"I lost a tooth! I married a whore!": Like Dr. Stu Price, you know the Ravens are waking up this morning wondering what exactly went on yesterday. They are certainly the superior team. They're supposed to have a better defense. Flacco's supposed to be a pretty good quarterback. And what happened? The Seahawks sent them back to Crabcake City with blood coming out of their mouth and maybe even Heather Graham on the team plane.
"You are a f***ing moron! Your language is offensive. F*** you!": While I couldn't read Pete Carroll's lips from our seats in section 339, I have a sneaking suspicion that exact exchange happened between Pete and the refs. In particular, when Chancellor was flagged for a hard hit. You look at that again, and it just infuriates you. If you can't hit a guy in the shoulder/torso region, where you can you hit him? Yes, his head is going to snap back because when you suddenly stop an object in motion, an equal and opposite reaction occurs. It does not mean the object was hit in the head!!
"One of the side effects of roofies is memory loss. You are literally too stupid to insult.": A combined quote for both our lines and for the refs in general. A memo to Carpenter and Okung, pay attention when Tarvaris is telling you the snap count. It's kind of important. Failing to do so causes these things called false starts and you two are flagged for way too many of them. Defensive line, the idea behind the crowd getting loud is that it causes the offense to jump. All you have to do is watch the ball, then go. Do you notice what happens to the crowd noise when you're offsides? I think you do. To the refs, feel free to hide it a little more that you're obviously trying to tip the game in one team's favor. A penalty on every other 3rd down that allows Baltimore to keep drives going? Failing to throw a flag when Baldwin was thrown down 3 feet out of bounds? Pete Carroll's wallet is happy the Hawks won since I'm sure his post game comments would have cost him $25,000.
"We don't want to call attention to ourselves! [Phil, while driving a squad car on the sidewalk and using the loudspeaker] Attention! Attention!": Uh oh. Now with this kind of win, teams might actually prepare for the Hawks. They won't be taken by surprise anymore. This doesn't bode well for the birds of Renton.
"Funny fat guy fall on face!": While I'm not entirely sure if either of them or funny and they're not exactly fat, but I did love it when Marshawn juked both Ray Lewis and one of the defensive tackles right out of their jocks as he got a huge first down that helped seal the victory.
"Hey guys, when's the next Haley's comet? Who cares, man. Do you know Stu? I don't think it's for like another sixty years or something.": We may not see such unexpected wins like the Giants and Ravens in the same season until the next Haley's comet, so let's enjoy this win. We could very easily lose this momentum on Sunday in St. Louis as we visit the Financial Planning Dome. So let's appreciate this for what it is and maybe look at it as a step in the right direction
