Ryan Clark: Ravens are always the bridesmaid, never the bride

Baltimore Ravens v Pittsburgh Steelers Getty Images

The Steelers and the Ravens are fierce rivals, but Steelers safety Ryan Clark sounded a little sympathetic about Baltimore’s plight when asked to talk about the AFC Championship Game.

Clark said on 93.7 The Fan in Pittsburgh that he didn’t even watch the game because his daughter was having a birthday party at the time, but he was quickly alerted to the result.

“My phone rang off the hook when Billy Cundiff missed the field goal,” Clark said, via SportsRadioInterviews.com. “I mean gut wrenching. I know for those guys it is heart breaking, but that is what football is about. You have to make every play and New England made just enough plays to win the game. I know it seems like for the Ravens right now always the bridesmaid and never a bride.”

The Ravens’ heartbreak came two weeks after the Steelers had a heartbreaking loss of their own, and Clark said he can relate to how the players in Baltimore are feeling.

“It just shows that no matter how good your team is from year to year, no matter how many future Hall of Famers you have, you have to perform every day and winning Super Bowls is hard,” Clark said. “The Ravens made enough plays to be a winner, but the New England Patriots made more.”

In the NFL, one play can be the difference between bridesmaid and bride.

    The Ravens swept the Steelers…

    Patriots fan here and huge hatred for the Steelers as an AFC rival. But, I agree with Clark who actually has won a Super Bowl ring and been to two of them. I respect the words of winners way more than big mouth losers like the Ravens who talk a lot and have won NOTHING.

  3. captainvilfo says: Jan 26, 2012 1:00 PM

    I wouldnt want t-suggs as my bride thats for sure..

  4. raven410 says: Jan 26, 2012 1:01 PM

    Patriots fans talking trash like they’ve already won the Superbowl..Wow.

  5. johntonioholmes says: Jan 26, 2012 1:03 PM

    I hope people actually read what Clark said. He was practically offering condolences.

    The title sounds like he was trash-talking, but that’s not the case.

  6. youguysaretotalnerds says: Jan 26, 2012 1:04 PM

    @patriotinvasion

    pretty sure they won a super bowl before your franchise ever did.

  7. dylanb13 says: Jan 26, 2012 1:04 PM

    Ryan Clark is a good dude. It’s nice to see sympathy towards a rival team, especially when that team swept the Steelers in the regular season.

    Being a Steelers fan, I’m glad he’s on our side.

  8. steelwheeler says: Jan 26, 2012 1:06 PM

    @elwaysbrain…
    Everyone should understand that beating the Steelers is the Raven’s main goal every year. so your point is that by the Raven’s sweeping the Steeler’s they actually are the Bride. right??

  9. therickstar says: Jan 26, 2012 1:07 PM

    Ummmm, the Ravens did win a Superbowl

  10. jimbobobjr says: Jan 26, 2012 1:07 PM

    He’s right. That simple.

  11. YouMadCauseImStylingOnYou says: Jan 26, 2012 1:07 PM

    Winning Super Bowls is even harder when you can’t beat a fullback playing QB.

  12. crawdaddy1212 says: Jan 26, 2012 1:11 PM

    You make it seem as though Clark was taunting the Ravens when in fact he was sympathizing with their situation.

  13. fittytuckin says: Jan 26, 2012 1:14 PM

    Your team getting Tebowed and losing twice to the Ravens would your team the flowergirls.

  14. tombreck says: Jan 26, 2012 1:15 PM

    That what you get when you steal a franchise from another city, the baggage that comes with it. Ozzie is a good GM and HOF TE but ask him about 1987,1988,1989 when the franchise was in Cleveland. He is a chiller just like in Vegas.

  15. pikindaguy says: Jan 26, 2012 1:17 PM

    I’m pretty sure the Ravens won it last decade, which is more than a lot of teams can claim.

  16. denverhighrize says: Jan 26, 2012 1:18 PM

    So the Steelers must be the flower girl.

  18. djstat says: Jan 26, 2012 1:21 PM

    As a Ravens fan, Clark was not being disrespectful and based on the last couple years he was n ot wrong. its the Ravens job to become the bride. All you haters out there…lighten up. As for Pats fans? You will be a bridesmaid too in about 10 days

  19. johntonioholmes says: Jan 26, 2012 1:24 PM

    fittytuckin

    Yes, clearly you did not read what he said. Besides, the Steelers have been the bride.

