All our offense needed to do, was get one first down and the games over. We didn't do that because we beat ourselves with 2 false start penalties, and a holding penalty that gave Baltimore extra field position. Our defense broke, was mentally gassed, and got beat.

We had the game in our grasp, we make that ONE first down after the defense's beautifual goaline stand, we aren't talking about Houshmanterrorists TD catch, OR Jeff Reed's 2 missed field goals. That possession on the 2 yard line told the story and we snatched defeat in the jaws of victory. WE HAD THEM.

I blame the offense for not picking up 10 yards, that set the stage.
I think i said that somewhere

Win as a team and lose as a team. You can't put it on any one player.

Charlie Batch had a really bad game from what I saw. He failed to notice wide open receivers several times. The sack on third down adding extra yards to the field goal was huge.

Jeff Reed missed two field goals. I can understand missing one, but there's no excuse for missing two in the same game.

Mike Wallace dropped a pass in the end zone. Granted, it was a difficult grab, but he's a professional WR and should bring it in.

Mendenhall averaged a less-than-stellar 3.2 yards per carry.

Neither Woodley not Harrison had a sack, although Harrison did draw a hold.

Farrior whiffed terribly on McGahee's touchdown.

Anyway, to make a long story short, this loss was a team effort.

If I was voting last night, I'd be saying Reed. But this was a team loss so I voted everybody...

Upon seeing the Patriot suck option, I wanted to write in The Ravens may have won but they still suck...

Everyone gets a share of the blame. The Offense for stinking up the joint. The Defense for poor pass coverage - esp during the last 2 minutes of the game. Jeff Reed for choking. The offensive coaches for terrible play calling - 3rd and 4 and you go for the 40 yard bomb? The defensive coaches for their terrible play calling as well: almost no full-out blitzes against Flacco - too much time to throw. Players were too far off the receivers - gave them tons of space. And the the ultimate booby prize goes to the genius who sent Troy to blitz Flacco instead of defending the secondary with McFadden where the Ravens wound up with the TD - that was truly the stupid play of the day.
