Yeah, If This Game Was In Indy I Would Be A lot More Confident But Joe Flacco Has Never Been One And Done In The Playoffs.

There is always a first!!! Pats never lost in the divisional round coming off a bye week, that came to an end in 2010 after the Pats went 4 straight times (2001, 2003, 2004, 2007) without a loss off a bye week. Flacco has gone 4 years too, right, without a one and done??? :)

For the Ravens to get the 3rd seed, the Patriots would need to lose, against MIA, in Foxboro, with a bye and potentially HFA on the line.

 

There wasn't a chance.

Yeah But There Game Started At 1 Pm While The Patriots Game Started At 4 Pm. So They Could've Won That Game And New England Could've Loss Later All Thought They Didn't

my guess is they thought den and ne would handle their business.

 

The deal was they did not want to chance the fact the Texans could lose to the Colts (silly them :)).

 

So, they went assuming Texans would win and thus the Pats could tank their game, ala 2005 if they knew they were at the No.3 spot to get to the No.4 spot if both the Texans and Ravens won their games in the 1 p.m. ET slot.

 

The Ravens could only control their end of the bargain i.e. making sure they retained the No.4 spot.

Or it could be that they just wanted to get some players rested given they had no shot at a bye week.

I don't think the Ravens  OR Bengals  seeding was going to change, no matter what the outcome of the game.

Could be wrong, but that is how I understood it...  :dunno:

Ravens put more faith in N.E and Den winning their games. Ravens could have used the bye week though so who knows, maybe they are trying to avoid N.E for as long as possible

Well, that is true, but that wasn't going to happen, and I think they knew.

I guess what I had heard was the Bengals seeding would not change, and evidentally that was true.  They won and are still 6th seed.

Put Vontae on Tory and try not to let Rice dominate and I can't see them scoring many pts. At the same time I can't see us scoring many points.

I think you're reading into it too much.  The Ravens were guaranteed a playoff spot and the division crown.  They took their starters out to keep them healthy rather than because of the implications losing the game would have on their playoff matchup

actually the ravens would still have had the 4th seed and be playing the colts. even if they won they would still be a game behind the texans. only way they would have got 3rd seed is if new england got beat which wasnt going to happen.

I honestly think they need to change the rules on location of playoff games. I believe who ever has the best record of the two teams playing should get home field for that game. 

 

Ravens - 10-6

 

Colts - 11-5

 

Ravens lose 4 of their last 5 games, barely win the division and the colts get one more win then the ravens and yet the colts have to travel to baltimore. sorry but i feel the team with the better record should be rewarded for having the better record and get the home game in the playoffs. its just my opinion

Had the Ravens won & NE lost the Ravens had the tie-breaker with their 31-30 win over NE.

I disagree with the whiners about calling it resting your players.

#1 you are letting ANYONE dinged up / HEAL UP

#2 you are limiting risk of injury for top players in a meaningless game

There is only ONE GOAL at seasons start

Winning in the Playoffs

I can argue both ways. You win your division you host a game, period. But you also get 12-4 colts going to 8-8 chargers like in 2008.

Reggie Wayne just said on the Reggie Wayne Show that the Players are well aware of the fact that the Ravens wanted to play them.

And you think sending in our scrubs and getting trashed yesteday would have been better preperation for Baltimore than what we witnessed yesterday? We've tried resting, and we've won nada. Pagano / Grigson called it just right. Polian / Dungy / Caldwell got it wrong.

Hopefully we move on with a win, i dont think they ment resting starters was a insult as much as not wanting injury and thinking new england would not loose at home with alot to play for aganst miami. But you never know! leggoooo indy!

Then you might as well scrap the entire "division" setup and put everyone in one big group. Not only would that be incredibly dull compared to the current set-up, but it would be considerably LESS fair. Unless the teams played every other team in the conference home and away each year, there would be no reasonable basis for determining who actually had a better year than who.

 

In other words, the Colts had a slightly better record than the Ravens essentially because they had a dramatically easier schedule than the Ravens. They won their division and should be rewarded for it. The Wild Card teams are the funky added attraction put in by the league to make things a bit more interesting. They haven't won anything, and should simply be thankful that they made the playoffs.

