    So come this Thursday night, one of these gangs, will finish the first week of the season 0-1… Just wondering who is everyone here will be rooting for….

    The dirty birds who beat us in the AFCCG, or the 4-legged crippled horses, led by TFB’s nemesis – Darth Forehead? :D

    Can't root for the Manning, especially Seyton Manning, not rooting for the ravens either, but I'd prefer that they win.

    give them sticks.


    Declare the team with the last man standing the winner.

    Seriously.

    I want the ratbirds to win. Then see the media squirm with a manning loss.

    Personally, I’ll have to go with the lesser of the two evils, and root for Baltimore…. I just can’t stand the Broncos’, their QB, and the media’s infatuations with them ever since Mr. Forehead went to play there.

    I'd love to see a tie (best case scenario), but I expect the Broncos to win.

    I'm not rooting for either but it would be nice for DEN to fall in week 1. I can see it happening, too, as I think the BAL defense will surprise some this year even with the personnel they lost.

    An ugly tie would suit me. The games last so long and they beat each other up so bad that they both lose the next week.

    Ties are fun. It also means that both teams have to slog through 5 quarters of football and hopefully beat each other up.

    I am certainly not rooting for either team to win, but I guess I will cheer for any Denver failure to a greater extent...

    Just because Baltimore is in a much tougher division and thus there are more legit opportunities for us to gain games on them relative to Denver in the weaker AFC West

    and Manning is more of a turd than Flacco

    Would like to see Baltimore win but I can only see Denver smoking them.

    A lot of new pieces in the Baltimore defense, how will communication on the back end be now Reed and Pollard are gone? How will the new owner of the green dot handle the Chess game with Manning?

    How many yards will Dig give up to the Broncos TEs?

    Then on Offense; no Pitta, (potentially) Dickson or Boldin so how will the "chuck & pray" offense work now Smith is going to be double covered on pretty much every down?

    On the flip side, Denver have no Miller & Dumervil, if Bailey plays he isn't going to be in game shape and he's another year older. Aren't they also down to the #3 C too?

    Sorry, but even if Denver wins, I don't see a blow out in any shape or form. From what I've seen in preseason, no one should sleep on the Ravens.

    I don't really have an issue with Peyton Manning, except that people think he's better than Brady (not his fault). On the other hand, I ******* hate the Ravens.

    Go Denver.

    I voted for the tie but upon reflection Satan Manning is a decent guy and HOF QB and the Donks have a WR I like so I'm pulling for Denvah. I hate the Ratbirds to a man.

    Hopefully Manning uses every last bit if arm strength he has to piledrive the ratbirds.

    Nothing would please me more than seeing his wobbly spirals somehow being caught for TDs over and over again while Flacco throws INT after INT as his fans realize they extended a glorified Rex Grossman.

    I don't care if it's Week 1, I'm always thinking of HFA for the playoffs. Go Baltimore. Now, I must go puke.

    I dislike BALT more, but as a patriot fan, I must root against the team that we may be contending with for a bye and home field advantage.

    I feel like throwing up for saying this but I hope the Ravens win nothing better then seeing this after a Manning lose and all the Denver hype
