The Friday Football Frenzy …..

October 15, 2010 |

You’ve circled this Ravens game on the schedule, right? For months, we’ve known the Ravens would be returning to Foxboro’s Gillette Stadium for the 3rd time in less than 13 months.

John Harbaugh’s team should feel pretty comfortable with the surroundings outside Boston, huh? A “home away from home” feel? I doubt that …. but, the Ravens have averaged nearly a touchdown, per quarter, in the last 2 contests, in New England.

Friendly confines?

Not exactly, but Joe Flacco, Ray Rice and this offensive attack have found some cracks, crevices and virtual open thoroughfares in the Patriots defense. With additions like Anquan Boldin, T.J. Houshmandzadeh and Ed Dickson, it seems logical to assume the pickins’ might be even more plentiful.

Not so fast …..

The mad scientist has been given two weeks to prepare for the improved and enhanced Baltimore Ravens offense …..

Surely, Bill Belichick will have something in store to stop the PURPLE PASSING game !!!! Then again, I’m not so sure of it. The Patriots have struggled in their secondary and points have not been a difficult thing for opponents to find.

We shall see on Sunday, but we’re talking about it today.


So, sit back and enjoy four hours of non-stop pigskin predicting and prognosticating. I’ll be joined by Nestor, as always. And, today, we’re welcoming some pretty cool guests, including Howard Balzer, Michael Rosenberg, Andy Hart and Peter King …..

You’re invited to contribute, by calling (410) 481-1570. Or, you can email me:

It all starts at 2pm. And, once again, we can be thankful for those who really make the Friday Football Frenzy possible …..
