Call it what it was: A bullsh*t call...and then a failure to respond to adversity.
PS. What's with the failure to pressure/sack the QB ever... EXCEPT the Suggs play.

NO SACKS on that statue Collins!! Unbelievable! Yeah, the defense played a really good game, certainly good enough to win. But there was NO pressure on Collins all day long --- NONE!!! That's just ridiculous. Maybe we should hang this loss on Rex!?!?!?....The officials screwed us, but we should be used to that by now.

Babies & whiners!!!! Ravens will never evolve into a good team until they stop blaming everyone but themselves for their losses. The Sun writers are becoming enablers to these sorry bunch of CRYBABIES!! Suggs is a talented athlete but continues to act immaturely & hurt his team. Things need to change here. I see this as our new coaches 1st test. let's see if he can reign in the loudmouths on his team who worry more about themselves then the team. Are we seeing the Ravens of old who self destruct because of their disrespect for their opponents, officials, fans & the game itself? or a new Ravens team, capable of playing a full 60 minutes of football in a professional manner.

The game was not lost entirely because of the officials. The Raven's defense seems to have a problem responding to adversity. Just like last week after Johnson's penalty it seems like the D still went to the bench. The secondary left recievers wide open after the penalty and the Titans easily moved the ball down the field. There was no defense at all on that drive after the penalty.

Perhaps we should be tipping our caps to the Titans' offensive line. They did a phenomenal job stopping our pass rushes and four man fronts.

Yes, the call on Sizzle was absolute BS, but the defense still had 65 more yards to stop them and they couldn't get it done. Why this team continues to meltdown in the final minutes of games, year after year, boggles my mind. We simply can't hold a lead, and it's beyond frustrating. This game, as well as the game against the Steelers last week, should have both been wins. Instead, we find ways to lose.

I know Harbaugh is a rookie head coach and all, but his decision to not take a shot at the endzone at the end of the half is inexcusable. Flacco regressed as a QB yesterday, as he needs to learn to throw the ball away. I still think he gives us the best chance to win.

Bottom line, the wins against the Bungles and Clowns gave the team (and fans) a false sense of heightened expectations. The Ravens are a slightly above average team; nothing more, nothing less. In a down year in the AFC, the Ravens have a chance to surprise some people, but they've got to stop shooting themselves in the foot.

The Titans are a tough team and it was a tough loss, but I have to agree with veedub, the first two wins of the season gave fans hope when, before the season started, we were all saying that it was a rebuilding year and to not expect too much.

Flacco is definetly still the key to continued success, but everyone must remember that he is a rookie and is going to make mistakes and remember that even the best QB's in the league had bad rookie years. He makes improvements every game - for example last week the issue was that he threw to Mason only, but this week he spread the ball around a little more. Hopefully he will work on his rollout this week and improve for next week's game.

We are in for a long season but we need to support the developing offense so that we have a team for the future.

I'm VERY proud of the Ravens.The last two games looked like a unified team trying to rebuild under a NEW coach and ROOKIE QB!!!!! I enjoyed both games. Hey was that Ozzie I talked to at the Owings Mills facility this weekend?:-) Get well Troy! Flacco/Ravens "might" need you.

Once again Suggs and his band of thugs undo thr good work of the offense. You can take the boys out of the HOOD but you can't take the HOOD out of the boys.

I am sick and f*cking tired of having NFL officials steal games from us, especially at home. I spend a lot of money and time preparing, tailgating and attending and I have had enough. Something drastic must be done....Biscotti has got to step up on behalf of hsi fan base, I am telling you that it is getting old and the ground sell is growing in B/More.....IT HAS GOT TO STOP..NOW!

George you must be a prophet, my sentiments exactly. It's time the defense stop acting like the bunch of criminals they are and act like professionals representing the city of Baltimore and their fans in a respectful way. This team will never see greatness as long as Big Mouth Ray Lewis and his thugs buddies on defense are still here.

Maybe it's time to stop blaming the officials, it's our fault. Everybody knows because of the way our team acts the officials are going to look at us through the micrscope. Besides the officials don't lose the games, the players do and ours are just not good enough. In 13 years they have been in many big games and have only been able to win the Super Bowl. For all the talk this defense does you'd think it was the second coming of Jesus. So Ravens don't complain about not getting any prime time spotlight games you DON'T DESERVE IT!!!!!
