An Exciting Ravens Season Ends Too Early

January 19, 2009 |

What can I say that hasn’t already been said on the airwaves, message boards, and blogs?

The Darren Stone penalty…

Jared Gaither’s false start on 2nd & 1…

Cam Cameron’s questionable play calling…

Flacco’s interceptions…

We don’t have enough playmakers on offense…

We can’t stop Ben Roethlisberger…

The ridiculous roughing the kicker penalty…

Sweed’s hit on Ivy…

Clark’s hit on McGahee…

Ed Reed’s disappearance…

It really comes down to one simple concept: the Steelers are just flat out better than the Ravens.

Although it’s difficult to imagine after a loss, there were some positives to take away from the game.

Willis McGahee and Terrell Suggs played out of their mind. They put on two of the best performances in Ravens playoff history. Bart Scott, who played his projected last game as a Raven last night due to contract issues, played a great game as well.

And although Flacco didn’t play up to snuff, the offensive line certainly did. Sure, James Harrison got the best of Jared Gaither at times, but he was the defensive player of the year…what do you expect? On the whole, I thought the offensive line played well as a unit.

This team is very young and very talented, and it’s a very exciting time to be a Ravens fan.

Despite the losses to Pittsburgh, the Baltimore Ravens had a magical season.

Consider all of the joy and good times they brought this city…starting with Joe Flacco’s touchdown run against Cincinnati and ending with a tough loss to the hated Steelers, this season was an emotional roller coaster ride. And I think we can all agree that there were more good times than bad ones.
