You know what I would have loved to see? I would have greatly enjoyed the sight of our defense all simultaneously lying down and allowing Baltimore to score. Maybe then it'd become apparent to our offensive unit that they need to pull their own weight!

Those of you who blame our defense for giving up 92 yards in that final drive are ignorant, and that's my honest opinion. Our offense is the reason we lost this game. A first down on offense prevents all four first down's put up by the Ravens in the final drive from happening.

Would you trade four opposing first downs, for a game clinching first down by the good guys?
Nope. Putting the blame solely on one side or the other is ignorant.

Yes, I realize that in my posts I've put a better part of the blame on the defense...but that was more from being pissed off about all the 3rd downs and the final drive. The offense is to blame as well, or course, they could have done things better too. But they weren't playing the crappy Pats D...they were playing the best D in the league (in nearly all aspects). Our defense just had to stop the floundering and inconsistent Ravens offense. That's where my thoughts lie right now.

It's like a crutch to just blame the offense for losses right now though. And it's only hip to blame the D if you're only blaming Gay. They had a bad game (both offense and defense). Admit it and deal with it.

yeah usually Im pissed too about our O sucking, but you don't give up 92 yard drives like that to a team with 1 TO that didn't even need to be used

The D allowed 14-21 third down conversions. Not acceptable.

This loss is on the whole team. Take your "D" blinders off and realize that they share the blame too. THEY COULD'T STOP ANYONE ON THIRD DOWN!!! That's part of the reason they lost. Quit trying to spin it like the D can't do any wrong. This game was WON with 2 minutes left to go, and the D shit the bed. Period.
No point in even arguing this. The loss hurts the entire team, not just one unit. But i'll tell you right now. Our offense shit the bed, and our defense couldn't clean it up.

Grats on the win...in the end we're all just fans, and this is meant to be entertainment. I hope we get this level of entertainment out of these two teams for years and years to come.

Thanks for joining, and hope to see ya around.

i still think we go 12-4 and the ravens go 11-5.

once again, the ravens think they won the superbowl (everybody saw the gatorade shower).

once again, they will fail to show up and shit the bed.

im not even sure they make the playoffs. the bungles own their ass.

You seriously think our defense was good tonight? How many passes did Flaaco complete on 3rd down tonight? It was pathetic. We made the RAvens looking the Pats out there tonight.


The offense did more than enough in the 4th quarter to win the game. Again the defense blew a late lead.

I didn't see the shower, just saw one other poster mention it. I left the room out of frustration after the TD.

That may be something that haunts them though. They don't seem to know how to win with class (Housh wiping his cleats with the TT at Heinz riled up the Steelers before too).

They'll make the playoffs for sure though...and I'd love it if we could still get the division, but most of my cup is half empty right now (not enough Drambuie )...I see us getting the WC spot, which is fine with me. If not...that'll be ok too. Nobody died after the '09 season.
