You Tell Us: How Are You Feeling About the Ravens?

How will the Ravens fare in the back half of the season?

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?

I THINK THE RAVENS HAVE A LOT OF WORK TO DO, ESPECIALLY ON DEFENSE. I'M NOT SURE IF IT IS BECAUSE OF THE NEW DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR , BUT THEY SEEM TO LACK THE INTENSITY OF DEFENSES AGO, EVEN THOUGH THEY HAVE THE TALENT. AND THE OFFENSE IS LOOKING A LITTLE STIFFLED AT TIMES. SINCE WHEN DOES RAY RICE NEED A BREAK AFTER A COUPLE OF RUNS? HES HAS BEEN A WORKHORSE FOR THE PAST SEVERAL SEASONS. IF THEY DON'T PICK UP THE PIECES, THE SUPER BOWL IS GOING TO BE OUT OF THE QUESTION.

If Joe flacco "shows up" we can have a high scoring game . Both teams have the weapons to do it. Goes down to who can be more physical "without" killing themselves with penalties.Could be that the 49ers buy into all that hype as to how good their team is and make critical mistakes.Would love to see Ray Lewis come out a winner and "after the game " do his dance. LOL We can't afford to let the 49ers get going early in the game and feed off of that. The potential of the running will open up the throwing game. Which team can protect their quarterback better ? We will see.
