Joe?

The Ravens won which is the good thing ... but .... What is wrong with Joe? I know the Ravens OL is a mess and their WRs aren't very good .... but ..... he looks terrible including missing basic throws badly and bad body language. It looks like he has lost some confidence and the coaching staff has lost some confidence in him considering the abysmal play calling. Last night Macklin, Wallace and Woodhead played so that is at least a respectable crew. With their D and special teams they don't need much O, but they need more than they are getting. If they can crank it up on O just a little, they can make the playoffs and maybe do a little damage. It is just hard to watch sometimes, now really most of the time. But a win is a win.

Its indeed hard to watch his play and all the critiscm he is getting. He's definitely playing with less confidence. They are just a mess Offensively and he is part of the reason.

He is part of the reason now when before it was mostly OL and WR.

I think he is playing very hurt. I think he has problems putting weight on his throwing foot which might explain a season of constantly throwing high. If health is not the reason, look for the Ravens to take a first round
QB. I hear they like the QB from
Louisville. Joe is signed thru 2019 so cutting him will be expensive.

Joe was hurt to start the season, and everyone knew it. Why the coaches and GM didn't bring in someone else, I have no idea.

Basically, malpractice by Harbaugh and Newsome. After all, this is the NFL, isn't it?

Hurt or not, he's not playing with any confidence and looks lost at times. I keep waiting for him to have that Bounce back game but it's Game 12 coming up. Maybe it's this weekend.

The Ravens O is hard to watch. Joe is constantly just dumping the ball off to the back and seldom throws downfield. In his defense he has 1.5 seconds to throw the ball every time he drops back to pass. The O line is horrible and gets abused every week. He's gotta be shell shocked. When is the last time he's had decent WR"s that can get open? Plus he's had a new O Coordinator just about every single year. The Ravens philosophy has always been defense and have never done much to help Joe except the year they won the Super Bowl getting Bolden.

Solid day today. 23-26 (63.9%), 269 yards, 2 TDs, O INTs.

3 wins in a row, 7-5...and with a schedule at Pittsburgh, at Cleveland, home against the Colts, and Bengals left, Baltimore could finish 10-6 and make the playoffs.

One can hope.

Went to the game. Ravens Offense actually won a game for the Ravens. Good game by Joe. Looks like they lost CB Jimmy Smith for the season though.

Good game for Joe and the Ravens against the defenssless Lions. At 7-5 there is now a reasonable shot at the playoffs. Losing Smith will hurt though.

What a shame for Joe and the Ravens last night. The D collapses in the 4Q and gives up 500 passing yards to Ben and Joe and the offense shiz the bed the last couple of possessions with Joe having a terrible looking fumble to end the game. That Pittsburg was still throwing when they could have been running and running out the clock prior to kicking the winning fg tells us all they had no fear to leave Joe and the Ravens 40+ seconds and a time out to get a winning fg. I had zero confidence either. But that's what Joe and the Ravens are.

All Flacco needed to do was to get a stinking first down and they win the game. He didn't and Ben did.

I cannot put this game on Flacco. THey scored 38 points on the road. Your defense has to do something at some point.
