After the win over Houston I went on the air & explained why and how Joe Flacco and his offense / coaching staff earned my respect. I’m not going to go on and on but I take if all back. My expectations are far too high for this team and this offense specifically for Jacksonville on MNF to happen.
The teams first 1st down came with almost 5 mins left in the 3rd quarter! Having Flacco go 6-16 for 1 net yard at half. Ray Rice with 9 yards on 4 carries at half. 146 yards in the game of total offense. 2-12 on 3rd down. 10 penalties for 85 yards and to top it off an unbelievable decision to onside kick with 2:02 to go in the game. This loss is on the offense, coaches & special teams. The defense held Jacksonville to 12 points and 205 total yards. That should be win every time. I take it all back. The offensive side of the Ravens still has an amazingly scary amount of work to do and, after week seven, I’m not sure they can. How can I?
