Your team played well! McGahee is a powerhouse. You all deserve respect for a good run at a crafty team like Belicheck's Pats. Brady & Co. hang tuff at the end of tight games. Go forward and kick some butt! you can win, it showed last night. Great Game!!! Thanks

Monday Night showed me that the Ravens have the PERSONNEL to play with the elite in the NFL. For a brief moment, I considered BB to maybe coach the Ravens next year. But somehow, after the LOSS, I came back to my senses--he could have gained respectability as a head coach of a 4 and 7 team who had beaten the best team in the NFL. He blew it as usual. It's like David and Goliath. But Goliath won. We,(The Baltimore Ravens Fans), had the opportunity to show the world that we have the BEST team in the NFL. BB has no control over his players, he's not creative offensively, and the fans of Baltimore deserves better. Put a survey on as to whether Brian Billick should STAY or BE FIRED as head coach of the Ravens. I DARE YOU!!!!!

Though improved, Boller showed the same frustrating consistency. He was great in the first half, and couldn't pass for a first down when they needed it in the last quarter. Even that little swing pass to McGahee was off. If he had put it on his outside shoulder McGahee might have gotten the first down.

Boller played one of his better games, but his inability to move the chains in the second half cost them the game.

Really enjoyed watching the game for the first time in a long while although I still ended up throughing stuff at the T.V. One obsevation that I made was Billick seeming to rip into Boller on a low third down pass that went incomplete. I don't think that's what Boller needs. You need a confident quarterback, especially in the 4th quarter. You can't play being afraid of making mistakes, even the great quartebacks make bad throws from time to time.

I would say that you and Everett's posts are more reflective of a juvenile and petty " Nahnahnah" mentality.

Being a taunting, arrogant winner (who comes to rub in from a safe distance) reflects not only your immaturity, but also indicates a serious character flaw.

Hope you get well soon...

NO bulider would ever build a house on a bad foundation....but that's what Mr. Busciotti has chosen to do with Billick...this is what you get with deep rooted internal disfunction...Boller played very well but in the end he was reduced to a non factor because Billick had no confidence in him after the rookie mistake by a five year veteran...like I've said before you need a game changing quarterback..no matter how good a defense is they cant overcome their own mistakes... coach, quarterback, and in this game officials....it's to heavy of a burden....especially against an opponent who is not burdened with any of these unnecessary obsticles.
I liked your opening sentence,

" NO bulider would ever build a house on a bad foundation..."

I guess what you mean is its like an honest citizen shouldnt move to Las Vegas cause its Sodom and Gomorrha and it cant change.
Plus,'obsticles' is a great creation. There u go again with your dirty mind. Tsktsk.

i think boller deserves a better grade- the 1 interception was the 1 bad pass he made all game- what sux is that the offensive coordinator did not trust him at all after that pick and they reverted to a predictable offensive attack and had nothing for the pats in the 4th. and as we all know, u cant give brady that many chances with the ball. i think they were surprised o have the lead in the 4th and just went conservative and playing not to lose instead of playing to win.
