    I just don't know what people expect from an injury riddled team with a serious talent deficiency on both lines. They are playing well enough to win and that's all that counts. Once we make the playoffs it becomes 40% luck, 30% team health, and 30% talent. Just enjoy a fucking win without desperately looking for a way to piss on it.
    Seriously.

    The win in Cleveland was not overly impressive but it was an improvement. Keeping the browns out of the endzone was a good start and young guys are getting good game expereince. Once crunch time hits in Dec/Jan and Feb, it's all about the TOP talent you have, and who gets hot.

    I like that we're getting young guys expereince AND winning at the same time.

    Our top talent on both sides of the ball can get hot. Don't sleep on Rice, Boldin, Torrey Flacco, Suggs, Reed or Ngata. They can all single handedly propel a team to a win.

    I truly think we will get to 10 wins and once in the playoffs, will let it hang out.

    @ SD
    Steelers
    @ Redskins
    Broncos
    Giants
    @ Bengals

    None of those teams you can say are playing lights out football right now. Dont let our own flaws blind you from seeing other teams.
    Aint that the truth.

    Raiders just gave up 250 rushing yards to one dude. Really. One dude.
    Steelers look like the best of the rest, but they just beat a totally unispired Giants team. And still lost to the Raiders AND Titans. And they don't have a RB.
    Giants will be tough. But we're built similarly to the steelers who habnded them. And I'd say we matchup as favorabley as they do, possibly better. And we get then at home.
    Skins are struggling as they couldn't beat Carolina. Really? Oh, and they just let Christian Ponder throw for 352 and 2 TDs.
    Bengals will be tough in their place, but not impossible. Let me remind you they just lost their 4th in a row. One of which was to Cleveland.
    San Diego will be tough with the trip west, but they aren't world beaters either. Old Man Peyton had that comeback AT SD...Oh, and they just lost to that lousy Cleveland team we swept too.

    We are going to be 7-2 before we hit our tough stretch. That's likely going to be 2nd in the AFC as they are now, and still leading the division. So at the least, we should be playing for the division lead when we go to Pittsburgh.
    On the series where they kicked it into gear the play calling was better. It was more creative. They opened up with good pickup on a pass to the middle of the field to Boldin. That set the tone for the drive. From there they were able to mix in passes and runs with success. During the previous 6 drives that stalled they would run the ball on first down for little gain or they tried the deep pass to Smith. Their first down plays are what is killing the team.

    I just do not get why we can't have those kind of throws to Boldin more consistently, why the fuck does it take until the 4th quarter to get that play when we needed it, and why did we literally fall off a cliff after that first quarter where our offense looked the best it's been all year?

    Cleveland adjusted by putting an extra dlineman in the game, effectively running a 4-4-3. Cam never countered that move. That is, until the 4th quarter. This man's stubborness never ceases to amaze me.

    Cam is pretty bad, always the one to get the joke last. Onto the question how to get to 10 wins. First, you beat Oakland then move on from thier that's 7.

    Win four more?

    We split with the Steelers and the Division is ours. The losses to Tennessee and Oakland are going to come back to bite them later on.

    I agree with this. Right now I think both teams will finish 11-5 with the Ravens holding the tie breakers.

    To get to 10 wins, all we have to do is sweep our home games. Short of that, we can probably beat the Bengals or Redskins if we let a home game slip through our fingers.

    Man, stop having all that "unsupported optimism". How dare you think that the Ravens are not the only imperfect team in the NFL or that they can beat one of the flawless teams left on their schedule....

    Wink Re: How does this team get to 10 wins?

    Look guys, our Oline stinks, Rice is too short, TEs can't block, WRs are hot and cold, and a QB who is inconsistent. Our Special Teams aren't anything special, and the defense is old, slow, and going downhill fast. The coaching staff doesn't have a clue. That's why the Ravens are 2 - 6. What's that (?) Oh nevermind... Bc

    I think this sums it up fairly well. We are such a flawed franchise with so many areas of concern and yet on pace to win 10+ games for the 5th straight year. I will say this team is darn lucky to be 6-2 though. They really are more like a 4-4 team. However, to have played as bad as they have and still be 6-2 can mean that either:

    a) the regression to the mean will catch up with us soon (the pessimist's view) or

    b) When we start to play our best football, we are in great position to take a top 2 seed in the AFC given our win against NE and upcoming games against the AFC contenders Denver and Pittsburgh (the optimist's view).

    After win totals of 13, 10, 13, and 13 over the last four years, I think you have to play the odds that we should be more encouraged than worried. This team has a great track record of finishing regular seasons well.

    The difference between 4-4 and 6-2 is one Joe Flacco.

    Re: How does this team get to 10 wins?

    I will say this...the Ravens season is somewhat eerily similar to how the Orioles season went for most of the year...they are consistently winning despite almost all the "important stats that are supposed to show how good you are" not being in their favor.

    In the end, it doesn't really matter as long as they find ways to win though.
    Although Walsh's system of offense can compensate for lack of talent; however, defense is a different story. According to Walsh, talent on defense was essential and could not be compensated for. What did Walsh do in 1981? He acquired physical and talented players on defense.
