I agree with you Mike, and while Flacco had a tough time the last two weeks, even then there will still signs of him being an eventually good QB. The next two weeks will be a good opportunity for him.

Yea its time to let him go wild, what do we have to lose? If we lose these next 2 games, basically our season is over. I like how they are sticking with Flacco, he needs to learn. Ravens need to build for the future. Go deep, deeep, deeep, deeeeeeeeeep!!!!

They have been conservative with him....thats why its scary that he's still been able to throw some crushing interceptions.... especially in the tennesse game....and some very deflating ones early in the Indianapolis game.You can certainly understand their dilema....its up to Flacco to make or break them and so far he's breaking them.

I commented after the loss to the Colts that the Ravens should quit playing not to lose and start playing like they have nothing to lose! Flacco should go deep on first down a few times!
Less missed tackles might at least keep the game winnable!
Replace Figurs as a return man and try him as a flanker.
And quit rearing those ugly black tights!!

People keep to talking about Figurs...but I think the problem has really been the blocking. Look at the average time from when he gets the ball until an opposing player is near him...some of that may be attributed to good punts...but all of it can't be.
