It is a mindset extending throughout Charm City that everyone is out to get Baltimore

This column in the Baltimore Sun today is bit**ing about the Ravens not getting Jim Nantz & Phil Simms every week while having to settle for the # 2 team of Gumberl & Dierdorf for Ravens games - boo hoo

And why does Baltimore often get the second-string production team? Because it is not one of the nation's Top 20 markets in size.

That must be it since we all know there is no NFL game more compelling every week than the Ravens game

What are they babbling about? They got the first MNF game of the year. Besides Simms and Nantz aren't that good anyhow IMO.

Dan, do you see Ravens stickers in Atl? Here in SC it's Steelers followed by Panthers, Dallas and GB. I have never seen a Raven's bumpersticker here.

When I used to live in SC, we often watched Steelers games at a bar named "Pittsburgh by the Sea". Another place called Oscars frequently painted the building Black and Gold for the playoffs. I've never seen a bar called "Baltimore by the Sea".

Steelers seem to be the most prevelant non-Falcons license plate frame/sticker in Atlanta, although I usually pay attention when I see those. Cowboys & Packers appear from time to time with a few Saints stickers (I even saw a Bengals license plate frame on a Mercedes SL 550 once during the offseason and wondered if the car was being driven by a Bengals player). I can never recall seeing Ravens tags on a vehicle in Atlanta

The continuing appeal of the Cowboys outside of Dallas shows Jerry Jones is pretty good at marketing a myth that has not won anything significant since the mid-1990s

My test of nationwide appeal is the fans that show up for road games - when I have attended Steelers and Cowboys games in Atlanta the crowd has been 25 - 33% Steelers & Cowboys fans - when I went to the Ravens-Falcons regular season Thurdsday night game here there were few Ravens fans

He's not a choker. Being a Choker is when you're top-tier in your position and still can't get it done.

Bert is nowhere near a top-tier QB. He's a good, solid guy, but too inconsistent to be elite, and the big knock on him is that he doesn't make the Ravens Offense better.

Yeah that is true. Pittsburgh deserved to win the second game last year. Torrie Smith clearly pushed off to catch the final td. That would have meant Steelers had home field, wouldn't have gone to Denver where Clark couldn't play etc.

I remember that... LMAO, that push off was VERY Roddy White-lite.

2 years ago, Pittsburgh played in Tampa, and the following day here in central Florida, sports-radio shows were inundated with calls, complaining how the place 'looked-like a Steeler home-game'

a friend I'd met 3 years earlier, a Buc-fan of 30 years, told me about what he'd seen, and I simply replied 'I've been tryin' to tell ya... ya just don't UNDERSTAND how fans are in Pixberk!!!'
