They’re the Baltimore team…Nope, not the Colts; they moved to Indy…They’re the NEW Baltimore team…Except, that they were originally the Cleveland Browns…Who moved to Baltimore to become the Ravens…But then there’s the NEW Browns…Fuck it.
waitaminnit… You mean someone conned Baltimore into paying for the Browns (the BROWNS?!) to relocate there… and didn’t even get the NAME? And someone else conned Cleveland into springing for more “Browns”?
Man… And I thought the Rams put a good one over on St. Louis.
I read this blog almost every day and just found out you’re a Colts fan. That’s a major plus one in my book, considering up until they moved it back I was a permanent fixture at training camp in Terre Haute during the summers. So thank you Radley Balko, for continuing to be a bastion of sanity in this cold, cruel world.
I’m a Jets fan so I hate the Giants, Ravens and Patriots. I hope the 49ers destroy the Giants on Sunday but if the Pats are in the Super Bowl they’re going to win.

Silentrat… you must have started reading more recently. About 3-4 years ago Radley used to be a lot more vocal about his allegiance. Especially during the height of the Pats-Colts rivalry. Which I want the Colts back so it can be re-ignited.

Good for you Cynical. At least you aren’t one of those douche-bag fans that says “I’m a fan of the Giants and Jets” or “I am a fan of the Yankees and Mets”. What posers!!

I’ve been a Niners fan since the days, before Walsh, Montana, etc when you could drive up to Candlestick and buy a ticket for a good seat 5 minutes before kickoff. Enjoyed the good years, suffered through the post Young horribles, and am pleasantly surprised by Harbaugh/Smith. Go Niners!
Balto will have their hands full but NE’s defense is really suspect. If Ravens can hold the ball and keep Brady off the field (ala NYG-GB game), it could be a grind, which favors the Ravens. NE’s not built for grinding it out.
It’s unfortunate you’re an Irsay fan. That’s the only team I root for injury, having been born and raised a Colts fan.
The Pats will be tough, but the Ravens can win in Foxboro. They did it in ’09, and they match up as well as anybody against the Pats. They have the depth in the secondary to play the press coverage the Steelers did to beat the Pats earlier this year.
Here’s hoping for ugly weather in Foxboro next Sunday! I’d love to see a freezing cold rain.
@27 – I wouldn’t hang my hat on that game in ’09 just yet. Brady still wasn’t himself in ’09, and the Pats were without Welker, and they hadn’t drafted Gronkowski and Hernandez yet (who are 2 of the 5 best TEs in the league, if you ask me). This is a much more explosive team than the one you saw in ’09 (on offense, at least). Yes, the Pat’s D is terrible, though.
Really? Hoosiers hate the Patriots that much? Surely I’m not the only person from here who grew up rooting for the Boston sports teams because of the Larry Bird connection? Of course, I live on the border with Kentucky, which means that nobody here talks about anything except UofL vs. UK basketball.

I’d think Colts fans still have warm feelings for Harbaugh?
The Patriots have to get by Baltimore which will not be easy for them. The Giants would be extremely difficult for them to beat. I grew up in New England when the Patriots were brand new and most were still NY Giants fans; I like both teams but I think NY will win if they make it to the SB.
