    Maybe with the influx of posters a "24x7 Jr." sub-forum should be in order? It could be a two birds with one stone kind of thing, the trolls could use it as a playground as well.

    Re: shut up guys..

    I will put it to you like this: Every time I take that sort of dominant attitude about the Ravens, they either lose or play a game that is much closer than most expect. Now, after learning my lessons, I humbly enjoy the game. Every now and then, I will see a team that I think the Ravens should manage rather well. Nevertheless, I do not take that for granted anymore.

    this is the internet... spelling is overrated... and if I find out any of you are/used to be english teachers.... I will probably torture you for as long as they allow me to be on this board... why can't everything be numbers?!

    This board prides itself as being the premier board for the more discriminating Ravens fan.

    Speaking in text speak, poor grammar, bad spelling does not fit that mold.

    If that makes us quasi-English teachers, so be it and with pride.

    We're not going to compromise standards. That's the stuff of the Sun Boards.

    I happen to relish the idea of being an old fart. To the OP: Young dude you have some serious enthusiasm but you might revisit the packaging of your thoughts....just sayin....

    BTW...if you want to make point, starting with "shut up" is probably not your best choice.

    rn123,

    Please don't be late for your english class tomorrow. And while you're there please pay attention. And oh yeah, the caps lock button on your keyboard should be used sparingly.

    Other than that, I can buy into the notion that this may be the best all arouind ravens team in the history of the franchise, but I think the jury is still out on that.

    you called my bluff. I happen to like standards, spelling and grammar. I just don't make an issue out of it if you're posting an opinion on a message board.

    I like this board. I learn much more here about the Ravens than any place else on the web.

    You mean by "write like old farts" using decent grammar and punctuation so it is readable and not using all CAPS for most of the post as if to be screaming?

    If so, count me as an old fart that wants to come off as if his brain cells aren't all dead from hitting the bong and my neurons fire off in some semblance of order.

    Re: shut up guys..

    If I were to take a stab at pretending that the OP's message is legit, I'd have to ask--

    "THE BOTTOM LINE IS. WE ARE AN ELITE TEAM. THIS IS THE BEST RAVENS TEAM TO EVER TAKE THE FIELD. IM SICK OF PEOPLE SAYING RAY RICE IS OUR ONLY OFFENSIVE WEAPON. LOOK AT T SMITH, BOLDIN. DICKSON, AND PITTA MAKING NAMES FOR THEMSELVES. WE ARE GOING TO WIN THE SUPER BOWL THIS YEAR AND CONTEND FOR IT, FOR MANY YEARS TO COME."

    -What do you see as an "elite' team? I'm unimpressed with superlatives for which there are no real quantitative measurments other than A LOUD OPINION!!!!! I've watched most of the Ravens games this season, and, as big a fan as I am, I'm not sure I see them as what I would call "elite" or "the best" Ravens team, at least not at this point.

    -Ray Rice is "THE ONLY" offensive weapon on the Ravens? Who on this board has been saying this? Or are you referring to the guys yakking at lockers during class changes?

    -T Smith, Boldin.[sic on the period in the middle of the sentence], Dickson, and Pita have all certainly contributed well to the team's success so far, but I assume their parents made their names for them.

    -I we win the Super Bowl this year and THEN contend for it, isn't that putting the cart before the horse? I commend your enthusiasm, and actually tend to think the Ravens just may end up doing that, but they also have a bunch of warts that may also screw up that scenario. AQs far as contending for years to come, this may be more insightful than you realize. IIRC, many (most?) teams that make the playoffs one year are not a shoo-in for the ensuing season. The Ravens, at least under Harbaugh, have been invited to the prelims, if not the Big Dance. IMHO, the team needs to take a big step, win the AFC Championship and actually GET TO the Super Bowl if you want to continually refer to them as "elite".

    Of course, this all assumes the OP's posts are legit....

    Haha, believe it or not I'm only 16 too guys. I try to use correct spelling and grammar and not get over-enthusiastic or too 'doom and gloomish' with my opinions so people can actually take me seriously.
