Well, I have friends who live in the Baltimore area, and what some of you described in regards to Ravens fans is absolutely true. There is one friend who says that the only Super Bowl that counts for the Redskins is the '91 Super Bowl. his reasoning was that the Redskins played in strike shortened years, and if the those teams had played a full 16 game schedule, they would not have went to the Super Bowl and yadda yadda yadda. I told him that was the standard for being a true Super Bowl Champion, then all of the teams that had won the Super Bowl and earlier NFL Championships prior to the season going to 16 games should also be stripped of their Championship titles from those seasons.

He didn't have anything else to say about that afterward, but he did call Jack Kent Cooke a POS for trying his best to block the Browns from moving into Baltimore, since of course it would have eaten into the Redskins market. I told him any owner would have done the same thing.

But anyways, great guys otherwise, but I DO sense some sort of arrogance among them being Ravens fans. Even now, they feel there is no doubt the Ravens will beat the Redskins soundly, because they buy into the same old song dance about Daniel Snyder, and etc...

So, I despise the Baltimore Ravens. Mostly because of their fans who are turn coats and fair weather fans. I guarantee if the Ravens start to go down the toilet bowl and the 'skins start rising up to the top, you'll see them jump ship again.

With all of that said, IF the 'skins are to drop one of the last four games remaining, I would MUCH rather it be against either the Ravens or the Browns. Because, I DO have a feeling the Giants are going to end at 9-7 again, and if the 'skins go 3-1, they will win the division. Of course, you can't count on the Giants dropping two games, and ultimately I feel the 'skins need to win out, but in terms of momentum, it's best of the 'skins to drop their one game against the Ravens and finish strong beating the Browns, Eagles, and Cowboys.

It's going to be a tough game and I still believe if the 'skins win this weekend, they're finishing 10-6, winning the division, and making the playoffs.
All true and exactly what I experience. The team the Ravens I like the fan base is just plain awful.

If we beat them, it'll be, "Well we had injuries, blah blah blah." Seems so rare when anyone gives a team credit for just executing. It's always the other team had an off day.

Re: Ravens V Redskins - Beltway Brawl or Maryland Massacre?

By the numbers:

Baltimore Offense:

Yards per game - 19th (343.2 ypg)
Points per game- 9th (25.5 ppg)



Redskins Offense:

Yards per game - 7th (383.7 ypg)
Points per game- 8th (26 ppg)



Baltimore Defense:

Yards per game allowed - 25th (372.2 ypg)
Points per game allowed - 8th (20.2 ppg)

Redskins Defense:

Yards per game allowed - 29th (390.5 ypg)
Points per game allowed - 23rd (25.1 ppg)



The two teams are pretty close to being even, but the one area that is huge between us and the Ravens is their points allowed per game. They are a stingy defense that really doesn't give up points easily. Which means we have to capitalize on the red zone trips. Moving the ball up and down the field isn't going to do jack shit for us. You don't win games with the most amount of yards, you win it by points. Stating the obvious but still.

Yeah. I'm liking that too. Try to keep any big plays to a minimum..get some pressure on Flacco..and hold them to FG's as much as possible. Game over...Redskins win.

Stumbled upon this stat: Much-maligned #Redskins defense is 7th in the NFL with 64 QB hits. The Ravens have registered just 49.

That seems..inaccurate. Maybe that stat needs some explaining.

Nonsense, sir! It's from Twitter, it doesn't need to be verified.

That's backwards. Offense has given up 64 QB hits. Ravens just 49

I don't think its all based off RGIII it will happen if the Skins start to win more no matter who is at QB. With that said I think RGII has another big game and we pull this one off.

The Ravens really aren't that great. Ray Rice carries that offense, in my opinion because Flacco is really hit or miss.

This is really interesting. The Ravens score more points than their yards/game would suggest, and give up fewer than the yards against them/game would suggest. This suggests that they are good at closing the deal on offense and bend but don't break on defense. One might characterize our team in the recent win streak in about the same fashion.

It seems to me that these teams are pretty evenly matched -- two strong, smash mouth RBs, we have a better QB, but they have a better defense. To me, this may come down to whose O-line holds up best -- protect RGIII and carve some holes for Morris, and we can control the ball and do well. Create some pressure on Flacco (which, let's face it, hasn't been our strong suit) and keep Rice from taking over -- in other words, beat up their O-line -- and we ought to win. I don't think they have skills players on offense to make up for shoddy O-line play. Good WRs, but not dominant ones. A very good back, but his numbers lag behind AM1's and a number of other backs in the league. And a QB who is hot and cold.

I am thinking Skins 23, Ravens 20.

Re: Ravens V Redskins - Beltway Brawl or Maryland Massacre?

So I know teams say that they need to hit the QB, but the Ravens think (not without justification -- see the Skins/Bengals and Skins/Falcons games) that they have to hit RGIII to win. Bernard Pollard: Ravens have to hit Robert Griffin III - NFL.com

If I were Shanahan, I might make sure that at the outset of the game to remind the officials to look for cheap, late stuff. It's going to happen, but if the officials clamp down on it early enough, they may prevent stuff from getting out of hand.

And we ought to bubble wrap RGIII.
