Mason is right
He's just telling it like it is. he's right. With all the talent on offense
we shouldn't score less than 20 points on anyone. He doesn't know
why they can't go full throttle on O.
Says he'll get crucified for saying that. I saw it on TV.
"You wonder why you come back and play after stuff like this," Mason said after the Ravens' 13-10 loss to Pittsburgh. "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."
The Ravens' offense essentially lost the game in the fourth quarter, when Joe Flacco was stripped of the ball in Ravens' territory (which led to the Steelers' go-ahead touchdown) and failed to get within field-goal range to tie the game at the end.
"It's sad to say, but we're just not a good offense at times. We really aren't," Mason said. "For whatever reason it is, I don't know. But we're not a good offense at times. I'm not pointing any fingers at anybody because I'm part of the equation, but we're just not a good offense at times."
The Ravens were held under 20 points for the second straight week. It's the sixth time that they have been limited to 20 points or less this season.
"All these people we've got on offense -- I might get crucified for this one -- but all these people we've got on offense and we're not a good offense at times," Mason said. "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."
Mason added, "We've just got to come to a point where it's stop all the [expletive] and play football. Put some points on the board and not allow teams to come back in the second half, not put the pressure on our defense to have to stop somebody in the last second of the game. Just [expletive] put some points on the board and move forward."
