Two returns this weekend, the heat and Todd Heap were both back!!! Yesterday was only a high of 81* but the stadium was baking. The Ravens offense was also heating it up as ‘Lets Go’ Flacco was firing all over the field. Cam brought the O with some new angles, not so much the trick plays of last year, but more impressively some spread offense with 5 receivers and an empty backfield, and a no huddle offense that had the Chiefs on their heels.

Mason, thanks for not retiring buddy! Two toe taps that were just outside, one for a TD and one for big yardage, were the difference between Mason having a very good game and a great game. Clayton was active and showing the speed he’s supposed to bring to the offense Kelley Washington looks solid as a 3rd option receiver, just a little less showmanship on routine plays please. The big aerial return was the continued presents of Heap on the field and in the stats. Maybe it’s due to in injury free preseason and getting more practice reps, maybe it’s Joe’s emergence as a more well rounded QB, maybe it’s Cam opening up the center of the field as an acceptable throwing zone this year, it’s probably all three, but what ever the reason Heap is back and looking like his old self. Joe was still hanging him out a little, just like those old QB’s used to, so I hope he starts hitting him more in stride as to keep Heap off the ice packs.

Baltimore fans have always giving Heap the love. Even the ‘dark’ years where he really wasn’t earning it. We have a soft spot for him due to all those circus catches he made for us early on when he was one of the few bright spots on an anemic offense. I liked what I saw yesterday, good hands, sitting down in the empty spot in the zone defense, and fighting for and getting the YAC.

The three headed monster is alive and well. Good news for the Ravens, not so much if your trying to find a fantasy RB starter that bleeds purple and black. Please, in goal line situations and 3rd and short, bring in the Jumbo Package and run the Pain Train McClain down our opponents throats! I’m looking forward to a game in which having secured a big lead we just pound McClain into the defense for an entire 4th quarter.

Stover is your phone ringing yet? Most of the fans in the stands had your number on speed dial after that shank of a kick.

Blocked punt!! The only blocked punts in our stadium should be performed by the illustrious Mr. Reed.

Area of concern, CBs…… didn’t like the Chiefs marching down the length of the field against our D for their biggest drive, late in the game, and making this one closer than it should have been. Has sitting at home, watching games on tv straighted McAlister out? Chris, say sorry to coach, coach give him a chance, Chris, don’t ask for a bucket of money. Are you telling me that even if he’s lost a step for corner he would be a money nickel or dime back?

Ravens-Bengals Preview
The Baltimore Ravens’ physical defense was at its bone-jarring best in a successful season opener, ruining the home debut of a 2009 AFC playoff team. There’s not much different about Baltimore’s blueprint for Week 2. A short week could make for a stiffer challenge Sunday in Cincinnati, along with a Bengals team that swept the division rival Ravens last year and is eager for redemption…

Question by Ravens All da way baby: Baltimore ravens?
Do you think the baltimore ravens will go to the playoffs next season?

Answers:

Answer by tranman
i like the Ravens and think if they can step it up they will make the playoffs next season

Answer by tfoley5000
NO, it doesn’t matter they hire they will miss the playoffs.

Answer by 5-Time Super Bowl Champions
It all depends on their off season moves such as head coach, quarterback and change of players on the defensive side.

Question by 10100: Baltimore Ravens?
I am mad about Brian Billick getting fired, but I still like the Ravens even though the greatest coach of all time is not there anymore. I want to know if there are any other Ravens fans out there that are upset about Brian Billick getting fired.

Answers:

Answer by freak_athlete
umm, no

Answer by jim c
i think they made a mistake firing him what they needed to do was find a gem of an offensive coordinator to take over the offense and get it up to par

Answer by fourofsix2003
Billick was bringing the team down,he lost the respect of the players.he made alot of bad decisions and what really did him in was he didnt stand up to ray”i didnt kill that man” lewis,when the future ex con went off on billick for a strange offensive play call.Lewis needs to stfu and worry about his own ass,hes getting slow,and old.

    Draft Malcolm Kelly WR and let Troy Smith try a chance in the NFL cause the last game he did pretty good and had no INT and the defense have to stop being overrated

  2. wondermom says:

    It’s highly unusual for a first year coach to land in the play-offs the first year.
    The Coach and the team have to build a bond. What your seeing with the Chargers is the exception to the rule not the rule.

  3. Mike S says:

    no, the ravens have a three way quarterback controversy with McNair, Boller, and Smith, all of whom could possibly be starting next year, and all of who are considered below average quarterbacks in the league right now. I would also say that the Ravens are the worst team in their division, after witnessing the dolphins hand them a loss. A loss like that is hard to bounce back from.

  4. jerdoll2001 says:

    No. They have no quarterback, they have no receivers, they have no coach. Their defense can’t score all their points!

  5. Mulvi says:

    If they find an offense on the sidewalk next to a new shinny quarter.

  6. Gary says:

    If they were in the NFC, then yes…but the AFC is way too competitive right now, so no.

  7. Mark Anthony says:

    I am not a Ravens fan however I agree with him getting fired. Its not about his knowledge, its about the players losing respect of his leadership abilities. For some reason he lost it and when that happens the teams needs to get a new Coach.

  8. armandingo71 says:

    Not me

  9. Phenom says:

    yeah he shouldn’t been fired but somebody had to take the blame in the ravens organization Billick will be head coach again somewhere.

  10. John M says:

    Easy on the greatest coach of all time. Billick did an awesome job in 98 with the Vikes offense. That is his only claim to fame other than the one Super Bowl. And one Super Bowl win doesnt prove anything to me. (Barry Switzer etc) That is ridiculous. “Greatest Coach of All Time” HA

  11. jrhufford says:

    @IndyOwns haha funny to say that watch some colts videos. ohh yea it would consist of their gay ass offense and pooor tackling. i want to see how big a colts fan u are after manning retires. he’ll be done soon because hes a sell out

  26. charger619c says:

    Ravens and Jets are the two most overrated teams in the nfl this season. I can’t wait until they either miss the playoffs or are one and done
