Derrick Mason: “We look like the Bad News Bears at times”

D. Mason

Losing a heartbreaking game like Baltimore did on Sunday changes everything about the post-game discussion.

If Ravens safety Dawan Landry tackled Steelers running back Isaac Redman near the goal line, perhaps we’re talking about the Ravens offense “doing what it takes” to win.  Instead, we have receiver Derrick Mason searching for words to describe the so-so Baltimore offensive attack.

“I might get crucified for this one, but with all these people we’ve got on offense?” Mason said via the Baltimore Sun. “We’re not a good offense at times. Just call it how you see it. Call a spade a spade. If we were a good offense, we’d move the ball up and down the field.

“Especially with the people we have and the quarterback and the personnel we have. But we’re just not a good offense at times. . . . We look like the Bad News Bears at times. And I’m a part of it.”

The Ravens are more balanced than usual this year, but they didn’t take advantage of a vintage performance from their defense on Sunday night.  Baltimore is now 14th in points on the year, and 17th in yards.  They are 31st in the league in yards-per-carry.

Mason was speaking with great emotion, and he was mostly right.  We give him credit for talking when guys like  Ray Lewis left the locker room before the media showed up.  This loss left a mark on the Ravens veterans.

“You wonder why you come back and play after stuff like this,” Mason said.  “Pittsburgh is a good team, but there is honestly no way we should have lost this game. This makes me wonder personally why I even came back. It hurts worse than any other game.”

    “Derrick Mason: “We’re just not a good offense at times””

    Yeah, like any time you face the STEELER D!!! Let’s give a little credit where credit is due, Derrick. You DID see the 4th quarter didn’t you?!?

  2. richm2256 says: Dec 6, 2010 9:56 AM

    He’s right …… I watched that game start to finish, and that Ravens defense beat the snots out of the Steelers offense, time and time again only to see Joe Flacco & Company go flat when it truly counted.

  3. mrone50 says: Dec 6, 2010 9:57 AM

    Agreed Mr. The offensive play calling gets a little wimpy when the Ravens go up by 7 points. I hope this is the last game that I have to watch CAM CAM go all “what does this play do?” when we get a slight lead.

  4. j0esixpack says: Dec 6, 2010 9:57 AM

    In this politically correct world, you can be sure that Mason will indeed be crucified for calling a spade a spade.

  5. herokravon says: Dec 6, 2010 9:59 AM

    That loss leaves a scar and Houston might beat em next week.

    Seems like Flacco shows no passion on the field.

  6. steelersmichele says: Dec 6, 2010 10:02 AM

    Mason should take a deep breath and realize when these two teams play, it’s all defense. If he’s expecting a blowout, he’s sadly mistaken. Offense doesn’t matter when our teams play.

    As for the so-called leader on the team, Ray Lewis, this isn’t the first time where I’ve read he’s avoided the media after a loss. For a man who preaches accountability, you’d think he’d take his own advice and be the leader he claims to be when the time calls for it. Even Flacco spoke to the press afterwards, and it was him losing the ball that was the deciding factor in the game.

    Ray Lewis–the man is all talk except when his team loses.

  7. steelbydesign says: Dec 6, 2010 10:05 AM

    Wait wait wait, Ray Lewis left before the media showed up? You mean mister trash talk, dancing, phil collins listening ray lewis? Had nothing to say?

    Is this the same Ravens team who specifically asked the NFL “please don’t make us play in Pittsburgh in primetime anymore”.

    The Ravens will get crushed in the wildcard round.

  11. ravensrule says: Dec 6, 2010 10:13 AM

    It does hurt,,,hurts bad. They / Joe, will get better though. In this rivalry the team w/ the better QB wins….Flacco is better than Charlie Batch, he’s not better than Ben. Probably never will be……eating crow

  12. tombstone7 says: Dec 6, 2010 10:14 AM

    Men who are humbled by losses will live to play another day and go from good to great! Hang in there Derrick! You came back to play the game you love and that’s the truth, Ruth!

