Weekly Pwnage: Baltimore Ravens
To say it’s been one of those seasons for the Baltimore Ravens would probably be an understatement, especially from the perspective of Ravens fans. Just when you thought it couldn’t get any lower (although, it’s hard to get much lower after getting swept by the lowly Bengals, but I digress), the Ravens made a trip to Miami to face the 0-13 Dolphins.
In an NFL year that has the New England Patriots going for the perfect season, the Dolphins were trying to avoid their own brand of perfection and it looks like the Ravens were just what the Doctor ordered. After getting the game to overtime, thanks to a suspect field goal call by Ravens coach Brian Billick, the Dolphins had dodged another bullet as Ravens kicker Matt Stover missed a 44-yard kick that would’ve given the game to Baltimore. On the following possession, Miami canceled their date with history when Cleo Lemon hit Greg Camarillo with a short pass.
Camarillo handled the rest, going 64 yards for the touchdown, giving the Fins their first win of the season. Baltimore, on the other hand, fell to 4-10 as they lost their eighth game in a row. What’s next for the Ravens? Do they stick with Heisman winner, Troy Smith to see if he’s the quarterback of the future or does Billick run back and give Kyle Boller yet another chance to fail? Over at the Baltimore Beatdown blog, Maxx has some ideas:
“However, if your coach doesn’t have the gonads to go for the game winning TD that sits six inches away, then he’ll never make a good decision like that, unless Boller’s concussion is such that won’t allow him to play next week and the choice is made for Billick.”
Evidently, the Ravens fanbase isn’t satisfied either. Congrats Baltimore, you’re this week’s Weekly Pwnage award recipient and a strong candidate for our Player of the Weak award as well. I’ll leave with the YouTube of Camarillo’s game-winning touchdown, which I found at Awful Announcing.
