Why This Season Wasn't a Complete Disaster pt1

Let's be real here... The ravens past season want pretty. But what we learned this year will definitely become the base for the future. Fist of all... Offensive line. Other than a half hearted Eugene Monroe pick up, the line was, in a word, disappointing. And for people to start blaming Joe and Ray is completely uneducated. Football starts at the line, and if we aren't able to make a hole for the running back, or protect our $100 million investment,then shame on us. This year wasn't a complete disaster, but we can start on fixing this offensive line... More to come soon. Remember to not blame an individual person when an entire squad of players cannot perform correctly.

edit: now that I have more time, I thought I'd elaborate more on what happened during the season (for the lineman)

I had mentioned earlier how you shouldn't pick out specific players to blame for one teams misfortune (I mean come on, it's a team sport). But what Michael Oher has got away with this season (and the past) is flabbergasting. Michael Oher has been accounted for 47 penalties for 352 total yards in his career since 2009. I hate to ruin his fantasy story that we all know as the blindside but I don't think Mr. Oher is cut for the job. To put it into perspective, the Ravens were only able to achieve 222 yards in the week 17 debacle. I understand how hypocritical it is to say don't blame one person, and then go ahead and blame but something has to be done. With Yanda also, he is definitely not playing at the high caliber that the Ravens fans deserve. I'm not saying trash the whole line, but changes do need to be made whether it be in the playbook or on the coaching staff.

The opinions posted here are those of the administrator of this blog and his loyal readers. They are in no way official comments from the team, and should not be misconstued as such, even though he thinks he could do just as well or even a better job!
