Injuries have been a dager for us. If you want the god honest truth, I think if suggs is truly that injured, we do our best to get to the SB(3 more games and we have the division), but realistically our season is over. It just doesn't seem to be our year, not bc of poor play, but bc of injuries. I think that if Lewis and Webb were in with a fully healthy Suggs throughout the entire season we would win the AFC easily. The piss poor coaching of Cam Cameron doesn't help, and I think that if Steve is smart enough, he will tell oz to fire him at the end of the year. We have such a talented team, with a season plagued by injuries, and stupidity from Cam Cameron

If we still had Webbb I wouldn't be so worried about our defense..... Ray Lewis was more an emotional dude than anything. So him getting hurt Actually will boost our explsiveness and Ellerbee,Mccalin are faster and have more of a thwack than ray. If our offense starts to take hits thn we'll go 9-7.... Which might actually still get us in the playoffs.... Oh well if we 10-6 or 11-5 12-4 13-3

Its kinda hard to pin this one on Cam, we moved the ball pretty well. Flacco had a couple of errant throws, but was on target for most. The sack/fumble is what killed us, but it was what it was. We played a good game, but we got lucky they didn't put up more points. In the end, that roughing call sealed the deal and the misuse of timeouts insured we couldn't respond. Our team just had some mistakes that we couldn't overcome in the end. We need to put this behind us because our schedule is not going to let up. If we play like we did tonight against the donkeys, they are going to light us up, damn skins are on playing tough, and if you saw what the giants did to GB...well,then we also got Cinci. I will be happy if we can get 2 wins with our injuries over the next 4. Its all about getting to the playoffs, anything can happen there and we will probably have to play pitts again if we get there.

Most problems i see with the ravens offense are bad decisions. I mean the offense played pretty good, but that one goal line drive when they held us to a field goal i was pissed. It was first and goal from the ten, and Ray Rice gets 6 yards. Then 2 incomplete passes and a field goal. Cmon, just run it at least once more, to see if he could just repeat the same yardage and get the TD.
Also, I think our offense would be so much more explosive if we had more of a screen game. We have great guys for it, Ray Rice, Bernard Pierce, Dickson for a TE sneaky screen, and Jacoby and Torrey for bubble screens. I mean Q could take one also, but hes the best blocker of the receivers. People say taking a shot is going deep(which it is), but how about hitting a screen and taking down the sideline for a 70 yard TD? One good block, and one good move by a speester like torrey or jacoby and they are gone.
im sure Ray Rice would bust a long one if we used them more often

Yesterday I said I'd really like to hear the explanation for the challenge from the guy who saw the replay up in the booth and suggested Harbaugh to throw the flag. now it seems Harbaugh made the decision on his own? Because if so than this one was the second most idiotic challenge this season, right after Schwarz's one two weeks ago. How did the guy think he could see it from the sidelines? How could he be so sure he didn't even ask for a quick check up in the booths?

We don't know what would have happened if he didn't challenge, how that would have changed the outcome of course (probably not much) - but surely that extra timeout would have come handy at the end.

there's one huge, fatal thing I see this season: the lack of consistency. There's simply no way of telling which Ravens come out of the tunnel: the one that can beat any team or the one that even struggles against teams like the Chiefs and wins only because the other team is somehow even weaker. No indication. The last time we had two really good games in a row was last season. This season we had 3 games where we played like a team with the Ravens roster strength should play: v the Bengals (week#1), the Pats (week#3) and the Raiders (w#10). All our other games we played much, much below the way this roster could play. And that's anything but promising for the playoffs, since this team should somehow put together an at least 2-game series of good play to getinto the Super bowl (3 if we go to the wild card round, entirely possible) and at least 3 A-game weeks in a row to win the Super Bowl.

And isn't that the goal?

Good you mentioned that... do we know why that play was stopped at all? I can't imagine any ref saw flacco's knee being down - it wasn't even close.

I think if ellerbe was there and Johnson maybe this would have been different now suggs maybe be out who's left on defense to back anyone up anymore for a playoff run.

The head judge made the call, who was behind Flacco without a good view. He saw that Flacco was wrapped up and wasn't going to run or anything and made the call. It was total bs, but every ref has they're own interpretation of when forward progess is stopped.

