    They don't hear you.

    People have been waiting...frothing at the mouth to start the "I told you so" campaign regarding Jones...in fact, I think some people are a little annoyed that he has been much better than they thought.
    Although Walsh's system of offense can compensate for lack of talent; however, defense is a different story. According to Walsh, talent on defense was essential and could not be compensated for. What did Walsh do in 1981? He acquired physical and talented players on defense.

    I don't quite understand what you mean. Can you explain?

    Sorry, I think you are grading unnecessarily harshly on that play.
    For what it's worth, if you watch the "behind the bench" of that game, Jacoby was really disappointed in himself and apologized a few times.

    Re: Jacoby Jones

    I think the Ravens should give Jacoby Jones a contract extension after this season. He has a $4.5 million cap number next year, which the Ravens could bring down by adding a couple of years to his contract. Jones looks to me to be a lot like Pollard, in that he has found a home in Baltimore and will thrive here for the next few years.

    Totally agree. He has won games for us and has not lost one. Adds a great deal to the team.

Against Oakland, he dropped one that he should have caught, for being 6' 2", and it ended up being intercepted. Fortunately, the Ravens were playing Oakland and the offense was on fire. Yesterday's drop really put a hurting on the offensive momentum and Flacco ended up getting sacked the following play.
    You can have that feeling, but goodness gracious man, he is the best #3 WR we have ever had and the best returner we have had since jermaine lewis. He has exceded all expectations coming into the season and has earned the right to play out year two of his deal. Without him we would have lost both the steelers game and the cowboys game. I almost agree with boulder that jones should see more snaps as the #2. Thats a lot of speed on the field when you him and torrey out there together. Give the guy a break ex, he was probably our best offseason aquisition this year.

    With Jones, Pollard and Leach coming from Houston and doing well here, all I can say is... Come on JJ Watt, you know you want to...
    I told everyone that if I went to Pittsburgh I would have to throw up on my jersey every time I played, - Double J will always be a Raven

    People bashing Flacco, yet he put the team on his back and won the damn game.

    I'm getting so sick of people crying and bitching half way through a game and saying things like "we'll lose out the season" (can't find the quote, probably got deleted). Have some fucking faith in your team, we're 9-2 for a reason. Are they sloppy wins? yes, but good teams put up stats, great times win games...fact

    /rant

    Good call! I too read the board during games and can't believe I am looking at fan post's.

    I would not be surprised at all if Reed retires/walks in the offseason, that we would sign Glover Quinn the FS for the Texans who happens to be a FA in 2013.

    For some reason, it seems like Ex decided Jacoby was going to suck based on nothing the instant we signed him. IIRC he started threads bashing him before his first snap as a Raven. So I guess he just sees what fits his preconceived notions. That particular play was a good play by Huff, a bad bounce, and by know means a ball he "should have" caught. But whatever.

    Anyway, he was solid last night just like he's been all season. Overlooked, but in addition to his own contributions, that 54 yard catch and run by Torrey that got us our first points is a 10-15 yard gain max if not for a fantastic downfield block by Jacoby

    Not to mention the block he was making during the 4th and 29 play. His blocking down field has been very good all season.
