A defensive line that can't stop a run, an offensive line that can't block, oh and an I told you so, team will cue on the gimmick qb and cost this team....

Good night. Maybe you can stay up when they are better?



Nope, sleep is more important to me, I get up early.

Papa- you said, "let's wait to next week". Thanks for knocking me back into reality. I guess I needed that wake up call.

My biggest worry now is C.J.  Looks like this could be a serious knee injury. ACL? Man I hope not.

When an NFL season is over, there is a game or a stretch of them that usually defines it. The Ravens are about to enter one of those periods.

The defense hasn't been perfect or great so the offense will get a pass. Meanwhile Joe can't see a wide open target on 4th and 2.

Tough game. Marvin just seems to have our number and Joe has troubles with Cincys D. Good news; at least Mosleys injury is not a season ending one.

Where was Joe looking? Was he running for his life, AGAIN?

This offensive line might be worse than ever. They can't run block, they can't pass block; NONE OF THEM.

Stanley gets pushed back into Joe on almost every pass play. Yanda is not as strong as he was, he too gets no push. Don't get me started on Lewis and Skurah, both can barely push a baby carriage. Hurst is a back up at best, and his replacement is even worse.

No push, no consistent running lanes, Joe has little to no time in the pocket to go through his reads.

I like Boyle as a player, but he now has 3 false start penalties in 2 games. Sit him down, this offense can't afford penal9.

Nope, plenty of time. It looked like he just looked at the rb, no where else. He was bad last night. Three line is not great, the receivers are retreads, but he's a lower tier starter now who is getting worse.

Well I'll take your word for it. All I saw of the game was the first quarter, a bit of the 2nd and then the high lights this morning.

But looking at the stats, less than 4 yards per carry for all the backs, more stupid trick plays, penalties, another stupid move by Harbs going for 2. Same ole same ole....

I will give the defense credit, holding the Bengals to two field goals in the 2nd half and even keeping Green in check, yards wise. The 3 scores was just horrible coverage, or terrible tackling.

I imagine the fans are calling for the rook already.....

If you just look at the stats Joe had a good night. He didn't.

The run was pretty much abandoned after falling behind.

I think using Jackson like that is stupid too, all it does is disrupt the flow.

I do not see how going for two when it would get you within a fg is stupid. Maybe not everyone would do it, but I see the logic.

Marvin knows Joe has never learned how to handle the cover 2.  Until you learn to beat it it will keep coming.  Joe becomes inpatient and thows intothe teeth of the D getting picks.

I kept saying Yanda was not the same guy he was.  I think this is yr 12.  He has had two major injuries the last couple seasons.  I have worried about the OL since last yr.

Ozzie keeps getting used up WRs and it shows in the offense.


So onto some of the things I really liked.  

Joe actually had some amazing throws.  Towards the end of the third on 2 different plays the pocket had completely crumbled.  The D was all around him and he was actually in the hands of some and Joe delivered strikes.  The problem was about a min later Joe threw another pick and I don't care about his arm being hit.  It was a foolish throw.  Also another play Joe threw into triple coverage but the ball fell into Brown's hands so he had some luck there.  

Collins is a straight monster.  He turns some crap into gold many times.  He is the feature.  Dixon being out is not big deal.  Collins needs more touches.

Buck Allen is solid and really good in the pass game.

The Ravens have a plethera of really good TEs.  When Williams goes down with his requisite injury it should be no big deal.  


Now onto the debacle issues.

The middle of the D is horrible.  If they had stayed with the TE up the seem more the game would have been a disaster.  Weddle is just a warm body now.  Jefferson I am not sure has a pulse.  The DL looked pedestrian.  Suggs should have retired.  The CBs did poorly.

Yes the OL has huge issues.  Brown needs to learn to catch with his hands and not his body.

Back on Joe real fast.  In the 2nd quarter I think there was a crossing pattern I think for Crabtree.  Joe again was not accurate on that route.  Instead of his normal throwing behind the reciveer he threw way to far in front.  He only got a hand on it and it batted up in the air.  Luckily the DB could not quite get to it and it fell incomplete.  The receiver is just a few yds away from you it is not hard to throw it to your guy and not make him have to shine a turd.

Nice post Papa, sincerely.  

 

They are who we thought they were?  I guess I was encouraged that they played so well in the rain last week.

 

Also, did they have practices or walk throughs?  What is a walk through?

 

Short week and the D played the whole game, right?  

Let's see what happens week 3.  I only saw the last quarter and was following on twitter for the rest of it.  Weird stuff indeed...

It is worth mentioning that the away team on Thursday Night games lose far more than they win and are generally flat....

Would the D have done as poorly WITH Mosley in?  Seems they adjusted well in the second half.

I think that adjustment was more Mixon.  It started late in the first half when he left.

It was pretty bad and downright ugly some of the time. I have to say I was shocked to see Stanley getting pushed around by a rookie. The protection for Joe was terrible and so was his throwing. The pass to Brown for a TD was lucky.

 

If Joe gets good protection, he'll pick a defense apart, but pressure him and he falls apart.

 

I give the defense a pass figuring losing their leader Mosley early on was a big  shock to their psyche. They recovered for the most part in the second half.

 

I'm not expecting much better this season. Maybe they can bounce back against Pittsburgh next week since their pride has now been wounded.

This Baltimore team [is] devoid of stars but loaded with solid contributors up and down the lineup

I doubt it, but then I think he is well over rated. The second half showed that they did not miss him and that the team should not over pay him...
