    I woulda called the timeout at 2:50 making it more dangerous to pass on 3rd down and potentially getting the ball back with more time on the clock. Calling a TO early always gives you the potential to get more time on the clock. Waiting never gives you a chance at extra time.

    They played it right and put the pressure on the Ravens offense to convert a 3rd and 7, the mistake was Kiesel's brain cramp offside penalty.

    Totally agree. Rare lack of focus by Kiesel is what screwed us. Nothing wrong with the timeout.

    It can't be overstated how horrendous this was. 2 timeouts gone and still couldn't come up with a TD play. Head scratching bad.

    The T.O. at 2:04 was smart. Keisel screwed it up with the penalty but I guess it's hard to blame certain players on this team when they make mistakes.

    You're kidding right? This has nothing to do with Ben. What are you, Leftys adoptive father? To come away with a field goal is disappointing. To come away with a field goal AND burn two timeouts is a disaster.

    The play didn't get in on time?!?! How? When you had a full time out beforehand.

    That was the game right there. To that point, our run game was having their way. And we abandonded it at the goal line. Having Lefty throw a fade pass into the end zone seems like it had far less chance of success than any kind of crafty run play. Pound it up the middle, Mendy on the outside, a reverse - anything but a rusty, old, hurt QB trying to throw a fade to a relatively short Wallace who apparently wasn't willing to sacrifice his body to keep the 2nd foot in bounds.
