If only fans could vote to remove Goddell from the commissioner's role then we wouldn't have to hear the idea of axeing kickoffs.

The Bengals scored a ton on the Redskins, so will the Ravens. Ravens 34 Redskins 24. I think Rice WILL be able to run in this game. Rice heats up in December. GO RAVENS!

All the experts picked us to win last weekend and look what happened. Maybe the Skins will believe all they have to do is show up to win, just like we did last weekend. Everyone is picking the Skins this weekend, maybe that's a good position for these Ravens. Maybe they were exposed last weekend though and the rest of the year could be pretty tough, only time will tell.

I really hope that we win all the games but there is a good chance that we are one of the lower seeds in the playoffs, too. Everyone knew we had a tough schedule this year.

what we need is the no-huddle offense we need to tire there defense that will allow run up against one of the best rush defense in the nfl.

I love how pundits confuse red hot with beaten a few weak teams. Ravens have struggled this season against, and lost to, the best defences. Redskins are in no way a top defence. Broncos remind me a lot of the Bungles last season. Beat the weak teams, lose to playoff bound teams. The Ravens are playoff bound.

Boy do I love this: Torrey Smith asked Joe Theismann for an autograph and Theismann flat out said "NO" and kept walking. Great story, because if it were one of today's players being discussed... maybe Jay Cutler, you'll see Theismann running his mouth about how the player is "bad for the game". Once these guys retire and go into the TV booth all of a sudden they morph into "rational model citizens"; give me a bleeping break!

I listen to Keyshawn Johnson, Cris Carter, Mike Ditka... talk and analyze other players/coaches from a high horse and I'm thinking, "Dude, it wasn't too long ago you were in the game; nobody ever mistook you for a good ambassador for the game!" Boys and Girls, the lesson is believe only a smidgen of what you see and virtually nothing you hear from these so-called players/coaches-turned-analysts.

[/quote] What we need is a balanced attack. The no-huddle didn't work out too well earlier in the season. What we need is for Flacco to throw better than 48% and not hang on to the ball too long in the pocket, and either run or throw it away. What we need is for the coaches to man up and actually adjust DURING the game.

And most of all...what we need is an OC who actually runs an offense.

This team needs to wake up and stop lollygagging.

Yes, I just lollygagging in a sentence. :)

It shouldn't come as a surprise that Harbs and Tomlin have bad blood with each other. Pittsburgh and Baltimore coaches will never get along, we just hate each other inside and out. This is no different than Billick and Cowher. Anyways I'm surprised to see so many analyst picking the Redskins. Let's show them who knows how to win!

[/quote] You're spot on. Most of those analysts were complete d nozzles as players and/or coaches, and are likely no different today. Yet they sit there in front of the camer with their judgemental, self-righteous attitude, telling players and coaches how they should act. Pffft...idiots.

And Joe Theeeesmann has alwasy been a d bag. Heck, he changed the pronunciation of his name to ryhme with Heisam. (Although he'll tell you that the coaches convinced him to do so) Despite him being a golden domer (GO IRISH!!!), I've never like Theeesmann.

5 total no-huddle plays is inexcusable coming from someone who said there would be more of that for our offense earlier in the season.

Finally people are picking the lesser team to beat us. That makes me feel a little better about our chances

At some point, the way rules are changing, in 20 years football will be reduced to each team lining up at the 50 yard line, breakdancing and insulting each other for judges' scores!

By that time, we'll all be cheering on soccer, the other Futbol!

Harbs said: "Peyton Manning now has the luxury of comfortably sitting on his couch Sunday afternoon".

No, No, No, John! Don't shuck the weight! Your unimaginative, under-achieving Offense lost the No. 2 seed, a first-round bye and home-field advantage in the divisional round, and we know who runs that!

Our 'Wild Card' billet and likely early exit will force the FO to do what you failed to do during the BYE! Get rid of that consistently inconsistent cancer on the Offense!

@ravenwildman - rolling about 8 deep to the game!!!

and yes you are correct - our playoff aspirations are in jeopardy and we MUST win from here on out. RG3, Payton, Eli and Dalton are all good QB's and there is nothing I've seen from our offense this year that has me counting my chickens yet...

Thiesman was probably drunk or between his pain meds.........And they are taking away a major part of our offense if they banish kickoffs.....C'mon Flacco if ya want to be here...........PROVE IT!

Your coaching would be just as bad as Cam's - Skins have the 32 ranked passing defense - you spread them out 5 wide and pass on them all day long!!!! They have the 4th ranked rushing defense, you don't run against them!!!

Same thing against the Steeler's - they have the #1 passing defense for a reason and we tried to go deep on them all game so Cam and Harbs can stroke their ego and guess what it didn't work - now we have to fight to stay alive and basically win out to control our playoff hopes, when all we had to do was win last week and it was basically a done deal....smh

To all those out there advocating getting rid of Cam Cameron, who would you replace him with that is any better????
[/quote] I would replace Cam with Howard the freaking DUCK!! Simply getting rid of that "coach" is an instant improvement.

On another note, if the Redskins defense is that bad, then there's no reason in any universe for Flacco and/or Rice not to shred them even further, and those deep balls that fell off last game should almost always be made this game.
