Monday Morning’s Crabs and Beer

December 01, 2008 | Glenn Clark

There was absolutely nothing to complain about in yesterday’s win. Could the Ravens have scored TD’s earlier in the game? Maybe; but they scored plenty during the game; so it didn’t matter.

The Ravens can’t get complacent or overconfident; but they are certainly capable of beating the Redskins next week, and should beat them fairly handily.

As far as the Frank Walker saga is concerned; John Harbaugh can use him. Hopefully the relationship will repair this week. Harbaugh is in a better place at 8-4 to remind players of who the Head Coach is.

Let’s see what everyone else has to say……
