Re: NFL Thread: Week 2 - Peyton is gonna Manning
It's real funny you think I'm gloating. The only Raven statistic I even mentioned was our points in comparison to the rest of the division, which I brought up because it's WEIRD not to "gloat".
The Ravens are a damn good football team and have a significant shot at making the Super Bowl. We do have an extremely difficult schedule ahead of us, which while I am not afraid of, I am not going to dismiss.
We had a really, really good opener. It's exciting as a Ravens fan. I'm not sitting here saying we're the best team in the league, only that people should have rated us higher than the Pats based off of -last week- and -last week- only, which the rankings go by. We scored more points than the Pats, were better in almost every statistical category, and played against a higher ranked opponent.
The Pats are a damn good football team and I will never say otherwise (until they start to suck, whenever that happens).
Niners deserve to be the #1 ranked team right now. They had the toughest opener and defeated the Packers soundly at Lambeau, something they haven't done in a long long time.
