I hated it when the Colts left town. I didn't root for any team including the Colts until Johnny Unitas "forgave" them for leaving. I am huge Colt fan now. I'm glad the kicked the ravens butts!

Every writer jump on the band wagon and take a shot at the ravens. Just don't suit up and play against them. Writers have it easy, just write their opinions and hope some one reads it.It is a rebuilding season.

I had the Colts game as a loss at the begining of the year anyway. 8-8 would be great! We'll see....

The Ravens were formerly a team divided. The offense came out, sucked, and the defense resented every moment of it. If they lost, it was because their offense lost. If they won, it was because of their defense.
The one great and encouraging change I've seen this season is that the Raven's are becoming one team. They've fought four great, close battles, as a team. Sunday was the first time they've truly lost as one team.
Everybody has to admit that the whole unit on both sides of the ball was to blame. I think this might be good for their attitude in the long run.
But I always find myself reminding sports-casters, writers, commentators, football-gurus, and fans alike:
There is one universal rule in football that makes this sport so exciting to watch: "Any given Sunday..."
Don't write anybody off. Ever.

Make or break their season !! Come on .. these problems .. O-line, QB .. no downfield plays ... blocking or the absence thereof .. crumby tackling ... unimaginative play calling sure aren't NEW !!! Until we go back blow up the source (the Oz-man) and send him packing and get someone in there that can evaluate talent .. we're GOING NOWHERE !!! One game doesn't make or break a team that is already broken and just beating the lousey teams for appearance and Harbaugh's 'rah rah go team' mentality !!. Please stop reminding me of the 13-3 year just a few years away. Do some homework and see just HOW that team won 13 games ... beating mostly bad teams from the year before !! Nothing has changed !! This team STINKS !!!

WR's. CB's. Outside Speed RB, healthy Offensive Line. Without these I don't see much success. Especially the first two on the list.

you'll suck, you wont beat maimi but dont feel bad... peyton will throw 4 td against pitts, 5 td at clevelend and 7 td no, no, 8 td at home when we kill cincinnati..... so again be lucky he didnt throw that 4th td in the 4th qu..... but we here qu? why he threw that in the first place... maybe to run up the score on the #1 defense in the league... or now the 28th defense after that as* kickin.... again were was ray lewis after the game????

it's funny to read all these comments, but when the ravens have another, and i'm not saying this year, superbowl run season where people are talking shit like this. it's going to be funny to see how many people become band wagon fans. people are stupid. if you're a ravens fan you're a ravens fan for life. just like I'm an O's fan when they went to the world series i was 2 I never experienced that but every year I go to the games i'm an O's fan for life. so all these people and shove it. GOOOOOOOO RAVENS!!!!!!!!!

Hey BaltimoreBOB, we have something in common, we both are from Baltimore and live in Fayetteville. But the one thing we definitely don't have in common is that you lost your hometown pride and followed the Colts to indianapolis. I am not an old time Colts fan, they were gone by the time I was born... My grandfather and father were both colts fans. But when they left, they were dead to them. Why would you be happy that your "team" by beating your CITY. You should have some room in your heart for Baltimore's franchise, simply because it is Baltimore's franchise.
