    It would be interesting to find out since everyone was picking the Eagles for the division. The Giants had also missed the playoffs the year before. They weren't a team that anyone was talking about until the beat the Jets the end of last season.

    Re: Ravens #5 in Preseason Power Rankings

    I think I'd drop us a tad because of the Suggsy injury and loss of Pagano.
    You don't usually lose the DPOY and a D-Coord and not skip a beat.

    I'd like to think the Flacco, the WRs, TEs and RBs will be solid and continue to improve from last year, but OL is a concern right now, for me.

    I think a 10-14 range is probably more appropriate.

    But what the hell do I know?

    BC's sister-in-law continues to get no respect because her stats have been so-so. That's why most pundits refuse to rank her as an "elite" sister-in-law. But maybe this will be the year she puts it all together and joins the ranks of the moderate-term employed. It'd really help her in contract negotiations. But if not, maybe she can blame it on Cam?

    Hmm. What's the estimated 2013 Franchise Tag number on sister-in-laws?

    I understand your concern, but don't forget about the quality of other players we have on our roster right now. I'd say between 10-14 would be way too low for us, considering how superior in talent our roster is to the majority of the NFL, even without Suggs.

    Re: Ravens #5 in Preseason Power Rankings

    I get worried anytime the national media ranks the Ravens in the top 10 much less top 5. They have been wrong about the Ravens everytime they rank the team. I would rather see them rank the Ravens about 12 - 15.


    ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?!

    Re: Ravens #5 in Preseason Power Rankings

    I could see Baltimore having a down year. They're already starting kind of in a rough situation with having some question marks at OLB/DE, LG, and the #3 WR spot.

    Still though, this team is going to go as Joe goes. That's the bottom line now. They can still have a top notch defense, but this team will only be as successful as the offense is...which is kind of scary in some regards.

    Maybe as far as Cam goes? Which is an even SCARIER thought ...

    Leach,
    I agree with you.
    And certainly hope you're right.
    I guess my uneasiness comes with the expectations.
    I feel better with them "counted out" and proving everyone wrong.

    And I'm just not sure how we ended up as 5th when each week you'll have the whole host of talking heads picking against us each week against: Pitt x2/Cincy x2/NYG/Philly/NE/Dal/SD etc. etc.

    Ravens have a lot of momentum coming out of last season, and momentum and self-confidence count for a lot.
