    Well, I sometimes have an issue with writing too much. I write long winded paragraphs that no one wants to sift through... So I made a statement. With hopes of creating a discussion. My goal was not to troll. My goal was to throw out a statement (the statement is my true feelings, regardless of controversy). If it wasn't bold or slightly controversial, there wouldn't be anything to discuss. I wanted peeps to throw their thoughts out there based on Sundays events and after watching two future opponents last night....

    Yes, and the league will also review the game winning FG vs. the Pats, say it's too close to call, and delete another Ravens victory from the record book... Bc

    It's fun to prognosticate, but really, who the heck knows? Look at this weekend alone - 49ers and Texans dusted home, Falcons nearly lose to Raiders and Pats lose in Seattle. Anything can happen.

    Numbers don't lie. Either does the sudden turn of events. In other words get rid of Sabathia and Cano and Baltimore is playing Detroit.

    So Mannings numbers against us in the past don't lie either right?

    A) That's more debatable than you think it is, and many more variables go into that.
    B) Lewis and Webb don't have the impact those two players do. In football you're one out of 11, in baseball you're either 1 out of 9 or the guy pitching. In fact, you're really 1 out of 22 - and given the disproportionate importance of QB, probably even less than that in a mathematical sense. And Ray Lewis isn't very good anymore anyway.

    8-8 would probably still win the division anyway, LOL.

    Right! However when you consider what he was up against the numbers speak volumes. Beating our defense when healthy isn't easy. I wouldn't expect to see lopsided numbers. Yet he won. Let's get back to the issue. You really think the Ravens will beat Denver? I'll go first... No. Because I'm a troll or a pessimist? No! The sudden impact of what just happened to out defense leads me to that conclusion. Ask you: What would we have to loose as a defense before you would agree that the win is slightly in Denver's favor?

    Our defense as attorcious before losing Ray and Webb anyway, and Lewis was declining fast. So yeah losing Webb will hurt, but the fact that we are 5-1 with a terrible defense, and the fact that Denver are 3-3 still makes us the better team. We are 14-0 at home, and haven't lost to the Broncos for a looong time. The Broncos also have issues of their own, so I'm picking us to win that game. I still don't understand how your giving us zero chance in that game, I mean I can kind of understand Houston on the road, or even the Giants at home, but the Denver Broncos????

    So Ray and Webb in Baltimore is not viewed as 2 top Yankee performers? And Ray isn't very good anymore? The board is going to have a field day with this. Um.. Actually I was thinking of Ray and Webb in combination with Suggs and possibly Ngata. By the way who would you have picked from the Yankees since you don't think Webb and Ray don't measure up?

    Whoa, hold on just a minute. I give the Ravens zero chance? I'll be as horse as you the next day. The Ravens, in Baltimore, will come to play and I'm hoping for a win. However if I were a betting man I'd keep my money in my pocket. Couldn't there be anything sweeter than beating Manning on our turf? I can't think of anything. In our house the Ravens have every chance. Let's hope Denver's issues are pronounced and let's hope that Joe and Rice are on.

    Houston - W (We load he box, stop Foster, while Flacco gives un early comfortable lead).
    Browns - W (We dominate them in their stadium as we usually do. 'Nuff said.)
    Oakland - W (Shoot out with Tucker kicking last second FG in close-than-expected game).
    Pittsburgh - A high-scoring game the Ravens lose because Suggs, while dominant against the run, has't recovered his explosiveness as a pass rusher.)
    S.D. - W. This team got worse since the last time we played them, and they've not really done anything.
    Pittsburgh - Win, in blowout fashion.
    Redskins - W. Close win, although RGIII lights our defense up with his legs.
    Broncos - W. We jump out to an early lead, Manning leads another comeback, only to have it fall short on an (ironic) Willis McGahee fumble.
    Giants - W. Ray Rice takes over this game, going 22/175, 2 TDs, 5 rec/83 yards.
    Bengals - Loss. Starters rested, Bengals still fighting for WC spot.

    I don't get why people think we won't beat Denver. Have they not been watching that team this year? They really aren't very good. The ONLY reason they won last night is because Phillip Rivers turned the ball over SIX times!

    And for that matter, why does anyone think San Diego will beat us? If we are looking at teams and how they've been playing(including the Ravens), I don't get it.

    And everyone is ready to hand Houston the game this week too. Hello, they got blown out by the Packers at home. Have the Ravens been blown out this year even just once????? (for the record I am still picking Houston in this game, but it's no where near the mortal lock some would have you believe).
