I cant believe the Steelers are ranked ahead of the Saints right now. Brees would pass for 5 td's against our secondary right now.. it would be a scary site..

It's nonsense. They barely beat an awful KC, and, even though the Chiefs didn't pick up much yardage, they hung in there and moved the ball and scored against the Rats. Then a depleted SD team hung 500 yards and 26 points on them. Fact is, SD's defense looked soft, and we KNOW KC sucks, so when Baltimore has to face a little stiffer competition, and they have to depend on their offense, the harsh reality will settle in. This is .500 or so team, and this will bear out over the course of the season...
I'd like for you to make a prediction about our defense, so that I can quote it at the end of the year.

Regarding the Ravens' overall record, you had us at 7-9 or some ridiculous number until Mason came back, at which point you bumped Baltimore back to 8-8.

With that said, would you like to guess where our defense will rank at the season's end?

In the top 5, somewhere right behind the Steelers (insert sarcasm smiley here)!

In all honestly, the ravens have always had a good defense and it seems that, at least for now, they have found a new burst of energy. But the question remains, can they sustain the entire season.

The Ravens defense will be a top six defense at the end of the year, IMHO.

The rats defense will be top 10 overall and the offense will be top 15. They will probably finish 9-7 or 10-6 (The SD win wasn't one I counted on, but the Chargers were missing LT and STILL almost won, even without a running game).

Looking at their upcoming games:
-Cleveland (trap game, but...the Browns are worse than KC) Win
-At NE...Brady will light 'em up. Loss
-Cinci- Home game, but I think the Bengals will also score at will by throwing the ball. Loss, but COULD be a win.
-At Minn. Loss.
-Denver. Struggle with the Chiefs, struggle with "Air Orton". Win (Denver sucks)
-Indy. Loss


4-4 and on track to a .500 or maybe one win above .500 season.

I'll dispute that a bit.

-Cleveland...everyone calls that a trap game, but Cleveland is always a tough opponent (you know, that history thing). But they do suck this year. Win
-At NE...the Jets showed that this year, the Cheatriots aren't the team they used to be. Eff the prevent. Get in Brady's face. Win
-Cinci... I think this game could go either way, especially if Palmer has a hot day.
-At Minn... Peterson is a great RB, but he won't go over 100 yards. Favre will get sacked aplenty. Win
-Denver. You said it. Denver sucks. Win
-Indy... You also said it. Manning just knows how to beat Baltimore. And there's that history thing again. Loss

So, I see 6-2 if Cincy pulls one out at home.

I also see the Steelers at either 6-2 or 5-3 at most. And both Baltimore and Pittsburgh hovering around 10-6 or 11-5 at season's end, with maybe one of them winning the division at 12-4.
