What a nutpunch it's going to be when the Ravens win the Super Bowl and open the 2013 season at home vs the Patriots, Ray Ray will come dancing onto the field in street clothes on last time to fire up the loons in Baltimore and blow out his hamstring in the process.
Please don't allow this to happen 49er's; that said, the Ravens are on a roll and as long as they keep Vanilla Ice upright, looks like they'll win the game to me. Somehow the Ravens will find a way to contain/limit Kaepernick, if as was said earlier this week they did things on defense to confuse Brady, can only imagine what they come up with for Kaepernick.
Pretty amazing in todays NFL that in order to get to the Super Bowl, recent history shows examples of teams that limped through the season, got to the playoffs, make some late season/post season adjustments (fire your offensive coordinator and move some offensive linemen around), get a couple of favorable match ups (Colts/Denver) and go into the championship game with a full head of steam and bingo, you're off to the Super Bowl. The Patriots being without Gronkowski and losing Talib put the cherry on top for the Ravens; once Caldwell woke up from his nap and found out Talib was out of the game, they scored three touchdowns in the second half and won the game.
Throw in Ray Ray announcing his retirement and you've got the perfect storm; the way they were taking on water down the stretch (including that curb stopping at home vs Denver), who honestly thought this team was going to make the Super Bowl, yet here they are.
