I hate to judge without more information, but… this looks bad. Really, really bad.
After falling to Green Bay at home 19-17, the defending Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens sit at just 3-3. When looking for a reason as to why they’ve struggled it’s pretty easy to point the finger squarely at their offense. Any Fantasy owner of Ray Rice will be the first to tell you it’s their lack of a run game.
When you sit down at your computer, or with your phone, or whatever device you use to browse the Internet, here’s something to remember: We see you. Whether you’re being a dick to Ray Rice or a racist dick to Miss America, it doesn’t go unnoticed.
Victory parades, as we discussed yesterday, are events when players can do pretty much whatever they want – for example, sing or dance badly. Still, some caution must be exercised… as Ray Rice can now attest.
With 1:59 to go in the 4th quarter and down 3, the Ravens faced a 4th and 29 at midfield. And as Joe Flacco bounced in the pocket, finally dumping it off the Ray Rice at the line of scrimmage, all hope seemed lost. But then something interesting happened: Rice ran past pretty much the entire Chargers defense for a game-saving first down in one of the more remarkable plays of the year. (He also got quite a helpful spot from the refs.) The game would go into overtime, the Ravens would win 16-13, and Chargers fans would be left STMFH.
From Houston’s 43-13 shellacking of Baltimore. The athletically freakish defensive lineman — check out his combine stats — got into it a bit with everyone’s favorite undersized running back, Ray Rice. Rice, for the record, stands at a relatively diminutive (for a football player) 5’8″ – albeit 5’8″ of brick-solid muscle mass. So it was definitely a truck stop burrito Watt was talking about.

Not much stopped the Ravens last night. They beat the Bengals 44-13, making their division foes look rather unlike the playoff team they were a year ago. Thy dominated on both sides of the ball. One person, though, got the better of them.
We know NFL players, and professional athletes as a whole, enjoy poking fun at each other. Really, they’re just big fraternities of rich, athletic men that aren’t above pulling some pranks on one another. Especially if they have short teammates.
Ray Rice became the second Pro-Bowl running back to ink a long term deal today, re-upping with the Ravens for five years. The details, after the jump.
