Oh, we get your best from here on out, huh Below Average Joe? They need to sit your butt down and see what Taylor can do. Hope your agent was watching the last few weeks.Maybe he'll give up on his demand for "top five" money and go for top six now? We need a QB who is a leader and plays w/fire in his belly and that sure isn't you.

@Sugar Ray......you may be on to something. He has more of a baseball attitude, anyway, plus, he can't throw the ball to the other team and wouldn't have to move around much. Perfect fit. Great idea.

Im just going to say " IM SICK OF LOSING " , we are not the BROWNs

This team is just finding ways to lose, first it was the Defense and now its the Offense.

Im guessing next week, it will be special teams. Been waiting for J.Jones to muff a punt this season ( i really hope he doesnt)

I just don't remember ever, this team just losing like this with such bad luck, bad decision making, coaching. I could go on and on.

Maybe us fans won't boo so much if A) Flacco doesn't throw INTs at the endzone, B) Flacco doesn't throw away from the wideouts when they're open and C) when wideouts and tight ends (Pitta, you too) actually catch the ball when its thrown to them.

Oh well, maybe next week will be much better.

I became fan of this team since i was a little kid because of Ray Lewis And Ed Reed, latter they came suggs Ngata J.J and some others important players to me, mason, clayton, heap there are much players since the start of this team that were admirable and played with a lot of PRIDE, it didnt matter who was the HC the DC the Oc didnt matter cause every guy that had the chance to play wanted to proove they were the best, today Football is dif..., now it counts a lot if you like the HC, OC, and DC, if you like them well you play well if you dont... you know... NOW i believe we have a great HC john Hargbaugh i do, and i believe we have a great Oc Jim Caldwell, he can manage every position he wants to, this year was a bad season FO, didnt hire a good OC since the start and that is hurting us, we have much proiblems in the defense too, SO i know Mr. steve Biscotti will fire some coaches, staff, and players, you know how it is, and hes a great bussinesssss man! and more important a great FAN like us of our team and he wants to give us wins and the best hi can do... so ravens fix your problems start acting like grown ups ( OFFENSIVE PLAYERS ) and some in def too...

You're darn right we get to Boo!

We don't have the option to give any input in team meetings, in conferences and such, so guess what,... the fans at M&T Bank gave "input" on our comatose Offense - and, it was heard by the people who needed to hear it!

And,... Dallas gave us the playoff berth considering we couldn't get the job done THREE TIMES!

I support the Booing 100%!

When is this knucklehead going to realize that he doesn't have a top 5 defense this year? He needs to realize that the only way the Ravens are going to win is through him. Just like any other team who wants to win a Super Bowl, your QB has to carry your team, Why do people think they get paid so much? I just wish he would say, " It starts with me, I need to play better if we want to win, there's no excuse they way I've been playing". I could respect him for that.

The way I look at is Cam's conservative play calling kept Flacco in check. It prevented Joe from making foolish mistakes (like yesterday) giving games away to the opposition from wild gun slinging QB!! Flacco needs to be controlled not unleashed!!!!!!!!!

[size=4][sub]I think Joe has enormous potential and would hate to see him traded into a system that allows him to reach his full potential. So, I am just throwing this out there for grins: How about we trade Joe to the Jets for Tebow...then he would only haunt us when he takes the Jets to the playoffs! And Tebow would be great as a Raven!!![/sub][/size]

Zeus, I really believe that our very proud, very battered defense will show up!

I also believe that if Joe doesn't get his head and rump wired together, the defense will be picked apart late to the same result as Sunday past!

Answer? Maybe!

Anyone else sad at the emptiness of the Bank after only a handful of losses? What is it with people? It's the team and Franchise that's given us five years full of things to brag about...and we abandon ship so soon after what is clearly a year going through hard times for our guys

No one is asking us to root for failure, but atleast a pinch of loyalty might be nice.

Fans boo because players and coaches are getting paid a lot of money to stink at their jobs. The defense is banged up, but they are not very good without Webb, Suggs and Ellerbe anyway. The left side of the O line is a joke. Jah Reid is awful. Oher is not a left tackle. Flacco is terrible under pressure. Harbaugh makes questionable game time decisions. So...BOO!

I think Flacco has just been trying to force things recently because the offense has been so inconsistent and the receivers rarely get open. Last night, Tom Brady missed more open receivers than Flacco has during the entire losing streak. Remember, Flacco had gone about 2 years without throwing a redzone int, so it's not like he's been a turnover prone qb until the last few games. When things go badly, qbs can try too hard to make a play and commit stupid turnovers. It happens, even to the great ones. He knows better than to make that throw that ended up being a pick six, and I expect him to get back to being reliable in the redzone. He still has 20 tds and 10 ints this year, which is pretty good considering the tight windows he always has to throw into because of the lack of separation from the receivers. The Ravens are still running Cam's system and playbook, which doesn't involve many quick passes, which they need right now because of the O-line. The fans should be booing Harbaugh for waiting until it's too late to fire Cam. They are pretty much stuck with his system until next year.

If Flacco doesn't show any improvement soon I think that John Harbaugh might give his brother a call and see about getting Alex Smith over here.

I might be to aggressive with my comment but it's becuase of the performance that I saw my team give yesterday.

I mean there performance on offense was so lame and non chalant that I wasn't even getting mad like I usually do. It was almost like our team gave up on themselves.

This is bad.

