The Clues Are Everywhere
This season has not panned out the way we had envisioned it. Call me crazy, but I think the rough start was caused by something more than just injuries. Wake up, sheeple. The Ravens have exactly eleven players on injured reserve, but look closer:
w( ILL ) davis, terrell s( U )ggs, ( MI )chael capa( NA )ro, mat( T ) elam, allen re( I)sner
mi( C )ajah reyn( O )lds, julia( N ) wil(S )on, zach thom( P )son, lorenzo tal( I )afe( R )ro , brent urb( A )n, ( C)am worth( Y )
ELEVEN players. If you take away two (2) from eleven you get nine (9). Justin Tucker is No. 9 and he's missed - that's right - TWO (2) field goals this year. Still think that's just a coincidence? Look at the photo evidence below. Notice how everyone is watching the kick... except for the police officer.
So How High Up Does This Go?

Here Are The Weirdest Things I Never Posted
It's been a rough week, so I'm going to share my secret stash with you. The following is a collection of the weirdest GIFs and images that I made for previous articles and then rightfully never posted.
I honestly have no idea where my head was at when I did them. They have no purpose whatsoever and I'm very sorry.
See you next week!
