    I was feeling bored at work so I wrote a program to go through every team and find the record of its opposition in wins and the record of the opposition when they lose. In most cases usually when they lose the oppositions record is good. Except for one team the Baltimore ravens. The record of the teams they have beaten is over 500 and the record of the teams they have lost to is under 500. The only other teams to have beaten teams that combined have a record over 500 is the Rams.

    The Raven decide to step up in big games and stink it up against clunkers.

    The Ravens will go as far as Flacco takes them. Their post-season hopes ride on his shoulders. They will be tough to beat if he brings his "A" game.

    Well they probably won't go far then.

    They will go so far as their OC will take them. Thinking he has Peyton Manning under center, they fizzle in the first round of the play-offs. Remembering he has a pretty solid game manager under center and they could make the super bowl.

    Flacco isn't impressive game in game out in the way the great QBs are, but he has probably the best deep ball in the game. With Torrey Smith as the deep threat, it makes the offense that much more dangerous.

    Nope the ravens will go far if they keep giving the ball to Ray Rice.
    against the jags he got 8 carries, against the seahawks he got 5 carries.

    Even Terrell Suggs complained, after the lost against Jacksonville, the lack of carries of Ray Rice.

    They won't be playing the Jags and Seahawks in the post-season. It's very simple: In the playoffs, Joe Flacco will have to make plays. If he does, they will go to the Super Bowl. If he doesn't they won't.

    "Keep giving the ball to Ray Rice" is a very good plan against weaker teams during the regular season and we can only guess what the Ravens were thinking against Jacksonville and Seattle. That was mind-blowing.

    Another big key for them is Anquan Boldin. They will need him to make plays late in playoff games like he did earlier against Arizona and Pittsburgh (2nd game).

    I've been a Flacco doubter for a long time, but I think this may be his year to get the Ravens over the hump.

    I guarantee you if they only give Rice 8 carries against the Niners they lose the game. I think that's the point he was trying to make. Oh, and just for fun, they won't be playing the likes of the Cards and perhaps not even the Steelers.
