Don't know how it looked on TV, but at the game, this was horrible.

The starting OL was horrendous. Bobbie Williams hold to negate a first down run sufficiently ended a drive in the first half. Oher was beaten seemingly every play, despite Flacco not getting sacked. Couldn't run block, couldn't pass protect.

The secondary was likewise beaten. Cary Williams was abused, although Jimmy Smith I thought looked good in his limited work. It was painful to see Williams give up yet another first down, then with the guy out of bounds, violently throw him to the ground for an obvious penalty. That's not how you "play like a Raven".

The linebackers that filled in did as best they could, but Brendan will never be more than a special teamer and Bynes looked overmatched often. Glad to see McPhee get a sack, but the line struggled to stop the run, maintain gap control, or get penetration.

Flacco looked lost, as he has far too common this year. Seriously need to build something up in the draft. I don't care what it takes, we need Manti Te'o. Flacco is losing flavor with me very quickly, very quickly.

@ravenisthebest7 - Yes I would love to have the linebacker out of ND. And you are preaching to the choir about your support of Joe Flacco :(

Flacco and Harbaugh, who has a worse explanation for the loss? The same ol' cr@p beind fed to us. Start benching players if they do not execute as there have been numerous execution issues. Will someone please have the guts to call things out like Ed Reed does?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

Can't believe how we got handled today by Denver!, but with how our depleted D played I give them credit for trying to hang in there and wait for the Offense to wake up. Cam is gone and Flacco is still not getting it done and staring down where he is throwing the ball..smh,next Sunday I hope is better

THAT is what REAL coaches and QBs' do. Flacco, if you want to get paid like the man, well, start "being the man" and LEAD the team. I think leadership is something ANY QB knows that they HAVE to have. Geesh...

I had a guy work for me like this one time. Always had an excuse for fouling up. I suspected him of drinking on the job for months and months. Then one day I just fired him and never felt better.

@BoominRaven - I agree. At some point you have to at least fool the fans that you are hurt when you lose. Too many of these new school coaches have the same demeanor. It's like they all have the same public speaking coach. Even though we make jokes about Dennis Green, Herm Edwards, and Jim Mora, but those old school coaches didn't try to act like a lost was ok as soon as the game was over. You work your butt off for a week to win a game and when you lose it should hurt.

The 3 outs and turnovers,kept our defense on the field too long.The back-up players were playing at a very high level.Joe failed to make clean throws and killed both sides of the ball.

Flacco does not seem like he cares. He looks as if he is on downers when he is in the game. No pocket awareness AT ALL. Harbs, be a man and start calling things out! Like Ed Reed does. No more sugar coating. This is a man's league and that was not "just football", that was "Terrible football".

1000% agree!!

Harbs makes it seem like its normal, no big deal. He should be the next to go.

I always felt Harbaugh was in over his head. He had some excellent players who were leaders thenmselves like Ray Lewis that made him look good. Now, not so much.

Don't get me wrong I still love my Ravens and believe we can at least win one game in the playoffs, but this game was strictly about how Flacco would perform without Cam Cameron calling the shots. I would assume that Flacco had a chance to put his input on the game plan. Maybe things will get better, but as of today all of the pressure is on Flacco because there is no Cam to blame this week. When you make comments like you are "the best QB in the NFL" you have to walk to walk if you talk the talk. Yes Ray Lewis talks the talk but that guy walks the walk.

I wouldn't mine watching a team who went 0-16 if they were getting better each week. This stuff is the other way around. And it sucks.

I'm not happy with the run game, as soon as rice gets the ball the hole closes. Pierce has been doing a nice job

@drillem - And the reason they didn't hire Rex because he was too outspoken. Well you need a coach that's not afraid to call their players out.

Just keeping it real here. Look at Flacco's numbers for the last 5yrs. Then, can the garbage about him having a great defense that got the wins. Flacco is not as bad as this we've been seeing recently. Something is obviously wrong. My guess is it has something to do with his contract expiring. Not Flacco himself. Nor the OC. And, definitely not a Squeelers curse (i'm still lmbo about that one). Bottomline? Pay the man. And watch him return to form when all this is outta the way. Keep grinding Joe. Go Ravens!!! :) #RealTalk #RavensNation

I have been a Flacco supporter from the beginning, and I still think that if we get our offensive line fixed that Flacco can be be very good. But right now it looks like Flacco is regressing each week. This is the third week in a row where Flacco has had 2 turn overs. We cannot win like that. The turn overs have led to all three losses. We need this FIXED NOW!!!

I don't think money is the issue with Flacco, paying him big bucks won't fix our o-line

Why are rookie QBs having a better season than Joe?.......
[/quote]They are all getting better protection then Joe. Our offensive line has been terrible and Joe is regressing. Fix the line and we fix the offense.

Ed, you should be embarrassed, this is the 2[sup]nd[/sup] or 3[sup]rd[/sup] time someone has hurdled you in a game. Are your eyes opened when you attempt to tackle??

Succo, you shoulda pulled yourself from the game. That was a 3[sup]rd[/sup] string performance. Makes me wish we kept C. Painter on the practice squad. Looks like it’s Tyrod Taylor Time; at least if we lose with him it’s understandable.

@FitzaFlaccoFan - Not being elite wouldn't be so bad if you can win Super Bowls without one. Look at the QBs from the last 8 or 9 years that has won a super bowl. They are the elite qbs in the league. And I can only think of two that has made it to the super bowl in that time frame and was a losing qb and still wasn't elite.
