    He tries to position himself as "the guy who knows a lot about the Ravens and has the 'inside scoop' on why you shouldn't believe all those people in the media who are hyping the Ravens."

    Cuz, you know, the media has such a history of hyping the Ravens.

    I REALLY miss James Walker on the AFC North blog.

    It amazes me how clueless some fans/media are as to what is really going on on the division personnel wise. Anyone who knew realizes that the Steelers and Bungles are racked with injuries and question marks, and thst the Ravens have the least question marks.

    Peter King picked the Steelers to go 8-8, and anyone who isn't blinded by the fact that it is the Steelers would realize their roster is in shambles due to injury and other lack.of performance.

    The Bungles have an AVERAGE 2nd year QB who had played like complete garbage in the preseason, an oline racked with injuries and their prized first round pick unable to stay healthy and having setbacks with his injured knee.

    I could go on and on as the OP said, it is just comical. Hensley actually claims to cover all these teams, so he is either just stupid or trying to make a 'bold prediction" based on nothing.

    Anyone who wants to throw something down on Ravens 8-8 and 3rd place let me know, I need some easy money.

    Does there have to be a thread every time someone doesn't think Baltimore will run away with the division? It seems like every journalist people disagree with is some kind of moron. What ever happened to respectfully disagreeing with a opinion?

    Hensley trying to prove he isn't a Ravens homer isn't exactly being objective.

    Look, I think anything is possible, the Ravens could finish dead last, but if you read his "logic" to back up his prediction, it's as if he wasn't paying attention to the offseason and preseason.

    It isn't that Hensley is just a regular moron, he takes stupidity to another level unlike most media who can disguise their lack of knowledge rather nicely.

    But I agree instead if all these random threads about him we should just sticky one called "Dumb things Jamison Hensley said today". That would work.

    I made a pointed example of his moronic writing that had little to do with his prediction. It merely validated the point that his opinion is not to be respected if he cannot even do his job in a creditable manner.

    I just don't like his writing, no matter if it's positive or negative, it's just not very interesting and often seems inaccurate. in other news, Don Banks says:

    "11. Baltimore's defense will show its age at times this season, and the loss of disruptive outside linebacker Terrell Suggs can't be completely offset. But the Ravens, even with a tough first-place schedule, will be back in the playoffs for an NFL-best fifth consecutive season thanks to an offense that is ready to carry the load. Joe Flacco will put up career-best numbers in the no-huddle offense the Ravens will feature, and receiver Torrey Smith will be a force in the team's vertical passing game.

    Re: LOL @ Hensley

    The ESPN picks came out today - Hensley is the ONLY one who doesn't have the Ravens in the playoffs. The rest have them either winning the division or a Wildcard. (They are pretty much 50-50 on picking the Ravens and Steelers to win the division BTW).

    So Hensley is objective? I think what kind of sucks is that Hensley wasn't bad when he was at the Sun and didn't have to worry about the "homerism". He was actually pretty objective then, and very accurate on game predictions.

    This is his job to be objective and I don't see the big deal with an opinion based story.

    Re: LOL @ Hensley

    About 70 % of NFLN analyses pick the Ravens to WIN the division, everyone else predicts at least a wild card spot. Just proves what Hensley is really trying to do, especially when you have biased Steeler analysts picking us to win the division.

    That's just it - he's not being objective. He's instead trying to prove to everyone that he's not a Ravens homer. He's been doing this since he joined ESPN.

    Maybe you can point to something specific in the piece thats not objective?

    It's not so much in this case, I honestly think this particular article would be fair coming from someone else, but because it's Hensley who has proven in the recent past to have been writing pretty much nothing but negative things about the Ravens, it's just him yet again trying to say to the Steeler fan base that he isn't a homer for the Ravens.

    I have two questions for those who go ballistic at this kind of stuff.

    What were your predictions for the Ravens in 2007 and then in 2008?

    Did anyone pick the 2007 team to be remotely close to 5-11?

    Did anyone pick the 2008 team to remotely close to 11-5 and make it to within a play or two of the Super Bowl?

    I think we all know the answers to those questions.
