Ravens Future

A Thought Post Super Bowl XLVII

 

130203230850-joe-flacco-single-image-cutWhether or not you celebrated the Lombardi Trophy as it was presented to the Baltimore Ravens Sunday evening, there are a couple of untold stories.

First of all, the Ravens, who are in history the original Cleveland Browns, have two Championships.  Art Modell, who is praised in Baltimore, will forever be vilified by Cleveland Fans.  The city was finally given an expansion team, but Modell’s desertion from one of the most historical teams and cities in football will be forever unforgiven.

The Pittsburgh Steelers, who have played the Cleveland Browns for more than 100 games, must have celebrated a little bit on Sunday.  They are still the only team that has 6 Super Bowl wins.  San Francisco would have tied them if a “non-call” had not decided the game.  They are also aware that they have a dominance over any team, past or present, that were the Cleveland Browns.

The AFC North has become the hardest fought division in the NFL.  Pittsburgh has dominated the division.  They are 6-2 in the Super Bowl.  The Ravens and Browns together have 2 Super Bowl appearances.

The 2013 season may be interesting.  I cannot see the Ravens winning their division, and most likely not even making the playoffs.  They are old, and Flacco is highly overrated as an NFL quarterback. Looking back at the game against Denver, they should never have been in the Super Bowl.

I cannot see any other team in the NFC going to Super Bowl XLVIII than the 49ers.  They have the complete team, and the complete coach who fits one of the greatest franchises in football.

I am expecting the 49ers and the Steelers to meet next year in the ultimate game, and the outcome will be historic.  Both teams will have six wins, or Pittsburgh will rise above all others with the magical number of 7.

    Niners as the only team from NFC to go to the Superbowl? Pretty sure the Seahawks are a young talented team with a good shot as well…

    It is so funny that even after a super bowl win, the Ravens get zero respect, and Flacco is still not seen as a good quarterback. But guess what? We dont care what you think, we have the trophy