    The Ravens just can’t get past teams with great quarterbacks, which is what Clark meant. They’ve been second fiddle every year.

    Clark was just saying that has to stink, especially with back to back gut-wrenching exits from that playoffs.

  20. rmc1995 says: Jan 26, 2012 1:26 PM

    The Ravens won a Super Bowl in 2000. The Patriots last won a Super Bowl 2004. The Pats lost perhaps the biggest upset in Super Bowl history the last time they made the dance. Now front runner Pats fans come in and pick up the all-mighty Pats speak as if they’ve won three of the last four Super Bowls. Typical of the new front runner Boston fans. Hey patriotsinvasion why don’t you get a new Red Sox hat, jump in a pool with it on,and leave it out in the sun to dry to make it look as if you have been a Red Sox fan for more than 3 years.

  21. purplepain5 says: Jan 26, 2012 1:30 PM

    Does he realize the Ravens won the Superbowl before? Probably too dumb to use the internet and find out

  22. rr2000k says: Jan 26, 2012 1:31 PM

    Just like you and the Pro Bowl. You wouldn’t be there, unless Ed Reed bows out.

  23. mostlombardisintheleague says: Jan 26, 2012 1:32 PM

    The Purple Browns, how is Skillet Hands,…..um I mean Lee Evans doing these days ? As been said many times, the season is 16 games not 2. If your only goal is to beat the 6 Time SuperBowl Champion Pittsburgh Steelers, go ahead and try to win those few games, and every season you will be watching the SuperBowl in the same spot as you are this year, on your asses !!! You’re damn lucky to have gotten past Houston who had a rookie QB and you lost to the Pats who had one of the bottom defenses in the league. Please watch the re-run of last year’s playoff game when you had a 21 point lead at the half – and the Steelers blew your f’in doors off in the 2nd half. Seems to be a post-season pattern for you, doen’t it ?

    Can’t wait to see the Patriots get the hell beaten out of them by a team with a better passing attack than the Ravens and who can actually play defense.

    Ravens and Steelers will be making them bridesmaids next year too after the Giants do it AGAIN

  27. patriotinvasion says: Jan 26, 2012 1:36 PM

    @rmc – Yea, because Baltimore is such a better sports town than Boston. Lol. I love how the jealousy of Boston leads all other fans to say “well, well, you just jumped on the bandwagon”. Shut your mouths. I’m 27 years old….I’ve seen every second of every Patriots game since 1993. Didn’t matter our record at the time, I was watching.

    Baltimore has 2 sports team and a load of crack and crab cakes. Go to Camden Yards for $10 a seat and cry about the Ravens losing again in the playoffs.

  28. ottograham says: Jan 26, 2012 1:37 PM

    @purple pain

    enjoy holding on to your championship from over a decade ago. guess you will until you win another… like we said week 1 you guys won your championship when you beat the hell out of us early in the season. fitting end for a city that deserves little.

  29. patriotinvasion says: Jan 26, 2012 1:40 PM

    @patriotinvasion

    ___________

    Yea, a whole 12 months prior. The Ravens were the Browns when I started watching football. They had one great year 12 seasons ago with a tremendous MLB. Other than that, you guys have won NOTHING. Just another one year wonder team. The Patriots and Steelers have been dominating the league for a decade, winning 5 of the past 10 Super Bowls and playing in 7 of the past 10!

  30. bhindenemylines says: Jan 26, 2012 1:42 PM

    Big words from a guy that was watching the AFC Championship game from his couch and not the sidelines.

  32. aschittino says: Jan 26, 2012 1:45 PM

    Fitting how the steelers lost to a full back playing qb. Have fun watching that re-run of a 80 yard bomb on the first play of overtime.

  33. granadafan says: Jan 26, 2012 1:45 PM

    Hilarious. Clark’s comments would be great except his team was trounced by a fullback playing QB in the first round. How embarassing was that?

  34. aschittino says: Jan 26, 2012 1:47 PM

    And the patriots also were part of the biggest upset in superbowl history. You know when they los.t to the Giants

  35. daryllh says: Jan 26, 2012 1:49 PM

    Ravens fans posting here realize that sweeping a team in the regular season means nothing if you aren’t playing in the last game of the season.

  36. mikeeg says: Jan 26, 2012 1:50 PM

    Sort of hard to take this serious, after they got TEBOW’d

  37. brad3060 says: Jan 26, 2012 1:51 PM

    Thats as close as the Ravens will ever come with Flacco at QB.

