    Re: AFC Championship... Ravens vs Patriots Game Thread

    To help put things into perspective, after a big loss and far more tragic head and other injuries, here are words from the inimitable Noam Chomsky on sports:

    Well, in our society, we have things that you might use your intelligence on, like politics, but people really can't get involved in them in a very serious way -- so what they do is they put their minds into other things, such as sports. You're trained to be obedient; you don't have an interesting job; there's no work around for you that's creative; in the cultural environment you're a passive observer of usually pretty tawdry stuff; political and social life are out of your range, they're in the hands of the rich folks. So what's left? Well, one thing that's left is sports -- so you put a lot of the intelligence and the thought and the self-confidence into that. And I suppose that's also one of the basic functions it serves in the society in general: it occupies the population, and keeps them from trying to get involved with things that really matter.

    Folks bottomline here is Wes Welker killed us with that drop and it is two year in a row now.  Also, Talib injury hurt and seems he can not stay on the field.  In the end, the performance was dreadful and they should be ashamed of themselves.  Need to look at bring a DC in since the defense once again was a paper tiger.

    Complete devastation from that loss.  Very difficult to watch that team lose like that.

     

    There has to be a season of honest reflection at Patriot place.

    Bottom line is   No Pressure On Flaco..

    He was having fun  :(


     I do agree with this. The Pats need a pass rusher. ' Havn't really had one since Seymour left. Flacco's 2 second half TD drives were with no pressure in the pocket and with Talib out in the secondary, the Rasvens went right after the short Arrington back there and that was that.

    We lost and the Ravens won.  And I say that BCOSTIGAN is correct in stating that "Pollard is a PSYCHOPATH!".  He must be kicked out of the league and Super Bowl.  It is horrid that the NFL allows this psychpath to distroy the spirit of the game and the level of competition.

    Bradys passer rating was 63% so one single dropped pass by Welker doesn't make up for all the passes he threw in the grass.

    They stunk in the 2nd half. They were sucking wind.

    Pats offense sucked. Welker drop changed the game. Welker gone, played his last Pats game.  2 critical drops last 2 years. They will not sign him. Talib injury killed them also.

    Well, this sucks.

    Anyone have an explanation as to why Ridleys drop was a fumble when he was on his butt?

     



    watched in slow motion frame by frame and ball started to come out just before he was down - very close.

    Brady looked old and cold. Like Bert Favre in 07, and Manning last week. Pats better load up with some receivers and a back as Brady had 2 seasons left. 37/38 yrs old is it. He looked 50 tonight when it was time to run.

    So what's wrong with communists?  All you ever hear is people complaining about our government. Americans have to make up their minds. Which  do you want?  Life for the people, or life door the rich?

    Not running for the 1st down was the end. He's finished.  He doesn't have the complete desire anymore.  It was 5 yards. Couldn't get it.

    The two punts w/in the Ravens 40 yard line in the first half -- stops by the Ravens -- kind of set the pace for the game. No Tom Terrific in the 2nd half or 4th Q. Offense ran out of gas. 13 points. One TD? Ravens had them buttoned up, and Pats style, seized the opportunity. Better team won.
