Sad to say it's at least a change to the endless OC, DC or HC and who's interviewing and who got hired.

Call it whatever you want. Until they win a few more than they lose, they're a crappy team playing in the Toilet Bowl.

Wait? It's no longer "The Jake"? If you change the name of the stadium when your team is not playing any games of import, does anyone notice?

Actually it stands for manufacturers and Traders. I've been to quite a few Ravens games, never any problems. Nothing compares to SF, LA and NY.

I think he meant your players! Especially your middle linebacker who is now using God to deflect the fact he should be in prison right now.

Lewis destroyed evidence and gave bogus information to the police. Ask Welker's wife, according to her I think he has six kids with 4 wives. Great role model. No wonder he is crying all of the time and has to talk about God every time a microphone is within 10 feet.