    And you keep holding on to those championships from three decades ago and keep pretending like Terry Bradshaw had anything to do with your current team.

    Getting Tebowed was a fitting end to your season.

  42. aschittino says: Jan 26, 2012 2:02 PM

    Come on the flacco comment is getting old. Anyone who watched the game objectively knows flacco out played brady in that game. Flacco kept the Ravens in the game.

  43. vikesfansteve says: Jan 26, 2012 2:10 PM

    In the 70’s the Vikings were the groom & the SB was the runaway bride. 5 NFC Championship losses later they are the fat bridesmaid with adult onset acne.

  44. steelcurtainn says: Jan 26, 2012 2:21 PM

    Clark is right! The Ravens had their chance and they blew it. Their gonna find out its much harder to get back to that point next year. Its just too bad they got Cundiffed by their own kicker.

  45. ravenskoenig says: Jan 26, 2012 2:22 PM

    ======================================
    They were actually part of the 2 biggest upsets, the other was the Patriots over the Rams.

  48. runrickyrun34 says: Jan 26, 2012 2:36 PM

    Clark’s comments really aren’t that dramatic or antagonizing. He’s said worse during the pre/regular season. He’s quoted as saying “he feels for those guys.” You can’t read that and take the often over used quote regarding being a bridesmaid and completely rip the guy. It’s an easy saying to throw out there in a situation where you go to the playoff’s 4 straight seasons, AFC Championship twice, and come up short. If it wasn’t for the Ravens/Steelers rivalry it wouldn’t have even made it on the site. Like someone else said, the title is misleading (like most).

    As for some of the claims that Flacco won’t make it to the Super Bowl, The Bus carried the Steelers to Ben’s first Super Bowl. He’s developed into a stellar QB but you don’t need an Aaron Rogers QB to win the Super Bowl. Anyone is capable of winning/going to a Super Bowl. The baseless claim that he (or anyone else) won’t is pretty old because you can’t back it up with real stats. There are too many variables. Based on that arguement, HOF Dan Marino was a crappy QB and Joe Namath was better than him because he won a Super Bowl. Regardless of whether a team is super defenseive/offensive minded, the team who plays better will win. That simple.

    And the Pats/Steelers past 7 of 10 Super Bowl arguement, you’re exactly right. Both are the dominant teams of the 2000 decade thus far. And in the 1990’s it was the Cowboys and 49er’s. For all of those who sit here and either boast about Super Bowl wins or hates on teams who have won Super Bowls recently, it’s all relative and always comes and goes. But for now it’s just the way it is.

  49. drew05 says: Jan 26, 2012 2:38 PM

    Clark sounded truly sympathetic…

    Isn’t he the guy that watched his own team lose…from the sideline…because something serious “might” happen to him if he played in the high altitude?

    Doesn’t sound like a guy that should be talking at all. Even if his intentions were good.

    Go Eagles.

  50. melikefootball says: Jan 26, 2012 2:44 PM

    You have to feel for the Ravens fans, you know they felt this was there year. With beating Pittsburgh twice and the Steelers not in the hunt you know they were feeling good. clark is just saying the obvious, Ravens played better but did not come through at the end when they had their chances.

  51. henrykissingerisgod says: Jan 26, 2012 2:45 PM

    Brady played an elite defense and flacco played wide receivers and practice squad players…

    ===================================
    Wow, I’m not a fan of Clark because I think he’s a head hunter. However he’s a talented player who demonstrated a lot of courage by trying to play in the Denver playoff game.

    The last time he played in Denver he became violently ill and lost his spleen and gall bladder in addition to losing 30 pounds because of deprivation of oxygen to his major organs.

    The Steelers made a very wise choice in not allowing him to put his life at risk.

    I hope you’re merely uninformed.

    how is clark sypmathyzing?? hes being manipulative in his delivery by not being to douchey but is still flat out doggin the ravens..who by the way swept the steelers a made it to the afc champ game..typical steelers talkin trash even against a team that spanked em..so this is what they do when their not molesting teenage girls

  57. j0esixpack says: Jan 26, 2012 2:58 PM

    It’s tough not to notice him referring to the Ravens in the feminine sense

    Given the amount of sour grapes and whinning from the players, coaches, consultants and fans, that’s probably appropriate.

    Come on the flacco comment is getting old. Anyone who watched the game objectively knows flacco out played brady in that game. Flacco kept the Ravens in the game.
    ===================================
    QB is about leadership, not stats. Brady, by his own admission, did not have his best day. But when the Pats were down 4, he took them the length of the field and put them ahead on their next possession.

