Show patience??? This coming from the jerk who loves to bash the team and convey the failures of the organization before the season even begins. I swear you are the most inconsistent and irresponsible writer I have ever seen. Wait, I get it...this terrible column is just your way of attempting to convince us that YOU will be patient before you ride another coach out of town...

Everyone take a deep breath. The sky isn't falling, the ocean is boiling and the Ravens are still 0-0. Man one major injury and everyone is ready to jump off the ledge.

Gaither's ankle is only sprained and he will be back. Terry sounds like he could be done but Ozzie will get someone to replace him.

Jeez, we are in the first week of camp and everyone is screaming for the GM's head and talking about how sucky this offense is. Anybody who was thinking playoffs for this team had unrealistic expectations anyway.

Chill!

I think he should keep being tough so that all the starters can go through the season with chronic injuries.That will really make you tough. It's the happy medium learning curve. You have no tackles now..chronic injury pain on both tackles...downgrade from 8-8 to 4-12.

How balanced can your comments possibly be with that Coach Harbaugh shrine as your sig? Interesting :-0

See how easy that was -- reading AND comprehension. Very important, Pete.

And Mike is a COLUMNIST, not a beat reporter, so he doesn't have to be balanced.

LOL! What's truly easy is laughing at your shrine. I'm glad he's good looking or you'd have to throw boy Boller back up there ;-p

Btw, Cameron's O plan and Ryan's D will save this team not the Comeback Kid's less talented brother (sorry.."Lord I appologize....").

Terry was too soft for the NFL anyway , Ozzie couldn't replace him , being a second rounder we were on the hook for most of his salary anyway,,,,,,,,,,at least we will find a tougher RT , Gaither will be fine at LT , don't give up yet , lets see who MR. Teflon brings in to shore up the line..........

You give Preston way too much credit Josh. The dude wouldn't have a job if he wrote company line promotional material every day. Umm, this is what the Sun pays him for: to be controversial. Go to Ravens dot com for the feel good propoganda ;)

Stop whinning about it's this or that guys fault. The Ravens were up against the payroll limit and could not upgrade the tackle positions. I guess the QBs will hear a lot of "LOOK OUT" as they drop back.

Here's hoping that none of them get killed.

So any really good offensive tackles iin the draft next year?

New name for the QB trio of Boller, Smith and Flacco....the crash test dummies.I would wear armor and carry a weapon of some sort to keep the beatings to a minimum. Smith is the only guy that can play behind that line. Snap the ball and run like hell!!!!!

He's a hack columnist. I've seen the "he's not a journlaist, he's a columnist" way too many times. He's essentially useless, aside from BB fodder. The best reporter on the Ravens is Aaron Wilson of the Carroll County Times.

He's not useless, how many comments has he gotten out of you so far? Mission occomplished! Preston and the Sun thank you for your continued patronage :-p

Yet again Pete -- reading AND comprehension helps. What part of BB (bulletin board) fodder don't you understand? I already stipulated that that's the only thing Preston is good for. If you want REAL news on the Ravens, read Aaron Wilson of the CC Times.

You think he's a hack because he doesn't drink purple Kool-Aid. Look, I read the CC Times every day (and actually was the paper's sports editor back in the early 1980s) and I can tell you I rearely ready much in the Times that isn't in The Sun. Aaron is OK, but he's a one man band. The Sun has 3 or 4 people regularly doing the Ravens in season and just has lots more to read about -- good and bad.

I maintain that Preston is a hack because he mixes in his own personal agendas constantly. He crosses the line even for a columnist (vs. a journalist). His pieces are rarely if ever informative; they account for little more than highly opinionated op-ed pieces. Yet the rest of the world takes his writing in a different light than people who know how biased he is.

I know I've seen your name on posts over at Ravens Central, and IIRC, you usually have the most intelligent things to say, IMO. I'm a bit confused as to your defense of Preston -- someone I consider to be basically not even worthy of defending.

So no -- I don't think he's a hack because he "doesn't drink the Purple Kool-Aid". Any survey of my posts shows that I rarely if ever respect the homers who can't see the forest for the trees. It's Preston's inaccuracies, laziness in searching out the real facts, along with his never ending bias that leads me to call him a hack.
