sergio Brown, Molden, Tracy White, Ihedigbo, Slater and a bunch of other special teamers looking clueless on defense!) but I started following the team in 1981 (2-14, baby!) and all I can do is be thankful for everything Bill Belichick (and Brady and Mr Kraft) have achieved.

    Enjoy the game, folks -- and GO PATS!!!! :rocker:

    I'm glad the site header labeled Spikes and Ninko; I would have never been able to tell them apart otherwise.

    I have a feeling that the Pats D is going to show up big time today. They have been MIA all year, but last week they finally had most of their moving parts and Moore seems to be the player that the secondary needed. I love Spikes especially against a running team. Remember most of the Pats defense was playing high school football the last time the Ravens played in the Superbowl.

    There is only one week of film on this defense and that was against Denver so that really doesn't help the Ravens. Flacco was under seige last week by the Texans, and only the only reason the Texans lost that game was a couple of dumb throws (by a third string rookie QB) and one horrendoues decision by a punt returner.

    Also look for Ridley to have a big game.

    Signing off now, hopefully I be back after the game to say I say right (or to edit this post)

    You're not flying an airline that has those small tv's in the back of the seat in front of you? It would kill me to be flying while the game is being played, lets hope you land to some good news and plan Feb 5th a little better :)

    NFLN teasing their next segment, a look at how the 2009 Ravens went to NE for a wild card game and beat "the mighty Patriots." Um ... do they mean the 10-6 Patriots that had just lost their top receiver the week before? The team that had barely started rebuilding its defense after losing Vrabel, Harrison, Bruschi and Seymour in the off season?

    Is it/was it snowing? Someone just sent me a snippet from a report saying there's snow everywhere and more early tailgaters than they've ever seen before!

    My prediction. Pats lead 21-3 at half, win 38-17. Brady has big game. Flacco throws for 300 + yards, 3 picks, with most of the yards in the second half after Pats open 31-3 lead. Pats get 4 sacks and constantly harass Flacco. Rice runs for 90 yards. National media says no way Pats can win Super Bowl with a defense that gave up 400 yards against the Ravens.
