    And the broncos were "unbeatable" last year until the ravens ruined their party.

    Re: And here we go again... when will the media learn.

    Hmmm....there are quite a few teams in that top 10 that haven't proven a damn thing yet in the playoffs.

    We'll see, I guess....

    I've never seen that dickhead write a positive thing about the Ravens. He's some media hack.

    He's going overboard, but I agree with him about Pollard.

    Jacoby? I think he deserves to go somewhere in the top 100...he was the most productive return man in football last year. The most dangerous/productive return man deserves a spot in the top 100, even if they never caught a pass.
    Although Walsh's system of offense can compensate for lack of talent; however, defense is a different story. According to Walsh, talent on defense was essential and could not be compensated for. What did Walsh do in 1981? He acquired physical and talented players on defense.

    The media always gets it right, especially about the Ravens last year. Can't imagine them being wrong this year. LOL The media and predicting is a waste of time reading about. The game has to be played on the field and not in the papers, magazines or internet. Must suck for sports writers to make up polls and other unbelievable shit for a living, then look back at the end of the season to see how wrong they were. Is there a sports writer that is right more then 90% of the time?

    Face it guys, the national media doesn't like the Ravens. I'm pretty sure it has to do with Modell and moving here, they see us as a stolen team from a great football city in Cleveland(lol!!, yeah I know).

    I could care less what a bunch of talking heads think about my team.

    I don't really see the problem here- the guy's giving his personal opinion and it's not even as if he doesn't back up his reasoning. Loss of leadership is a valid concern when the two players lost have been constants for a decade and having to play Denver and Houston as opposed to San Diego/Oakland and Tennessee/Indy is a big disadvantage compared to our divisional rivals in a 16 game season.

    We may not agree (and admittedly I don't understand why the Pats are 5th when he basically slags off their entire offseason), but these are preseason rankings based on offseason moves and if the games were played on paper. As we all know, they are not and so many different factors affect the outcome of any game, which is why we beat teams that 'were better than us' on our way to a Championship last year.

    It's just something to read in the offseason to ensure interest doesn't waver too much and nfl.com keeps getting hits.

    And here we go again....fans over reacting to pointless, meaningless lists/rankings/opinion pieces.

    Do we really need to have another season of a new thread every single time someone, somewhere doesn't like the Ravens?

    The lower the 'media' rate the Ravens the better I like it. Just that much more fun when they are proven wrong by the actual results!

    Another gem...he has Pitt down two spots. Reasoning? "They are relying on a bunch of KIDS to produce this year"...

    So apparently, it'd be better if they held onto declining overpriced talent and used them this year, over some very high potential draft picks.

    Yawn, moving on.

    More fuel to the fire: http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap100...op-100-players

    Can't say I disagree though. JJ I think might've deserved a spot, but Pollard is a bit of a reach. JJ was at least voted a Pro Bowler, clearly the best return man in the league last year.

    Re: And here we go again... when will the media learn.

    I like it. If anything, it helps to keep that chip on our shoulders.
    That's fine with me.
    Keep saying we aren't good enough.
    It shows those bozos never, EVER, learn.
    They were all wrong last year and they are still pissed because they all looked stupid.

    The truth is, the team the Ravens put on the field will get better every week, every game.
    The defense will be so much better by week 8, then at week 1, as this new group of guys get used to playing together.
    And that's bad for the rest of the league...because if the Ravens defense indeed returns, the Ravens may make another 5 year run in the playoffs.
    Enjoy this time Raven fans.

    Moi aussi, mon ami.

    Per Bisciotti, I dunno how many more Lombardis it's gonna take to get all those chips off our collective shoulders--but once we pile 'em all together & toss in a match, this city's gonna have one helluva weenie roast to celebrate...
