What I'm going to do in this space today, at least until John Harbaugh's press conference, is look at a crucial decision made in Monday night's 12-7 loss to Jacksonville Jaguars. Here's the situation: The Ravens just scored their first and only touchdown of the game. There were two minutes and two seconds left in the game. Baltimore had two of their timeouts remaining and the two minute warning. (Sure is a lot of twos huh?) Kicker Billy Cundiff is known for booting the ball out of the end zone for touchbacks, but Harbaugh chooses an onside kick.

  • This seems a bit strange to be discussing things i spoke of concerning this team and coaching staff months ago, it is not something i took lightly back then and it seems to be playing out now just as i said it would, If anyone reads any of my comments and think that back in feb. what i was saying had no merits you should at least read the comments, It was not a question of me disliking this coaching staff for no reason but for what this staff was lacking and could not bring for this team to get to the next level, I was just calling it like it is. I wish i had been wrong for my Ravens sake but not.
