    Why do you get your panties in a bunch over this injury reporting issue? If they really were trying to play this up for a competitive advantage of some kind, they would have said he would be a game-time decision and not announced that he was deactivated until an hour or so before kickoff on Sunday (I heard interviews from Harbaugh, Rice, and Suggs which were all somewhat expecting Ben to pull a Willis Reed this week). And yet they make the announcement that he's out on Friday.

    I think we can win this game with Batch at QB. The team will pick it up and Batch will look much better than he did last week.

    There, I said it!!

    Why did we lose the last two games against Baltimore and Cleveland? Everyone points to feeble, geriatric backup QB's Byron Leftwich and Charlie Batch first, but the fact is that Byron and Charlie threw for more yards in the last two games than their counterparts Flacco and Weeden (Leftwich and Batch had 199 yards each, whicle Flacco had 164 and Weeden had 158).

    The reason is that we were MINUS TEN IN TURNOVER DIFFERENTIAL IN THOSE TWO GAMES ALONE (minus 3 vs. Baltimore and minus 7 vs. Cleveland). And, somehow, we still only lost those two games by NINE POINTS COMBINED (lost by 3 to Baltimore and lost by 6 to Cleveland). With horrendous back-to-back turnover differentials like those, most teams would have lost those games by scores of 28-3 and 45-10 (or something like that) rather than 13-10 and 20-14. For how bad we looked in the last two weeks, we were still within one score of victory at the end of each game.

    If we don't shoot ourselves in the foot (perhaps a poor choice of phrase now that Plaxico is back on our team) by turning the ball over again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again, then we would have beaten both of those teams quite handily. If we simply hold onto the ball today, we can beat this flawed Ravens team, even with Batch under center.
