Default OK, you've had your two weeks.....

so, who's gonna win the AFC North this fall?

The Ravens are looking at some major FA hurdles and salary cap issues, so at this point, I'm not saying anything.

Still celebrating. 2 weeks isn't long enough.
When you waited 26 years between SB's, you learn to appreciate them longer.

Get back with me in August.

26 years? Did you forget about SB XL in 2006?

You must be alot younger than I am. For those of us who are older....the drought went from SB XIV to SB XL. That's 26 years between SB's.

I appreciated XL and I'm going to appreciate XLIII as well. 2 SB's in 4 years is not the norm.

Probably not. It just sounded like you were saying you had been waiting 26 years for another Steeler SB win when it was only 3 years.

Hopefully we'll know a little more about where we think our seasons will be heading before August. But since Boller was still the Ravens starter as of August 2008, maybe not!

Well Lets see come back and ask in June this Super Bowl is just to much!
We all know who is favored. With Suggs, Scott, and Ray-Ray possiby gone, your defense won't be much to talk about.

I see one gone. Maybe Ray, maybe Scott. Suggs will stay, franchise tag or not. We have some other good LB's anyway, like McClain and Barnes. I'm sure the Ravens defense will still be a good one.

I think you got to look at the Steelers as the favorites to win the AFC North again in '09. They beat the Ravens last season everytime given the opportunity and then there is Cleveland and Cincinnati. I really think the Bengals offense can get back to where they were in '05 and if they can keep T.J. and just let mouthman move on and they can work on that running game in the upcoming draft they should be tough to beat again in '09. Cleveland had its season ruined with injuries to their 2 star QB's. I still think the Browns can be a good offense with just a little help, they must get some running game to go with a decent passing game when QB's are healthy.
The Ravens are or should still be very tough on defense and if they can keep that Big Mouth Ray Lewis on the team they have one of the best leaders in the league.
But I think the Steelers still have the team to beat in the AFC North.

I really hope they break the bank for oveRAYted Lewis. That will be the final nail in the Ravens coffin IMO. Hopefully the FO in Baltimore is still drinking the Ray Ray kool aide.

Fearless forcast: Ravens sign Lewis and criple themselves in regards to thier salary cap, franchise Suggs only to have him pitch a fit and sit out. Bart Scott leaves in FA. Ratbirds finish 3 games behind the Steelers in a 3 way tie for last with the Browns and Bunglers.
