    Re: 7 point favorites on the road



    I agree with Mister T, it's still football and anything can happen. Just ask the Bears. Better yet remember back to our Super Bowl year when we played the Cardinal's late in the year. We should of killed them, but instead we were lucky to limp back home with a win. The Titans will be pumped their fans will be pumped, they have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Ah the good old days a Titan Ravens hate fest.

    I don't think anyone is debating the merits of "any given Sunday". Sure, they can beat us if they come to play and we don't.

    Oakland 20, Baltimore 12 . That game still sticks in my craw.

    Tenn 25, Baltimore 10 That game is why I am questioning the 7 point spread on the road.

    In a 2003 BBC poll that asked Brits to name the "Greatest American Ever", Mr. T came in fourth, behind ML King (3rd), Abe Lincoln (2nd) and Homer Simpson (1st).

    Anthony Wright and no first downs in the first half...this isn't even close to the same team.

    It is just a point spread, not a prediction! It is a number picked by Vegas to ensure that equal bets come in on both sides. If you don't think that the Ravens will win by more than 7, they throw some money on them!

    Cannot do that, Kevin. I would never, ever bet against our team. Bad karma.

    We will cover this and more. I see us winning in double figures. I know I will be there cheering like hell for the Ravens. 50 yard line behind Ravens bench.

    Although I really think the Ravens will win handily, NO team in the NFL should be taken lightly. Given the Ravens mantra though I can see a 7-10 point spread bieng considered too much.

    Also remember the Vaunted INDY offense only put up 14 against tis Tennessee team in a 14-13 win.

    I agree that 7 is a bit generous for a road game, I do, however see McNair going off in Tennessee. I see us winning by at least 7...

    Come on T when are you gonna stop being so down on the home team? A little blind homerism isn't always a bad thing.

    Of course we're 7 point favorites.

    If anything I'd think we'd be more.

    T, you won't let up will you?
    Homerism? Let up? How about: take off the purple glasses. What's wrong with realism?

    We beat a decent team today. No shame in the one point win on the road. Don't be surprised to see the Titans back in contention next season, if they can upgrade their defense with some of their abundant salary cap $$$$. Fortunately, we won't play them again until 2008.

    My prediction earlier assumed that the Ravens came to play.

    Well, they didn't until halftime. Props to you for seeing this game in your crystal ball. Statistically, we should have run all over them. The stats reversed themselves today. We got 50 yards rushing. Are you kidding me?? McNair probably got 1/3 of those by himself.

    This was not a good team, T. It was a dreadfully undermanned team that simply had heart and wanted it more than we did, at least until our guys woke up and realized that they were in deep shit.

    And frankly, I wouldn't mind not having to face that team in TEN again for a while.

    This game went about how I expected. This Titian team almost beat the Colts
