    However, after his one disasterous season as head coach of the Dolphins, he's been O.C. of the Ravens since then (you'd think he would have realized after several seasons that Ray Rice is a weapon and everyone else on offensive pretty much sucks, right?). His mind-boggling stupid play calling in Baltimore made Bruce Arians look like Bill Walsh. That's one gripe that annoying Ravens fans often had on-the-money.
    Yeah, I saw that many of them were upset, rightfully so, that Ray Rice did not have a carry in the fourth quarter against Pittsburgh. I get that you want to avoid running Rice until the wheels come off, but he is a heck of a weapon who Cameron does not use enough.

    he is a joke as a HC, but a very good OC.
    I agree. I actually wanted him here, had they fired him sooner. Happy with Haley, though.

    I don't want to see them ride Rice. Unless they make the wheels fall off quicker.

    This is somewhat puzzling. I guess you have to go with Jon H. needing to throw the sacrificial lamb out there to deflect blame. I do have to say one thing: If I were a Rat's fan, I would be very angry over how many games, in the 2nd half, Cam had Flacco throw tons of passes - and he seemed to go no where and not make first downs - instead of keeping the play mix more balanced giving Rice touches. As a Steeler fan, that trend pleased me, but that is one area where Cam just seemed to create brain farts on a steady basis. Flacco seemed to go from accurate deep throws when the rushing game is going, to all-of-a-sudden beyond inconsistent when they go into a heavy pass dose on play calling. Yes, it did seem the team was desirous of Flacco proving to be a top tier QB, but is he? He shows flashes but he also consistently shows that when they go pass heavy, he starts to press and starts to panic and throw bad balls.

    Regardless, it's probably good news for us that they made such an extreme move so late in the season.

    I doubt it impacts us at all. Baltimore is by far the weakest of the 4 AFC division leaders, so they will likely get the 4th seed. If we manage to sneak in to the playoffs as a wildcard, it will be as the #6 seed, since we aren't passing Indy at this point. Therefore, if we got in, we'd be playing in Denver or New England (whichever one of those two doesn't get the first round bye), while Baltimore would host the Colts in the reverse Irsay Mayflower Moving Truck Bowl. If there was one team I wouldn't mind facing in the playoffs, it would be Baltimore, but that's quite unlikely. I think our victory over the Ravens last week was not necessarily a reflection of strength in our team, but more of an exposure of Baltimore as a fraud.

    I thought this was going to say he got two broken legs because he got thrown under a bus.
