where was the game plan? it was as if Billick drew it up. Why not play to the strengths of a team? why was flacco passing the entire first half?? where was the running? where was the running with the jumbo package. the best thing I saw today was Ray Rice getting a chance to show what he can do. McCalister should be ashamed of himself! and Cameron has not impressed me with his play calling all season thus far. I feel this game was a watershed moment and we looked like we couldn't dictate to any team.

Mike. You should add a rating for the coaches each week. Harbaugh, Rex and Cam.

There is no rating low enough for these three jokes.

Let's start grading the GM! Ravens' fans have had enough of this fraud! Every year it is the same lousy pathetic offense! Until we FIRE the bum behind the curtain these grades will not get any better when they play good teams. Enough is enough! Be fair and point out Ozzie's overwhelmingly boneheaded personel decisions. He's the one to point the finger at!

I can't believe how bad McAlister was today, yeah there was little pressure but still he looked horrednous. Flacco was flat-out awful, even last week he had a sub-par game but he looked poise. The pocket awareness he had displayed the first couple weeks was non-existant today. Truly a horrible game today.

The entire team deserves an F.
Harbaugh looks lost and already short tempered.
Cam must of been hungover with this plan.
and we have special need special teams.
I knew it would be a tough season so you keep looking for a glimmer of hope, you know a few special plays where you say wow
I have to change the channel and watch other games to find truly exciting football. Hard running. Exceptional catches. Touch passes. Deep passes. Seperation. On and on.
What did these clowns do in training camp and this past week? I work in a sports bar and embarrassed to admit I root for the Ravens.

It looks like Billick drew it up because these are basically the same pathetic players on offense! Coaching at this level is way overrated. Until we FIRE Ozzie they will continue to struggle. We can't keep firing coaches every year expecting it to get better all the while having an incompetent GM make moves like Mark Clayton; Willis McLazee; Dan Cody; Demetrius Williams; Chris Chester; David Pittman; 4 Friggin' safeties this year and no WRs; Dwan Edwards; Frank Walker; letting Derek Anderson walk; and etc. We all know this. Apparently, Preston does not.

I was thinking the same thing. I turned to the Rams - Redskins game and saw Clinton Portis running like a man possesed. Jason Campbell looked like a top-level NFL quarterback...and the Redskins lost! But, at least the game was exciting. Sitting through the second half of the Ravens - Indy game was excrutiating.

Billick has planted a microchip in Harbaugh and Cams brain. He must have kidnapped them using Boller as his hitman. Together they are directing the Ravens offense once again. Boller must have a Flacco medicine doll and is pricking his arms before he makes the throw. They have control of their minds...

Love It.
The Ravens are now the Washington Generals of football.
Sad. But fits all too well.

This is more proof that it's the inept players on offense causing the problem - not Brian Billick.

Mike, you encouraged many fans to hate Billick and you were clearly wrong.

We need a top-notch receiver who's a playmaker. We need a power back like Jamal.(Not lazy McGahee.) It's the system that needs to be fixed. We had practically the same team as last year but we're much healthier. This year it looks like we're spiraling down worse than ever.

There is some GOOD news:
Sean Schaefer, who became the 20th quarterback in Football Championship Subdivision (formerly DivisionI-AA) history to pass for more than 10,000career yards; Schaefer threw for 373 yards and four touchdowns."
Way to go Sean! Ozzie and Eric should now pick you in the first round of next years NFL draft; you are way better than Flacco!

Harbaugh is stuck with Billick players. It will take a year or two for the roster to be filled with Harbaugh guys. You can see it, one week they play unbillick like and do ell then, when they implode like today, you can see Billicks signature on the dotted line.

Dude this is not all Ozzie's fault, Harbaugh even said today that it was a TEAM effort in the loss and wins. It takes a TEAM to lose and to WIN! What, did Ozzie sleep with your wife or your dog, or both?

This game was horrible. Playoff talk and competitiveness are hard to come by in this league. The Ravens might be in rebuilding mode after-all. Many player contracts expire this season and some of them are quite expensive. I see no reason to renew any of them. Lewis, Suggs, Scott, etc let them all go. Better yet, trade them now to get some value. Better to gain more talent through the draft.

I almost fell for it.

Yes your Ravens did look pretty bad today, or perhaps our Colts are just very good. Thanks for the "workout" I thought the birds were better than this. We love OUR Colts

They get no grade, a grade would indicate they actually attempted physical exertion, I did not see that out there from anyone except Ray on the third play of the game from scrimmage. Although I did see Clayton make one catch for an eye-popping 4 yard yard catch, big day. He is now averaging .75 catches @ 15 FEET per game, nice work first rounder. Game ball goes to Stove pipe-he made one! He kept them from being shutout. Coaches: Do me a favor ask some pee-wee league coaches what to do against the worst run defense in the league, then draw up a plan...