I don't enjoy hearing our fans boo the home team. It strikes me as rude and classless. I have never booed the team but have supported them throughout their struggles. I would be embarassed had I been at that game. Bears fans boo their team but we shouldn't stoop to their level.

[i]The boo birds were out and the stadium was more than half empty midway through the fourth quarter when the game's result was all but final.

Fans booed the offense as it came off the field during its five three-and-outs to start the game. [u][b]It booed again when the offense came back on the field following quarterback Joe Flacco's game-breaking interception returned for a touchdown.[/b][/u][/i]

^ the boo birds were out at my house early starting with Flacco's fumble. and then i had them ringing loudly with that pick 6 he threw. Flacco's game play makes you go from saying "Yeaaah!" one minute to saying; "What the.....?" the next! this dude! smh!

Of course we have a right to boo. When you have Professionals performing like that, then yeah. You have people giving up on plays and playing like they are out in the back yard. I blame the Head Coach. We seem to have a problem being prepared for games and show a lack of discipline. That hasn't changed since Harbaugh got here. This piss poor play starts from the top.

Look we're not healthy, homefield advantage isn't helping any, maybe it's time to seriously consider winning this thing 2000-style? Don't play any defender with injuries these next two games but condition them in practice, and don't worry about winning the next two, just let Cladwell jell with the offense and Flacco prepare himself for the playoffs.

If we've done it once, we can do it again. And we aren't the only ones, our next opponent has won theirs on the road.

Force Flacco to audible silently (pun intended) at home to prepare for hostile environments.

As far as the whole booing thing goes, I don't get it. What's that going to do to help the cause ? I'll answer my own question. Nothing !!!

As fans I feel like we're in it together with the team, so to boo is just plain asinine.

Just thinking that I am old enough to remember what drove the Colts out of town.. Bad players, bad losses, a drunken owner, old stadium...oh yeah booing too. Some better things happen eventually like 13 years later. Maybe the Orioles will become the popular franchise again..maybe 10 years of losing and exorbitant prices will keep everyone home. Why win a SuperBowl when people will become complacent and spoiled. Love your family everyday and treat your team with respect. The true fans have been through all of this before...the old adage of "you get what you deserve" may apply here.

Oh, so now we have people telling us we don't have the right to or shouldn't boo. Thats funny. There's so much I could say in response, but its not allowed on here. We'll boo when its called for and don't need to be told its rude,etc. Get real. We have players, some making a half million or even a million a game,playing like college guys and we shouldn't boo them? Hilarious.

Tough to watch our self proclaimed loyal fans leave. You're loyal you stick it out. No if ands or buts about it. I was there, and i stayed until the final whistle. It's easy to stay at games when we're winning, to stay there when we're losing is what makes a fanbase great. I did not see a great fan base yesterday, and that disappoints me.

Everybody needs a kick in the butt every now and then. If the coaches aren't doing it then the fans certainly will with boos. Every sport, every city.
Just a fact.

Please, tell us it's a joke.

Why do you think the entire NFL-scene is laughing at Tebow?

If you don't know, you can hear it at the beginning of every Rich Eisen podcast:

"Tebow has the fiery leadership of Ray Lewis with the throwing abilities of... Ray Lewis."

If it's still not enough, exhibit #2: Tebow is the backup of Mark Sanchez - and hasn't managed to unseat one of the least productive QB's of the NFL...

Flacco is a QB. Tebow is a hype.

Don't believe the hype.

And now the spotlight goes to Mr. Joe Flacco, Joe Cool, Unflappable Flacco.....the man who said he is a top five QB...
It is obvious to me Jim Caldwell did not make Payton Manning what he is, Payton is playing lights out like he always did without Jim...Payton could have went anywhere and improved a team.
Our offense is what it is because of Joe " well mostly".

Look at other veteran QB'S and the rookie QB'S that show their emotions....they scramble and run for yards when nothing is there. When QB'S get excited and fight for yards, the rest of the offense follows suit. Joe "IMHO" just doesnt get the offense pumped up.

I give everyone the right to do what ever they want. I just want to throw in my two cents. Boo's are not specific and everyone hears them. There were several players who did not deserve to hear boo's. Sizzle who was playing his heart out in pain. Kruger who has been ballin his but off. The third and fourth string players who were playing the best they can ( they are 3rd and 4th stringers for a reason). BOldin who gave evrything he had out there. This is our team. That is like coming home and booing your dad if he got fired. Or booing your kid becuase they failed a class. We win with dignity we should loose with dignity. Ravens in a lost I applaud you for playing hard. Our team has been decimated with injuries that no team can withstand. I ride or die for my Ravens!

Think about what you do for a living and you are having a really bad day some of it you some if it things you can't control would you like half the world saying you are a subhuman and suck?
Flacco can't control the line and the fact he has less then 2 seconds to throw, he can't control the ball going through his receivers hands, he owned up to the int. I feel like the man can't win with the fans.
I was at the game yesterday and the last one I went to that bad was against Indy in 2007-- it was at night and sleeting. As a fan base we have come to expect a lot in the last 5 years but with the injuries and the beyond suspect O line you get what we saw yesterday.

I agree even Flacco gave it 100 percent trying to chase down the guy who intercepted the ball at the end of the half. The Broncos also had the most 3 and outs this year. The effort is there just the execution isn't Ialso believe timeouts should have been used before the half just to slow it down and get some good playcals in there and why leave 3 TO's on the table. This is coaching error.
