Can't They Just Both Lose?


Ravens vs. Browns. Baltimore vs. Cleveland. Man-horse vs. Clown? Could there BE a more fun matchup? That's like watching N'Sync vs. The Backstreet Boys. You hate them both. But yet, you kind of want to see who pulls whose hair harder. Or maybe that's just me...

Anyways, the "red-hot" Ravens play the "burgeoning" Browns this weekend in a matchup that could even things between the two teams within the AFC North. If the Browns win, they'll be 4-4 with division wins over Cincy and Balti. If the Ravens win, they'll be 5-3, with a scorching case of herpes (read: Terrell Suggs)...I mean division wins over the Browns and Bengals. If the Ravens LOSE, however, they become 4-4 and in a tie with the Gowns for second fiddle to Pittsburgh.

Domski has told me in an offline communication that he thinks the Browns are going to ride Shaun Rogers to victory! Or maybe it was that he wanted a Shaun Rogers ride. Either way, I'm not sure which team I'd rather see win. It's kind of like asking whether I'd like a Trojan War Helmet or a Rusty Trombone.

I guess for the sake of our standing within the division I want the Clowns to win. But rooting for the Frowns is going to be tough. Like most Steelers fans, I'd rather contract the avian flu than root for anything from Cleveland. But since this is an extenuating circumstance, I'll stomach it. Plus, I wouldn't mind watching Jamal Lewis plow Ray Lewis, Bart Scott, and/or Terrell Suggs. That or Derek Anderson light up the Ravens secondary like a Christmas Tree (mostly Ed Reed).

So, but the million dollar question is - Who do YOU think will win this one? Cleveland or Baltimore? Or N'Sync? Smart money's on JC Chasez.

Let's have at it.

Y'know, I don't actually see the Browns doing anything against the Ravens. They have a pretty good defense you know....

Ravens 23 Browns 10

the outcome of this game depends on which Derek Anderson shows up. Since he played well last week he's due to stink it up again.

I'll take the Ravens in a close one.

ravens can only produce offense out of trickery and running the ball. i think that cleveland will be able to stop the run and will be able to produce enough offense to get the "W."

I hate the Ravens more than I hate the Browns right now. By a good margin, too.

noah ~ I hear ya, and I agree. I'm just honestly hoping that the Browns can pull one out of their ass to keep the Ravens off of ours. I'm also hoping to never speak those words I just spoke ever again.

christy ~ I've always maintained (and you've probably heard it here many times) that there are only three constants in this life - death, taxes, and the Cleveland Browns sucking. So yeah, unfortch, I feel you.

domski ~ You make a good point. But you never know with the Ravens. Their Defense can produce points as well. Nahmeen?

vern ~ But tell us how you feel about the Dolphins?

I hope Joey Porter gets fucked in the ass until he starts screaming in sonar.
