vmax Posted November 6, 2012 Share Posted November 6, 2012 (edited) We're halfway through the season so is the glass half empty or half full? Before I start let me tell you: I'm one confused Ravens fan. I read this and thought "The truth hurts.... You want to know why few people trust Baltimore at 6-2? Look what happened Sunday: It went 30 minutes and seven consecutive series in Cleveland without gaining a first down ... and defense, not offense, is supposed to be the Ravens' problem.http://www.cbssports...e-with-luck-rg3 but bullshit kills". I'm not calling 6-2 bullshit, because getting a win in the NFL is a very difficult task. The Ravens have some quality wins over the Bengals, Patriots and Cowboys. They do have the second best record in the AFC halfway through the season. Yet....These 2012 Ravens do not have the feel of a strong, playoff caliber 6-2 record.The feel of an "on the rise" 6-2 record. It feels like a "hanging on" 6-2 record or an "on the ropes" 6-2 record. It's great to be 6-2 considering all the injuries and poor performances by the Ravens. I'll take it because that means the season is not over yet. They can get better. They are in position. A lot of teams are not "in position". The Ravens have to get better now...time has run out.... because look at the second half schedule...it's Showtime.... Raiders....Palmer is a shell of his former self but he still might have the Ravens number.The Steelers twice with the Chargers in between? That 3 game stretch will show us if this 2012 Ravens team are contenders or pretenders. It could sink the season.Then comes the Indigenous Persons. Fortunately, the Ravens get them in DC where Shannyrat is 5-15.Then 2 games against the Manning Brothers. Somehow I don't think Eli will suck like he did against the Steelers. That's his 1 bad game for the year. Peyton's on fire.Close out with the Bengals. Can this team even go .500 through that? Do that and they are 10-6. I thought they improved against the Browns....but it was the Browns so who knows? I want to believe in Harbaugh and this coaching staff. The last 4 years is proof that they know how to build winning teams. Playoff teams. This is their biggest challenge. I do believe in the ton of talent this team has. It is still loaded. On paper they have enough talent to piece together a very good team. This is a real head scratcher for me. Half full? Or half empty?
