Joe played fantastic in the first half. Where was he at in the second half?

The defense got shredded.

I dont know what else to say.

Remember when I said if the Ravens lose multiple games in a row you can panic? Now's a good starting time to being panicking, sort of.

Same story as last week, which is the same story of the past several years- Cam Cameron needs to go TOMORROW. He let up AGAIN in the second half with a seven point lead. This loss was not on FLacco, so the haters should can it now. Our OC and the wide recievers coach need to be gone tomorrow. This is two in a row that we should have won, and didnt. This team has all the talent in the world on it, but we need some coaching. We had the ball with 0:29 left and a timeout, take a shot at it for crying out loud.

As for the PI on our CB there at the end of the 4th (think it was on Johnson), that was bull. Defenders get away with that kind of move all the time. I don't care which way they call it, but call it consistently. Another week where the refs are a joke. Nevertheless, Cam needs to go tomorrow.

Honestly, I'm not sure if the defense aggravated me more than the offense. I could not believe the ending to this game happened the way it did.

Ray lewis is in and Cousins doesn't run it up the middle on the 2-point conversion and we win

I felt like the Ravens peaked several weeks ago when they played the Raiders and after that seem to be sliding downhill too much. Key injuries and missed opportunities are to blame. And that is football in a nutshell. I think the rest of the regular season is going to be a real challenge for this team and I predict 2 losses and 1 win hereout and barely cling to the division but in the basement in terms of home field advantage. I think tha't exactly where they are right now as a matter of fact. And with this teams problems at present I don't see much post season happiness. Sad to say but true. For me it's looking forward to next season. A fresh start with key players healthy, new draft picks in place and some help in the coaching department will take this team to the next level. This is just not their year.

This is an all time low lost. I feel just like I felt after that guy dropped the pass for the game winning TD last year again New England. I'm not sure if I'm going to watch the game next week. The past two weeks have been disgusting. We do not know how to win in the 4th anymore.

People, the Redskins have a great offense, no doubt about that. I wouldn't say we are the laughing stock yet, we've just been banged up. It's the bandwagon fans that are acting like we've lost every game that teams laugh at us, so take some chill pills or find another team to root for.

First let's state the obvious Fire Cam. Absolutely horrible play calling in second half. Can someone please teach Flacco to step up in the pocket. Wait that's coaching and that's a problem. Flacco should be happy to get any contract next year from anybody. He stinks.
Just a few thoughts after very frustrating loss.

I am done with this team untill playoffs. i expect us to lose next week. I don't know how you can give up 8 points lead with 90 yards to go to a hobbled qb and a backup rookie qb. Put my high school defense, i have a confidence we can stop them from winning/

Amen @05vw you speak the truth! At a first glace.... 2 weeks in a row we have a chance to win the division and clinch an automatic playoff spot and we blow it...Total shame and disgrace. I hope the current losing streak continues in order for us to FIRE Cam Cameron and FIRE Pees and put Harbaugh on the hot seat. This is just poor coaching, effort, will, and a bunch of other words Im forbidden to say. We are a joke! I hope Im NOW on topic enough for this particular news article!!

Blame this one on the coaches . Harbaugh has a free two point conversion and passes up for extra point with 4plus minutes left. Convert the two point conversion and it's a two possession game , miss and you're still up by seven . OC took Flacco out of the game in the 2nd half and defensive schemes were pitiful on the last drive by skins. Wow, am I angry. We should have wrapped up division today!

@drillem - I agree. We RE-BUILD the defense through the draft and trades, get rid of Cam, hopefully Rex get the axe from the Jets and come back home to run the defense again. But we will win the division by default. The other teams will lose enough to help us out. If we can't beat Batch and Cousins what will we do with Peyton and Eli? It can get ugly for us.

If this was a horror movie the first pass of the drive when Joe got intercepted after a long drive on the ground was like the unsuspecting actor walking into a dark house & shouts "who's there?". It's the NFL. The game has changed.

Its not the offense's fault.
Its not the defense's fault.
Its not the punt coverage team's fault.
I defend him as a competent DC who can deliver us wins because he's been doing it all season...but this one is squarely on Pees...he fell for the same dumb garbage TWICE in a row this season.

I saw the play call for the 2 point conversion from a mile away just like i saw it for the Vick Touchdown in week 2.

I dont care whats hppening or whose on the field...if a squad without Brady Brees or Peyton Manning on the roster spreads 5 wide on the goal line, SPY THE QB!! SUCH an easy rule.
They're not gonna let the rookie bench warmer throw it when they need 2 points to push OT, COME ON!!! You aint even gotta be a genius D-Coord to figure that out...and they called a Time out right before he did it too, Pees had a chance to make the right call, and insteadm he Mattison'd us.

Other than Oher beng miserable on the right side, i have no beef with my team's performance in this game, Pees needs to get in the film room and pay attention this time.

