you're not wrong.

The first thing that needs fixed is that these guys need a BIG boot in their ass before gametime and need to look like they WANT to be on the field instead of looking like they're browsing caskets in the local morgue.
Is no one in the organization providing leadership and motivation??? I hate the Ravens, but there's no one here who can tell me that they look like they're even in the same league as the Ravens are when it comes to wanting to be on the field and making plays. Those guys are high-fiving, yelling at each other, pumping fists......are we? Hell no, we're just standing around, shooting the s**t.

I have no idea what LeBeau is doing with these guys at this point. Very little is transferring to the field.

I don't think Dick is to blame here. His play calling has always been pretty much the same. Its the personnel that deserve the blame this game. If Ben could score 4 TDs every game our previous year defenses would have destroyed the opposing O. Just my 2 cents.

The defense is no doubt the unit to blame. I'm not saying Dick should be in the hot seat, but it IS his unit that shit the bed.

I won't even feel better even after a (hopefully) W at home. This team hasn't proven it can win on the road in a while.

Me! What do I win?

We bet the farm on offensive talent and then let Arians refuse to do anything with them for five years. We cut some quite suitable defensive players this offseason to make room for a high power offense that is still learning to play football after five years of destructive coaching. It's not time to demand the head of the once best defensive coordinator in the NFL just yet. Even the best of them get beat sometimes, and Lebeau is no exception, and unlike Arians has had, and now Haley, he no longer has the best talent level to work with.

I'd pay Wallace $100M tomorrow, because this team has to score 40pts a game if we want to have a chance to win with LeBeau's defense

What position are willing to downgrade further to make cap room for a formerly fast receiver who isn't outrunning anyone now? I have to give him credit he is still a pretty good receiver and drawing double coverage now that he can't just out sprint the corners any more, but I wouldn't sell the rest of the team to keep him. Sorry, but that's just the reality of the NFL. It's not really a bad thing.

for starters I'd cut every CB not named Ike....immediately


Lebeau's soft slow and sloppy "scheme" was cut to ribbons...I want to see heads roll!


Wallace was making catches over the middle and caught everything Ben threw him - get off his ass - he did his job

this defense is beyond horrible - we NEED to score40 pts a game - they can't tackle, stop the run, or the pass


cut that worhless tub of lard Ziggy too, I'be seen enough of that fat slob and his bear dancing routine, a 1 yd push into the backfield would be his first
