Birk - Atkins : i think Atkins will win that matchup.
Cary - AJ : I just hope Cary doesnt blow this one & allow over 100YDS
RB's - Burfict : I really hoped Burfict would be a Raven but, hes not .. but itll be interesting

Starters need to reach their milestones as quickly as possible and then ride the bench. Back-ups should play the second half. I don't see any reason for us to kill ourselves trying to win a meaningless ballgame, but our starters should play at least a half.

If the Ravens play like they played against the Giants then they're unbeatable although I would like to rest the starters some

Reaching a milestone sounds great, but what if a starter or even two goes down and gets injured? I recommend not playing the what-if game, and rest players for the playoffs.

Dont try to make the bungles look to bad, so just let Joe play with the "Next Man Ups" and let them get some snaps! Pierce, Allen, yes I said Allen, Doss, Williams, Thompson etc! "Conceited Im Not but Convinced I Am"! Caldwell got me PUMPED!

Approach the game as a last preseason contest. If past is precedence then the Raven's should come out smoking, as they did in their first game against the Bengals this year.Might be wishful thinking but it's worth a try.

Come out guns-a-blazing and grab an early big lead ...

Then rest everyone and put in 2nd & 3rd string players
for clean-up duty to get some real live playing time
against the opposing starters!

Just win baby!

Do not forget to give Tyrod a few snaps. Maybe give him the second half to close it out for us

I really couldn't care less what the Ravens do, as far as resting, winning, etc tomorrow. Hope they win,but being as healthy as possible and in the best position to advance in the Playoffs is all that matters, in my opinion. They'll do what's best for the team. What I hope for, is first, a win. Second, that we do get to have some backups see some game action, especially Taylor. If Flacco ever goes down (hope never), Taylor should have some game experience. It's invaluable. We've been beat by a couple backup QB's this year. I hope if the need ever arises for Taylor, he'd be ready. Plus, we'd get to see if he is capable. Only one way to find out....

Wish we could have picked up Burfict. Upshaw has been very quiet lately.

Won to play. Play to win. On behalf of Cincinnati Bengals fans everywhere, we welcome the AFC North Champion Baltimore Ravens to our sold-out house at Paul Brown Stadium. Let the game begin!

The Headline: 'Focused On Finishing Strong.' I say the most favorable match-up for us is if we lose to Cincy, this week. Maybe we'll see about what kind of game it is (how it's going) this week, but Cincy would rather play Baltimore than NE. for sure, and NE would rather play Indy than Cincy. Which means, that Cincy wants us to win and NE wants us to win so we'd play Cincy - an easier game for Cincy (then vs. Pats). We should lose, then we'd have the most favoraBULL playoff path: vs. Indy. then vs. Hous. I don't think we want NE.'s path as much, which is Cincy, and then Denv., from what I've heard here. Either way, Cincy (according to the preview video) is 2nd in the league with 47 sacks. I say, welcome to NE 8 days from now, Cincy!

All week I've been concerned about the seeding, potential this and potential that. Bottom line is this:

1. We have a home playoff game and I don't care who it's against
2. We are battle tested and built for this run
3. Even though the Giants game was just one game removed from a 3 game skid, I and I'm sure most Ravens fans can feel this thing coming together
4. Can't wait for tomorrow evening to find out who our first playoff victim will be

Go Ravens !!!
