understatement. the first half was ugly. it's not all on the quarterback but it does start with nick foles. let's go to the linc. the two fumbles he had, he only had four turnovers all last year fumbles and interceptions. he held the ball too long. there's a clock that goes off in quarterback's head he's not that kind of quarterback. i know he's better. this is first and goal from the five. you've got to throw it away if the guy is not open. he knows that. and what he was always good at is being accurate. and he wasn't in the first half. now people think coaches below up at the players at half when this kind of happens. not the case yesterday. >> when we went into half time just a matter of we got to take deep breath and settle down and this is what we'll feature when we come out in the second half. a lot what we had in the play off we have we were just a play off a guy off a step here. give the quarterback more time. make sure we get through the progressions quicker and then let's see if we can get back in it but i didn't -- i didn't think or feel i think even in the game that we were like god, we're getting our tales blown

i agree. shame on those deciding his punish many many. it was unbelievable. this is sad and did you say gust on so many levels. i ported back in february when it happened there was video ray rice punched his video in the face and knocked her out. i believe the nfl commissioner roger goodell covered this up as did the ravens. it made it worse when originally it was only a two game suspension with the nfl saying they saw no other evidence or video. that's a joke. they salute dollar see that video. it's about tv. it's about the money in the nfl and the ravens are not as good a team without ray rice. now, there are a couple of iron niece here in this whole thing. ray and his fiance' gentleman may palmer got a marriage license two days after she got knocked unconscious. married 26 days later. now, understand this. a spouse does not have to testify against her husband in new jersey. doesn't say much for both of them if revel had not gone out of this the security person would not have come forward with this video. this is bad so many ways and any
