Pittsburgh Steelers safety Ryan Clark made an appearance on 93.7 The Fan in Pittsburgh with Seibel, Starkey, and Miller and discussed the Ravens playoff loss to the Patriots last Sunday.
“To tell you the truth I didn’t watch a play of the game,” said Clark. “To be totally honest with you – My daughter’s 13th birthday is today and we celebrated over the weekend. I was painting canvases the whole game. I definitely taped the other games and my phone rang off the hook when Billy Cundiff missed the field goal. I mean gut wrenching. I know for those guys it is heart breaking, but that is what football is about. You have to make every play and New England made just enough plays to win the game. I know it seems like for the Ravens right now always the bridesmaid and never a bride. It just shows that no matter how good your team is from year to year, no matter how many future Hall of Famers you have, you have to perform every day and winning Super Bowls is hard. You know, if I am not mistaken the team with the most Super Bowls only has 6 and they have been playing football for 80 years, so that tells you how hard it is to win Super Bowls and get to Super Bowls in this league and that’s what that game showed. The Ravens made enough plays to be a winner, but the New England Patriots made more.”
Clark is right, it’s all about a team making the crucial plays in the playoffs. The Ravens unfortuantely haven’t been able to put the plays together to get the job done.
Before ravens fans get mad at Clark calling their team “bridesmaids,” don’t forget he’s gotten the job done and winning a Super Bowl.