I just wish Flacco would step up or step to the side .. step somewhere and stop taking so many bad sacks. But whatever .. you win some, you lose some.

Suggs made one play early, that's it. With all the hype about this guy, where the hell is he. Same as last season, he doesn't show up.

kruger... not really mad at him because if the offence was playing like they played at home this season it wouldn't have gotten to a f.g. And I will say it again. pees has been doing better since he went in the box. cam take note and get ya butt up there lol. heck try it out cause you might see some things that you can't see on the ground and my bro went to see the game and he said the midddle of the field was clear d near the whole entire game but flacco has been keying on one wr... if he's not open you know who gets it... yup ray rice. but I wanna see more looks around the field. you have the weapons. used them. besides that. this game shouldn't have come to a field goal. now wake up and get back to work. forget this game. redskins are next.

Wonder if Suggs not being on the field made the ultimate difference in not getting off the field in the end... How many 3 and longs did Pittsburgh convert on that last drive? Seems like all of them were stoppable and we didn't. Get better Sizzle. The D needs you BAD!

As for Freddy Kruger? He man. You got hosed. That hit is normally never called. You weren't too high. I swear the NFL must have an agenda as they want all games close and I suspect want their beloved teams in the hunt. A loss would have taken the Stealers out of it.... Keep you head up Paul. No apology needed.

Not a good decision. Harbaugh's challenge may have been his worse challenge as a head coach. He had absolutely zero chance of winning it and it cost us in the end. Had we had 2 timeouts left at the end we would have gotten the ball back with 45-50 seconds left and maybe give Tucker a shot at a 50 yard fg. I don't know if Harbaugh decided on his own to challenge that play but if someone upstairs called down and told him to challenge thta play then he should be fired

Krueger's penalty was a side effect of a pass rush front that was anemic all game long. Frustration at not being able to get a shot on the QB can cause a guy to take a shot when he gets a rare occasion ... but unfortunately that may come a second too late and cost you.

Joe ,Cam, & John take a cue from Kruger at least he was man enough to own to mistake. He actually played a good game. John just own up to it you have not had your team ready to play. You also need to step in if you O.C. is making bone head calls you have the game in control and your throwing and stoping the clock. Think you need to ask your Dad for help he would tell you to run the ball in that situation. Pis poor prep pis poor game management. Take accountability and control of your coaching staff

All the talk is Flacco's strip sack ... and that does qualify as the most glaring example. However, the D took a serious step backwards last night. They looked a lot more like the D of the first 4 games. A weak offense scored 23 on us and it should have been way more. The Steelers offense did us some huge favors. Miss on Wallace's sideline drop, overthrow of Wallace in the end zone and Sanders open field fumble - they literally should have had 14 points rather than 3 in those situations.

The pass rush was pathetic. There were times where we looked lost in our coverage and while we had the receivers on the outside covered, we were getting GASHED for HUGE yards in the middle of the field.

Ultimately, Reed made the play that should have redeemed our evening - but enter Joe Strip Sacco. The offense needed to take that beautiful pick and turn it into a game winner. Instead, they turned it into a loss. Sad, sad, sad.

Probably not. Suggs didn't have a particularly productive day - especially compared to the "full package" Suggs. He had like 2 tackles the whole game?

Huge props to Kruger. Man up. That's Raven accountability. If only Cam Cameron, Dean Pees, Joe Flacco, Terrence Cody, Brendan Ayanbedago, and a few other players would follow suit, we maybe on to something. Pittsburgh came in with a makeshift O line, 3rd string quarterback and back up RB's and they took it to us.

Kruger has nothing to be ashamed of. Our OC is the one holding us back. It boggles my mind that we have a top 3 back on our team who just scored a TD the previous drive off of a huge run, and he doesn't get the ball one time in the 4th quarter. Even BP was getting 8-9 yard runs as a back up RB, but our OC decided to go with our top 20 QB to win the game instead. The D came up big when it had to and the O squandered it away. Absolute frustration.....

T-Sizzle shows so much heart, Harbs shows no courage in retaining Cam, and Cam has no brains! Just missing Dorothy and Toto,... we have a Wizard of Oz!

Harbs, that challenge almost rivaled walking off the field in Foxboro with a Time-out in your pocket last year! What is it with you and Timeouts?

Still bleeding purple here but the bleed-out from self-inflicted wounds onfield are making me woozy!
