Default The Baltimore Ravens are my pick to win the Super Bowl

By Jason Whitlock


1. The Baltimore Ravens are my pick to win the Super Bowl.

I love the acquisitions of veteran Trevor Pryce and rookie Haloti Ngata for Baltimore's defensive line. Price and Ngata should make Ray Lewis unstoppable again. Steve McNair solves Baltimore's QB dilemma. Plus, I recently read John Feinstein's book about the Ravens, "Next Man Up," and the book made me like and respect Brian Billick.

Also, the city of Baltimore needs a feel-good story after suffering through the TV death of Stringer Bell and the incarceration of Avon Barksdale on "The Wire."

Jason Whitlock is a regular columnist for The Kansas City Star. He can be reached by e-mail at ballstate68@aol.com.

rest of story here.

Baltimore will be better, but this much better? i can think of 5 other theams that have a much better shot. They still have to go through Pittsburgh.

Whitlock will probably be picking the Browns next year.

Hey tony!!

Remember how Adam Schein was slobbering all over himself last year on Sirius Radio saying the Baltimore Ravens were going to win the AFC North and that they were one of his picks in the AFC to go to Superbowl XL??

There are easily 4-6 teams I'd take before the Ex-Browns.

That is one of those picks where Whitlock can be a self-proclaimed genius if he is right but will simply laugh it off with an "I guess McNair & Ray Lewis really were washed up" when he inevitably is wrong. Picking a long shot is a good line to start a screaming session on the Sports Reporters but is not otherwise worth arguing about.

The Ravens remind me of the Redskins when Snyder signed Deion & Bruce Smith. Prime Time names 5 years past their primes (and yes I am including their preening jerk of coach as a member of the Over the Hill Gang).

This pick is a joke.

you would think going from a 15-1 record one year, and winning the superbowl the next, the steelers would get more credit....

i love sheins show, i hate his picks. hes already made some off the wall pre season picks. jerry rice is doing pretty good as his partner. while jim miller doesnt have a radio voice (horrible on the ears) he does pretty good too.

The return of Ed Reed and Ray Lewis from injuries will certainly help the Ravens. If Steve McNair's dumb a s s can learn the offense in a reasonable time frame, then I can see the Ravens finishing 2nd in the AFC North behind the Steelers. But, I don't believe that 2nd place in the AFC North is going to earn anyone a playoff spot.
