In all seriousness, if Charlie "Freaking" Batch can dissect the Ravens Defense in our place, what hope do we have that our Defense will man up against the likes of RG3, and the Brothers Manning?!
"Just might"--? IMHO it will be a minor miracle if they don't lose the next 3, probably in humiliating fashion.Quote:
We just might lose the next 3 games; whether we even make the playoffs could come down to beating the Bengals at their place.
Sooooo...I guess the Ravens should just dial-in the forfeit next week?
One silver lining is that they had a close Monday night game (although it barely looked like a tough one, there were barely any snaps). They'll have a short week to prepare for us. You could also argue that a lot of their success has had to do with a convenient bye week and a virtual bye week before this game due to Thanksgiving.
RG3 represents a unique problem, but i think well actually match up pretty well. Im more worried about their speed on offense than him alone. Offensively, assuming they double Torrey and allow boldin to match up on hall, id assume our TEs will have a good day. as bad as they are, ill agree our system isnt very challenging for them to actually defend. i suspect a somewhat close game thats probably more ground and pound oriented than many would first think.
Zone Read, West Coast base, Triple Option, ... pretty creative offense.
Last night was their big pritimetime game so they were pumped. At least Ravens catch them on a Sunday afternoon
Record aside, they are the better team. I say the Redskins beat us by 10.
I predict Flacco will lose another 5-10 million on his new contract offer this week
While RGIII goes for about 300 yds passing, 75 yds rushing, and 4 scores
I think the Redskins have a very good offense (#7 in yards and #8 in points). I cannot see the Ravens holding them to less than 20 points.
Which means the Ravens offense going to have to break out of their scoring slump and put some points up on the board. The good news: The Redskins defense is much worse than what the Ravens have faced the past few weeks (the Redskins have actually given up more yards than the Raiders).
This game will come down to Flacco and the offense. If they can execute and capitalize on the plays that will be there, they have a very good chance of winning the game. If they struggle, I don't think the defense will be able to bail them out like they did in Pittsburgh, Cleveland and San Diego.
Here we go crowning the 6-6 Redskins...
Their defense has given up a whopping 301 points already.. Only the Colts defense is worse for teams with a shot at making the playoffs.
I will say this - I'm jealous of their offense. Morris is a hell of a find in the 6th round.. RG III is Mike Vick with a brain and a better arm.. A couple more moves at offensive skill positions and they just may be the next Tecmo Bowl type offense to start lighting up scoreboards every Sunday.
