    This is not a knee-jerk reaction.

    Our RT is terrible and we have no replacement for him. When Duane Brown doesn't play, our LT is terrible. Our QB is below average and has no natural ability to make something out of nothing, which is required with poor tackle play. Our pass defense is going to get exposed by good passing teams.

    We'll be lucky if we go .500. We are extremely lucky to be 2-0 and not 0-2 given the way we've played thus far. There is no indication that this team will be getting better as the season progresses, actually quite the contrary as injuries happen.

    Nah. I'm as down on Schaub as anyone, but he's above average and the team is better than 8-8.

    I guess you guys aren't watching the same team I am. This team is not good at all. We can stop the run and we can run the ball. That's all we got. It's not a knee jerk reaction because we are 10 quarters into the season.

    Yeah, because posts declaring the season over when a team is 2-0 15 minutes after a pick six are NEVER knee-jerk reactions.

    Those guys are going to get theirs. Foster, Andre, & OD need to get theirs... Tate, Brown, & Myers need to get a little too.

    Prior to the pick-six, we had about 50 passing yards.

    Challenge that. Ball is moving until he gets out of bounds.

    I definitely think this is pre-mature to declare this team as an 8-8 team already. There are good things we have seen this season like the fact that this team has the ability to fight to come back in games and we now have a #2 WR. AJ is playing great and our RB's are looking pretty good with this competition sort of going on.

    The OP definitely makes some strong points though. To act like nothing he said has any accuracy at all is simply ignoring things because you don't want them to possibly be true. We could have very easily entered this game 0-2. Glad we didn't and we got some hard fought wins, but we've got some problems that we need to fix for sure.

    I will agree that these refs are at best a 3A highschool crew.

    That is a sure thing. Why hasn't he had any targets yet? It's impossible to see the whole field during the broadcast but I don't recall Nuk being targeted yet. Did I miss it? Has he been?

    A *flag happy* bunch they are. Most 1/2 penalties in NFL history. Dayum.

    He had one good catch earlier, but you're right he hasn't been targeted a lot. Not sure why without being able to see the full screen.

    Baltimore isn't even very good. Their passing game isn't much to deal with, yet they've been effective without much of a running game.

    We still have the NFC West, the Pats, the Broncos, and the Colts twice to deal with.

    lol. i was worried that today was going to unfold this way. Hardly anyone was giving Baltimore any respect around here for the Ravens front 7, and the Duane Brown injury was THE WORST timing with this stretch coming up. Now its knee jerk meltdown mode for the next month.

    It's so hard to check out, but damnit I want to.

    At the moment I'm trying to decide if the next two games will be losses or embarrassing losses.
