    Mcnair couldn't win in the rain and Flacco can't win on the road...



    ....against quality teams. That is all. I'm not a troll. I'm not on or off the bandwagon. But Jpe Flacco is in his 5th year and he is what he is.... a very good QB at times, who struggles to win on the road against good teams. The Ravens will struggle to win it all with Flacco. Just my .02.

    It wasn't just Joe though. The defense was shit outside of Suggs. The o-line was a nightmare. Cam was Cam. Joe was a major reason why they didn't win but there were a lot of others.

    Furry-
    I understand what you are saying, but I think GOTA has it right - it was a total team "effort" today, including the coaches.

    I agree... And Texan's pass rush is great. Why can't our WR's get separation? Is it play calling? Is it the Texans secondary, or is it our WRs? A little of all of it?

    Flacco has 4 wins on the road in the playoffs against quality teams. He can win against quality teams on the road. He has just been bad this year for some reason.

    The Ravens lost on a bullshit OPI in Philly not to mention the defense couldn't stop the Eagles all day. They won in KC with the entire team playing poorly and then you have today.

    I just don't understand why Joe has to be historically better on the road than some of the all time great QB's.

    Wildcard weekend isn't really playoff teams though. Imagine if the Ravens were good enough to get a first round bye. He'd have a lot less wins.

    You think that reason might be the absence of a Top 5 defense? Just wondering.

    The rub is that he has been BAD in some of those wins.

    And I know the score and stats may not support my view... but I was happy with the way the D played most of the time.

    They started off well, but the Texans almost had 500 yards and the defense gave up 35 points.

    The offense didn't help though with all those 3 and outs.
    Although Walsh's system of offense can compensate for lack of talent; however, defense is a different story. According to Walsh, talent on defense was essential and could not be compensated for. What did Walsh do in 1981? He acquired physical and talented players on defense.

    The stats and points don't support it. Outside of Suggs what was there to like? After today they might be the 32nd ranked defense in the NFL.

    The players don't even like it. Last week Aaron Wilson tweeted a whole bunch of quotes from Ngata who was embarrassed by how poorly the defense played. This week he put up Suggs quotes which pretty bad.

    Here's the one I retweeted

    Aaron Wilson ‏@RavensInsider
    Terrell Suggs: 'There's no sugarcoating, call a spade a spade, they whipped our ass.'
