The Ravens had control of the AFC in their fingertips and on Sunday night against the Chargers they proved that they aren’t as strong as everyone had previously thought. Going into the game Baltimore was being touted as one of the best teams in the league and one that was destined for a home playoff game. Monday morning they are a team that has played well at home and will likely be playing their postseason games on the road.
Poor coaching, a failure to adjust whatever game plan they set up and an abysmal night by Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco killed the Ravens chances in San Diego. In front of a national audience, the Ravens lost their second worst game under John Harbaugh since falling by 28 to the Colts in 2008.
Here are my thoughts on the ugly 34-14 loss in San Diego.
Say what you will about the success of John Harbaugh and the Ravens, but as it stands Brian Billick is still the most successful head coach in Baltimore football history. After last night I have to question this staff’s ability to adjust to their weaknesses and their ability to play outside Baltimore.
