Welcome Skinsfan. RGIII was a great draft pick for you guys and your team is showing alot more promise than in years past. We are the, umm, 2012 Ravens...we can play good, bad and downright ugly so we'll just flip a coin to see what we get on Sunday. I will say historically the Ravens do not lose two games in a row so that is something to hang my hat on. Anyway, it should be a great game Sunday.
RG3 beat the SB champs last night and is the most exciting player
to come into the NFL since Vick with his passing and running.
Ravens D might not be able to contain him and the G-men had trouble
with the option play. With the way our D played Sun, we could have the same probs containing him.
It should be a good game. I had it for a win when the schedule
came out but I didn't know RG 3 would be this good and our
D this bad.
I'll be holding my breath.
You will when RG3 plays our D the way it is now.
The Giants have an aggressive pass rushing defense so all the deception with the play action and options caused their DE's to slow down and second guess. Our defense, on the other hand, is not aggressive at all and I think that might ironically benefit us.
But on the flip side, their pass defense is trash, and just got worse over the past week. Not that I have a lot of confidence in Cam Cameron, but I think that we can tee off on it and keep pace. Should be one of those 2012 style games that we haven't seen here in months!
Watching the amount of football I do Pros and college. The way to stop the read option is to not get too aggressive If you crash down on the RB the QB takes off around you, if you go after the QB (right away) he hands off up the middle.
I think a non-aggressive approach (not a conservative approach) should be good for this game, the offense, don't get me started on what I expect for that :D
2.That would be ideal for you. We need to establish the run, eat up clock, and keep RGIII off the field. Why our fucking play callers can't keep one number in their heads (25 touches for #27) from week to week. I'll never know.
3. If we can't close off his outside edge/lanes and seal his SWC calibre (that's a compliment!) play action fake option, then we're toast. I think our DBs match up better w/ your WRs than they did vs. Pitts. or will vs. Denver or NYG
If we can regularly force him to throw he might give up some picks.
4.Weakened or no Suggs nor Ellerbe will again expose our "coverage" in the middle & underneath and weaken the aforementioned edges.
Taking my godson to his first Raven Road game (again, originally assumed to be "low impact"). Finally found a bus (just a bus, not a bacchanal) from Baltimore. Expensive (where's the damn MTA when they are needed!), but add up a parking pass, gas, the general headaches and I'm almost even, greener. and definitely less stressed. Spent a week one night getting out of the Fed Ex lots after a 2002 Stones concert.
For this game I scored UL tix in Sept. for less per ticket than my seats @ M&T.
At least one head to head position battle the Ravens cannot possibly lose is OWNER!
