Default Baltimore sportswriter considers Denver no obstacle

Baltimore sportswriter (and known d-bag) Mike Preston considers Denver no obstacle at all for the Ravens if they meet in the playoffs. of course, these quotes show he has no idea what he's talking about, but that's never stopped those idiots on the east coast from pontificating about the Broncos this year. also, this guy thinks the Ravens are have the best chance and path to the superbowl.

Denver quarterback Tim Tebow has become the darling of the national media, but he can't beat the Ravens running that one-dimensional offense. The Ravens would smack him silly regardless if the game was in Denver or Baltimore.

I think the Broncos could be a tough match-up for the Ravens. The Broncos don't depend on getting 28 points from their offense.

They could get into a slug-fest with Flaccidio, play a smash-mouth, low-scoring game, get some turnovers, and win 21-14. The Ravens offense is not reliable.

They just got owned by a team that likely won't even make the playoffs, so I'm thinking any team they play should be considered an obstacle.

I think the ravens are the worst match up in the AFC for Denver. Preston may be a dOOfus, but considering how many times Baltimore has smacked Denver around, it's understandable he and everyone else in B-more thinks that way.

Apart from the aging secondary and McGahee, Denver has a young and inexperienced team and it's going to be a challenge just to get into the playoffs.

Defensive teams play this teams game. This team hasn't lost a close game with Tebow in. The Ravens will be Tebowed if we play them.

Easy to say when you have never stepped foot on a football field.

For what it's worth, my grandma likes the Ravens also.

The Ravens kick our ass every time we play them. Lets face it, they have our number. Hopefully we can keep it close till the 4th.

Yeah, and we always lose in Miami, at KC, and always beat the Pats. I'm not sure why people even try bringing up the past at this point.

actually we match up well with the ratbird bastards ... question I have is who will those bastard put to spy Tebow ?
think that will be the Key matchup the entire game ... Be hard to run if they have Dickhead ( ray Lewis ) or Penis noggin( Suggs) , but the short passing game should be there ... Be an interesting game fo sure

I have an RSS feed in Google reader of a news search containing the word "Tebow." Every story that Google indexes as "news" and contains Tebow. I visually scan it all the time -- usually one little Tebow fart causes 29 different variations of the story, either because different outlets write a story about the same thing, or the same story is carried multiple times.

a perfect matchup for us, in my opinion

btw, they just got OWNED by the Chargers so maybe they should stop worrying about what is going on three weeks down the line and concentrate on fixing their own ****

Things aren't the way they have been in the past. Our ownage of NE took a hit, we score from the red zone and we can come back and win a game. I think teams with stout defenses and average offenses are the best teams we can play.

Isn't this how Chicago felt?

Agreed.....all the more reason for us to pray we get the #3 seed if possible. Then we'd face Unibrow in round 2....rather than Brady.

Right now I'm just focused on making the playoffs. Will think about that once we make the playoffs.

Funny a Baltimore paper ripping another team's QB while it's own has been in the NFL longer and hardly rated as one of the best in the NFL.

Meh. If/when we play Baltimore is when I will/might be upset/annoyed at what this reporter/douche wrote/shat out.

Until then, GB2.

Nobody out here on the east coast takes the Broncos very seriously. The two "good teams" we've played beat us handily. So we won't be respected until we beat somebody in a playoff game, which hopefully will happen!

It could be similar to the Jets game, except Flacco is even more risk prone than Sanchez and Tebow has progressed as a passer since the Jets game.
