Wednesday Morning’s Crabs and Beer

April 15, 2009 | Glenn Clark

Stop whining about 10 teams getting more primetime games than the Ravens. The Ravens DON’T WANT primetime games. In fact, they’re probably not thrilled about having 3. The players don’t like them, the staff doesn’t like them, and they tend to struggle in them. In a perfect world, the Ravens would play 16 games at 1pm.

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