On the 4th n 29 play, Q was a good 40-45yds down the field and instead of giving up when a hail mary wasn't attempted he comes flying back 20-25yds towards the ball and absolutely ANNIHILATES Weddle on a crushing block, which springs Rice for about 5-7 extra yds for the first down instead of being tackled short and ending the game!!!! THATS A FOOTBALL PLAYER!!!

Wile I can and do agree 100%
This was a complete TEAM victory.

That block was sick and took TWO players out of the play.

Not for that block. Game over.

You could say that about alot of the clutch plays.

But, imho we almost lost because Harbs thought it would be a good idea to go for it on 4th with pierce when it was 3-10. Ranks up there in the Harbs dun goofed standings.

It was a good idea but our wonderful offensive line also thought it'd be a good idea to just let Antwan Barnes and Co. come on inside and wipe their feet while they were at it. Totally legit call, I would have done the same and everyone in the thread before the play happened wanted us to go for it. Our guys didn't pull it off, but the play call was legit. Period.

I agree it was a good decision to go for it but it should've been a qb sneak! That gets the job done 9 times outta 10.

why is there a need to try and give 1 specific player credit for a win? the defense got the needed stops. it was a great block by Boldin but Ray did the running. Joe was making some great throws. Pitta and Doss make big catches. and Torrey made a hell of a catch on the sidelines. and then Tucker kicked the game winner. all parts of a team working together!

It's easy for us to sit back and criticize it after the game, but in the heat of that moment, there's no right or wrong answer as to whether you go for it in that situation.

In the context of the game, if you go for it and succeed, you extend the drive. If you fail, you still have plenty of time left in the game to come back. If you kick it and miss, it's a moot point. If you kick it and score, the team still has to drive down the field and score again.

I don't think so, it was going to be a low scoring game, if you couldn't tell by 3rd quarter. Not taking the field goal was a strech... a far one. Not, that it really mattered though, if the game was an important one(like a steelers championship game), I guarantee Harbs would of not approved of that play.

We went into overtime because of Harbs, could of just won it legit.

It was not a stretch...We had built up momentum on that drive and only needed to pick up a few inches. There was still plenty of game left and settling for another field goal there would have sucked. If only we could have converted...

That's what it looked like to me. I thought Pierce was just there for an extra option, and Joe audibled it.

He also leveled a guy on his first catch (by the sidelines).

Q was a big part of it but it was certainly a team effort. the d did a heck of a job keeping our O in the game, ray with his effort and Q on the block, Tuck with his clutch kicking, joe made some great throws in the 2nd half, and Torrey with the superb catch to set up the GW.

That was amazing. He knocked the guy a yard or two off and off his feet, and would have kept going if there wasn't a guy behind him.

TOTAL TEAM win here. Joe, Rice, Tucker, The Defense, Boldin, Pitta, etc were huuuuge! The only unit I wouldn't praise is the Oline.

Of all our punts, I think there were 4-5 drives that were multiple plays -as in stringing them along but our oline giving up massive pressure and sacks.

Either way, great TEAM win.

We didn't win because of Q's play alone, but what a heads up clutch play. He needs to remain a Raven until he retires. True warrior.

That was an absolutely beautiful play. Rice out ran literally half of the Chargers defense, and then Boldin's awesome block got Rice the few extra yards needed for the first down. Unbelievable play.
