    since were still winning the division and 2nd in the AFC can we at least wait until we lose that next game before calling the season over?

    Do you really see this team beating Pittsburgh (2 games), Cinci in Cinci, SD in SD, Denver or NY?

    The Ravens defense can't generate a pass rush - Ben, Peyton, Eli, Rivers and Dalton are going to be throwing the ball all over the place while the Ravens perfect their infamous 3 and OUT offense.

    It doesn't take a genius to figure that out - and THAT equals 8 wins for 2012.

    you also said they would lose to cleveland and you're on record saying you hope they lose every game.

    The NFL is about the next game. That's all that matters, beat Oakland.

    I now know the formula!
    Give Cam 2 weeks to prepare, and then declare the game over after the first couple of series before their D has a chance to adjust and shut everything down.

    I think it's kind of ridiculous that people can be so negative about a sports team and yet they continue to watch and talk about them.

    If I'm reading a book and it sucks I simply put it down and read something else. Same goes for movies, tv shows, games, etc. I've never went on a bad roller coaster and then immediately jumped back in line for another ride.
    Why torture yourself if we are going to go 2-6 the rest of the way?

    Unfortunately a lot of these posters are posers that want us to think they are Ravens fans but really aren't.

    Besides without them the board would be almost boring.

    True. Even if the Ravens aren't playing well at worst they are still a .500 level NFL team. And that's at worst. There is no reason they shouldn't be 5-3 or 4-4 in their next 8.

    I really don't get it. The Ravens have been consistently good since Harbaugh got here, and you'd think they perennially have losing seasons according to some people here.

    Re: How does this team get to 10 wins?

    Personally I don't know what is more obnoxious:

    A) People that insist the Ravens are doomed.
    B) People that say 'look at the record, doom mongers' and completely gloss over any negative aspects of a performance and the potential implications of that.

    I thought the point of a forum was debate about a topic, not polarised whining and polyannaism.

    Literally no post in this thread even comes close to your "B" point. The nearest one is mine in which I simply pointed out several aspects of the game which I found heartening in response to your claim that virtually nothing about that game was worth a positive takeaway. No one has simply said "6-2 So shut up."

    But hey, if you want to adjust reality to suit a fictional theory of moral equivalency between two sides of a debate, go for it. This is a free forum and you're welcome to it.

Do that against a team with a decent offense, and you're on the wrong side of another blowout.

    Watching the team employ misdirection, rollouts, etc. successfully in the first quarter, and then totally abandon them, isn't "heartening". It just makes you want to reach for a barf bag.

    The only things that were really heartening were:

    1) Much better play against the run in the 2nd half
    2) Continued good play by the special teams units
    3) Ellerbe continuing to improve.

    But those things won't beat the good teams that are coming up.

    Just because you are a fan of a team does not mean you can't have a negative outlook on the remainder of the season. There is nothing wrong with saying that due to the injuries and poor coaching it may be difficult for the Ravens to go .500 and make the playoffs. It is not an unrealistic attitude. You still pull hard for the team to win. I look at the way our crappy OC and DC are coaching and wonder how we beat the Steelers. I will still pull hard for them every week. I hope they find a way to win some games they are not expected to win.

    I mean we are 6-2. We scored 25 points against a pretty tough Browns D on the road, but because our 25 didn't come evenly people are complaining. We led nearly the entire game and as soon as we lost the lead our offense took it back.
    We have averaged over 30 points a game at home and we still have 4 home games left so I'm not buying into the whole 2-6 2nd half record.

    And for those who think we don't have a chance why are you torturing yourself? Why submit yourself to 3 hours of "horrible" football every Sunday?

    Who was limiting the scope of my comment it to this thread? I certainly wasn't. If you want to do so to fit your narrow view of what shape the discussion about this team takes then go for it. This is a free forum and you're welcome to it.

    Edit: And look at this page of 'Look at the doommongers, what's wrong with them?!' posts. I mean according to some they aren't really Ravens fans, or they should just make the logical choice to stop supporting the Ravens. Those comments are about as stupid as any prophecies of doom being thrown around.

    The same Browns D that held the Chargers to 6 points. I don't know why people are surprised the Browns played us tough. They always do. I called it in the prediction thread. Also, I think there were some positives from the Browns game we can look at. The defense did not allow a touchdown when the Browns consistently had good field position throughout the game. Next, the defense for the most part managed Richardson. He averaged 4.2 ypc and his longest run was 19 yards. Granted he got over 100 yards, but he didn't run all over us. Also, Rice got his 25 carries and almost 100 yards rushing and a td and Pierce had that real nice TD run.
