It's deja-vu all over again for the Ravens.Nearly one year after a Super Bowl appearance literally slipped through their hands in the end zone of the 2011 AFC Championship game against the Patriots, the Ravens will have their chance at redemption this Sunday.After shocking the world and doing the impossible by knocking off Peyton Manning and the white-hot Broncos in Denver, the Ravens got to sit back and watch their fate unfold for next Sunday's AFC Championship game.For the third time in quarterback Joe Flacco's career with Baltimore, they are a mere 60 minutes away from glory.It's been a rough year for the Ravens with a plague of key injuries, head-splitting inconsistencies (especially offensively), a three-game losing streak, and to top it all off, the retirement announcement from their heart and soul, Ray Lewis, less than a week before their Wild Card matchup against the Colts, which they won 24-9.Yet throughout the road bumps and headaches, the Ravens have fough...

Baltimore Ravens: Joe Flacco has earned a long-term contract from Ravens

Joe Flacco has had his share of critics during his career. He is finishing up the final year of his rookie contract and could become a free agent at the end of the season. Flaccon has long-sought a long-term deal from the Baltimore Ravens and after his performance on Saturday against the Denver Broncos, he has earned it. It’s is doubtful that the Ravens will allow Flacco to hit...

Flacco's Agent Calls Him "Top 5 Elite"

Joe Flacco is a dope, we all know this, but he is playing for more than just a Super Bowl this year. Flacco’s contract is up at the end of this year and he and his agent think (out loud) he’s a top 5 elite quarterback and on Sunday he’ll aim to prove just that against the Pats always questionable secondary. So far Joe Flacco leads all 2012 playoff quarterbacks in total...

Joe Flacco Beat Peyton Manning In The Play-offs, Where Did This Flacco Come From?

The Baltimore Ravens move on in the NFL play-offs. Flacco must have taken a shot of the Ray Lewis Adrenalin before taking the field in the Mile High City. Flacco performed like the quarterback he always wanted to be. The Ravens played the Broncos like they were in the hunt for a super bowl title for the Ray Lewis going away party. They were able to capitalize on a couple of Manning ...

Potential 2013 Denver Broncos roster changes

The 2012 season is over for the Denver Broncos, and now we look onto the potential 2013 Denver Broncos roster changes. The Broncos will potentially be kicking hay on 18 players who hit free agency in 2013. The number 1 player the Broncos need to nail down is Ryan Clady. I can’t emphasize this enough, about just how important he is to this Broncos team with Peyton Manning running...

Broncos Intend to Pick Up Option on QB Peyton Manning’s Contract

Denver Broncos president John Elway told reporters that they intend to pick up their two-year, $40 million (total) option on quarterback Peyton Manning‘s contract, according to ESPN. This is hardly surprising given how things went for them in 2012, but it’s still a considerable amount of money to be paying anyone. “I don’t think he’s going anywhere,” team owner Pat Bowlen...

Broncos still making sense of loss

The intended target for Peyton Manning's last pass of the season didn't sleep much after the game that brought Denver's season to an unexpected halt. ''I kept playing it back in my head,'' Brandon Stokley said Sunday, as he discussed the loss in a rapidly clearing locker room. ''It's like a bad dream that keeps playing over and over.'...

Denver Mayor Michael Hancock insists he is not trying to renege on a bet after he injured his leg at a stock show. Hancock lost a bet with Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake that requires him to perform linebacker Ray Lewis' signature pre-game dance after the Denver Broncos lost to the Ravens. The mayor's spokeswoman, Amber Miller, initially said Hancock suffered...

Broncos, Seahawks: Nightmare at the 31-second mark

When you think about it, 31-seconds is not a lot of time. Most commercials run about 30 seconds. “Wait a minute,” is composed of two 30-second halves. But, as we know, 31-seconds can last an eternity, just ask Peyton Manning and Russell Wilson. Both teams were 31 seconds from victory and advancing to their conference championship game. But 31-seconds can be an eternity in the...
