    Ravens Get An "F"



    I ran across this article on Fox Sports from Adam Schein.

    http://msn.foxsports.com/other/story/7493100

    I think is sums up perfectly how the Ravens are doing.

    F
    Ravens — The play calling has been horrible. The play of the starting quarterback was inept. The turnovers are ghastly. The repetitive penalties are inexplicable. Other than that, it's been a good season in Baltimore. To be 4-7 after starting 4-2, with the talent on this team, is just a total letdown and waste.

    Hits the nail on the head. A letdown of a season.

    Notice how much of that criticism is related to the coach...

    The playcalling is related to the coach. The others are not.

    We had +1 billion turnover rating last year. This year we have -1 billion. Same coach. My explanation? It's on the players.

    Doesn't mean we don't deserve an F, I just don't think you can hang all those things on the coach.

    His definitions and arguments were so clear in his own mind that he was unable to understand how any reasonable person could honestly differ with him.

    I never said that, but you can make an argument for the penalties :/

    I agree -- I'm pretty tired of the lazy "lets blame it on all Billick" point of view. Of course he has some responsibility for this train wreck of a season, but you have to take other factors into consideration too, like all the injuries this team has sufferred, which I don't think can be blamed all on him.
