4 of 6


We will lose games, let’s deal with it and move on to the next week.

This kind of goes hand in hand with #2. What brings this rule into play are the fair weather, fickle fans.

You know them. You know at least 3 of them.

These are the fans who hate the Ravens when they lose and sound off on social media about it for a couple of days, but then love the Ravens when they win and can’t stop posting as many Ravens pics as they can.

There has to be a better way of dealing with a Ravens loss than this schizophrenic manner.

Losing games build character and creates opportunities for improvement.

Of course we’d like to never lose more than 5 games in a season because that all but guarantees a playoff opportunity. But again, it will happen.

So learn how to cope with it. Be angry, but do we really have to call for Harbaugh to be fired or Flacco to be benched, or go perusing through the free agent list desperately wanting Ozzie to just sign everyone available?

Next: Rule #2
