    Later than normal, but still here

    I don't think I've posted later than the first preseason game (not counting the HOF game), but better late than never. One "doesn't count" game down, three to go.

    Haven't had the time (or the inclination) to dig deep into every position on every team in the AFCN, but a quick glance shows me the Steelers are probably favored to win the division again. But I think the Ravens are going to surprise a few folks this year.

    I think Jackson is going to be a bust, just so you know. He'll be just good enough to break your heart. He'll have the wow plays and then throw the game losing pick.

    Who's on the list of running QB's that last? Trust me, I won't be surprised if he's a flash in the pan.

    Objectively, I definitely think Baltimore can make the playoffs and even win a division title, especially in the raging tire fire of a conference known as the AFC. They were close to 10-6 last year, they have pieces on defense, plus they have better skill position players.

    Welcome back. We understand your tardiness....probably caught up in the HOF game and Ray Lewis getting his Orange Jumpsuit.

    Welcome back

    Ravens seem ready for a bounceback season and IMO have an excellent shot at winning the division

    Probably good for Ravens fans that Harbaugh needs to coach outside his comfort zone since missing the playoffs for another season may be it for Harbaugh in Baltimore

    I honestly think people are closing the door on Flacco WAY too soon. I understand fans are gonna be fans and want the new kid to be their savior, but when Flacco actually has talent around him and a decent play caller, he’s a QB who can win you a Super Bowl. He’s proven that.

    I think Flacco has a chip on his shoulder now and is gonna remind people how good he is. I feel bad for him; the way fans are turning on him so hard.

    Remember when Ravens fans were saying he was better than Ben?

    I don't think most Ravens fans are turning on Flacco. Some for sure, but not most. And I agree with your "chip on his shoulder" comment. Unlike last year when his back injury was a big factor, he seems healthy and is throwing the ball well.
