Do we gather here on Monday morning to bury Cam Cameron, or to praise him?
The Ravens head into this Sunday's game against Oakland after an ugly, ugly win at Cleveland that it seemed—at some points—Joe Flacco tried valiantly for two quarters to give away.
Their 6-2 record is good for second-best in the AFC (behind Houston), and still ahead of Pittsburgh in the AFC North.
A win's a win, as coach John Harbaugh told ESPN this week: "Look around the league; it's a tough league. Every team has great players. This is not college football. There are no homecoming opponents. This is the NFL. There is not going to be a lot of pretty. There is really not."
But the way this team struggled against the lowly Browns—six straight three-and-outs, nearly half the game without a first down—with a defense now ranked near the bottom of the league, and an active roster currently without Ray Lewis or Lardarius Webb in it.... I just don't know.
One of the Twitter users I follow (I can't recall who) referred to the Ravens after the Browns game as the worst 6-2 team in NFL history. You tell us: Where do you stand on this Ravens team, eight games in?
By the way... I snapped this picture a few weeks back at Eastern Boulevard and Margaret Avenue. I'm curious: how long has the logo been painted down there?
