Baltimore Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti emphatically backs the play of quarterback Joe Flacco and guarantees running back Ray Rice will be on the roster next season. Rice is an unrestricted free agent and Flacco's contract expires after the 2012 season. But Bisciotti promised both would be ''part of this team'' in 2012. Bisciotti, general manager Ozzie Newsome, club president Dick Cass and coach John Harbaugh met with the media on Wednesday to discuss the 2011 season and look ahead toward 2012. The foursome would have preferred to be preparing for the Super Bowl, but a 23-20 defeat at New England in the AFC title game ruined those plans. Bisciotti says, ''I don't think any of us are over it.'' But he says the window of opportunity for Baltimore remains open.
  • And could you throw a couple of things out that window Steve thats really not good for this teams chance at a trip to the Superbowl? Well maybe by 2014 it will be a lot clearer for everyone, Somewhere the football gods are sitting around talking about what else? football! and they happens to be watching all the Ravens games for this season and Left god says to right god which one of these games do you like the best, right god says the second game of the season because this would be the way to understand what this coaching staff ability will showcase how not to know how to win when it counts and to make matters even worse Suggs dumped us, And you could see that lack of confidense look on the staffs faces even after this guy Purplexed gave the coaching staff the formula to keep Brady on the sidlines and those guys let it end up bad for this Ravens team. Now if i could just shine the spotlight on Jim and send a pink slip to John we won't have to talk about it while sitting at home with the Ravens watching the Superbowl!
  • Now just hold on! I won't be able to take another season with you being right again! you have to stop being that good at describing this coaching staff, you might have something to look foward to now that Steve and company has hired big Jim, who knows? he knows? how to get to the Superbowl? we know? And you get to coach a young qb kick Cams butt and replace John wow! How much is Steve paying you?