  13. bravin4evr says: Dec 6, 2010 10:14 AM

    Mason is correct! The play calling is a big problem though. The offense can’t get going with the terrible play calling! They get a small lead and Cameron puts the offense on the shelf, so they do not get into a groove!

  14. ravensrule says: Dec 6, 2010 10:15 AM

    Put another way…
    Sort of like watching the Steelers defense beat the snot out of the Ravens offense, time and time again only to see Ben & Company step up when it truly counted.”

    Go ahead, you can admit it.

    The Ravens picked up Bouldin, Housh, and Stallworth in the offseason and still cant win the division??

    Let the excuses roll in.

  18. melikefootball says: Dec 6, 2010 10:30 AM

    Watching Baltimore four times this year, the offense looks as it has for quite a few years. They have players but they don’t seem to get scores. When Bolin came I thought look out now. Last night was another game where they could have put Pittsburgh awy after being up 7. They move down the field and stall time after time. Pittsburgh makes a big play and the game has changed. Mason sees it as it is.

  19. amanistumor says: Dec 6, 2010 10:38 AM

    Wacko Flacco is a skittish QB. Somehow the Raven’s fans and local media think he’s progressing to be an elite QB, but he’s not. He’s your problem, second finger I’d point towards the offensive play caller (Cameron).

  20. TheDPR says: Dec 6, 2010 10:41 AM

    You can blame Cameron if you like (after all, he runs the offense like it’s preseason) but the game came down to Joe Flacco throwing a 3 yard pass into the dirt for no apparent reason.

    They get that first down and they either keep moving forward for the go-ahead score, or at worst get into a makeable FG situation.

    That pass was AWFUL and at the worst possible time.

    But yeah, Cameron sucks, too.

  22. tk1966 says: Dec 6, 2010 10:49 AM

    Blame your own team for the loss. Better yet, blame the refs (we all know how they want the Steelers to win). Just don’t give the Steelers defense any credit for stopping your team, cold. If it wasn’t for two long passes, the Steelers held your team to 138 yards total. So, which is it? Do you really suck that bad? Or is the Steelers defense that good?

    Lets go ask the mouth with the High School face paint what his opinion is. What? He slipped out, embarrassed? Wuss.

  23. somesome says: Dec 6, 2010 10:53 AM

    As for anybody trashing Ray Lewis, who had a great game, who has a ten time netter production than anyone playery on the Steelers D just has no credibility because of lack of real football knowledge.

    So you justify the pouting of one Mr. Harrsion and find it questionable that a player who played his heart out and get let down by the offense in the final 5 minutes is not in the mood to talk to the media because he may say something bad about the offensive side of the ball????

    You guys are just tools. 13 tackles TWELVE SOLO and a FF.

    You know you were one FF away from being the losers last night and you all would be crying about Arian’s terrible game calling just like Cams.

    As for Flacco. He may not show the demeanor people want to see in a QB, like Ben. But he played good last night, had two completed passes over 60+ yards, he actually had TD pass. He should have changed the play and second down, I don’t know if he can or not.

  24. somesome says: Dec 6, 2010 10:57 AM

    Sorry one missed play by Flacco is the reason the Ravens lost but not using Boldin who was unstoppable in the THIRD and most of the FOURTH quarter was. Why go on 4th and two at all that is at least as questionable at that point as to saying Flacco missed a pass under preassure across his body. I did not like it but one play does not make the game. Where were the dump offs against the Blitzes??? I don’t even recall the dump offs to Rice.

  25. herokravon says: Dec 6, 2010 11:13 AM

    Bottom line Ravens. To get where you want to be, you will have to win on the road.

    Ray Ray left early because he was late for another murder.

