    3. We are just heartbroken today and are over-reacting

    Here are some stats for you to chew on. Since Billick took over the offense:

    - 8th ranked offense in the league 341 ypg (ahead of Bengals, Pats, Packers)
    - 7th in the league in ppg 24
    - 5th in the league in passing ypg 247
    - 21st in the league in rushing ypg 107
    - 1st in the league in time of possession almost 34 min per game

    Ravens also shattered the franchise record for sacks allowed (17). The previous record was 35. That is McNair's presence in the pocket to minimize negative plays.

    And, as mentioned, he has the confidence of the defense, offensive line and the rest of the team. Most importantly, the chemistry in the locker room is positive and everyone believes in each other. One more year learning the offense will make a big difference. The reason the defense came back this year is because they had confidence in the offense, they fed off the offense and they were rested. McNair had a lot to do with the resurgence.

    Maybe this makes everyone a little less arrogant and a little more hungry. The window of opportunity for this group is closed after 2007 as the old timers will be moving on by 2008.

    McNair will be the QB next year and the Ravens will be competitive if they stay healthy. Very tough schedule though, and they will earn some frequent flyer miles with 3 west coast trips. Our boys will have to earn it next year. Regardless, McNair will be back and will be better than this year.
    I agree cutting him is not what we should do. However reading the posts today you would think he didn't do anything all year. We are hurt and I am also but we need to relax.

    McNair will not be cut. Everyone needs to suck it up and stop whinin about the loss. I'm mad as all hell but sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. If it wasn't for Steve McNair, we wouldn't have been 13-3. He'll be back next year, and the RAVENS are gonna come back with a vengeance. I still believe in Steve.

    We will not cut McNair, period. He brings many more intangibles even if he had a bad game. I thought the whole offensive scheme yesterday was out of last year's play book.

    Look, we had a good year, and both of the bye week teams lost. I hope the Patriots beat the Colts, again.

    Good point Art! As long as Neuheisel would run his system let him strike!! Do you think it would take a "thou salt" from Bisciotti to get Billick to give up on his "system" and let Neuheisel do what he wants?

    Put down the pipe...McNair will NOT be cut. We need him to groom our next QB of the future (not Boller).

    Damned if I know, Star. How much BB leaned on Cavanaugh when he was here is unknown, but two things to remember:

    1. Big Kahuna is watching.
    2. Slick Rick just might be a match for Billick when it comes to domination over what gets called. Neither Cavanaugh or Fassel had a chance in that department.
