    Good point, Indy always kicks our asses, God I hate that. I friggin hate Manning more and more every year.

    It's games like these that truly expose where the Ravens need to improve in their roster.

    QB- They didn't want Flacco to play this year. There was no other option. He will have games like this. Some would think the comparison to Ryan is fair, it isn't. He has a #1 reciever with size and speed. The staff is so scared at Flacco making mistakes that they handle him with kid gloves. You can't max protect every play and only send out 2 recievers. Show some confidence in him and he should reward you. Otherwise why did they draft him?

    RB- Willis McGahee is HURT. He has been hurt and conditioning has been questioned several times. He had no burst. McClain is 260 and should run North-South. Not on Draws or Sweeps but straight ahead. Rice got time and didn't do badly. Again show confidence in a kid that took all the snaps in pre-season.

    WR- This corps has been awful for years. Heap is not a part of the battle plan anymore as he has to help a weak line. Mason is a possession reciever. Clayton runs a great reverse. Williams when healthy could be a beneficial. Marcus Smith? Inactive. No separation from this group and no one who can get behind the defense.

    O-Line- Anyone figure why Willie Anderson got cut? Brown, Yanda, Grubbs are a good start. Gaither needs reps and Terry is adequate at best. Injuries will make this unit woeful

    D-Line - Strongest group. Ngata should be a pro bowler, Gregg will be missed. Bannan has been exceptional. Pryce is too old. Suggs gets sacks against inferior competition and talks more than he plays.

    LBs- All around solid. Scott must improve in coverage. Lewis can still make clutch plays.

    DBs- A concerted effort was made to strengthen this area. Reed and McAlister are both playing hurt. Landry is out. Leonhard is decent. Ivy is undersized. Walker is simply not good. Washington and Rolle are both out. This unit hangs by a thread.

    K- Matt Stover - It's been a great career but it's time.

    ST- How has a strength of the team turned into a liability? Coverage is awful. Return game 101 - Don't run out a kick 8 yards into your endzone. Figurs has been too tenative.

    My long winded point here is that the roster is need of changes next, now that we have a new coach. They need to get younger and quicker. If you didn't get that from Sunday's game, you never will.

    You guys are funny.

    Strap on your helmets and get ready to root for a team that's not going to win the Super Bowl this year. Think you can handle it?

    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.

    Thank you...THANK YOU...THANK YOU!!!!!

    Not only for having something to throw at the "Flacco is a Bust, Flacco is a Bust..Bbrrraawwwkkkk...Flacco is a Bust" parrots, but also for doing it so I didn't have to look up the stats myself.

    Good point, Indy always kicks our asses, God I hate that. I friggin hate Manning more and more every year.
    So do I, only because he doesn't wear the Purple and Black....and cause sometimes he sounds like Foghorn Leghorn.

    Lets face it, there is only one way to deal with yesterdays game:

    till you then you get to:
    Future MVP of Superbowl LXIX

    Also consider that Flacco is really adjusting from the Delaware, low talent system, to the NFL. We're going to have games like this. Very soon, he'll start putting it together and the mistakes will start to fade away.

    But yeah, I do think you have to consider what he's working with. DWil and Clayton are starting to play better, but they certainly aren't going to help him establish a long passing game. Heap is getting put in blocking situations too often to be effective. Mason and Flacco are on fire, and that should show us something to hope for.

    Yes, and he was in the mix to start Week 1 from the very beginning of the preseason up until he was named the starter, and he came from California, which is a Div 1A school.

    I can't argue that he had more to work with in a passing game. I believe he was working with Heap, Travis Taylor, and Marcus Robinson.

    I can argue he had a better line though. That line paved the way for Jamal to rush for 2066 yards!

    Re: My Film Study

    My only problem with Flac yesterday was the play to D-Will that ended up being Intercepted. DWill had good separation and if Flac airs it out it's 6 for us instead of picked.

    He always seems to underthrow the deep balls, especially to D-Will, I hope this is just a timing issue and works itslef out, he did the same thing against Tennessee. It's like he just underestimates the speed of our receivers as well as the DB's.

    If he can fix this.... .... the sky's the limit!

    He's underthrowing short too though, and he's floating screen passes.

    All things that can be fixed, but they need to be fixed now.

    Just as a little side note...the most trouble he has had this season is against teams that run the cover 2. I am not saying this is an excuse but it definitly shows where he needs to work in film study. He has to understand how to pick apart the zone and use it to his advantage.

    Of course to do this you need a line that can protect for more than a 3 step drop.

    PP makes a great point that our WR corp is average at best. So yes, his targets are limited and that may explain the 1 TD. I get that.

    But, as Stinger pointed out in another post, it's one thing if these were rookie mistakes. It's quite another when he stares down receivers, throws into double and triple coverage and cant seem to learn the very basic of QB skills -- throwing the ball away!

    David Steele and, dare I say it, Preston, both point out something I had forgotten or simply chose to block out of my mind -- Flacco missed the most basic of passes, having dirted short throws and throwing high on the throws to the RB out of the backfield.

    My GM haze has worn off so I am not going to thrown in my STFU card just yet. But my concern for his abilities have increased a lot of the past three games.

    camdenyard, instead of insults, how about debating some facts? Where am I "wrong" here?
    I heard on the radio today that Troy Aikman, Eli Manning, and Peyton Manning all threw 7 picks in their first 5 games.

    I think that if you're evaluating a rookie QB, especially one without prior NCAA Div. I experience, you don't go so much by the on field performance the first year. You look to see if he has poise, an arm, pocket awareness, able to throw accurately on timing patterns. That sort of thing.

    Year 2 should show marked improvement as long as the team has a decent OL and recievers. If he isn't showing anything by then it's reasonable to start worrying in earnest.

    So far Flacco has looked way better than Eli Manning in his first year.

    Huh?
    This guy couldn't find an open receiver if he had a strobe light on his head. Pocket awarness? He stands back there like a statue waiting to get sacked while trying to find Mason. His accuracy both short and long has left much to be desired. Doesn't ever step up in the pocket. Basically he looks like what he is, and should be on the bench learning. Now the kid in Atalanta has showed these things, but not Flacco.

    Of course that's just my opinion, I could be wrong.

    Are you watching the same games as the rest of us?

    He has completed 10+ consecutive passes in two straight games...
    He has evaded the rush all the way accross the field on at least one occasion...

    You are wrong.

    I see his abilities much much differently, but then scouts checking out college talent often disagree on the same individual too. It's hard to evaluate young talent that hasn't developed yet. Time will tell. More young QB's fail than succeed so you and the Flacco detractors have the odds on your side.

    I still say he's going to be a very good NFL QB and I admit that I could be wrong too.
