He came back last week.  HE was quite vocal then.  Then they lose and the team makes dumb mistakes and he is quite.  How bandwagon of him.

He came back because his family was watching the game together to honor a lost loved one. He came back to here just to stqy in touch with us, his friends. Crav is not a bandwagon fan.

He came running back when they were on a run of wins.  They lose and get knocked out and he is in the wind,.

I pretty much have to agree here. Has Harbaugh reached that 7 year high? Have the players stopped listening to him? I don't know, I really don't. I'm not in that clubhouse. But the team seemed to stop playing after week 14. A dismal showing at home vs. the Colts. Then the Cincy game, again at home was horrendous. I like John Harbaugh, but SteveB. has to be wondering too. The Ravens are expected to come out healthy at the start next year, as expected. I disagree only on one point. I believe that they DO have good players. So, that said, I believe that would be an important factor in the owners decision to bring him back. But, I would bet my house that John has one more year only to turn it around and go deep into the playoffs. Injuries will beat any team.

But it's legit if they truly have injuries, as had this team for quite a few years. Our O-line is disicipated. Our tight ends- gone. DB's lost DE;s gone for the season. In essence, we were playing not our best football players. Instead, the guys behind them on the bench. And I'm not complaining, they almost got us there. But these injured guys were some good football players. You're not going to get a winning team when so many are standing on crutches. So, regardless, it is an excuse. I have no freaki'n idea why we are racking up so many IR's. Just freak accidents perhaps. I don't have the answer to that question either. But I do know this. Get them healthy and keep them that way and we're back in those playoffs again. It's a very simple formula- stay healthy. Guys like Marshall Yanda, Alex Lewis, Jaylen- Hill, Jimmy Smith,, Reggie Porter,,Brent Urban, Bam Bradley, Kenny Dixon, Albert McClellan ,Tavon Young, and Crockett Gilmore to name a few.  That's more than a few good players.

To that end, injuries are a problem for this team, as much or more than all in the NFL. I think that we had the 2nd most on IR.

 

The line play in the second half of games appears to wear down sooner and longer than most teams.

Defensive substitutions are not solving the problem. It is part of what blows a late-game lead.

 

Conditioning is lapse and is part of coaching responsibilities.

 

Noticed that a small bit of conditioning, on-field before games, began half-way through the season.

They need more pre-season conditioning.

Agree with that. Something has to change there. This has to be more than coincidence.

Then maybe the coaching staff needs to work to stop getting them injuries.  Bring in a qualified conditioning coach.

I have heard what Brady does to stay healthy.  He eats the most boring meals and does a ton of flexibility stuff to stay malleable.

I dug a bit more into it...Von Miller hadn't been drafted and Dumervil was out all season.  It wasn't that talented a team.

"We had plenty of talent," Flacco said. "We had a lot of good guys and a lot of guys who fought hard on this team. I'm never going to feel bad about what they're doing upstairs. It's my job as a quarterback to go out there, play the game and get everybody playing well."
