    Re: Do we make the playoffs?



    What does it matter if they make the playoffs? (which they will)

    This isn't a championship caliber coaching staff.

    And Joe, the receivers, and the D (this year) aren't good enough to overcome that.

    We missed our best chance last year when we had Pagano and a healthy dominant D.

I'd like to hear which of the last 4 games you think the Ravens ought to win, and why (and no "shut up, that's why!" either).

    wake up call, we will get beat next week by RG3 .... maybe a wild card.

    Of course they will and win the division. But for the longterm good of the organization it might be better if they dont and blow some things up.

    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.
    WHO does Smith have? I'll give you prob the best TE in the game right now, but Crabtree? A washed up Moss? Gore? I'd take SF OL but our supporting cas beats theirs hand down and by a long long way.

    That said A Smith couldn't work under Cam. He's getting traded and will be a starter, but it won't be too a retard lead team like ours.

    I'm not disregarding it! It was a great play, one of Rice's best of the year. But you have to look at the totality of his game, and one GREAT play doesn't balance out a bunch of weaker ones. I just don't judge Rice to have had a great game overall. And yeah, after going back and looking at the numbers again I do admit Pierce probably didn't have a better game. I'm going to have to watch the game again to get a better sense.

    Look, the bigger problem here is that their USE of Ray Rice is bizarre. They ran him up the middle behind Birk and--who would have thought--it went poorly! They never made a real effort to get him the ball in space. And then they took him off the field the ENTIRE 4th quarter.

    There weren't a lot of holes and Rice missed a few that were there. When it was clear that runs straight up the middle weren't working (for whatever reason), they could have adjusted and gone to something else. They didn't, it kept Rice from having a more consistent game.

    Ummm.. okay. So yes, the 49ers have a far superior TE and OL. Frank Gore is, believe it or not, having a better year than Ray Rice, so they're better at RB. At WR, Crabtree is essentially a younger, faster, better version of Anquan Boldin; they've rotated Mario Manningham and Randy Moss at the other WR spot and they've gotten just a hair under 700 yards there, which is essentially the same as Torrey Smith.

    Not to mention a far superior defense and one of the best offensive minds in the NFL. But yeah, Alex Smith doesn't have anybody backing him up.

    Look, Alex Smith > Joe Flacco is a joke. It's the kind of thing you say if you want to make it clear to everyone that you don't know football.

    We WILL make the playoffs and win the division as well.

    We have tie breakers over CIN and PIT (CIN for Division record and PIT for conf record)

    CIN and PIT still play each other. so one team will lose at least one more game.

    I think we can still have a 1st rd bye if we beat DEN if we lose to them we wont and will be the 3 or 4 seed win at home and probably lose at Houston and have a small shot at DEN. But really once you get in the playoffs anything can happen.

    Re: Do we make the playoffs?

    You know what's funny? Losing this game today may set us up for a WC game against Pit...

    There's a massive, massive difference between saying they can lose each individual game and saying they can lose ALL four games.

    Re: Do we make the playoffs?

    I believe the Ravens win next week. They will be fired up after this loss and the Redskins are just not a good team. After that, it's anyone's guess what will happen. They close with a brutal stretch of three games. They had a good chance of picking up the number 2 seed, but I believe they threw it away today. Win today and next week, and all they would have to do, in all likelihood, to get the number 2 seed wound be beating Denver at home. Now, unless they run the table, they are going to need serious help. Getting to the SB out of the 3 or 4 seed will be very hard with the way this team plays on the road.

    Really? Look at the remaining schedules for the Bengals, Steelers & Colts. The only difficult opponent for either CIN or PGH (besides each other in Week 16) is DAL, & the Skins proved on Turkey Day they can be had. The Colts play home&home with HOU but their other two opponents are TEN and @KC. It is entirely possible that going into Week 17 the two AFCN rivals stand no worse than 9-6 and Indy is 10-5. In that case, if the Ravens have not managed to beat WAS or DEN or NYG, the loser of BAL@CIN in Week 17 would almost certainly go home.

    So which of the Ravens' remaining opponents do you think they will beat, and why?

    Can't argue with that--the rot seems to have gone pretty deep.

    Re: Do we make the playoffs?

    The Manning brothers will make mince meat of the Ravens defense (you can bank on two losses there). If the Raven's couldn't beat a 3rd string 37year old quarterback in their own house they will not be RG3 in DC. My guess is that week 17 in Cinci will decide their playoff fate this year - and I don't think it looks good.

    You have to remember that this is the offensive juggernaut that put two offensive field goals up on the board against Chargers and won the KC game with three field goals. They are a bad team that is likely to get worse.

    If the Ravens do implode you you can say goodbye to Cam.

    And exactly which teams can you not say this about?

    Re: Do we make the playoffs?

    This team had been getting by and winning despite really Bad coaching.. You guys keep laying the blame at one persons feet, This is not the case. Flacco need to take his slice of the suckage, Its been 5 years man there is no
    next step. Cam is hell bent on running his ancient offense, and harbs, most of the time is clueless in his time out and challenge usage. Do we make the playoffs? Yes. Can we win a road game and go to the SB? Hey Greenbay and the Giants did it..
