How do you define a player who can do almost anything imaginable on a football field, who can leverage a game with the ability to deliver two or three big plays every week? How do you define Ravens safety Ed ...

Hey skay. What a treat it is this year to just enjoy the Ravens, knowing that the team has a great vison and the tactics to achieve it. The coaching is superlative, where the team has bought into Harbaugh's approach, and the defensive and offensive coordinators are masters of the game.
There maybe many here that will disagree, but I think this is a stronger team than the 2000 Ravens, more balanced, and focused. You look at the sidelines, and the players are discussing strategy, congratulating each other, and just enjoying the moments, their passion fully evident. The Ravens beat Pittsburgh, and their momentum will be irrepressible.
I was WONDERING where you've been, Phil. And, as usual, you make very valid, insightful points. When I first read what you wrote, I though: "Hmmmmmm...I don't know about THAT one. I like this team, but...better than the 2000 team? I don't think so".

But then I remembered back to the anemic offense in 2000, and I've seen some stats that seem to indicate that this D is even better -- at least stat-wise -- than the 2000 D. So...when you put those two together, it very well might add up to the 2008 Ravens being better than the 2000 Ravens. One thing to consider, though, is that it looks as if the competition might be better as well.

One thing that caught my eye -- and seems to be an example of what you're saying -- is the Gatorade bucket on Willie Anderson after the Cinci game. I think that -- as much as anything else -- demonstrates just how much teamwork is going on, and how much fun the players are having. That, coupled with a comment an announcer made after the Clayton TD pass to Mason: "Baltimore creative on offense". I mean....WHEN was the last time you ever heard THOSE 4 words prior to this year?

:o))

Great seeing you posting, man. Keep it up!

Ed Reed is the best safety in the NFL. And he doesn't have that Los Lonely Boys hairstyle like that queen from the Squeelers to boot.
Not only do we get to see the best LB Ray Lewis on a weekly basis, but also the best safety. As fans, we're truly blessed.
why don't you go rub one out somewhere else chump. You're gettin a little creepy here...

Newsflash: Ed Reed is a FS and Polamalu is a SS they're asked to do different things. Both are at the top of their game and both will represent the AFC in the probowl. And I know it's a sacred cow over here in ravensland but Lewis hasn't been the best LB in the league in a long time. He's lost a step and can't run with the elite ones anymore

.... pause for sputtering rage filled retorts....

Sunday will feature the best LB in the league right now and that's James Harrison. He no doubt will win defensive MVP and is in the running for league MVP.

LET'S GO BLACK AND GOLD!!! KICK SOME BIRD-BUTT ON SUNDAY!!!!

Dear Robert Roberts,

Troy Pomalamadingdong doesn't play any safety positon. He runs up to the line and attempts to get involved in stopping the run every play. I've heard of safeties cheatin up but he's ridiculous and I hope Cam makes him pay.

As for Harrison...he's a beast no doubt about it. But from what I've seen he striclty pass rushes more like Suggs. Lewis is and will always be a better all-around LB.

Lewis lost a step? You'd better tell the staticians. Did you like that goal line play in our first meeting where Lewis filled the gap and single-handedly took on both the fullback and runningback?

stats are for fantasy nerds dude. Harrison will win defensive MVP, lewis isn't even in the mix. Lewis makes plays...no kidding I never said he didn't I said he's not the dominator he once was. Anyway I'd take Farrior over Lewis for our scheme. He's way faster and has more tackles so far this season.

I will give you props for Pomalamadingdong that's pretty damnfunny!

Tell ya what...why don't YOU come back here when you actually have something intelligent to say?

How did you make out with Portis in your Fantasy League? About the same as all your predictions? There is a reason the betting line went from 1 1/2 to 2. With your track record,you're the kiss of death for the Steelers. Trembley, you couldn't pick your nose.

Ed Reed is one of a kind. It is truly a blessing to have him on this team. I expect to see a good game outta him win or lose on Sunday.

I like Harrison. He's one of the few ex-Ravens that's really done better on another team.

Not this a s s h o l e again! I told you that you were obsessed with Baltimore, The Ravens and the loyal fans. Its not our fault Butt-hole (Butler), Pa does not have a decent news source but please like I said before-stay away trash. And change your name to Crap black and Pee yellow, its more fitting. James Harrison wishes he had half the talent as Ray ever did, sacks dont make a complete LB idiot if they did LT would be the guy but no its Ray yes still. Sorry, you guys got Fairy-er.
