Exactly.. I would much rather lose a game like that than lose by a last second field goal. I think we needed a game like this as a wake-up call and it's not like we got dominated by a bad team. The Ravens have been a team just waiting for some symblance of an offense to take them to the next level and although they don't have a great offense by any means, they don't need to do much more than what they did to get lots of W's.The only solace I can take in this game is that we didn't lose after playing well, we lost because we played like crap. The mistakes made have not been happening during the first part of the season, and are very correctable.
I take it as just one of those days/games. It happens in every sport.... we played bad, but even when we tried to get anything going the tips/bounces not only didn't go our way, but went perfect for the Ravens.I don't know. The loss to the Panthers was a lot easier for me to swallow than this one and I can't stand losing to the Panthers...
I agree here. I still saw some of the good characterics in this game that I I saw in the first 6, but they were shadowed by the mistakes. I do think, however, that we were bullied by a huge O-line, and big running back on the downside of his career. JMHO.Neither the Panthers nor the Ravens losses bothered me nearly as much as if we'd just been dominated by the opposition. We were very competitive in the Panthers' game; we basically handed yesterday's game over to the Ravens, by virtue of the countless penalties and turnovers.
This is not to say that the Ravens didn't bring their "A-game", but rather that we left ours laying around somewhere in Week 6.
