Default Flacco has never played in Denver correct?

I think this is the case. If so that is another advantage for us.

Yes indeed, but that was against Cassius 'used to be better when playing for us even though he was the last CB on our depth chart and thus traded to Indy to be come their #1 CB' Vaughn!

Cassius never once looked back or made a play on any of those balls. Harris would have picked a couple of those High loopers or at least insured an incomplete further tormenting Boldin who he held to ZERO catches in the first game against us in their house, and grabbed that 98 yard Pick 6 on Boldin as well

Look for another one of those Pick 6 moments on Flake-O tomorrow when the cold starts sinking in and the air gets much too thin to think straight after he's been decked a number of times and constantly chased all over Mile High by Von-Doom .. he'll be ripe to throw up another one of those when trying to come from behind again and either Harris, Champ or maybe Carter will be off to the races again.(

Indy's incompetent pass defense should have grabbed two pick 6s last week that Frozen-Joe had gift wrapped for them but butterfingered them away.

He tends to overthrow his receivers. The ball carries in Denver a bit. Also, Flacco is an incredible boob.

The last time I remember Baltimore being here the Broncos won 12-10. Kyle Boller was mvp with his 4 picks.

Well, Bill Simmons picked the Ravens to win! I think this is more wishful thinking on his part, but, and I know im a broken record, I'm seriously, one hundred percent worried about the weather.

If this game were played in a vacuum or dome, whatever, i dont think the Ravens would stand a chance. Peyton would do his thing. But we have a 36 year old QB coming off 4 neck surgeries (and one who has admitted that he needs the glove because his grip is not as good in the cold) who relies on pinpoint accuracy to move the Broncos.

When the weather is good, or even cold (KC game), he's proven he can do this. But sub-20 degree temps? He's going to have more trouble gripping the ball, i dont see how this is avoidable. And if he's off a little, this will be detrimental to the Broncos.

I'm worried. Tell me I'm wrong, give me good reasons to be wrong, please tell me I'm wrong.

weather affects both teams equally. Broncos can run the ball too.

The elements will be better tomorrow than they were during that game about 10 years ago (2002 I think) in Denver when Manning led the Colts on two late field goal drives to win the game... but honestly if a Bill Simmons prediction is causing you more worry I'm not sure I can help.

Simmons prediction isnt causing me worry. He just happened to mention the same thing ive been mentioning all week, so it was fresh in my mind again. It doesnt concern me what Peyton did in 2002. He wasnt coming off neck surgery in 2002. His past playoff record in the cold is a dumb argument, I agree. Too small a sample size, and it ignores every other factor that went into it. But he's already admitted to having less of a grip on the ball due to the cold. And its gonna be WAY COLD tomorrow.

Not worried at all. PM has already anticipated the cold weather thing by wearing the gloves the past 2 weeks to get used to them. If he just now came out with them, I might be worried, but that is not the case. He (and all Broncos) have been preparing for all aspects of the playoffs for a few weeks now.

You're wrong.

Many of the deadliest plays in our arsenal are short and medium range passes anyway. Peyton has been practicing with the glove, and his game doesn't generally depend on flinging bullets all over the field, his passes are about finesse and timing. Aka - easy to catch.

We are the same team that beat the **** out of the Ravens a few weeks ago, and we are about to do it again. Tomorrow will be awesome as we choke on purple tears.

It's not just the cold, it's the lack of humidity also.

no thanks, I answered your question. You might wanna try understanding the answer I provided. But since you are can't understand, I'll essplane. The weather will also affect Flacco. That is, yes, Manning may be affected by the weather and it may hamper the throwing game, but this same problem will also affect Flacco who is already a terrible QB on the road. Ergo, the playing field is level, with quite possibly an advantage to the Broncos. Also, the Broncos have been very effective running the ball so should Manning struggle passing the ball, the Broncos can always run the ball a little more. So, I just provided you with two reasons why you are wrong in your assumption that this cold weather will somehow benefit the Ravens by hampering Manning's ability to throw the ball.

Plus, other posters keep handing you your hat on this issue.

Dude on the Weather Channel said he heard on Twitter the Ravens team bus slid off the road on their way to the hotel.

AGAIN, the "level" playing field is what I'm worried about. I dont care that Flacco will have issues throwing the ball, he's ****. I AM concerned with the Broncos having to shift a game plan because Peyton can't throw as well. If Manning's ability to throw the ball is hampered, of course that's an advantage to the Ravens. I dont care how good the Broncos running game is. That's preposturous to suggest otherwise.

Ok, so you are saying that a crappy passing game (Flacco) getting crappier isn't an issue (basically makes the Ravens 1 dimensional, no?) but a great passing game getting "maybe" affected by the weather and dropping Manning's completion percentage a few points is somehow a huge advantage to the Ravens?
