Thread: Lose out

    Re: Lose out



    They WONT lose out. I can see them beating Denver. The offense is playing well and we will have Suggs/Lewis/Elerbie back for that game and possibly Jimmy Smith. I can see us beating Denver or NYG but not both. my gut tells me we beat Denver and have a let down to NYG and beat CIN to get the 3 seed. Win out first playoff game then lose in NE/Denver/Houston.

    New England wont lose @ home to Houston, plus they will beat SF. Ravens are 3rd or 4th, likely 4th at this point. I just dont see enough intelligence in this team to beat Fox's defense and Manning.

    Fuck that. They still have a decent shot at the division, which means a home playoff game against a 9 or 10 win team. Which means they are then a hot streak away from the Super Bowl. Is that likely? Hell no, but I have seen stranger things the last few years (like the Cardinals making the Super Bowl).

    There are no redeeming aspects of losing out.

    This the season of Christmas wishes - but you you shouldn't count on it too hard because it ain't gonna happen!

    On the other side, if the Ravens make the playoffs, and are one and done (as the gloom and doom here predicts), you're picking in the low 20s.

    So you'd trade watching your team collapse down the stretch in order to pick up 2-3 spots in draft position. That doesn't make any sense.
    Shhhhh..You're making too much sense...something I never thought I would say to a Steelers fan

    Ok...I will wish for them to get hot at the right time...and you can root for them to lose out.

    Fair enough?

    Fair enough!

    But getting rid of Cam is more impotant to the Raven's (and Joe's) long term success than winning the Super Bowl is!

    Ravens "fans" who want the team to lose out are not fans. They are weak simpletons who have gotten spoiled over the last 4 years. Anything can happen in the playoffs.

    WTF!!! I will take a Super Bowl win in exchange for 5 straight losing seasons.

    You people that think getting rid of a coach and a player or two is going to magically result in 3 straight Super Bowl wins are fucking dreaming. How many Super Bowls have arguably one of the greatest head coaches and greatest quarterbacks won over the last 8 seasons?

    Re: Lose out

    Sorry, guys, but tanking the rest of the season isn't very likely to help your cause.

    The Ravens will be in the playoffs even if they finish 9-7 unless both Pittsburgh & Cincinnati finish at 9-6-1--win their remaining games except tie with one another. Considering that in the last 10 years' worth of regular season play--over 2,560 games--there have been exactly 2 ties (PHA@CIN, 11/16/2008, and STL@SF, 11/11/2012), that ain't bloody likely. They'll still be drafting at #21 or worse.

    I'm glad you have a crystal ball to tell everyone what is and isn't possible 4 weeks from now.

    Recent past tells us that teams can get hot in December and get to the Super Bowl.

    Gee, say we get Ellerbe, Ray, Suggs and Jimmy Smith back by then...think just maybe the defense might have a chance to play better?

    Ah, hell. Sitting home and watching f*cking PITTSBURGH in the playoffs is better, right?
