It had been nearly two years since the Baltimore Ravens lost at home, and the sensation of defeat was particularly intolerable because it came against the hated Pittsburgh Steelers. Third-string quarterback Charlie Batch moved the Steelers 61 yards in the closing minutes before Shaun Suisham kicked a 42-yard field goal as time expired, capping an unlikely comeback that gave Pittsburgh a 23-20 victory Sunday. The Ravens (9-3) could have clinched a playoff berth and eliminated the Steelers from contention in the AFC North with a win. Instead, Baltimore had its 15-game home winning streak snapped - and also lost to a division opponent for the first time in 13 games. The Ravens led 13-3 in the first half and 20-13 in the fourth quarter. They ended up losing to a slumping team led by a 37-year-old quarterback.

  • While we fans closely follows the antics of this head coach hand shaking problems, no one seems to notice that this foot ball team lacks the directions we fans are paying for, and i will point out my concerns again, Having to watch Ray Rice Carry the ball 12 times the entire game tells me the Hc and Oc have no clue about game time game planning and this has been the norm for these two since they arrived here, We all have the script to this game answers from this coaching staff, we will worry about this in 2013, Well you better worry in 2012 Charm City because no one seems to be able to see how this can't and haven't worked in favor of this team, plain and simple this team have what all the rest of the league wants but somehow the power playing of this coaching staff refuse to use it, those one liners from the coach like earlier in the year when asked whether this was a power running team and he responds he didn't think of this as a running team when you have #27 and #44 you still don't think so huh? Like my post from past seasons i have not changed my mind about the state of this coaching staff and it seems to verify what i have been saying that before we hand this stink bomb to Joe Flacco lets shine the spot light where it shows just who should share and bear responsibility for this really good group of players failures? if you are willing to ask these questions you are now thinking about the future of the Ravens in Charm City. Just Come On Man!
