They’re Not Really Saints, Ravens Aren’t Devils

As Jamison Hensley reported in the Sun, the Ravens get to be the Bad Guys this coming weekend. That's because we're heading for New Orleans to play the the team that has the nation's emotional support as they and their city continue the struggle to bounce back from Hurricane Katrina.

"Everybody loves them, and deservedly so. You go in and beat them, you might as well go and beat up Mother Teresa - you know, 'You scums, what are you doing here?' " [Coach Brian] Billick said. "But that is what we are going to try to do, because there is a great deal of energy and emotion there right now."

Did you know the Ravens have six players who hail from the
New Orleans area? David Pittmann, Ronnie Prude, Ed Reed, Dawan Landry, B.J. Sams, and, oh yeah, Steve McNair.
