08:04 AM ET 10.19 | Joe Flacco may be ready to air it out, both with the ball and with the coaching staff. After the overtime loss to the New England Patriots Sunday, there was a sense of frustration from the third-year quarterback. Flacco didn't say a word about it in the locker room Sunday, but he came close by mixing his words, and it was written all over his face as well as some of the receivers. It might be time for coach John Harbaugh and offensive coordinator Cam Cameron to give Flacco some rope. ... [After the game, it was] obvious that Flacco was not pleased.

Next step at being a good qb, forget what the HC says, do what you know

Losing in OT is frustrating son. Calm down!

How many times in the past have we seen a moment when a loss like this one turns a season on it's ear?

Beware the Ravens!

if you have a good D and a young Qb, you're gonna be conservative... prove yourself then they'll open it up...

What QB isn't happy after a loss?

Baltimore's bread and butter is tough defense and conservative offense... they are a poor man's Pittsburgh Steelers.

"Poor Man's" because they don't have as many SB's or wins as Pitt over the last decade.

They should pitch a shutout against the Bills.

He was so upset, there's a report that he actually showed emotion.

Yeah - as long as that dude is their QB you gotta include them. But that defense is horrid!

in their division (minus tenn) they have the worse Defenses in the league....

The Pats figured them out by the fourth quarter. Of course, their TD drives earlier in the game were helped a lot by pass interference calls against the Pats, so the game might not have been that close if the Pats could have cleaned that up a bit earlier.

What really turned the game around in OT was the monster 60+ yard punt by Zoltan Mesko, who you will remember as The Most Interesting Man In The NFL. Until then, field position got better for the Ravens on every exchange, but they couldn't dig out of that hole.

Even so...they don't usually beat themselves so that still gives them a chance. Hmmm...what team am I thinking about? never mind!
