Is this for real? ravens 8-8 third in AFC North behind the Steelers 1 . Bengals 2.

8-8 ? Possible but they have us losing to Miami ,Houston and Cleveland in week 3. I don't see any of those being loses.

I saw that as well. Baltimore has won 4 straight against Cincy at home, we are 4-0 in openning games at home. Cincy was the better team last year and STILL couldnt beat us at home..and yet they have us losing to Cincy in Bmore AND Ciny as well. TWICE! When was the last time that happend? Of course Cincy fans are certain they will sweep us(they say that every year)and still believe Dalton will somehow magically lead them to the promised land. FUNNY...TOO DAMN FUNNY.

I actually thought Cleveland winning in Week 3 and Miami beating the Ravens was more of a stretch.

Oh yeah. Ravens should defiantly win that one.

So, "Advanced Football Analytics" has the Ravens going 1-7 on the road, beating only Indy, and losing to Miami, Houston and Cleveland.

 

I'm not saying that can't happen, but to predict it is complete nonsense.

That misspelling actually works...


Pessimism is just an ugly word for 'pattern recognition'.

If anything I would think the opposite, losing to Indy

Lots of questions on this team. The back end of the defense is a real concern.  I think a wild card berth is the best that we can hope for this year. Hope we win the division - the offense needs to rebound for this to happen. We'll soon find out - can't wait for half the season for things to "gel". The time for that has been over the summer. I'm looking forward to seeing what kind of offense we'll have this year because they are going to have to carry this team.

In ESPN's defense some people here predicted 12 wins last year


Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. It has a nice sound to it

Suggs has signed. I've never been so happy to be wrong

Don't blame me, I voted Bob Barr:cool:
