    Good question. And since the ball wasn't snapped to him, what's the difference between him moving his hands and Ray Rice moving his hands when Flacco gets the snap in the shotgun?

    Yup, if it was anybody but fucking Brady or Peyton doing that it would be a personal foul. Actually, Peyton would never do that because he has class.

    Open it up Caldwell. Cowher is right. Don't leave it on the field.

    I don't understand the Pees hate at this point. Holding the Patriots to 13 points when your defense was out there for basically the entire half is nothing to be ashamed of. The only call of his I have issue with is having Kruger in coverage on Hernandez. Simply can't happen, no matter what. I'm okay with Kruger in coverage here and there but not on the Patriots primary offensive weapon.

    I think the special teams is more to blame. It's hard when you start inside your 15 every drive. The Patriots probably score 3 or less points if we switched field position.

    To put some perspective on a controversial "1st down run call"...

    They are playing cover-2 deep, which is predominately being used to take away the deep ball. So, Flacco is looking to check down to the slot, flats, and short middle...which is why Torrey is the only receiver with a reception right now. The Pats are doing a real good job at taking away that deep pass. In order for the offense to get the safeties to start cheating up and/or bite on some play actions, they have to run the ball a fair amount and they have to get the ball out into the flats to give Rice/Pierce/Leach/Pitta some space to move the chains. Once they can get a couple of successful string of plays together doing that, then the safeties will start cheating up.

    Once the safeties start cheating up, then they can take a couple of shots down field.

    The big thing that I've seen so far has just been poor execution from the receivers. Jacoby slipping, Boldin not getting open, Pitta dropped a pass that hit him in the hands, and Dickson dropped a pass that hit him in the hands.

    Not 14-13. And right now we are projected to finish with 14 points. If we win, it will be because our offense steps up. Our defense cannot possibly do any more than it did, considering our talent and the offensive competition.

    Anybody who is pissed at the defense has very little football knowledge.
    Although Walsh's system of offense can compensate for lack of talent; however, defense is a different story. According to Walsh, talent on defense was essential and could not be compensated for. What did Walsh do in 1981? He acquired physical and talented players on defense.

    Hernandez got called on one out of 2 of those types of plays last week vs Houston. I've seen that play by Woodhead a couple of times with the Pats and at least once by another team and it hasn't been called a penalty (though I remember it being a penalty a while ago, around the 03 or 04 playoffs against Indy). I'm guessing the referees know a little more about pre-snap procedures than we do

    I want to see the next time Brady slides with his legs up the closest defender stomp on his neck.

    Exactly.

    I guess recognizing something like that would take competency, something NFL officials, especially leavys crew, lacks.

    Tom Brady 14-for-24 for 139 yards and 1 TD in the first half. Joe Flacco 6-for-12 for 81 yards.

    Credit where it is due: 2 GREAT calls by BB. 1) Mallett as up back on the punt forcing the Ravens to call TO, (fortunately, no harm done), and 2) the direct snap to Dick, er....Woodhead.
