This season: The Ravens are too inexperienced. The window has closed.
Me: Be ready for a surprise. The window is wide open.

It was a well known fact to most that coming out of the draft, I was not fond of seeing you in purple and black. Your hands, catching technique, and sloppy routes were some of my biggest issues with you. My opinion was only further solidified after your rather unimpressive preseason performance. Sure, it may have only been preseason, but it was also your first time on a professional field, where you wanted to showcase your skills. I had come to the conclusion that you'd quickly fall down the depth chart, behind the likes of Lee and Tandon, and probably finish the year with around 200-300 yards and perhaps 3 touchdowns.
However, Mr. Smith, you did in fact prove me wrong. Sure, I can say that I was impressed with how you actually played on the field. Your routes aren't always the cleanest, nor do you always seem to know where you need to be exactly, and sure you don't always rope in those deep lobs, however you seemed to always find a way to get open, even if it's not the exact route you were supposed to run. Ozzie and Harbs drafted you to "go deep" and you brought that demension to this team, something that was extremely lacking for quite a while.
Even more so than what you actually did on the field, I'm more impressed with you as a person. After that preseason performance that I mentioned earlier, you told all your fans and every Raven fan that you would work harder to make yourself a better player. People say that all the time, however not many truly follow up on that statement. You did however, and it showed. I never once doubted your work ethic and that seemed to be the one thing I was correct about. You can never have too many intelligent, hard working players who only want to improve themselves.
Rarely will you hear me say this, however I was wrong when it came to you, and I'm quite happy to be wrong in this case. You may still be raw, you may still be rough around the edges. However, if this season is any indication, the sky is truly the limit for a man such as yourself with such a tremendous work ethic. 841 yards and 7 touchdowns in a rookie season is nothing to sneeze at. Keep up the good work, and keep aiming to improve. Who knows, that number one spot may be your's not far off in the future, if you want it.
Yeah, I'm eating my words from the draft right now. But hey, at least they're delicious.

Simply Amazing. Greatest curtain call I've ever seen. The chills won't leave my body.
Thank you Ray. Raven Nation loves you.

Ravens: 2013 Super Bowl Champs

1. put to rest speculation of James Harrison in Purple
2. made Ray Rice's day by sparing Vonte Leach's contract with the team
3. Made the Paul Kruger move even more palatable
4. just set Haloti Ngata up for a 2013 DPOY if he stays healthy
5. saved my marriage!

*Sniff* I'm sorry I'm emotional guys, but it's just so beautiful that our OC is not Cam Cameron anymore.

When you look at some of the posts around the board, there are a lot of people who are calling for Harbaugh to be fired, Caldwell to be fired, Castillo to be fired, are angry at Pees, and complaining about the front office.
I am confused as to why people are losing their minds so much. If this year end up being a down year for us and we don't make the playoff, I am not going to be bothered by it too much. Every team goes through a down year at some point in this league. This is the reality of the salary cap and the parity that the NFL is constanly trying to enforce. You can't be a contender every single year.
For me personally, I am happy with what the Ravens have given me in just 18 years. We have been to the playoffs 9 times, won 14 games with the highest winning percentage in playoffs history at 67%, played in 4 AFC championship games, and have 2 superbowl titles.
Under Harbaugh and Flacco, we have been the first team to make it to 5 straight playoffs appearance, win a game every years, play in 3 AFC championship, and win a superbowl in the first 5 years of their tenure.
The Ravens have set a lot of records that most teams can only dream of under a coach and quarterback in their first 5 years.
Also, by winning last year superbowl, we have given guys like Reed, Ngata, Suggs, Birk, Flacco, Rice, Smith, Yanda, Boldin, etc. what they have worked hard for. The Ravens have already accomplished what may be the toughest task in sports by winning a super bowl and giving so many great players their rings.
Even if this year result in a missed playoff, I am not too mad about it. It is all about perspective.
Teams like the Lions, Eagles, Cardinals, Browns, Chargers, Titans, Falcons, Seahawks, Panthers, etc. would enjoy what we have accomplished in just 18 years.
The success that we have had doesn't come around often. You got to apperciate it cause you never know what the future hold.
