    Brady not playing with any for is strange. Probably enraged that we cut AB...resign him ASAP.

    The defense just got obliterated tonight. They faked us out by playing strong for a few consecutive drives before collapsing. Plenty of penalties hurt our cause on both sides of the ball.

    Edelman’s fumble was the turning point. We were driving and seemingly about to take the lead.

    The silver lining is that this loss can be a wake up call. It brings that defense back down to Earth and they certainly won’t be giving themselves nicknames for a while. They needed a reality check that, yes they are good and beat up on some pitiful offenses but they are not historically great. In a way I’m glad they’ve got humbled.

    The other positive to make note of is that I saw progress in the passing game. Aside from that INT they moved the ball through the air and at times on the ground as well. Sanu is looking like a great pickup at the deadline. He was terrific tonight, though it will go largely unheralded in the loss. But we still have a Newhouse and TE problem that are killing us.

    Two weeks to think over this one. The team has some brutal film sessions in store for them.

    Finally, the Ravens are not a team I want to run into in the playoffs. Harbaugh has gone against us many times and had more success than any other coach and Jackson is such an untraditional QB that it can make your head spin. Hopefully some other team beats the snot out of them so we don’t have to play them again.

    You do understand that he's somewhat of a large receiver, and one or two sportswriters have suggested we might possibly use him to replace Gronk? I suppose you think he would have been worse than Watson, who was barely above worthless tonight?

    We need to tighten up our run D badly.

    Our offense was moving the ball but when you get the game close and then cough up the ball like Jules did it will suck the life out of you and that is what happened.

    We will continue to have a pathetic run game until our O line gets better.

    I wish we played mobile qbs as if they couldn't run sometimes. I'm convinced things would have gone better if we treated them no different than our past opponents.

    I'm over it and I still don't fear the Ravens.

    True, even the 2000 Ravens gave up 36 to the Jaguars. More importantly, though, I think it could be long-term beneficial to this defense to be so thoroughly humiliated on national TV. They're not historically great, they're not boogeymen, and they sure as hell are not good enough to stop doing their jobs and expect anything good to happen.

    Makes me wonder if Jackson will last the season the way he runs... The next toughest running qb is Watson... They'll adjust and if we meet again will have a better game plan

    Trollin Volin talked about the spaces in the run D and he was laughed at last week.

    Trollin had it right - even if he's an annoying troll.

    This board:

    First 8 weeks: “This defense is special!”

    They have one bad game: “F**k them, they were never that good anyway!”

    Think the offense as a whole looked good, minus Newhouse of course. Sub him out for Wynn, add Harry, you've got a nice offense IMO. Wish the TEs were better but I'm just missing Gronk still I guess.

    Defense got knocked down a couple pegs (up front anyway), but I'm confident they'll rebound fine. They have the talent. They probably needed to be humbled a little.

    Yeah, but that's majority on Newhouse being an absolute dumpster fire of a tackle, and the next time they take the field Wynn should be out there in his place.

    Are we really going to sit here and say the Ravens aren’t that good? They just kicked our ass after a slew of people were stoned thinking we were going to rout them.

    As complex as football is, the key to success is simple. Win in the trenches. We got bullied in the trenches on both sides of the ball.

    Great post. People trashing Jackson because they are jealous we have Stidham, but he is an amazing dynamic player

    Offense was mediocre at best. Tom looking very un-goat-like

    Yup. Thats a game changing call. People are way to easily overlooking that. That was a scoring play. All scoring plays are reviewed. They didn’t see him being pulled? The broadcast team was doing it for them.

    That screams something. Fixing, influencing etc. Aren’t the Ravens something stupid and 1 at home for SNF?

    The wildcat! The reason we don't see more of this is because QBs aren't meant to get beat up by running

    A game that our offense was actually moving down the field on drives but simply didn't have enough sustained drives - such as the fumble six and interception.

    I think that having the oldest defense in the league showed a bit today. We really needed more speed from the LBs in dealing with Jackson, but more importantly, the short play action passes out to the RBs that Hightower was too slow in getting after. Speed really hurt us today! Second half defense started out well and we did stuff the run quite a few times. However, it's really just a matter of discipline, not having to stay on the field for penalties, paying attention to Jackson at all times, etc.