    Flacco showed that he is also an excellent leader. The Ravens got the ball near the end of the game and Flacco lead them down the field, threw what should have been a game winning touchdown pass, and had them in position for what should have been a game tying field goal. Anyone who blames Flacco for that loss is a fool.

  60. BTC says: Jan 26, 2012 3:16 PM

    This headline is such a brazen attempt to stir the pot that it’s sad. Nothing Clark was that incendiary or even untrue–and I say that as a Ravens fan. The bridesmaid statement wasn’t even his focus.

  61. cincyalldaway says: Jan 26, 2012 3:21 PM

    @ patriotinvasion

    Get one thing straight here dude. The Patsies aren’t going to the SB because they made more plays than the Ravens. The Ravens gave you that game by missing the field goal. If that game goes to OT you and your girls are home on the couch watching the SB! Quit being such a typical New England jerk!

  62. elwaysbrain says: Jan 26, 2012 3:30 PM

    @steelwheeler
    No. My point is that if you’re being swept by another team, you have no business talking crap about them. If the Pats said that it would have been OK, a little low but OK, they earned the right to talk trash. But the Steelers? Beat the Ravens first, then you can talk trash about them.

  63. ravenator says: Jan 26, 2012 3:43 PM

    ryan clark your team was swept this year. Your team was tebow’d this year in the playoffs. you didn’t even play you were taking a seat on the wood because your scared of the altitude. you really have no room to talk. in fact you just sound ridiculous. no wonder you’re the most overrated safety in the league

  64. kokoskmr says: Jan 26, 2012 3:48 PM

    I think that what Clark says is the same thing that Ray Lewis said in the locker room after the loss. Winning a Superbowl is HARD. The Ravens basically relaxed a half second (Lee Evans) before they accomplished the next required step. Asa consequence, we lost (Yeah, Cundiff’s miss was the next huge lapse).

    Bottom line: If I know the Ravens organization, the Ravens have already begun the process of winning Superbowl XLVII.

  65. vincentbojackson says: Jan 26, 2012 3:49 PM

    Hope Joe Flacco doesn’t read this. We all know how emotional he gets without a daily dose of positive reinforcement.

  66. nfl1818 says: Jan 26, 2012 4:11 PM

    As a Pats fan I have no idea why patriotsinvasion has to chime in with such an obnoxious comment – we have all lost heartbreakers and I think 99% of ravens fans and players have been dealing with it well – plenty of normal boasting b4 the game and now moving on – all the sensational stories have been generated by quotes taken out of context and stories designed to inflame, some of those on this site.

    I think I speak for all Pats fans when I say the obvious that we were 1 inch from losing and a few yards from OT. Luck always plays a role.

    Clearly Clark feels badly, even for his rival. So many things have to go right to win it all.

  67. rexryanseacrest says: Jan 26, 2012 4:26 PM

    What a surprise…the internet tough guy with the boston accent is at it again. Try posting something productive next time instead of all your Boston-is-better-than-your-city banter. No one cares who your favorite team is and no one cares that you have been rooting for them since 1993. Go read an article about the Pats and stop sweating the rest of the AFC.

    For all the idiots saying the Ravens are the old browns that’s wrong. The Ravens are the OLD COLTS. That History of Superbowl Championships belongs to the city of Baltimore. That city’s NFL TEAM played in the greatest championship game ever,won another superbowl and choked to the Jets. Then the team was stolen and when the NFL came back to Bmore another lombardi was won in 2000.

    That’s 3 world championships for those who care

    Thanks for kind words Clark and Go Giants.

    Excuse me? Excuse me? Over rated? Are you frickin kidding me? Ray Lewis is on your team. I guess you would know a little something about over rated players. and keep thumping your chests about sweeping the steelers this year…The clock finally struck twelve on your team .The absolute luckiest team injury wise, and officiating wise had Karma hit with that missed FG. ray ray will never get another sniff of a Lombardi.

    He actually had a better season than Reed. Less pics, but gave up fewer big plays.

  72. johntonioholmes says: Jan 26, 2012 8:01 PM

    ravenator

    The Steelers gave up the fewest big plays in the league, which means Ryan Clark was the best as the last line of defense…

    Ed Reed, meanwhile, gave up 8 plays of 40+ yards. He wasn’t even close to being second in the league for allowing the fewest big plays.

