    Re: Kyle Boller is our Future!



    Kyle Boller made big-league throws, but at times he looked like he still belonged in Pop Warner. He's an asset as a backup but also showed why the Ravens struggled against quality teams when he was the starter. It wasn't bad for a player who has had limited repetitions."
    That quote was of course from the Tub-O-Goo we're not supposed to be quoting in this forum.
    This sums up my thoughts on Boller's play, today. Take away the 77 yard TD pass, and Boller was Boller. Tripping and fumbling. Fumbling and tripping.
    That was a quote from you.

    If you want accuracy, you said Boller had an "ok" game. You have yet to say Boller had a good/decent game. In every post I've read where you've dicussed Boller today you were making excuses as to why he played well.

    The only one of you... people... to say Boller played well today is Mobtown.

    Boller's future is on the bench of another NFL team. He has no future here.
    Care to prove that... never mind.

    What is Kyles rating for the year? How many points have we scored in the two games where Kyle has played more than 2 quarters?

    Re: Kyle Boller is our Future!

    Here's a guy who beat the hapless Packers and Minn last year to fall flat on his face after that.
    Uh, those hapless Vikings were a playoff team if they beat us and have a damn good pass defense.

    If we can take away Boller's TD can we take away the pick as well? I thought he was jittery and frankly I think he needs to figure out some way to relax in the pocket. I understand why his detractors won't give him credit, he makes them nervous because he plays nervously. When he settles in he can play great. The team needs to work on his brain with somebody to help him keep calm. Maybe hypnosis would help. Seriously.

    No, Steve didn't put the points all up but he led the come back in the last couple of mins. Boller is still panicking at the los by dropping the ball, and not looking for his secondary and third receivers and is still inaccurate in part because his feet are set when he throws according to guys on radio today.
    Wait a minute, you're saying that you listened to the game on the radio and are commenting on how Boller played because of that? Please tell me you watched the game.

    Boller completed 62% of his passes today. That's not inaccurate. He averaged a little over 8 YPA so he wasn't dumping the ball of either.

    He's still inconsistent which is why you don't want him starting long term.
    Well in two games this year he's gone over 20 points both times. Not really sure if that's inconsistant...

    I've already suggested making him run a mile before every game.

    Take away the 77 yard TD pass, and Boller was 60% with a TD and and INT and an 88QB rating and we still win the game.
    Fixed.

    I mean come on. Take away Boller's 77 yard pass and you still have an 85 yard 11 play touchdown drive, 20 points, and a victory.

    Hell, take away the long bomb, let's take away the pick then too.


    What's amazing is that if I were Kyle I would have wanted out of this city since the fans here hated me so much. And yet all the guy wants to do is help this team win. He takes control of the offense today and does his part to CLINCH A PLAYOFF SPOT FOR THE RAVENS. How about we give the guy a little kudo?

    Ravens fans are giving Boller props. It's these... people... who don't seem very happy that we won the game and reached the play-offs.

    Re: Kyle Boller is our Future!

    Boller will never, ever get credit for anything he ever does in this town. This kid has taken more than anyone should have to, & keeps coming back for more. His problem, thru no fault of his own, is he will always be tied to Billick, because he is seen as "Billick's Boy". The guy does what he is supposed to do & people find things to hate him for. After the light rail ride to Timonium today, I got in the car & heard that people just wanted to rip Boller on the radio. Why? He came off the bench & did his job people. I swear these people live to just rip Boller. They not only wish the Ravens will lose, but that McNair wil get hurt so not only will they have the team & Billick to rip, but also Boller. Boller led the Ravens to a playoff clinching win yoday & kept the momentu, going. The kid has obviously paid attention to McNair & Steve talked to Kyle thru the whole game. When Boller leaves here after next year, he will take with him the lessons he has learned from here, along with what he has learned from McNair, & go to a team & fans happy to have him, & be a successful QB. All these haters here will be screaming about how could we let this guy go. Get off his back & support him or get off the Ravens bandwagon & go get a new team to support. You either support the all the Ravens as a team or you don't support the Ravens. It's as simple as that.

    The most hilarious part of this whole thing is I haven't seen anyone say Kyle Boller sucks or he was horrible.

