The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly


The Baltimore Ravens have had quite a season in 2010.  Here is a recollection of the good, the bad, and the ugly.

 

The Good: A franchise-record 3rd post-season appearance. 

John Harbaugh has taken the Ravens to new heights.  The Ravens tied the Baltimore Colts for consecutive playoff appearances ('75, '76, '77) and, hopefully, will break that record next year.

The Bad: The arrest of Sergio Kindle for DUI.

The Ravens' 1st pick of the 2010 draft has had a dismal year.  Not only has he missed his rookie season due to a concussion caused by a tumble down two flights of stairs, but he made the news late in the season for being arrested for drunk driving.  I'm not saying we should release Kindle, but I do think that the Ravens had better keep an eye on him this offseason.  He must learn to act like a Raven.

The Ugly: The heart-breaking loss to Pittsburgh on Sunday night.

Todd Heap was knocked out of the game early in the 1st quarter, leaving rookie TE's Ed Dickson and Dennis Pitta to fill his enormous shoes.  The Ravens' defense gave Pittsburgh a little payback by making Big Ben bleed.  Still, the Ravens were unable to pull off a victory, helping the Steelers clinch the AFC North.  I wonder how many middle-aged Ravens fans heard "Build Me Up Buttercup" by The Foundations in the background after that game.

 

To be fair, the Ravens have had a tremendous season, although most of their games were more to the tune of The BeeGees' "Stayin' Alive" than to the Rolling Stones' "You Can't Catch Me".  We'll find out how our Ravens do in the playoffs.  Look out, Kansas City.  You better not shout, and I'm telling you why: The Ravens are coming to town!
