Is anyone else looking around at all the major sports sites(ESPN, NFL.com, etc...) and seeing mostly if not all the stories being about how the Giants are looking amazing, how the 49ers are a great story(rightfully so), and how the patriots are going to fare against either the giants or the 49ers. It seems that nobody can be bothered to care that the ravens are also in a championship game and everyone seems to just write off the game as a patriots win. This may just be me seeing less coverage then there is but i do believe the ravens are getting the least amount. Just for clarification i'm only talking about the sites that report on the whole NFL, not an area-specific site(i.e. baltimoresun.com)
In my mind the ravens never really get a lot of respect around the league and it wont happen until Joe Flacco becomes a pro bowl quarterback, because that is all ESPN cares about these days. Nobody talks about how the ravens may make it to the Superbowl again, they just talk about how Brady and the Patriots are "this" much closer to a 5th Superbowl in 11 years. In fact, the only things Ive read about the ravens on ESPN.com is the stuff posed by Jamison Hensley on the AFC north blog, so he has to talk about the ravens.
As you may have noticed(because i just did), this is mostly a rant at ESPN but i just really had to get this off my chest
