Joyner is an idiot. Check your facts before you make a fool of yourself again.

I think we are getting better at the perfect time of year. I don't care what sports writers have to say . How in the world can our schedule be considered easy are you freaking kidding me? I do understand the need to make a living but can we at least try a little integrity. you want to talk a soft schedule look at the falcons then come back and spew nonesense Joyner.

Agreed ... Cant ever count out any qb in the NFL.. That being said , you expect the odds makers to lean more to us after big ben gets announced OUT lol.

I think the ravens are alot smarter then to prepare less just because Big Ben is hurt haha ..I think we are going to plAY a good game hoping to win by say a touchdown or two :-P

The way this game's shaping up seems like the whole world will be watching, I've got a gut feeling that Joe Flacco will become an ELITE QB after this game

KC Joyner, thank you! We thrive as the underdog! And your 5 reasons that the Ravens are pretenders are laughable!

Another interesting wrinkle here is that in 2003, Leftwich was the quarterback that the Ravens were trying to move up to get by trading with the Vikings, but Jacksonville swooped in and took the spot at the last second, and we ended up with Mr. Boller instead.

KC joyner [is wrong]. Come playoff time no one will want to see the ravens, especially if they have to come to M&T

Reasons Why The Ravens Are Contenders:

1:They have that playoff pedigree. They know how to get there, and they know how to win when they are there.
2:Raven's defense is getting better every week. With Suggs back, everyone else becomes a little better. Redzone defense = Best in NFL
3:Their 7-2 record wasn't built on pretty wins, but they know how to get it done in a close game.
4: When Rice isn't producing, like last Sunday, the passing game can carry us. Flacco is becoming more comfortable with his targets, including Jacoby Jones who is quickly becoming a big part of the offense.
5: They have camaraderie. This team is a family and they trust each other and love each other. Football is a game of emotion and this team has plenty of that.

I've come to completely tune out all "predictions" about what "kind of a team" anybody has. Were the Giants worldbeaters last year? Or in 2007? How many times did we read "Just give the Packers the Lombardi now" articles last year before they lost their home divisional round game to a 9-7 team after going 15-1?

Just about the only Super Bowl in the last 5 years that made sense according to these "analysts" was '09, but how many of these "experts" predicted both the Saints and the Colts would fail to reach the Super Bowl because they rested their starters for the last two weeks of the season?

Stop letting these blowhards get under your skin. They're just paid to make you angry.

We haven't quite hit our groove in the second half, but if we win the next 3 straight then everyone will be calling us a shoo-in for the Lombardi. Beat writers are just that beat!
