Say what you want but the Ravens are a mediocre football team with a below average head coach. 6-10 would be a fair record for this team. The O is dysfunctional, the D is old and the coach hasn't made a good decision all year. You cant make chicken salad from chicken schitt.

Gee David, coudn't you leave God out of it? Football is hardly a religion as much as I enjoy it. I take offense to this direct inclusion.

Weeb's assessment is right on the money.

And you can add Ozzie to the mix. If he is such a good judge of talent why has the offense not improved over the years?

Balance wins championships. A title win like the Ravens posted, just like that of the 1985 Bears, is an aberration.

BRIAN BILLICK HAS TO GO. HIS EGO IS GETTING IN THE WAY OF BEING ABLE TO USE NORMAL LOGIC WHEN COACHING. WHEN THE RAVENS WERE ON THE 30 YARD LINE WITH THIRD AND ONE THEY SHOULD HAVE RAN THE BALL INSTEAD OF PASSING. THE OFFENSIVE LINE SHOULD BE WAIVED,STARTING WITH OGDEN.HE IS SO SLOW AND THE REST OF THE LINE DOESN'T KNOW HOW TO PASS BLOCK AT ALL.IF I OWNED THIS TEAM THER WOULD BE MAJOR CHANGES TAKING PLACE. EMBARRASSING.

Wow what sportsmanship from the Cleveland fans. Don't you guys have a hometown paper to post on? A quick Google search tells me you do...it's call the Plain Dealer and it looks like a rag.

I love football fans who taunt other football fans. How many TD passes did you throw today? How many yards rushing did you have? How many tackles did you make? In other words, you had nothing to do w/ your teams victory other than you sat on the couch in your dingy undies watching them on TV resting a beer on your big Drew Carrey sized gut. Get a life. When you suit up and start making plays for your team than you can do some barking.

If we had ran the ball more.
If we had not turned over the ball.
If we would have stopped kicking the ball to Joshua Cribbs(which by the way killed Pittsburgh last week at least we didn't allow 6 points like they did)
If we could pass block maybe Boller can
survive the season)
If Samuri Rolle was back.
If we would commit less penalties (which we did do yesterday except that stupid personal foul by Ngata).
If we can take that second half offense and built on it maybe the defense won't wear down.
If the fans would stop fantasizing about what might have been if we had Derek Anderson,and get behind Boller.
If we would stop whining about bad luck,and execute to make our own luck.
So many if's so little time.
Last if:If Boscotti would fire Billick
after this mediocre season and hire a
coach who will not accept uninspired football.(He gives B.S. answers instead of stating what actually happened on the field)WE ARE ALL TIRED
OF EXCUSES.Excuses don't win championships!

The Ravens lost yesterday for two reasons:
1. Unbelievably horrible first half - you need to score points
2. An equally horrendous special teams unit. We need new players on this team. They have no passion and try to avoid the big hit. If they tackle the kick-off man after we took the lead at the 20 to 30 the Ravens win.

Steelers Fan,

I will concede that the Ravens of 2007 suck. Too bad that you guys suck on the road and outside the division. The Pats will use the Squealers as whipping boys in Dec and Jan.

No Supe(r Bowl) for you...... in 2007.

Yeah this year ain't our year...but Ravens fans can at least take pride in this:

AT LEAST OUR TEAM WAS ABLE TO HANDLE THE CARDS & JETS THIS YEAR!!!

And to think sportswriters were begining to say that Pitt stood in the way of NE. Pitt is a joke, the whole AFC North is a joke this year.

Hey Douche-
Did you post last year when your sorry-assed team lost? And what the about your Squealers losing to the Jets? Can everyone stop talking about how the Steelers are in the same class as the Patriots, Colts and Cowboys? Get a life...

Would you be so kind to point out the connex as you see them with Newsome drafting and the O playing?