  28. vernon427 says: Dec 6, 2010 11:34 AM

    In all truth, Derrick Mason is correct in all he said about the team. The OFFENCE did play a flat game. Flacco should have made the 3 yard pass. But the Ravens are a better team than they have showed all year. When Flacco was I believe on the 30 yard line and was winding up to throw down field was a bad call with only 3.50 minutes left in the game with the Ravens a head. Just an example of bad play calling by Cam Cam all year. I doubt that the Ravens win the Saints, or the Texans and they could loose to Cleveland and the Bengals. A game like the lost to the Steelers is a big let down. The Steeler fans can brag but in truth, they were lucky,” not good.” In the play-off, the Steelers will not go deep. The winner of tonight’s game will be the one who will go to the SB game. My guess will be the JETS. The Ravens in the draft should draft a MLB, CB, outside rusher, OT and big strong running back.

  29. herokravon says: Dec 6, 2010 11:57 AM

    What is the Ravens signature win this year?

    Opening night @ Jets 10-9? When they won @ Pittsburgh you would have thought they just on the AFC title.

    If you ask me the Ravens are failures this year. Pats, Falcons, and now the Steelers got em.

    Get real.

  30. Deb says: Dec 6, 2010 12:00 PM

    ROFL @ Richm2256. Omigosh, I’ve never seen a guy sooo consumed by obsession and hatred for a team. It rises to the level of needing psychiatric intervention. You could turn this into a Steven Wright act and hit the college circuit.

    Despite having two o-line starters on IR, despite losing the punter to a torn ACL, despite having our QB’s nose broken in the first quarter and our go-to tight end concussed–both by illegal hits that weren’t flagged–despite playing on the road against a doggedly determined defense and a QB that’s been having a career year … we hung in, kept the game close, and our defense made the Big Play when it was needed THEN hung in and kept their offense from coming back.

    The Ravens didn’t lose the game, the Steelers won it. But I do appreciate Derrick Mason being a man. When you spend a lot of time on PFT … you see so few of them.

    Here’s what cracks me up … today Baltimore fans are killing Cameron on the talk shows for letting Falcco drop back with a four-point lead and like 4-5 minutes to play. But the first time the steelers played the Ravens, the Steelers didn’t throw the ball with two minutes left and a four-point lead and instead ran dive-dive-dive and punted … and lost the game.

    I guess it’s a matter of damned if you do and damned if you don’t. The worst job to have in the NFL must be offensive coordinator.

  35. steelersmichele says: Dec 6, 2010 12:31 PM

    somesome,

    Baltimore is the “city that reads.” and it’s a shame you don’t know how to read.

    No one is bashing Ray Lewis for his play on the field–we are all bashing him for being a hypocrite. He always runs him mouth when he wins, but when his team loses, he’s no where to be found. For someone who is the self-proclaimed leader of the team, his failure to talk to the press after a loss (and this isn’t the first time) shows he is a coward.

    “You know you were one FF away from being the losers last night and you all would be crying about Arian’s terrible game calling just like Cams.”

    Yeah, we almost lost last night, but WE DIDN’T.

    As for Arians, we’re always crying about his HORRIBLE play calling even in a win. Most fans hate the Run-Run-Pass predictable play calling.

    As for Flacco, no one is saying he’s not playing well (except some Ravens fans).

    Why are you making up Steelers fans comments? Most fans are giving the Ravens props and you seen to be so angry at the loss that you can’t read straight.

