Harbaugh needs a sit down with his Coordinators this week. This cannot continue. We are blowing it! Be glad this isn't Dallas. Jerry Jones would be all over it.

If we had a valid Field Goal Kicker, we might be able to play smart and give hims a chance to perform!

WHAT? We do?

Never mind!

Last couple games, we looked like last year's Ravens that couldn't close out the deal in games they really should have won. Thats a recipe for disaster against other contending teams like the Broncos. We gotta pour our heart into it; and I said heart and not hearts because we have to play as one, not at crossroads. We are better than this.

Moral of the story: If your quarterback likes the no-huddle, let him have it.

^ i absolutely agree with this? what? i'm a smashmouth, run the ball type of cat however, Flacco seems to really want to run the no huddle offense because maybe...just maybe...it's his strength. i think that he reads the defense quicker from it. IF that is the case...give it to him Cam!

Im gonna have to put the loss on the defense although all three parts of the team (offense, defense, special teams) blew it in the last 2 minutes and overtime. They had a 4th round back up rookie in the game who had been sitting comfortably on the bench brfore being pressed into service. I cannot believe we didnt blitz him like the Redskins blitzed Flacco.
That was a very bad thing not to do.

We need a passing game too... We have a running game.... I love Rice and Pierce... but we need our passing game back. Torrey needs to run crisper routes... needs to double back more and get opened... Boldin cannot carry our passing game.

Flacco stinks...Ravens fans need to get used to this or deal with 5 more years of almost there or worse.

Defense would be fine if we had a coordinator that knew anything about defense...Playing Zone D with a patchwork unit does not work

Getting stripped sacked or throwing interceptions have alsoultely nothing to do with No-huddle offense. Stop making excuses for Joe. He played another bad game and had turnovers in a crucial situation.
Flacco is not a play maker . He a game manager. If he get protection and receivers get open, he just liek every QB in the league is fine. Blitz him and play tight man to man he's terrible. The elite and good QBs site adjust and throw hot reads where the defense is blitzing. JOe just holds onto the ball and wait for receiver to get open on the inital play call.

After 5 years:
1. Pocket presence is terrible. How many games does the Ravens lose because he's striped in the pocket
2. Still misses Torrey when he beat coverage deep
3. Doesn't reconize blitz and adjust protection and routes. That is the one thing that is not on Cam. A QB on the field has to be able to adjust to what the defense is doing and check to a better play.

But hey, he thinks he's elite and want big money. And the Ravens, because there is no one available in free agnecy or draft are forced to pay him. How can they possible improve a sliding dfense. Ravens may be in trouble for years.

Only a complete homer could think that fumble was ours if they watched the game and the replays that followed the play. David Reed was still juggling the ball as he was sliding out of bounds, he did not have control before he was touching the sideline. The only reason Eisenberg put it in there is to elicit the reaction and to draw attention. Transparent.

Hate to say it but it sure would be nice to have a QB like Big Ben someone who can make plays out of nothing...Someone who can scramble out of the pocket instead of stand there and say hes taking one for the team..Face it guys with Joe Flacco we prob wont see a trophy

So Joe wants more no huddle? Why not. Cam has reverted back to his over-sphincter tighten conservative play calling when the Ravens get ahead. He doesn't adjust and no matter what, has no imagination, even when he is trying to be conservative...

Conservative doesn't cut it. The Ravens have to figure out how to win a game and trying to sit on a small lead by running between the tackles when your offensive line hasn't consistently opened holes all year is curious at the very least.

Well, let's hope we get Ray, Sizzle, and Elerbe back for this Sunday, or we will have a long day coming. Someone please tell Flacco to tuck after counting three Mississippi!

GO RAVENS!
