    Re: Butt Kicked



    I whistled past the graveyard this time last year. We looked like shit most of that preseason too. But hey, it's a veteran team and they don't need preseason to get ready. Right?

    After Indy and Tennessee, the season was wrecked. They weren't ready.

    I don't want to see a repeat. If you are going the play the game, play it right. Play the starters on Thursday for a half. They need it.

    Please explain to me how we've looked like shit, for MOST of this pre-season?

    Lance you misread Camden. He said that season and was referring to last year.

    I think everyone agrees that we looked damn good against the Giants and Eagles. Maybe laying an egg in Minny was good for the fans in the sense that its tempering expectations. And it lets the players know that if they want to win on the road a performance like that won't get it done in the NFL.

    He was referring to them both. He said, "We looked like shit most of that preseason TOO."

    TOO, meaning also, or in addition to. "We looked like shit last season also." And I assume that also, would be referring to THIS current preseason. If he finished his sentence it would have read something to the effect of, "We looked like shit most of that preseason, just as we have this preseason."

    Sorry to get technical, but camden (as well as many others) are indeed implying that it's the same story as last year. "We look horrible in pre-season, and it will translate to regular season." Truth is, we haven't looked horrible at all in the pre-season. Our offense had one bad half of football. Aside from that, we've looked like a much different team than last year.

    Being as how the 1st team offense has only managed 1 touchdown, including being shut out for an entire half - I wouldn't say they have played well. Not to mention the horrible red zone play and terrible 2-minute drill. Then you have the boneheaded penalties that extended drives for the opponent in the Philly game, and the fact that this team continues to sleepwalk through road games.

    We had one TD drive that could have very well ended with a pick on the long attempt to Mason. Other than that we have fizzled out on sustained drives in game 2 and not gotten much at all going in game 3. That is one good drive that we got a break on, a few nice drives that ended with FG attempts and a lot of stalled drives. And it has been getting worse, not better.

    I think a fan of this team should be concerned and want to see some good shit this Thursday.

    As long as the o-line preforms well this week, every position is a proven(sp?) one. Just proving that they can play in an NFL game. Personally, I'm not worried. Yes, I think we're going to get creamed when we play the Bucs, but after that we won't lose more than 7 games.

    Thanks Greg and Iosac. I didn't think that I needed to play Captain Obvious, but I guess there are planty of purple-colored glasses out there.

    The defense has played the underneath WAY too soft and the offense (and I'm spreaking of the starters in both instances, not future Wendy's fry cooks) has been inefficient. 12 play drives are great but not if they result in field goal attempts. This offense has a mandate now - keep the defense off the field AND score TOUCHDOWNS. Sorry, but I'm not seeing it. If McNair doesn't dive and barely make it to the corner of the EZ, what is there to hang our hats on for three games?

    If you like what you've seen thus far, you have a low standard. This team competes in arguably the toughest division in football, and we have a brutal schedule. The Ravens can't afford to waltz into Tampa dancing and prancing and playing like they are the '85 Bears or the Montana 49ers. Because they are not, and a team like Tampa is liable to take McNair's head off. Think you were in shock when Boller went down vs. Indy? A similar incident with McNair would make the season look like this:
