Kudos to Flacco to changing if he needs to. He should take more of a leadership role on offense. Cam can't do it, so Flacco needs to step up.

Mike Wallace to Baltimore is intriguing, But we now need to focus on replenishing our defense with young blue chip caliber players IMO.

Haha !! That Flacco locker room pic is funny, Good to see the guys are still loose & having fun with it, Now let's go & beat these Browns . . .

Go Ravens !!

Is it impossible for Flacco to throw for more than 250 yards while still giving Ray Rice about 17-20 carries and giving some to Vonta Leach also? If not, that doesn't seem like a bad plan.

I'd rather have Brown than Wallace any day. Wallace can only run in a straight line.

Even if Flacco is changing to a pass he is still learning. This is our first year with the no huddle. Peyton Manning didn't learn it over night. Have a little patience.

"Reckless" is EXACTLY what Joe is right now! How fitting!

Ha, "Wallace" would make ANY team better?
What about the Squeelers huh?
Get real, the man is done and we don;t need any more of those!
Fagitaboutit!

I think Reid at LG makes sense, we need to try something that works, Bobbie is HORRIBLE and i think if Reid doesnt work out, we should go back to Ramon..

We all love the hurry-up, the audibles, and the gun-slinging attitude of Flacco.

Flacco changing the plays ot pass is a very interesting dynamic. The writer seems to think he is not doing it to pad his stats but Flacco has a unique confidence that makes me think he does it becuase in his mind the pass is the best option. If that confidence is not coupled with a high enough football IQ the result is what it has been, stalled drives. Now I am a Flacco fan, you can read my prior posts if you dont believe me, but his decision making, especially on hot reads and complex zones is poor. He still can not figure out some things on D. So while a applaud his confidence and his ability to check out of situations, I think he may need to spend some more time with Cauldwell on what to check in and out to. Manning did it masterfully and that with a little more pocket presence and Flaccos ability to climb the ladder in the pocket are his only faults. Oh and picking up a hot read LOL.

Maybe it was just me but it also seemed like Rice was not on the field as much. Do you think old Cam could be trying to take the spot light off of him by his comments.

I thought the idea was to increase the odds of picking up a first down. If it works, great. If it doesn't, of course the decision will be questioned. But ultimately, the goal is to put up more yards, minutes, and points than the other team. If that comes by passing, then pass. Otherwise, run the ball...

The simple (but not easy) solution to the Ravens problem is staying on the field beyond third down. If this team can convert on third down then there are longer drives, more time of possession, more plays run, more players involved on offense, more "touches" for the skilled guys... and most importantly, more rest for the weary defense on the bench. Cam Cameron find a way to call the best plays on third down, players catch and hold onto the ball beyond the first down marker. Ray Rice do what you do. Guys lets shut up and get it done.

Viewers keep saying we never lost to the Browns. If the Ravens don't get their heads out of their behinds.. they will not come out of this game on Sunday with a win. Naturally I want the Ravens to win, but if they play like they did the last 2 weeks and the Browns play like they have been playing the last two weeksk...... should be an interesting game.

Mike Wallace??? unless he is willing to work for a McDonalds Salary, there isn't enough CAP room, besides, Ravens need to reserve all the CAP room they can for Defensive players...

I would love to see him in Purple, even if all it did was tick off Steelers fans twice a year, but it seems like a looooooong shot...
