The trade deadline came and passed, and the Ravens didn't make a trade. Surprise, surprise. That was very predictable, except in new-wave journalism. With the Internet and so many sources of information, you can't tell the lies from the truth. And yes, we have a lot of storytellers here in Baltimore.

If you believed some of them, the Ravens had great interest and were willing to trade for receivers Terrell Owens, Joey Galloway or Dwayne Bowe over the weekend. That startled me because I thought the Ravens were going to possibly trade for Bo Diddley, Bo Jackson, Bo Bo Brazil or Bo Derek over the weekend.

There are two times of the year when you can count on reading a lot of speculation, and that's the week leading up to the draft, and the weekend before the trade dead line.

It gets ridiculous after a while.
