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!!!!

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.

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 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].

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.

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!

So, by your reckoning Joe hasn't played a bad game that he can remember this season?

So, the coaches say "Gee, wasn't there something we wanted to work on from our last offensive exercise in inconsistency?" But I get what you're saying, nobody knows for sure which "Joe E-Lite" or "I believe in Eli" will show up!

I just hope there's plenty of TV Timeouts,... our defense is forced to rely upon them for a breather!

Clearly forgetting the previous game isn't such a good idea seeing as Flacco has lost a fumble and has been picked off in each of our last 3 losses. Sounds like they need to remember not to make those same mistakes again.

I really think that we will win one of the last two games. I hope it is tomorrow so we can start the what-ifs from last year all over again.

Fans can't rant and [profanity deleted] about the upcoming game. I don't think Lombardi, Landry, nor Shula just got over "last week's game" that easy. Especially Lombardi who passed away with stomach cancer.

I sincerely hope Flacco does not forget how bad he has been over the last 3 games. But, he seems so oblivious to his surrounding it can be both a blessing and a curse. The only thing that he needs to change is not to be oblivious to a pass rush! He has become incredibly oblivious to the pass rush and also open receivers lately! Not good Flacco - not good! Be aware!

Shouldnt figuring out what went wrong the previous game be a part of preparing for the next one? Those who forget the past and all....

Oh my God....What is wrong with Eisenbergs brain? Did he really write that this is the same team that won 15 in a row at the bank? What? Sorry chief, this is NOT the same team, or teams. Most fans would admit that we were a lucky 9 win team. Not a debate, just a fact from watching HOW we won games playing poorly, and escaping with some wins. Sure we deserve to get some breaks, but HOW you win sometimes is important to the overall evaluation of your team. As far as fans looking at the last game, and so-called insiders looking ahead....maybe it would serve them to look a little longer at the last games because if you ignore the past, you are destined to repeat it....Now Mr.Eisenberg, you can climb down off your high horse, and realize that it doesn't take an expert to evaluate certain things....just watch some tape.

The team should quickly move on and prepare for the next opponent and not dwell on the past BUT they have to take it into consideration. There’s an old saying, “If you don’t learn from your past you’re bound to repeat it.” Us “outsiders” have nothing else to do but to bask in the last state the team leaves us in. Win convincingly and all is right in Ravenstown; win by comeback and really happy; win ugly and barely hold on and there will be consternation; lose a close one and there will be disappointment; lose via butt kickin and Ravenstown is burning; lose 3 in a row and it’s time to rebuild!! It is what it is!?!?

Does bounce back mean more 3 and outs and throws that can only be caught by 7 foot NBA players.If so the Ravens have bounced back every week and done it very well

Of course it is not the same team, duh! We have more injuries then healthy players to play football but yet we are in the playoffs. NEVER say NEVER to the Ravens. I do not expect a big performance but I do expect to see Ravens football. Win or lose the Ravens will give it their all. Go Ravens.

the ravens have played horribly the past couple of weeks and as a result were now backing our way into the playoffs. you can say they've moved on but the fact remains; they're a injury riddled team who is limping into the playoffs. #noexcuses

I understand what John is saying but if the coaches don't spend at least a little bit of time analyzing some of the negatives and positives of the previous wins and losses, it seems to me the mistakes made in the losses could end up reoccuring and the positives of the wins may get forgotten.