    He played a decent game at home vs the Browns.

    Some of us don't think he's good enough to lead us to victory in the playoffs.

    Stinger said

    "What more do you want from your backup QB?"

    My answer is nothing.

    He's a backup. What he did today is fine.

    I just don't want him in when we're in a do or die situation in the playoffs.

    What is so difficult to understand about that? And furthermore, why does it cause certain posters to freak out and start accusing others of wanting the Ravens to lose with Boller.

    I'd certainly like "proof" of that.

    Re: Kyle Boller is our Future!

    An excellent summation of the reasoning behind my disdain for these... people...

    Say Boller has a good game and the response is, "Well take away his 77 yard TD pass".

    If you don't think Boller is a good QB, that's fine. I've never said he was and still don't know if he will be. Give him credit when he does something good though just like you would/should any other player.

    It's the people like Trap and PR who bash the guy no matter how he plays that make us question their loyalty.

    Re: Kyle Boller is our Future!

    PP I also answered your question in the other thread about would I be ok with Boller in the playoffs. If the playoffs are here in Baltimore, Boller's home record clearly shows he could win here. On the road, who knows but the odds aren't in his favor. Of course, if we have to go to San Diego, I am not counting on many teams anyway. I want them to come here.


    Excellent synopsis by Mike Preston on Boller.
    Tell you what, PR. You take Preston. Lewis had a 100 yard day and a touchdown and Preston gave HIM a C+ too.

    I'll take Boller's teammates:

    Re: Kyle Boller is our Future!

    Wow!!! Looks like the Madness has restarted.

    Why do we need these types of threads anymore?

    McNair is our current starter, and Boller is a great backup.

    Boller may or may NOT be our future.

    Lets see Boller win a meaningful game on the road before we label him our future. For every good game Boller has, a bad game is Forgotten.

    Must we still have these Boller/McNair factions?




  13. #43

    Re: Kyle Boller is our Future!

    There are no McNair/Boller factions. Everybody thinks McNair should remain the starter.

    Some of us are just curious to see what Boller can do with a good QB to learn from and an offensive system that hasn't proven to be a QB killer in the past.

    The others hate Boller and will bash him no matter how well he plays.

    Re: Kyle Boller is our Future!

    That's just it Heap86. The only ones still in some "faction" are the ones spending this evening taking everything Kyle did today and pissing on it.

    McNair is the starter. McNair is the one that led us to this point. He's the one that's going to lead us through the playoffs. No one is disputing that.

    Seems to me as far as me, Darb, most of the other people here, Billick, Neuheisal, Mason, Clayton, Trevor Pryce, and others believe is that we have two QB's on this roster who have the ability to get us to Miami. McNair is the guy. Between the two of them, he gives us the best chance. But if we have to play a home playoff game, I'm not pissing in my pants if Boller has to play it. On the road? Yeah, I'm nervous.

    Boller had to step in today and play the game that clenched us the playoffs. He did just that. But all of a sudden once again it's, "well he played the worst team in the league", or "Hey, take away his 2 touchdown passes and he had a horrible game.", and all the marginalizing that goes along with the typical Kyle Boller post-game critique.

    That's what this arguement is about right now. No one is challenging Steve McNair here. That thought never even crossed my mind.

    Listen to Kyle's post-game presser on the baltimoreravens.com website. He talks about what it means to have McNair here helping him. He also mentioned watching McNair set up that same throw to Williams early in the game, and it helped him to watch what to look for on the TD pass. And remember right before that throw, Boller actually shifted IN THE POCKET. Maybe McNair is really helping him on the field.

    Re: Kyle Boller is our Future!

    Points on which all Ravens fans should be able to agree today:

    (1) Boller did more than well enough to put us in a position to win and clinch a playoff berth.

    (2) The game was too close for comfort for too long against a bad team at home, and part of that was due to Boller's clumsiness and mistakes, and part to the defense being off their game on a few drives and part to the other injuries.

    (3) Any reasonable person would feel much more confident about our remaining regular season games and the playoffs if/when Steve is back compared to if Kyle is the starter. He is, after all, the backup.
