    Listen to that great, impartial prognosticator Merrill Hoge slobber over the elite Big Ben and his improved o-line, as he and Herman Edwards discuss the impending battle for AFC North supremacy between the Great stealers and the surging Bengals.

    The only point that may be valid (which remains to be seen) is the loss of leadership on the defense. That being said, the defense was pretty average (at best) for the majority of the season. If the guys we've added gel together and some of the vets take on a leadership role, this defense could be much better than last year's. On offense, losing Boldin and Pitta are big, but at least we have training camp to find replacements. Also, our offense should be much better just by the loss of Cam Cameron. Last year, many of these same prognosticators thought we were done because of losing our best defensive player (Suggs) before training camp.

    Ray Lewis is only going to be used for the MNF pre-game segments, or so I believe. He will get more "reps" in front of the camera as he shows his media prowess, is my guess.

    Oops, I'm wrong.

    He picked the queerlers to win the division, and the Ravens to miss the playoffs? That is shocking! Well not really. Moving on.

    Did you even watch the video or just guess as to what Hoges said? If it was a guess you were dead on balls accurate, I would be impressed if Merrill wasn't such a Steelers homer/Ben knob gobbler.

    When it comes to anything that Merrill Hodge has to say, I have come to realize the words of the immortal Forrest Gump seem always to fit well.....

    "Stupid is as Stupid does"

    Why would any Ravens fan cares what that moron has to say is beyond me.

    I mute the TV when Hodge, Heath Evans and Jaime Dukes start talking about the Ravens.

    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.

    Good or bad I hope someone brings this all up at the end of the year. I like the Ravens this year for the following reasons..

    Caldwell/Joe
    Oline basically in tact
    Dline

    Definitely concerned about Pitta and wr's but have faith in management.

    Hoge is to TV sports journalism as Ben Roethlisberger is to public restrooms.
