Rap Sheet Rundown: The Week 7 Edition

Ravens RB Ray Rice wasn’t thrilled with how things went Sunday (Associated Press)

Of all the things that came out of the ugly loss on Sunday by the Ravens, it’s that they have some issues that need to be fixed. Ravens coach John Harbaugh was pretty blunt with how everything should be looked at after the Texans beat them down. And as DT Haloti Ngata told me about the defense, “Right now, we’re at the bottom.

They’ve lost LB Ray Lewis, they’ve lost CB Lardarius Webb, Ed Reed has a torn labrum, and Ngata pointed out, “Today I was… I wasn’t 100 percent.” Duh. And so, Baltimore looked like the worst 5-2 team you can imagine. And yet… they are still in prime position.

With the bye coming up, with some top-notch coaches, with a lot of young talent, they have a nice buffer to turn it around. That’s why Terrell Suggs was right when he told me, “There are some teams whose season is over now, can’t get in the playoffs. But that’s not us. We still can get the 1 or 2 slot.”

How the Texans and Ravens stand heading into their bye is the lead to my Rap Sheet Rundown. Read that, stay for the other stuff.
