    AP Panel on Ravens



    The AP puts together a panel of experts every season called the AP Pro32. This panel is made up of media guys and ranks every team in the league. What's interesting is that everyone isn't always on the same page. The Ravens average out to the #5 ranking. Alex Marvez seems to be the only one really different ranking the Ravens #17. Marvez seems to feel we have too much age at key spots. No one mentions Flacco at all with the exception of Chris Collinsworth and he seems to be a big fan. Check out the details from the link

    My guess:

    The national media will forever look at the ravens in a different light after watching 5th year flacco go up against mannings, romo, vick, rivers, etc. 2012 will be the year that the "smashmouth ravens" become "joe flaccos ravens".

    God I hate that "window is closing" crap. How long have the talking heads been saying that about the Ravens? Why do they all presume the team will wither away like a tumbleweed when Ray Lewis retires?
    "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.

    Marvez is a genius. 17th? worse than over half the league because of an aging defense... steelers 11 because they have "returning vets" on defense. there goes your creditability. Besides Ed and Ray, where exactly are we old on defense at all?

    Yes, pretty clueless to rank us that low.

    Right, while it will be a sad day that Ray Lewis retires (albeit with his 2nd Super Bowl ring I hope), did he not miss 4 games in 2011 (?) Didn't the Ravens win all four of those games (?) Nobody can ever make up for his departure, but the Ravens do have a lot of young defensive talent to take up the slack. Here's my bet to Marvez : If the Ravens don't make the playoffs, and have the 17th best record, I'll give him $1,000.00. If the Ravens do make the playoffs or have the 16th best or better record, then he has to date my sister-in-law 4 Saturday nights in a row. Is that fair ? ... Bc

    Funny how the window has been closing on Ray Lewis for four years now. I guess it's one of those wood-frame windows with flaking paint that got stuck on the way down
    After 5 years of early exits, the journey is finally complete.

    This is such a common misperception with most of the media. Lewis and Reed are such cogs, and Suggs has been in the league for a long time too...it seems like our defense is really old. But it's not at all. Suggs is still in his 20s; Ngata, Webb and Smith are all coming stars and have years left to play. Lewis and Reed still have time to play effective football to find some new stars to replace them if they need to.

    This defense may or may not be elite, but it's not going to be bad and isn't likely to be average unless a few more people beside Suggs get injured.
