Someone check out the recieveing stats from yesterday's game:

No other team in the league had less recievers involved in the game and still won:

Mason Clayton Rice McClain are the only people to catch passes.

We're thin at W/R if we only have Figures Smith Williams and Wheelright as our backups...Who?

We're going to need some other guys to step up if we want to have a chance against better than average teams...

I'm talking to you Heap!

Go ravens!

Very Impressive...lmao. What? Up next the tough pathetic Texans....roflmao!
What a joke. Keep being fooled morons.
Yep, the exact same comment made to yet another article. Oh that mighty intellect at work again. What a joke, but no one is being fooled. Come on man, only a lazy moron would pull a stunt like that.

Here's something for you to rub your two brain cells together over and come up with a rational comment. Since the Giants lost to the Browns, a pathetic team, are the Giants a pathetic team themselves? Don't hurt yourself with this. A simple yes or no answer will suffice.

Flacco's development is coinciding nicely with the upcoming schedule.. 4 NFC east teams with Pitt & Jacksonville at home.. it will be needed along with that "3 headed monster" of a running game.. Oh by the way.. lets give props to that O Line !
oh yeah, no doubt that the game ball belongs to that whole OL. They created holes, protected well and they were not even 100% healthy!! They executed very well!! Gotta love Ray Rice. He's so small that the Browns had difficulties figuring out where he was when he had the ball! Jason Brown is a BEAST!! He was man handling the Browns DL. UNC product baby!

I'm no college football or draft expert, but I liked both the Flacco and Rice picks right from the start. Ryan was the big star, but I thought Joe was a "workingman's" type guy more appropriate to Baltimore; a good guy for a team-oriented concept which I think is healthy for the Ravens. And now look what Rutgers is doing with Rice not there! Both these guys (with an improved O-line and O-coordinator) are showing a lot, and should only get better. Caww indeed!

I agree that the overall perfomance of the offense was the best we have seen so far this year and arguably in years. I still question why we don't see use of our tight ends? When we get those guys into the fold we will have an efficient ofense that can put up drives that score and score touchdowns. we're not going to be "explosive" but we can put up 30 points a game and rely on our defense to keep the other teams at bay. what I was not prepared for is how terrible our kicking teams are, apart from the field goal unit. The ravens were always good at special teams but never had offensive threat now we are developing that threat and giving up on 1/3 of the game. I expected more from a coach that led special teams at philly. What gives?

Injuries to our starters adversely impact special teams. Thats just a fact of life in the NFL.

Why are people always saying "young" Ravens? That defense is old and getting older by the day. The future is not bright and it's getting darker. Flacco TD/INT ratio is pathetic!
Let's see now. Rookie QB, Rookie RB, Youngest O Line in NFL history prior to Yanda's injury. Yeah, that's young. Fool

Flacco has just gotten so much better, he hasn't thrown a pick since the Indy debacle and has made some outstanding throws. Oh and Preston the Browns had won three out of their last four, they aren't a great team but they did have some momentum going and it was in Cleveland.

Oh and Ray Rice was phenomenal yesterday, that was the small back from Rutgers I expected to see. If he can do that consistently and the Ravens actually draft a legitimate deep threat WR than we'll have a hell of an offense for the future.

I think the Browns are a better team than anyone gives them credit for. They've had a terrible schedule so far. They beat the Giants, they beat the Jaguars and have kept most games close except for against us and Dallas.
The reason I say this is that you're diminishing this win in the dog pound when everyone's favorite Giants couldn't take them there. In my opinion, that was the best offensive performance I've seen from the Ravens since before they had a defense.

Perhaps you and your lover Lomax who
also claims to have been forcibly relocated to Philly [so move! it's a free country] and swears like you that he doesn't root for the Eagles, will tell us what NFL team you do support? You two do seem to have a lot of time on your hands, that is when you don't have each other's d*** in your hands.

We're most likely gonna beat Cincy, Houston, Philly, Dallas and Skins. I can't predict Giants and Steelers and Jags should not be that hard to beat if the Brwonies beat them in Jax!

If we stay healthy and at least get some production from our CBs and Special teams, then we'll be really tough to beat!
