I really dislike that Elliot Harrison on NFLN. He REALLY seems to dislike the Ravens. Seems to think Dolphins/Steelers is a better game than any games the Ravens have this year.
A few things I'm hearing:
Ravens will play at Denver on the Opening Night (September 5th, game we should have been able to host)
Ravens will play their home opener (celebration) vs. NE on the 15th. (Not sure if it will be on SNF, but probably not)
Ravens will host the Steelers on Thanksgiving night
I heard the New England game was going to be a late season Saturday game.
Ok no I didn't, just felt good to say since everybody else is "hearing" stuff.
Someone tell the Orioles now not to schedule at home for the opening Thursday night game in 2014.
Here is how I see it:
It is going to be Denver for the opener.
And it is likely going to play out like our game at Houston last year. Houston was so full of piss and vinegar from us ousting them in the playoffs they came out like gangbusters. Now of course Cameron's stupid playcalling worsened the issue...but that is another argument.
To open at Denver will have so many momentum forces applied against up.
1) Denver home opener
2) Bitterness over playoff defeat
3) Addition of Wes Welker
I;m not saying we deserve more of a softball game (e.g. @ BUFF) to open the season, but we are really getting screwed here. Of course the NFL doesn't care about anything but ratings.
This just further pisses me off in regards to the whole scheduling conflict/Rosh Hash BS. We could easily open the year on Wed AT HOME like the SB champs should. Bastards.
