I hear they have that special Pittsburgh style food/menu at red eyes so the cooks know who's plates to spit it before serving it. Lol

I found the Ravens Offense to be a mixed bag.

Flacco is playing much better in that sugar huddle of theirs, but disappointingly, the Ravens could only muster field goals. Something isn't right here. If Flacco is supposedly taken the next step, those 3's turn into 6's. The most defense I've seen of Joe is that he's "almost" or "close", but there is no "close", you either make the throw or you don't.

"Mixed bag" is a good description of Flacco. One week you think he's finally taken that next step into being a top 10 QB, and the next week he shits the bed and makes Colt McCoy look good. Unfortunately last year the Steelers never got him on that "next week."

They're no guarantee they'll get him when he's on this year, either. You never know with Joe. You never know with the Ravens period.

Dropped passes ruined the offense, not hit or miss throwing.

You know it's funny, before last year's AFCCG Flacco was mostly a non-factor for the Ravens in the playoffs. He didn't choke and wasn't a turnover machine, but he never stood out, never put the team on his shoulders. That AFCCG was probably his best playoff performance and a dropped pass ruined it for him.

Ray-Ray seems to have signed on with the Ravens no-huddle or "sugar huddle" offense. I imagine that could change if we see more of those dropped passes as it would put a tired defense back on the field with little time taken off the clock. Last year after they lost in Jacksonville T-Sizzle and Ray-Ray voiced their displeasure about Rice not getting more touches.

There is no corner for Flacco to turn. He peaked several years ago. He's simply never going to be "elite". Their defense is going to be considerably weaker this year, so we should get a true picture of just how lame he is.

It's easy to pin all of the blame on Lee Evans for dropping that pass, but what about Flacco's terrible INT and failing on 4th down earlier in the 4th quarter or his inability to put the Patriots away with the Ravens Defense shutting down Brady.

Flacco was facing a really subpar Defense in New England, and he could only muster 20 points. In the biggest game, winning the turnover battle, only 20 points against one of the league's worst Defenses. That's why I'm not so quick to pat Flacco on the back for that AFCC game. It's the first playoff where he didn't completely blow ass, but he still wasn't that great. Oh BTW, Ray Rice was also rendered a non-factor. Coincidence?
