Mr Fantasy, you say "patience is a virtue. It's a very long season." Well, last I looked the very long season is half over and the team is at 4-4. Who have they beaten? The Rams, Jets, Cardinals and 49ers.(The Rams game being their only convincing win of the four.) That's four wins against teams with a combined 6-27 record. Now that the easy part of the schedule is over, now they have the Patriots, Colts, plus away games at San Diego and Seattle. That's not taken into account the Bengals upcoming with Palmer throwing against second and third string defensive backs; the improved Browns follow. Derek Anderson sure makes Steve McNair look like the old man he is. Seems the only possible win remaining on the schedule is at Miami, and that's not a given either.

Hey people...Im pulling for McNair to play the whole game. The more he fumbles, the less I have to punt. That will be key when we get deep in the Playoffs and need good field position.

Maybe we can merge compu coach and Marvin Lewis together. That way we'll get Marvin's offencive genius and Compu Coach's defencive expertise. We could call the new coach Marvin Billick or Brian Lewis, or simply Compu Coach 2.0

As for Mason, I suspect he is a stronger more silent TO type. He won't whine to the media ( that often), but he is the type of guy who wants the football first and foremost. As long as he is getting his 100 catches a year, he's a happy camper. And if he starts getting 3 catches for 25 yards a game type numbers for a couple of weeks running, he will run to the press and take shadowed shots at the coaching staff and his teamates.

Brian the brains pop warner offensive scheme turns horrible defenses into the 85' Bears. Remember after the Thursday night game last year and the first game this year the announcers in the booth talking about how Cincy's D had finally turned the corner. No collingsworth, No Jaworski they havent turned the corner, they are playing against the worst offense in the history of professional football. Yeah I said it, THE WORST EVER!!!!!!

Gay boy, put on a set of pads for once in your life and get on the field. You can't pull a hamstring just sitting on the couch.Unless you have ever had a hamstring pull.Then shut the f up.Tissue paper in your mussle mass.

Why is it that the Ravens can't develope a QB? They can't pick or groom a QB for nothing. Look at Derek Anderson. Phil Savage knew how good he is ,that is why he picked him up. The Browns coaching staff didn't know how good Anderson was .They was just starting Anderson till Quinn was ready. I would like to know who decided to put Anderson on the waiver wire anyway? The Ravens can't pick aQB,draft one, or buy one. They need to bring someone in to pick and groom a QB.

What happened to Clayton? He's a bust. That's what happened to Clayton.
I don't know about that. The Ravens offense is where offensive talent comes to die. I'll bet if Clayton had been drafted by a competent team w/a half decent set of coaches on offense, he would be progressing more in line w/the way his college career showed he would. I know, it's easy to speculate but it's no secret - TO didn't make a case out of refusing to come here for no reason. When you have no QB and no O-Coordinator, the O-line is suspect and no idea when to run vs. when to pass, it's hard to develop as a WR or any skill position on that side of the ball. The only answer for us is to binge and purge. Billick should be first to go.

<quoted text>This has to be the dumbest person to leave a comment in this paper. Rex Ryan has NO head coaching experience, the defense has been good under several defensive coaches. It's not his defense it's one he inherited. He usually looks good because that's where the talent is and where most of the money is spent. By the way love your name with all the f's contained in the middle. Now who would replace “th” with an “f”?
It really doens't matter who has coached our defense, whether Marvin Lewis with the 4-3, Nolan with the 3-4, or Ryan with the 4-6 - the player skill level has been so high that the defense excels with every scheme. As a result, we have launched the careers of many head coaches who probably should not have been head coaches. Also, the defenders that have left have typically not excelled in their next system becasue they do not have the same great players surrounding them and giving themselves opportunities to make great plays.
So, I agree with you on Ryan. Like Nolan, he is tainted by this offensive shceme here, and should not be given a head job just becasue of his defense. Additionally, Rex has not shown the ability to adjust to certain offenses, like the spread.

I like how you, Mike point out that the Bengals "D" is one of the worst in the leaque. This does not matter with a Billick "O" he has no clue. They will make their D look like a top 10 nfl unit. In retrospect I don't think Billick was the brains behind the Vikings offense,there must have been a man behind the curtain. The 1st play will be either a handoff to Willis for a short or no gain into the line or a dump pass for 3 yards or less! Happy agonizing 3 hours of football sunday

I told you the bungles d is almost as good as the 85 bears.....parking attendants...almost...Marvin Lewis is a great coach... he reserected this team, the greatest miracle of the past 50 years, right in front of the tearing down of the berlin wall... but without the right personel he's defenseless... swap him with billick and all the pieces will match..great front office great coach.. bad front office bad coach

That was terrible, agaisnt the 32nd ranked D in the league and we barely eek out a TD at home. Dick Enberg said, "Time for Billick to go back to the drawing board". Hell, we've been there all year. STOP THE DAMN TURNOVERS.
