  1. Re: Game Thread -- Ravens @ Bengals (Pseudo Preseason Edition)



    MUCH more important to go on a playoff/SB run with a Healthy team than go all out and win a meaningless game.

    Winning this game has No bearing on how they will perform next week, at home, in a playoff atmosphere.

    We've seen what this team can do when healthy and that's what we'll need to make a run.

    Yes, we HAVE seen it, and we know that this team is about as streaky and hot and cold as they come.

    I don't see how you can say this game has no bearing on the postseason when history tells us the opposite is true.

    The Ravens will lose and lose huge, possibly posting a goose egg on offense. The only upside will be that it never hurts to have a chance to evaluate the backups, particularly guys like Gino who might be asked to start next year. I'm disappointed that Doss is out as I would have really liked to see what he could offer as a starter.

    I can never support a "play to lose" mentality, even in meaningless games, but I also don't mind giving guys like Suggs a chance to rest. The problem is that even if it's a fuzzy concept, momentum absolutely DOES exist, and they desperately need to grow and expand their momentum, especially on offense. A successful day on the road could be huge to an offense that needs to continue to work out kinks in rhythm and timing. They're squandering an opportunity today.

    Don't really like this approach. The Steelers took this approach vs us in 2007 and they whooped at home the next week by the Jags. I don't like coasting into the post season, teams that do that almost never go all the way.

    Not disagreeing with anything you said, esp the hot/cold asspect. But if we're a healthy team and win the WC round at home, I think that momentum in itself eill carry over into the divisional round.

    We can root/hope for this, and IF we win that game you're probably right, but it's that wild card game itself that causes concern ...

    Who said the Bengals are not resting their guys? It is what it is, but I'm excited that we can see some others step up!

    Could someone remind us of what Flacco needs today to end the season on a good note? How many yards to 4000, how many TDs for a 2:1 TD:INT ratio?

    Geno Atkins is going to own this game. He started off well by blowing that play up for no gain.
