i don't think the D played bad, i think lebeau just had a bad gameplan. too conservative. they strayed away from whats been successful against flacco , and thats blitz the hell out of him and force turnovers. today we seen a lot of 3 man rushes.

Still, a great 3-1 start to the season. We will go to Baltimore later in the season and get this one back. We are in good shape. This one stinks because we are much better than Baltimore.
I agree. Both offense and defense coaching sucked.

Offense-On 3rd down we should have at least trid for the first down. If they make it, the game is over. If not and they get stopped short and the Ravens score, it might be better to have more time on the clock. TRY. The Ravens would have tried.

Defense-Our pass D sucked all game. People were open all the time. In fact, our pass D sucked before the game ranked at 17th. It was the turnovers helping us and the bend but don't break allowing yards but no points. I knew eventually they would break. They played against a team with a good O-line. Before the game there was a whopping 2/3rds chance of completion throwing a pass against us (very low in ranking). One DB had said Lebeau said the short passes won't beat them...well it did today...especially when you allow 10 yards a clip...boo...no adjustment.

Yeah 3-1 is OK. Glad to have Ben back.

Maybe today YOU weren't watching the game my friend...it was bad. Receivers were open all over the place. Terrible coverage. They have mastered the holes in our zone and we didn't adapt.

Yeah, if it had been a 30 + yards instead of 45 + yards. With the wind, those kicks are tough. I blame the coaching staff for 3 step drops on 3rd down. A run up the middle gives Reed a 30 yard kick.

Anytime you hold the opponents to 17 points you should win. Especially considering they didn't add 7 points till the last 2 minutes.

Bad coaching offensively and Jeff Reed cost us that game. Even after bad penalties we still had the game. All you needed on that last possession was a 1st down. We need a 1st down and our play calling basically said kneel. That's playing not to lose.

In hind sight I thought we were overly aggressive when we shouldn't have been and overly conservative when we shouldn't have been. I won't harp on that too much because ultimately I do think we lost that game because of poor offensively game planning. If Batch was so bad he couldn't run our offense I'd forgive Arians and blame it on Bens suspension. Problem is that wasn't the case. That game was there for the taking. Reed misses 2 tough FG's. IMO you really can't blame him for missing one of those. But he should have made at least one. Add in a piss poor offensive performance and you've earned your self a loss. It sucks. We clearly were the better team IMO. shit coaching IMO cost us the game.

as i said, they were playing too conservative... blame those soft cushions and all day to throw the ball on lebeau. he seldom brought the pressure like he normally does against flacco. you guys act like its the players decision to play 15 yds off the line of scrimage...its not.

@$#^ that! You can't rely on your offense to get a 1st down? If you can't expect a 1st down out of your offense against a VERY over rated Raven's defense then you do not deserve to win.

A first down erases 7 points. We should have won 14-10 if our pathetic offense could get a 1st down. Arians failed With the talent we have offensively we should have scored more then 14 points. Batch is a good #2 QB. He was capable of getting a 1st down. Our OC's @#$Y^ play calling prevented us from winning. Add in 2 missed FG's.....we deserved to lose.
