#24 looked pretty good tonight and #32 made the play to supposedly put the game away if we could get two 1st downs!?!? The Hammer laid the wood and #20 didn’t fumble the fumble recovery.
Thank you Jacoby, you saved our arses. Just try to do a more manly TD dance next time.

Defense- Forced 3 turn overs. Held one of the best running back committees to 134 yards when their game plan was to run the ball. The defense (pretty far into the depth chart in a few areas) is much improved since two 200 yard rushing games in the first half of the season. B
Offense- Made no turn overs. Did what they needed to win, scored on two drives. It looked like they went up against division rivals who happened to be the #1 defense in the NFL. C
Special Teams- Good kicking, good blocking, good running. They won the field position battle in this game and was the difference maker in this game. Have came a long way since last season. A

Defense very good

Cam Cameron fails consistently to call plays in tight spots; his lack of imagination and situational awareness is crippling to the offense. As much as i hate believing it, I cant see this team winning the big one with him calling the plays on offense. Regardless of the outcome of the season, ne needs to go. I can't imagine what Flacco could do with an OC who understood the personnel better and had a better mind for calling plays.

I hope they figure something out on that side of the ball soon, we really shouldnt be having these problems, facing a good defense or not.
Defense is returning to form, DBs stingy as ever. Graham had a message for everybody, he's not just a special teams ace out here, throw it at him if you want.

Next one: 3rd and 2 to win the game late in the 4th quarter. Rather than run the ball, which despite their lack of success still seemed to be the best option to put the game away, Cameron calls a pass from the shotgun.. Joe stands back a bit and is sacked.
Actually running the routes and taking the sack used up more clock than running Rice into a brick wall wouldve so i wouldnt criticize that much.
Statistically, odds sucked that we picked up that first down either way, so i actually dont have a problem with this call.
my only wish is that maybe Joe gets out of the pocket here and tries to make something happen. If nothing else, he would at least burn even more clock with the chase

On another note, I'd like to see stats on our D through the past 10 games. Would seem to me it's made steady improvement, and the low rank is due to ancient history.
If Coach Pees in the box helps, great move.

I can't believe (well never mind, I forgot where I was for a second) some of the things that you people cry, complain and constantly gripe about on here, SPECIALLY AFTER A WIN, and a win against a heated/hated division rival in the Steelers!!
Of course there are plenty of things that need work, need tweaked, need adjusted etc. etc. etc!! But the Baltimore Ravens are 8-2, are sitting atop the AFC North division with now a two game lead over the Steelers, have won so far all of their division games and every last conference game except one (Houston)!! So as of right now all those things are a HUGE help, "if" it comes down to it and the Ravens need that kind of help to decide a seed or whatever.
The Ravens are winning games right now, not pretty by any means, BUT WHO CARES how pretty it is. A win is a win, is a win!!!!!! C'MON MAN, enjoy this win and let them boys and coaches keep doing what they're doing. Once there is a COMPLETE MELT DOWN, then go back to your crying and nit picking and pointing fingers and having complete little kid temper tantrums!!
Tha RAVENS WON AND IT'S GOING TO BE A GREAT MONDAY, AND WEEK!!! WELL DONE BOYS AND GET THAT REST YALL NEED!!