  36. steelerdynasty2010 says: Dec 6, 2010 12:33 PM

    i am not going to sit here and bash Ray Ray for ducking out on the media. i think he’s given his share of post-game soundbites and has EARNED the right to skip one if he’s not feeling up to it. getting baited into answering loaded questions cannot be a pleasurable experience….especially after a loss like that one. he doesnt OWE us anything except his full effort and there’s no disputing that you get that from him on EVERY PLAY. was his post-game interview gonna put up more points on the scoreboard and affect the outcome? no! he’s an all-pro and first ballot HOFer…PERIOD…
    I think what needs to be said is that Flacco isnt as far along as everyone wants to pretend he is. His deep balls look like punts (they go straight up and fall straight down and i cannot figure out how he has not been picked of 100 times by now) and he’s wildly inconsistent. Some of his inconsistency i believe is at the feet of his OC (who like arians calls up very good plays SOMETIMES, but lacks the overall gameplanning prowess to be successful week in and week out, let alone be dominant), but he needs to own some of it too. he disappears far too often in games.
    i will say this about him though, he is not often the reason they lose. he generally keeps them in games because he isnt a turnover machine and is at least able to change field position most of the time the offense has the ball, but he doesnt always put up lots of points. Its usually several poorly executed poor playcalls that end up being the difference in the games they lose (or some kind of iffy penalty against the D that forces them to lose composure) The knock(s) on him are some of the same ones we hear about Ben…”its the defense that makes him what he is”, “he’s overrated”, blah blah blah…the same could be said of just about every qb. its a TEAM effort and ALL sides influence the performance of the others.
    Good game! screw the flags and the fines, JUST LET THEM PLAY. if you are so repulsed, watch something else.

  37. myspaceyourface says: Dec 6, 2010 12:33 PM

    Flacco is barely average playing the QB position.

    If they officials call the 5 personal fouls against the Ravens, this game isn’t even close.

  38. jerrycolatrella says: Dec 6, 2010 12:58 PM

    Joe Flacco has a long way to go before he is better or even gets to the level of Ben Roethlisberger on a football field.

    Can any fan, especially a Ravens fan say Flacco would have done the same thing with a Steeler defender hanging on him the way Ben alluded Suggs?

  39. wawa33 says: Dec 6, 2010 1:19 PM

  40. mswravens says: Dec 6, 2010 3:55 PM

    Herokraven – how stupid are you? You say the Ravens are failures because the Falcons, Pats & Steelers got ‘em? Well the Pats & Ravens got you…both at Heinz Field! You barely beat the Falcons @ home & we barely lost to them on the road. Yeah, there’s a world of difference between these teams.

    That may be what’s so hilarious about all the trash talk – as fun as it is – can you think of two more evenly matched teams? The difference – whether it’s Ben, or The Hair, or Harrison, is that more times than not, the Steelers make a play to win the game & the Ravens don’t… And Ben has found a way to win time & time again, against the entire league…whereas Flacco has done so only on a few occasions.

    To whomever said otherwise: Flacco is progressing, and progressing toward becoming an elite QB. If you watched every game of his, you’d know that. BUT, he is far from elite at this point. He does NOT show the ability to pull out games ala Ben, or Matt Ryan (his contemporary). Bottom line, he’s progressing, but book is still out on him…and we may never know what he can do if he’s stuck with Cam Cameron or another coordinator who won’t let him audible out of bad play calls, change his protection, etc… Maybe he falls on his face when given that freedom, but it sure as hell would be nice to find out!

  41. mswravens says: Dec 6, 2010 4:07 PM

    jerrycolatrella – you’re absolutely right. I’m a Ravens fan & totally agree that Flacco would have gone down or fumbled w/Suggs hanging on him like that. so would about every other NFL QB…no one avoids sacks & breaks out of defender’s grasp like Ben. How about the 278 yd pass to Sanders (I think it was him…I could have the wrong receiver) to our 2 yd line that led to a FG? We had a free run at Ben with an unblocked DBack and Ben just missed him, rolled right & made the throw.

