THE GOOD, BAD, UGLY & THE MEGAN FOX: Flacco's play like a fart in a phone booth






The Baltimore Ravens won’t admit it but they are so hard up to have a franchise quarterback that as an organization they are willing to look away and away and away from the inefficiencies of Joe Flacco. They will stick their heads so deep in the dirt hoping that when they shrug off the topsoil and raise their collective head that Flacco actually has a game face of confidence.

Dive back in the dirt – Flacco looks like he’s seen a ghost.

Who you gonna call?

The guy just doesn’t have “it”. After 3 plus seasons isn’t it painfully obvious that he will never be a Top 10 QB in the NFL?

When all is right in the world and the Ravens have a lead, are at home and they are running the ball ok, Flacco can do some damage. But when things unfold as they did in Jacksonville, Flacco is like a ship without a rudder. He’s lost in space and possesses the poise of Rainman when he’s about to miss the next episode of “Wheel of Fortune” or heaven forbid, he farts in a phone booth.

Maybe that should be the name of the team’s offense – Farts in a Phone Booth.

I mean why not, they stink!

How many Super Bowl caliber teams have ever said, “Hey remember in Week 7 it took us almost 2 ½ quarters to get a first down against a 1-5 football team?”

Yes that’s a rhetorical question.

Look, there is no redeeming quality, silver lining or something to build on in this Debacle by the Landing. Going forward it will be all about will, determination and desire. I have no doubt that the defense is willing to suck it up and respond to this adversity.

As for the offense, let’s just say they might be Pittsburgh’s favorite unit in the NFL. Is there any doubt that Steelers’ fans were dancing in the street and rejoicing in their new position atop the AFC North as a result of the inept performances of Joe Flacco, Ray Rice & Cam Cameron?

I can’t help but think back to Steve Bisciotti’s comments pertaining to the team’s offensive coordinator -- “we like Cam under fire.”

Really?

Maybe it's time to shoot, aim and FIRE!

Is that an analysis or a rant? No Megan Fox, no good, no bad, no ugly. Reading this was a waste of time. Pull yourself together for the next post please.

Cam has to go, you can't lay all this at Joe's feet. The O Line has been terrible and Cameron has done nothing to change his game plan around that. Flacco looked like a lost puppy last night, but his guys weren't getting open and he had no time to throw. Even the announcers made the point that they needed to change the game plan. How can you go 6 series without a first down and not change things up?? It's on the coaching staff, Head Coach as well. He's the boss, he needs to go to Cameron and tell him to change things up, but everyone just kept moving along like the Jaguars would lay down and lose to us because that's what was supposed to happen. Sorry, Cameron has to go

Is this a blog or a rant? A more in depth analysis would be appreciated. Never miss an opportunity for introspection. The good. Baltimore defense and the TD drive. The bad. Coaching decisions. Abandoning the run. The onside kick. The ugly. Offensive line and QB missed passes.

This qualifies as a rant. I'll analyze when I can bring myself to watch that debacle again on my DVR.

Cameron cannot coach and MUST GO.....NOW! Because of inept coaching, we wasted 5 years for Kyle Boller to become something he was never going to become and are, again, wasting talent because of an inept OC whose offense consitently is out of sync, lacks a sense of urgency, whose receivers cannot get open, etc! Flacco may never be an elite QB, but he showed alot of promise his first two years only to regress under Cameron, the same OC who once shipped Drew Brees off to New Orleans in favor of Eli Manning/Philip Rivers. To those who underestimate the importance of coaching, look at what Pagano has done with Mattison's defense despite a secondary depleted by injuries! Unless or until Cameron GOES, we will never know how good this offense and it's QB can be..........

Fire the O-line coach - they stink!!! Is Grubbs the really glue that makes them respectable?

richieg said...

Put AaronRogers behind this O-line, give him camTHEman's schemes and WR routes, and he will morph into...JoeFlacco!!!

@Ed Bilderback: No, that's the problem. No one wants to lay anything at Joe's feet. Cam's got plenty of problems, but a decent QB will find a way through it. I couldn't believe how long they took getting to the ball on their second to last drive. And no matter what, Cam's not the one missing those passes by a mile. Stop making excuses for the man. He's a piss poor QB.

When will people stop making excuses for Joe's poor play? When the O line has a stellar performance and we still can't get a first down? When Cam calls perfect plays each time for the same result? Ultimately, good QBs find a way past those things. Every team has games where the O line under performs. Winning QBs overcome.

Note to anonymous: Cameron nearly destroyed Drew Brees' career in San Diego, which was resurrected in New Orleans under Sean Payton! Additionally, the OC game plans,schemes, designs pass routes, sets the "protection" and calls the plays, so when an offense is consistently out of sync, slow to the line of scrimmage, is repeatedly called for delay of game or has to burn ill-advised timeouts, receivers can't get separation and the OL gets manhandled, it's not the QB's fault! Flacco showed alot of promise his first two years, but has regressed along with the rest of the offense under Cameron.......

Is the O-line coach worth his weight - I know Cam's staying; but replacing the O-line coach could be an improvement
How about TTaylor in the "wildBird" attack - it could ignite someone's fire and it would not be construed as benching Flacco.
Can RayLewis go both ways, a la ChuckBednarik, at LG maybe? Then he could give his pre-game speech to the O-line too!!!
