Jan. 19, 2002 in many ways altered NFL history.
I was swayed after the win over the Jets in week 4 and I’m only further convinced after the comeback victory in Pittsburgh in week 9 that the Ravens are paving a road to the Super Bowl- and there’s no one in the AFC to stop them, except the Ravens themselves.
Injuries are part of life in the NFL. Every team has front-line players who are incapacitated and/or limited in their contributions and the list of wounded grows week to week in a long, brutal season. The Pittsburgh Steelers’ injury scenario is a bad one for this week, which means it’s good for the Ravens who play at Pittsburgh Sunday night.
In the aftermath of a 21-point comeback win over lowly Arizona, it’s fair to ask of the Ravens: how did they get in the position of trailing a bad team by 3 touchdowns on your home field?
Baltimore embraces the arrival of a new season for the Ravens and that energy was palpable in the city on Sunday. But with many things in life, there’s some bad that comes with the good. I’ve got my take on both.
Those of us who worked with Mike Flanagan and got to spend time with him are inclined to say what a privilege it was to know him. But, if you’re an Orioles fan and TV viewer, you knew him, too.
Orioles president Andy MacPhail declared the team had taken “a giant step backwards” when he fired Dave Trembley as manager just over a year ago.
Congratulations, Jake Arrieta, and thank you! Thank you for being credited with nine victories – a number that has baseball analysts talking about your victory total and asking the all-important question: What do you make of a guy with a 4.50 ERA who has as many victories as any of the top pitchers in the game? Answer: WINS for pitchers is one of the dumbest stats in baseball and it’s born out in the Arrieta case.
