    We have been arguing ad nausea about the WR corp, and the WR corp is affecting Flacco's play. While I do not deny that, methinks that Flacco's penchant of predetermining his reads probably hurt more than we think.
    This season, the offensive line, receiver's dropping passes and the running game have all been disappointing,however Joe Flacco's qb play has been devastating. Joe's eyes follow his intended receiver nearly every time! He gives away who the ball is going to and the defenders swarm to that receiver. How else does it explain that it seems Joe is always throwing into a crowd if he's not throwing a long ball?

    Yeah. But don't underestimate the impact his lack of trust in his protection has had on his progressions.

    To be honest, with how ridiculous and anti-offensive Harbaugh is, it wouldn't surprise me if Flacco was intentionally playing bad in this system, to get Harbaugh to buck the fuck up and adopt an offensive philosophy from this century already. Flacco took an AP Calc class in only 11th grade, he's smart. He probably long ago realized this season that the team was going nowhere because of Harbaugh's insulting, bastardized approach to playing offense in the NFL. Harbaugh isn't the type of coach that wants to score a touchdown on every possession.

    And if that's true, more power to Flacco. Because that is what I call long-term strategy.

    Tank this year, get Harbaugh to change his ways, then win many superbowls while cementing himself as the greatest playoff quarterback in NFL history.

    Sounds like a plan, Joe. Maybe if Pitta comes back soon, it will give him the rationale to start trying again. Maybe the Ravens will still win this year. Though this year will require about 16 touchdowns and no picks, rather than merely 11 touchdowns and no picks.

    Folks, leave out the personal shots. If last nights dust up happens again, the thread will be trashed.

    Kiss, make up, hug it out or do what ever you need to do but remove the jabs at one another.

    Only the Pittsburgh game and 2nd Cleveland game were during that timeframe.

    PA37 wanted us to talk about a timeframe of his making, where none of the other 'issues' that you mentioned were similar had affected Ryan, but one where Julio Jones was the sole reason. This despite the fact that this is a new argument, that Ryan had 2 excellent games and one good game out of the 6 he has played since Jones went out (and against good defenses). And that Ryan had a 5 game stretch last year just about as bad (QB rating of 83 over 5 games) with none of the same "issues," at least concerning Jones.

    And those are Flacco's 2nd and 3rd best games of the season.

    No one is saying Flacco can't manage to have a good game. Some are saying he is still having clunkers regularly and his good games aren't all that great, and some of it could be his fault. Obviously a LOT of it isn't his fault. The argument is over whether it is a lot or none (by implication).

    And worse yet, the trend is flat or negative as last week our OL played decently and we had serviceable to decent running game, and Flacco had his 2nd worst game of the season.

    You guessed wrong. No real rhetoric, and it meshes fine with my should-be-non-controversial point.
