The 2012-13 Ravens were an emotional bunch, full of character.
That never played out more than after they won the franchise’s second Super Bowl.
Here are some of the best quotes from after the game:
“We beat the future in Andrew Luck. We beat the past in Peyton Manning. We beat the present in Tom Brady. Then we beat the best show on offense in the NFL in the 49ers in Colin Kaepernick. The toughest road in these playoffs, we did it. We did it together.”
“It’s always the goal to win the Super Bowl, and by me being able to come home and play, that was like icing on the cake. You can drop the cherry on it, the strawberry and the sprinkles.”
“We get to ride off into the sunset, babies. This is it, man. This is almost surreal. We did it, boy. I love you guys. This is the ultimate. This is the ultimate. This is the ultimate. Daddy gets to walk you into college. How awesome is that?”
Head Coach John Harbaugh
“The meeting with Jim in the middle was probably the most difficult thing I have ever been associated with in my life. I am proud of him.”
“This is real. My high school coaches were here. My family’s here. Everyone’s here to see this moment. This is something that no one can take away from me. This is real.”
QB Joe Flacco on his contract
“That’s the last thing I’m concerned about, but [Owner Steve Bisciotti] did let me know that if the day came, I could go beat on his desk and really put it to him. So that’s exactly what I’m going to do.”
“I want to kick my feet up right now but I can’t. I’m ready for rebirth. I’m ready to second line all the way up Poydras, man.”
“Beyonce must have been good. She took all the power with her when she left the stage.”
Suggs on winning for Lewis
“Ultimate cake. There will never be another leader like him and we sent him out like his brothers, and his legacy will go untainted.”
