This is where we disagree.

I agree that Jacoby made a terribly stupid play.

But I disagree that TJ made a handful of terribly stupid plays. TJ made some bad plays. 'Terribly Stupid' is much worse than 'bad.' TJ's bad plays are the same bad plays that the Raven's defense makes other QB's make. This is the same Raven's defense that made Andy Dalton throw 3 ints, that made Ben Roethlisberger throw 3 ints, that made Tom Brady throw 2 ints. You can't expect a rookie to not make mistakes against that defense.

As I've said before (and over and over again), TJ made some bad plays. But his plays were nowhere near as egregious as Jacoby's. TJ's play is one of the reasons we lost, no one's saying it isn't. The missed FG didn't help. But the most atrocious mistake made was Jacoby's. He made a bonehead play... as you said, a TERRIBLY STUPID play.

The "blame" for our loss shouldn't be placed at any one person's feet. But more of it goes at Jacoby's than anyone else's.

hey rookie, youre gonna have to be perfect today because our idiot wideout is gonna spot the ravens 7 points with a dumb mistake, not only that, hes gonna get blanketed in man by nickels and #2's, hes also gonna lose yards on returns by running backwards. so, no interceptions today against the #3 defense and future hall of famers..

got it..

Good posts premier an PN.

I won't argue this anymore because it's just silly at this point.

Jacoby is gone, Yates is still the back up. The end.

In a nutshell - it all boils down to a Ravens team with lots of playoff experience and an excellent defense against a team with a 3rd string rookie QB and only 1 playoff game experience.

With more playoff experience, the Texans could have overcome the fumble on the 2. Jacoby was not the only reason, but a large contributor to the loss.

He needed to go anyways. He cannot run a route and 90% of the time cannot catch the ball thrown to him. Not just in the playoff game, but most of his career as a Texan.

How many of you did not hold your breath on every punt return he fielded all year?

6 months later and 1246 posts later. It's been real. Now it finally looks like it's turn out the lights.

Saying goodbye to this thread is like saying goodbye to an old friend.

more of the loss goes to Jones? I completly understand how someone who had 67% less turnovers and gave the ravens less points takes most of the blame

No one said Yates had to be perfect. He wasnt even mediocre. He sucked it up. Truth is he very easily could have had 5 ints if the ravens didnt just goof a couple. Yates didnt need to be perfect but giving 3 ints and 10 points to the ravens combined with Jones' fumble and 7 was too much to overcome. I swear too many of you let emotions of Jones' sucking it up for years and Yates lovefest get in the way of what happend. 4 Turnovers is too many to overcome. The majority of the blame hits the texans not a player

I consider it more like finally getting rid of a nasty pest problem or a bad, bad nightmare finally coming to a close.
