Full story: Baltimore Sun

Joe Flacco had a couple of passes that he needed to get a little steam on, but he was poised with the team down by 14 points.

GO RAVENS! A great come from behind win that was clean and well played. I was a little concerned with the secondary allowing some big plays but the defense really buckled down when it counted!

Finally an A- for Flacco!

Sorry Mike, but Special Teams almost lost the game for us yesterday - they deserve a D+ at best. Unfortunately, this has been a recurring theme. If I were Harbaugh, I'd put that Special Teams coach and the hot seat, and inform him that if we have another game like that - he's out-a-here!

LOL. C- for special teams this week/C for Flacco last week. As others have already pointed out, special teams was a disaster -- and has been sub par the entire year. What makes that particularly odd is Harbaugh's ST background.

OH...and A- for Flacco because some of his passes need more zip? You're beyond ridiculous Preston.

Looks like there is a glitch in the fans grading off the Ravens because every category has 2,000 plus responses for an "F" grade or else someone has no life and really is trying to pull the Ravens down.

Joe Flacco has inspired this team. Reminds me of a QB in New York who was criticized loudly and came back to win a Super Bowl last year. Flacco' poise amazes me for a rookie QB. Makes mistakes but comes back the next play and moves on. Sign of a great QB in the working. I enjoyed the game, thought some of the players made mistakes, but they stuck together and pulled out the win. I congraduate them and the coaches.

With 13 guys on Injured Reserve what do you expect? The Ravens have the most injuries in the NFL. Players have been pulled off special teams into starting and backup roles. So of course the special teams suck - full of rooks and unknowns.

I think Preston grading system should be done before he goes to the bar. They may not stand out like some of the big playmaking teams in the NFL, but if team ball gets it done then so be it. For the first time as a Ravens fan I don't know what they are going to run on offense, but there seems to be a good chance something good will happen unlike last year.

Who are these turds who grade every aspect of the team with F's? Steeler fans maybe? 54% of each category got F's. This is an exercxise not worth doing anymore, Preston.

I keep hearing about Habaugh and ST...but look at head coaches around the league and their background. Marvin Lews has a what is reported to be a defense. Brian Billick...yeah. Miami didn't do much on offense with Cameron. Someone mentioned the injuries...but I've seen lot's of fans from various teams complaining about their team lacking in the area the head coach specialized in.

There is no glitch. Some guy named FireTrembley is doing all of it. He's been ignored by many of us in here with all his stupid posts and now this is his only way to stir things up.

All those who love to see the Ravens lose because they don't like Ray Lewis, Bart Scott, T-Sizzle and the Ravens consistent top ranked Defense year in and year out are now jealous because the Ravens are finding ways to win on offense and doing it with a rookie QB, a rookie RB and a Wide Receiver (Derrick Mason) who many think should be retired. All I have to say is, this Ravens team is getting better offensively and more confident each week. Who knows, maybe the "P" word could be in their future this season. GO RAVENS!!!!!

Do not mention this person. Everybody should ignore him.

I hate to be a party poop, but who have the Ravens played, and beat. Cincinnati, Cleveland Twice, Miami, and Oakland. I think the Defensive Secondary is do do. The ground game is okay. None of these RB's are speedy. I do like Rice. The Receiving is still average at best. Flacco still is under throwing the ball. Special Teams is lame. Do you really think these guys can come back against a good football team. I wish them well, but they are far from a serious contender. They just don't have the Depth that really good teams have.

What is the deal with Heap? It's like he's asleep at the wheel.

What's the deal with sacks? How can we be so good against the run and get so few sacks so far this season? Is it the schemes?

Why do we continue to be sloppy in tackling skills? Walker let Edwards get by him for that non-TD by thinking just throwing his body at Edwards would knock him down like a bowling pin. I would fine the idiot $5000 for his laziness.

What's the deal with Harbaugh not throwing a flag for reviews, like the non-TD mentioned? He seems to forget he's the head coach sometimes and acts like he's a spectator. Just for that I'd give him a C.

Granted, they lost them both, but the Ravens were in (and arguably should have won) the games against the Steelers and the (undefeated) Titans. The only game they stunk up the field was against Indy, and even the great teams usually have at least one crap game a year.

I'm not betting on the Ravens making the playoffs, but they can no longer be simply written off.

I've read some posts that indicate heap is being used more as a run and pass blocker which makes it hard to get out and catch passes. but yeah, his absence in the passing game concerns me too. I also believe we need to get better pressure on the opposing QB to help out the inconsistent secondary.

I heard (but don't know the truth)that the home team controls the replays; could even just a second or two delay have kept the coaches upstairs from seeing a good replay and telling Harbaugh to challenge?
