He made some really tight throws, I didn't think the NE coverage was bad. But, #31 vs top ten definitely had a hand in making him look better. Either way he earned a deal today outplaying Brady. Evans on the other hand is either getting a paycut or just plain cut. Can't relax like that halfway through a catch with a sb on the line.

I actually think Flacco is progressing somewhat. I won't call him a top QB but he's all right. The real key though for the Ravens will be extending Rice. The guy if you ask me is the most talented piece on that offense and its key.

Takes a real fanatic to call him 'top'. I would say he is 12-15 in the league. TE drops killing his numbers though. And Lee ****ing Evans. Damn. . .

Do you, as a fan, feel confident having him as a quarterback?

I'd agree with that assessment. He's 10-15 IMO. He was good against a bad D today. He was bad against a good D last week. For most of this season, he's been up and down, but mostly a little better than average.

I... am...but would prefer to reserve judgment until I see him with a new OC. No way do we resign cc now that his contract is up. Maybe we can getBA out of retirement

Top 12-15 sounds right to me. He's not a bad QB and I did think he improved this year in his clutchness i.e. the drive against the Steelers (pains me to say that but I try to be fair) and that was a good 2 minute drill he had tonight too but Evans and Cundiff hurt the team. I do feel Rice is the Ravens key on offense. I'm amazed he fell to the second round. Rather would have him than Mendenhall objectively speaking.

I don't think I'll be able to post anything that doesn't end with Lee ****ing Evans until we are back in the thick of next season. FWIW I would take any of your receiving core over Lee ****ing Evans who didn't do a damn thing all season but eat cap and drop balls. If that is Mike Wallace the Ravens are going to Indy.

Just hope we can repeat and give Ray one more chance.

Think that is it for me ya'll, but if you want to stir the pot in the offseason just bash the Ravens. I'll be around

Oh yea Lee ****ing Evans. . .

Yeah, unlike fair-weather Baltimoron fans, we stick by our team and don't throw them under the bus because we're butt-hurt about a loss.

It's either that, or your fans and your whiny bitchass coach making up any excuse in the book for why they lost except for taking it like men and admitting a better team beat them or that they just didn't play well enough to get the job done.

Suck it up, buttercup. More failure is bound to be headed your way next season.

Yeesh! You'd think they would be used to it by now and have gotten a support group or something together to hug each other through it.
