Bounce-de-Bounce for the Ravens
Lady Luck got Drunk on Burbon St. and did not make it to the game.
relax. Lets hope this was our let down game.
Today was a prime example of the ball is not bouncing your way, That is always hard to overcome when it so one sided. Think of all the balls bouncing around and where they ended up. My gut told me when Bush let the punt go inside the 5 and it died at the goal line it was going to be the Ravens day for the bounces. That is were luck can win or loss a game. This was one of those games.
We were always a split second off all day. Teams have days like that. Hats of to the Ravens and McNair. They might have fixed the offense. Lets hope so. They play Atlanta before we come to town in 4 weeks. Steve came in reminded us why he is one of the best in the NFL. Peroid. When he is ON like yesterday, he is almost unstopable. So you need to play a perfect game also. We did not.
We left the the game knowing we have alot of work to do in order to win games like this. We came close but just could not climb back into it. I think this was good for the team. despite the turn overs they had there shoots up to the mid way mark of the 4th. Balitomore was not letting up. The team showed alot of guts out there. this could have been alot worse. I come away from this think we have a solid core but pieces are needed still.
We are in a dog fight in the division and the teams we play will not get any easier.
We all knew this day coming. So relax.

Going 2-0 aginst the Falcons ans Tampa will be big by the end of the season when we face Carolina in the last game. I still have faith we will be in the mix at the end.
I think Tampa better be worried because the Saints should come in with a big chip on the shoulders.
One Game at a time.
