Let's give #2(Taylor) a chance to try and run the ball for a change.

Why wouldn't Sergio Kindle help our current LB injury problems?

I agree. We should at least get him in the game once in awhile. Not to replace Flacco, just to give Taylor a few snaps, even w/Flacco in the game. We have to find a way to spread out the other teams defense. If they already know whats coming, they just load up the box and come after Flacco, who needs to move around and take off w/that "blazing" speed we saw last week.

Kindle is an OLB. Not sure if he can help, but we used a draft pick on him and if he can't play, or help in some way, we should cut him loose.

i want to see joe roll out and no need to say he can't run,no one would expect him to break one off .honestly i felt like booing and i know joe has to feel bad the media, fans etc have been ripping him apart but the best way to shut them up is to prove them wrong. Go Ravens.

Good artical John.
I just posted similar sentiments on another thread. It's all still pretty exciting, every week. Ya, I like to have the win at the end but every game we get to watch, past the regular season is icing on the cake and we've had plenty of icing over the years.
We already know we have 1 extra game that others won't. Anything else is another bonus.
Can our 3rd, 4th or even 5th stringers come on strong?
Can our wounded vets make a difference?
Will we finally have T-Sizzle AND Ray on the field in the same game?
Like in NASCAR racing, it's much more interesting if you focus isn't solely based on the Winner but in the back story that gets you there.
We have a great group of guys and most of them play their hearts out. It's those guys that I enjoy watching, regardless of the end result because I know they are going to give it their all.
Here's hoping for a "Ray" of sunshine that helps us "Sizzle" Sunday at home!
GO RAVENS!!!!

Most recently Ozzie has struck out with 1st round draft talent. Cody, kindle, and Jimmy smith are the very reason why our defense stinks right now. The were supposed to fill holes but now we are still trying to fill holes at those same positions.

On offense we drafted Oher, Reid, KO, Harewood, gradkowski, and cousins.

None of them are playing their natural position or they are still on the bench watching!
We must draft OLine high or we will get the same results.

QB cant stay on his feet and NOW NO Holes for Rice to run through.

@The Voice: Cody and Kindle were 2nd round picks, not 1st. Jimmy is still young and has the potential.

Outside, QB has 5 turnovers in 3 games, inside perpare the QB to not do that again. Giants may be last in pass rush this year but they won't look like it playing against us. Protect the ball inside out.

When B McKinnie and Harewood were playing, we were winning. Where are they now? How come they are not playing. Yeah, I know, the Doghouse treatment...

What a load of nonsense. Hey John, I'm going to get in my car that leaks oil like a sive and drive across country. I'm not gonna worry about those past problems with my wheels, I'm just gonna make sure I have a good map, gps and have arranged my sleeping places along the way.

Except I most likely won't get there because I was to stupid to look at the past problems and fix them or compensate for them or realize they may just abruptly stop me from getting to my destenation.

Inside, outside nonsense, if you want to be successful at anything you have to do both. Understand the past and also focus on the present with reality. Magical thinking creates or continues a host of problems and keeps you stuck in mediocrity.

Inside, outside --- please...

I sure hope we bounce back and make our run were almost getting healthy. Gradkowski looks ready to me also he bulked up and have some experince under his belt we need to shuffle the o line or were in trouble mckinnie is not the best but were making him feel like ogden lol we know mckinnie struggles a lil but he looked fine to me last yr we just need a left tackle to b a eclipse right now and he can do it it will take atleast 5 seconds to run around him in pass protect and thts all we need sumthings gotta give cause harbs is being out coached right now i beilive

I don't think it's a good idea to forget the last game, or the game before, or the game before...it's how you learn..or supposed to, and it's human nature to go back in your mind, even if you don't admit it. Learn, focus on the Giants then kick their [butts].

@mhurd11 I know, thats why I said 1st round draft talent. They were graded as 1st round talent according to Oz. Either way they have been bust so far. 1st and 2nd round talent should have almost immediate impact! I'm not saying make the pro bowl but cody kindle smith been non existent on the field!

What I find particularly offensive about this article is how the author so shamelessly generalizes. Mr. Eisenberg, I've got news for you: we fans are different. And I, for one, do take offense in baing considered the same as those who have clearly no idea at all how an NFL franchise is run and managed. You don't need too much insider info and experience to have a kind of insight, since an NFL franchise is largely like any other company: the economical and financial principles are the same. Some fans clearly haven't a clue, but others have absolutely clear and correct insights and ideas.

You know, Mr. Eisenberg, I've read some bad, bad pieces of journalism in my life. That won't make me think your articles are bad though, just because you're a journalist too - because that would be unfair generalization, which is, in most cases, bad and misleading.

Lewis will not be playing. Let's hope Yanda can be in there battling it out in the trenches. RR has not looked good with this recent O-Line situation!!

Well better luck on the next article Mr. Eisenberg. You lost on this one.

Now if you follow the philosophy you said all players take then you shouldn't ever read this article again ;)

And thats the problem! You dont dwell on the past but you must learn from it."Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it"(George Santayana)!An old saying that seems to have relevance now and appears to the problem with the coach,gm,and qb of the Ravens.Remember 52 joe? No,not Ray but the number of fumbles you have had in less than 5 years at qb! House cleaning time!

Two and a half hours until we find out if WE save the roster spot another week or get help from the practice squad for this week&the Giants. Insiders could release a WR or TE when Lewis is as fit as possible for the playoffs but the run defense needs a fresh LB now. If not now for Sergio Kindle...............when?