SERIOUSLY?!!! Where did Flacco go from the first half to the second?! At the beginning of the season i was actually comfortable with the ball in his hands and the game on the line. Now i dont know what to think. This D needs a lot of help too. Ive been a ravens fan since 05 and have never been so worried about the D as much as i am now. I know theyre hurt but even when guys have gone down in the past weve always had someone to step up. What the heck happened?! Top 10 one year to to 20 something the next?!! This D is missing webb, jimmy, ray and suggs.

Never thought i'd be saying this but FINALLY our flaws have caught up with us & whats even more aggravating is listening to our HC who might as well become a politician with the way he tries to sugar coat the crap that takes place on the field. We may very well lose out for the rest of the season & it HURTS to think about. Fire Cam, fire Pees & if Harbaugh doesn't want to let them go he should follow as well.

@RavenFan28105 ..If you know anything about being a fan then it's accepting when your team is playing horrific. WE CAN'T CLOSE GAMES. And that comes from a true Raven Fan. I will be the first to give praise when it is due.. but the Ravens can't afford excuses as to why they are losing games... they need to Man up and just be Accountable for Why they Aren't Closing out games that they should be winning after leading in the 4th quarter. It's Inexcusable!!!

All the chips fell our way today (PIT lose, CIN lose, RGIII gets hurt) & we still somehow manage to lose this game. All things considered we deserve to be where we're at. We've been overachieving with bad personnel at OC & DC & it caught up with us.

Joe is only looks good when the offensive line gives him DECENT protection unlike Michael Oher who is just a joke and since he is beyond surrounded by quality wide receivers, tight ends, and running backs. Joe Flacco cant lead and carry a team by no means! He is an average QB who got lucky and ended up on a quality team. If Flacco played for the Browns, Jags, Chiefs he would just be another Ryan Leaf. This team is an embarrassment, our true colors are now showing!!! Let the losing streak continue for CHANGES to be made!!!

And the blame for these losses goes ALL AROUND when it comes to the TEAM!!! Not just Flacco, or Cam, or Pee's, or the Defense, Or Special Teams!!! This is a Team Game and the Ravens Lost it as a Team!!! And it Sickens Me how they are Playing... lets get our Fans hopes up and then drop them on their Faces type of Play!!!

The Ravens don't deserve to win anymore. Im sorry, but we have to make some big moves in order to make the next step in this league.

The Bengals and the Steelers lost, and we couldn't even beat the skins but we can beat the Pats?
Another perfect opportunity for the ravens blown away, I can't believe it.

This loss hurts worse than last weeks one because we had it wrapped up and with a win there the division was ours. Considering Pitt and cincy lost and still have to play each other we pretty much are inthe playoffs but were heading the wrong direction. I can almost guarantee flacco getting sacked stripped next week bc were playing Von miller and he has no awareness. Anyone coulda saw that the redskins were bringing everyone when he threw that pick. Great first half from flacco and literaly disastrous second half. Someone's gotta light a fire under his butt or were in trouble

OMG can you freakin zombies give it a rest, its DEFINITELY not Cam's fault. Cam did exactly what he was supposed to do, take advantage of a garbage secondary and target the mess out of DeAngelo Hall's inconsistent self.

Stop being lames and actually pay attn to the game instead of just blaming it on Cam every week because its the popular thing to do.

jek81791, nice try at sugar coating this. But they were playing with poor coaching before the injuries. So that dog won't hunt.

Going after and signing Peyton Manning for all you doubters and disbelievers earlier this year! I was one of the few who begged for Manning but now next week we will see a true NFL offense and QB compared to the joke we have and couldve had....Hope im on topic enough.

Thanks for being faster with the website than last weeks loss. This was a stunning loss today that just punctuates what needs to be done with this team going forward. I repeat, Oher, cannot be our left tackle going forward. You have reduced McKinneys salary by one million dollars this year. That is punishment enough Harbaugh. We need him to anchor the blind side. The offense has to operate @ a faster pace. We need Caldwells' input on the play calling or we are going to blow this thing. This is the second week in a row that we could have sewn up this division. Flacco continues to under throw the ball to T. Smith. Don't they practice together? And finally, everytime the cameras pan to Coach Harboil, he looks lost in space. Next week is a "must win", or, see ya next year. Biscotti will have deep decisions to make.

All the mobile qbs in the league have middling to weak records at the moment, and Colin Klein MIGHT get drafted in the 7th round...MIGHT.

What part of defending a wide open receiver in the end zone do the Ravens do not understand. I see this all the time. They play zone like they are suppose to give the receiver a 10 yard of space. I say is the couches idea. They are suppose to cover the receiver within their zone. They play like they are afraid to be close to the receiver. I never seen a receiver so open in my life.

We may have the worst coaching staff in the NFL, Pees is horrible, Cams been terrible for years and Harbs doesn't have a pair nor does he have the smarts to make any halftime adjustments. We will get blown against a real QB. Maybe we should of went after Peyton if we wanted to win a SuperBowl this year.

Our luck of winning close games from earlier in the season seems to have run out. We have been playing this way all year, but no one paid attention because we were winning the games. Its part of football. You win some close games and you lose some close games.
