Observations on a beautiful fall day at M&T:
Listening to the post game talk shows , I am still bewildered by the constant harping about Flacco. Keep it up and the fans will run #5 out of town. His protection in the first half was pathetic. What kind of offensive line allows free runs at their QB’s blind side. well the left side sure did!!!
Flacco’s pass to Boldin was a thing of beauty. His pass to Torrey was a shade underthrown and 82 made a great play. Torrey finished the day with 3 catches and 84 yards and no #82 jersey for sale by the Ravens.
To my uneducated eye, it seemed Haloti was being held virtually every play with 0 calls. As nearly always the defense was stupendous.
Introductions of the offense ws met with very little enthusiasm. When Ray eventually retires in 5 or 6 years, Here Comes The Ravens will suffice.
Billy Cundiff is amazing. Whenthe Ravens made a fair catch with 31 seconds left in the first half at their 40, I harkened back to the old NFL days when a frre kick with no tee was allowed for a FG. Think I’m nuts –look it up.
O oh oh oh oh o o—is great –100 times better then DeeeeeFence
With Ngata and Cory Redding up front why would Ray retire. He had 12 tackles today.
Here’s a question–When Ricky Williams scored to put the Ravens up 26 -14 why didn’t we go for 2. The Texans would have to score 2 TDs –which though unlikely could happen which would have led to a 28-27 defeat. Somebody explain to me the thinking.
AROUND THE NFL
Darrius Heyward Bey –6 catches 84 yards
As I predicted the Eagles easily took care of the redskins.
Jim Harbaugh might be the newest NFL coach but his propensity to show up the other team will bite him one day. His performance in Detroit was absurd. When other coaches get the 49ers down— there will be no mercy allowed.
