If I had to say who was number one in the blame column, I would have to say the D, and especially the secondary starring Champ Bailey. What a pathetic performance.
On the other hand, you've got to underscore how important the loss of Moreno was. That was a critical loss to the offense.
We lacked edge on both sides of the ball. But its hard to have an edge with a game plan so conservative it made Ron Paul blush. We kept standing pat waiting for the Ravens to fold. We should've been cranking the pressure.
Both coordinators and Foxy own the lions share of the blame.
