    We are relying too much on our offense. It is putting them under the microscope when we do not come out on top.

    We our looking BAD against the run. Not enough pressure on the QB either. Merriman clearly isn't healthy.

    We will have our hands full against teams with a good running game. (Miami, Pitt, Tennessee)

    It's won;t be hard for opposing offenses to game plan for us. Run, Run, Run, wait for the defense to make a huge 3rd down penalty.

    That being said the rest of the teams aren't looking to strong where we all thought they would be. We saw some good things today and some obvious problems. Players are stepping up. I saw a lot of fight. Turners move to kick the field goal I did not get. Going into the locker room and asking your players to fight harder after you just went for it on fourth down and did it and then settling for 3 with a down to go? Whatever, We cant let opportunities slip like that. Momentum is everything in these type of games. The center did fine and sproles was great. Loved Turners call to go to Jackson for the 3rd and long to the endzone. It came down to a play. It was very playofflike. Good learning expierience for the freshies

    We better be ready to get hit in the mouth ands hard and we're going to have to be ready, as in we're going to have to stop them from doing it in the first place. It's time to tackle and tackle well. We don't have a stout defensive line so our linebackers have got to be there to stop up gaps and prevent, prevent, prevent the other team from gaining. If that doesn't happen, we'll have to stack the box and leave their passing attack open.

    100% - BE AGGRESSIVE!!!

    I thought we looked better in the 2nd half. I want to see a complete game though.

    Wait...I thought you guys said the Ravens offense stunk and they could only put up points on garbage defenses like the Chiefs??? What gives? IMO the Chiefs played us tougher.

    No wait...tell me about how terrible the Chiefs are again and how a team like the Ravens isn't in the same class as the Chargers. LOL!!! You guys are worse than the Chiefs.

    I'd also add that your running game and offensive line are garbage as well.

    :lol:


    Must be fun trashing our board all by yourself.

    Maybe try the other hand for awhile, just for a change of pace.

    get your mom to wipe up the slobber first.

    Right, because the Ravens really blew us out of the water, right?

    Yeah, giving up 438 yards passing is no big deal.

    They snuck outta SD with a win same as we did last week.

    Seriously, coming in here to rub a close win in our faces is simply stupid. We actually did surprisingly well considering we had a second-year offensive lineman starting his first NFL game at guard and a backup blocker starting at center against a defense that made attacking those positions its base plan for the entire game. They rushed right up the middle, something that the bolts actually managed to adjust to and help limit. I look to that quite optimisitcally.

    As for our defense, we did better than I expected. We did get some pressure and picked up another sack but our line is terrible. I was glad to see Cesaire and Martin around the ball so much but not ok with seeing them there eight yards out.

    And yeah, the Ravens...The defense gave up 436 yards to one player. I don't think I need to say much more. The loss of Ryan is clearly having at least some impact.
