    We killed a bad team at home, good win but doesn't mean the Ravens are all of a sudden Super Bowl contenders. The Ravens are a 4 seed, should beat the Colts at home and then will lose to whomever they play in the second round.
    How about we enjoy destroying the defending Super Bowl champs to wrap up back to back AFC North titles instead of writing off our 10th win this season?

    Re: What made the difference?

    The simple answer:

    The biggest difference in this game came on 3rd down. The ravens converted on 11 of 18 third downs while holding the giants to 2/10.

    Re: What made the difference?

    My answer: Playcalling, simple as that.

    This is the first game in a long long while where I haven't been able to call a lot of the plays pre-snap.... I had gotten good at it under Cam (as had probably most of us).
    What was with the motion man going into 3 point stance on the other side? They usually rounded the cut upfield at ball snap.
    I saw Rice hit in stride in the middle, not standing there late waiting as a check-down.

    Now as time goes on, we may be able to again impress the casual fan with our play reading, but I stunk at it this last game, and looks like the Giants did also.
    To understand paranoid people better, follow them around.

    Young guy, Chykie Brown? He was everyehere.
    Glad someone mentioned execution.

    Flacco didn't sail passes, Boldin held in to the ball, DB's played tight, etc.

    Boldin had a very good game, made some tough catches. I had almost forgotten how good he can be. (Okay, I guess I did forget).

    A lot of that started with the OL though. Flacco was able to step up into his passes on most downs.

    Re: What made the difference?

    don't care how awful the Jints were, they were the team on our sched. too bad we couldn't have played the Iggles later in the year.
    I'm real happy with how the new guys produced. Bernard Pierce--breakout game. Arthur Jones contributed, Chykie Brown came up big, and Omar Brown sure proved he was worth the draft pick.
    Oh, wait, he was undrafted adding to the Ozzie legend (Bart Scott, Will Demps, Jameel McClain).

    I really like that we hung on to Omar Brown.

    He may never be a starter at safety, but he is nice depth with upside.

    That made a HUGE difference, on the long pass to Pitta, Joe was pressured from the outside and just climbed that ladder.

    Guaranteed that Caldwell had a long talk with Joe about his mechanics. Even the pass to Torrey when he was rolling out tp the left was a beautiful pass that Torrey tried to 1-hand it. Had he used both hands he definitely could have come down with that.

    All I heard this week was how the Giants were the better team, and how awesome their pass rush was.

    Agree about everything except the last. I think we are the team that NO ONE wants to see in round two. Even at our worst we are hard to handle and we will not be at our worst.

    It's standard fare from a certain breed of fan. All wins are because the other team screwed up, all losses are because we did. The idea that the other team is paid just as much to win doesn't enter into it. Frankly it's tiresome, and becoming painfully common on this board.

    Give the Giants at least a little bit of credit. Like you said, they are paid to win also. Not to mention they are the defending SB Champs. Last year this time they were heating up and making a run for it. Nothing says we can't do the same and come at all the "top teams" out of where every pundit puts us.....no where!
