Earl Thomas calls his shot

Recommended Posts

Says the Ravens will be in the Super Bowl.

Thoughts?    It's nice to be confident I suppose but I think there is a line that I'd rather not cross.  I admit I'm not a huge fan of these comments.   Imagine your reaction if Brady, Edelman, or some Steeler made a comment like this in the past.

I like the way Lamar talks about how the Super Bowl is the goal.

Players make meaningless guarantees and are wrong all the time.  People only remember the gurantees that are successful.

Earl Thomas isn’t on Marcus Peters level but he’s a clown too

Its really irrelevant! I don't think it makes him a clown.

I'm curious if you are an Ravens fan? Since I find it unusual a fan would have harsh things to say about two of the teams best players.

Also ...over the last 4-5 years we witnessed first hand the results of having a group of saints.

I will say this..... Earl has won a Super Bowl and he knows what it takes to win.

He sees a winner in this team and anybody who has been watching the last 7-8 weeks cant help but feeling good about our chances. I think they;ve proven that they are now the best team in the AFC. If they kick San Fran's ass,  I'd say the best team in the NFL.

I personally like the confidence!

I do note that you still have to play the games and finish the job.

This.  I dont like it when random guys who havent done much in the league make these statements.  The fact that he has won, understands the effort it takes, understands the skills you have to have, understands what a super bowl team looks like.  That matters.
