Flacco throwing for 5ints wasn't a pretty sight, but we lost by ONLY 3 points to a up an coming Bills team, on the road. Our defense has SHOCKED ME! I didn't expect these guys to come around and play this well so soon in the season and the crazier thing is that, barring any major injuries, THEY WILL ONLY GET BETTER! That's scary..
Our offense hasn't played too bad, our play calling(IMO could be a bit better... Only two runs in the second half of a game in which we were down by only 13 with 30 mins left to play ) and our offensive line has been TREACHEROUS! They are not giving Joe a clean pocket to step into and deliver the ball to our play makers nor are they moving guys off of the line of scrimmage to give Rice/Pierce any room to operate.
The fact that our TE's are playing like they are the only players playing at the beach (running in sand with wet hands) and Joe doesn't have a Boldin or Pitta to throw a jump Ball to when he's in trouble, is showing in our offense AT THIS MOMENT.
If our offensive line can improve their play and I believe that we have the coaching staff to fix the problem, we WILL be a very dangerous team. Our organization has a motto that anytime our players put on that uniform they have to PLAY LIKE A RAVEN, which is discipline smash mouth football.
With the first quarter of the season down, we've shaken off the cob webs and we're in a position to make our 6th consecutive post season. As I mentioned earlier, it's not about how you start but about how you finish!!!
