It last happened in 2005, when coach Brian Billick juggled between Kyle Boller and Anthony Wright under center for a squad that fizzled out at 6-10.
Said wideout Steve Smith: "We don't have a choice. Our dates are set and we got to show up. We can't pack it in, we can't feel sorry for ourselves. We got to play better and be grown men."
The growth must come quick with a trio of division showdowns ahead. The Ravens host the Bengals, visit the Steelers and welcome in the Browns over the next three weeks. A loss to 2-0 Cincinnati would put the Ravens effectively 3 1/2 games down in the AFC North. Baltimore then makes back-to-back trips to the West Coast against San Francisco and Arizona, rounding a doozy of an early-season slate.
With Harbaugh coaching and Ozzie Newsome pulling the strings, we trust in Baltimore to turn it around. But their wiggle room to do so is fading with every week.
On to Cincinnati.
