After a season-ending 31-10 win in Kansas City on Jan. 2, Cable told reporters “We’re not losers anymore” – a statement that really got under Davis’ skin. Cable said it again at a news conference the next day.
Cable had replaced the fired Lane Kiffin early in the 2008 season – and Kiffin also filed a grievance against Davis.
Sure, it looked good against the Kansas City Chiefs a week earlier. But the Chiefs are a mediocre team at best. They looked like playoff pretenders against the Ravens. And the fact is that when the Ravens absolutely needed to move the ball Saturday, when the sell-out crowd at Heinz Field was rocking the place and everything was on the line, the offense choked big-time.
So a season that began with so much promise, with players and coaches saying ” Super Bowl or bust,” just went bust.
I can’t wait to hear what owner Steve Bisciotti says at his annual “State of the Ravens” news conference.

Originally from Ohio, Patrick is a Chiefs fan first and a Browns fan second (I know!). He also pulls for the Buckeyes, Indians and Cavs. Guinness is thinking of naming him the most miserable sports fan of all time. @rpatrickallen
