    Seriously. I think the Offense gets a HUGE shot of confidence in themselves that Kyle Boller basically dueled the best QB in the league to a draw, the receivers were making catches and getting open, and the offensive line can actually make holes and protect the QB. So perhaps this is the piece this offense needed to synch up.

    And the defense is going to come out PISSED! I don't want to be Dallas Clark coming across the middle Sunday night.
    This post is spot on!

    I believe the Ravens will come out fired up and put a beatdown on the Irsays. Kyle played a GREAT game last night and I'm surprised I haven't gotten a nasty gram from my apt complex, since I was screaming and yelling the whole night.

    Boller showed that he can hang, it was a great contest.

    And you all that were at the game, you were great! The crowd was LOUD and PROUD the whole way!

    Now there's someone who should not be officiating. I don't care how skilled he is at throwing flags - apparently not much - anyone willing to use such obnoxious language with a player should *clearly* not be officiating. If a ref said that to my son, who is eight and plays soccer, and for what it's worth, white, and *is* a boy, there would be hell to pay. Saying that to a grown black man is a absolute smack in the face.

    Not excusing what Bart did, which was on the short list of game-costing blunders, but there's something that should be taken up with the league.

    I give Boller an A-. His qb rating was 100+. With mediocre pass protection he created all night long.

    I agree with the posters who suggested we are afraid to give him good marks because that means we endorse him as starter. Me, I'll wait and see what's in the stable next fall, and I think most of the rest of you will do the same.
    Good job, Kyle. :toast:

    Re: Boller's Performance

    I guess I was remiss in my last post, in that I forgot to give the Ravens Qb a grade. Boller did a great job and showed he's a trooper, and can play with less than adequate O-line protection.

    Like Festivus, I'd give him an A-. Still, a much better QB than we saw in 2005.

    Re: Boller's Performance

    I don't think anyone here will confuse me with a Boller fan but I was happy with his play Monday. I give him a solid B plus positives for toughness. He made a mistake but did more than enough to pull this game out. Hopefully this game can be a confidence builder for him and he'll use it as a springboard for bigger and better things.

    No doubt defenders get away with shots on Boller that they wouldn't get away with, if it were say Brady or Manning.

    I thought I saw a helmet-to-helmet hit on one of the replays, but I could be wrong. He did take some vicious hits and came back like the tough summabitch he is!!!

    Re: Boller's Performance

    I am going to give Boller a Solid A. The one pick, though hurt us terribly, was due to him getting drilled.

    This kid is alot tougher then I ever thought and God Damn he keeps getting back up. Boller is definitly no Akili Smith who dropped out of the league because of the beating he was taking in Cincy.

    Honestly if Boller had better protection I really believe he could be a very good QB in this league. I hope he continues this. Even if we lose every game the rest of the way but he puts up the numbers then I will throw my support behind him for next year

    How 'bout that play he made an 3d and long, eluding two near-sacks and finding Darling on the sideline. Sweet!!!

    Re: Boller's Performance

    If that throw gets to Darling, and we go up 14, everyone is commending Boller for taking the deep shot and getting perhaps the game-deciding score. Unfortunately, the wind caught the throw (the same wind that would have limited Stover to, at best, a 40 yard attempt, and we were at the 32 when the pick was thrown after the false start.)

    After the pick, a hold had the Patriots at first and twenty around the 30. The defense ought to be able to stop a team in that situation, just as it should have been able to stop the final drive in this and the one in the Cleveland game that tied the score. Instead, it gave up a 43 yard catch and run that put the Pats in field goal range. That isn't Boller's fault, Mike Preson! Nor is Rex Ryan deciding not to pressure Brady on the final drive, choosing the "Prevent Victory" defense instead.

    How did the pick hurt us terribly? We were ahead when he threw it. The Patriots kick a field goal on their ensuing possession and we're still ahead. There was no guarantee we scored with a field goal. After we scored the first TD we never trailed in the game until the last 44 seconds. We were winning or tied.

    Despite the pick, that game should have been won. It wasn't lost on the pick, the ed reed fumble, or anything other than a defensive collapse with ref assistance. And getting the ball kicked to us at our 35 yard line didn't help our chances of getting Figurs to return the ball for good yardage.

    Wink Re: Boller's Performance

    A-

    He outperformed Brady, the NFL's top QB. This is the Kyle Boller that we saw in the December '05 night games and all of last season.

    I'm looking for a couple more good passing games and some more gutsy blocks, and our FO can make better use of our high draft picks than wasting one on a raw rookie QB. Coupled with the better OL play, I'm even starting to get optimistic that the rebuilding may not have to be as extensive as it had been looking like earlier -- if we can pick up a talented pass rusher and CB, a few other nips & tucks, and the other starters can remain healthy, we may even have a shot at a WC contender next year.

    btw: I wonder what Steve McNair was thinking last night.

    Are you referring to the block Kyle laid down to spring McGahee for a nice run? I meant to say something about that. That block was fantastic. Even more so considering it was a QB!!

    Re: Boller's Performance

    That block combined with the one earlier (I think vs NYJ), he might very well be the best run blocking QB in the league.
