The NFL Network debuted its special on the Ravens Super Bowl run Monday night. Here are some of my takeaways.

I applaud them for not taking the easy out and making it all about Ray’s last game. It was an element, but by starting with Joe Flacco, I think the NFL Network avoided the low hanging fruit. It was great seeing Flacco tell Cameron you can’t win a Super Bowl by throwing 19 games, and also telling Harbaugh “get off my back.”

I think it showed a lot about John Harbaugh before the Super Bowl that, as the big brother, he was the one that told his brother he was proud of him and loved him.

I was glad to see the context of Ray Lewis’s comments that were blown out of proportion over the weekend regarding whether or not the power outage was an accident. The national media mis-represented his comments, and certainly it seemed to me that they were mostly in jest.

It was cool to see that the Ravens took a play from the Packers and executed it for a score in the Super Bowl.

I would have liked to have seen a little more regarding the “mutiny”, but this is the problem when you only get perspective from 3 people — Harbaugh, Flacco and Lewis (who wasn’t even there for the “mutiny”).

Seeing the highlights of Flacco’s pass to Jacoby, and how he couldn’t really step into the throw because of a defender right in front of him, reminded me how impressive the play was.

Overall, I thought the piece was well-done and enjoyable.
