    It's like saying teams that run the victory formation in the 4th quarter always win. So why not just come out and run the victory formation in the 4th quarter?
    The stat geniuses always seem to have a hard time understanding that.

    Running the football is important, still, in the NFL. It doesn't really matter if it's Rice or Pierce, as long as it's effective. It's good to have two different backs with different running styles, and the two of them give us that.

    Rice is a big weapon though, including receiving out of the backfield. Getting him 20+ touches is a good goal going into a game, because he's a threat to break a big play every time he touches the ball.

    Trading Rice seems foolish to me, though. He's in the prime of his career, and he's usually around 2000 yards from scrimmage every year.

    *smh* ...this was Webby's year man.

    He did it once, but here's hoping he has the dedication and genes of Adrian Peterson.
    Back to the AFCCG we go. So get ready!

    There you hit it. The big plays are what's missing this year. Rice has 230 carries and only 5 of 20 or more yards. That's 1 big play every 46 carries. Add 5 more on 55 catches and it's 1 big play every 11 catches.

    Clearly a lot of things have to go right for big plays to happen, but more of these means more points and more opportunities to salt away games late by running. Figure out what's stopping the long runs and you'll figure out how to fix the Ravens offense (which coincidentally takes more pressure off the quarterback, makes the play action more effective and keeps the defense off the field more...win, win, win, win, win)

    Webb has now had 2 season ending injuries in 4 years. Way too early to make any decision on KO. Based on what we know now no pick since Rice has been close to as good as Rice.

    I'd trade him for a high first rounder and draft a damn LT. He looked listless last week and may not be happy with the inconsistency in the play calling here.

    Once again Ray Rice shows that he's a top player in the NFL. It's insane to even consider moving him. Glad the Ravens would never do this