    You can’t even say Clark is overrated. #1 tackler on the #1 defense in the league, something Ray Lewis has gotten to say only once in his career, despite having his tackle stats inflated year after year.

    If you were smart, you would have read what Clark said. He wasn’t talking trash, he was just saying that the Ravens have to be depressed because they keep making it to the doorstep of the SB. They ust can’t get past teams with good QBs.

    It’s too bad for them that every team isn’t playing with a 3rd string rookie.

    Beat the Ravens first and then you can trash talk? Give me a break!

    The Ravens wouldn’t have been able to talk since 2006 if that was the case because that was the last year that they won the division.

  74. patriotinvasion says: Jan 26, 2012 9:46 PM

    @nfl1818 The Ravens fans on these comments did more than a little “boasting” the week before the game. All they did was guarantee a repeat of 2009 was going to happen and yapped about Brady being a girl (despite being one of the top 3 QB’s ever, and best ever with a win next Sunday)….yada, yada. I see nothing wrong with rubbing a little salt in the wounds of big mouths who have nothing to show for it.

    “I see nothing wrong with rubbing a little salt in the wounds of big mouths who have nothing to show for it.”

    Yeah…Brady had a lame performance……….and got a gift. You should be bowing down thanking the football gods for the gift. But when the Giants blow you guys out next week………payback is hell!……the Giants OWN the Pats! LOL

  77. edisbetterthantroy says: Jan 27, 2012 7:30 AM

    Every Pats fan that I’ve seen or talked to this week have been very complimentary of the Ravens. So, these comments mean very little. Nothing posted on this message board surprises me. Especially how 90% of my comments come down immediately.

    For those who think the Ravens won’t “Sniff” the Lombardi Trophy again, do you really believe that? The Ravens are an elite team that competes for the AFC Championship every year. The core group of players are very young. With the Exception of Ray and Ed, you have all pro talent at many other positions.

    Ngata, Suggs, Webb, Cody, Kruger, J. Smith, McPhee, etc on Defense…All young

    Rice, Flacco, T. Smith, Pitta, Dickson, Grubbs, Yanda, Leach, etc on Offense…All young

    See you next year Pats and Steelers. I have a feeling one of these three teams will be playing for the Super Bowl next year. As usual…

  78. blacksabbathrulesall says: Jan 27, 2012 11:21 AM

    Since the Ravens came into the league the Steelers have swept them 4 times to the Ravens 2.

    Steelers have won 9 Division titles to the Ravens 4.

    The Steelers have been to the AFC Championship game 6 times to the Ravens 3 with the Steelers beating the Raven in title game in 2009.

    Steelers have won 2 Superbowls and lost 1 compared to the Ravens 1 Superbowl win.

    The Steelers have beat the Ravens 18 times and the Ravens have beaten the Steelers 14 times.

    But who is counting,right?

    @jamaltimore:
    the colts you speak of play in indianapolis. the ravens that play in baltimore were the cleveland browns before they moved to baltimore. i get what you’re saying about the championships belonging to the city, but the ravens ARE the old browns in a different city. couldnt call them the colts because that franchise already existed (which is why the browns were able to use that team name once the league approved a new team), so they called them ravens to distance themselves from the browns.

    And just what did that get them?

    If that constitutes for you a successful year, then its sad that your goals are set so low. I’m sure if you asked the players, they’d be happy if they lost both of those games but still won the Super Bowl.

    Ask the Patriots who won every game a few years ago -beat everyone they played – except the Super Bowl. Would they consider that a successful year?

    “ryan clark … you didn’t even play you were taking a seat on the wood because your scared of the altitude. ”

    Um, after what happened to him in 2005 when he played there, I think it is reasonable to be “scared”. In case you are too stupid to have heard, he carries the sickle cell trait, and as a result of the low oxygen levels in Denver (mile high), he had complications that resulted and nearly a week in the hospital and the loss of his spleen and gall bladder – and he was actually lucky that it wasn’t worse. So, um, get a clue moron.

    Ryan Clark also said “next time I hit someone I might as well put them to sleep for good”

    Sounds to me like he would like to kill someone. Good guy, good role model. Will he pose with guns next like James Harrison?

    And Ray Lewis is the murderer?

    The Ravens have been the most consistent team in the league since Harbaugh got hired, but Patriots fans are still talking trash and pretending like they didn’t get outplayed and Steelers fans are forgetting about their loss to a college football team.
