    Hahaha, no. Baltimore wasn't better. Both of their lines got smashed all game long. And I didn't say it decided the game. It was indicative of how things went for Baltimore. Every single break went their way.

    I don't know what game YOU were watching. Tennessee had NO answer for the Baltimore blitz all night long. And hardly put any pressure on the Flacco expect for in a few instances. If you ask me, the game was decided in the 3rd quarter on that Baltimore fumble recovery where Tennessee forced the punt and then couldn't make hay of it on the next drive, complete pwnage. GAME OVER

    Are you implying that they paid the refs?

    There's little excuse for consistently coughing up the ball near the endzone. That is an absolute momentum changer. There's this neat little metric for baseball called win probability. Basically it can be formatted for each game to show per inning, or even event, the likely hood of one team winning over another. It varies from 0 to 1 and is continuous throughout the game. With out running the numbers I can almost conclude with certainty that turning the ball over when on the cusp of scoring drastically alters the probability of winning a game. Doing this repeatedly is the quickest and most efficient ways of epically losing.

    It's a horrendous way to attempt to win a game. Turnover ratio is a common stat that announcers bring up and that doesn't even take into consideration the area or time in game!!
    My cold, snide, intellectual life is just a veneer, behind which lies the plywood of loneliness.

    Yeah, I'm thinking you have no idea what you're talking about. Collins had plenty of time to throw all game long. They Ravens broke through a couple times, that's it.

    The play of the game was Crumpler's fumble in the 4th quarter. The Titans score a TD to ice the game if he doesn't fumble.

    Wow your powers of denial are strong, Collins was throwing the ball away to keep from getting his ass waxed all night especially when it counted...

    I agree, there is no excuse. That's why the Titans lost. But this talk about Baltimore being a better team is a joke. The better team doesn't always win the game (otherwise there would be a 19-0 team every season).

    Really? 26-42 is pretty good for him (he's not the most accurate QB). He threw a few balls away, but not very many. By the way you're talking, he was dodging blitzers every play, throwing balls into the stands.

    I think you're just trolling, probably angry with me after that BART thread. Of course you'll never admit that, but I have a good sense for these things.
