    Re: Ravens vs Vikings!



    There are certainly some similarities.
    -Same crap OL play.
    -Same uninventive playcalling (temporary pass for it being preseason)
    -Overly complex defensive scheme that effectively reduces the individual talent of the players.
    -Poor scheming for quick passes and TEs.

    McNair made one bad decision. I won't kill him too much. It was a really, really bad one, but the QB of time past made way more than that in a half.

    Good point!

    BTW, I have no problems running the game threads over here, but I'd like to wait until they get more members over here. Too slow right now. I need exposure baby, exposure!

    Re: Ravens vs Vikings!

    Billick needs to find out what it is that makes the OL play so bad on the road. They can play reasonably well at home, as they did the past two weeks, but it all falls apart on the road.

    And I think Rex Ryan needs to get back to basics. Find a way to defend the TE. Forget his complex playbook until we can execute simple schemes.

    Re: Ravens vs Vikings!

    Poor Sephy, he's torn. LOL

    Run it on this one, Sephy. Most of the regulars have registered here anyway.

    Ease up on McNair, people, it's hjis pre-season too, anjd he is still getting the nuances of the playbook down and learning the capabilities of his teamates.

    It will be ironic though, if Boller comes in the second half and once again wins the game.

    Hah. Well maybe I can start one over there and just link the thread here I prefer the board format here anyway. Lightyears beyond EZboard. I still rue the day RN2 went to Scout/EZboard.

    Re: Ravens vs Vikings!

    I'm new to these game threads since never been away w/o TV before. Is there a score? Can anyone synopsize the game outside of the OL sucks and McNair can't throw deep?

    Re: Ravens vs Vikings!

    You can check my thread on the other board if it makes you happy. Its 10-0 Vikings right now. McNair looked OK, but threw a pick for 6. Defense playing great against the run, poorly against the pass, especially quick passes.

    Oh god no don't do that, then all the idiot trolls will come over here and ruin this board.

    Re: Ravens vs Vikings!

    Screw it, I'll do the second half here. Test run, if you will!

    Block in the back on the return.
    1st for Boller at the 9, the carry for Anderson gets 1 if he's lucky.
    2nd and 9, pass caught by Mughelli, gain of 5. Chester and Brown are in, I think our second string interior line is better than our first.
    3rd and 4, nice pass to Darling gets to the 25 and a first down.
    1st, pass for Sypniewski batted down, a bit telegraphed.
    2nd, draw for Anderson for a gain of 2 or 3.
    3rd and long, false start.
    3rd and 12, Boller stares down his primary target, just sitting and waiting for him to come open, he doesn't so he tucks and runs. Tried to hit Moore on the sideline, but no dice.
    Punt return stopped at the 30.

    Re: Ravens vs Vikings!

    What is Moore doing out there...Williams??

    And is our second string OL really better, or are they better because they are playing against second string guys? Regardless, the big problem in the first half was Pashos, and we don't have a replacement for him. There is nobody. Unless we explore trade options with one of our RBs.

    Re: Ravens vs Vikings!

    1st, carry for Mathis gets about 1. Ngata really getting pushed around.
    2nd and 9, better push for Ngata this time, still stood up though, but the quick pass falls incomplete.
    3rd, McMahon chucks it somewhat deep for Barton. Weak play by #29.
    1st down from the Ravens 40, complete to McMullen for 5.
    2nd and 5, delayed give to Harris for 1.
    3rd and 4, SACK by Mike Smith! Another good effort from him. Can't believe he's on the bubble. Penalty on Minny declined.
    Ross in to return, touchback.

    Unfortunately...that's it.

    And our defense spends so much time running around with exotic blitzes and coverages, they can't defend the short passing game.
