    The guy had a bad game, no two ways about it. However, go talk to Joe Flacco if you want to see what a REALLY bad game looks like. The point is, everyone has them and if we choose to forget the good and only look at the bad, then we aren't being honest. Does anyone remember some of those game saving throws he made in the first three games? There are damn few QB's that can make some of those throws. Let's get over it and move on. If we start having more of these games and fewer of the first three, then we have a problem.

    Flacco threw 5 picks yesterday, and he won the SB last year. And it was by far the worst game I have ever seen him play. He had a chance to take the lead at the end of the game and was unable to make the last drive.

    The Ravens are 2-2 now, but they are still in the hunt. Just like the Bears, at 3-1.

    Jay played terrible and he admitted it. Nothing can be done about that loss other than to learn from it.

    Time to look at the Saints. They get a short week (they play tonight) and we have them at home (much better than playing them in the dome).

    Exactly. Cutler has shown remarkable maturity this year. In the past, under Lovie he would be sulking. He also takes responsibility for his part. Don't worry guys, we'll bounce back.

    Should we also look at Flacco's first 5 years in the league compared to Cutlers? Or do you just want to compare last night b/c it fits your storyline?

    from wiki:
    In his rookie year, Flacco started all 16 regular season games, and by leading the Ravens to two road wins in the 2008–09 NFL Playoffs, he became both the eighth rookie quarterback in NFL history to start a playoff game and the first rookie quarterback in league history to win two of them. In his second season, he improved his numbers, setting single season franchise records for completion percentage (63.1) and quarterback rating (88.9), and in his third season he became first all-time in Ravens history for passing yards (10,206) and passing touchdowns (60). Flacco has set consecutive NFL records for most starts by a quarterback in each of his five seasons,[1] bringing his team to the playoffs and winning at least one postseason game in each of those years. With Flacco as Baltimore's starting quarterback, the Ravens have won the AFC North twice, appeared in three AFC Championship Games, and won Super Bowl XLVII. Flacco was named Super Bowl XLVII's MVP, concluding a postseason run in which he tied Joe Montana's single postseason record for touchdown passes (11) without an interception.


    Wanna see what Cutlers post season looks like? As bad as Flacco was last game, or is during the reg season of last year, same w/Eli, their post seasons and SB/s are what matter. If/when Cutler has those, he'll get the slack they'll get b/c he'll have earned that slack.

    I guess I was comparing Flacco and Cutler, but I really did not mean to. My point was supposed to be that every QB has a bad day.

    Believe it or not Flacco is not highly reguarded in the Baltimore Area. Most people here consider him just an average QB that has no Passion or has a lack of leadership. It is crazy that with all his accomplishments, he rarely gets praise on the talk radio or local press.

    It sounds a lot like the Chicago Fan base. I never give a pass to a QB that is playing poorly, but I am also happy to have a talented QB, that has the ability to win games. Cutler is not a miracle man but I still believe in him.

    You know, I was thinking about this during the game. He was so off on everything, I thought maybe his diabetes was not properly under control. They didn't show him on the sidelines doing anything special, so I doubt that was it. but who knows?
