    The ravens were on short rest when they played Cincinnati, a back to back road division game after playing Pittsburgh (and they made up for the Cleveland loss by beating Tennessee on the road going 2-1 in that span). Where Baltimore hit a snag was playing Drew Brees looking to beat every team and then going on the road to Charlotte and playing a rematch with Pittsburgh. Record is all about circumstances mostly.

    you are the king of make excuses for everything that has happened in the past 10 years. By your use of logic. They shouldnt even play the games. everything has built in excuses. Literally you jsut stated record is about circumstances, not skill or how good a team is

    As a ravens fan I’ll just say a lot of us are not happy and don’t think Jackson is anywhere close to the answer long term.

    I pointed this out in another thread (or maybe it was this one). He's not that far off. They were losing with Flacco, but he sucks. That said, 6 of Jackson's 7 final regular season starts were against 6 of the bottom 7 defenses in the league. If you flipped the schedule around, I don't think their record changes that dramatically.

    The only bad loss they had with Flacco was against Cincinnati. He split the series with Pittsburgh, lost a close game at Cleveland, lost by 1 against the best team in the NFL (NO), and lost at Carolina when they were still fully healthy (before they started losing everyone to injury, they were a 6-2 team).

    Jackson came in and his first game was a narrow victory against the Bengals at home. Then he got to face Oakland, TB, Atlanta, and KC in his next 4 starts, all of whom are near the bottom of the league in total defense. What Jackson did was blown way out of proportion. There's no way he comes in and wins against a full 16 game schedule playing like he did.

    He’s far off. He’ll tell u that the Steelers couldn’t win because they lost to the chargers outdoors in 2098 and then won indoors on the road in 2012 therefore in 2018 they were bound to lose

    You know it's easy to root for the kid. You WANT to root for him. He does bring a level of excitement that's hard to match. But as mentioned by so many others, the league will eventually figure him out with respect to running the football. And I just don't see him ever developing into a consistent passer. Who knows, maybe he will. I just wouldn't bet any retirement funds on it ever happening.

    Same with Josh Allen, honestly. In fact, I'd argue Jackson is further along passing right now. I wouldn't be shocked at all if both teams are looking for QBs in the 2021 draft.

    They already have, he can't throw, and when he tries to talk, I want somebody to wet his lips and stick him to the wall.....He embarrasses me as a Ravens fan to say this little wind up spinning top is the future of the team and let Joe walk....
    But I'm still hopeful that Harboob will take another deal and get out of town....:hope:

    Joe still gives us a better chance to win than Buckwheat and I think Harbs blew it once again by not playing him in that playoff game and throughout....Joe is at his best in the post season and has proven that...
    But hard headed Harbs thinks he's on to something, I guess he didn't pay attention what happened to the team he is copying....

    Actually buckwheat proves he gives you a better chance. Joe was great one post season. Elsewhere very very blah regular and post season. Let’s not kid ourselves . Joe has 4 historic game and crashed. Other than that mini run he’s never been very good.

    Man you're either blind or stupid....We've been through this before, why don't you do a little research and see that Joe was in the playoffs from yr 1 and played from game 1 to the AFCCG, never went 1 and done and could make all the throws from the get go....How you can say this rubber band arm kid gives them a better chance to win than Joe is preposterous....

    Same way U say joe is good check the numbers bud, they aren’t good. D carried him.

    You just like the d carried Lamar. Check his career numbers vs his peers he’s down there dude , ur just blinded by homerism

    Btw Kyle holler could make
    All the throws too, a lot of guys have good arms. Josh Allen does right now don’t mean shit

    Who has won three road games in a row other than LA in recent memory? Any that have...what were the opponents combined records? Most road teams lose on short rest, especially that early in the season. You realize Cinci started 4-1? They may not be a good team but they can be competitive against most teams in their place.
