I don't fear this game at all. The Ravens have Ray Lewis. We have Chuck Pagano. That pretty much neutralizes the emotional intensity on both sides IMO. Can we just play ball now? Thanks. It's a lot of smoke & mirrors if you ask me. The Colts are still going to win.
I don't really agree with this at all.
Ray Lewis has been on the Ravens team for as long as it has been around. He is the emotional leader of our team, and has been for over a decade. He will never play a game with these guys ever again after this post season. If you don't think that will fire up the entire team, and the crowd at M&T Bank, then you will be sorely disappointed on Sunday. Expect to have a hard time hearing the announcers when your offense is on the field, because there will be seventy thousand people yelling as loud as they can in order to help our team pull out the win.
Chuck is with you guys for the long haul. Even when this season is done, you will still have him on your sideline. This is nothing to diminish the struggles that he has faced this season. I have all the respect in the world for Chuck, and I was incredbily disappointed to see him leave Baltimore. I just don't see the motivation that your team garners from his illness in the same light as the leader of our team never ever playing another NFL game in his life.
