    Re: I dare you to say the Ravens will not make the playoffs.



    I honestly don't see much change at all in the AFC. I have a hard time seeing any non-playoff team from 2012 breaking through...maybe the Chiefs or Dolphins sneak into the wildcard conversation.

    I know there is always an "out of nowhere" team, but does anybody really think the Bills, Jets, Browns, Jags, Titans, Chargers or Raiders have a realistic shot?

    You do realize Caldwell ran the exact same offensive system as Cam, right?

    You people who think Caldwell came in after the Deadskin game and completely reinvented the wheel with a new offensive philosophy crack me up.

    It was the same philosophy, but Caldwell made better uses and called the better plays and stuck to certain game plans unlike Cam. One of Cams problem was, he'd panic when something wasn't working out, so he'd go to one extreme to the other. Run game isn't working? Pass the ball 50 times a game. Joe Flacco starts turning the ball over? Pound the ball for 3 yards all game long and send everyone deep on 3rd and shorts. Some of the most idiotic play calling I've ever seen.

    Nobody can replace Ray's leadership...not even Ed Reed, if he was still here. However, there are some guys like Suggs and Yanda who I look to now. keep in mind that most of our 2013 roster will contain players with playoff/Super Bowl experience. We'll be alright... Bc

    You realize that Caldwell was using new plays never before used by Cameron? Look at Torrey's first TD in the Denver playoff game. It was a Colts play used a lot by Manning. Double crossers underneath and Torrey on a vertical route.

    Yeah, really looking forward to a full season with Caldwell as OC. I think he and Joe are really going to develop a special bond. It was amazing to see the difference in Joe's game after JC took over.

    2007 was bad because of a mass amount of injuries, not because we were favored lol.
    It's just like bulletin board material. A professional football player shouldn't need that, but any type of motivation can't hurt.


    ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?!

    '

    They already have. It showed up in the SB and his MVP award. Joe is using the same drills
    that Caldwell taught Peyton Manning and Manning still uses those drills.

    Overall we caught a pretty easy schedule for 2013. Most of the tough non-conference games are at home, and mostly easy ones on the road.

    They'll win 11-13 games, and the division by a mile.

    The AFC North hasn't looked as weak on paper for years. Its funny how things can quickly change in this league. Two years ago the AFCN was the toughest division in football, and the NFC West was the weakest. The NFC West is now arguably the best division, and the AFCN is in the middle of the pack.

    This will be the first season in Ravens history with a Super Bowl winning QB on the roster!
