Tony Lombardi of Ravens24x7 explored the possible flaw in Baltimore lackluster 2010 season, John Harbaugh’s attitude. In his most recent column, Is there a quitter in John Harbaugh, TL talks about the Ravens expectations for the season versus how Harbaugh addressed them and the role of owner Steve Bisciotti’s role.
Look I’m not making this up. After yesterday’s win Harbaugh said, “We are who we are and we have to move forward with that.”
Am I the only one who thinks that is a cop out?
I can’t believe that the quintessential overachiever Steve Bisciotti, of all people, thinks this is acceptable.
Do you believe for even a nanosecond that Bill Belichick said or thought anything remotely similar to this after the Browns, the lowly stinking Browns pummeled his team in Cleveland 34-14?
“We are who we are”? Please!
One of the problems frequently addressed by the BSR faithful is Joe Flacco’s, lovingly called as Joebot around these parts, ability to audible at the line of scrimmage. The Ravens have been outspoken about keeping Joe looked into a play when he breaks the huddle and as Lombardi points out, offensive coordinator Cam Cameron told the media that “audibling is overrated,” back in October.
Lombardi didn’t quite agree.
Are you buying this garbage Coach Harbaugh! If so I have a really cool 8 Track System you might be interested in.
C’mon coach, think outside of that box. This thing is there for the taking provided you guys stop doing the same failing things over and over expecting different results.
Yesterday, Don Banks of Sports Illustrated took a similar side stating that the Ravens are the most overrated 12-4 team in recent history.
Do you agree with Tony Lombardi or are you happy with the Ravens 12-4 season?
Sounds like more "mindless drivel" to me, eh Sadler?
Hey RGB, or should I call you Mr. Mega millions? Who is this guy, Lombardi? Does he secretly wear black and yellow?
Just read Lombardi's article in its' entirety. Wow, some of the same exact opinions as expressed by two chuckleheads – 2488 and myself – about the state of the team and the fact that they have underachieved, despite their seemingly gaudy record. He posted his article in January 2011 and 2488 and I have preached it since September of 2010. Our view is said to be drivel and white noise, yet it echoes the thoughts of several players on the team – including the quarterback who stated he hopes to be "more a part of the offense", their perennial pro bowl WR, Derrick Mason, their starting full back, a majority of both the local and national media, and the head coach, himself. I know, I know, it's beating a dead horse.
You and 2488 are clowns. Your team predictions are all based on a dislike of Harbs. I've never met fans of a team that wanted their team to lose so badly just so the organization would get rid of the coach. You have the best of both world, if the Ravens do well, you can cheer with the rest of us. If they do poorly, you can say, "I told you so."
Yep, that's why Lombardi posted his article too. He's friends with 2488 and I and his in cahoots with us. We called him and Peter King and Mike Preston and Trent Dilfer…we even called players like LeRon McClain (another old buddy of mine), Derrick Mason (2488 is tight with him) and heck, we even got Harbs in on it putting down the offense.
Yes, Pole, you are too smart. You figured out our conspiracy.
Lombardi, King, Preston, and Dilfer are all entitled to their opinions. The difference is they are paid to provide their opinions because they are sports talking heads. You and 2488 are looking for any cracks in the surface so you can berate the organization because you don't like the coaching staff. The agendas are different between you two the the people you mentioned.
I guess you have to be paid to be critical of the team…I see. I got it.
It's all milk and honey…ignore the man behind the curtain…the emperor's clothes look great. The team is flawless, the coach is flawless, the writers paid to give their opinions all have an agenda. There was a second shooter in Dallas, a second spotter with Neuman when Keith Hernandez and Kramer got hit….I got it. I'm with ya.
