Hensley and Preston continue to show their true colors. Whenever the Ravens win the victory is diminished by them because the team they beat is garbage and whenever the Ravens lose "they told you so". Can we please get some writers that actually like Baltimore and the Ravens?

I agree with your comments. If things are going well it seems they like to put the team down. Then when the fans get into their a** they write a soft piece. I agree with those writers you pointed out and you can add Davy and the radio princess.

An F for all of them.

D. Mason was right. It doesn't matter when or what time they play, they just have to keep their composure and play how they've been playing. Screw the critics and haters. When the Ravs roll into the playoffs, they'll be having a crow eating contest!

All I hope is that they do not wear those all black uniforms,if they do they will surely lose,they haven't won a game when they wear those God awful uniforms.I guess they think they look hot or tough looking when they wear those things,they don't work,so don't wear them.

I agree with the other posts that this is a new regime. The already proved it once with a good performance in Pittsburgh with the odds staked against them. Even thought the didn't win, the definately played well enought to win.

Don't get too down on the Ravens - the Redskins haven't had much success in nationally televised games this season.

Nice article, too bad it ended so abruptly. Did time run out?

I understand what Rolle is getting at, but he should care about the Ravens fans that don't live in the Maryland area and get excited over National Televised games. Although our track record isn't great on the National Level, it's still great to see them play w/o going to a bar or somewhere with the NFL sunday ticket.

The Ravens are a much better team than the Redskins and the Ravens are a bad match up for the Redskins. As long as the Ravens don't have any devastating turnovers, they will win the game b/c I don't see the Redskins driving the whole field to score a whole lot.

If the Ravens are focused and don't turn it over they will win b/c they are better.

I am not speaking for Samari, obviously, but he may have meant the fans, not just outside of Maryland. I live in Atlanta, but follow the Ravens closely and guessed that he was including you and me (and others) in his "Maryland" term.

Underneath his comment, however, is a grain of reality: the Ravens are a new team this year showing discipline and focused toughness that was not always in evidence in the past.

All the garbage about not performing well on national TV doesn't have anything to do with this team. New team, coach, QB, attitude, etc.
Neither does the color of their uniforms. They have won in the black uni's. The most prepared team will win Sunday night. Ravens 20 Skins 10.

It was Mason, not Rolle, who gave that quote, according to the article.

I can appreciate a player who is basically saying "we play for ourselves and our fans - nothing else matters."

It'll mainly boil down to how well the Ravens stop Clinton Portis (the league's #2 leading rusher), and how well the Ravens contain Santana Moss. I think the Ravens will do better stopping Portis than they did stopping Jacobs/Bradshaw/Ward of the Giants, and I think they'll do well covering Moss. I also think they'll put pressure on Campbell. The 'Skins are definitely beat-able as long as the Ravens keep their focus.
