Saints-Ravens one-liners

NFL Divisional Playoffs - Baltimore Ravens v Indianapolis Colts Getty Images

Baltimore’s 30-24 victory was one of the biggest wins John Harbaugh has had as head coach.

The Ravens were furious about a hit on QB Joe Flacco that didn’t draw a flag.

Ravens RB Ray Rice, who had a career-best 233 total yards, took off his shoes in the locker room and told reporters, “I’m going to give them to my mom for Christmas. I’m going to sign them and give them to her on top of her other gifts.”

The Ravens who deserve the most credit for the offensive performance are the five starting offensive lineman: Michael Oher, Marshal Yanda, Ben Grubbs, Chris Chester and Matt Birk

Ravens LB Ray Lewis fired up his teammates with a motivational speech.

Said Saints QB Drew Brees, “Regardless of what happens with those other teams, we still control our own destiny. Whether that’s still a shot at an NFC South championship or a wild-card spot, the fact of the matter is we have a lot to play for, a lot to fight for. So you just keep grinding.”

The Saints were doomed by missed tackles.

If the Saints are going to get back to the Super Bowl, they’re probably going to have to win three playoff games on the road.

    I love this web site. If you post anything remotely perceived as detrimental to the integrity of the league (even if it’s true) your comment is deleted.

    All these games are fixed by the league or Vegas, get a clue! Track the success of teams that have built a new stadium. ynot

    RE: No flag for Flacco

    With the new rough play rules there is a growing trend among players to beg for and expect those 15 yard penalties.

    I agree with the intent of the rules to protect the players, however the players are starting to act like soccer players who take dives.

    Shut up and play tackle football. Stop whining for a call to give you an advantage you didn’t deserve.

    @nflgreedleague.

    LOL. Produce the body if its true.

    I have some homework for you: How old is the Superdome compared to other NFL stadiums? Who plays there? Who won the last Superbowl?

    Steelers fans can sympathize with the anger after the no call. Welcome to the other side of the NFL.

    GO STEELERS!

    The flag on will smith in the 4th qtr was atrocious ,so much so they wouldn’t show it again on the replay.If they wanna hand out some fines they should start giving them for terrible calls.
    And what’s with having a former ravens coach with an obvious bias call the game, billick was on thier nuts the whole time.

    The intentional grounding call on Brees was atrocious as well. Not to say it cost the Saints the game, or anything. But it was clear the Refs weren’t going to call it until Suggs and other Ravens begged for the call. They didn’t even throw the flag for 20-30 seconds after the play ended.
    Brees was out of the pocket and the pass made it past the line of scrimmage.

    Um, did you see the play, Flacco was already down & here comes this nimrod flying in & spears him in the back a few seconds after the play. Flacco isn’t like Brady or Manning, but that was bad. Now Brees got a call that was atrocious, nothing close to roughing the passer. I guess Saints fans missed that 1!

    Who Dat? Who cares! Saints talked smack all week about the Ravens, but we see who got smacked in the end!

    GO RAVENS!!!

    Flacco also after he was sacked and on the ground got a knee to the head from the second defender piling on. This is not a cry for a flag were a hand grazed the helmet.

    This was propaby the most animate I ever saw Flacco. It even looked like his lips formed the “mofo” word … totall out of character …

    as for one of the biggest wins the Harbaugh had with the Ravens … how about beating the Steelers in Pittsburgh, how about the Pats in NE in the playoffs, how about three on the road wins in the playoffs with a 1st and 2nd year rookie QB… all of those are certainly better than a regular season win against the Saints who have not won against the Ravens in some years as I recall.

    Were you watching the same game ? The pass landed 3 yards behind the line of scrimmage…..

    You must have been watching another game, because if you had been watching the game you would have wondered where a flag was as well. Flacco NEVER calls for flags. But when a player comes in, leads with the helmet and plants his forearm into the back of the QB’s helmet while he is on the ground and there is no call then that is sad…. When Flacco is so animated which he never is about anything then you have to think he might have a point. If he cried about calls constaintly then i would completly understand people bashing him for it, but this is the first time i can ever remember him calling out the officials over any call, not just a roughing call.

    PS: go back and watch it again ( if you have even watched it ) the defender commited to the tackle AFTER Flacco’s knees had hit the ground….. sounds like a bad call, but hey they happen. I am just glad it did not cost them the game!

    @ xxwhodatxx

    If it wasn’t shown, how do you know it was atrocious?

    @ aaronwolfeman

    Grounding is often called “20-30 seconds” late, after the officials get together to discuss whether the criteria for grounding were met.
