Monday Morning’s Crabs and Beer

October 20, 2008 | Glenn Clark

It was GREAT to see the Ravens get the win in Miami yesterday. But it doesn’t make them a playoff team. It DOES however convince me that they won’t go 4-12; which I will admit I was concerned about again.

And John Harbaugh is still not doing much for me. Some people already seem to know what happened with Chris McAlister in Miami; and the truth WILL come out. Just saying that there was an “in house disciplinary action” would have been enough. Don’t get too cute.

The biggest difference on the field yesterday was clearly Willis McGahee; who is this team’s greatest difference maker. If he can be explosive; things could open up for Joe Flacco.

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