    you make great points butttttt i think your seeing a more confident ravens defense this year.(i know its only one game)but looking at clevland they cant stop anything.not the pass,run,they just are plain horrible.thats what i see after watching them.

    i see us controlling the clock and jamal tops out at 12 to 15 carries.their passing game cant seem to get a footing.i dont know what the deal is with edwards but he is not catching a cold.winslow has been solid so far half his catches have gone for first downs.they still only average 134 yards passing.they are not even close to 100 yards a game rushing.


    IMO jamal will hardly be a factor tomorrow.

    Last year does not matter anymore.

    This year, the Clowns are back at the bottom of the division where they belong. Bad on offense and defense.

    They played two very good teams, but got beaten badly. The Steelers did not run te score up on them, but they did what ever they wanted to on offense, and shut them down on defense.

    DA is not an all pro QB. He can throw, but he is still a young player who is and will be confused by coverage and rattled by pressure.

    Week 1 the Ravens rookie qb played like a veteran and Palmer played like a rookie, because Palmer was pressured and had to throw into coverage. The Browns do not have the players to create the coverage and pressure packages needed to confuse a rookie QB. They will not be able to stop the run with a 7 man front. They will not be able to get pressure with a 4 man rush. They are desperate and will have to gamble with 5 and 6 man blitzes and 8 man fronts on firstdown. The problem is, everyone knows this and unlike under Billick, the Ravens will adjust and attack it vertical, and I do not see any one in coverage who can match up 1 on 1 with any of out top 4 targets. With a lead, our defense and running game is lethal.

    HR, he did not break 100 yards on us either game. Yeah, he had 92 yards the second game, but he didn't do enough against our ailing defense last year to make me believe we can't stop him tomorrow.

    And consider he ran just 38 yards last week. Our defense is almost completely healthy minus Kelly Gregg on the front line (which I think for the moment Justin Bannon can fill in for).

    Meh, if Jamal breaks 70 yards against us tomorrow I will be very surprised.

    As for the two headed monster they had last year, they don't have that same power this year. I just don't see them running on us.

    My score stands.

    It makes me nervous that we seem to agree now. How did one game change your outlook so much? You were captian of the panic attack in the preseason.

    Sting, I hear ya ...

    Just saying WE need to prove we can stop Jamal still. We game planned for him last year and got burned for it -- they ran three different backs and they owned that side of the ball.

    IMHO, I agree we have the healthy D this year to do it. All I am saying it will most likely come down to that ground game that we allowed to set the pace last season.

    Well, for starters, we didn't sign Dante Culpepper.

    I know he is a better Qb than Bauman, but he may not be a better backup.

    I knew all would take was decent Qb play beat teh bad teams in our division, but I did not expect it to come from Joe Flacco just yet. Troy Smith will be back in the mix as the #2 so I am good with the personel and the plan for the O.

    But it is crazy to look at last yearas any indication of what this year will hold, if you want to compare things you need to go back to the 2006 season when we were healthy if you want to compare. We were injured beyond belief last year and we still could have beat them. We have not allowed a 100 yard rusher in 22 or 24 straight games, if we lose tomorrow it will be because of turnovers not because we could not stop the run period!

    Last season though is last season. And even then we didn't lose either game on Jamal Lewis's running. I'm just not that concerned with Jamal at this point.

    My only real concern will be the offensive line. If they hold up again like they did against the Bengals, then we're going to score some points. If not, that's a whole different story.

    I doubt this game is going to turn on a bouncing field goal.

    It's funny, one area i am not concerned about is the offensive line.

    As long as they are willing to offer a RB to give help on blitzes and the blind side our line will be very good.

    I expect it will be about week 8 before the national media figures out that we have a very good young line and mentions it.

    actually they won't mention it till week 10 because we are baltimore, but they'll figure it out about week 8.

    Re: Browns @ Ravens

    You can't base predictions for this year of off last season. The Browns where not as good last year as their record indicated. The bounced their way every time last year.
    Jamal is a year older and won't have no where near the same year as last year. I will be very surprised to see him get more than 75 yards. He'll spend most of Sunday on the sideline sucking air.

    The Browns are in a uphill battle come Sunday. Their going to be facing a rested, heathly Ravens D. That fact alone should be enough to keep Anderson up all night.

    The game will be similar to week 1 cincy game. As in the score wont reflect how much of a blowout it really was.

    Ravens 23
    Brown 13

    Re: Browns @ Ravens

    BTW Browns guard Eric Steinbach is out for the game tomorrow. So Jamal may have some trouble running center-left.

    AND it was just reported that Braylon Edwards is also 50/50 for the game tomorrow. Donte Stallworth is also questionable.

    http://www.baltimoresun.com/sports/f...,2377751.story

    I still say 24-10. If Edwards and Stallworth don't play, I might have to change that to 24-3.




  13. Re: Browns @ Ravens

    Getting closer to game time. I like the Ravens chances even more. Edwards was limited in practice and Stallworth is out. Just worry about Winslow and who will they throw to?

    I can't believe I forgot the coaching situation. Romeo Crennel might be the worst coach in the NFL. Wasn't he on the verge of getting fired last season? I think the Browns have weapons on offense but they have been bumped up a bit too much then they should.

    He might be on the hot seat again after his horrible clock management last week.
