    I really didn't expect the O to do much..The D looked weak the first 2 drives than played well..I believe the key reason for the lose was Penalty's... Penalty's and more Penalty's..it made me nuts.

    They drove me nuts as well, but Ravens had a tremendous amount of Penalties them self, so personally I don't see that as the factor. I have to say i expected more of our offense than this, especially from our rookie WRs, but i guess that demands that they get a chance instead of freaking ARE and Battle. Sure, ARE had two good catches today, but other than that, he have sucked throughout the season.

    Bottom line, we made it real close against a very tough ratbird's team. What happens when Ben gets back? I like our future.

    Zero 3rd down conversions in the first half, unacceptable.
    Missed open receivers, unacceptable.
    Dropped passes, unacceptable.

    It all just adds up to a performance that should never have happened. We just beat ourselves and let them get too many big plays at the wrong times. Batch didn't lose it himself, the line didn't, the WR's, it was a combined effort from the whole roster but overall I was highly disappointed in the offense with all the chances they had.

    Who are you talking about as the "1 who never panned out"? Which rookie?

    I actually wasn't all that impressed with the Ravens' defense. They almost got beat with our 4th string QB. Fabian Washington did have some really good defensive plays.
