  • You can always speculate as a writer of you OWN opinion, but it would be best to have accurate stats. Anyone thinking Baltimore can make a great run next season, needs to think again. Losing Ray Lewis will not have any impact on a great team. Baltimore had Todd Heap a great reciever and let him go and let some other greats go, but went on the win the Super Bowl. No one and I mean no one knows who they will get in the draft picks, but remember this. Last year Baltimore was #37 pick and got Pierce. Super player. You can always post your opinion, but that is all it is. Next season will tell, I would say, around the middle of October. After all, you are just an author in here and want to be able to say, "I told you so."
