Ravens are favored by 11 points which scares me.  

The Bengals have won 3 of the last 5 games against us.   They won 5 out of 6 against us before that.  so that's 8 out of 11.

We just have not done well at all against them since 2013.   That's kind of a long time, and pretty unacceptable.   So is the smart money on Baltimore like Vegas would indicate?

Maybe it was all Marvin Lewis?   ;)

I voted for a Win ... but, I don't exactly have a lot of faith in that. lol  Like you said, the Bengals always seem to spank us when everything on paper says that we should walk away w/ a win.

Worst team in football against the run vs. 2nd best running the ball.  The Ravens don't even have to lean on any of their weaknesses in this one to win.  Now if the coaches over think it which is entirely possible.

I think the Ravens win at home.  It will be nice to hold on to first place for another week.  Schedule gets much tougher after this game.  I have them finishing the season at 6-10.

Outside of the first two drives by the Ravens, they have really played a poor game overall. Outside of the one FG by Tucker, the special teams have been awful, Harbaugh lost another challenge for no reason, and Andrews may have made one of the dumbest, most undisciplined plays that cost the Ravens points, and allowed the Bengals to get the ball back and score three points.

In other words, a typical Harbaugh football team. Up 17-10 at to the Bengals says a lot more about the discipline and true talent on this team. This team will be lucky to finish 8-8 when it goes into the grind of the schedule.

Remember when the Ravens were going right down the field on runs? Yeah, me too. Maybe somebody should remind the OC. Another punt! 

This team need a new coaching staff. This team is undisciplined and has all the skills to be a running beast but wants to throw the ball around because Roman apparently think s they have to despite the fact that the Bengals haven't stopped the run all day.

That call to throw to Boyle, and NOT even into the end zone, was idiotic. Run clock by running on third down. An option play would have been nice, but God that was bad.

500 yards of offense, I don’t think today is the day to be calling for a new OC. Def some problems with execution or specific play calls, but at least at the stadium, it never felt in doubt.

Good thing Lamar is coach-proof. Also good thing Cincy fired Marvin Lewis, this is a game he would've figured out a way to steal.

I don't know how the Ravens manage to turn a 500-yard offense day into an ugly win, but they somehow managed.  I'll take it.  Still thankful that the rest of the division is filled with trash cans this season.

    • We just had two former 2nd rounders go, so I'm going with two former 1st rounders.  People are so down on Tate, I don't get it.  Ok, so he's not a SP, but he showed enough to be a solid reliever at the MLB level.  He also reached that MLB ceiling and showed that he could have success.  So no point in having A ball "relievers" ranked over him.   Sedlock had a big time bounce back year.  Over a SO an inning across two levels, while logging around 100 IP.  Next year will be a big year for him to see if he can be a SP.  Even if he's not, he's still likely got a solid chance at being a MR in the MLB.   Harvey, Tate, Sedlock, could be the core of our bullpen when we compete again.  
    • I don't agree with non-tendering Villar (and I don't think it will happen) but it's because I believe he has more value than $10M as a trade asset.  I have no problem non-tendering a guy you don't believe has value above the arb figure and replacing him with a 6 year minor league guy you believe might provide similar production. 
    • Having said all of this, I don't think we're full-on tanking. I am 100% in favor of keeping Villar and Mancini (I don't consider them to be investments, per se), and we could be far worse than we have been over the last 2 years if we really wanted to be. We're about as bad as you can be while being capable of getting 24-27 outs 162 times a year. 
    • You can be bad without tanking. Heck you can trade off expiring assets while being bad without tanking.  Yankees did it, worked out really well for them. Taking a team and tearing it down to a bare framework is not the only way to build a winner, even if you don't have unlimited payroll.  
    • I really don't consider there to be much difference between losing 94 and 104 games. Both teams are bad, and I'd imagine that at the start of a season that if Team A was projected for 104 losses and Team B was projected for 94 losses that Team B could easily finish with a worse record than Team A.  Also, the Cards and Giants are two of the best orgs in baseball. Hopefully we get to that level soon.
    • I'm sure they could.  If they had a desire to.  Neither side seems interested in that. BTW I'm not at all opposed to guys in AA and below needing to have jobs in the offseason.  I don't think someone in short season ball, for instance, should be making 32K just for playing rookie league ball.
    • I don't think your suggestion is quite the fix-all that you believe it to be. It doesn't eliminate this so-called incentive to lose.. you'd still have to be a bad team. It doesn't incentivize winning, imo. It would create a tank war between the last and next-to-last teams within most divisions for the last part of each season. It gives hope to many more teams of stealing that no. 1 overall pick.
