    And I'll continue to express it, as long as I consider it to be valid. Let's see what happens in 2007.

    Congrats skay for becoming the most annoying poster on both the YBR and 24x7 message boards. You must think we're all stupid since you repeat the same damn thing over and over in every thread. We all know how you feel about Billick. As dumb as your opinion is in my opinion, it's already well documented, so you can start discussing other topics.

    You won't change my mind on Billick just yet. 2 division titles, a superbowl title, and 4 playoff appearances in 9 years ain't that bad. Throw in the fact that we have the best home record in football since 2000, and that other crazy stat of his, I think he is like 40-1 when he has a 14 point lead or more in any game. He is one of 7 active coaches in the NFL with a ring. Those numbers don't lie. He brought credibility to this franchise, and has put us in a position every year but 1, where we have a shot at the postseason. What else do you want? Only one team can win the superbowl every year. Historically, the most successfull franchises have one thing in common. Continuity.

    And as far as the Mcnair/Boller argument. I know Steve is not the only reason for our success this year, but he is the general on the field. He led this team to that record. Opposing teams had to scheme us differently this year because he was behind center, not Boller. Don't forget that.

    Wow. A post without reference to Billick. My job here is done.

    Your job was done before you started. What's the point in discussing ANYTHING about this team's offense -- which was, is, and will continue to be BILLICK'S offense as long as he's here -- WITHOUT factoring him into the discussion? It wouldn't make any difference WHAT WRs we have, or WHAT QB we have -- as long as Billick doesn't feel comfortable THROWING THE BALL in a way that challenges the opposing D. What, were you so drunk watching the Cinci game in Cinci that you failed to notice NOT ONE SINGLE DEEP PASS UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE OF THE GAME?

    So the bottom line is...you can talk about the draft; you can talk about our QBs; you can talk about our wideouts til the cows come home. When it comes to how the Ravens' offense is run, the limiting link is Brian Billick, any way you slice it. If you feel some personal attack because I'm critical of Billick, then that's your problem. But these boards are here for fans to voice our opinions. And if you don't like my opinions -- while it'll certainly cause me many sleepless nights -- somehow, I''ll get over it.

    GO RAVENS!!!

    Thing is, McNair had more than just an "off" day.


    Thats is the double standard. I know that if Boller just had the identical season to McNair with the identical end, we'd be 13-3 "in spite of him" and he'd get the blame for the loss.



    170 2 INTs that were drive killers, that is worse than an off day. He laid a turd and deserves the blame.


    The fact that I dont hear anyone blaming him bothers me more. I'd rather have McNair and come out and apologize for a shit game than hear Ray say it wasn't his fault. It was.


    A total lack of exectution, locking onto primary WRs and staring them down. I thought thats why we demoted Boller?

    So, CBD...correct me if I'm wrong...but it sounds to me as if you're looking for some vindication of Boller -- even though he wasn't involved in this game -- based on past discussions in which you feel McNair got praised and Boller got dissed unfairly. Does that about cover it?

    GO RAVENS!!!

    Sorry, but I doubt that. At least for most - since there are some who will never give Boller any credit - for most, if Boller had played as well as McNair did this season, they'd be more than happy for him.

    Then you obviously aren't paying much attention. Just about everyone has said he had a very bad game. I've seen no one excuse him for that - NO ONE.

    And McNair said so himself, as well.

    See, it's shit like this that makes me not take you seriously. What fucking board are you reading?

    And Stinger, of course you and I and any reasonable, at least somewhat objective fan knows that this is a team sport and everybody has a hand in wins in losses.

    Unfortunately we also know that the QB gets the praise/blame in regards to how his team does. Of Course the entire team was the reason we went 13-4...they all won 13 games and loss 4. But fans/media do not look at it that way, and that is why you have these debates and all these Anti-McNair threads/posts.

    McNair played like shit Saturday. If you want to blame him alone for the loss...by all means go ahead. But you can't do that and then downplay his role in winning 13 games.

    It's been said but I'll say it too.

    What the hell have you been reading? Are you making shit up in you head?

    McNair played a HORRENDOUS game on Saturday. You statement is borderline insane.

    You have gone to the other end of the spectrum and have decided not to give any credit to McNair for a 13-3 season. You have spread the credit around and convienently left him out.

    WE LOST THREE GAMES.

    Best record ever as a franchise and Steve McNair was the QB. You don't achieve that record in the AFC, beat KC on the road etc.... without some good play from your QB.

    As has been stated numerous times, he really played well after settling into the offense and Billick taking over the offense. We went 9-2 after the bye.

    He played shitty on Saturday. Even the most ardent McNair supporters have freely admitted that.

    He's gonna be on this team next season and will most likely be the starter.

    FWIW, Tex/Spike...I wasn't waiting for McNair to fail so I could jump up and say: "I told you so." I was really hoping he'd bring his experience and get us to Miami. But man...you just gotta accept that HE had a bad day; it wasn't just because of Indy's D; it wasn't the receivers; HE had a bad day. Don't try to rationalize it away; it just ends up sounding stupid. Even HE acknowledged he stunk. So let it go, man...and let's just see how it goes next year.

    GO RAVENS!!!

    No doubt that Mac had a bad day, but to discount the Indy D (which played great) and poor (2 fumbles?!) receiver play just shows how biased and irrational you are.
