    I so wanted to eat my own words this week. Where are the kool-aid drinkers who thought we had a shot???

    I would say our 3rd and 4th stringers are playing like 3rd and 4th stringers.

    Our 1st stringers are that good either.. This group has done nothing since 2001.. 0-3 in the playoffs with the last two losses being at home..

    Cough, cough . . . I thought we had a shot before (a) I realized that neither Rolle or McAllister were playing, (b) Heap was out, and (c) McNair's little vacation did not help him throw the ball farther than about five yards.

    With backup CBs in the secondary, we are clearly not even close to elite -- even at full strength, we are not close to elite. McNair appears to have aged considerably since last season. Even if healthy, we wouldn't go far without better QB play.

    Re: Does anyone still think we have an elite team?

    Last year in November, I sat in the stands watching the Ravens-Steelers game, having just had prostate surgery. I had a sore ass, but the Ravens demolition of the Steelers made it all the worthwhile. This year, my ass is feeling better, but I watched my high from last year do a complete 180. The steelers planned a homecoming of sorts on national tv, and succeeded in totally humiliating the Ravens. They embarassed us, just as we did them last year. I know our team and coaching staff could care less (except for a few on the team), but, damn it, they totally humiliated us! The Ravens and Ravens organization should never forget this moment...but they will, and probably already have!!

    I thought we might be in the elite ballpark before the season.

    But after week 1 this team has struggled to get into the average ballpark.

    And after watching that game firsthand last night, I'd love to be average.

    But we're not. We're terrible.

    Pretty much.

    Before the season, I was thinking we were being comletely overlooked by the media who always talked about the "big 3".

    Looks like even the media overrated this team as we are a bad/mediocre team.

    Re: Does anyone still think we have an elite team?

    As much as it pains me to say it, no, we are not an elite team.

    I agree with PP, I thought before the season that this team could go places.

    Not anymore.

    Re: Does anyone still think we have an elite team?

    No, I have to say I haven't felt we were anywhere near elite for a long time. We haven't had an offense - ever - and you can't be elite without putting points on the board. Steve Young and Emmitt Smith made some very salient comments after the game last night that I totally agree with. One being that we have ridden the defense for years and given little thought to developing a consistent offense.
    I have to say I have not only lost patience with Billick but with Ozzie as well. It seems to me he is drafting a lot of clinkers lately, which explains why we have so few backups that can play. Those so called cornerbacks last night were a disgrace. And Yamon Figurs is a waste of a roster spot. I felt all along dragging McNair here was a mistake, but I understand why we did it since our coaching staff has displayed absolutely no ability to develop a young quarterback. Why waste a draft pick on one!
    As embarrasing as their play was last night their constant yapping like a bunch of terriers was even worse.
    I absolutely agree it's time to sit a lot of starters and spend the rest of this season really evaluating what we have to work with for the future.

    If you thought you heard Emmitt Smith make even one salient comment, you must have been very drunk after the game. Not that I blame you, of course.

    I agree about the yapping, though -- when you're getting blown out, just shut up and play.