    Deb – Did the Steelers win or the Ravens lose? It’s a cup half-full/half-empty debate. Steelers are winners, so from yoru perspective they won the game. Ravens were the losers, so from our perspective they lost the game – and we can certainly point to the plays to back up our viewpoint. I think Steelers fans take this to mean we’re not giving them due credit for the win. Well, I think we gave this game away, but I still very much believe the Steelers were the better team last night. We had ample opportunites with great field position and did nothing. That was not all the play calling…not even close. That was Steelers defense stopping us & beating up what is touted as one of the best O-lines in football. AND THERE’S A CONVERSATION WE OUGHT TO BE HAVING IN BALTIMORE INSTEAD OF ONLY HATING ON FLACCO & CAMERON! Oher & Grubbs – both first rounders – have played like crap this year. John Abraham abused Oher. They haven’t done a decent job of run blocking all year. Grubbs/Birk/Chester up the middle get run over & look lost at times.

    This Ravens offense MIGHT be something special in another 2 years…but it will be a miracle for them to play well enough for us to win the SB this year!

  42. rwjk says: Dec 6, 2010 4:24 PM

    all i have to say is wow steelers fans are absolutely pathetic. you are clearly asinine if you believe the steelers won that game rather than the ravens losing it. the ravens dominated the steelers on both offense and defense throughout the majority of the game. and lets not forget baltimore didnt have their probowl fullback and probowl tight end and joe flacco still averaged 15.6 yards per completion and had 2 completions of 60+ yards. and lets see on defense the ravens not only held the steelers to 2.3 yards per rush, they broke your qbs face in the first quarter and then knocked your tight end the F**K out with an earth shaking forearm shiver. If it didnt come down to a few obvious plays which could have, and should have been prevented, the ravens win that game and then go on to win the afc north, which i dont doubt they can still do.

  43. rwjk says: Dec 6, 2010 4:30 PM

    and one more thing, the difference between last game and this game is that the steelers didnt lose last game, they played great, but the ravens WON last game. they came in and got the job done when they needed to, and the steelers could do NOTHING ABOUT IT. last night, the ravens made a few costly mistakes both in coaching and playing, and it hurt them. they were easily the better team last night even though the scoreboard reads differently.

  44. herokravon says: Dec 6, 2010 4:35 PM

    @ rwjk –

    The game was about as even as it gets. There were injuries on both sides. Neither team could run the ball. Pittsburgh had a lot of dropped passes. Final score is all that matters.

  45. realhousewivesofcincinnati says: Dec 6, 2010 5:57 PM

    @ rwjk

    You sound like my 8 year old neice when she doesnt get what she wants and throws a temper tantrum. “When the Steelers won, they actually LOST! But when the Ravens won, they actually WON!” — great assessment there Billy Madison.

    Take off the bias goggles and know your football. The Steelers were without 4 STARTERS last night as well and everyone in the entire league has 1/3 of their roster in turmoil* during this stretch of the season.

    It was a very even keel* game of field position, hard hits (Ravens had a few more), and sparse big plays (hence the low score). Neither the Ravens nor the Steelers dominated in any facet — just look at the numbers. Steelers had 19 more total yards, over 8 minutes more in TOP, and most importantly 3 more points when the game was over. Not too mention the 2 big pass plays that were called back on the Steelers offense and killed their drives (illegal formation, holding).

    Yeah complete domination by the Ravens though. The Steelers finished (10 unasnwered points in the 4th) and the Ravens did not. If my Aunt had balls she’d be my Uncle so throw the woulda coulda shoulda immature rant out the window. Let the adults argue.

    Now, tell your mother thanks for reading this to you and have fun watching the Spongebob marathon on Nickelodeon for the rest of today.

    The difference between this game and the last game is that the Steelers won. The Steelers came in and got the job done when they needed to and the Ravens could do nothing about it.

    See how that works?

    Style points mean NOTHING. It’s all about the wins and losses. Good teams find a way to win. And considering the penalties we’ve had the past three games–yeah, we keep finding ways to win. It doesnt’ matter if the score was 13-10 or 33-3. A win is a win. Seems to me a lot of Ravens fans (probably you included) after the first game were saying “doesnt’ matter if the win was against your third strong QB, a win is a win.”

    So take your own advice my friend and admit defeat. Don’t be a sore loser.

