Ravens-Packers one-liners

Four turnovers helped send the Ravens to a 27-14 loss to the Packers on Monday night.

The Ravens played without Ed Reed and backup S Tom Zbikowski was beaten for a pair of touchdown catches by Packers TE Jermichael Finley.

An inability to sustain drives led to the Ravens possessing the ball for less than 25 minutes.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh was unhappy with the way his defense played in the red zone.

The Ravens were penalized 12 times for 135 yards, including five defensive pass interference calls for 90 yards.

Said Finley of the Packers’ ability to exploit Reed’s absence, “He’s a great safety and you’ve got to capitalize when they don’t have a weapon.”

Packers CB Tramon Williams was guilty of pass interference twice, but came up with a fourth-quarter interception in the end zone.  

Packers rookie LB Clay Matthews had two sacks, three tackles for losses and three quarterback hurries on an active night.

An apparent first-quarter fumble by RB Ryan Grant was overturned on a challenge by Packers coach Mike McCarthy and kept the Ravens from taking over with good field position.

Special teams was a sore spot for the Packers as PR Jordy Nelson couldn’t generate any good returns and K Mason Crosby missed a field goal.

    Raven’s Maniac,
    Where are you you classy guy. Class of the AFC North huh? haha. yeah that was a classy classy loss last night. It’s definitely you guys that are the Class of the division. Not the defending champs with two superbowls in the past four years, or the current division leaders that have SWEPT THE DIVISION. No. It is clearly you. So as the classiest fan of the classiest group of fans, what knid of classy things do you have to say today? I’m sure it will be top class. You stay Classy Raven’smaniac.
    hahahahahaha
    that being said. What an ugly game. I saw a lot of pass interference that didn’t get called as well. On one drive there should have been like 4 penalties on GreenBay that weren’t called, but the ravens scored on that drive so it didn’t really matter. Way to go GREEN BAY!!! To the rest of the ravens fans, I’m sorry but people like Ravens Maniac and Tony Swallowsthegoosa make me hate all of you. hahaha

    I am liking what I see with this young (#1 ranked) defense. The rookies Matthews and Raji are going to be forces to be reckoned with. The offense still has issues but they are getting closer each week. Penalties and Special Teams need to be fixed. I expect the Packers will contend in the postseason, and if that is at the expense of the Vikings I will enjoy it even more. The Packers are young and getting better. The Vikings are all-in and getting desperate.

    The Pack LBs looked good and the O-line held up against a fairly good defense. The game sure was a penalty fest though. As hard as it is to admit, it looks like the Pack is a playoff team — congrats cheesers. It will be pretty entertaining if the Pack, and all the posters who trash the Vikes, have to cheer on the Vikes in the Giants’ game.

    Why would anyone have to cheer for the Viqueen’s in the Giants game? The Packers control their own destiny and are in great shape. They are basically tied for the first wild card spot and have to play the Bears and Seattle. After this past weekend and last night the Steeler’s game looks like just another game. I’d say it’s more entertaining to watch you have to root for the guy who was your enemy and “overrated INT throwing machine”for 16 years every week!

    Did anyone else see the Raven lineman try to trip Tramon Williams after his interception in the end zone?

    While there were many good things in this game, this comment is about just one burr under my saddle.
    “… and Mason Crosby missed a field goal.”
    Might shorten your work time if you were to insert the word “critical”, make the phrase into a macro, and use it for the starting point of every Packers post-game report. Occasional bad holds notwithstanding, MC never gets (consistently) better. He’s not dependable, which is the worst characteristic I can think of in a kicker.

    Thanx for the creds man. Pack still needs to work onthose penalties–BIG TIME.

    Agree totally. They need to be “kicking some tires”.

    Ravens fans can’t be classified as the worst fans….or even delusional. When you’re a moron, you’re not competent enough to be classified as a bad or delusional fan. Ravens fans belong in Baltimore, the charm city of morons. All I saw was tough talk yesterday, then a pitiful performance last night. Don’t worry Raven fans. There will be a belated X-Mas gift for you all a few days after X-Mas, when Big Ben lights up your so-called secondary. BTW, tell your lousy coach to put some tissues in his pocket. Dude looks like he’s gonna start….sniff….sniff….to cry when they show his ugly mug on the sidelines. What a doofus. My God, if I lived is that cesspool of a city, I’d jump off the nearest bridge.

    Fellow Packers fans, act like we have won before huh? Don’t talk trash, no matter what other “fans” have said. Just shows you are just as bad as them. Show some of that “class” you speak of.

