Congrats Bengals.

DeCosta needs to get busy before the trade deadline. Ravens have gotten away with playing too many 'fill ins' with all the injuries, but the Bengals are more talented all around. Not sure what they can do about the poor tackling, esp by their linebackers. Consistently pathetic.

I swear a friend of mine just texted as he’s coming home from Pittsburgh and the traffic is insane out that way too.

No obstructions in either direction and 3 lanes of traffic each way and it’s 20+ miles bumper to bumper. For no reason whatsoever.

It has been like that forever. The stretch from around Fredericksburg to get past DC is brutal, 9 times out of 10. The dudes on the crotch rockets tho.. I have often thought about opening my door. Every once in awhile there is a cop there when you want one.

This, 100% from Ravens 247.

 If this team really considers themselves contenders, then Eric DeCosta needs to move heaven and earth over the bye week to get an actual threat into this backfield. When Lamar Jackson has to play quarterback and running back by himself, you’re starting every game behind the eight ball. The geriatric backfield was fun for a bit, but it isn’t getting it done.

Go get Marlon Mack. This team won't go very far when Lamar has 80% of the rushing yards. He probably won't make it through the season. They need to make a deal for an OT too.

Rt 3 is a why. If ever there was a justified reason for autopilot for all cars it’s from there to DC

Not sure the offense is the priority when you give up 500+ on defense

The D is largely healthy though. They have clearly underachieved, and really have lacked fundamentals, which is uncharacteristic. They have the talent, and I have to think they will figure it out going forward. The OL is a pieced together mess, and Mekari went out with an ankle today. Lamar won't survive with the amount of pressure he is getting plus having to be the feature back. If they need him to be superman every game to win then it wont end well.

I actually feel unusually good after this loss...why?

1) This team will be better served by a loss heading into the bye week than a win. We got 5 straight, now we needed to be knocked down a peg or two so that we don't peak too soon.

2) History! :lol: In 2012, Week 7 (same week)...we got our butts kicked 43-13 by the Texans before we headed into a Week 8 bye! We all know what happened that season ;)

*I see other paralells...In 2012 we were hit hard with injuries that year too (like Suggs tearing his Achilles that summer), the defense looked atrocious (especially in the first half of the season...sheesh), and we had a few miracle wins. (Like winning 9-6 on FGs vs. KC, and barely winning on a DAL missed FG, and of course 4th and 29 later on) So...you just never know!

I never thought they would be 5-2 given the crazy run of injuries right before the season started, and no Stanley and no Boyle(yet). There is still plenty to fix. Defense simply needs to play better. Offense could use a few more healthy contributors.

Roads are uncaving and I can see trees in the distance.

Fail.

Time sensitive! Looked intense earlier. Lots of higher elevation mountain cams out there but they are mostly all plastered with snow or not working.
