As a devout Ravens fan, I thought I would share with you my thought’s on today’s playoff games.
Firstly, the Eagles and the Cardinals. The Eagles should clearly win this game, they are tough mentally and physically and have built up enough steam from midseason to beat any team, any day in this league. Being counted out and looked down upon they rose to the occasion and played like a real championship team. A very nice in your face to those who gave up and called for a witching. The Cardinals they are a good team, a team that deserves to be where they are but as far as seasons go they don’t stack up against the best.
Now, I got everything I asked for thus far and more in regards to the Ravens. They have had a great season and have exploded in the playoffs from 6th seed to team to beat. Being a real football fan in my mind I picked the teams to advance that were the most competitive team in the match-ups, not necessarily the teams that give the Ravens the easiest path to the Superbowl. So I got what I wanted a tough as nails, gritty, unearthing matchup at the unforgiving heinz field between the Ravens and the Steelers.
Even though the Steelers beat the Ravens in both meetings during the regular season (One by last second field goal and other by erroneous and questionable review call of a late Steelers touchdown) the Ravens have the defense and a good solid quarterback to ensure a victory.
So there is my quick and very perceptive analysis. Not much else to say really, but GO RAVENS!
P.S. I am still wallowing in the loss that was the Colts season, they had a heck of a run but couldn’t hang on against the Chargers in the end. As much as I want to see the Steelers lose I enjoyed watching them dismantle the Chargers last week in the divisional. But true champions know that you can’t win it all the time, do your best and you’ll be back on top in no time.
