AGREE 100%- THE SUPPOSED "OFFENSE GURU" RAVENS HEAD COACH, BILLICK, HAS NO EYE FOR "TALENTED PLAYERS" THAT HIS TEAM NEEDS TO WIN IN THE NFL!
ONE OF MANY PERFECT EXAMPLEs ~ CUTTING DEREK ANDERSON.

Didn't Brad Johnson turn the Ravens down?? He was smarter than the rest, ahead of his time. He knew.

Nice to see Chris Redman have a decent night, even if it was in a losing cause. There's a guy that Billick ran out of town. Redman was coming along nicely until he hurt his back, and then Billick never gave him another chance, I guess, because Mr. Ego wanted to prove that his golden boy, Boller, was the guy. By the way, five years later, how's that working out for you, Brian? Admit it. You didn't like the idea of someone else suggesting, to you, who your starting QB should be-- even if it was Hall of Famer Johnny U doing the suggesting. I guess you showed him, didn't you?

It was the officials....
It is the nutball owner...
The NFL is at fault....
It was the head coach....
The Baltimore Colts would never be this bad....

Any other excuses? Ha ha... losers!

What Madden really tried to tell Ravens fans on national TV is "if you want to get back to resembling a SuperBowl caliber team, forget Kyle Boller".
Boller had the time to prove himself and it didn't workout. The Ravens should not have released Derek Anderson. Look at him now.
I hope Smith plays the duration of the schedule.

While it is nice to see Redman doing well, I recall a game against Denver when our starter was hurt and they brought Redman in. On the first series, you'd thought he'd never been introduced to a football. While the late Johnny Unitas tried to groom him, Redman was always treated like an afterthought.

A Suck-mas Carol for the Ravens-Colts game:
by: Me
( http://www.bmorebirdsnest.com/... )

Twas the 13th game of the season, at M&T Bank,
Our Ravens had been losing, all year they had stank.
Black jerseys were hung in their lockers with care,
Madden and Michaels, the SNF crew would be there.

Here in Charm City, this game gives us a fright,
playing this team that was taken from us, under cover of night.
But these aren’t the same Colts watched by your father or mother,
and we hoped that this Manning would play more like his brother.

The fans were all standing, not one in their seat,
Remembering Brady, and the Pats’ near defeat.
With Boller under center, and Reed covering Wayne,
We settled our nerves, knowing we’d win the game.

When out of the locker room, there came word of disaster,
C-Mac was out! The Colts would score faster!
Groans arose from the crowd, it couldn’t be true,
The Colts will get open, Samaris out too!

Hope faded quickly, things were not looking good,
The Ravens were not to play as well as they could.
On this cold, dark, and rainy night in the East,
Peyton was in town, and on purple he’d feast!

With a wry, confident grin I’d seen on TV,
18 moved the ball, fast as could be.
More rapid than Elway’s, his passes they flew,
He guided his troops, and they knew what to do.

“Now Reggie! Now Dallas! Now Utecht, and Addai!
Gonzalez! Go deeper! Catch this on the fly!
To the back of the end zone, right down the seam!
No one can cover you, no one on that team!”

Dressed in blue and white, on his cap a horseshoe,
Leading the troops in B-More, like old Johnny U.
Our vaunted defense bit on each fake,
John Madden even asked,“Whats in a Crabcake?”

His throws — how they spiraled! His tosses - how money!
The Ravens were no match, t’wernt even funny.
They shredded our D, laid waste to our O,
Ravens fans left; before the half they did go.

And then what did we see, but a vision so troubling?
Jim Irsay in our house, his champagne glasses bubbling.
Watching o’er the game from his luxury suite,
“We stole your team, B-More, with that Mayflower fleet!”

You Baltimorons whining over the Colts and claiming to be different than the Browns is quite ironic. Apparently you Natty Bo' drinkers have shoddy memories.
The Colts left Baltimore because the city would not build them a new arena. When Bob Irsay started searching for a new city, the Maryland legislature (yes, your own state reps) threatened to take over his team through eminent domain to keep it from moving. Obviously, this did not work.
Moreover, if Art Moddell had his wish, the Baltimore Browns would be in the NFL, not the Ravens. Cleveland fans did what you criers failed to do: they acted when their team was in peril. THEY forced the sitdown with Art M and the NFL and convinced all parties to leave the Browns name in Cleveland. You homers just cry and use it as an excuse. Pathetic little fairweather fans!
Lest you forget, or 'spin' the facts - Irsay split town like a theif in the night. The time to sit down was tried and ignored. This is when the media posted the news. Adversly, the Brown sale to Bmore was a media event before and as was happening. To his credit, Modell was a man, and approached this in a fair way and laid all his cards on the table, and provided a timeline. He was fair to Bmore, and more than fair to the Browns in allowing the negotiaition to keep the Browns nme in Cleveland. Irsay, aka the weasle, however split town in an utter and most disrespectful way (like a ghost). This is not a man, it is a weasle, and you too share that adjective on your character this is obvious. Weasles always ignore facts other than the ones they want to use to strengthen their position. Get it right Mr. Weasle. Your opinion holds no water, just plain sucks, umkay. You Mr. Weasle, are a flaming idiot.
