Ravens lay an egg!

In the modern era, only 1 NFL team has managed to go win-less (unless you count the 1982 Colts which went 0-8-1 in the strike year) & that was the 1976 expansion Tampa BayBucs. As a matter of fact, they nearly went win-less in their 1st 2 seasons, losing all 14 in 1976 & thier first 12 in 1977. (They went on to beat the Saints & Cards in successive weeks) Since the advent of the 16 game schedule in 1978, no team has gone win-less. A few teams have come close, most recent the 2001 lions. They lost their 1st 12, before beating the Vikings. However, I thought, this would be the year that 0-16 would happen, and low & behold, guess who was in the running? The Dolphins! The only Franchise in the modern era to go undefeated, could have also had the distinction of being the only franchise to go 0-16.

But, NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, the crash & burn Ravens , blew it! In overtime no less. They lined up to kick the game winner & Stover missed. Next play, touchdown Miami! Way to go B-More! Way to F*ck things up for the rest of us. Well, maybe next year, the Jets can do the impossible. In the meantime, all we can do is hope. Oh, and one last note B-More, just go ahead & clip Billick now. It is the least you can do at this point. Thanks for nothing.
