Two HOT SEATS REMAIN.

1. John Harbaugh. He took 2 years to make this decision. Jon too has shown a propensity for not managing time clock well.

2. Joe Flacco. He needs to develop and show his wares the remaining 3 games and the playoffs. He wants money and the Ravens need to know IF he can be our QB for the future. I looked at the pay scales for the QBS for 2013. Joe's request would be good for $1-18 mil IF he was on the high end of his performance in consistent game production. This is not true what were the reason. So he as 4 games at least to show his ability. If he would take $12-14 I would have no issue. But if he still wants $16 plus with his game performance, I would franchise him and look at maybe a draft for qb.

Where is Ozzie in the move?


Off-season should be interesting.

Unless Joe really outperforms himself, he is not worth the money he was asking. Now that Canm is fired, I am hoping he proves he is worth that much and more. Wouldn't that be nice?

This is a deciding time to see if Flacco is at fault or if it really was a cam issue which i doubt. Right now joe has been shown the Ravens think he is the man. Now he needs to prove it. We cannot franchise him at any point without losing a few other players so he needs to step it up.

I would have thought Pees would be #1, and most of our OL...

I wonder if people even watch the game

If not Joe Flacco then who? Is there a QB in college we can get, or is there someone sitting on someone else's roster? It took us nearly 12 years to find a young QB with Flacco's talent. The result is 4 years of playoffs and near misses.

Harbs has lead this team to 2 AFC Championship games, and the playoffs every season since arriving, and what looks like to continue that trend as well. A winning record for what? 5 straight seasons? I can't see Harbs being on the hot seat for a winning record.

we also shouldve canned kyle boller after his 1st year, but we didnt. Forcing ourselves to pay a player that is not worth his value and getting rid of key players will be a disaster.

I highly doubt we'd fire a coach who led us to soon-to-be five straight playoff appearances for something as miniscule as clock management, which I actually think he does pretty well.

Cam Cameron was gone beginning of last year but they elected to keep him due to the lock out.

And if not Flacco...who? It's not as if we were a qb factory prior to Joe.
Sometimes I honestly wonder if the people in here actually watched the Ravens prior to 2008.

*Perhaps fond memories of Billick and Boller?????

Dean Pees won't be here next year but it's not all his fault, Also there is no way we get rid of flacco!
Flacco is a good quarterback but is really inconsistant but has the chance to be great.

Lol you'll realize quick that it doesn't matter who we replace Joe with, as long as Joe is here, some of these people won't be happy. We could bring Dilfer out of retirement, and people wouldn't care, as long as Joe's gone.

Yes he will be. I highly doubt we fire him in the offseason. Remember, we kept Mattison around for 3 years. Not to mention, Pees can't help that we've been dealing with injuries over and over again.

The Ravens have had to replace some big time names, JJ, Ray, Ngata, Suggs, Webb and Jimmy, either do to injury or FA at some point this season. No longer can people say Harbs, like Flacco is only winning because of a great defense, but this defense is far from it.

Harbs has lead this predominantly young team to what seems to be it's 2nd straight Divison crown, what could be the 3rd straight 12 win season and it's 5th straight playoff appearance. If his seat is hot, it's only because the heat at the Castle is broken and Harbs has a seat warmer.

Flacco? On the hot seat? What's wrong with some of you guys? Is he perfect, No, but he's a winner. The Ravens as a franchise hasn't had enough good QB play or overall success to be this spoiled to say that Flacco and Harbs should be replaced because they haven't won a Super Bowl.

Flacco led a championship caliber drive against the Redskins and should have put that game away. If that sounds familiar, it should because Flacco does it often. To say this guy is on the hot seat is crazy.

After looking at Arnie's stats on Qb fumbles(a big complaint against Joe cause hes not throwing alot of picks) id say Joe is pretty damn good.

You're probably right, but like i said it's not all his fault . I wouldn't be against it completely, but there are better options out there.

Raven nation is really so spoiled when it comes to winning. You've got people on here baying for Harbaugh's blood, meanwhile there are teams like the Steelers who, at a worse record than us, wouldn't bad mouth Lord Tomlin if they were paid to. I really want John to win the big one so everyone will just be quiet about his 'clock management'.

Uh, no. Flacco is not on the hot seat. He is the QB and he's going to get paid unless he pulls whatever Ratliff pulled on Jones on Biscotti, and even then that's doubtful. Those who hate Flacco need to realize he's not going anywhere yet. I'm not some Flacco cheerleader. I will tell you what he does wrong, which is plenty. But I will not sit here and say he is on the hot seat. He's not.

Caldwell is on the hot seat, but not even by much. He's more auditioning for a higher job as opposed to losing a job. I like him better as interim and find a permanent solution and let him develop Flacco.

Perhaps Moeller. He could be on the hot seat.

But with all this hot seat talk let me ask: who would be better than what we have? There aren't a ton of options out there.
