Unlikely Hero Saves Raven's
As I mentioned in my last entry the Ravens played the team with the worst record in the league this week, the Houston Texans. I was worried about this game, not because the Texans are a good team, but how embarrassed I knew I was going to feel if the Ravens lost this game. Luckily enough they pulled off another win, with a great last minute drive by the unlikely hero, Kyle Boller.
Kyle Boller walked onto the field with just about one minute and a half left on the clock, and no time outs. The Ravens where down by 2 points at this point, and three of their starting offensive linemen are out of the game due to injuries. Despite these odds Boller led the Ravens to a great game winning drive, with Matt Stover’s field goal with six seconds left making the final 16-15.
Once again this game was a disappointing one to watch. The game was full of fumbles, interceptions, dropped passes, and stupid penalties. I say it every week that we manage to win a game, “A win is a win.”
I had some horrible thoughts today though. Now that the season seems to have come to a miserable end for the Ravens I found myself actually wanting the Ravens to lose. Not because I don’t like them anymore, but the team with the worst record gets a better draft choice, and since I belief that the Ravens need a quarterback and running back, we need a top 5 pick. Every game we win now kind of just ruins our chance of getting a great college player in the draft. I think Reggie Bush would look good in the Ravens Black and Purple.
Next week the Ravens have the Denver Broncos who has an explosive running offense. Lets hope that all the key players that are injured now will be healthy by next weeks game.
