    That being said, I can't see the Bengals winning this game. Towards the last half of the year, teams picked up on Andy Dalton. I see a sophomore slump for him. However, I bet they'll be able to run on us, seeing as how LB is a surefire weakness of this team. It'll be fun to watch.
    I'm sorry but you can't blame a loss or any future ones for that matter on a move from Westminster to Owings Mills. Does this mean you'll start giving the move to Owings Mills some legitimacy after every win this year? What about previous years when training camp was in Westminster? Were you attributing losses to lack of preparation there? For 4 straight years the ravens have proven that they know what it takes to put a winning product on the field and so given their track record we have to trust them.

    One thing I know for sure is that this is going to be another intense hard fought game. I give the Ravens the edge in every category including the emotional one.

    I'm most interested in seeing how guys like Upshaw, Kruger and Mclellan perform. Those three will be the most counted on to replace Suggs' production.

    Lol.. I don't see the difference between it, and I really can't fathom out a credible argument to the performance changing from changing where you hold training camp. A field with two marked end zones with the field markings is the same wherever you go.

    We shouldn't be shocked if Cincy wins this game. As Rodney Harrison said about the Cowboys-Giants game, "season openers are fools gold". So my feeling is, even if they lose, it won't mean that much. A loss might end up being a beneficial slap in the face.

    Nothing shocks me in the NFL, hell football Period. I just saw #8 Arkansas lose to Louisiana Monroe last night... Sooo that being said, anything is possible.

    Disappointed yes, shocked no. The Bengals have a good young team. I think the emotional edge the Ravens will have going in this week will help them win this game.

    I agree with Crow1994. Disappointed yes, shocked no.

    This right here is my biggest concern not only for monday but the entire season.

    So far in pre-season we haven't shown the ability to do much of either with any kind of consistency which is highly concerning to me.

    IMO the offense will have to carry this team this year which we haven't seen have to do in quite some time.
    I think we will have to put up more points per game then we're use to seeing and quite frankly, nobody really knows if they can actually do it because we haven't had to see them do it to this capacity.

    So to answer the original question, no, wouldn't shock me at all against an inner division opponent that historically as of recent years has played us very tough, knows us well, and by all accounts so far has an improved squad.

    Hi, guys. It's that time already. I would be surprised if the Bengals can pull out a win. Tall order to start out season at the Vault. I think it will be a great game regardless.

    I'm with you. It's going to come down to a couple of big plays like it always does. Should be a hell of fun game to watch

    We always play each other tough. Dalton came of age in last years game though. He showed Cincy fans that he was for real. I'm sure he hasn't forgotten how he felt after coming so close last year there.
