Randy Hymes or Clarence Moore?
Remember those like 3 weeks at the end of the 2004 season when Kyle Boller-to-Clarence Moore was a thing?

Those were the days...


Fun fact: our leading receiver in 2004 was Travis Taylor, who had 421 yards and 0 touchdowns.




I was picking up wings a couple of weeks ago and a woman working in the kitchen was wearing a Travis Taylor jersey. I was a little confused at first, but I guess if you want to show Ravens pride, but don't want to get sauce/grease/etc. on a nice jersey, then it makes sense.

Don't think it's come up but I'm loving this Sizzle/Patriots crap. Stomp them in the Championship and still talk smack about them.

I mean, not the greatest idea ever because those are "The Expendables", and in no way are most of those guys expendable... Laughing

I'm excited to see what happens. Hopefully its not the usual brown nosing of New York, Boston, LA that ESPN does.

True that. I was thinking of doing one of people who might get cut but a crew headed by some like Sean Considine would be a snooze fest. lol.

Anyone remember the flea flicker from Kyle Boller to Randy Hymes on MNF? Never forgot that play. lol Probably cause it was the only big play of the season.

Against the Chiefs right? Remember a flea flicker. No idea who the players were.

I forgot Randy Hymes existed. Unfortunately I remember Boller very well.

Wonder if ESPN leadership will snarkily refer to it as the Speed channel similar to calling NBC Sports OLN.

Maybe it's just me, but I happen to think I'm pretty reasonable in thinking that our 2012 Ravens team matches up pretty darn well with our 2000 squad... and would actually win.

Sure we aren't world beaters, but I think this team has been pretty underrated as a squad. Honestly, this is one of the reasons why I wish we would've blown out the 49ers because if that game ends how it started, suddenly that Denver game is the only close game on the resume and we have 3 blowouts to our record. So besides the obvious heart advantages of a blowout, it validates this team as being legit.

I think what that lightout and the comeback that followed, effected this team's legacy so much in terms of how good they actually are when they're rolling. This team has won and it's still not getting it's just due. Between having no chance against the 2000 Ravens (which I happen to think we matchup very well against and would win) and threads like the one where we were listed as one of the worst Super Bowl winners... I call bull. This team, when at it's best, was an extremely dangerous team. They weren't always healthy or motivated, but they were a team that survived long enough to turn it up a notch.

If not for that dumb stadium, this team would truly be allowed to be fully appreciated for what it could bring to the table when at it's best.

Now sure the 2000 team had a level of dominance that this team can't match, but matchups are seldom about simply roster talent, it's also about matchups and scheme. If both teams play tomorrow, with the current NFL structure as the rules, we matchup well with that team in virtually every area.

I see a game similar to last year's win over the Texans. I just don't think this team gets its just due for what they were able to accomplish and what they bring to the table. It's so annoying.

Like your enthusiasm, but our defense is killing somebody on this roster. Of course not the Greatest QB of All-Time, Joe Flacco. You think our guys couldn't get off the press coverage now. lol!

If we're playing then... I think we lose. But playing by the current rules... I like our chances.

I forgot Randy Hymes existed. Unfortunately I remember Boller very well.

Don't hate, he beat the 18-1 Patriots.
Thanks again, Rex.

Speaking of which, I wonder what people's reactions would've been if after that game you made the prediction that the Ravens were gonna win their next Super Bowl before New England.
