The sweet taste of victory

I was sitting by my computer screen and watching the Raven-Steeler game. For 58 mins, it looked like all the other games I have seen since 2008 I became a fan of Ravens. We fought, we leaded early and we somehow gave the lead away. I was frustrated. I was questioning whether I was just wasting my time again. 

Then came the last drive.  Watching Flacco drive the offence done the field was exciting...and nerve-wracking. Let's face it, it was never easy for Joe Flacco. Not that it should be easy, hell, it's the Pitt Steelers, the #1 pass defence in the league. But for Joe, he usually doesn't have much help. Remember in 09 the Viking's game? How we stormed back from a double digit deficit? I remembered Joe was hit like a red-haired step child, to borrow the phrase, and keep delievering good passes despite being hit. He drove us to a makable winning field goal. Only Steven Hashka, whatever his last name is, missed it. That would be a nice coming-out party too, against Brett Farve, but all for nothing. 

It didn't get easier for him. Remember the dropped touch down passes by our recievers in the Steeler game in 2010? Remember the fourth down pass vesus Patriot's game that would give us a first down had it not just bounced off the chest of TJ? For that matter, remember the other game vs Patriot, Mark Clayton dropped that pass? 

Hell, it was not easy last night in the final drive either.  Torrey smith dropped the touch down pass. Aquan Boldin dropped the first down pass. But this time, it's different. Joe kept coming back. Torrey hanged on to the touch down with 8 seconds to go. 

All I have to say is, Great job. Let's keep it up. Now I am firmly a believer.
