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?)

I wish i had been wrong for my Ravens sake but not.
