    Re: Week 1: Ravens v.s. Broncos



    You know who is going to go into the fetal position, just like he did last year? Wes Welker, that's who, right after Elam lays the wood a couple of times. Peyton is too good at avoiding hits, but Welker didn't want to be anywhere near the middle last year in New England, and he got a severe case of alligator arms. He will again.

    That's the dude I'd be focusing on as well.

    That quick slant crap he likes to run with a QB like Manning that likes to get rid of it quick could kill us and keep the defense on the field.

    You control him, you force Manning to hold onto the ball a tad more making him more uncomfortable.

    Re: Week 1: Ravens v.s. Broncos

    I"m just glad football is almost here. Not going into this game with any expectations other than to see what we've got in this new roster and hope for no injuries.

    I did notice that in my Yahoo pickem poll, 88% have selected Denver to win the game so I guess the rest of the world has no confidence in Baltimore. Would love love love to see the Ravens eeek out a win somehow

    With questions at CB, game 1 anyway they being untested, I fear Pees will drop DB's back, and not rush, or at least not disguise the pressure, and Manning will have too much time like Cousins, Vick, and Batch did last year.

    I don't want to see D cuteness or "genius" play calling; I want the D to pin their ears back and make Manning play under pressure even if Harbaugh has to intervene like the final SB drive last year.

    Spears, Canty, Smith, Doom, healthy Suggs; too much horsepower for bend don't break.

    I think Manning is going to target Jimmy Smith over and over again. I wonder if the Ravens would consider playing a nickel back for large segments of the game to help Smith in coverage?

    I'm not sure how a nickel back can help Smith. The nickel will be covering Welker, in all likelihood. It'll be Huff helping Smith over the top, and I can see D. Thomas lining up over Smith quite a bit. But they move him around so Smith will see plenty of Decker too.

    Either way, what happened with some of the coverage miscommunication in the preseason can't happen in Denver.

    The Broncos too have questions at CB, namely, is Champ Bailey going to play, and if he does, is he going to be any better than he was last time they played? I doubt he will be.

    Smith is the nickel back?
    Starters are Webb and Grahm, we only have 4 Corners on the roster currently, that is not good against a Manning offense...Were I the Bronco's I'd go 4 wide early and often.

    Good point, plus Von Miller is out and he's their best defensive player. I think they will be able to score but the Ravens should be able to score; could be one of those games.

    Saw on the Broncos website they're trying to get the crowd to be as loud as possible when they're on D and very quiet when they're on O. Guess the fan base needs a little educating

    I think the Ravens will use Webb against the Broncos slot receiver (Welker). So, that still leaves Thomas and Decker, who would likely be covered by Graham and Smith. I just think that Smith is going to get victimized if he doesn't get safety help. The Ravens are likely going to have to play at least 5 DBs for a majority of the game.

    If Jimmy starts giving up big gains, they will probably shade Huff to his side. One thing is for sure, in the Harbaugh era, they certainly are prepared for week 1 games. Remember Pittsburgh a couple of years ago?

    I don't think putting Webb on a slot receiver is a good idea. I would rather Webb cover the top receiver, and let Elam and/or Ihedigbo pound the squirt to submission and alligator arms. Mean time put pressure on Manning. If they go 4 wide as I predict, expect quick passes and hound him so that should he hold it he pays the toll. Jump the routs early in that case and get a few interceptions.

    What!!!! Brandon Williams, damn. I was so looking forward to seeing him in Denver. This guy is a beast in the middle for a young guy. Damn, hope he ready by week 2. He has a good motor, and was a joy to see him in preseason. I like this kid.

    Meh... I would feel better if I didn't think our offense was a wet noodle right now. Unless Joe severely elevates every receiver not named Torrey Smith, I just don't know whose going to really make the necessary plays. Thankfully we have a great run game to fall back on
