    Our Last Actual Playoff Victory

    Get it together Coach Harbaugh. It's been five years now. You've had home games, you've had a bye, you've had a MVP. No more excuses. Now, I'll have to watch highlights like this on loop to try and cheer the fan in me up.

    16', we blew it late in the season against the Steelers
    17', we blew it late in the season against the Steelers AND the Bengals
    18', we got embarrassed in the playoffs
    19', we got our first #1 seed in team history, only to be embarrassed again

    There's only one common denominator at this point.

    The Ravens had never been a #1 seed. They had a bye in 2006, but the 14-2 Chargers were the #1 seed.

    Thank you for the correction. That was the season I was thinking about. I will make the edit.

    That's four consecutive years of, not just ends to the season, but embarrassing, agonizing ends to the season.

    Can you really blame 16 and 17 on coaches? Those were player failures.

    2019 it was not over before the end of the 3rd.

    You don't think the game is over at 28-6 with 04:16 left in Q3?

    No. We scored 21 unanswered on the bungles just this season simply by playing our game and not even being in hurry up mode.

    Heres how:

    Lamar to boyle 10 yard pass
    Ingram 7 yard run
    Lamar 47 yard TD run

    7

    Lamar to Hollywood for 7 yards
    Lamar to Andrews for 2 yards
    Lamar to Hollywood for 20 yards TD

    14

    Finley then sacked by Ricard and recovered by bowser for a TD

    21

    All in the third.

    We've been playing like this all year with other guys making plays and that's how we've won. Really, that's how anybody wins. We have a banged up ingram, go down by 14 early and decide Lamar has to do it all himself. Forget giving Gus carries. We had most of the game to go back to our brotherly identity if you will and it didn't happen on offense or on defense. It seemed like we chose not to trust certain players and lost trust in others early on.

    Yeah, we scored 14 on the Brown in like 1:21. Anything can happen. It just didn't this time.

    Guys were too desperate and overcommitted on a lot of plays. Just play disciplined football.
