Ravens Problems Start at the Top

Ravens won’t win again until September!

This team is a stock that is begging to be sold high!

RG3 may set the single game record for rushing yards by a QB in a game against us this week.

Plain and simple this is a terrible matchup for the Ravens pitting two teams heading in opposite directions.

We may beat Cincinnati but that’s it.

Let’s be honest here, the Ravens stink and Haloti Ngata may be the most overrated player in the NFL. I watched him almost exclusively Sunday. He is terrible.

When a defense has Webb, Smith, Ray and Suggs injured, you would think your studs would put the team on their backs. Haloti is just Ngata factor. His first move on all snaps is to stand straight up. He never fires off the ball… not once.

He is the bum that ESPN’s Mark Schlereth said he would be when he was drafted.

It’s all just really disappointing. Makes you wonder what the heck the coaches are doing.

Also, it is becoming clearer and clearer to me that Harbaugh is just a Bisciotti puppet. The guess here is that Harbaugh, either consciously or subconsciously, feels indebted to Bisciotti for hiring him when he wasn’t qualified. Therefore, Harbaugh is tied to this Flacco situation and changing the Ravens’ identity… all because Bisciotti wants to join the pass-happy party. He wants to have a household name who can help him sell t-shirts and somehow break out of the walls that keep the Ravens pinned in from the rest of the country.

Those walls are the Eagles to the north, Steelers to the west, Redskins to the south and the ocean to the east.

But back to the point, Bisciotti is so repulsed by not having a QB that he is trying to force the issue now. It is propagating down through the organization and I think it is sinking the Ravens. Bisciotti’s statements about how he was willing to give up the entire draft to move up to get Matt Ryan, his attempt at hiring Jason Garrett, his claim that Flacco is the “one reason” that the Ravens window of opportunity has remained open… all of these are pieces of circumstantial evidence that is slowly building a case against him.

Everyone wants to blame Cam, but Harbaugh is on that same headset. He knows the plays. He is ultimately responsible. I say Cam isn’t running the ball because Harbaugh wants to pass it, and Harbaugh wants to pass because Bisciotti loves Flacco and wants a passing offense so he can join the “cool kids” club.
