Ravens disrespect lifted?

by Arjan

This week ESPN dropped a huge bomb on us. The Baltimore Ravens are currently "the team to beat" according to the powers that be.

1 (10) Ravens 2-0-0 They're balanced on offense and tough on defense. (Chadiha)

Although a fair statement, some Ravens fans rather play the disrespect card, the underdog. Coach John Harbaugh isn't happy either.

“We don’t care. We don’t particularly want that,” he said Monday. “That’s not a place we’re comfortable with. I’m going to tell you what: There are a lot of great teams in this conference. That game could have gone either way. To me, that’s the crazy nature of the NFL. It’s early. It’s week 2. But I’m proud of our football team. They won a tough game, on the road, early in the season.” (Qouted from Ken Murray's post on Ravens Insider, Baltimore Sun)

Some want to have the Tom Brady or the Peyton Manning show, where you are expected to make it deep into the playoffs and make it look easy. The Ravens just want to play like Ravens. That's all. No matter the outcome, they will come at you 60 minutes. They don't need the cute ratings, the stats. They just want to draw blood. And when it comes to be that time where games are important, they will be there, and they will come at you for 60 minutes. That's all.

A message to the Cleveland Browns: The Ravens are not the team to beat, you are. Whatever happened in the last two weeks, whatever happened in the second half, it doesn't matter anymore. Prepare to defend yourself, for this Sunday, someone's gonna let the dogs out. And they only get to play 60 minutes a week.
