Every franchise goes through down periods it is that some franchises recover more quickly then others. The Ravens have had a few down years but nothing compared to the teams that are mentioned above. The 40-70 yr old something fans know what dark days really are. The Colt's were pathetic from 78' until they left in 83' and had a drunk owner who could care less about fans. We then went through a 13 year hiatus from not having NFL football. Some of you posters have no freaking clue what it is really like to have a lousy team or no team at all. Hopefully you will never have to experience a prolonged period of mediocrity. I will always root and support this team whether they are 2-14 or 14-2 because I as a fan felt the pain every Sept, Oct, Nov & Dec Sunday for 13 years in not having a team to root for!!
    Excellent post. I wasn't even going to reply to this thread because of the lunacy of the title.

    As a long suffering Bengals fan I have stuck with them from their first year through thick and thin. The Shula years, when we were a national punchline on ESPN and late night shows were as painful as it gets but I watched every game that was televised.

    The Ravens have been more prosperous than any team I have ever seen.

    This. I would add Pittsburgh and Chicago to your list. Very winnable.
    Most frustrating season in memory.

    Cincy, most of these posters on here are probably 20 somethings so they never had to experience what a lousy team really consists of, I lived through the years of Irsay dismantling a great franchise until it became so obvious to fans that Irsay was not going to field a quality team. Support for the team dwindled then he moved the team to Indy. To be honest if it was not for the late Gov. Schaffer in keeping stadium funding in place Baltimore would not have a team now. We have a local owner who has been a great owner in keeping this team competitive year after.

    Most fans would be happy going into last game of the season with a possible playoff berth at stake!!

    The saying goes, "When life hands you lemons, make lemonade"--but some of the folks here find it just a tad annoying when it sounds like others have already set the stand up out by the curb & stocked up on ice & cups & sugar & (somewhat impatiently) await only the arrival of the fruit.

    IMO there will be time enough in the offseason to argue over what needs to be done, or undone, or left alone re the franchise. Until & unless the Crows get sent home, dum spiro spero should be the watchword.

    Great thinking since the draft worked so well for us this year.
    So you basing your opinion about last years draft after 15 games?

No not with any regularity... But that would be ok with you? Well have to just agree to disagree on that one.
