    If there was doubt after the Miami loss, let there be no doubt, the Ravens are not competitive.

    3-1 and now we are without a starting or back up QB. How long will this last??

    After the first loss the entire fanbase will want the coaching staff fired.

    John Harbaugh needs to warm up his "They are who we thought they were, and we let them off the hook!" speech.

    Just read someone say that the NFL concussion protocol would have let JFK back in the parade.

    How many times will the Ravens not account for the reality of the situation in their decision to go for it on 4th down. Statistically, perhaps its valid, but statistics are an escape from the reality of local information and observations. The Ravens should have tied the game with 33 seconds to go with a field goal. Instead threw an interception in the end zone and permitted the Bills to win on a field goal. Lamar seems to prefer lucky than good.

    My neighbor who watched the game said there was a pass interference committed by the Bills before the first half they refused to call which was a fourteen point swing in the game. He said in the second half they called a roughing the passer on the Ravens which wasn't and it allowed the Bills to score seven points. As much of a glory seeker as Harbaugh is those two calls probably cost the Ravens the game. I think 15-2 still gets you into the play offs.

    It's so odd how literally every Ravens loss is due to bad officiating.

    Yeah, yeah, yeah that's fine and dandy, Scott Bails... but, we all need to know what your neighbor's opinion is about this.

    Nothing can be done about the randomness of interference calls. Late in the game was a missed interference call, but nothing is worse than the Ravens shooting themselves in the ass. The first thing you see on fake sports ESPN is that Lamar threw an interception. However, on that 4th and one at the ~6 yard line with delay game penalty, was that a failure to score was an end to the Ravens, and the interception is not the issue. It’s the fact they had a 99.9999999 percent of taking the lead with a field goal and forcing the Bills to tie the game with a field goal, or win with a touchdown.

    Harbaugh says analytically you should go for a first down on 4th and one. The people who told him that are freaking people with a high school statistics class. If you go to grad school in engineering or applied math, you learn about decision theory and one method makes a decision such to minimize risk or maximize opportunity. In that case, probability times cost = risk is minimized. Cost is the losing of the game.

    If it wasn't for bad officiating the Eagles would be 0-3 in Super Bowls.

    Speaking of concussions, that protester that ran on the field on MNF should be waking up about now.

    I have to agree with Ed's neighbor. The 4th quarter roughing the passer call was total B.S. However, they DID have 59 and a half minutes besides that to win the game.

    Jerjo, that series of events was hysterical!

    I can't think of a relatively close game I've seen in the past 15 years that didn't have at least two bad calls. It's the nature of the game and why blame the officials if your team failed in another way to win the game. No team plays a perfect game.

    This one non call stole the game away from the Saints and kept them out of the super bowl, but by your analogy it was still the Saints fault for losing the game.
