True, but I'll always take an ugly win over a pretty loss.

So will I. But this Team has some serious issues and is damned hard to watch.

Did you count his time on that sack?  Less than 2 seconds.

Did he call the off tackle run on first down (which you wanted them to do more of).  No.

There is no way to spin Jackson's performance into anything other than a disappointment. It's not all on him of course, as one of the interceptions wasn't his fault, and the OLINE was bad at pass blocking. Saying that, he's doing too much dancing in the pocket. Either he needs to take off and move out of the pocket, or throw the ball, but these twists and turns in the pocket is not going to work in the NFL. 

He's a smart guy though so I think he will learn from this. 

I'm also very concerned over the Ravens WRs, especially if Brown is beat up. Did Boykin play? Either they can't get open of Jackson is struggling to find them.

I'd like to see the Ravens use more middle screen passes with their backs if the WR are going to be non existent.

You can at least make the argument that the offense was going against a good defense, but the Ravens defense is just bad. There is no pass rush, they can't tackle, and they can't cover running backs and tight ends at all. The Jefferson injury could end up being an upgrade for the secondary but I doubt it makes much difference with no pass rush. 

Oh, and Harbaugh is terrible. It looks like he isn't going to challenge and PI calls regardless of how blatant it is, but then he wastes a challenge on a call that had no chance of getting overturned. The Jackson INT just before the half was a terrible decision by Jackson but after the sack in the previous play why are we even throwing there?

Harbaugh just said  the PI non-call on the interception is part of the turnover review.  That is why he didn't throw the flag. 

Also, Jefferson done for the year.  ACL.

Tony Jefferson is done for the season with a knee injury. Looks to be torn ACL at a minimum.

Not sure if this will be an upgrade, but Jefferson had been pretty bad this year. Hate to see an injury though.

I rewinded that Tucker field goal about 8 times.  The looks on the Steelers fans faces in the background as it looked like he missed and then it knuckled in.....hilarious

Jefferson injury may lead to more pressure in acquiring Ramsey. He's a lockdown corner, but also has significant history playing safety.

as far as jackson goes, passing game was obviously poor today. oline didn't give any time, and while we can't really see the coverage given the way the game is filmed, i have to assume that our receivers weren't getting open or providing opportunities.

brown was hobbled by his ankle, andrews shoulder, and then the rest of the guys haven't been reliable threats all season, why would that change today? to be honest, i think that there is one positive, and that's hurst getting four catches. the only way he won't be a bust is if those catch totals become consistent.

On the topic of the Andrews PI, Harbaugh said in the post-game that he couldn't challenge it because the change-in-possession was already under review and that PI would be included in that review.

I rarely post here because I'm not a Ravens fan, but you all might want to check the alternate reality of what actually happened today ........ ESPN is claiming that the Ravens, who have not won a game yet this season, were crushed by the Patriots this afternoon.

I know some people are uncomfortable with the Washington team's nickname, but that's taking it a little too far.

    • I like Dave Johnson on the postgame and on the MASN baseball show. He has always given good insights on the failures (and successes) of Orioles pitchers, especially Gausman when he was an Oriole. 
    • I don't think Tekulve was top 5 ugly, he just had those rad glasses that he wore everywhere.  Manny Sanguillen was ugly.  Don Mossi might be the missing link.  Otis Nixon.  Willie McGee.  
    • Since we're bored I'll share another story. The year was 2005 and I had just returned from spending a year in Afghanistan and was happy to be back in Hawaii with my family. Obviously I had not played in over a year when I found a local men's 18 and over team looking for players.  With the itch to play again and a desire to try out my new "PRK fixed" eyes, I came out of "forced retirement/military service" at 35 years old. The team ended up being pretty good even though we ran out of pitching occasionally and I had to pitch, which is never a good long term fix for any team (haha).  I mostly played outfield and some second base for this team and we ended up in the playoffs.  Even though I was one of the older players on the team, I typically hit leadoff and was having a pretty good year hitting well over .350 with an on base percentage close to .500 (I walked a lot and rarely struck out).  Let's fast forward to the semi-finals game with the winner getting a chance to play under the lights in downtown Honolulu on this beautifully manicured field. Down by two in the bottom of the 6th inning (we played 7 inning games), with runners on 1st and 2nd and two outs, I drive the ball to right center, knocking in both runs to tie the game while ending up on 3rd after a play at the plate. Feeling fast, and perhaps all hyped up after my game tying triple, I noticed the left-handed pitcher was not paying any attention to me at third. I kept faking like I would steal home and would have to stop myself because I realize I was almost half way down the line and no one on that team was saying anything about me.  So that's when I decided I was going to do it. I had tried to steal home since Pony League ball when  was 15 years old, but dammit, there I went. Head down, arms pumping, I knew I was going to steal home and we would be ahead with just an inning to go. With about 15 feet to go and before I could start to slide, I saw the catcher stand up and get ready to catch the ball. We had a no contact rule so as he caught the ball, I decided to try and reach my foot out to touch the plate before he could tag me.  Unfortunately for me, I was running at full speed and when my foot landed on the side of the plate and in the dirt, my cleats caught and my momentum twisted my knee as I fell face first into the dirt. As I fell, I felt one of the worse pains in my life as it felt like someone had just chopped my leg of at the knee. My teammates eventually helped my off the field and we actually ended up winning the next inning anyways so we were heading to the Championship. Even though it was my right knee, I drove myself home, but made the mistake of not going straight to the hospital. After an awful painful night on the couch (so I could keep my leg straight and on ice) my wife had to enlist me neighbor to help me to the car so she could take me to the Hospital. My leg was so swollen they couldn't do an MRI, but the doctor was pretty sure I tore my meniscus and most likely my ACL. He gave me some pain meds, and told me to come back for an MRI in a week when the swelling went down. So here's my dilemma. We had this championship game to play and I wanted to play. The championship game was two days later and I couldn't put any weight on my leg so it looked bleak. Luckily for me, two days later I was able to walk on it and I even tried to jog in a straight line which I did with tolerable pain levels. I show up and convince the manager I can DH and then will use a courtesy runner if I get on. He kinda looked at me like I was nuts, but I showed him that I could run at about 1/3 speed down the line and took batting practice to show that I could hit on it. I just hid the excruciating pain when I pushed off my back leg (haha). In my mind, my knee was already torn up so screw it, it was just pain. I think I took 1600MG of Motrin to try and dull it some. So sure enough, he lets me play and I end up going 2-for-3 with a walk and two RBIs, and even convinced him to let me play an inning at 2B after the fill in made two dumb plays that cost us runs. That was really stupid because I tried to go back and catch a popup and thought someone had shot me in the knee again.  We end up winning the championship by a run, and a few months later I was in the operating room getting my Meniscus and ACL fixed. It was also the last time I even even thought about stealing home again!
    • I don't care what anyone says, I like him on the postgame broadcasts.  He's a hardass but for good reason...he had a hard road to the majors and it wasn't easy for him when he got there.   https://www.mlb.com/news/dave-johnson-unique-orioles-hero    
    • I was there, too.  Not quite 10 years old.  My dad wanted to leave early, so we did.  He clearly had no idea what was going on. 🙄
    • Just wait for 50 or 100 years from now when the world's population grown rate is negative.  If your business model is grow every year or quit you may be in for a bit of a shock.
