Man, where do you start?

9-3 with issues

I want to see a plan on Offense and Defense

Why are we still seeing the same problems on Offense after week 11?

On Defense, it looked like we had a plan, things got figured out, then we abandoned the pass rush, put extra guys in coverage, but they didnt cover anybody

Then we get a 2 score lead on a 3rd string Qb, and he beats us. I JUST DONT GET IT HOW OUR Head Coach can sit idly by and not force adjustments. I mean, why even be on the sidelines if you cant help your team while you watch it go south week after week.

To answer your question a Cam Cameron led Ravens on Offense, and an injured Defense.

The air Coryell does not fit the ravens offense.

First, we need two fast receivers that can adjust to deep throws.we only have one and Torrey still can't do it consistently. Boldin is too slow , and jacoby is underutilized.maybe he should share return duties with Thompson.

Second, we underutilize the middle of the field. We need to go to Pitta to avoid attention on boldin(cams fault). Cam loves sideline throws. Limiting his own offense.

Bottom line: our offense personnel is not perfect for air Coryell. Cam needs to adjust. Why won't he.this is partly why we lost to New England and could not finish Pittsburgh. Teams can just bracket Torrey and force joe to throw to a surrounded boldin or hold and get stripped. We need more creative plays and formations.Or a change in OC.

But, in the end the ravens win next week and cam is off the hook. It is an endless cycle folks.

We're 9-3.

But the way I would describe this team would be a injured, inconsistent, mysterious and bipolar contender who is being held back from sir Cameron.

Were 9-3 even with all the difficulties.

What other team has a 9-3 record that has done with all the losses we went through?

It shows we are tough and that we got tenacity to get things done. It shows we are not losers, that we're more than 1 man in Ravens uniform.

We'll get through this thick and thin. Thats just how Ravens roll!

Its crazy, though:

NE game was a "controversial" FG away from being something different.
KC game we needed 4 gifts or the outcome was something different.
Dallas game was a missed FG away from being something different.
Pitt game 1 was a starting QB away from being something different.
San Diego game was a 4th and 29 away from being something different.

I tend to be pretty positive, but damn, we are nearly 4-8!

It happens to alot of team in the NFL though; we are not the exception. The Steelers were very lucky last year too so I'll take any win as a win; however, we are in deep trouble as offensively cuz it seems to me we'll go as far as our offense can take us. We are no longer to count on our defense to win games.

PS: Only score to keep us alive in the playoff and the postseason games and hopefully our defense will come alive when it counts the most.

Of course it can happen to any team, but this has been a very ugly 9-3 team.

I have faith, but its being tested right now, that's for sure!

Identities are overrated.

Bottom line: do you win games? Do you find a way to win, even when you shouldn't? When a team does that, that's all that really matters. Looking good while winning just happens to be icing on the cake.

And let's face it: none of us will complain about this team winning ugly IF they walk away Super Bowl Champions -- big IF.

A team that is being held back by two coordinators who are stuck in their ways and refuse to adapt.

I have seen this happen in other sports, where a coach will go to a new team and bring his gameplans and strategies with him, and just seems unwilling to adapt, and believes if you keep trying to pound square pegs into round holes they will eventually fit.

This Ravens team has a ton of talent, their record speaks to that. We have some coordinators who just aren't utilizing the players to the best of their abilities however, which is why the team hasn't come even close to realizing their full potential. Harbaugh needs to smarten up really soon, and find some coaches who are willing to work with the tools our players have, otherwise it might cost him his job as well, which would be really unfortunate.
