I told you about the Fool [in the gold] on the Hill... Apparently John Harbaugh saw it too. He called the Ravens' performance in the first half of their 27-23 win over the Falcons Thursday night in PS Game 2 "the worst half he has ever witnessed" from the Ravens. Couldn't stop the run in the first half. Couldn't get anything going on offense other than a one-shot crossing pattern to Torrey Smith from Joe Flacco that went for 77 yards. The Ravens' own running game produced only 13 yards in the first half. This is no way to run an airline... But to be fair, the Falcons showed some great defensive looks on their 1's unit. Even the veteran corner Asante Samuel did what he has done best his entire career---make plays. He picked off a Flacco deflection and sealed the first half for the Falcons, 20-7. Obviously the Ravens to a man believe that first half was an anomaly and they will clean things up after reviewing the game tape. But you can pardon the thousands of Ravens
