Thread: Packers Week!

    Re: Packers Week!



    I'm glad we're at M&T and not Lambeau. How are your OTs? Doom and Suggs are a good edge rushers and we can get a good push up the middle too. To me the most intriguing match up is your OL against our DL. If Rodgers gets time and space he'll pick our secondary apart, as he would to anyone. You've had a decent running game this year, so getting something out of that would slow our pass rush. Slowing down your offense isn't going to be easy. Take away the first week debacle and our defensive stats are solid.

    Our OL has been a major disappointment thus far. Joe needs more time to be effective. Monroe will be an upgrade over the woeful McKinney in run and pass blocking. Still, everyone is stacking the box and attacking our OL on the LOS for good reason. We'll run a lot even if it doesn't work since that's what we do, for better or worse. Too much of the latter this year. If we can control the clock then I'd look to wear your defense down in the second half. Your defensive doesn't strike fear in me, but we've been inept on offense thus far this year counterbalances that.

    I expect a close game but I make that same statement every week. Good luck.

    Well, it's going to be closer than the last time you guys came to M&T (the lone bright spark really on that season).

    Should be a good game - going to be down to which O line holds out best.

    Will be interesting to see how Ravens scheme against Rodgers. Without a doubt, except for broncos game, the defense adjusted well in the 2nd half of other games. It's the Ravens offense who will make or break this game.

    Ouch. Looks like CM3 is most likely out for Sunday's game. Flacco may have just dodged a bullet.

    I hope the Packers employ a similar defensive scheme to what they did against San Francisco.

    Should be a good game. I rarely, if ever pick against the Ravens when they are at home, and I won't start now. I expect Rodgers to exploit the Ravens secondary a bit, but he is going to be under extreme duress much of the game. On the other side, I expect losing Mathews is likely given it appears he needs surgery, and that hurts and already suspect defense. I think Flacco will have one of his better games, and the Ravens win a fairly high scoring affair.

    Not a problem, we don't have to gameplan like that, Flacco isn't athletic. HAHA!

    The Ravens are really tough to beat at M&T. The Ravens are 38-7 at M&T since 2008 including playoff games. My money is on the Ravens winning this one.

    Packers LB Clay Matthews still is undergoing more testing, but he is expected to miss one month with a broken thumb.

    Settle down. John Harbaugh and Joe Flacco's Baltimore Ravens can beat any team, anywhere.

    That's a big break for the Ravens (no pun intended), since we'll be breaking in a new left tackle. Does Matthews typically just line up on one side or do they move him around?

    I'm still concerned with Raji against our interior line, particularly our C Gradkowski. If they ever get paired one-on-one, it's an opportunity for Raji to collapse the pocket.

    I have very little faith in our run game at this point. I think you guys will mostly handle us there, forcing us to put the ball in Flacco's hands if we want to win. It's never good to be 1-dimensional, but without Matthews I feel like we'll have some success moving the ball through the air. Flacco is typically much more effective at home.

    Suggs and Dumerville are the biggest weapons we have to slow down Rodgers, but they're not alone. We have a lot of defensive lineman that can get to the quarterback, and the attention on our OLBs no doubt helps the others. As a result we have 19 sacks through 5 games.

    I could see both QBs getting hit a lot in this one, but with CM3 out hopefully we'll get the better end of that exchange.

    Our secondary can be beat, but despite what happened in Denver it's not a pushover. My biggest fear is the back shoulder throw against Jimmy Smith. You mentioned that the Packers like to do this. That's a terrible combo for us, since Smith has had trouble locating the ball at times.

    I think this will be a good game. Not sure who wins.

    Thanks for the breakdown!

    Cactus-

    Yeah he generally rushes from the right but at times they move him around. And if Jimmy struggles to locate the ball they will attack that. They hit that back shoulder over and over. I go to training camp every year and they practice it non-stop.

    Well hopefully Perry steps his game up. There is no better time than the present!

    Can our safeties step up? Rodgers has got to be looking to exploit them. There's our weakness on D.

    It is all about the scheme.

    I am hoping that their beleaguered offensive line will have the same issues that Miami did with Suggs, Doom, and Company.
