The Ravens losing the AFC Championship hurt, but this takes away some of the sting.....;-)

i'm not
but then i'm a Patriots fan
Ravens really were poor on clock management....that has to be the most contrived way to miss a simple kick

It was 4th down. Due to the scoreboard being in error, the kicker thought it was 3rd down. That's why he got into position rather late.

sigh

But, hey, we're Wacko For Flacco doing the SB halftime........

so basically, you're saying that a scoreboard not being update is a valid reason for a team making a fundamental error....????
c'mon...everything we've heard from the Ravens before during and after that game stinks of resentment and sour grapes

surely even they knew that there wasn't a new "baltimore rule" that allowed for FIVE DOWNS?

just in case any Ravens players or fans were not paying attention during the game this was the final downs: moronic at best, childish at worst

1-10-NE 23 (:51) (No Huddle, Shotgun) 5-J.Flacco pass short right to 81-A.Boldin to NE 14 for 9 yards ball out of bounds at NE 10.
2-1-NE 14 (:27) (Shotgun) 5-J.Flacco pass incomplete short right to 83-L.Evans
3-1-NE 14 (:22) (Shotgun) 5-J.Flacco pass incomplete short right to 88-D.Pitta
4-1-NE 14 (:15) 7-B.Cundiff 32 yard field goal is No Good, Wide Left,

Wow.....I found a funny little satirical article, posted it for a laugh....and then this.

I note you edited your original reply (since I was correcting your 3rd down statement).

If you read the article.....Cundiff cannot see the down markers. He was paying attention to the scoreboard, which showed '3rd Down'. There had been some confusion on Boldin's catch, as he fumbled it forward and one official signaled '1st dwon'. But....a forward fumble goes back to where the runner was tackled with under two minutes left in a half (the rule goes back to the Raiders 'Holy Roller' against the Chargers in the 70s).

I never made an excuse for what happened. They should have called time-out. But sh*t happens in sports.

Maybe he was distracted by this

Thanks for recapping the play sequence, which I was very aware of before your post. I could say that there should have been pass interference, or illegal contact downfield on 3rd down (watch the replay), but I won't.

The kick didn't cost the Ravens the win. It cost them a possible chance for a win in OT.

jayzus....now I kinda hope the Pats lose. And that Joe's pipes sound good with Madonna and Killer Queen.

Well....at least no one here admitted to being as gullible as a couple of friends who ....actually thought Joe Flacco was going to appear with KQ at the halftime show.

Then again.....would have been better than Madonna (no, we did not listen...just kinda watched as we prepared food items).
