Redicule...Ravens stomp a mudhole in us. In honor of yesterday (and the upcoming alleged "event"), I'll say the score is Ravens - 121,212 Broncos - Mayan food

Seriously.

1 guy picks the Broncos by 7.
5 others pick the Broncos by double digits.

1 guy has the Ravens.....by only 3.....and his reasoning is primarily because the Broncos have never won there.....not based on anything regarding THIS year's teams.

I cannot even begin to describe how much this pisses me off. Contrary to popular belief and NFL revisionist history, this is that same ****ing team we beat three times in four years IN THE AFC CHAMPIONSHIP. This is the ****ing Browns, no matter what the NFL says (current pretenders in Cleveland are an expansion team) that we owned in the 80's and 90's. Modell didn't buy another team, he moved them to Baltimore,no matter what the NFL says.

Let's just go kick the crap out of the Baltimore Browns like we always did when they played in Cleveland and there is no issue!

Yet never has Marty coached this team. So just maybe they are not the browns after all.

Perfect! Appropriately applies to so many but I immediately thought of John Madden.

The Ravens may have to meet the Denver Broncos Sunday without their top three inside linebackers in Ray Lewis (torn right triceps), Jameel McClain (neck stinger) and Dannell Ellerbe (right ankle, left foot, both thumbs). That would leave the defense with just three healthy inside linebackers in Josh Bynes, Brendon Ayanbadejo and Albert McClellan.

Ayanbadejo, Bynes and McClellan have carved out a niche through their play on special teams, but are not being asked to absorb the assignments that Lewis, McClain and Ellerbe would normally run on defense.

Our offense needs to put up 30+ on this banged up, mediocre defense. Suggs and Pollard will also either not play or play hurt. And on offense they'll be missing perhaps their best O-lineman with Yanda out.

Lose this game and we might not be what we hope we are...

Broncos seem to be catching the Ravens at the right time with them battling injuries and the drama of the OC being canned, etc....personally I just think the Broncos are playing at a different level now than they were in the first 5 games...as they are not only reducing but are able to overcome mistakes in the last 8 games.

Well, on any given Sunday of course....I think if the Broncos play as well as they're capable of playing, this game might not be as close as some think.

As great as this season has been we still have not seen a complete game from the team. Stagnant or sloppy first half and explosion in the 2nd half. Playing just good enough to win. Not putting teams away when the opportunity is there. Still waiting on a complete game and one of those Peyton performances he seemingly had every time he played against Denver

Thanks for typing that out for me. I second that motion.

The Ravens are going to come at us. I think we'll be ready, but I am surprised at how many people have us winning by double digits. I would take the Ravens to cover for sure.

If rumors are correct Ray will be back if nothing else their emotional leader, which i see as a improvement in play overall.

beginning of the year I had this as a slam dunk loss, now I'm not so sure..

still an east coast early game in a place we have never won..

Granted there are lots of changes on both teams but, I would not put money on winning..

Covering the spread is not the Broncos Way. If we do it, great. I just want to get out of there, with a win...

It's not just the beat writters, it is all the media and fans in this area. Everyone is worried about what DT and Manning will do to a stuggling secondary, and what Von-Doom will do to a O-line that got pushed around by the Orakpo-less deadskins. I know around 30 Ravens fans and only one guy is crowing before this game, the rest are hiding, which is not what they normally do. I think it will be a close game, but I think the home field crowd will be very nervous to start off and may not be as loud as they normally are.

It'll be a tough game either way.

I don't see either team kicking the other's ass.
