  1. Exactly. I would not say he played well - he did just enough to win, and obviously got very lucky on that pass.
  2. IMO Flacco is fairly far down on the list as to what cost us the game yesterday. Benching him would not be productive in any fashion.
  3. After yesterday, I'm inclined to officially declare Perriman a bust.
  4. The same thing that seems to be wrong with many teams in the NFL - inconsistency in all phases of the game and lack of discipline. I've never seen a more unpredicable season thus far.
  5. Totally agree. When the Ravens have been a balanced team, Flacco is absolutely at his best. He might not throw for 4000 yards(biggest most misleading stat on Earth), but he'll make 4 or 5 plays a game in which he just breaks the defense. Flacco is a great play action QB, and he's great in hurry-up. Those are the areas he is at his best. Where he's at his worst is when it's obvious passing downs - it's not entirely his fault, the line often gets blown up badly, but it's also just not where he can do the most damage.
  6. Great post, really hits the mark. It does look like Ben is getting close to the end. He just looks slow and fat to me. I never got the impression he was much into working out, more into drinking and partying. Maybe the partying slowed down after he got married(still question if that wasn't for show to this day, honestly), but he looks bloated as hell. Good riddance indeed. Never liked the guy, Steeler or not.
  7. Of course you quoted me before I had a chance to fix an honest autocorrect from my phone. However, let's just leave this right here, and maybe talk about your elitist, snobtastic attitude towards people you don't agree with. I am not a progressive, obviously. I guess I should sell my truck, power boat, fishing rods, boots, flannel shirts, cigars, beer, and focus on mah edumacation, eh? I mean obviously studying electrical engineering while at the same time working a civilian job on an army base as a computer programmer, learning Fortran 77 in a week and writing an award-winning piece of software in it by the time I was the age of 20 wasn't enough to satisfy the liberal elite snobs who think they are the smartest people in the room. I guess all of these years later studying and learning no less than two dozen different programming languages, being asked to lead seminars at conventions, writing countless successful software applications doesn't matter, because god forbid, my phone and my clumsy fingers tapped the wrong word and you got to quote it before I could correct the mistake to score some pissing contest points. Congrats. You're smarter than I. You're more liberal, enlightened, and EDUCATED. But hey, there's hope for me, I could enroll at some liberal college, shell out 55k per year and get a nice degree in Advanced Social Justice and join the hordes of bandwagon sheep hipsters in their snobbery and look down my nose at anyone, and everything masculine. Well, I do have a cat. So there's that
  8. Well, she might be that careless, lol. But in truth, I agree with you, and did prior to the election as well(as I stated repeatedly). Both candidates were probably two of the worst in modern history, too bad Gary Johnson came off as such a doofus stoner to make any inroads. I voted for Johnson anyway though.
  9. Of course you have no understanding of freedom, given your progressive views.
  10. No, what pisses people off is watching both your rate and deductible triple or quadruple in two short years.
  11. Driving is a privilege. Breathing air is not.
  12. TBH, I think the Ravens still have to win a road game that I initially would have thought a loss due to losing at home to the Steelers and in London to the Jags(two expected wins) in order to win the division. @Minny looks like their best shot. If they can finish the first half of the season at 6-2, I really, really like their chances to win the division. We'll learn a lot about the Steelers on Sunday. Much like the Ravens, they seem to be a Jekyll/Hyde team, you just have no idea what you're going to get. I think for a lot of teams, the political BS has hurt them drastically. It was pretty evident for the Ravens against the Jags, and probably the first half of the Steelers game. The crowd booing even when they took a knee BEFORE the anthem, even with Bruce Cunningham explaining what they were doing, no question in my mind affected how the Ravens came out for that game. Had the game been in Pissburgh, and their fans booed them similarly, I think they would have been the team coming out flat. The Steelers problems go beyond it perhaps. There seems to be genuine dissent in the lockerroom. I don't know if it's political/racial, etc, but it is definitely there. I don't know about Ben. I hadn't realized he hasn't really played well in quite some time, going on around 10 or 11 games. He, and the team are going to have to have a good showing against the Chiefs. If they get hammered, I think their chances drop drastically, and really open the door for the Ravens, and perhaps even the Bengals if they can get their feet under them to some degree. I've learned never to count the Steelers out though. So many times they look like they're on the precipice after a bad loss or two, and seem to work their way back. Then again, you could say the same about a lot of teams, including the Ravens. The NFL has truly become a week-to-week league.
  13. Two things were inherently wrong with Obamacare. 1. Forcing people to carry insurance or pay a fine was wrong, and un-American. 2. Not allowing competition across state lines was patently ridiculous, foolish, and allowed insurance companies to gouge the consumer.
  14. You got that right! This thread explains a lot now.
