Hey guys, welcome to the first of 16 or (hopefully) more installments of the "Wednesday Wish List" that will take place following the Ravens' games this season heading into the next week.
If you're looking for a simple game recap, you won't find it here—instead you'll find one fan's musings on the game a few days removed from the immediate jubilation or lack thereof following the game.
