      UPDATED: MESSAGE BOARDS CLOSING AFTER DRAFT   03/08/2017

      After careful consideration, we have decided that we will sunset our message boards after this year's NFL Draft. Since we opened our boards a decade ago, the digital landscape has greatly evolved. While we understand there remains a smaller group of highly-engaged fans who participate in conversation in our forums, a significant amount of the dialogue about our team and our games has migrated away to other social media platforms over the past several years. Our message boards will remain up and running through Friday, May 5th, and will be removed on May 6th. We recognize that this change may upset avid members of our community. However, we look to utilize our time and resources to focus on how we can best connect with our fans across an array of digital/social outlets. If you are not already engaging us and other members of the Ravens Flock on our Facebook page, Instagram account, through Twitter or Snapchat, we invite you to follow us on those channels and continue to participate in our social communities. In addition, the commenting feature on our website articles will remain intact. Members will be able to continue using their boards account to log in and share their thoughts at the bottom of every news story. We’d like to thank all the Flock members and our moderators who have brought thoughtful conversation to this space and made our community great for the last 10 years. Ravens Social Media Hub »

Must stop the penalties

11 posts in this topic

I was at the game today. It wasnt as exciting of course as other games I have been to, but it was cool nonetheless just because i got to see tyrod running around out there live. and he scored at the end zone i was sitting closest to and i got some nice video.

but

the entire game was just killed by our penalties. bobbie williams, KO, whoever. If Harbaugh wants to treat this game like a preseason game, cool, but at least have the backups prepared to play and pay attention. i know we are somewhere near the worst in penalty yards, but giving away multiple drives because of penalties will ruin the playoffs. so many holding flags, false starts. dumb offensive line penalties really need to be cut down

Penalties, yes, and personal foul ones at that! We look like a dirty team at times. There's no reason for some of those fouls, other than just lack of self-discipline. I agree that the penalties need to stop this week.

If the skins / cowboys can go (at this point) can go into the fourth quarter with NO penalties any one can do it.

What gets me is, how long did they spend cleaning up the penalties .. getting the team more disciplined. It looks like we're right back to where we were. I figure some of that is due to the injuries. Backups getting more playing time, people playing out of position. You tend to hold and do stupid stuff when you are being beaten or are playing a bit above your head.

But some of it, as you said, was just stupid. Giving a guy a little knee push for no reason and getting a 15-yard personal foul. Use your heads.

That was stupid as was the late hit on the qb that kept a drive alive. Granted, both were ticky-tack. Bit I swear refs look for that kind of stuff on our team. Don't even give them a chance to throw a flag guys.

Yes. I forgot to mention that the Bengals fans werent even that loud yesterday and we were still getting false starts just as often as usual. The stadium was pretty dead as far as noise, should have been like a practice.
