Game Day and the fog has lifted

A dreary, drizzly morning gives way to balmy sunshine at M&T Bank Stadium.  Maybe not a legitimate metaphor for the Ravens, but it lately it seems awfully sunny in Baltimore. 

As they ready for the Browns they sit at 2-0 atop the AFC North despite not having neared their best football.  They offered enough mistakes in weeks one and two to make John Harbaugh likely consider serious self medication.  How he stomached his defense giving up 421 total passing yards last week I’ll never know. 

But the beauty of this team thus far comes in how it handles adversity.  Joe Cool 2.0 refuses to succumb to panic and when called upon in dire need, Ray Lewis made up for 59 minutes of mistakes.

Watching the Browns warm up on the field I almost feel bad for them.  They play for a joyless coach and know that even at their best, it would take the Ravens self imploding to get a win.  A trip to the land of 3-0 looks certain for Baltimore, but if I’m wrong, my word count at Gilbert’s Arena will greatly top 180.
