    Hello all, long time lurker here!

    Hello everyone, I'm a long time lurker and on the eve of the biggest game of the year I decided to finally join in the discussions.  Looking forward to sharing my thoughts and enjoy the run to the Super bowl with everyone.

    This game tomorrow is going to be very interesting.  While my heart and mind thinks it is going to be a solid win for the Patriots, history against the Ravens shows otherwise.  The way the Patriots are playing right now they are the best all around team the Patriots organization has put on the field since a very long time ago.  You might disagree with Gronkowski being out but they have done very well this season while he has been out.  As for the defense, I like what I have seen the last half of the season, especially with Talib playing and McCorty playing safety.

    While I really feel the Patriots are going to win by a 2 td margin, I feel much safer going on record saying Patriots by 10.

    Re: Hello all, long time lurker here!

    I think the game is either very close or a blow out... the Ravens are riding a wave of emotion to enhance their play... if the emotion works early than it boosts them up later and the game stays close. If the Pats get off quickly then the emotion deflates and the game is not close. If the game is close it will come down to who EXECUTES in the 4th quarter. The signs point to this being the Pats as the Ravens are old and played alot of football in the last 15 days. However, at that point it could go either way. I believe in the end the Pats will win and they will EXECUTE today.

    If the Patriots do not turn the ball over they should win. I know it sounds cliche' but I honestly believe it to be the truth.

    I have to agree with you.  Cliche or no, I believe it's the key to the game.

    Inspired by 1's post, I too am a long time lurker joining in today. 

    With the close games these 2 teams have played recently, I should be thinking it will be another close one.  However, for some reason, I am feeling very confident for today.  I see a close game going into the second half, and then the Ravens defense getting worn down as the game wears on.  I see (and hope for!) a 2 touchdown win for the Pats.

    I also agree with the folks who say turnovers will be key.  If we do what we usually do, that is win the turnover battle by 1, then we should be all set and win comfortably.

    Re: Hello all, long time lurker here!

    Its funny, but I sit in my room (over here) watching the games and constantly say aloud to the TV "do your job".  BB has said that over and over but it rings so true for the Patriots. 

    I picture Baltimore fans saying "we need a big game from Ray Rice" whereas as a Pats fan I don't think they "need a big game" from any player.  If they all just do their job and execute, not turn the ball over, etc. They win.

    Re: Hello all, long time lurker here!

    I agree with the origanal post. I'm surprised at all the people saying the loss of Gronk will kill us, do they not know we have been playing without him for six weeks now? I mean we are a much better team with Gronk, but this happens to every team.

    I remember us making it to the Super Bowl when Law and Seymore went down. We had to go into Pittsburgh with Jarvis Green filling in for Seymore and there was a time when Law I think missed the entire post season (I believe we won the Super Bowl that year).

    I like our chances better with Gronk, but we are playing at home...we are playing well. We are reasonably healthy otherwise. We have as much - if not more weapons on offense this year - compared to last year when we beat them.

    Re: Hello all, long time lurker here!

    Thank you all for the warm welcome's.  Very excited for this game today.  Feeling pretty good about it.  I think last years Super Bowl loss has this team hungry to get back to the big game and try to win that Lombardi trophy again.  Playing at home and the hunger to get back will play a big role today.  I expect a fast start on offense today due to thes two things.

    Are you saying the Ravens score a safety? That would scare me.

    Yes, those would be my picks as well. Scores there are solid too, but I might say 27-19 Pats.
