Default 3-1 isn't bad guys

Despite the horrible performance today, we're tied for 1st in our division going into the bye, and Ben is coming back.

We played like shit today and still almost beat a good team. Ravens played tough but I'm convinced they aren't the better team, we will be back.

with that said, i have no freakin idea why lebeau blitzed #43 in that situation. we knew the ravens HAD to take shots at the end zone, and you take your best player in the secondary out of the play? good job dick. I support you but man, what a stupid call

I'd have taken 3-1 at the bye week before the season started - and always thought this would be the toughest game of the first 4, and despite that, we were only a few stupid penalties from winning this one too.

The manner of the loss today sticks in the throat because we should have gone in 4-0, but we're still well placed when Ben comes back in. We have to look better on O with him in there - and we'll win games like this once he's back.

Yes, this is true. Too bad we're not 4-0. You hate to give up games where you should have won. You don't want to lose at home. Games like this can come back to haunt you at the end of the season for playoff qualification and rank.

At least Le Beau is willing to call a blitz at the end of the game to win. Arians did not have the courage to call a pass play, like a slant to get a first down and close the game out.

I am very happy with 3-1. We are in a good position going into the bye.

I am not happy with how we lost the game today though. Penalties, points left off the board, and a 40 second touchdown drive

It sucked to lose today, but I'm ecstatic with being 3-1 without #7. Things should only get significantly better from here. If nothing else thanks to SCMom we don't have to read anymore of whatdoiknow's inane posts. See there's a silver lining to todays game after all.

im all for blitzing but you don't blitz troy in that situation, especially when we already have harrison, woodley, and timmons. if they want a speed rush send gay, but troy? you keep your best player in the secondary defending the pass imo

I'm pissed too, but this is absolutely correct.

Can't dwell on this game really anymore (at least I can't), and I hope the team doesn't either too much. Just fix the mistakes and get Ben ready to go and all will be good.

On a side note, I know not everyone is a hockey fan...but Wednesday can't come soon enough now! (Pens home opener).

That'll take some of the edge off for sure for me.
