    I agree, except the Orioles are led by one of the best baseball minds in the business. They achieved their record because the whole added up to more than the sum of its parts. I don't know what to make of the Ravens, TBH.

    He/she may be right about the wins and losses of certain teams but I do not know how a ravens fan can think/hope for the worse because I am sure if we win out(just an example) this person would come back and never admit they said it thats me though

    Re: How does this team get to 10 wins?

    Without reading all of the replies to this thread, let me suggest what I had in mind before the Cleveland game. I was thinking that if the offense and defense showed significant improvement coming out of the bye week (which they did) with no further injuries to key players, then 10-6 would be realistic.

    Looking at the remaining schedule, starting with the Browns game, I saw the Ravens winning two (@Cleveland, Oakland), losing two (@Pittsburgh, @San Diego), winning two (Pittsburgh, @Washington), losing two (Denver, NYGiants), and winning one (@Cincinnati). I believe that would be the easiest path to securing a playoff berth, assuming 10-6 is adequate.

    I'm sure this has been said, but i will reiterate. By wining four more

    I remember the 1999 Ravens who outplayed most of their opponents only to lose (see both Jacksonville games just to name a few).
    The Ravens have issues but they are winning which is the only thing that matters.

    I know everyone wants consistency and dominance but this level of adversity may serve them well down the road.

    Relax

    Re: How does this team get to 10 wins?

    The Ravens will probably let this one get more interesting than it needs to be, but will pull it out late.

    You know, I've been thinking more and more about it. It would be just like the Ravens to go into Pittsburgh and beat the Steelers, only to lose to San Diego the following week.

    To be on the conservative side, I'll give the Ravens three of the next four (Oakland and either a split with the Steelers + a win at SD or Oakland and a sweep of the Steelers).

    I'm not too concerned about the Giants. They play when they want to play. They just might not be in the mood that Sunday. They seem to be in that 'Call me when we have to win/when the playoffs start' mode. That's four right there. Washington makes five. Cincinnati makes six.

    I think 12-4 is doable and good enough for a first round bye.

    The only consistency that matters to me is consistently going deep in the play-offs and that takes consistently winning game. 75% is pretty consistent and that's their winning percentage at the halfway point. 100% is their percentage for making the play-offs since 08...that's as consistent as it gets. They might not be pretty all the time but they win and that's what matters.

    I agree. All this crap about winning pretty is bullshit.

    The Steelers were down 10 in the 4th quarter to the Giants and basically on one big play turned the whole game around. If you didn't watch the game, you'd have thought the Steelers won going away based off a dominant performance. They played well when it counted and won which is all that matters.

    The Browns shut down the Chargers who have a better offense than Ravens yet despite the Ravens scoring 25 points because the offense was shut down in quarters 2 & 3, the Ravens were somehow losers despite winning.

    The Ravens just know how to win. I hear the same pessimism every year. We didn't light the Browns up in Cleveland last year. We will win more than we lose over the next 8 games. We have a team of winners. The Texans game was an exception. They knew they outplayed us in the playoffs last year and still lost. They had this game marked on their schedule. Our team is one of the big boys now and has been for a couple of years. Stop thinking the worst and lets conduct ourselves as if we are fans of an elite team because despite what I'm reading in this thread we are elite. Our fans panic to quickly. Pitt looked horrible early in the year but I knew they would be in the thick of things because even though I despise them they have similar DNA as the ravens. They are winners.

    Re: How does this team get to 10 wins?

    I think we can pull off 2 more wins regardless of Cam getting his head out of his ass.
    Raiders
    Skins

    The rest I am really up in the air the way the team has been playing.
    We should beat the following.... but both are on the road.
    Bengals
    Chargers
    vs Steelers

    I'm really concerned with the rest.
    Denver coming off of 10 days, they play Thursday the week before us, that gives Manning (who usually finds a way to beat us even with a dominate D) 10 days to prep.
    Giants
    @ Steelers

    And their schedule was one of the easiest in the league, look at the rest of their schedule.

    But then the Orioles got great defense on the left side with Machado and Mclouth. Great SP from Gonzalez, Tillman & others. The Orioles trended upward and reversed the run differential.

    That stuff didn't happen until they were significantly into the second half of the season.

    Hopefully the Ravens can do the same during their second half.
    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.

    Re: How does this team get to 10 wins?

    Win tomorrow gets us to 7.

    Split with the Steelers = 8

    Win @ Washington = 9

    Win vs. either Giants or Denver (we aren't losing both of those) = 10


    That's what I think.. then you take one more roadie, either San Diego or Cincy.. and I think we'll get to 11.
