That certainly was sloppy and ugly. I'll give credit both ways because the defenses are good, but both offenses looked pretty bad.
I guess I was expecting a little more from the Jets O and a lot more from the Ravens O. Ravens should have a potent downfield attack, instead of just putting it up there and hoping to get a penalty. Sanchez can't piss three feet in front of himself. I'd give the Ravens a better chance at improving on O, but neither looked all that good.
I was expecting more too and I'd be bothered a lot more if the Ravens had lost since I feel they had opportunities and messed them up.
But being that it was the first game of the year and they beat a thought to be tough conference team on the road I wont worry about it too much. I think most of the problem was Joe, and some of was him being sloppy and some of seemed like he and the recievers were on a different page which should hopefully change as they get used to each other. Oddly enough I thought his best pass of the night was the one Heap dropped (probably because Jonzr bribed him) in the end zone.
Not sure what I expect this week, the Bengals had him looking very confused both games last season.
This is all true. Bengals are something like 5 of their last 7 v. the Ravens, IIRC, FWIW. Bengals were downright dominated v. the Pats. No shame in that: Pats look retooled, for as long as Brady and Moss are there/healthy. Shame is that the Bengals look overhyped, old, and in for another year of inflated hopes and ego implosions. Shame for them, not the rest of the div.
Still, Bengals could be a trap for the Ravens.
