Ray is pretty forgiving--when Portis came out of college and played for Denver, he basically said that Ray Lewis was overrated. And that's a 'Cane talking about a 'Cane!!!

She is not running the ball in us, especially not in our house. I predict that she comes up with an excuse not to play against the Ravens. She doesn't want to look bad with the whole nation watching, and Ray and the boyz beating her up.

Good for U jack. Impressive knowledge. You also can't spell an "A*S KICKING" without an S. That's what's coming for the Skins.

Fire Trembley - You know who else is quick? Chris Johnson. How did that go? The ONLY team that has been able to run against us has been the Giants (in the 1st half and ONE PLAY of the 2nd half) and the only reason they could was b.c the Ravens D came out to amped up and therefore uncharacteristically overpursued and missed tackles. It never happened before and hasn't happened since. Also, a picture of all of Portis's injuries would look like that old operation board game. no way he is running for more than 40 yards (and that is generous) on this "aging defense".

This post has finally convinced me that you don't actually believe what you say...you're just out to try and get all of our goats. Aging defense? You mean the one that hasn't given up a TD in the last 10 quarters of play? Given up a total of 3 points in the last 2 games?

I hope Portis does play. Because I guarantee he doesn't get more than 60 yards rushing against our impervious run defense. And our secondary, which seems to be improving weekly (it's actually ranked higher than our rush defense if yesterday's rankings in The Sun were accurate), will continue their interceptions with Campbell. Reed's starting to look like his old self again.

Too bad Dawan Landry misses the game. I'm sure him and his brother had it circled on the calendar at the start of the season.

Wait to ignore McGahee and Santana Moss and that its sad Sean Taylors not in the matchup. Great job shortchanging an obvious storyline.

The Ravens D are already in his head. We won before the game even started.

What a terrible story. You cant headline an article about Miami and neglect to mention a pro bowler like McGahee. Has McGahee fallen that far out of people's minds that he isnt even an afterthought in a story about a University of Miami running back?

So fellow fans what do you expect them (Preston and haters) to write us after the win? Oh the Ravens played "another" bad team so if we continue to beat down good team we still are considered as lucky and or the opposing team were has a lot of injured players and or better they were resting their key players, right?

I was gonna start Portis in my fantasy league this weekend. I figured "What the hey, he probly won't get alot of yards but he might score a touchdown." But now that you have predicted he will have a monster game and torch the Ravens' D, I feel much more comfortable sitting him on the bench.

Better to be thought of as a fool than open your mouth and remove all doubt.
Your lack of football knowledge never ceases to amaze me. You really don't understand the game.

Most of you guy's could care less what I think but I'm throwing it out there anyway. The Ravens front 7 is better then the Skins. The Skins secondary is better. So, if the Skins can run the ball they win. If the Ravens can pass they win. My opinion, a low scoring game. I see the Skins win 17-14. I'm ready for the onslaught of hate coming my way. I hope it's a good game.

As a Steelers fan, I'm pulling for Washington. It would help us out, especially if the Steelers can beat Dallas.

It's kind of nerve racking to have the Ravens right on our heels when our schedule is so tough.

If you posted more like this then there would be less hate going your way, but sometimes you chose to be ignorant and then us Ravens' fans get ignorant back.

Don't I recall the self same Portis playing for Denver against the Ravens and getting totally whupped?

I can't see Washington stopping our offense, and I can't see their offense doing much of anything against our D either.

I'm going to guess Portis gets about fifty yards rushing, maybe 60 if he has one long run.

As for the score, I go with my earlier prediction: Ravens 34- Skins 10.