    “they were easily the better team last night even though the scoreboard reads differently.”

    Like I said, it does’t matter if you outgained us 400 yards to 50, all that mattes is the score at the end of the game. Deal with it.

  47. Deb says: Dec 6, 2010 6:17 PM

    @mswravens …

    Honestly … I was such a nervous wreck through that game that I didn’t study the play in the trenches like I normally would have LOL Agree, though, that it was probably as you said. I was ready to whack our offense, too. Can’t get too upset at the line for buckling when they’re missing starters and playing that kind of pass rush. But I do expect our receivers to hold onto the ball if Ben can actually get it there … geez. Bryant McFadden wasn’t having a great night, but all in all, both defenses were so impressive. Terrell Suggs was really having a Pro Bowl night.

    I think people are a little hard on Flacco. Don’t think he has Ben’s natural talent, but he’s a steady performer, good leader who’ll definitely keep you in a game. Maybe Oher is having a second-year slump. I’m a big Bama fan and don’t remember hearing Mt. Cody’s name–is he injured or was he just quiet last night? Or was I just too nervous to notice him? :)

  48. dirtdawg55 says: Dec 6, 2010 7:17 PM

    Ratbird fans want to believe it was a dominant performance and they allowed one ot get away. Well, that’s a perspective, but it isn’t necessarily the truth. Let’s exam the facts.

    At no point during the game were the Ravens out in front by more than a single score. They had 14 first downs, 3 by penalty. The Steelers had 17 with 2 by penalty. The Ravens had 43 yards rushing, 2.2 per carry. The Steelers had 54 yards rushing, 2.3 per carry. The Steelers had 234 net yards passing. The Ravens had 226 net yards passing, with 128 coming on two plays (yes, two great plays but without them the Ravens managed 98 net yards passing). The Ravens turned the ball over twice, the Steelers only once. The Ravens had 3 sacks. The Steelers had 4. Both teams had 9 penalties called against them. The Ravens had the ball for just under 26 minutes. The Steelers had the ball for 34. So, if you didn’t see the game and only saw the final score and these stats, who would you say “dominated”?

    I would say it was a dominant performance by two great defences. But one remains just a little better than the other. Just as it has since 2000.

THE RAVENS LOST IT FLAT OUT! the Ravens D owned the Steelers all night… the “almight” Big Ben was kept under wraps and couldn’t drive the length of the field once… and the so called “illegal hit” on heath miller was NOT illegal in my opinion… McClain started tackling in the strike zone then Heath dropped down and an extremely high rate of speed… it wasn’t intentional and in my opinion was NOT illegal… i think most of the hits that were fine this year WEREN’T illegal… you can’t adjust that quickly at that rate of speed…

    oh my. well first of all let me congratulate you on making a few funnies in your response there. you referred to me as billy madison, said your aunt might have balls, and then told me to watch nickolodeon as my mommy reads to me. ohhh my well done you are just brilliant. you have the witty comical genius that reminds me of a woody allen mixed with bill murry and steve martin. oh and thank you for the definition of those monstrous words you used in your post. that proves how smart you are and how stooopid i am i guess (notice how i spelled stupid. look i made a funny too). thank you for putting me in my place and using your really cool and COMPLEX statistics (man you must be smart) to show me how the steelers really did win last night by scoring 3 more points.

    Cam Cameron lost this game for the Ravens… and who cares if it were 2 big plays or 5 small ones.. yards are yards buddy… Cam Cameron has lost almost every game this year because of his bonehead plays… the ENTIRE steeler defense was playing the run because that’s what SHOULD HAVE BEEN CALLED!

