    Re: Predict Ravens record



    Now what if Mark Cuban bought the Ravens? What you think he would do? Yeah,, He knows how Jerry Jones was so successful with his Cowboys. But he made one mistake. He fired Jimmy Johnson. Now Mark Cuban as Ravens owner would fired Ozzie. Jimmy Johnson would be the New Ravens GM. This man is a winner. Jimmy Johnson took a lame college program University of Miami and gave them 4 National championships. Took over the Dallas Cowboys and gave them 3 superbowl championships. Can you imagine what Jimmy Johnson would do as Ravens GM? He would get Ocho Cinco and T-O here give Flacco weapons to use. And he would get Dallas Clark here too. Then we would go to Superbowls again and give Ray his last ring to celebrate his happy career retirement.

    I could post this:

    Ignoring everything in that post except Miami, they won a single title in 1987 with Jimmy Johnson, not four. And to say they were lame when they had just won a title in 1983 under Schnellenberger the year before Johnson came there is...

    Instead, I'll post this...again:

    Jimmy Johnson? Jay-sus boy! Some ideas are worth discussing.

    Some. Not all.

    NNS--
    If I'm not mistaken, OriginalColtsFan = old19fan. I fear we have Steve Mario on our hands.

    HoustonRaven--
    I'd like to counteroffer on the thread status. I can't control or edit if some knucklehead starts to post about "Stupid Willie Don Shaffer [sic]", but I'd be much obliged if we can keep this thread alive until I have a chance to download the comments and predictions, which may not be until this Sunday. OTOH, if you need to do a little weeding (no Ricky Williams pun intended ), I have no problems with that.

    Thanks for any help you can provide.

    Re: Predict Ravens record

    I say we go 12-4. I always say that we split with the stillers, and I say that we drop a game between SD and IND just because they are back to to back. And then ill say that we will lose 2 games to teams that we should win. I do not wanna go as far to say that well make it to the superbowl,itll take me a little while longer to guage where we are at.

    But i will say that we are in a pretty good spot and are definetly going to be a contender. Im so excited for tonight!!

    ITS GAMEDAY AGAIN!!! FINALLY!!! I HAVE SOMETHING TO LIVE FOR AGAIN!!!
    GO RAVENS!!

    Re: Predict Ravens record

    Just finished copying, summarizing, etc., the predictions. A couple notes--

    > If you didn't make a specific guess (e.g., you left open the number of wins, or said 'if "this" we're x-y, but if "that" we're a-b', etc.), I listed you as the lesser record (i.e., more conservative record).

    > Only two predictions were for less than a .500 record.

    > 10-6 is the most predicted record, followed by 11-5, then 12-4. Nobody went for a perfect 16-0 (thus saving the egos of the '72 Dolphins ), with one prediction of 15-1.

    > One of our true oracles has predicted 11-4-1! I say that if there is a Ravens tie in the record in 2011, this one wins regardless of W-L's!

    > There were 75 predictions by my count, but one prediction was "One win better then the Yinzers". Not sure how to count this one.

    > I'll post another thread requesting predictions after the conclusion of the last preseason game and before the opener with Pitt.

    > If anyone believes I have misrepresented, miscounted or otherwise "mis"'d any predictions, please let me know.

    Here are the summarized counts--

    Predicted record/# of Predictions

    0-16/1
    7-9/1
    8-8/4
    9-7/6
    10-6/25
    11-5/16
    11-4-1/1
    12-4/10
    13-3/5
    14-2/4
    15-1/1

    Total - 74

    I'd say that's a pretty optimistic perspective pre-preseason with all the discussion of needs for a backup QB, an O-line in question, uncertainty about the secondary, and a few other issues.

    What jagoff predicted 0-16? They should be banned on principle!

    Re: Predict Ravens record

    Thanks for doing this Beau. It will be interesting to see if/how the predictions change after pre-season.

    Re: Predict Ravens record

    As an NFL Fan:

    NFC West Conference = 4-0
    AFC North Conference = 4-2
    AFC South = 3-1
    NYJ + SD = 1-1

    Total = 12-4

    As a Ravens Fan:

    NFC West Conference = 4-0
    AFC North Conference = 4-2
    AFC South = 4-0
    NYJ + SD = 2-0

    Total = 14-2

    I tried to stay as neutral as possible in this one. Do I think we will beat both NYJ and SD? Yes. We have a history of beating both of those teams on the road, and you guys know how well we play at home.

    For Indy, I think this could be the year. Peyton is coming off a surgery and a lot of their great football minds (Tom Moore, Howard Mudd) have gone elsewhere. The Ravens pass rush and secondary have gotten a lot better since the two teams met. I expect a good fight. As for the rest of the AFC South, I expect Houston to put up a good fight similar to last year, but still lose in the end. Jag's and Titans have no hope against us.

    NFC West is the NFC West. Should be no problem.

    As for our division, the bengals should be the easiest team to beat. The browns got a little bit better, but still have a young Colt Mccoy at QB. Now the steelers. To make it as realistic as possible, I gave the steeler's the benefit of the doubt. However, I made our record 4-2 in the division which means those two losses could be seperate teams (Hopefully). Either way a total record of 13-3 is my guess after averaging the two. A very good record that could land us a home playoff spot.
