Joe "fuck-up" Flacco - "Well throwing across my body in the red zone on second down seemed like a good idea at the time.

 

Typical Raven Fan Fickleness.

 

Joe's been set-up for failure as much as he's failed himself. Anyone that doesn't see that is only seeing what they want.

damn right, after 10+ years off god awfull qb play I believe i have a right to be pissed. One bad understandable if the team/qb has earned the right to have a game like that. excuse me for being a little "fickle"

One good thing though, next season we will have a soft schedule so......can anyone say playoffs!!!

 

Again... just lame and also not true.

 

Even with a loss we're #2 in the AFC North... right now that would mean the Dolphins and Broncos as the two insert teams... aside from that, we get all the same as the Bengals and Steelers (AFC South - Colts and co; and NFC South, I think)

No. He was not open. He appeared open, but that is the classic example of you do not throw across the field ... because even a strong throw allows too many routes to undercut by CBs.

 

The second throw was not as much a bad decision as a great play by Hawk.

 

 

Regardless... the Ravens this season are a team of big plays and big failures. The McGahee run on 1st and goal was a great play by Woodson... but it changes our whole scheme. Same thing on the swing to Ray Rice the drive prior that lost 7 yards. We seem to find ways to put ourselves in bad positions.

 

The result? Well, the only plays that have worked for the Ravens this game have been high risk, high reward gambles... pray for the flag or a great catch. If you train your team and your QB to play that way... that's what you'll get.

Alright DC, he wasn't wide open, but he had space on the defender and Joe could have easily lobbed it to the corner of the endzone for a TD or incompletion. And don't even defend the 2nd throw, Hawk was right there, the Pick itself was a great play, but there was no way he was completing that.

I think you pretty much sum up the Ravens season. With that said, I would love to see more playing time from Demetrius, Kelly Washington, and possibly Justin Harper. We need speed and size on the field. What we have now with Clayton and Mason is not working.

No. That's the point. The reason you don't throw all the way across the field is that it's not a matter of "easily lobbing it to the corner." From 10 yards out of the endzone to 10 yards deep in the endzone and all the way across the field... that's a 40-50 yard throw.

 

There's a reason that rule #1 is that when you roll out you never throw back across the field. Literally, it's rule #1 of throwing. Just like in soccer, you never cross in front of your own goal... in football, you never cross the field with a pass.

 

Bad judgment as forced by bad circumstances. Execution was lacking everywhere tonight.
