You can talk all you want about "teams of destiny", but it all boils down to one essential fact: winning teams usually out-work and out-practice their opponents.
Ray Rice's "Hey-Diddle-Diddle" 4th-and-29 conversion, Joe Flacco's 70-yard miracle bomb to Jacoby Jones with 30 seconds left in regulation in Denver... these sorts of things seem to reek of "destiny", but they do not happen if the team as a whole is not superbly conditioned and prepared to create them.
I found it remarkable about the Ravens that they just completed some of their toughest and most grueling practices since training camp this past Thursday and Friday...and with the Super Bowl still more than a week away.
John Harbaugh's work ethic is all over this team. If the Ravens don't get the big prize in New Orleans, it will not be because they lacked the will to work hard hard enough for it.

Baltimore Ravens’ quarterback Joe Flacco is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent in 2013, but odds are the Ravens will use their franchise tag on Flacco for 2013.
There are two reasons for this prediction.
The first reason, the Ravens almost always wait to negotiate big contracts until after the season is over. Take defensive tackle Haloti Ngata who received the tag in...
Waka Flacco Flames shooting for the MOON.
It is understandable because his stock will never be higher. Coming off beating Peyton Manning and Tom Brady this is the time for ask for the biggest contract in NFL.
Here is the report according to Pro Football Zone.
ESPN’s John Clayton says if Flacco gets hit with the franchise tag, the Ravens will owe him $14 million in 2013. He’s...
Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco is looking to win his first Super Bowl next weekend, and he’ll have to beat one of the best defenses in the league in order to do so. San Francisco ranked second in points allowed this season and third in yards allowed. They had one shutout and held five opponents to 7-or-fewer points during the regular season.
When asked to compare the 49ers’...
The Baltimore Ravens have an opportunity to place the franchise tag on Joe Flacco this offseason. Every time the Ravens use the franchise tag on a player, that player usually signs a major contract by the end of the offseason. Terrell Suggs in 2009, Haloti Ngata in 2011 and Ray Rice in 2012 are proof of that prediction having a strong chance of becoming a reality in 2013. What will...
I'm inventing a new word to describe the 2013 Pro Bowl game--- "Slackluster"...
If you watched any part of this debacle you know what I mean...and yet, I agree with the players (and coaches) who obviously know that slacking is the only logical methodology in a pro football All Star game where the risk of endangering multi-million dollar contracts through meaningless...
While every year, EA Sports releases a video of Madden’s prediction on who will win the Super Bowl, this year we have gone in a different route. Frank Schwab at Yahoo!’s Shutdown Corner, found a video of a Tecmo Super Bowl prediction. According to the Tecmo Bowl prediction, the 49ers beat the Ravens 31-17.
In the end, Ray Rice led the game with 72 rushing yards. Joe Flacco...
The Super Bowl is less than a week away, Colin Kaepernick and the San Francisco 49ers will face off against Joe Flacco and the Baltimore Ravens.
Until then enjoy photos of the 2013 NFL Pro Bowl Cheerleaders, these girls work hard and enjoy their time in Hawaii.
With the Superbowl just over a week away, it's time for a little preview before we make our prediction for the big game this time next week!
The offensive performance of the Ravens is completely reliant on how well Joe Flacco can continue to play. We've seen the past few weeks that when he is playing with confidence and hitting his...
Frank Gore and Ray Rice took different paths to the Super Bowl, but here they are in New Orleans – two elite running backs that are the driving engines on offense for the 49ers and Ravens. Gore’s path has been one of resilience and determination that’s finally giving a great warrior his just due as one of the NFL’s best, while Rice has known nothing but success since he entered the league.
No NFL fan would argue that today’s league is a passer’s league, a quarterback’s league. And with each new Super Bowl winning quarterback, the media quickly anoints that player into the “elite” status.But the favored quarterback to win this year’s Super Bowl has not even started a full season in the NFL. After starting Quarterback Alex Smith suffered a concussion in November...
Eli is better than Peyton. Trent Dilfer? He’s better than Dan Marino.Every year the media fuels the foolish fire claiming wining a Super Bowl makes a quarterback elite. Once a quarterback wins, BOOM! He goes from a good quarterback to magically this amazing elite quarterback. One game, whether the Super Bowl or not does not define a quarterback’s eliteness.I would take Peyton...
Once the Baltimore Ravens knocked off the Denver Broncos and the possibility of a Peyton Manning versus Tom Brady AFC Championship was eliminated, the next best option for the Super Bowl immediately became a Baltimore-San Francisco match-up. In the AFC Championships second half Joe Flacco looked very Tom Brady-esque. Anquan Boldin shed years off his [...]
