Ravens defense coming unraveled, Broncos cruising

Getty Images

The Ravens defense, or what’s left of it, is coming unglued.

Playing without four of their top five tacklers, and with Terrell Suggs in and out of the game, the Ravens are being peppered by the Broncos, who just took a 31-3 lead in the third quarter.

On a 51-yard touchdown pass by Eric Decker, safety Ed Reed was playing shallow, leaving cornerback Cary Williams with no help up top. Williams pulled up as Decker cruised into the end zone, and Reed slammed his helmet in frustration as he walked to the sideline.

Reed had previously been hurdled by Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno, making it a forgettable day for the Ravens. It’s so bad that while I was typing, the Broncos just scored again. I can’t keep up.

    Its only one week. Lewis will be back next week and the defense will be back on track again. Flacco will have another week to work with his new OC and he will have a monster game next week and that will give the Raven team the momentum they need to win it all.

    At least the ravens didnt lose to Oakland, Clevland and the Charges… lol

    John Harbaugh’s decision to go with a new offensive coordinator was a stroke of genius!!!

    Haha the last sentence is hilarious! Ravens might as well punt on first down

    Defense? Whole team is unraveling. Doubt they win another game this year.

    Josephine Flacco HAS TO BE the greatest QB I’ve ever watched play the game……NOT!!!

    Glad to see the Ravens players dropping like flies…Now they too can realize exactly what injuries can do to a team!

    Where’s all the talk now Ravenator?

    Defense is old and slow, offense can’t get a first down, “elite” Flacco throwing pick 6’s – not even going to make the playoffs!!

  9. Steeley McBeam says: Dec 16, 2012 3:19 PM

    This is not a playoff team and Flacco is not an NFL QB.

    The defense has done everything it could against Peyton Manning, with 7 of the starting 11 defenders out/unavailable…

    But the offense gifted him 10 points – including that Flacco interception that totally ruined a great drive and made winning today damn near impossible.

    Totally disappointed in the offensive play. Joe laid a big ass egg.

    We’ll probably back into the playoffs, and likely finish the regular season 10-6.

    Defense is old, slow & beat up

  12. steelerforlife says: Dec 16, 2012 3:28 PM

    Oh wow first touchdwn ratbirds get wait they get helped by refs bcus broncos defender touched em should’ve been down by contact..bad call

  13. beerbaron says: Dec 16, 2012 3:30 PM

    Flacco’s terrible, but he’ll probably be re-signed because there aren’t many other options. Defense is awful and getting older every year.

    I’m sure delusional Ravens fans will convince themselves they’re a contender next fall, but I’d rather be a Bengals or Browns fan at this point.

  14. Nofoolnodrool says: Dec 16, 2012 3:30 PM

    Ravens with help from the refs (again) score a td. What a powerhouse…not. Randallflag52 please don’t hide?

  15. pastabelly says: Dec 16, 2012 3:36 PM

    That team is in a free fall. Firing Cameron did nothing for Flacco and that horrible offense.

  16. steelerforlife says: Dec 16, 2012 3:36 PM

    Broncos running it and ravens can’t stop it pathetic

  17. steelerforlife says: Dec 16, 2012 3:38 PM

    Broncos running it and ravens can’t stop it pathetic..empty bank staduim is quiet like a church mouse

  18. ravensdominate says: Dec 16, 2012 3:48 PM

    The wheels are coming off. We’re too hurt

  19. grogansheroes says: Dec 16, 2012 3:49 PM

    Boy, the Raven’s are lucky they have nine wins. Should be 7-7. Refs gifted them a win against the Pats, and well, check down Flaccid got lucky against SD. Good thing the rest of the division is mediocre.

  20. ravenator says: Dec 16, 2012 3:50 PM

    Laugh all you want, Ravens have performed better than any other divisional rival. Are they a super bowl bound team, probably not, are they the best in the division, obviously so.

  21. iamtonyarmstrong says: Dec 16, 2012 4:01 PM

    It is hilarious that the random Steeler fans show up to talk shxt…

    Hmmm…Steelers are 3rd in our division, have lost to Cleveland (!), Oakland (!!!), Tennessee and San Diego. Clinging to playoff hopes…

    Yet, they remain as douche-y and “humble” as ever…

    As distasteful as it its, I’ll take backing into the playoffs (and perhaps the Division crown) over the struggle life of making the dance.

    Oh, and it might take another year for y’all to get the nasty taste of being Tebowed LAST year out of your mouths…

    *Waits patiently for the “we-have-five-Lombardi’s” fallback comments…

    Ravens haven’t performed better they just have a better record. How’s it feel to eat humble pie ator? You and Brent should get together with your wild comic book Predictions.

  23. malvaren18 says: Dec 16, 2012 4:22 PM

    Excuses, excuses, excuses that is all I here, Broncos are the best admitted, 13-3. Tebow who”

  24. ravensgrl says: Dec 16, 2012 4:24 PM

    The Ravens D played a great game today… Our offense stunk up the joint

  25. brentfarve says: Dec 16, 2012 4:43 PM

    Come on Ravens fans dont jump off the band wagon now! The Ravens are still the best team in the AFC and will win the superbowl this year. Rav en ator why are you giving up now…. it is a guaranteed Championship this year!

    Flacco = Elite
    Rice = HOF

  26. mrmidevil says: Dec 16, 2012 7:16 PM

    I have been saying this was goin to happen all season. The ravens are overratted, they struggle with bad teams and get owned by good ones. One and done in the playoffs

  27. troysmithsghost says: Dec 17, 2012 6:42 AM

    My god they looked putrid, on both sides of the ball. The game was a bigger blowout than even the score indicated.
