    Seriously. We can go 1-3 and it would take the Steelers or Bengals going 4-0 in addition to that to get ahead of us. Everyone needs to unrustle their jimmies.

    Re: Do we make the playoffs?

    We'll probably make it to the playoffs but will probably lose our first game. I hate to say it, but this team has looks like a pretender this season. Hopefully the early playoff exit leads to the firing of Cam, I can't stand that fucker.

    As has been pointed out, you ARE wrong. The Ravens have lost 3 in a row on 2 different occasions under Harbaugh.

    I don't think the chances are very high, but there IS a chance that this loss breaks the levee and the Ravens lose out. The myth of invulnerability at M&T is now totally shattered.

    This team has been very, very lucky, and luck doesn't last forever. There are devastating, intractable problems everywhere on this team except special teams.

    Realistically, I would assume 11-5 or 12-4. Good enough for the 3rd or 4th seed and the division. Probably good enough to win in the first round, but all bets are off beyond that.

    I think I have a right/am justified to overreact about this. Give me a day or two (or the whole week) to calm down a little.

    I hope Ozzie is already laying the ground work to bring in Alex Smith next year, and perhaps getting a few second and third round draft picks for Flacco.
    That is an idiotic statement. Alex Smith has posted more efficient numbers than Flacco this year, but Jim Harbaugh and the 49ers OL is more responsible for that than Smith himself.

    If Flacco had a decent playcaller and decent surrounding cast, he'd appear much better. No, he did not have a great game, but as usual, Flacco's bad game was accompanied by a bad game for EVERYONE on offense.

    How many dropped passes? How many bad routes can Torrey run in a game? How bad can this OL play? Is Ray Rice just totally useless for 90% of his snaps against the Steelers? And that's not even to get into the terrible failures of our offensive coaching staff. Do we just excuse all of that because Flacco also failed to step up? No, we cannot do that.

    Re: Do we make the playoffs?

    Yes, we will make the playoffs. Maybe not at the seeding we could have had but we'll be there. I certainly don't see us winning against Houston though. This team wants to do everything the hard way this year and they just blew a ripe opportunity. They just screwed themselves royally. They certainly didn't play like they wanted it bad enough.

    I thought Rice, Pierce, and Leach had good games, Osemele was pretty good along with Yanda.

    I actually saw Torrey just stop running on some plays...before Flacco had even thrown the ball. Seemed lime he knew the ball wasnt coming to him, so he half assed it. Did t expect that from him.

    Re: Do we make the playoffs?

    Predictable thread.

    This thread needs to go in the steaming pile with the "We will go 8-8" thread and "how does this team win 10 games" threads.
    Although Walsh's system of offense can compensate for lack of talent; however, defense is a different story. According to Walsh, talent on defense was essential and could not be compensated for. What did Walsh do in 1981? He acquired physical and talented players on defense.

    This team should still manage to get in the playoffs and should win the division. The reality though is unless some thing drastic occurs, this team is not good enough IMO to make a run and win a Super Bowl. Saying that we will not make the playoffs cause we lost to Pittsburgh with a 3rd string QB is an overreaction. Saying that we will be toast on the road in the playoffs is not though.

    Far as I am concerned, as long as our offense remains the pile of steaming pooh it has become under Cam, we will not be progressing far in the playoffs. No slants, no screens, only 9's and receivers running around covered.....oiy vey.

    Leach had a good game blocking and catching. Rice had a couple of long runs, 34, 10, and 10, but went for less than 3 yards a carry on his remaining carries, including going for 1 or less yards 4 times. He also had a horrifying drop with green grass in front of him. He was outplayed by Pierce overall. I would argue that both Ravens backs were outplayed by Dwyer, who has half the talent of either of them. That's a coaching failure as much as anything else.

    The OL held up pretty well in the first half, then fell apart in the second (got outcoached again, sound familiar?) The WRs were BRUTAL outside of Boldin for one stretch... again, their OC put them in position to fail with bad route designs... but still, the Steelers are down their #1 CB and our wideouts still look like this is their first Sunday playing football.

    Of course we never had a #25 ranking in defense before either.

    Re: Do we make the playoffs?

    It would be almost impossible for the Ravens to miss the playoffs.

    They have squeeked by enough times to preserve Miami Cam's job. It is secure for another season of mediocrity.

    They've enjoyed a top 5 defense most of their tenure... I certainly hope what you are implying is true.

    I still don't understand how you can just disregard that big TD run like it's nothing.... "oh but before that he wasn't doing anything", who cares? If a back breaks away for a big TD like that, it's a big deal. Wasn't his YPC before that run like 4 anyway? That's not spectacular, but it's a solid effort, he was't out performed by Pierce lol.
