Sunday's comeback win may have been the moment lethargy fell off unsatisfied Ravens fans.

we shouldn't have been in that situation to begin with. pees made a move to the booth and it has paid off thus far. why cant cameron do the same. as injured as our defense has been this season they are once again carrying this team because our offense struggles so much on the road. dropped passes, overthrown and underthrown passes and poor o-line blocking is not cams fault but he has been so inconsistent with his play calling for several years now that it cannot be ignored in the off season especially with the talent we have. go ravens!!

To be honest, after four seasons of putting everything you can into the season as a fan and almost making it every year is tough. After last season which most Ravens' fans thought was our year, it's just too hard to keep it going emotionally. I actually told myself at the beginning of this season not to kill yourself so much over the season this year. Going to the playoffs 5 straight years now is tiring.

Ray may not know it but his phrase is the same used by Lydell Mitchell from the 70's Baltimore Colts "Hey dittle dittle, Lydell up the middle"

I believe that was how it went.

What people are afraid of is that unless we are the #1 seed, we won't have the offensive firepower to get the job done. We had enough turnovers last year in new england to win that game and we didn't score enough TDs. Thats what people are afraid of. THe SD game is one of many to put that into sharp relief. Thats why people are not going to be effusive when we score 55 at home, then go 8 quarters without an offensive TD on the road.

I have to admit, I was disappointed when Coach Harbs called for another try at first down at 4th and 6 inches. The way the game was shaping up I thought points were at a premium and just go for the three points. But after watching his press conference on the game and him saying that he trusted the players and that it was better to try than not. I have to agree, GO RAVENS!

"Do you hear the sustain?"

"No, I don't hear anything."

"You would if it were playing."

JOHN: This is where the media gets it wrong, IT'S NOT STYLE POINTS that we care about.

What we care about, is our QB getting sacked waiting for these deep routes to develop, or SAME OUT ROUTES to open up, while the Oline can't hold back guys for 10 seconds.

Because we constantly see the same passing routes, SO DOES THE DEFENSE, and they are adjusting by putting guys underneath and overtop, basically double covered, meanwhile the middle of the field is barren. Thus, Offense sputters unless Joe can fit into a tight window.

Now with that drag to Torre, slant to Boldin, deep middle to Pitta, we started to finally use the middle of the field, and buame UNPREDICTABLE!

That my friend, is all we are asking for. Some variety, mix it up, stop throwing the bomb at the opponents 40 yard line and punt, get the first down, get into field goal range, use a quick short passing game designed to get the ball out of Joes hand quicker if the line isn't holding up.

In other words, OC do your job!

The way I have been looking at the horrible offensive performances on the road this season is that last year we would have lost these games. So they are making at least some form of progress, even if it doesn't make the frustration any easier to bare... That and I drink a lot of beer. ={P>

We are spoiled in some aspect, but we need Festivus Maximus this year. Nothing else is going to satisfy our fanbase anymore except ultimate victory.

So much crying and complaining. now your complaining we went to playoffs a lot, next time plz put that on another site not here. Not the ravens, We are a winning team. you want pretty watch lingerie league nfl isnt for you. Go ravens

bmorebirdflu52 - we all apologize we had no idea YOU were the fan police!!!

John I don't think it's lethargy at all, I think it's exhaustion. Most of us are pretty fierce and committed. Every year we go on a roller coaster ride that just drains the heck out of us. I noted a comment on here that was familiar to my own thoughts.

Not to get so involved. It's been difficult to see our vaulted "D", struggle, you know no matter what we always had our "D", so it's been tough. We have never had a top 5 "O", so we deal, though heart wrenchingly.

Last year was hard on all of us including the team. Guess we needed to catch our breath. It's all good.

The ravens have won close games, for sure, and that run Sunday ws amazing. But Ithink all of us are wondering what happens when they play really good teams? We saw one ugly example against Houston. The Steelers without Ben are just mediocre and we barely beat them. What happens whenwe play Peyton, or in the playoffs if we have to play Housaton, th packers, or even SF, who looks really way better than last year. Maybe we will rise up nd prove we're really a great team, but it seems doubtful. Hope I'm wrong.

PS-Whatever happened to wide receivers running back toward the qb when they are not open. That was the way all reveivers used to be taught. I notice fewer and fewer receivers do this anymore.They run their route, stop, look around to see where the ball is going instead of running back to help their scrambling qb. Bad idea. Come back towardthe qb and make a play out of nothing for Godssake.
