Not really, but this move by the Ravens may put Herr Goodell's mind to work on it.

Wow.   Well, you gotta figure somebody will give him a shot.  I'm surprised that Anquan Boldin and TJ Doucheyomomma didn't satisfy the Ratties.

Intentional or accidental?  Either way, well-played!

I guess the Ravens must go to great lengths to try and make Joe Flaggelance into a franchise QB, but I'm beginning to think the guy just doesn't have it.  He's good, but seems to be missing some kind of "It" factor needed to take them to the next level.

Maybe the "It" that he needs is the ability to beat Ben Roethlisberger?  Lucky or not, seem Ben is to Joe as Brady is to Ben.

That was a happy accident, aka, money shot in Otis' parlance.  The Ravens need to get  lucky on a couple of young & speedy guys like the Steelers did this season.  Going for another retread (same 'ol strategy) won't make much of a difference for those guys.

LOL -- Burress.

Not to defend Flacco (or any Raven for that matter), but IMO, he isn't the reason the Ravens lost to Pittsburgh.  OK, the botched snap seemed to be his fault from all the angles I saw.  But, how many times did his receivers let him down?  He put it right on Boldin's hands in the EZ for a sure TD that was dropped.  Pretty sure the generally reliable Mason had one drop and even that final play, 4th and a mile pass hit Douchey right in his paws.

You're forgetting about the interception, which was a horrible read and a worse throw.  Let us right back in the game.

I'd grade Flacco a C- for the game, and the WR's get an F.
