Once again, the "fumble" that the Ravens recovered was on a dropped handoff and Flacco was the one that pounced on it. Stop being dishonest about Flacco. That's twice tonight.

Flacco also missed a wide open Heap in the endzone on consecutive plays. One on a check down with little pressure and the other went wide right. Overall he's been pretty steady and should keep the starting job barring a complete meltdown. As always , Defense impressed.

Preton trying to start something again? Cmac needed to sit down today. After last week he should apoligize to the fans and his team mates.Preston should stick with the game and shut up with information from his raven buddies. Fans will be happy when he moves on like rosenthal. Hope he takes steele with him.

GET OFF THE KID'S BACK!! Seriously, what is your problem?! He completed almost 75% of his passes for over 230 yards and a TD. He continued to run the no-huddle well and cleaned up McGahee's blunder.

Flacco is white, that's the problem.

Mike you missed a criticism of Flacco. How about the pass to Heap he should have thrown but didn't then, the next play, missed him wide open in the endzone by a mile.

Mike, your a racist a-hole and an idiot too. You just don't like Flacco because he is starting in front of a black guy, period. Why don't you man up and just admit it.

if troy smith or any other black qb we have ever had played like flacco did today you would have anointed him as the second coming. you are the most prejudice writer ever to write. youre not voting for obama are you mike by any chance?

who gives a crap about anything but CMAC in this article. I want to know what the hell the coach is thinking stirring up some controversey . That guy filling in for Chris talks so much trash but can't back it up. He's embaressing to have out on that field. I rather have prude in the starting line up. Nuff' said!

The NFL likes it when the wideouts cheap shot other players. They don't draw flags for it they make highlight reels. Didn't you see Hines Ward up to his usual tricks on the highlight shown during the game. The refs just love him and don't flag him. The booth tells us every game what a genuine nice guy he is. How long did you think it would take for the rest of the wideouts to copy his style of play.

A 120 QB rating, and Flacco gets a B- and other criticism from Preston, includint the near interception, which Mason himself says was his fault becasue he didn't run his route. I guess Mike has been promised a position with OBama's PR campaign if he can show his mettle.

The Hines Ward hit was legal, he was blocking as Moore went around the left side. That's part of football.

Personally, I thought the "fumble" was McGahee's fault (as t.v. analyst Steve Buerlein thought so, also). And I still think McGahee's too soft as a runner -- he crumbles like feta cheese.

The Ravens may not be able to compete versus the better teams, but they're still a lot of fun to watch -- as opposed to last year's train wreck.

If Harbough is going to coach by a "get back at the player" philosophy, he needs to "man up". I m weary of these questionable benching of players and what appears to be a less than honest response about the reason. I thought Harbough was a better man than this.

Cmac is slow.
Does not practise hard.
Needs to be towed in now and again.
Harbaugh defended him last week after that abysmal display of cornerback.
He has not called him out now.
He simply is telling him in the right manner, Chris, you ain't getting any younger. You need to work harder like Ray to stay at this level when you lose a step. I will not show you up or talk you down, but I will not lose because of your habits and declining skills either. Harbaugh is a real football coach living his vision of TEAM, not just talking the talk. Chris will be gone next year along with Bart, probably Heap, Rolle , and a few other guys who are not "his type of guys". Go Harbaugh.
