Honestly, if Holiday doesn't return two kicks back for a TD we lose by double digits.
The worst part is our best players sucked.
Champ got smoked OVER AND OVER.
Manning gave the game away.
Von and Elvis didn't show up.
And Refs gave the Ravens literally everything.
And Rahim Moore. I will hate him forever. Even if he becomes all world - will hate him forever. I will boo him any time he does anything.
Get over it. This team just got its first real test and they failed. Last year didn't count because the reality was no expectations. This year = Expectations high. Great regular season record which all goes out the window when playoff started. In 97, the team remembered how this felt and it became test No. 2 for them. Go back and listen to some of those guys in 97, especially during the "Americas Game" review of 97. Their resolve was much different and it showed in the playoffs, when those playoff games were tight.
This is not the end of the world, it may just be the start of something better.
