Iron. let me break it to you easy. The Ravens a finished. They placed way too much equity in a mediocre Flacco. They gave away guys like Boldin, who helped win the superbowl.
You are also feeling the effects of missing one of the all-time team captains (Ray Lewis)
The smart thing to do, is to ask Flacco to restructure his deal after the season. If he is unwilling to to that, then you cut him.
Getting rid of Boldin was a good move, he wouldn't have been resigned, and you had to see what the young bucks could do. I didn't think however, that the line would be this bad at run blocking just from losing Matt Birk. Oh well, I thought pierce would take over in 2015, but it may be next year. 6-6, still in the hunt though.
