    I wonder how much of that is their using plays they haven't been practicing all year. I saw more quick passes called during the game than any game previous. Both screen attempts to Rice were blown up. The players didn't execute well, from the o-line to Flacco to the receivers. The running game wasn't working like it did against the Redskins.

    I didn't have a problem with the play selection overall, and especially the passing plays that were called. I don't mind running the ball on first and second down most of the time, though if it's not working, obviously the OC needs to shake things up. Under Cameron, we basically got run-run-bomb, or bomb-bomb-bomb, with a mix slow developing out-routes.

    I'm hoping another week of practice on Caldwell's play selections will see an improvement. I don't know what they can do about the o-line, however, outside of looking for beefy fans to suit up...

    Denver is the best defense the Ravens have seen all season. Stop acting like Cam doesn't stink.

    He said best defense the ravens have faced, not pass rush. That would be Cinci who have more sacks than any other team.

    Ranks by yards really are a bad way to rank a defense.

    Points, third downs, turnovers and sacks are what counts IMO.

    The Houston defense is very well coached by Wade Philips, who probably coaches the best scheme in football. However, the Texans really aren't all that talented on defense like they are on offense. It really is JJ Watt and the rest down there with Brian Cushing on IR.

    He is consistently late, high and behind his receivers on the short to intermediate over the middle throws. He doesn't even throw the checkdowns to Ray Rice in a manner where Rice has some momentum as he catches the ball. How many times have we seen Ray make a one handed catch or picked a throw off his toes.
    You're eye test is failing you. Dink and dunk are primarily checkdowns to Ray Rice, not the intermediate throws as you suggested. FWIW dink and dunk are fall back plays and are not designed to hit receivers in stride so they catch the passes with momentum.

    I like the WCO but with a power run element to it, or even a zone running scheme that Houston run. The Patriots have a great power run scheme that they go to a lot to set up the pass, the 49ers do it well too, but I notice they like to take their deep shots a bit more with Kaepernick at QB.

    Yep. That same Houston defense that held us to 13 points. Everyone is entitled to a bad day.

    lol yeah against our offence. We have held a bunch of teams to even less than 13 points this year, but are we a good defense right now? No chance. The Texans have been getting torched by a number of teams, it's not just ''one bad day''.

    The Texans were playing lights out on D earlier in the season until injuries started piling up. Sort of like us, except we haven't played great D all year.

    Lets face it. A huge part of our offense over the last few years has been throwing the long ball and getting 30+ yard DPI penalties. For whatever reason, we aren't getting as many of those calls this year. Is it because Boldin isn't flopping as well, or are the refs loosening up? Who knows, but a lot of those long balls are thrown into coverage purposely, with little hope they'll actually be completed.
