I just finished simming their thread. There are few actual points anyone is making. Essentially their reasons for predicting the Ravens win are all falacies.

1.) Denver hasn't beat any good teams. - Aside from the obvious fact we beat them in Baltimore, beating bad teams by large margins doesn't mean you aren't a good team. This isn't like the Colts feasting on bad teams at home barely winning as time expired. We destroyed these teams.

2.) Baltimore is healthier - First it isn't true. Suggs is saying his leg is bothering him. Now that could be disinformation before the game, but whatever. Second, they have Ray Lewis back, but he isn't who he is was and is playing with one and a half arms. Their defense clearly showed they have major issues.

3.) Baltimore would have won had Chris Harris not returned the int for a TD. - Really? First, how do we know they get more than a field goal down there? Second, let's assume they do score a TD, for the sake of argument. The Broncos go into the half with a three point lead. How does that change anything that happened in the second half? Because the offense comes out with more confidence? How does it change what the Broncos did on defense? The two TD's in garbage time were some blown assignments because we let up. I don't believe how us taking a smaller lead into the half = Broncos lose.

There are a lot of reasons someone could make for the Ravens to upset the Broncos. Kruger is playing well this season, preasure inside on Beadles, Koppen and Manny could upset Manning's timing. The cold weather could impact our defense's speed and our passing rhythm. Clady could be more hurt than they're letting on. Manning could be killed by a meteor - all of these are better than what they listed.

What amazes me is how they haven't even mentioned how crappy Flacco is on the road, how we've lost one game all year, and most of all, how Manning owns them. They were in dog fight and took a lot of snaps and are going on the road on a short week while we're coming off a bye. I'm amazed how moronic they are.