    Whatthehelldidyouputinyourass?:
    Thats the right attitude to have dipshit! lets hope the team looks at these as just another game.
    What a foolish comment.
    There are no gimmes in the NFL anymore the Bucs game should have proved that to you.
    Enemy? Grow up! He’s just a football player not a freaking Iraqi insurgent.
    Good god. are you 12?
    Keeping smoking the crack, and overlooking teams….you just might find your team on the outside looking in.
    If not, the Vikes will show you where the door is…IF you get in.

    @ Katamanduu
    Only a classless Steeler fan comments on a topic that has nothing to do with them and talks trash….keep it up the tough talk you robust little man you…….oh, and speaking of “tough talk” (as you put it) …. have fun “unleashing hell” in Cleveland like you did this past weekend to Oakland…..
    On another note…congrats to the Packers….. although it was a sloppy game, they deserved the win! Good luck next week vs. Chicago….

    I think the Pack look like a playoff team, the penalties could hurt them.
    Scenerios out there now are the Pack would go to Saints if they win their first round, than hoping the Vikings win their first round (second round actually)
    Than NFC champ game in Mn,
    Pack at Vikes!!
    Good God, I would watch this game in a hospital room!
    Also to the other posters saying the Pack wouldnt have to cheer for the Vikes when Giants play them, yes they would.
    Look at the schedules, the Pack would have to win out to avoid this, can you realistically claim this would happen?
    Arizona, Pitt-with Palamalou, theres at the least one lose there, wouldnt you agree?
    Either way you will only see this through your rose colored glasses.
    But I say, wow what a game that would be!!
    THUMP THUMP THUMP THUMP………………….

    —————————–
    Why would the Packers need to win out? Are you assuming the Giants are going to win out?
    When you look at the NFC playoff picture as it stands now, you can basically distill it down to this:
    There are four realistic contenders for three spots (NFC East champion and two wildcards).
    The contenders are the Giants, the Cowboys, the Eagles and the Packers. Green Bay, Dallas and Philly are at 8-4. Giants are a game back.
    The Giants, Cowboys and Eagles all have remaining games against each other. That means SOMEONE in the NFC east is guaranteed to be losing some games.
    Green Bay has beaten Dallas head-to-head, which is the first tiebreaker.
    The next tiebreaker would be NFC record. Right now Philly is 7-2 in the NFC, Dallas is 6-3, Green Bay is 6-3 and the Giants are 5-3.
    So Green Bay leads Dallas and the Giants on tiebreakers and they also lead the Giants by one game in the standings.
    It’s too soon to tell what the upcoming weeks will bring, but it’s waaaay too soon to say Green Bay needs to win out. In fact, the Giants have the tallest hill to climb in terms of making that week 17 game meaningful for anyone. Right now they’re one win and a tiebreaker behind Green Bay.
    One other thing. In the same post you implied that the Packers might need to win out to make the playoffs… And then you came up with a scenario that has the Packers beating the Saints.
    And Packers fans are the delusional ones with “rose colored glasses”?

    If they won out they would play the Saints, because the Vike would play the Cards.
    All I’m doing is writing what I read on SI.com
    Go there and tell them they are wrong.
    This was the first time I ever gave the Pack a compliment and your such an idiot that you still get pissed at me?????
    Go figure!

    You tend to have that effect on people. It’s probably because you’re such a flaming homer that even your fellow Viking fans hate you, although it’s hard to be completely sure.
    You also forgot to say “THIS IS OUR YEAR” again. Since that’s the only thing you’ve ever said that had any substance to it, you need to not disappoint.
    Unless, that is, you’ve finally realized the truth. This isn’t your year. You’ve never had a year. Maybe in five, when Childress is gone, you will. Not until then though.

    poor bigsky. dude you are in for a heart ache.
    and as for the scenario of the pack needing the vikes to win vs the jints to make the POs. i personally will never ever ever, for any reason, ever, no matter what, root for the vikings to win. but i will sure as hell root for the giants to lose;-)

    What? If the Packers win out they’ll play the Saints? The Saints will more than likely have a bye and home field advantage. That means they’ll play the lower seed of the two teams that advance from the wildcard round, right?
    At this point there’s several teams in contention for that. And NO ONE–and I do mean no one–should be making predictions about who’s going to win in the wildcard round when the seeds aren’t even set yet. I think you misread that SI article.
    And I’m the idiot for calling you out on your stupid comments? Try again, bigsky. As I’ve said before, I’ll call you an idiot if you act like an idiot. I don’t care if you’re a Vikings fan, Ravens fan or Packers fan. Act like an idiot and prepare to be treated like one.
    I don’t hold back for fans of my team like Pervis would. That would make me a hypocrite.
