But I'm buzzing. On Thursday I make my first ever trip to Baltimore for my first live Ravens game on Sunday. It's finally sinking in....
Anyone who sees a Ravens fan with a Scotland flag next Sunday - come and say Hey!
his recent posts have been somewhat one-note, let's say.
At 2-0, this team can only continue to get better.
That's true, to some extent. Hell, had Rice not bobbled that little reverse pass we might have had 6 and not sweated the final 5 minutes.
To put a somewhat positive spin on things - there is NO FREAKING WAY another QB is going to put up 420 yards through the air again this season against the defense. Unless it is Peyton Manning, in which case I redact my statement. Even then, I think the CBs match up much better against timing route speed runners than the big WRs of the Chargers.
I don't know how to feel about it, today. All I know is they sucked ass today, but probably won't suck ass quite as bad in the future.
we're armchair fans...we love when this team wins, but we also come at it from the coach perspective.
Think about this...S.D. won it last min against the Raiders last week. We win it last minute against the Chargers this week. What does that say about us playing Raiders later this year? Especially when the Raiders D managed to shut down KC this week?
This is why we worry. The Ravens O has given up 700 yards in 2 WEEKS! This team once only gave up a little over 1000 yards in a SEASON!
You can be happy with this performance if you trust our offense to win shootouts like NO. But we are not that type of O, and it showed when they tried to close out the game and were stuffed over and over.
If you disagree, just say "I don't think there's anything wrong"...don't come out and try to smack down someone speaking their mind about their concerns. He's not doing it blindly or stupidly.
I'm not going to say I told you so. But this game was indicative of the problems I've been talking about since the last game. I appreciate there was a matchup problem with their WRs, but you have to be able to cope with all aspects of the game.
Now that we've given up the yards everyone is so concerned about, as well as the points, I hope people will appreciate that this is something of an issue.
This was a game, on the west coast, against a very good team that is a very bad matchup for the Ravens defense. We still went in, dictated the pace of the game and led the majority of the way. We faltered down the stretch and needed a super-human effort to close it out, but the Ravens did it.
I hope Samari is available week 6. This team needs to find a way to stop small fast RB's and Big Strong WR's.
Frank Walker gets a small apology from me. Heap appears to be making me eat my words happily. Keep going guys.
Do we need to get our shit together with the secondary and pass rush? Yep. But make sure your facts make sense.
PS: The transitive property of wins means absolutely freaking nothing. Shutting down KC doesn't really mean anything to us. When you say things like this it just makes you sound silly.
I'm just glad I don't have to listen to Fouts again for the rest of the week. :ww:
I'll tell you what concerns me. Game four. Moss lining up opposite Foxworth.
Has anybody seen Ed Reed?
Thank God our Offense is doing the damn thing.
If Rivers was avoiding Reed that much how wasn't the coverage better.
Is it just me or did Jackson bobble that TD and finally had possesion after he was out. Did Coach have a Red Flag or did Norv steal it before the game. another catch that was suspect on the last drive, I'm pretty sure the ground can not assist with the catch.
Well shit. They had it on in the restaraunt we were playing. So I heard the score but didn't see a lot of the game.
Exactly how did the defense let the Chargers score that many freaking points?
I'm going to watch the gamefilm tonight.
