2-0*

It amazes me that when we don’t see consistent football for weeks, people start to think that mediocre games come across as epic tilts. The general consensus of my Facebook friend this morning reads like Hemmingway novel on how last night’s Ravens game “looked more like a regular season game than a preseason game.”

 

Really?

 

Are you sure?

 

If it actually were a preseason game, I doubt that Erik Ainge, the New York Jets third-string quarterback, would be on the field late in the game.

 

Or that the Jets would go for the two point conversion to eliminate the potential overtime period.

 

While it was a very exciting game that featured heavy-hitting in the first quarter, the preseason game died down by the lifeless third period.

 

Both of the Ravens quarterbacks looked very pedestrian with the exception of Joe Flacco’s sweet toss to Derrick Mason that led to the brilliant Ray Rice tricky play for a touchdown.

 

The Ravens end their home preseason schedule scoring an average of 23.5 points and winning both games. And while it may mean nothing in the long run, two wins always feels better than two losses.
