We'll be ready. McDaniels said they were outcoached today and that he learned more about his players and staff in one loss than he's learned in six wins. I like that.

No, this game was the game we found out if the broncos were for real! The pundits said that all week... and last week... and the week before... and the week before...

Was I the only one asking "WTF?" after the first quarter?
I felt like I was watching a High School game with all that crappy looking "man coverage" our D was running, sure it worked and held Flacco, but as he worked out his adjustments we seemed flat footed.
Then Orton pump-faked at Moreno in the flat to buy more time, I'm watching in screaming "Noooooooooooooooo!" like its a bad dream...

Well, we had to lose one sometime, and it's not terrible to lose to Baltimore.

You see that play called a no catch 9 times out of 10, every week. It didn't look any different then Fitzgerald's play today and that was ruled an incomplete pass. You have to have 2 feet down and demonstrate a football move. If Moreno demonstrated a football move I sure didn't see it. That's why it's so damn hard to win every single game. Sooner or later, you will get the calls that don't go your way. Same thing with the fumble they had that seemed to bounce right into the Broncos laps and they did not recover it. Bad bounces and bad calls can ruin your day fast.

Not worried about the Ref's call, it's the fact that Orton DELAYED the pass with the fake, it brings up the LB's and Ed Reed (as we all saw) ... effectively he told the ENTIRE Ravens D what the play was so they could get a running start!
The good thing is that from what I have seen of Orton, lesson learned, he WON'T do it again!
I was more concerned about where Brandon was during the game, I expected him to make more plays... ?

Brandon was still on the bye week ... running lazy routes, dropping easy passes one of which he simply flinched and dropped a sure critical first down ... way before Ed Reed got there ...when we had just scored our touchdown and the Ravens had come back and made it 16-7 with the FG and we needed a TD big time to make it a tight game to the finish.

That play, their ridiculous kick off return by a guy they considered not even starting as the kick returner and Elvis making those two critical early jumps on 3rd and 13 then 3rd and 8 ( the last one drawing Darrell Reid or someone off sides to give them life twice on their long scoring drive to make it 23 -7, all together told the whole story.

Bottom line the Ravens wanted it more and showed it all game. I still think we can beat them at home with this experience behind us, coming out with conviction and a better game plan offensively that opens up the passing game more.

Like one of the Ravens players said, they played the whole game like their hair was on fire. I don't see them doing that every game.

Me too. As much as I hate to say it, losing can sometimes be a blessing in disguise. If McD truly feels that way about his team (that he learned more in a loss than he did in 6 wins), then I think we will be okay. With SD only 2.5 games behind us, we need to win on Monday night. We will get an extra day to rest, prepare and get fired up.

The Broncos need to bring it next week against the Steelers.

I am glad they lost that game the way they did. If they lost a squeaker on the road, that would have been more demoralizing. This will be a wake up call, hoefully.

To me, it looks like a lot of our key players were still on their bye week, while the Ravens were just itching to kick our a**es. Balty is still my super bowl pick and have been since week 1. They should have been 6-0 coming into this game if not for several unlucky twists of fate.

We lost the battle at the POA today many times. We couldn't run up the A-gap, and the center and guards really struggled with Balty's three man front, which is the biggest and most physical in the league. There is no doubt that McD will look to add a top flight center or guard in the draft next year, which can be had in the later rounds.

Orton really tightened up after getting hit a few times. That does not bode well for our future.

Biggest concern I had was the pressure we allowed up the middle - Ben Hamilton got thrown around, run around and beaten up pretty badly. It's hard to get anything going on offense when the other team gets penetration like that.

Second biggest concern was ST. Once again, we plummet towards the bottom. This has plague Denver for several years now. What is the darned problem?

Oh well. We'll see how the team responds now.

I thought the NFL was going to hand them the win before the game.

Now I understand.

We were outplayed plain and simple. No reason to slit your wrists people.

As much as it pains me the Ravens took it to us. Failing/losing isn't a bad thing if we learn from it. Such is life.

My ole man always taught me "If you start wrong you end wrong". We couldn't have had a rougher start and from the first snap it was pretty apparent the Ravens were out for blood.

*Remember* Most of you didn't even think we could win 6 games. We're still there midway thru the season.

They played one hell of a game.
