    Nobody.

    I want everyone to sit back and look at the big picture before we beat ourselves up and wish what could of been and what could have.

    1. We Lost our Best Defensive Player relatively early in the year.

    2. We Limped into the Play Offs with 3rd string QB

    3. The Defense we just played has made Hall of Fame QB's have a bad Day.

    4. Inexperience.

    5. Vonta Leach and Bernard Pollard were not factors.
    With all of that being said Im prod of our Franchise bc we have set some milestones and standards as a Franchise.

    Whats Next?

    Kubiak is Our Coach, Like it or not.

    We Get a Legitimate 2nd WR either through the Draft or Next Years Free Agency.

    I Love our Defense, I really really really Love our Defense.

    Lock up Arian Foster.

    Andre has maybe 4 years of Productivety Left.

    Extremely Cliche, But next year its Super Bowl or bust.

    EDIT:

    Ps. If I had to choose someone, Jacoby I guess

    Kareem Jackson, Jacoby Jones, and TJ being inexperienced...

    I hope to only see one out of three of those players next year

    Actually, Leach blew up Ryans/other LB on almost every running play. Vickers whiffed a few blocks. But I am still proud of this team.

    +1.

    And the Ravens. Force turnovers, don't turn it over yourself, and commit zero penalties is a good formula for winning.

    We got our a$$es handed to us in this game. Turnovers were the difference.

    Kubiak got really shook at the end.
    Some horrible decisions, putting the game in Yates hands, letting him decide on whether to chunk a deep one to Andre there. That play should not have ever been called.
    Then he really just looked completely unprepared on the last drive there. Why not run Arian to get a first down on 2nd and two, then clock it real quick. Then on 4th, you HAVE to get a first and clock it, yet he chunks a Hail Mary with over 20 seconds on the clock.
    Kubiak just got shook.

    Yup FTW!

    Can't turn the ball over 4 times and expect to beat a team like B-More

    I agree.

    You just knew when JJ screwed up that punt, and gave them the ball on the 3......... Bad feelings from that point on.....

    Normally I'd go with "long string of excuses" but I can't deny that they're all pretty much legitimate. We have things to fix and a few players to upgrade but we've crossed some sort of line here this year. We've turned a corner. We're good. I don't give a damn what anyone anywhere thinks. The Houston Texans are good.

    Only took ten years.

    Turnovers, turnovers, turnovers. The obvious one is the one Jones committed, but that first interception Yates threw gave the Ravens fantastic field position. Seven-teen points off turnovers is the only thing I blame for this loss. Without the turnovers this is a completely different game

    That's nuts. It's on Kubiak/Yates. The kid was so rattled he could do almost nothing. With even a half-a55 passing game we'd have taken this going away. Should have replaced Yates at half.

    PLAYCALLING! Why go for the td with 145 on the clock? After 2 nice pass plays they should have given it to Foster, he was gashing them in the 4th.
