    Nothing wrong with that. In the end of the day, I enjoy being a fan and it's entertainment for me.

    Mostly I'm just busting your balls Paint... I'm a huge fan. Probably too big of a fan, because I let these games affect me the way that they do. When you wake up with nightmares after a Ravens loss... it's gone too far. But games like yesterday are not very entertaining. At least it's not entertainment that makes me feel good.

    Yeah, don't get me wrong. I still get emotionally invested in the games. It was a horrible game to watch as a Ravens fan. If they play that way in these next few games, they are in trouble.

    Any reason to believe they won't? Last week they needed a conversion on 4th & 29 to even be in position to take a team much less competent than any left on the schedule into overtime. (NB without that minor miracle--or the Cowboys missed FG try with :06 remaining--Furry's prediction would still be very much alive.)

    Sometimes this board seems like a muddle of Micawbers, always hoping "something will turn up." I don't object to optimism, but I need at least a tincture of rationale in mine.

    They let Flacco run the no huddle against the Redskins' terrible D.

    The Giants lost 4 in a row last year and still won the whole thing.

    What's your guess as to the chances they do? On the road??

    And even if they start that way, what are the chances that they continue, even (especially) if they get up by a couple of scores, vs going into a shell & letting RG3 bring the Skins storming back?

    I have serious doubts whether this coaching staff will understand that they no longer have the luxury of playing low-risk football in time to avert a general collapse.

    Again that's not what I think is going to happen just what could go right. If Cam runs this gameplan from yesterday, we should chalk it up as a loss now.

    12 -4 at best. Losing to... pick any of the remaining teams.

    I really feel like we'll split the final 4 and go 11-5 have one home playoff game (maybe)
