Last week I wrote the Ravens 2009 Season Obituary. I still believe the season is over. I love the Ravens, but I don’t see the world through purple colored glasses. To get to the playoffs, the Purple birds must win at least 6 of the remaining eight games if not seven. Ten wins may get you in, but I think 11 is the magic number this year.
Lets look at the remaining eight games left: Browns, Colts, Steelers (2), Packers, Lions, Raiders, and Bears. Getting to the promise land would be the same as taking a 1969 Volkswagen Bug to California going via the Rocky Mountains, and the Nevada Desert. It’s possible, but not very probable. Now I hope I am wrong. Believe me when I tell you, I WANT TO BE WRONG! And if I am, I will write a full retraction of last week’s obituary, (can you retract an obituary?) and gladly eat crow. Lets hope I am wrong. I’ve to be wrong in the past. GO RAVENS!
