I don't see that team being so good as to hand them the conference, let alone their division.
defense and matt stover can score our points, just like they did in 2000. by the way, our defense (not a balanced team) took us to and won us a superbowl...
This is not 2000 though. I could make the same argument that in 2000, Faulk, Bruce and Holt made a fearsome force that was unbeatable, thus they should be able to do it again based on that logic, and of course such a claim is laughable. Rams may not even be the best team in the worst division in all of the NFL.
Its obvious the Ravens are trying to make a run at the SB, and they'll certainly be in contention, but heavy favorites? They've added a lot, but they've also lost some quality people. Overall improvement, definitely, but not enough to be SB favorites.
