With Billick and Boller gone, Preston has found patience. The same foibles that would have resulted in tirades against Billick's coaching skills and laughing at Boller's inadequacies are now met with measured discourse. Did Mikey have an epiphany or does he just have a double standard? Me thinks the latter.

Let me start by saying that I really like Flacco, and think he could be the real deal, but let's face it, he has missed open long balls and put D-II air under several potential long gain passes. He cetainly seems smart enough to understand that he needs to make adjustments in order to be successful down field with us.

Heap? Who's Heap? Good God, he has missed blocking assignments dropped passes, and fumbled...give me Wilcox until he decides he wants to be a pro football player again. Heap is capapble, but geez, show some heart man!!!

Optimistic, that's for sure...and I suspect that we'll be saying "this week is the real test" every week for a while...go Ravens.

Talk cHeap can just stay on the line and block.

He don't like Harbaugh, awww now now.

Maybe he can fetch water for his hero Billick in the booth next year.

Heap, why can't you catch anymore. Stop whinning about Harbaugh being tough, a TE is suppossed to be one of the toughest and nastiest skill position offensive players. Ever since the fumble against the Colts in the playoffs Heap hasn't been the same. Go Wilcox.

How bout you stop trying to pick a fight with a writer that obviously doesn't care what you say and look at the obvious? Harbaugh has done great and so has Flacco. Boller was a horrible qb and billick was good but turned out to not be what the team needed nemore. So just grow up and accept the obvious and read an article instead of picking a fight for no reason

As a sportswriter Preston ranks somewhere south of mediocre but you are wrong about this one.

His commentary on Harbaugh mirrors pretty much the style of what he wrote about Billick earlier in Preston's career.

If you read Preston's columns on Billick at that time, he was quite fair with him, stating that Billick's Super Bowl win and turn around of a sorry franchise had earned him the benefit of the doubt. This even when it was obvious that Preston did not think much of Billick or his coaching.

Then at some point, maybe around 2004, it all went to hell, almost as if he had some kind of personal run in with Billick.

Maybe Preston had a personal run in, or maybe some Sun editor told him to jack up the negative or maybe Preston just got fed up with the erosion under Billick, who knows? Preston has remained pretty consistent in his regard, or lack thereof, for Billick ever since.

So Preston is treating Harbaugh exactly the same way he treated Billick at the beginning.

I think it is high time to go with Wilcox and get rid of Heaps soft a.. next year and let him go find another Billick to play for where he doesn't have to be a football player.The Raven's have been saddled with this overated tight end for years now and it is time to move on, he is one of the least productive tight ends in football, and way to soft to be in the NFL!
