All the stats and rankings are what they are. The most important stat to me is that the Ravens are 44-14 in regular season games that he's started and didn't leave early due to injury. That's a .759 winning percentage. They're 2-6 in games he didn't start/play or got hurt early and exited with no return. That's a .250 winning percentage. Off the top of my head... of the 14 full game losses, he led a go ahead drive late at Vegas but Wink and company couldn't hold the lead for 37 seconds, and they had the infamous 21 point 4th quarter lead vs Miami where McDonald summoned the ghost of Wink and his cover zero / single high to help give away an almost unlosable lead.
If a .759 winning percentage isn't elite / top 10 level... I dunno what is... and I'm hard pressed to think that the ginormous discrepancy is dumb luck.
4 postseason games he's 1-3. Small sample size and a mildly insane game plan his second playoff outing. He very likely would have had at least a 5th sample to consider last year if he hadn't gotten hurt.
I don't disagree with any of that. I'm just saying this one game doesn't define the season. I would hate to see him make an injury worse against a 3 win team and then we actually do have him miss three or four games. Which could knock them out of a home playoff game.
