Sign Heap to be our third TE instead of Bajema! We NEED a RELIABLE target for Joe. ANY help we can get Joe and this horrible offense would be fantastic.

Let me call it now: If the Ravens lose this weekend, this team will unravel and the season will be lost. They will not say it after the game that they are giving up on the season, but it will happen. For their sake... no for our collective sake as fans (because, let's face it, the players don't care as much as the fans do), I hope they win this one. However, win or lose, I think Cam Cameron is gone after this season. Now he is going to force-feed the ball to Ray Rice regardless of how effective the run is during games. This guy is very reactionary and it would be nice if he reacted to in-game situations... no, he reacts to calls for his head towards the end of the season only to go back to what he was doing previously the very next season.

The offense haves to step up or were going down. Cam Flacco and the offenses better fix the problems now because we can't go three and out vs Peyton Manning.

Remember this/// The Redskins have the fourth best defense against the run and the 31st
ranked defense against the pass. That would suggest to most people with a brain that we need to throw the ball a lot. Hopefully, it will suggest the same thing to Cam. If the defense gets torched the offense will have to torch the Redskins. Let's not try to prove a
a point against them by running the ball 35 times. Pass them out of Fedex field.. I won't mind if we have to beat them 48-41.

There is not another OC in the country that gets national attention for calling such poor games as Cam Cameron.

The fact that this guy still has a job is unbelievable.
If John doesnt have the balls to do his job then maybe it's time for Steve to step in.

sports analysts are like women from desperate house wives trying to make snappy comments.. They might have to win on the road... Every week. OKAY sorry we can STILL clinch even if we lose. Didn't think that was sucha problem to win one at home then possibly one away to make it to the big game. ahhh sports writers are all anti-raven now cause DC has a qb now?! we build in house, not that prosthetic Redskin stuff

How long will it be before Dickson returns? Bajema is not much on the offensive side of the ball. They are obviously needing extra help at TE. How about we sign Heap until Dickson returns to that he can get that last catch, then retire as a Raven?

The Ravens will not sign Heap. His last game was week 2. He's played about 4 games foe the Cardinals in 2 years. He has been dealing with injuries for 2 years. I would be surprised if he didn't retire.

Suggs tweet is not a good sign . RG3 is very talented very smart and very mobile. Pss rushing is not going to work we need to set the edge and contain him if not he is going to run all over us . He rarely makes mistakes and the last fumble he had went in for a touchdown so hes lucky as well . Hopefully ellerbe, mcphee kruger,Jones and Tyson bring there A game .

The Ravens will play a contain defense such as the Giants did. They had a good game plan to beat him on defense. If u look at the numbers RG is not that effective when kept in the pocket. That's why the r running the pistol option. The corners r gonna have to play a better game than against the Steelers. On offense, the Ravens ahould do well. They lost a starting CB to a ped violation. Aj green put up almost 200 yards on them. Torrey can do the same.

The biggest loss of the year was Suggs. Now that he's hurt again, I predict that we will be hurting in the weeks ahead trying to stop the RG3 and the Manning boys.

I hope they don't try to turn this game into a Flacco vs. RG3, because Flacco can't win that battle, RG3 is a dual threat, he runs well and passes the ball well, protects the ball and makes good decisions. What he did to the Giants front for was unbelievable, they barely got to him and they have a pass rush, we don't. The best option is to run the ball and keep RG3 off the field to protect the defense, because RG3 is no Charlie Batch, he's not going to miss throws, we just better hope his receivers drop balls like they've been doing all season in critical moments because RG3 puts the ball where it needs to be for them to make the play

[/quote] we are not going to be able to effectively run the ball against the skins . i agree we have to keep rg3 on the bench and flacco has to beat him in the air . the redskins have a poor secondary and they just lost a corner to a suspension. the giants lost that game , penalities , dropped passes, etc etc .

Our to main huge problems we have on offense is Cam Cameron play calling and andy moeller coaching of our offensive line like really Joe has never had a decent pocket lol like i would feel scared if everytime i drop back to pass ill get lit up thats the only reason why joe over throws his target. Give the man time in the pocket

Yeah. One of the very few good things about losing last week was that at least now it's clear who we should root for on that Monday...

Not necessarily doubting what you say, let's not forget that the Radskins have the second worst pass D in the league right ow, while they have the 4th best run D. So, opting for more passing plays seems a logical choice against them and Flacco may seem more prolific against that pass D.

Man to hell with this were going to get beat by RG3 crap this guy is a rookie I'm not giving him that much respect as long as Suggs is here and Ellerbe our defense will be fine. The offense need to quit making excuses and get it done. Cam always turn away wat works for us like running with Rice and crossing routes with Torrey and Jacoby and hitting the TEs down the middle. We need to stick to what works if we don't we will always be inconsistent and always get sent home in the playoffs.

