How 'bout the Ravens?

OK, I must admit that I set out to watch the Ravens game on TV on Sunday with much fear and trembling. I was very afraid that we would be soundly defeated on Sunday. I have never been more happy to be wrong.

The team looked really good. I am officially on the Flacco bandwagon. He impressed me with his calm demeanor. It was good to not see "happy feet". He kept his head. True, he did not get sacked. Some fellow fans are saying that they want to see how he does when he is hit. Personally, I would be happy to see him so well protected by the offensive line, that he never gets hit. I realize this is a dream.

I am also a fan of Cam Cameron. It was refreshing to not be able to predict what we were about to see next. It was so good not to see a 2 yard completed pass when we were 3rd down and 8. The double reverse TD was a thing of beauty.

It was also good to see no stupid penalties. There were no false starts, something that used to be standard. The clock was properly managed.

The defense was near perfect and they should be very well rested for next week. I can't even imagine how good it is for them.

Todd Heap was the only disappointment. He dropped and fumbled all afternoon. He can't seem to stay healthy.

The running backs will wear their opponents out.

I am looking forward to seeing more from the wide receivers.

Football is back in Baltimore, hon.

Should be a good season, in spite of Flacco's growing pains. He's better than what you've had for the past few years.

That reverse was a thing of beauty, though it was inches away from disaster (in the form of a 13 yard loss).

Diva - you don't know the half of it...I am a HUGE female Ravens fan

Joe - After just one game it is safe to say that Flacco is better, I respect McNair but he was past his prime. I still feel sorry for Boller because he is just a nice guy who can't seem to put it all together. I don't expect to see that reverse again anytime soon, but what a refreshing change. I can't wait to go to a game.
