That guy is full of nothing but piss and vinegar. He won't post until he has something to rant about or someone to break down. It's hard to talk when you have a mouth full of crow and humble pie. But the first time they lose, I'll bet my left one that he's on here with the "I told you that Flacco was going to suck because he played in I-AA Delaware, blah, blah, blah..."
What's really pathetic is he gets upset that mostly everyone here knows what a pathetic boller loving groupie he is, and he basically throws temper tantrums because of it.

He is a grown man who lives with his mom and plays Xbox when he isn't smoking meth and fantasizing to his Topless Kyle Boller posters!

LMAO

I will just ignore the gump from here on out. Hopefully, he blows his own brains out due to extreme frustration and being all alone in real life.

We're not talking about team bias. We're talking about racial bias. This guy will always sing the praises of black players over equally talented white players any day. His harsh words for an injured Boller and displaced Billick showed his lack of class. Troy Smith is a garbage NFL QB...but if he ran a ball in from the 2 yard line Preston would be talking about it all season.
And if Mike's picture didn't run next to his columns, you wouldn't have a CLUE that he's a black man 95 percent of the time. Just because a black guy has the NERVE to say another black guy might be a better option than a white guy, you call him out as racist. By that measure, if white guy said Boller was a better option than Troy Smith, that also makes HIM a racist. And his harsh words for Boller came when the guy was healthy. I guess his distaste for Billick was racist too. Of course, how do we explain his praise for Harbaugh and Cam Cameron???? If you want to, you can color everythign with race. Apparently, you want to.

where are all you guys crying about how hard the preseason was? I did'nt see any Ravens running out of gas yesterday (while several bungles headed in for the i.v). what i saw was a well coached team working hard as a team. there was no show boating or chest pounding they actually acted like profesionals. anyone who doesn't beleive that Billick was part of the problem just wasn't paying atten.

I'm not going to be juvenile and call you names, but you are wrong. It was Flacco to Mason on end around to Clayton on reverse. If it had been a running back it would make no difference. It would still be a reverse.
You want to meet in person so you can call me a "control freak know it all?" I live in Hampstead, Md. but would meet up anywhere. Lets see what tough words you have for me in person.
Guess we all just can't play nice in the sand box.

There you are cupcake! Whats wrong with topless Boller posters? Is yours getting stained and worn out? Like your #7 Ravens jersey, especially near the bottom. You silly boy.

You love Kyle Boller. He is central in every one of your posts and your name is based on him.
No poster obsesses over Boller more than the Richmond latent cupcake queen, even more than you are obsessed with Flacco's division 2 status. He also mentions suicide quite a bit so there are possibilities there.

There is no football content to the posts just rage. More likely that is just a pose. Reminds me of Chad Johnson's near psychotic need for attention.

yeah, who knew hard work and dedication unlike camp creampuff would lead to wins? Interesting concept even for Billick

the ravens had two once in a season scores in one game. i'd like to see something a little more routine that actually works.

Pull him? pull him? what are u an idiot...he's a rookie and he completed a little better than half the passes, played hard, and remained calm...this kid is a stud no question about it and he can play in this league, i know him from U of D and he's as level headed as they get.

DAMN Preston, I knew you'll have a POSITIVE ARTICLE once the Ravens were eating the clock by POUNDING the ball with 6 minutes left.

This was a great win and it will definitely change the mood in the LOCKERS. They looked like a TEAM and that's what Harbaugh's been saying pretty much every single time he's on TV. To get a TEAM WIN like the one yesterday shows us that we might have a shot. Brady's out and not that many AFC teams did good. I'm sure if we stay healthy and play SOLID FOOTBALL, we're gonna be a tough team to deal with.

Our defense INTIMIDATES opponents when we're healthy and Rex Ryan most likely asked the MAESTRO "BUDDY RYAN" for some more schemes from Buddy's playbook!! If Flacco keeps it up and the offense STEPS IT UP a notch, we're gonna have a lot of fun watchin our boys compete.

How about Jarret Johnson?? That dude is CRAZY!! Neal is no joke. He could run over Sizzle and Ray Ray if he wants too!! LOL, and McClain is definitely looking good. I also think Clayton might have woken up as of yesterday, but Heap is still asleep. I'm sure he will bounce back and does his thing. <--- if he stays healthy!

When Flacco dove into the end zone after that 38-yd. run...the stadium exploded.
It was as if we gave "birth"...right there...to the new era.
As if all the QB's we DIDN'T have...all at once...were gone and done.
It was magic.
And we rejoiced.

Did you notice that Reed, Suggs and Cmac played a really big part in that win yesterday? Reed stripping Johnson, and Cmac with those INTs and fumble recoveries and Suggs covering TJ.

I notice they had like two seconds of training camp.

The "tough" camp was because Harbaugh had to introduce his way of thinking and because we were installing a whole new offense and the QB competition. Let's see how the year plays out.

Flacco did a very nice job, but let's give the game ball to that offensive line!!! Protecting Joe and clearing the way for 220 rushing yards. Great job, boys!! Beating Houston next week could provide some huge momentum going into a tough part of the schedule.
We have the nucleus of a great offensive line. The middle (Center and both guards) are already rated high by many. The question is at the tackle position (both sides), but we have some young, high-potential athletes for those positions.

However, from what I saw on Sunday, the line, RBs and QBs seemed to be on the same page and picked the others up. It was a good sign and, if it continues to improve, could lead to some fun games this season.

With the Ravens defense, if I were Flacco, I would concentrate on managing the offence - taking shots when available, but if not, winning the field position battle.

Last year, the defense took some hits because of injuries, but also because they were forced into short fields too often.

This year could be different......

Flacco is the real deal, and so is our new coaching staff, it's so good to have a competent QB and Coach now.

The Ravens are no longer the laughing stock of the NFL.

The offensive play calling was excellent. McClain's running reminded me of Bam Morris or Jamal's rookie season, just dragging people. And then Flacco - Joe Cool. Its amazing seeing a rookie come out with so much poise. Hope it lasts all season long.

Hey tons of fun, they never were the laughing stock of the NFL. However, you are the laughing stock of this room. It's pathetic that you need to make names like to that convince yourself. It's too bad it doesn't convince any of us.
