    Max protect Flacco



    Use full backfield, 2 halfbacks and a fullback. Ravens need 5 to 7 minute drives to keep our defence off the field. Also, it's easier to run block.

    Want be easier to run block when there's about 10 men in the box all knowing what's going to happen.

    Exactly.

    What we need to do is keep other defenses off balance and run the no huddle around 90 % of the game. Use a smash mouth no huddle system and pound the ball with Rice while dink and dunking it, then the odd deep shot. I just this offense is better suited for the short/quick passing game rather than dropping back and throwing it up in the air.

    We did this so well against the Bengals, and other teams earlier on in the year but got away from it because of some bad road performances.

    IDK about 3-back looks, but the 'Skins teed off on the empty backfield sets - let's lose those. Don't fall into patterns w/ Leach by which his absence signals pass. He's gotten good yardage on short, waggle-esque routes across the flats these last 2 games.

    True dat on TOP/longer drives. Even should the low percentage deep passes work, they make for quicker scores that put our banged up D back out there quickly.

    This defense is going to get killed, quick or slow. Set the offense up to score as many points as possible.

    That's the only way they're going to win this game. The offense has to keep scoring touchdowns.

    Implementing a short passing attack will do more for the passing game than max protection will. In max-pro they're going to rely on the receivers winning one on one match ups, which isn't something they've been able to do on a consistent basis.

    Max protection schemes mean there are only a couple of receivers in the pattern. That is a lot easier for the defense to guard against. Spread the defense out with multiple receiver sets, but basically run the Patriots offense with a lot of slants, screens, rubs, crossing routes, etc. Get the ball out of Flacco's hand before the rush can get to him, and add in a healthy serving of Ray Rice.

    I'd rather see them spread the field than max protect. Something tells me they'll run stretch plays, draws, screens, and work to win the TOP battle. But it will also take TDs; field goals won't win this one.

    And oh John? If the Ravens win the coin toss, let's not defer and put the "defense" out on the field first, m'kay?

    I do not understand why Leach is taken off the field as often as he is. He's a great passblocker, and a more then adequate receiver.

    So in part, I agree with the post, but to a lesser degree. I'd rather see a TE on the field as opposed to having rice, pierce and Leach in the backfield.
    I think the standard pro-style 2 WR , 1 TE, 1 FB, 1 RB set is what works best for this offense, passing and running. Occasionally dropping a TE for an extra WR is a better move, IMO then dropping Leach. He is a FAR better pass protector then any TE we can put on the field. An obvious passing set with 3 WR's and sa split backfield will help BOTH OT's out, and they will surely need it against Von MIller and Dumervil.

    Our TEs and RBs aren't great/consistent at pass protection anyway.
    Better to use them as receivers which plays more to their strengths.
    So, I agree with you...

    ...and with you. Leach should be on the field for 95% of our offensive plays. For the reasons you gave but also so the opposing D can't tell so easily when it's going to be a pass or a run--which will really help to sell our play-action, which again plays to the strengths of our team.

    (NB I went back to his career stats & was surprised to find that Houston actually used him as a receiver about as often as the Ravens do--I'd thought it was something they were helping him develop. It's also interesting to see that he hasn't fumbled in 95 touches since the start of 2008.)

    It's a helluva nice option to have a FB who's a force of nature as a lead blocker, a good pass blocker, & also able to slip out of the backfield & pick up 6-8 yards on a flare pass (& make whoever tries to tackle him ache well into next year) because the defense is ignoring him. I'd take that all day & twice on Sunday until the defense decides it needs to stop it--whereupon other possibilities open up.
