    LOL @ Hensley



    C'mon man!

    He's predicting the Ravens finishing 3rd behind the Steelers and Bengals

    He prefaces this by saying he can't win with his prediction, so he's trying to be edgy with it. Ok, there's going out on a limb to be different, but when you say the Steelers came out of the preseason with the fewest question marks, I have to wonder what you've been smoking. They don't know who is going to run the ball, their offensive line is a mess, their best receiver just reported to camp unhappy, Harrison's health is a question mark, their defensive line is in transition, need I go on?

    And the Bengals? The team that couldn't beat good teams last year and seems to have regressed big time on offense, who haven't put back to back winning seasons together since 1982(!), and who've looked pretty flat this preseason?

    Seriously...wow JH....

    Are you surprised? Anyone with a haircut like his is automatically going to be a douche.

    Seems he's been relegated to the "get us some clicks or you're done" squad. He adds nothing to any discussion I've seem him involved with for some time; just says dumb stuff to get a rise out of people.

    Most of the people on this board are better reads than anybody -- save Aaaron Wilson -- who is paid to cover the Ravens, or opine about them.

    He became such a tool when he went big time.

    Not sure it's that far fetched. Would not surprise me if the difference between first and third is one game. The Steelers are still a good team with a great QB and the Bengals are good too & have always played us tough. Considering we've lost our best player for most if not all of the season (a player who is more important than anyone the Steelers or Bengals have lost to injury) and have a brutal schedule, don't really see how it's outlandish that the Ravens could finish behind them both. I don't think that will happen, but I can understand people feeling that way.

    You could be right.

    Agreed.

    If you read the article, its a perfectly plausible scenario.

    Unfortunately I also agree the possibility exists for a third place finish.

    We have a very tough schedule--we are the only AFC N team to play Houston and NE this year.

    Special teams are a disaster.

    We do not know who is going to generate a pass rush.

    Although I think the O-line is improving, it is one injury away from a major problem.

    We have a rookie kicker (albeit a very good one I think).

    And I wish I saw a little more out of Jimmy Smith and Cary Williams.

    With that said every NFL team has its issues because, with the tight salary cap situation, every team has holes, and every team has injuries. We could finish anywhere from first to third.

    Rather than sweat it, I am going to sit back and enjoy the ride, and see how good a coach John Harbaugh is. Something tells me he is going to earn his salary this year.

    And yes I think Hensley goes out of his way to try to convince the vast majority of people reading his blog (stealer and Browns fans) that he is not a Baltimore homer.

    Or (and most likely) the majority of fans can't hear anything remotely objective.

    Exactly. Hensley is a moron. I was reading his blog on the AFC North and he totally screwed up the new IR rules. Now of course he got called out and you may think what is the big deal? I'll tell you, if you are overpaid and bad at your job at a national media outlet and do not take the time to contact the NFL when you have the connection and resources to do so to better understand the rules, then you are indeed a moron.

    His opinions are worthless and he is merely the National Captain Obvious as Donut Man is our local Captain Obvious. How on earth did the Raven's end up with such trolls covering them I'll never know.

    It's just the same old schtick from him. That's all.

    I totally think that the Ravens could very well have a down year. I don't think it's likely given the obvious improvement with Flacco, Torrey, and Boldin, but if the Ravens were to finish say 8-8 or 9-7 and place 3rd in the division, it wouldn't surprise me.

    Hensley just says the same damn thing every week. IMO he is almost as bad as the guys like Jaime Dukes and Heath Evans who completely ignore things to put a negative spin on the Ravens simply because they're not a fan. Contrarians for the sake of being contrary with very little journalistic quality to anything they really say.

    Everyone is entitled to their opinion, and yes it is possible for the Ravens to finish third in the AFCN this year. Hell anything is possible in the NFL, it's possible that the Ravens, the Steelers, or the Bengals could end up finishing fourth in the division.

    That's not the problem most of the readers have with him. It's more to do with the fact that almost everytime he analyses the Ravens, 80 % of the content is highly negative of a team that is considered by most other NFL analyses a SB contender. It is so obvious that he has an agenda and just wants to prove that he is not a Baltimore homer, I can't think of anything else that is more obvious than that. It's things like his stupid little rankings, where he will try and be different, ranking players like Webb below players he should never be ranked below. His analysis makes no sense at times, and he constantly gets facts wrong, or speculates on things that barely ever end up coming to light.

    On this particular subject, I'd say the Ravens are the least likely team to end up finishing third in the divison. Yes we lost some pieces this year. Grubbs, Jarret Johnson lost in FA, and Suggs out for a large chunk of the year is going to hurt. But when I look at the other rosters in the division, it is still clear that from top to bottom we still have a superior roster, people like to forget about the likes of Haloti Ngata, Ray Lewis, Ed Reed, Lardarius Webb, Ray Rice, Joe Flacco, Anquan Boldin etc... We rarely ever finish anything worse than second in the division with a wild card berth, the last time it happened was five years ago. The Bengals are extremely overrated and are too inexperienced as a team to win a division like this, and the Steelers have more concerns than us IMO.

    Re: LOL @ Hensley

    This isn't new. He made the same predictions earlier in the offseason, he just added different reasons for them. I don't really care what Hensley has to say. I haven't read the AFC North blog since James Walker left. And judging by the regular updates I get here, I am not really missing anything.
