Default Re: Ravens "D" can't stop Taiwan Jones

For the record, and this probably isn't apparent for people who live outside of Baltimore or are not fans, we ran the fake field goal and "ran up the score" because fans are very critical of the Raven's ability to finish a game.

According to local talk personalities whenever we lose a close game it is because we took our foot off the gas or did not step on our opponents neck and let them hang around after going up by 10-13 points. I think the idea here was to score as many points as possible until the raiders D stopped us, which they never did. Had your team done it I think you would feel the same way Raven's fans feel this week, about 50/50 on the subject.

Also, keep in mind we pulled our starters for the entire 4th quarter and didn't play our most prolific defensive player at all. I thought we gave them a clean, fair game. In your opinions, do you think we should have just taken knees starting with 10 minutes left in the third quarter?
