I'd take another loss if it would insure the firing of Billick. "Show me the frame of film before you say anybody on this team has not played hard..." etc. The defense played its heart out against the Patriots, only to have one of Brian's knuckle headed assistants call a time out and throw the game. Since then, the whole team has quit, and who can blame them when their coach is incompetent? Billick needs to go. Then bring in someone who can actually judge quarterback talent, and someone who can help young players on a rebuilding team. Ray Lewis, Jonathan Ogden, and Ed Reed may be going to the Pro Bowl, but they are not the future of the Ravens. Time to let go of the illusion that these guys can bring back the glory that was the 2000 team.

Please can someone in this organization open their eyes and see how bad the coaching staff is and how undisciplined the players are. Can anyone in the Ravens Organization show accountability for any loss? I am tired of hearing from the players how they need to be treated like" men" when I see "children" throw flags into the stands, do ridiculous celebrations when we are getting our arse is kicked and justifying it on their radio shows. I want the Professionalism of the old Baltimore Colts, just do your job and show the fans that making that big play is no big deal.

I thought Bisciotti had some guts when he (embarrassed Billick) put him in his place on TV after the 2005 season. So the next year he hands Billick a 4 YEAR EXTENSION????? Well now Billick has Bisciotti by the Ba**s and there's nothing Bisciotti can do about it. Bisciotti's not going to eat the 15 mill he still owes Billick. And if Billick has it in his contract that he gets to call the shots as far as hiring coaches, we're in for another looooooong season....SOMEBODY GET ME A BEER!!!!!

This season is in the tank. The conversation is already about next years draft but this team will return intact with the same offense....more of the same.Too bad. 4-12.

If going out "fighting" includes receivers dropping balls,running routes short of the 1st down marker on 3rd and long,and reserve corners giving up big plays then count me out.Why fight now?I know its the Steelers ,but we have something to lose for.Does anybody think that the few starters that are left will play that hard?Maybe if we throw another game Billick will be gone.Rick N. our incognito Offensive Coordinator was smart enough to "fly the Coop".He didn't want to make the same mistake Jim Fassel made ,and hang around too long get blamed for no offense.He can't get a job coaching anywhere now.When does "the buck stop"at Brian.Time to cut our losses.Biscotti can lose 15 mil. thats" chump change " to him.He should fire Brian now,and return us to respectability again.I can wait for us to rebuild I know it may take time clean up the mess Billick created.I am so tired of the status quo.My team is hurting,but being an optimist i'm hoping things will get better next year.Maybe there is hope an overhall is coming.We can only hope!

The Ravens want to win this game. Great. They should have wanted to win the Bills game. You know the one that started this losing streak. They mailed that game in a week before there bye week. That game showed the character of the coaching and the players of this Ravens team. Just like Billick, win the game that doesn't mean a thing. Against a team that's just warming up for the playoffs and resting there players. Go get them Brian. Forget about the Bills game and all the games since. Maybe you can invite HBO to spring training again next year.

Maryland should start a new lottery. One where the profits go to the firing of Billick and paying off his contract. Those tickets would go like hot cakes and for the first time you would see your tax money really go for something worthwhile..

Is anyone actually stupid enough to believe this crap? This team does not have the CHARACTER to go out and play for anything more than $$$ and more bling. As a fan of the GAME OF FOOTBALL, it was a treat to watch excellent football being played last night! Sadly, consistently smart, high effort, character rich football has been missing in Baltimore for a long time now. Losing is not the issue. I can deal with losing when we are playing the game the way we would teach our kids to play.

Fightimg Ravens, what a joke.
What a bunch of overated panty weights.
Ray Lewis is a washed up has been. Too bad he is not flappping his wings at the game today.

The Ravens fans are turning on them.
You would never see Steeler fans selling their tickets to the scum fans of the Ravens or Browns.

Keep Gloating if the Pats lose in the playoffs or the Super Bowl if will all be for nill! There is nothing more I would to see is one of these teams like the Colts to finish what the Giants started to do and beat your arrogant team then you can wonder what could have been like Ravens fans did last year.Keep running your mouth!

I love the Ravens, not going to jump ship after a bad year.(or the Orioles after many bad years)

Nice job ruining your draft chances. It's obvious that nobody on either side wants to win this game. I think that the Steelers are just screwing the Ravens over by "making" them win and getting a lower draft pick.

Tomlin knows that San Diego will beat the Raiders and that this game is meaningless to them.

Spoken like a true coward. True Cowardice by the Squeelers today. Every other team is playing their starters for at least a half. Why wasn't Ward playing. You can't use the argument that they were resting their starters b/c Santonio Holmes was playing. Could it be that Tomlin knew that Bart Scott and Ed Reed had Ward in their sites today?!! He didn't want Ward to get knocked the f*ck out like Slow-Legs Willie.

Congrats to Squeelers fans for paying double the price of tickets to not only not see Charlie Batch (who shouldn't even be on a practice squad) play, but also see the mucho overrated Squeelers take it up the a**. Just like they did against the Jets, Cardinals and Jags.

Today has a Baltimore fan I'm truly embarrased. Not from my team, but from my division who has the weakest team ever representing it in the playoffs. Ouch!!! Squeelers fans s*ck it!!!! HAAAAAAAAAAAAAA HAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!
