And I say probably because the depths on my sanity have only been partially tested by Snyder.
Most Ravens fans are A-holes when it comes to the Skins, they love to watch the Skins struggle. Not really a whole lot of love in Baltimore for DC at all. I was living up in MD for the Ravens first season and actually went to the first game against the Raiders. It was a nice novelty, but because of their fans I usually root for them to lose.

It's ok to like players from other teams, but just like liking your buddies GF, it's probably better to keep those feelings to yourself.

I'm wavering a little in my hatred, if fact, I think I've become a bit of a fan. The guy is just amazing. Perhaps, the greatest football player of this generation. I could go on and on about his individual performance which I won't. I do want to mention his leadership. What other player on any team means so much to their team. Yes, you could mention some QB's like Manning, Brady, maybe Brees as of late. What defensive players?

It seems as if he's turned his life around as well. I don't follow him too closely but it seems as if that's the case.

Ray Lewis. No matter the coach. No matter what players come or go there's one constant....Ray Lewis. Year in and year out if he's playing, they are unbelievable. They gave up some points yesterday but there's no shame in giving it up to Brady and co. The guy has been playing for a long time now, and is there any let up? No. Damn he's good and damn they are a good team.

The Raven's in general...i kind of respect them and there organization. I hate to admit it. It took awhile, but i think they've got an offense now and that's scary. FA's leave and they plug in the next guy. Offseason acquisitions? I can't remember any. Note to Dan Snyder, look at what the Ravens are doing. Do something similar. Look at their organization and look at who's doing what. Talk to some folks. Same thing w/ the NYGiants, Steelers, the Pats...do what they do.

Anyways, are you guys a fan of Ray Lewis? Is he the greatest player of this generation?

I especially liked his postgame comments yesterday.

They've been giving up points to everyone this year, including the Chiefs. But they're Offense is one of the best in the league and their Defense is still pretty good, just not dominant like in years past.

And you're right about their Defense being able to rotate guys in and out without missing a step. He's a big part of it. Imagine if Carlos Rodgers played on that Defense. Ray would have fixed those brick hands in a hurry. He wouldn't stand for that shit. INTs are points to that Defense.

But for the record, I hate the Purple Browns and their johnny come lately fans with a passion, but I can't help but respect the way they run their organization.

I'm with you. For the most part, their fans are buttholes. Half of them didn't even know there was a team in town until they won the Super Bowl and the other half thought the Colts never left. Friggin one-horse town.

Some of my favorite players to watch over the past 15 years (Lewis, Manning, Montana, Rice, R. Moss, E. Reed, Fitzgerald, Lott, L. Tomlinson, B. Sanders) have been on other teams. I really don't enjoy watching players in the division but I am an unapologetic Deion fan. Say what you want, he was the most entertaining player in the game.

I got to say I love Justin Tuck's game...that man is a beast.

gotta give credit where it is due. ravens organization top to bottom seems top notch.

go skins!!
You mean they don't sign the most expensive free agent every year and have all their money tied up in skill position players? Is that even legal?

S**t happens if you let it. If he's your buddy...you don't let it. Friendship is a more valuable commodity than a roll in the hay. A hard lesson but one worth learning.

Re: Can I Be a Skins Fan and a Ray Lewis Fan?

Ray Ray is a baller no doubt. Definitely first ballot HOF. Nothing wrong with liking players on other teams. I love watching guys like Peyton, Favre, Tomlinson, Peterson, etc. Heck I even own jerseys of some of these guys.

This is definitely true. Ravens fans have about as much class as Philly fans. It sucks going to that stadium...they're just a bunch of assholes, no real way around it.

Also, I recognize that there is a "loud minority" but trust me, I've never had a worse experience than being there for the Sunday Night game last year.

On topic: Ray Lewis is a beast, I respect the way he plays, but his always overly intense voice is really annoying.
