Billick must go. How many more years must we put up with his miserable offensive genius. QB's have been changed, offensive linemen have been changed, wide receivers, offensive coordinators, running backs but still the same pathetic offensive. The one constant in this misery has been Billick. Time to end it and get rid of him. We all know that Marvin Lewis won the Super Bowl, not Billick.

It was somewhat appropriate that this shellacking took place in Pittsburgh last night with the 75th anniversary celebration at Heinz Field. History always repeats itself, when after the rise and fall of the vaunted "Steel Curtain" Steelers in the early 80's, the rest of the league eventually caught up. The truth be told, at one time the Ravens were a team to be reckoned with, but over time, will gradually slip into mediocrity. The truth is, that NOBODY is afraid to play the Baltimore Ravens anymore. History does indeed repeat itself.......

Dear Fans,
It has come to this. I will continue to embarass this team until I am bought out of my contract. I told you in the beginning weeks it was my intentions to receive a huge buy out and walk away from the game with a fat paycheck. I will spin this lost as much as I can. Please find a way to get marty-ball in bmore so your team can rebound and go to Tampa for the superbowl next year. martyballnbmore.com

Your defense cannot cannot play against the opposition and your offense. Shut it down Ray and wait one more season. Marty will be hired and at least give us a chance in the playoffs next year (14 wins)

True raven fans knew what happened last nite was what we expected. This team plays really terrible in wet conditions. McNair needs to retire, Billick needs to go, and the whole team needs a pay cut. The fans will support this team but we will be very unhappy

I believe McNair is done.
At Least Boller can try a long pass.

The only thing Baltimore did better than Pittsburgh last night was talk trash and make themselves look stupid.
Ray-Ray, you're D has given up 35, quit talking and tackle someone....

BB is an idiot. He won't run for short yardage against losing teams, but tries to stuff the ball down the Steelers throat all night. Of course when you have ANOTHER quarterback who came to Baltimore to die what else can you do. The team played with no heart and deserved to lose.

We are made up of players that use to be great, when infact their time has passed.

Guess the Titans were right to get rid of McNair.

Oh, thanks for the loss, as a Ravens fan living in Pittsburgh my life was hard enough.

what an absolute thing of beauty last night - a beatdown to one of the most classless organizations ever to be asseblembled in league history - and to still be mouthing and strutting when being hammered - what a bunch of posers. I have never had more pleasure viewing a sporting event than the 3 hours my Steelers game me last night - THANK YOU PITTSBURGH!!!!!

That was very painful to watch. Just when you think you hit rock bottom.....I think Mel Blount said it best when he described the Ravens as "pathetic.....embarrassin g". And to rebut Derrick Mason, you guys DIDN'T compete. What game were you watching?

I love how Raven's fans blame Billick for the loss. Instead of aimless ranting, let's look at this objectively.

1. Mcnair's been horrible and ineffective since he blew the Colt's playoff game. I think it all started with this, and his addiction to turnovers.

2. The Raven's lost one of the top orners in the league in McCallister, and a solid 2nd corner in Rolle, and go to probably the worst secondary in the entire NFL in Ivy and Martin. Ivy's a warrior, but he stinks as a corner, and Martin looked like he reacted to thrown passes 15 seconds after the ball was caught. Does anyone really think the Raven's had much of a chance with this ridiculously horrible secondary? Come on Raven's fans! It's not happening with these guys! Vince Lombardi couldn't make a difference on these MAJOR factors!

Is this the same team that was talking SuperBowl before the season? Hahaha! Ravens stink, and I'm loving it!

Seemed like a box of Goobers and Ravenettes to me! Course anytime the "jailbirds" go down it's a good day.

Ravenettes, perhaps a new team nickname?

McNair has to go. He looks like he is in Iraq with all his Body Protection on. He is flat footed, has no arm and is easily read. The Corners Sucked. Turnovers Killed us. We have to get back to basics and learn to tackle. Big Ben was in the grasp and got away too many times. I don't understand why Suggs can't hit someone when the ball is in play as well as he can after the whistle blows. Cheap shots don't win games. Injuries or so called injuries; Whats this all about. Two weeks off and we are still without McAllister, Rolle and Heap? If you don't wanna play get outta town overpriced pansies. And Rolle, whats up with him. An undisclosed illness. Our strength and conditioning program is the league's worst. Come on BB and SB, get some players who can play and wanna play. And please, dont bring MB to Baltimore. Follow the Steelers lead and get a Tomlin or someone fresh and intense.

There is no "O" in RAVENS......nor "D" for that matter.
That Brian Billick is one offensive genius, and what an arm that Steve McNair has, wow, he can really deliver the ball down field. If this had been a PeeWee game they would have called it at half time under the mercy rule.

After coming off a week's bye the offense genius head coach you think may have misdirected plays or at least a halfback pass -- maybe a several attempted bombs by sending out only 2 receivers--It became evident that Mcnair has aged fast- maybe all that body armor he wears makes him immobilized-I think we should trade him and Boller for Eric Anderson
