All season long, I have trashed the Ravens as non-contenders. I said they were one of the worst teams to make the playoffs. I said they had no shot at getting past the Broncos. I thought they would fall to the Patriots in the AFC Championship for the second year in a row. Instead, they are the last remaining team in the AFC -- what has gotten them this long? As crazy as it sounds, it is a season and a career full of heartbreak and legacy that has provided the "inspiration" to lead this team to the promised land.
Call it whatever you want, but it is almost like it is the Ravens "destiny" to win the Super Bowl.