Maybe Flacco needs to get his eyes examined? He's been throwing the ball way high for several weeks now.

Joe Flacco has the best arm in the League, lets not remember that Joe can do a lot of things, but when Cam Cameron is not using the receivers the right way, and not doing slant or post routes or flank routes the Ravens aren't going to do anything on offense. Cam does not know how to make good play calls and keep the defensive coordinator off balance. You can't teach an old dog new tricks. Joe Flacco is a great Quarterback with a lousy coordinator that is holding him back and the receivers are hurting too, because the route running is not fast enough.

[/quote] Someone made a good point in that article.

He basically said that according to Harbs, Joe has the freedom to change the plays; and maybe Joe is the one calling the plays (or audibling out of runnning plays), and maybe for the sake of trying to get that big contract by tyring to put up big numbers.

I guess we'll never know. However, even though the majority of the blame goes to Cam; Flacco is not absolved of responsibility. Flacco still needs to complete the those deep comeback routes that he over threw multiple times. Joe still needs to get rid of the ball...OR FREAKING RUN, when nobody is open down field.

Joe is the one who threw that INT that was basically a pooch kick, that a limbless person could've caught.

All I know, is that I've never had faith in Cam...and my faith in Joe is fading with each passing week. And it sucks, because I had very high hopes for Joe this year. I expected an MVP-type season. Clearly that ain't gonna happen.

I know that people can't see it but our team has the firepower and defense to beat every team we play. We need better o-line coaching and offensive coordinating in order for us to improve as a hole. But as long as we remain to be a winning team those coaches will keep there jobs, and by the time these coaches are gone these players will be old.

How much have you seen the guy play in the NFL? I've seen all of his games and I can tell you he plays anything but like a rookie. This guy is elusive as hell, doesn't shy away from collision at all, passes with an alarming accuracy, has a 104.1 passer rating, 17 TD's and only 4 INT's, 2660 passing yards, 67.7% completition rate - and is the single Most Decisive Factor in the Redskins still competing for a playoff berth.

You can go on not respecting him - but I guess most of the Saints- Giants-, etc. fanst didn't respect him either...

Oh, and we have a fair chance both Suggs and Ellerbe will be at the sideline...

HaHa. I got a bunch of negs for calling out Joe for putting it up 40 times in only 3 quarters - the Browns game at home that we won. I said we should run the ball more and everybody neg'd me only to come back and say the same thing after the Houston drubbing.

You know people don't call it like it is until they are really unsure about what's next

[/quote] Well, a lot of the time you get fans who are a bit blinded by emotion because they think they're not "true" fans when they actually call out the players on the team...especially the QB. Especially the "Joe lovers". They don't want to hear it. But the fact it, Joe is an enigma, because he has screwed this team over a lot with horrible outings. But I think he's had a lot of good outings as well, so it makes it makes it harder to blame him for some of this crap as well.

I'm not gonna sit here and say Joe is "horrible" and that "Tyrod should start". Because Joe is a very good QB. But he's only "great" some of the time. And that's not good enough. Fans need to reallize that he's responsible for his own crappy play, just as much as he is responsible for his great play.

Have the Ravens used the same guys in positions in the O-line for the last 2 weeks? If so, I guess it's time to make 2 or 3 moves!! After all, we wouldn't want the O-line to get used to each other and start to coordinate with each other. They might actually start to play well!!
Harbaugh hasn't allowed the O-line to get used to each other all season, why start now?

I totally disagree that the timing for facing the Redskins couldn't be worse.

The fanfare over RGIII is at a fever pitch. The way you hear the game vs. the Giants being described, you'd think the Skins scored 59 points. I checked the game and I think their offensive output was 17.

The nature of this sport and coverage of it has teams going from Super Bowl favorites to Dogs in the span of a week. The fact that we're coming off an emotional divisional loss and the Skins are coming off an emotional divisional win either works to our advantage, or we're simply not good enough to compete for our place among the elite teams in this league.

I'm glad Peter King and the National Media are starting to chime in about Cam Cameron's mystery play calling. Like Mike PReston said, why pay Ray big time $$ if you don't use him. Seems like HArbs and Cam's game to game decisions, directly contradict the long term / off season strategy Ozzie and the Front Office have taken to improve the depth on the team.

Two things are certain...the deception in the Redskins offense will be a headache and Cam Cameron will continue to piss off the fanbase with dumb playcalling. Too bad even national media, who HATES us btw, even can see why we aren't getting it done and our franchise is unable to. I hope they pound RG3 at every possible turn.

Not blaming Joe. Just curious of the playcalling. Now if it's Joe that says lets pass 40x's in 3 quarters, then shame on him. But I gotta think that with 53 minds plus 11 or so coaches, someone can come up with a smart game plan that helps you win the close games. It's done and over with now.
