    On fantab, FANTAB, the Raven's fans are extremely confident for fans of a team that did not win its division.

    I wouldn't be surprised if he retired next offseason regardless. He will be 37 next May, so unless the team is really stocked for a championship run, there's a good probability he retires in one of the next two offseasons. I don't see him running his body into the ground.

    I think it was Barry Sanders who said 'it's a young man's game.' I think that resonates with the older players, Lewis included.

    No SB for them, but with that schedule it's completely plausible that they get the 1 seed. Especially if the Steelers have another post-Super Bowl slump.

    I wonder if they'll run the ball more this season given their offensive composition. Ray Rice and Ricky Williams are a formidable 1-2 punch.

    if Ray Lewis played his whole career for the patriots you wouldn't care how many guys he stabbed.

    Hes a warrior and hes Dedicated, hes on a rival team but i dont care, i respect greatness. i respect Peyton Manning for the same reason.

    Hey if Rex Grossman can say that Washington has a good chance of "winning" the division this season, anythings possible! ;)

    Flacco might step it up this season. He's better than Sanchez IMO

    Joe Flacco has won 4 more playoff games than Tom Brady since entering the league in 2008......

    Have the Ravens added anyone of note besides Ricky Williams? They may have, I just haven't really heard of anyone.

    If he's their only big addition, I just can't see them not taking a step back this year. That defense is just getting older.

    I respect Ray Lewis's passion for the game.

    and maybe it'd be better to wish a 4-12 season for them and have Ray think they were so far from being competitve again that retirement would be a better option.

    I bet it feels good to be able to rely on one of the NFL's best defenses too..;)

    I like Ray Lewis. Not a big fan of T Sizzle though.

    Since Ray believes their are 2 seperate and distinct teams in Baltimore - the Ravens D and the Ravens offense - is he talking about both of them winning the title?

    Apparently when you are a Raven, the Division game is the Super Bowl.

    There is only one Raven that is preapproved to root for and that is Ed Reed. Bill Belichick gave his stamp of approval, so all of Patriots' Nation can cheer for Ed Reed. With all the trash talk that Ray Lewis and Terrell Suggs have talked about the Patriots, it will never be ok to root for the Ravens. I can not wait to see the Patriots beat the Ravens the next time they play.

    He'd be pretending he's from Nova Scotia. He'd really be from New Brunswick, Labrador or Newfoundland. I don't think theres any Ravens fans in Nova.........right Nova?
