Boomer was my favorite QB in the 1980s... So I still have a tiny bit of a soft spot for them. Since we already have a win in the bank over Cincy, but have only split with the Brownies, I won't mind seeing a Bengals win on Sunday. If we win out, we beat out the Bengals no matter what. Can't say that about Cleveland just yet. Right?

    Really, though, if we don't beat the Bears, the Cincy/Cleve game means very little to me.
    Great post.

    Don't look now, but the Steelers are only a game behind the Ravens and Browns ...

    Definitely want the Browns to win this, for standings purposes.

    Should be an interesting game, Browns are much improved.

    They are, it's interesting. I think tonight's game continues to validate the Browns front office, specifically in terms of Trent Richardson. I always internally argued Oz's pledge to never trade another future first round pick. I now understand why he'll never do it again.

    To answer the thread, the Browns. I mean they're going to fold eventually right...?

    Both teams buses crash en route to the stadium.

    Kinda want the Bengals to win this one. If the Browns lose, they drop below us, and that'll be one less team we have to battle for a wildcard spot. Of course, this is assuming that we beat the Bears. As long as we stay within one game in the loss column with the Bengals, we still have a shot at the division title in Week 17 in Cincinnati.

    It's hard to believe that after all the crap that's gone wrong this year, we're still talking about the division title in Week 11.

    EDIT TO ADD: I think it's imperative that we win the division if we have any hopes of going far in the playoffs. Unless there's drastic improvement, I don't see the Ravens going into any of the other potential division winner's stadiums and walking away with a victory this year.

    Don't look now, but unlike Stealers fans, most of the posters here can count past 10 without using their toes.

    Pretty wild stuff, no? I stumbled onto it whilst googling for an appropriate big-rock-hits-city clip. Kinda the penultimate Candid Camera stunt.

    (I wonder how many video clips of interviewees they went through to cull out those few. Actually I wonder how many they had to exclude because the "victims" lost sphincter control on camera...)

    built around a solid defense and ball control... im not sure either. I think they look like an 8-8 team until they get a better run game. That puts them in the hunt because i dont see Cincy or Us being all that much better.

    Re: Browns or Bengals?

    The entire discussion is premised on the Ravens walking out with a win in Chicago.

    They have a game with the Bengals remaining, so I pull for the Browns to win. They have the Steelers twice, the Patriots, the Bears and the Jets left as tough competition. The Bengals have the Steelers, Chargers, Colts facing them; and even that is not that hard. I see more of a chance for the Browns to slide than Cincy. We want the final game to have some meaning.

    Of course, all of this requires the Ravens to stay competitive too.

    an ugly game resulting in numerous nagging, though relatively minor injuries, that ends in a tie, and causes both teams to lose out.

    Bengals because we still have a game left against them. We already split with the Browns.

    I think if the Ravens need collapses from both the Browns and Bengals in order to make the dance, then really, what's the point?

    It only matters if we are decent the rest of the way. And if we are, we shouldn't have to worry about the Browns at all. I want the last game of the year to be for the division crown, so I'll be rooting for the Browns.

    Generally I have an admiration for Marvin and the Bengals, but a real dislike of the Browns. I'll have to overcome that on Sunday.

    I would argue against that logic, actually. Wouldn't you rather go 9-7 and win the North due to Cincy and Cleve collapsing than finish 10-6 and miss the playoffs on tie-breakers? Whether we limp into the post-season or roll into them is not particularly important - see last season - just get in with a chance to defend our title.

    While the ultimate goal is to repeat, a secondary goal is to at least make the playoffs and avoid the ignominy of failing to make the post-season after a Super Bowl title. At least one extra week of being "Defending Super Bowl Champs!" beats the alternative.

    Re: Browns or Bengals?

    Interesting question. With all due respect to CincyCat, I probably root for the Browns simply because that scenario tightens up the entire division, setting the stage for all sorts of wackiness down the road. Besides, while the Browns are certainly improved, it's hard for me to envision Jason Campbell staying consistent enough to lead them to a playoff spot.
