Default Guess the team

This team is 3-0 so far this year.


You get 3 hints:


1. They have beaten up on Cleveland.
2. They have needed a miracle play at the end of the game to beat a team that is now 2-1.
3. They have pounded a team that is in the hunt for the 1st overall draft pick in 2010.

Can you guess which team I am talking about?

Maybe, just maybe, people are rating the Ravens and Vikings higher than us because they weren't terrible last year?

These were playoff teams last year that have picked up where they left off.

One has a QB who was a rookie last year and looks to be elevating his play this season, the other had replaced one of the worst QB's in the league with an all time great at the position.

I'm loving our start, and I've been pro-McD all offseason, but until we prove we can do it against good teams then we can't be talked about as being on the level of the Vikings or Ravens.

Absolutely, it is true for all 3 teams.

Baltimore needed the 4th and goal stop by Ray Lewis to beat the chuggers.
Minny needed the Greg Lewis toedrag catch to beat San Fran.
We needed the deflection to beat Cincy.

I just love how this early in the season there is a perception that Baltimore may be the best team in the league and Minnesota is mentioned with the Giants and Saints as favourites to win the NFC and when the talk comes to the Broncos people start hmming and hawing and making excuses why we are 3-0 and why 3-0 isn't really as important as their preconcieved notions that the Broncos aren't a good team.
