2009 Season Recap: Part 2

A ficticious review of the season rolls on, but just in case you want thoughts on actual events, check out my real game recap right here: http://wbal.com/apps/news/templates/ravens.aspx?articleid=35658&zoneid=5

As for the continued ridiculousness, please remember  that attempts at humor do no neccesarily reflect the opinions of my bosses, family, or Chris Dachille.

Week 5:  How in the name of Tila Tequila did the Ravens go to New England and beat the Patriots, then come home and lost to the Ochocinos???  Probably after watching HBO’s Hard Knocks, and seeing how the Bengals charged their players for televisions in their rooms at training camp, the Ravens figured there’s no way Cincy could ever give exceptional effort for owner Mike Brown.  Somehow, they overcame that and did at M&T Bank Stadium what they did in 2004, pull the upset.  I think Flacco got a little out of whack after all the Gisele texts, witness his two interceptions and Carson Palmer reminded us he’s still pretty good.  Never though imagined 400 yards good in Baltimore.  John Harbaugh, whom above all wants consistent effort, accused writers and reporters in post game press conference of not wanting to win enough.  Losing to the 2-3 Bengals 34-25 , I’d go off too.  And he’s right, Peter Schmuck doesn’t want to win enough.

Week 6:   You could see this one coming all the way from Duluth.  No Adrian Peterson.  No Chester Taylor (odd that they chose to parasail together and couldn’t predict the snapping of the safety harness.)  Just Brett Favre.  More amazing though than Favre throwing the ball 45 times with that robotic arm, that he lasted long enough in the game to throw it 45 times.  The Ravens set a record for blitzes at 927 (unofficial) and sacks 124 (official).  All the frustration of losing at home to the Bengals, and of falling two games back of Pittsburgh erupted like Earl Weaver circa 1982.  The 37-0 victory once again put the Ravens into Super Bowl talk and nearly caused tampering charges from the Bills as they tried to contact Greg Mattison about replacing Dick Jauron.
