Terrell Suggs didn't need a microphone. The booming voice from the Ravens outside linebacker was easily heard during the Super Bowl media day Tuesday. Suggs embraced the wackiness often associated with media day, pulling his own antics during the hour-long session Tuesday morning at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. Just a few questions into the interview, Suggs jumped up from his seat and asked, "We're good? I'm done?" He left the podium and tried to ask teammate Ed Reed a question, but Suggs couldn't get through the crowd assembled for the Ravens safety.

On Feb. 3, 2013, crowds surged out of the city's restaurants and bars, filling the streets with purple attire and raw emotion after the Ravens' Super Bowl victory. A thousand miles away, in New Orleans, fans madly high-fived one another at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome as purple and gold confetti wafted down from the roof. In its postseason reverie, Baltimore seemed to be floating above winter. But a year later - with the Ravens out of Sunday's Super Bowl after missing the playoffs for the first time since the 2007 season - area fans are feeling the chill.

His memory is a bit hazy, but Sam Koch remembers watching his first Super Bowl in his family's home in Nebraska and being entranced by San Francisco 49ers quarterback Joe Montana. So while sitting down for either Super Bowl XXIII in January 1989 or XXIV the following year, Koch discovered what he wanted to do when he was older. "I always wanted to play football and my goal was to make it to the NFL," he said. "I didn't know whether it would be as a punter or what. At that point, I really didn't have an idea.

PHOENIX - It has been six weeks since Steve Bisciotti stood on a podium at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans and raised the Lombardi Trophy aloft, celebrating his team's 34-31 victory over the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII and his crowning achievement as the Ravens' owner. Since then, he has been touched by the numerous emails and phone calls that he has gotten from fellow owners and buoyed by the belief that the Ravens continue to do things the right way. He shared the victory with many, recently buying two motorcycles for the Baltimore City Police Department after doing the same for officers in New Orleans who took care of the team during Super Bowl week.

A power outage darkened the Superdome in the third quarter of the Super Bowl on Sunday night, an unnerving experience for a stadium that had been the refuge of last resort for many when Hurricane Katrina struck in 2005. The 34-minute outage seemed to halt the Ravens' momentum, coming almost immediately after Jacoby Jones returned a kickoff for a touchdown to start the second half. The Ravens had led 28-6, but the previously sluggish San Francisco 49ers went on to score two touchdowns and a field goal in the third quarter.

It would seemingly be the perfect way for a distinguished football career to end: Ed Reed returning to his home state of Louisiana and hoisting the Lombardi Trophy for the first time. Reed, however, has never been conventional on or off the field. “I'll be playing next year if that's what you are all asking, so next question,” Reed said. As his long-time teammate Ray Lewis prepares for his final game on Feb.3 in Super Bowl XLVII against the San Francisco 49ers at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Reed announced his intention Thursday to play beyond this season.

Ravens fans had waited 12 years for another Super Bowl victory, and they packed the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, dwarfing 49ers rooters in both numbers and volume. They about blew the roof off the stadium when Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco flicked his first touchdown pass as the team began its march to a commanding halftime lead. Then Baltimore - the team and its fans - held on for dear life. Down by 22 points early in the second half, the 49ers staged a furious comeback that fell just short as the Ravens held on to win, 34-31.

Although he tried his best not to be, Colin Kaepernick is back to being human, and playing that way - complete with the natural mixture of heroics and miscues you'd expect from a quarterback with just nine career starts. While Kaepernick entered Super Bowl XLVII with few blemishes on his postseason passer rating, the latest young NFL superstar exited the Mercedes-Benz Superdome after a mostly forgettable first half and an amazing second half, where he was a 5-yard touchdown pass away from joining Hall of Famers Joe Montana and Steve Young as 49ers quarterbacks to bring a world championship to the franchise.
