    Good job Troy! Lets put in a solid game next week and heres to you giving the coach's son a run for his money next preseason!!
    I'm all for playing him, by the way. I don't think he did anything impressive, but what the hell, why not play him. It's not like Atlanta years ago, playing some goobers while Brett Favre sat on the bench.

    I am once again surprised at the suggestion that Boller is 'the coach's son', you'd think after how bad McNair stunk it up, with Boller on the bench, people would see how wrong that claim is. Nevertheless it persists. . .

    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.

    Although Troy is merely a rookie and has had minimal practice with the team, I think he did well. Consider the TD pass: Which of our QBs have shown that kind of accuracy. He put the ball right into the receivers hands.
    Exactly right, That TD was a glimmer of hope. Things will get better with time and repetition for troy. Hey, Maybe it wont but it sure is fun seeing him move around and trying. We all know that other positions need to be upgraded next season with some new blood mixed in.
    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...

    My grade for Troy? But that is also for any QB that plays behind this Offensive line
    In retrospect, Troy deserves a C

    Playing behind a young, makeshift O-line the kid did great. Remember, this was his first NFL game. I remember Unitas' 1st game - AWFUL!!!!

    When this kid learns more about the offense, whats its like in the NFL (as opposed to college), and gets injured players healthy again in front of him, and an improved offensive line, he will look very good in my opinion.

    Thats my story and I'm sticking with it. No matter how short he is...



    Well, I have seen Troy play in the shoe a few times and believe me he can play this game. I totally agree with Jester. Build a team around him and let him play. Trust me, you wont be sorry. Ask Lloyd Carr. I am surprised by some of the lame statements from "football" fans? LMAO look up Dan Marino, Elway, or any other rookie quarterback's first game, great job Troy! Boller had 13 games to show what he has, he fails miserably F- to Kyle.

    B+ This guy exudes confidence; displays pocket presence; has a cannon for an arm; feels pressure in the pocket (which you definitely need playing behind this line); and is a winner! Start him next game, and beyond! You won't be sorry!

    Oh please, I can give you a number of times Boller has thrown equally beautiful passes including the gem to Darling for a TD against NE. For the most part I saw a QB running for his life that threw very few good passes. He also tended to hold the ball too long just like Boller, which for our OL is about as long as it takes you to drop back and say "Oh Sh" before you get nailed.

    Marino had a 117 rating in his first game and threw for 2 TDs and no picks. Maybe you should hold off on being "surprised by some of the lame statements from "football" fans."

    what is so stellar about 2 TD's? Stick with Kyle have at it, I'll become a lions fan, they lost less in a row than the Ravens.

    Billick has a son?


    And while I am thinking about it while people are talking about how much pocket presense Troy has, the fumble has been mysteriously forgotten. While we are talking about how much of a winner Troy is over Boller, the offense scored 6 points yesterday, and other than the TD throw never even touched the redzone.

    And while I blame the OL and receivers for yesterday, some of you out there would have skewered Boller for the same game.

    Its the hypocrisy I can never really figure out from some.

    Unlike Boller, Troy hasn't been injured behind our offensive offensive line yet ...Let him get a blown out knee in his first year and we'll see how comfortable he will feel in that pocket

    Injuries, or not, Troy has the intangibles that makes him a playmaker, and a winner! We do not need to draft a QB in this year's draft; we have more pressing needs! I would start Troy the last game, and let him battle Kyle for next year's start!

    I have nothing against Troy...But what about the main intangible....The Offensive line?? We've already had 2 QB's go down this year and I'm just waiting for Troy's turn...Maybe next week we'll have to plug in Cullen Finnerty half way into the game...I was very concerned for Troy yesterday...That O-line has NO stability, NONE!
