Ravens Fans Weigh In On Monday Night Loss To Jaguars
BALTIMORE (WJZ)—It seems everyone is weighing in about why the Ravens lost against the Jaguars on Monday Night Football.
Weijia Jiang has more on what fans are saying.
WJZ took our Fan Cam everywhere. And there’s no sugar-coating it. What people have to say is not pretty, but they’re not ready to throw in the towels just yet.
If not for signs splattered across town, you might not know Baltimore is usually bursting with purple pride.
“Terrible, they really did bad,” said a Ravens fan. “Real bad.”
“He kept getting jammed, jammed. Jaguars were after blood and they got it,” said Jen, a Ravens fan.
“I think they could have done a better job,” said Keith Lipford.
From downtown to a random bus stop on Bel Air Road to Cross Street Market, the outlook for the Ravens season is anything but rosy and sweet after a stunning 12-7 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Adding insult to injury, it was a primetime game on Monday Night Football.
“I just don’t think they came to play,” Lipford said. “It’s almost like they were playing the level of their expected competition as opposed to playing their A game.”
Everyone seems to have their own theory. Just check out our WJZ Fan Cam responses:
“I blame it on the coaches,” one fan said. “They didn’t readjust when they found out how the defense was playing them.”
“My biggest disappointment last night was how undisciplined we were,” said Patrick from Fells Point. “It’s not in our nature.”
“Joe Flacco and Ray Rice couldn’t get anything started until it was too late,” said Mamady from Loch Raven.
“The receivers wasn’t getting open and when they were they were getting mugged,” said a fan.
“Turnovers, turnovers,” a fan said.
Even on the airwaves, fans can’t help but vent.
“Everybody is getting ready to jump off the bridge and basically pointing the finger at Flacco,” said one fan.
On Twitter Ray Rice posted: “This will see who is really with us.”
And despite being down for now everyone we talked to is.
“It’s not over. We’re just down. We’re not out. We just had a bad day. That’s all,” said Joann Bell, Ravens fan.
A bad day but fans say it’s time to move on, so they’re brushing it off and getting ready for Sunday.
The Ravens are back home next Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals and will face former teammate Todd Heap.
