In Response to Re: When do the Ravens STOP crying about losing to the Patriots???
You people are completely deluded. About 90% of the national media who have commented on this agree that the Ravens got totally jobbed. Two of the Patriots three scoring drives would have been punts had these bogus calls not extended them, yet you talk about "if not for the fumble, we would have killed them". Newsflash, the Ravens force turnovers and score ALL THE TIME. Nothing flukey that can be dismissed about it. What if the two bogus penalties extending drives hadn't been called and the Ravens didn't fumble the opening kickoff? Ravens would have killed the Patriots. That line of reasoning makes no sense. Just be happy you got lucky and had an officiating crew hanging on Brady's johnson all game, stay huddled up in your little fantasy worlds and hope you don't see the Ravens again in the playoffs. You might actually need to figure out how to tackle Ray Rice if that happens.Yeah!

And WHAT IF....?
Puhleeeze! Get over it. Brady did
fumble...didn't matter. Ravens did
commit the penalties, and lost.
If you have watched the replay of the call on Suggs as many times as I have, you now that he changed directions well after
becoming disengaged from the blocker. He did not
get carried into Brady by his momentum; he shot for Brady's lower leg - the epitome
of the nature of that rule - that's
why it was called.
Don't even talk
to me about Brady lobbying for the call - the flag was already out (a fact that nobody, including
the "90% of the national media" have bothered to mention). Not to mention the number of times in a game a player, including Ravens players, lobby for calls or non-calls. It happens every other play, for crying out loud...but Brady
is whining when he does it? Give me a break.
I will agree, to a point, that the other call (hands to the face) may have been picky, but
the Pats' Wright was also called for the same penalty with much
less contact...another fact conveniently left out of your arguments and those of the "90% of the national media" (BTW, I think you could use a brush up on your math skills there).
Grow up, take the loss. You could have won if a dozen or more things went differently. They didn't; you lost; get over it.
