Question of the Day
“These situations, they don’t define a person. It’s the response that defines somebody,” he said. “I can either go ahead and roll over, or I can pick myself up — knowing it’s going to sting — get back to work and prepare for next year.”
Ah, next year. Middle linebacker Ray Lewis promised he will return for a 17th season, but the roster will inevitably be altered from its current state.
“You know it’s going to happen but you don’t know which guys it’s going to be,” quarterback Joe Flacco said. “It’s tough to be in our shoes and go through that. You hope they bring as many people back as they can.”
As soon as he arrived home Sunday night, Flacco shaved off the Fu Manchu mustache he grew in the latter part of the season.
He played brilliantly in defeat at New England, which could help to blunt the criticism he received this season and perhaps get him a new contract before his current deal expires next year.
“The first four years I’ve played here we’ve gone to the playoffs every time, won a game,” Flacco said. “I think the last two years I’ve played well in the playoffs. I think if you watch the film and you’re a guy in this organization, you can say I’ve played well.”
“It [stinks] because it starts over,” linebacker Terrell Suggs said. “Back to the training and when are you coming in for workouts and stuff like that. And then eventually training camp is going to open again, and it just (stinks) because we’ve done so much. Just to fall short, it’s bad.”
Is it better to get to the playoffs and lose, or to never get there at all? Remember the Buffalo Bills, who lost four straight Super Bowls?
The Ravens do.
“The last couple years kind of felt like the Buffalo Bills, in a sense,” Carr said. “Especially this year, I really felt like we had the talent to do it. But we just didn’t do it.”
