    Can't be Witten because he's married. OP said he was with his girlfriend.

    "I asked if he'd rather play with Joe than with his QB and he just laughed."

    LOL

    Apparently I'm not the only one that thought Cowboys as soon as I read that line.

    It could also be any player from an AFC team the Ravens played in the last five years, and this guy has switched teams and is now playing in the NFC. Just because the guy said Joe has improved since the last time he saw him doesn't mean the guy is still playing on the same team. Players do move around.

    Thanks for sharing! This story is up there with AirFlacco's stories.

    I'm with everyone that thinks it has to be at least someone fairly recognisable. Cowboys and eagles are great guesses IMO.

    Re: Interesting take on the Ravens from an active NFL player

    A piss in the wind guess.... Brandon Marshall.

    He's played against Joe in 2009, and 2010.

    Now plays for the Bears who are of course an NFC team. He plays with a pretty good QB, but he isn't Joe Flacco and is a total bellend off the field.

    We didn't play the Bears this season.
    Not even in the pre-season.

    What ASB said was, "he is an offensive player on an NFC team we played this season."

    He didn't specify if "this season" includes the pre-season or post-season, but he did make it clear that the player was on a team that we played this year, so that eliminates BMarsh as a possibility.

    It was probably a Cowboy or an Eagle, given who their QBs are, and the lack of playoff success they and their teams have had.

    Good stuff.
    Not shocked to hear the respect for Joe. These guys see him up close, they see the decision making, the arm and other qualities that go into it. Unlike average fans they are basing an opinion on actual meaningful data and not just fantasy stats such as yardage TD's etc. Those things are important but can be misleading also, especially in a league were teams are pass first/happy.

    of course, my mistake for not reading the story properly lol.

    Aren't Witten and Romo supposed to be really close?

    If that's the case, I doubt it was Witten (although, I guess reports about them being tight could be exaggerated).

"Old habits die hard" and "you can't teach an old dog new tricks" they say. This is true of writers. They get an idea in their heads, and its hard for them to shake it. Hence, the "same old same old" reporting of the Ravens.

    None of which bothers me. Screw em all. Baltimore Ravens till I die!!!!
    In fairness to the media (many of whom don't deserve it) there is no way they can have the same appreciation for the Ravens that we do. There aren't enough hours in the day to be as familiar with 32 teams as we are with our one. I agree many our lazy, and with just a little digging they could put out a better product, or at least not just regurgitate the same errors over and over (e.g. the Ravens defense is old.)

    But many of them see the Ravens as much as we see, for example, the Texans. You watch a full game or three. You see the SportsCenter highlights. You see the fantasy stats. And that's about it.

    So if you watched Joe in the regular season Denver game, and read his statline every week, and noticed that most of the Ravens highlights involved the defense and Ray Rice, you would probably think of him as pretty mediocre. You might think of the Ravens as lucky this year, because we won several close games, and didn't really obliterate anybody besides the Raiders after the opening week. When the spotlight was really on in the playoff chase, we put up some clunkers.

    For us, we watched this team, and we knew what they were capable of. We could see the effect the injuries were having. We could see the offense could be great if it could figure out how to be consistent. And on and on. But you can't figure those things out in the snapshot high level view that the national media gets.