    @ the same joke

    “When the Steelers won, they actually LOST! But when the Ravens won, they actually WON!”
    yeah because that is actually what i said (sarcasm), idiot. before objectively attacking what someone says and trying to one up them and make them look stoooopid (which is what i am), make sure what you say in response to them actually applies, otherwise it just makes you look stupid (which is what you arent, because you used huge words. you just made a mistake thats all.) what i said was the game last night was the ravens to lose and by their own mistakes, they lost it. maybe you still dont understand, its alright im just incapable of explanation cus im dumb. and im tired of wasting time on here

    Definitely disappointed in Ray. It is obvious he isn’t as much of a stand up guy as he says he is. With that said, I still cannot wait until he retires.

    @rwjk

    Im pretty sure the final box score of the game is what makes your crybaby rant look stupid, not my jokes.

    “the ravens dominated the steelers on both offense and defense throughout the majority of the game.”

    “they were easily the better team last night”

    Did someone slip some MDMA in your cereal this morning? You call going up a whopping 10-3 for 35 minutes of play, domination?

    Look at the total yards, time of possession, first downs, POINTS SCORED, etc. Numbers dont lie brother. I know the Ravens made more hits and at times looked more physical, but dont let that cloud your brain when forgetting about all the 3 and outs and punting their offense did that night (6 punts for each team). Not too mention the missed sacks and first downs they gave up on d.

    Side note — theres a button on your keyboard called “shift”. Hold that down while pressing a letter and that will capitalize the letter when trying to put a sentence together. Or you can use the “caps lock” button, but lets not get ahead of ourselves. Baby steps.

    “the “almight” Big Ben was kept under wraps and couldn’t drive the length of the field once”

    Umm, you sure you were at the game? Or did you eat the same cereal as rwjk this morning?

    Can anyone help me figure this one out? The statistician that was also at this same game as the ever so brilliant raven4life21 marked down in the box score that the Steelers had 288 total yards, 17 first downs, and 13 POINTS ON THE SCOREBOARD. But, according to raven4life21, the Steelers didnt drive the length of the field ONCE! Ive never been to M&T Bank Stadium, but your seats must have been higher than Donte Stallworth on a Friday night in Miami!

    Uh oh…too soon?

    @rwjk:
    i believe dirtdawg just blew your domination theory completely out of the water. we outrushed you both in total and by carry. we out passed you (in net yardage if you count the sacks), sacked your qb more, and FORCED a pivotal fumble when the game was on the line. if you were dominating as you’d have us believe, you would’ve given the ball to a RB on 2nd and five, but you didnt. your OC decided that his “dominant” offense had to get cute and try to pass. is that what passes for domination in b-more? guess that explains a lot.

    i am sticking up for the fans in baltimore… football is and always will be in our blood… this offseason with our new additions we were hyped as one of the top dogs in the league and a high caliber SB contender… we were finally gonna have an offense! but it hasn’t lived up to what we thought it would in week 14 nonetheless! so people are a little mad about that… and all of us in Baltimore were CERTAIN that we were gonna put a hurtin on the Steelers Dec 5th! which we did physically! but with the lapse of the offense especially with the blown O’line coverage in the 4th with Polamalus strip… it crushed our dreams… us Baltimorians dream about sweeping Pittsburgh on a daily basis… we hate them… mostly Hines Ward and many of their fans who will use any excuse in the book to defend themselves (mostly the 6 ring thing which has NOTHING TO DO WITH THIS YEAR or any year after the fact) to be honest… all we wanted for Christmas was a sweep over the Steelers and a home playoff game… all of that was crushed that Sunday night… so i can see the frustration in many fans eyes and mouths… but I will NEVER stop wearing my Ravens gear… and neither will MANY OTHERS… we are Ravens fans… we are here and we are proud of our 9-4 team… the expectations may not have been fully met but we are proud of where we are regardless of how upset we may feel/act or how many fans call in over the radio to complain… i myself just wanted a home playoff game… but i am the first to look for tix to an away playoff game and go if my wallet permits… Let’s Go Ravens! I am proud of all of you regardless of the turnout! Let’s finish this out with a big BANG!
