    Re: Ravens #5 in Preseason Power Rankings



    Special teams was supposedly a big focus this off season, at least in all the press releases. Isn't that what the Sean Considine, Corey Graham & arguably the Jacoby Jones signings were all about? I think ST will be less of an issue than PFT. That's the sort of team shortcoming that Harbaugh fixes in the off. It might even be a strength this season, although I really don't know what to expect from Billy Cundiff.
    "A lot" is a two word expression denoting a great deal or greatly, as in "I like sunshine a lot." "Alot" is a lovable imaginary grammar monster. You can love a lot; you can love an alot; you can love alots a lot; but they are not the same thing.

    Bc's poll question :

    (a) sister-in-law will get paying job

    (b) sister-in-law will get paying job, then get fired after 1 month

    (c) sister-in-law will sleep 'til noon, then play with cat.

    Please think for a while, then cast your ballots.

    Thank you... Bc

    Re: Ravens #5 in Preseason Power Rankings

    When they were down to 6 teams I wrote down my 6 in order and had

    6. Pittsburgh (where PFT put them)
    5 NY Giants (Over rated even here I think).
    4 Baltimore (PFT had us 5th)
    3 SF (Mostly because of an easy division)
    2 New England (easiest schedule of anyone this year I think)
    1 Packers (Aaron Rodgers... I think he could match last year)

    As for special teams. I really think the abbreviated camp schedule last year hurt some teams and the Ravens cover and return teams especially. They should be better this year with the additions.

    It would be interesting to find out since everyone was picking the Eagles for the division. The Giants had also missed the playoffs the year before. They weren't a team that anyone was talking about until the beat the Jets the end of last season.

    I think I'd drop us a tad because of the Suggsy injury and loss of Pagano.
    You don't usually lose the DPOY and a D-Coord and not skip a beat.

    I'd like to think the Flacco, the WRs, TEs and RBs will be solid and continue to improve from last year, but OL is a concern right now, for me.

    I think a 10-14 range is probably more appropriate.

    But what the hell do I know?

    BC's sister-in-law continues to get no respect because her stats have been so-so. That's why most pundits refuse to rank her as an "elite" sister-in-law. But maybe this will be the year she puts it all together and joins the ranks of the moderate-term employed. It'd really help her in contract negotiations. But if not, maybe she can blame it on Cam?

    Hmm. What's the estimated 2013 Franchise Tag number on sister-in-laws?
    Then that makes BcRaven, Jamie Dukes.

    I understand your concern, but don't forget about the quality of other players we have on our roster right now. I'd say between 10-14 would be way too low for us, considering how superior in talent our roster is to the majority of the NFL, even without Suggs.
