I know I'm going to rain all over the "We won the game" fans, and I'm usually in that group myself, but this really was not the Ravens game I was hoping to see coming out of the bye week. The defense was not too bad, but that offense is just embarrassing. There's not too many games you're going to win with three good drives. All those 3-and-outs put too much pressure on the D.
The Browns QB has some talent, but the guy is way over his head right now. And the coach should really be fired. Going for it on 4th down deep in your own territory with four minutes to go in the game, especially when the Ravens offense was mostly useless in the second half, was insane. And didn't they have a TD taken off the board due to an illegal procedure penalty, or did I just dream that as I dozed due to lack of football by the Ravens? If they had been playing a real football team they would have been in trouble.
The issue was especially stark when I watched the Steelers vs. the Giants in the next game, two real football teams the Ravens will have to deal with. I have this theory that they tend to play down to their competition, so maybe they will get up for those games. I hope this is true.
