Baltimore Ravens fans can’t help but feel frustrated, angry and maybe even sick about what they saw on their TV screens Sunday during a 31-28 loss to the Washington Redskins. But let’s be fair, you can’t blame most of that on lousy...

I did not think Sunday-afternoon football, one of the great pleasures of my life, could get any worse than watching the CBS team of Greg Gumbel and Dan Dierdorf calling the game back in October with the Houston Texans whipping the Ravens.