As others have said, the Ravens may simply have just wanted to rest their starters and did not want to risk injury. I don't see anything wrong or insulting about that.

yea, some of the local reports there were saying the same thing, "let's get Indy, they don't have Manning and Cincy has better defense, special teams, & o-line" and they keep repeating, "No Manning, No problem".......... Ugh.

i'm sorry but the only thing about Balt that scares me is Reed and Lewis.  I enjoy Rice, but we are battle tested against Foster x2, McCluster and a slew of other good backs.  T. Smith isn't a world beater.  He's not either one of the Johnson's or Marshall.  Couple that with the fact that we have an ace up our sleeve in Pagano and I am sure he knows their D forwards and back.  Yes I understand they made tweaks but really its the same Balt d from years past, just older.

 

 

I don't want to sound overly confident but I think Indy is gonna surprise Baltimore and give them more reason to hate us, lol

If true...this is gonna be GOOOOOD!  lol  They could be setting themselves up. 

 

Given the circumstances, you can't really blame them for preferring to play Indy.  But we all wanted the Ravens just as much.  ;)

I completely agree. Winning the division should only guarantee a playoff game, not a home playoff game. Plus, letting the team with the best record be seeded higher would add importance / competitiveness to late season games. This is a change the NFL needs to make and I cannot believe the talking media heads don't make it an issue.

Another way to look at it. If the Colts were in the Ravens spot, Jacksonville( haha I know Jags in the playoffs pretty funny thought) was in the Bengals spot, and the Bengals in the Colts spot. Who would you rather play in the 1st round. A division foe who always plays you tough or a young over achieving team. Now I realize the Ravens have been pretty good against the Bengals, but a division game is always a tough 1.

suggs vs. castonzo scares me. Suggs owned him last year easily his worst game as a colt. For the record I am a castonzo fan too but that match up scares me.

Ravens have an old roster and a lot of injuries... they rested because they needed the rest IMO

    • Colts will rely on the draft instead of being big free-agent spenders
      Indicator a re-tear is 30% more liklely to occur,   I am not sure how it may or may not have affected the second rehab depending upon type of graft and rehab routine etc...  I think  the team  decided early to bring him along more slowly and shelve him all of 2003.  They had Travis Henry.      USA Today was a couple months after injury, in 2003 still within the initial reports time frame where everyone was still reporting the PCL tear. and the story wasn't wasn't as detailed.  The Baxter was a detailed report from a Rehabilitative Therapy firm in August of 2014 specifically on his case.
    • The next team for Peyton manning????
      I keep reading he has till March something to announce yet NFL network last night on the news scroll said Elway says its not up to us and Peyton can take the time he needs to decide   I hope he retires in perfect fashion      If he announced it it would of upstaged the win for tea mates, as per many news outlets
      PM didnt want anythiong to be taken away from all just enjoying the win
    • The next team for Peyton manning????
      I hate it when they bring up the 1 & dones or choke   He took the team multiple times to leads with or without late drives to get that lead only to see the defense or special team & / or coaching decisions to ruin it with less than a minute left sometimes less than 40 seconds if remember right , Thats all u should have to ask of your QB   case in point   Vs jets late drive gets lead with  1 minute left + / - 10 - 20 seconds   we kickoff , special team allows for 2nd time in game backup returner cromartie a 40-50 yard return, Jets get some yards , 30 seconds maybe left , maybe less time too , Jets look like they  are going to take long  FG with kicker that has poor % from that range , Caldwell calls time out, Jets now can reconsider and plan a play, defense allows Sanchez no less to make a throw and easy FG from what the 18 or with 18 seconds left -    Great special teams , great D , great coach call all in last drive of game for a loss   Know exact description maybe wriong but its pretty accurate account of what happened   Just take same wash  rinse , repeat a loss , again not his fault   Here is hoping Colts staff can see what could of been and what is needed to do for Luck   BUILD A COMPLETE TEAM , thats 1 with balance, doesnt need # 1 O or D but really good on both sides of the ball   Elway turned the team 180 degrees in 2 years to win SB    Hate him if u want but he saw an issue and fixed it, LEARN COLTS STAFF< LEARN u squandered alot of Peyton years, dont do it to Luck, QB's like that dont always come back to back
