    I will think on it today. As of yet, we haven't established the language of the bet. I believe you said the Ravens would win Nine games. I said no more than five, initially. Recently I adjusted to six...

    So what of seven and eight?? Are they a push/no action?

    Re: stakes.... I'd be down with a 100 dollar donation to .NET but I don't think it would be right to take your wife's money...

    Lets think on it.

    Yeah, 7-6 wins is a push in this case. $100 donation to .net is fine, but a bit pansy-ish, which is unsurprising coming from you. Something more annoying and potentially embarrassing/humbling would be more my bag here.

  • Pansy-ish? Really? You don't know me well enough to suggest I am prone to pansy, I wouldn't think. How about a $300 donation and a 2 month ban from .NET?? (To commence one week after the Super Bowl)? 3month?

    The delayed enforcement is a bit pansyish, I'm sure, for a big tough brute like yourself, benji, but I wouldn't feel good about taking away the thrill of a Seahawks Super Bowl Run on .NET over a silly bet. And I am not willing to risk that, for myself, either.

    Again, lets think on it.

    See, you're just barking up the wrong'un with all that. It needs to be something funny for the other party, not vindictive. Do you still have the beard? What about you shaving off the beard and going beardless for the entire offseason if you lose?

    That's way too easy. I almost always do that. My beard generally grows mid-August until April.

  • Ravens still have Ray Rice who singlehandedly won the game against San Diego after their defense blew yet another lead. Flacco shows elite play every once in awhile too (even if he got an outrageous contract) and their secondary is pretty young/talented. They have great coaches on both sides of the ball as well. Obviously not having Ray and Ed will hurt them but someone else will step up. Browns won't do anything until they get a quarterback and even then Josh Gordon is their only decent wide receiver. Trent will be good this year but they just aren't complete enough to compete. Average pass rush, no safeties, Joe Haden can only do so much. The fact they signed Jason Campbell proves they still are the same Browns of old.

    Bengals will get better but Andy Dalton is average. If AJ Green wasn't the next Megatron his stats would be much worse. I don't see them making much noise in the playoffs until they get a better QB or Andy Dalton becomes a great system quarterback like Hasselbeck became for us, but even then Matt understood the West Coast Offense better than most.

    Steelers are old and have no playmakers on offense. Defense continues to be old. I can see them being below .500 for the next few seasons.

    AFC is average and will be for the next few years so I can still see two teams coming from this division, but Ravens will be in the playoffs.

  • Post Draft and OTAs. I'm still all in on Cincy winning the division and no way in Hell Baltimore sees the playoffs as many in this thread believe.

  • The Ravens did lose a lot, and they didn't exactly clear the bar by a ton to make the playoffs last year. But Ozzie Newsome is one of the best GMs in the game and he just had a pretty strong draft (again). Dumerville is an upgrade over Kruger, IMO. I'm starting to wonder about Flacco too. He was sensational in every postseason game. Every single game his passer rating was 110+. Did Flacco just turn the corner? Smith and Rice are pretty darn good too. I'm keeping an eye on that offense.

    I do think BFS is right about one thing though (and remember, BFS picked the Ravens for the SB before last year, we had the same SB prediction). Anyway, he's right about Cincy. I'd expect Cincy to take the division this year. Cincy is young and they are tough. They are about the closest thing the AFC has to the 49ers or Seahawks.

  • Ozzie is one of the best in the business. you guys need to trust him more. IMO ravens are better this year then last. Their draft was strong and they plugged a lot of holes they needed to cover. with the additions of Marcus spears, and chris canty through free agency that allows Ngata to move over to full time DT, which he is very dominate. and with brandon williams to take over terrance cody IMO they have the best D Line in the league with a deep rotation. Arthur brown should be a very good MLB to take over ellerbe, and they picked up Daryl Smith who when healthy is a potential pro bowl LB'er. Bernard pollard was good but was a liability in coverage and Ed reed lost a step. Michael Huff is a stop gate, but he can get it done. And Matt elam should be great for the ravens. They will bring a top 10 defense to the field in 2013 BOOK IT!!. on offense they are essentially the same except for the loss of Boldin. I believe this is the big move that will hurt them the most. If they do not win the division it will be because another receiver on their team does not step up and take some production away from Boldin. Outside of boldin and Smith I think all the other WR's on the roster had a total of like 20 catches or something.. So if they can get a WR to step up and take on some production then I believe they will win the division and go deep in the playoffs. You heard it here first folks. oh and BestFightStory... you can BOOK THAT

    It was a Loss. I still don't think Baltimore wins their division, nor makes the playoffs.

    pwned.

    Baltimore sure looks like an 8-8 team right now. There are a few things to like about the 2013 Ravens, but not one thing you love. Both their defense and their offense looked incredibly ordinary.

    Cincy is looking like a cinch for the AFC North right now.

  • I still see the Ravens going 9-7 or 10-6, probably getting a wildcard in a relatively weak AFC. Remember that Mile High is a tough place to play, and they have a lot of new starters on D that might take a game or two to get in rhythm. I just don't see who else grabs a wildcard ahead of them, maybe KC and/or Indy?

    Wonder if the Ravens are starting to re-think think that $20 mil per year contract they gave Flacco?

    Agreed. I mentioned last night that it's like they didn't bother to look at the regular season statistics.
