Jamison Hensley article depicts 3 worst and 3 best narritives of Boller's deeds. The graphics show the worst in a 6x7 photo and the best in a 4x4 inch photo. Where is the equality ? Looks like you are hanging him out to dry before the fist snap. Another example of the Sun's slanted journalism.

Boller's BEST depends on the Ravens Wide Receivers getting OPEN ~ early and often....and breaking tackles once they have caught the ball. Let's hope that we see that on Sunday against the Browns!

His game against the Vikings in 2005 was a great one also. However, his body of work is shaky and for every good performance, the Ravens will get one or two bad ones.

Give him a break and lets see what he can do the rest of the season...against some of the best teams in the NFL, not the easy schedule we had so far.

Wait, wait,wait, wait, wait.....48-3?????? That's got to be a misprint. MAYBE 4-3 SOUNDS MORE LIKE IT....unless of-course billick was deactivated for that week.

I'm pretty hopeful that this move can at least get more points on the board. All we need is 22 points to win most games. If he can keep turnovers down below our now-usual 5-6, we'll be able to get wins as well. Boller has it in him, and we have to be optimistic that Boller has learned something about winning and composure from Steve. Steve IS a winner despite his current form. Boller has played well standing in for this team the last 2 seasons. He wasn't bad at Buffalo, but the play calling left him out to dry, so there's always hope...even if it is in Boller.

Jamison also left out the game when Boller went on the road (after Green Bay Monday Night Game) and lit it up against Minnesota. Lets remember its not just going to be Boller this weekend. It will be about pass protection and how well Willis can run the ball. Most important WR's getting open and catching the ball

Boller worst was never as bad as McNair has been this year. The kid can do it. It would help to have time in the pocket. Boller has never had the system or tools.

How did Boller become the goat? Is this the artful work of the defense,receivers, and offensive line?You've all watched Washington and our own Mayor Schaefer long enough to know how to place blame on others.

If that is the best of Boller? No thank you!

Sure he had a gamewinner.He was also very close to loosing that game, a game we controlled... and then ineffecient play.by Boller lots of 3 and out, fumbles.

I thought the game Kyle had last year against Carolina was awesome. We ended up losing but that was a day in which Steve Smith had 189 yards and was ALL OVER THE FIELD. Jake Delhome also had a career day, but Kyle almost brought us back after a whole day of NOTHING from McNair.

Yup.

This article is good, except it fails to note a few key games in his career that should go in the "Best" column.

Such as the 4 TD, 0 INT game against a rookie Eli Manning and his NY Giants. How's that for starters? That's his BEST career game, and it wasn't mentioned.

Or as someone else said, what about the 3 TD, 1 INT effort against a desperate and ON FIRE Vikings team, who had started the season like sh*t, and then went on a hot streak. They were one game out from the playoffs, and they had to go through us. Thanks in large part to Boller's brilliant TD for TD play, we made that game a battle, and eventually put them away, killing their playoff dreams.(And subsequently probably costing Mike Tice his job....)

And let's not forget that while they mentioned it, they failed to mention that Boller leading the 48-3 effort over the Packers was the biggest point deficit in Monday Night Football history.

And yes, his game last year against the Panthers was also a brilliant performance. His haters tried to pass those two TDs to Clayton as "fluke tip offs", but the fact is, if they HADN'T been tipped, they were right on the money in the first place. And besides that, that's football, half of a great TD pass is the QB making the right pass, and half of it is the WR making a big play on it. He kept us in that game, when the Panthers were still playing good, and we only lost by 2 points.

And let's not forget, his game against the Jets this season is worth noting as well, because his 2 TD, 0 INT performance is a clear illustration of his ability when he actually has PASS PROTECTION. His other two starts, he didn't have that protection, and was running around all day, and kissing dirt half the time.

Point is, give him protection, he'll do well. And if he can even average 2 TDs a game for the rest of the season, he'd still have about 17 TDs on the season, which would not only be his personal best, but is pretty damn good for ANY QB.
