Ravens facing another potential weather delay

AP

The 2013 calendar season has featured three separate delays for the Ravens.  From Super Bowl XLVII, when Commissioner Roger Goodell may or may not have kicked the plug out of the wall in the Superdome, to the first game of the 2013 regular season, which featured a lightning delay in Denver, to a November storm delay of nearly two hours in Chicago.

Another delay could be coming on Sunday when the Patriots visit Baltimore, via Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com.  Potentially severe thunderstorms could strike during the game.

“Does that mean lightning?  So, that could be a delay, right?,” coach John Harbaugh said after Friday, via Hensley.  “I wouldn’t be surprised if that happens.”

Given everything the team has experienced this year, it wouldn’t be a surprise.  It would be fitting.

  1. The conspiracy theory that Goodell staged the black out is so stupid. If anyone staged the blackout it would have been someone in the Saints organization to thumb their noses at Goodell because he had the nerve to half-heartedly punish them for their bounty program.

  2. The prediction is for 70F. I don’t think you could ask for more during the month of December in this part of the country.
    Also, note that Ravens lost both of their games which were delayed due to weather.

  3. All I know is a black out happened during the 49ers Steelers game last year while the steelers were winning.

    After the blackout the 49ers came back and won.

    The same thing happened during the superbowl involving the 49ers and they almost came back and won.

    That much coincidence does not exist.

  4. How about you don’t postpone or stop any game unless EXTREME weather (dangerous thunderstorms or hurricanes) is IMMINENT. The Denver delay was unnecessary, just some minor storms miles away, and the timing of the Chicago delay was mishandled… shouldn’t have been nearly 2 hours. Football can be safely played in rain with flashes of lightning on the distant horizon.

  5. Counting down to a long meandering Terrell Suggs rant that suggests a collusion between Goodell and the Farmers Alminac for scheduling the game during a thunder storm to try and sabotage them.

    This will also happen regardless or whether the Ravens win or lose.

  6. The crying raven fans will soon be complaining Goodell planned for the weather delay.oh well any excuse is a good excuse for raven fans to practice their specialty…..whining in unison.

  7. Ravens can weather any storm. Just look at the Vikings game, while at the same time the hapless Steelers were throwing desperation laterals all over the field looking like scared chickens. Hahahahaha!

  8. “Does that mean lightning? So, that could be a delay, right?,” coach John Harbaugh said

    Thunderstorms usually have lightning. This guy is a genius!

  9. Ravens can weather any storm. Just look at the Vikings game, while at the same time the hapless Steelers were throwing desperation laterals all over the field looking like scared chickens. Hahahahaha!

    Scared chickens hide for days when their team loses like you do only to become a loud mouth crow when they win….sounds like a stand up guy right…nah just a raven whiner.
