If you don't want half-assed opinions parroted back at you, don't offer half-assed opinions. I'm not "picking" the Steelers to win the Super Bowl. It's a tough year to be doing that if your team isn't the Patriots. I do have hope, though. Crazier things have happened. All you have, apparently, is bitter moping.<quoted text>OWNED? C'mon. Anytime it is one team and the referees versus another team in the Super Bowl, guess who's going to win with or without the luck. I guess it depends on how you define "owned". If getting a half arsed opinion parrotted back at you is owned, I guess he does. But, your collective kool aid induced delusion that your team is heading to a victory in the Super Bowl - or that you'll even make it to the Super Bowl is amusing. I have no delusions that the Ravens will make the Super Bowl, you guys, on the other hand, are going to get stopped out and you don't even know it yet. The future owns you guys and it doesn't look good for you.
And you're right that these things go in cycles, but your up cycle is AT LEAST two years away. It's probably three or four, because you have to find and develop a QB, and replace a lot of your D. Like it or not, it's RE-BUILD-ING time in Baltimore.
