    At this point try anything. Let fans come in and try to make some plays. ANYTHING!

He stepped up in the pocket and made something happen. Boller has no pocket awareness. It's either drop back and throw, or tuck and run the second protection begins to break down. He just doesn't have what it takes. It's time to take a chance on another young QB who has the intangibles that Boller doesn't have.

    Ok fine, but don't give me the Peyton Manning shit. How many times was he remotely hurried last night?? NONE! How many times was Peyton Manning sacked yesterday? NONE!

    DON"T EVEN ATTEMPT to confuse Boller's shitty play yesterday with anything we tried and failed to do on defense to Peyton Manning. Please don't.

    What happens when you hurry or pressure Peyton Manning? He throws 6 interceptions and gets rattled. That is a FACT.




    - OK I won't give you any of that "Peyton Manning" shit; I will give you some of that Troy Smith shit instead. Behind that same line that Boller played behind, feeling the same pressure from a 3rd string defense that Boller played against until he was yanked, Troy Smith, who hasn't played a down in a live NFL game until last night, was able to make a play, or actually several plays, under pressure that Boller could not.

    Boller has all the "stat sheet" characteristics of a qb - tall, strong arm, perfect qb build.

    Smith does not have the "stat sheet" characteristics.

    Smith has the know-how and competitive mindset.

    Boller has the knowledge that he shouldn't have been drafted as high as he was and is still resting on his "stat sheet" laurels that his agent was able to use to swindle Billick into falling in love with him at the combine.

    At this point, Smith wins the job for the rest of the season.


    Why can't we blame a single wrong on Boller in some of you guy's minds? He has done NOTHING thus far in his career. No playoffs, no meaningful victories. NOTHING - except waste the productive careers of Ray Lewis and Jonathon Ogden (and Jamal Lewis to a degree; 2000 yards as a human battering ram is inhuman).

    I still support McNair, even as a backup; if we have learned anything from the Boller fiasco, we need to groom a young gun behind a vet. Restructure McNair's contract and ensure he is healthy and bring him back. He did much better in the 20+ games for the Ravens than Boller has his whole career.

    Nice post. Its a shame that Ogden didnt get another super bowl. The only bright side is that they did have one good year.

    I'll remember you said that if Troy Smith starts next week and loses to Miami.

    Listen to me very fucking carefully, because you didn't the first time. I AM NOT AGAINST STARTING TROY SMITH.

    Let me repeat that, so that it sinks in for you.

    I AM NOT AGAINST STARTING TROY SMITH.

    Did you get it that time?


    Now, that said, Smith has to come in and run the exact same "Run up the middle, Run up the middle, Short pass" offense that Billick can't seem to get away from. And so after some short success, the defense will figure out how to stop us, and we'll keep going nowhere fast.

    BILLICK HAS TO GIVE UP THE OFFENSE OR THIS WILL ONCE AGAIN BE FOR NOTHING.

    BILLICK HAS TO GIVE UP THE OFFENSE.

    One last time, just for effect:

    BILLICK HAS TO GIVE UP THE OFFENSE.

    Re: Go With Smith!!!!!

    Yes play Smith the rest of the year. We all know now Boller isn't worth anything can't believe they signed him for another year.

    I don't care if we lose three (3) games with Troy Smith but as a season ticket holder who feel that I totally wasted my money this year I want to see Smith play. Hey we already are laughed at all over the NFL.


    Can't wait to hear Billick's press conference today. Hey if you take the tape of the past three it will most likely be the same shit from Billick.

    Play Troy Smith and start the rebuilding.

    Re: Go With Smith!!!!!

    Boller is garbage.... He may be a nice guy, teammate , whatever but as a NFL player he stinks....END OF STORY.

    He may mix in a quality start once a season but the rest of his starts are mediocre to dreadful.


    This team should be starting the next canidate for the position , whomever that may be.

    Re: Go With Smith!!!!!

    LOL nice melt by stinger.

    I concede. The Boller we saw on Monday is clearly NOT the Boller we will see every week. I wanted the guy to turn the corner
    We all wanted boller to do well. He just doesnt have it, its thats simple. it wont happen here or anywhere else. Hes had more than enough chances to prove himself and he has failed every single time.
    WOW! I feel so fortunate that the Ravens did what they had to do to make this happen. Thank you. My Heart is with the Raven....My Heart is with Baltimore and its great fans. What can I say. Here We Go!!! --Ray Lewis
    No, Thank you Ray...

    I did not want to have to do this, but I think I have to retire my signature.

    Yeap Billick said Troy will only start if Boller is injured.If we don't know what we have with Kyle now.Then we will never know.Let Troy get the feel of the NFL game,and the speed of NFL defensive starters.

    What better time than to start cutting your teeth on a winless team like Miami?
    Put the smile back on your face.This is a 60 minute ball game.

    Billick is stuck in a Boller rut....he won't start or give significant playing time to Smith unless he's told to or Boller gets hurt....

    I agree! This team needs to find a consistent leader. I really believe that the Ravens need to get Smith some more playing time to see what he can (or can not) do. If need be, they can draft a QB; however, if Troy looks promising, they can draft another position. Smith looks to be a leader out there; strong arm; athleticism; but raw; so let's see what he can do. I liked what I saw last night.

    What the hell. Check out my new sig.
    Festivus

    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.
