Bob Milacki, 1991 Upper Deck #328

Okay, I'm short on words tonight, but I can tell you that there won't be any more football talk around here for a while. It's been a great and surprising season for the Ravens, and the future looks even brighter. Speaking of the future...pitchers and catchers report on February 14.

Looks like Bob Milacki is attempting to change the date on this card back to 1989. He was successful in 91 to get near his 89 "success", but couldn't turn the clock back much afterwards.

Sorta like the Ravens this year. I was really expecting the magic to happen at any time tonight, but it wasn't meant to be 2000/2001 all over again. I will put away my Ravens jersey until August! :(

Tim - Good observation! It was a shame to see Bob knocking around with the likes of Cleveland and Kansas City in the mid-90s, trying to hang on.

I watched the Ravens game with family last night, and we were convinced that they had that game when they closed to 16-14. I think there's a lot more long-term structure to this team than the 2000/01 club, though. The OL (except Willie Anderson) is in their low-to-mid 20s, Flacco and Rice are young, Ngata is just getting warmed up, and the Ravens are a LB factory. I like 2009.
