Honestly the Ravens actually did stick to the run in the 3Q (personally, I think too much.... PAP over the middle patterns Cam). The OL just was horrible at opening holes. Everyone points out how Joe is nite and day road vs. home, but I think the OL is even more Jeckyll and Hyde when comparing their performance between the two. Thats the one spot where they've gotta improve, and I think everything else falls into place (Rice/Pierce run the rock better and Joe & the Receivers have more time for Cam's long developing pass routes.) At least the coaches know that and they are trying to find the right mix with Reid coming in yesterday.
No matter what, we still will get in the dance. Maybe it's a turning point. Who knows, but i have faith in this team, to get more than 10 wins, for sure.. A tougher road but thats fine with me. Maybe it's going to be a more grinding year, but this team finds a way to win, and Winning is the job.
I still think we are going to superbowl. Yes i watch the games. But really if we sweep all home games, and sweep sqeelers then we will be right where we want to be. Yes i hear everyone about cam, pees, joe, Dline , oline, playbook, and everything else. But i still think we got a good as anybody chance to win every week and get to the dirty south for the big dance.
But even after we win the superbowl, both Cam and Pees need to walk. WE need Charm City swagger back in this D.
O and i live in shitsburgh, so there is no way in hell, i would say we will lose to the Sqeelers.And hand them the North.
The north belongs to the RAVENS!!!! Defending and A 3-0 in north so far. O and we are i think, 10-0 in AFC north right now.
Those of you said you don' see us losing to the skins, and I would say YES if it was at home. Our abysmal road numbers, coupled with the Skins rushing attack and our inability to stop the run, coupled with RG3 a mobile QB who's better than Vick and Vick already gave us fits this year. Sorry just see it as a tough close loss.
I would be considered a negative poster by most in this thread and I don't see us losing to the skins. Their defense is horrid. RG3 is exciting but teams are starting to figure him out. His numbers have been steadily declining over the course of the season. Carolina shut him down pretty easily on Sunday. Shanahan has already thrown the towel in on the season stating that they are evaluating players for next year. If the Ravens cant beat them 10 wins may be a stretch.
No game can be counted as a victory before it is played. NO GAME. Take it week to week and see where you end up. The good thing is their 3 of the 4 toughest games are at home.
SD isnt that good, their OLine is crap and Rivers is an interception machine. The Browns I've watched a lot this year and arent that bad, way better than their record. They are in every game til the end. I am not sure what the Ravens record will be at the end, but it just seems every game comes down to the last few minutes.
I think this thread will be pretty humorous when they end up 11-5 or 12-4. theres not a game on the schedule this team cannot beat.
None of those teams you can say are playing lights out football right now. Dont let our own flaws blind you from seeing other teams.
