Shut Up and just run, run, run and
use it to open up the play action. And let Kyle and the O-line get geared up for '08. And Ozzie - this time lets draft players that we need for -08 & 09 like a QB and a pass rusher. thanks

At this point the ravens need to experiment with whom ever, what ever in an attempt to see what works and what doesn't. The seasons a bust and everyone must concede that fact. Billick will do what Billick thinks will save his job. So don't expect anything different. Maybe the players want to help, maybe not. I clearly see worry in his face and mannerisms while talking to the media. All game plans, once discovered need to be adjusted. Boller may not be the answer but he's tring hard. One year as a backup is not to much to give for QB that was never been schooled, been hurt due to poor line play, played on a hurt, flawed, team with a basic game plan. Shaking his confidence doesn't bode well for 2008. Preston, I hope McNair retires also, He gave it his all but like that Titans game, came up short. Eat what ever you owe McNair and move on.

The Ravens are a disgrace to Baltimore. For years they have got away with being the bad, loud mouth boys in the NFL. There whinning and crying after the Pats game was the worst. Such a shame after finally playing good football. A player that can't stand to be referred to as a boy? Doesn't sound like a tough guy to me. What's wrong with a man being referred to as a boy? I guess it would have been alright if the ref called him a girl. or the B-word. Then you have a head coach blowing kisses at an opposing player. Let's see - you have a team with players that can't take being called a boy, a head coach blowing kisses, the whole rest of the team whinning about bad calls that were not bad calls at all. Plus they have layed down almost all year. THE BALTIMORE COLTS of old ( here or up above ) must be laughing out loud at these bafoons that call themselfs football players. They should play in the HIPPO league. At least there they might be a .500 team. "WHO LET THE DOGS OUT". Please new owner, let these dogs go and get some football players and coaches in here.
Wow you have serious issues. clearly you haven't played any type of sport. Emotion is involved. The Ravens were messed over again. We Ravens fans are used to it all year this year. It is a Raven fan thing. you wouldn't know. So stop posting what you don't know. Thanks xoxox

Another question to ask about the Harrison/Billick interaction was why Harrison wasn't flagged for taunting. If he had gotten into the face of a Ravens' player and started talking after that INT return by his team, it would have been 15 yards.
Another point on how the Patriots are already crowned by the officials.

Typical Preston article. Reminds me why I cancelled my Baltimore Sun subscription several years ago along with the fact that the rest of the paper is typical main stream media biased BS.

First off you should always try to run the ball but if the opposing team is crowding the line of scrimmage you have to call pass plays to move their safties off the line of scrimmage to enable your running game. Every team crowds the line of scrimmage against the Ravens because they know we have not had any kind of down field passing game until Boller opened it up against the Pats. With McNair there was no threat of a deep pass play whatsover so it made it easy to shut down the Ravens run attack.

Which brings me to my second point. Whoever thought Mcnair would lead us to a SB after watching the playoff game last January is either blind or a fool. To say that the door to the SB is shut because McNair can't cut it any more is a ridiculus statement.

Also to say that the players should have "put Rodney Harrisons light out" because he was trash talking the coach is an childish comment. Besides the Ravens haven't been able to shut up any other trash talkers that I know of. Think Chad Johnson and Terrell Owens.

first off the comment on ray lewis the man leads in tackles and is outplaying everyone he didnt complain about the patriots game and lately is staying out of the media so i think he deserves credit however bart scott isnt that great we should give that loser to the browns and replace hiom with antwan barnes or suggs next year. Also we need what i beilieve is a qb that can call his own plays like elway did in his later stages then when he gets comfortable he can only get better at the plays and creativity.

Isn't it about time we see what Troy can do do before we draft another QB?

Criticizing your team doesn't make you a bandwagoner. I will be at the game against pittsburgh but I can only hope that Billick will be fired by then. Make it embarassment number 4 this season tonight.
