    LOL. Not that I saw. And I saw McPhee get held for sure on one play, or at least he was held enough to warrant a calll with the old refs (and I wasn't really scrutinizing every replay, so I am sure there were more "missed" calls). But I like it better like that. Call fouls that are clearly fouls, not any-little-thing-that-can-be-possibly-rationalized; if in doubt, let it go. As long as the refs are consistent, then there should be no problem officiating games in this manner.

    It's as if Flacco has "it" now when he throws a pass.

    He really wasnt that bad. He sprung a lot of Ray Rice draws and trap plays up the middle. He got pummeled a few times, but if he's our weakest link we're in good shape.

    Flacco has always been a great QB. How many passe were thrown poorly tonight? Still a lot of great passes dropped due to good coverage or drooped balls. The Oline deserves a lot of credit and hopefully will improve even more. Leave Birk alone, he the senior man who calls out what he sees .

    Yeah, or more like he is not afraid of getting picked (or getting yelled at by Cam, etc). He is slinging it, not "playing it safe" like I am sure he was instructed to do in the past. He simply has earned the responsibility for the decision-making, similar to the audibling (and no-huddle), and it shows on the field.

    It wouldn't surprise me if he finishes the season with a few more picks than usual (and a lot more TDs obviously), but then again maybe he won't. And either way, I wouldn't care if he did, if throwing them (taking chances) leads to this kind of offensive output. I always felt that our philosophy over-weighted offensive turnovers (obviously because our defense was the water-carrier for our team up until now). I realize they are painful and can be disasterous and can lead to opponent's points, and I realize we need to win the turnover battle, etc, but at some level you can go too far in trying to avoid making them to the point you hamstring your offense and reduce your chances of winning.

    There were only a few of us that liked the McKinney move out of the lineup, now we see why. Next week will be a test for the tackles.

    Rivers threw something like 20 picks last year and the year before Brees tossed like 68...yet folks clamor around them as elite QB's.

    I agree with you. Sure, it is more of a gamble, but it could also be the catalyst for the best offensive season in Ravens history.

    Like I kept saying...you can get away with average and even below average tackles if your QB is getting the ball out quickly and the coordinator game plans effectively.

    That's what happened tonight. It completely tired their DL out and took away their pass rush (for the most part ).

    Ill eat some crow but i dont think anybody predicted harewood at LG and to play so well. They looked great out there. My opinion doesnt hold water to the ravens FO and coaching staff, i hope people realize that before i even sy it. Although mckinnie looked solid in garbage time and heavy sets... Haha.

    I have to admit I was like "huh" when they announced Harewood was starting. The guy played an excellent game. I thought for the most part with a few blips here and there the line was pretty damn good. Its a really good start for them as a group.

    I will reserve judgment until after a couple more games. They played well tonight, outside of Birk, who is a real problem.
