    That being said, I Think this team should take a good look at itself during the final minutes of the past few games and ask themselves which plan works best.

    As for the offensive line, it's... well.... OFFENSIVE... especially Mike Flynn.

    At the beginning of the game, the Chargers knew we were gonna stack the line against LT. So what did they do? Throw quick outs, and they were successful. That's what I think we should do, just to get the defense off our running game.

    Is that asking too much of Billick?
    Billick? Fassel calls the plays.

    Norcross,

    Im sorry but I believe that on 2nd and goal from the 1 you just pound it until you break free. We got too cute and got burned for it.

    Ultimatley, yes, Wilcox did fumble that ball, but that play should have never been called in the first place.

    The Ravens didn't deserve to win.

    But every year when a team goes 11-5, 12-4 or 13-3, they win games they don't "deserve to win". That's how you get to be 12-4. You win two or three "by accident". If you lose those games, you're 9-7. The Ravens have been very fortunate to have played against two of the league's coaching nitwits on successive weeks.

    Last week, Crennel handed them the game with that dumb ass decision to throw the ball with 3:21 left in the game.

    This week, it came down to the fact that the Chargers have ZERO faith in their QB to do anything except hand the ball off. What planet is Marty on, anyway? The Ravens have 110% faith in their QB...the Chargers have no faith in their QB. And that's how Baltimore won. You all think OUR playcalling is lame? Holy crap...San Diego's offense is as exciting as watching that NASA channel on TV where they just show the moon for eight hours.

    And, in the 4th quarter, when it mattered most, the Ravens execution was better than the Chargers.

    The botched field goal mid-way through the 4th quarter was a killer for San Diego. They just made too many dumb mistakes. And they're supposed to be a good football team? I don't see it. Or at least, I didn't see it today.

    The best thing about the game today? They can't take it away. The Ravens are 4-0.

    Bart Scott was a monster again. How freaking good is he?

    I couldn't get that either. Especially since in all honesty Rivers was near perfect on that opening drive. He only took one sack the entire game, and that was the final play of the game. Marty should have just let Rivers take a knee the entire second half and been done with it.

    As far as the shovel pass, the announcers said they should have run Jamal.
    You can't run Jamal when Jamal can't run. 2.7 YPC doesn't inspire a TD run. I have no problem with the shovel pass. I have a problem with Wilcox dropping the ball.

    Of course the Ravens have more confidence in McNair, he's a 13 year vet Rivers to all intents and purposes is a rookie. Geesh..
    I wish someone could explain why all of a sudden this team can't run the ball worth crap.
    On a side note, I think it's time Heap puts the Boller bashing to bed. Every week he's running his mouth about how great it is to have a great quarterback. The reality is, at some point this season Heap may have to play with Boller again so continually pounding on him isn't helpful. He made his point, he doesn't like Boller but as of now Boller is the second string guy so he should just shut his mouth.

    Excellent post. I perfect example of this was the 2005 Steelers. Did they "deserve" to win that postseason game against the Bengals when they knocked out Palmer? Did they "deserve" to win the AFC Championship game when Bettis fumbled the ball and Big Jen was lucky enough to make the game saving tackle? Not to mention, the missed FG by Vanderjack. Some could argue that the Steelers did not deserve their Championship, but why waste time with that? All that matters is the W.

    In the postseason, we will have to win games like this when trench play and strong defensive play are most important. Speaking of that, I am concerned that while our OL is good enough to win us these regular season games, I am not as optimistic about how they'd do in the postseason.

    Oh well....4-0 BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    It's a new season! It's a new day!

    You do know Heap and Boller are tight friends on the team right? After the TD, who do you think Heap was standing with on the sidelines? I don't think by talking about McNair he's "pounding" on Boller.

    Just because McNair is a better leader at this point (e.g., co-MVP, went to the Super Bowl) doesn't make Kyle a worse player. There's no question that the team's confidence is tremendously higher at thats a good thing.

    My hope is that Kyle learns from this. If he is going to learn, this is as good a way as any. I'm sure we'll have to depend on him at some point during the season.

    Remember, Grossman was picked lower than Boller in the same first round and Chicago fans were out for his head last year. Suddenly he's on top of the world.

    When I saw that Carey was ref AND he's from San Diego, I thought for sure we were doomed.

    No, I wasn't aware they were friends and you certainly wouldn't know it by the way Heap is blasting him every week. Maybe Boller needs to pick his "friends more carefully, because with friends like that he doesn't need any more enemies.

    AZ I've been reading some, and unfortunately I don't have any quotes of Heap calling Boller anything. In fact, I don't have any quotes from Heap mentioning Boller's name. Can you hit me with that link so I can see it myself?
