    Re: Ravens / Cowboys



    No Ravens fan is giving up. Come Saturday all you will hear from me is how we are going to crush the Boys. Until gameday its all about the stats and matchup and situation. All of which dont look good. On Saturday, none of that matters anymore.

    Re: Ravens / Cowboys

    As a side note, just read this on ESPN....The Ravens are the best D at shutting down a teams TE and second best in shutting down a teams #1 Receiver. How anyone decides these stats is amazing to me but this means that Romo and Patrick Crayton have to beat us.....and Crayton is no Reggie Wayne.

    Maybe we ought to just forfeit the game and declare Dallas the winner since we have absolutely no chance anyway.

    Nice thought, Roy Williams is their #2 though, and whilst he's still no Reggie Wayne and is prone to the dropsies, he's eminently capable of handing out a whooping to Frank Walker if Washington can't go.

    Yes, forgot about him. Well maybe he can have a big drop like Braylon Edwards did against us.

    Edwards drop may have single handedly put us in the position we are now.

    You and I could whoop Frank Walker.

    It's just about reality here. Pittsburgh ran a lot of underneath on us successfully last week, and apparently Romo likes to throw to Jason Whitten. So expect to see them playing over the middle a lot because the safeties are going to be out on CB help all game. That is going to open up TO and Williams to the outside. No way in the world Frank Walker hangs with either of them.

    I'm going Cowboys 28, Ravens 20.

    Maybe its from Football.outsiders.com who ranks us best vs TEs and second vs 1. Wr.

    Anyway TEs this season vs Ravens:
    1. Titans: Scaife and Crumpler 9/87 and 1 TD.
    2. Second Browns match: Heiden and K2 7/89
    3. Phins: 6/96
    and
    4. Raiders: 3/61
    and
    5. Eagles: 4/29 and first Steelers match 4/33
    and then close to nothing....
    The other nine games max 2 receptions, and fewer yds. from the TEs. Including first K2 game, Cooley, Utecht and kelly, Texans and Giants, Dallas Clark, and the last Steelers match.

    As I can see it Crumpler is the only TE, having a TD against us.

    So there you are Witten, not sure you will be a factor, but TO and Williams.. shit. if we can get rid of their runninggame, we migth have a lot 5-6-7 DB plays, I hope.

    Damned I really hope Rex Ryan and Fab W and our secondary is ready, if that is the case, we win easily. Not sure Cam, Flacco and our offense can play any worse than they did the last game.

    You could not beat Frank Walker in a war of words using a dictionary and the internet. He would beat you down at the line of scrimage like you were trying to steal. The man may not be a "shutdown corner" or even a starting corner, but unless you are a starting NFL wr, he is going to shut you down even if Peyton is pitching you the peel.

    Your sense of reality is really really funny though. The Steelers sure did carve us up on the one touchdown they almost got, but the reality is, they got one drive all day. The Ravens are not going to lose if they hold the Boys to 13 points, and Frank Walker or not, they are not getting 28.

    No one was talking to you Jeremiah. Certainly not me.

    You are void of reality, but we all know that by your constant joke posts. Well, jokes to us, rational thought to you anyway. You apparently slept through the part of the Steelers game where Ward got 107 yards receiving on only 8 catches.

    Please, for the love of this forum, stop talking football. You know just enough to post on Scout. In fact, you'd fit in well over there. Check them out, you might like them enough to just stay there.

    Re: Ravens / Cowboys

    Surprised to see the usual homers not giving the Ravens much of a chance in this one.

    Cowboys are a good team by today's watered-down, parity driven standards (or lack there of) but to think the Ravens don't have a chance is ridiculous.

    If the Ravens don't turn the ball over they have a great chance of winning this one. Romo is good but not Manning or even Roethlisberger good. If the Ravens can get to him early they can rattle him he will makes bad decisions. Ravens defense has a chance to score some points in this one...lord knows the offense can't with out the D's help.

    Ravens need to load up the o line and run the ball.

    You are correct, Billick's Ravens could beat the Steelers. What's the guru Cam's passing offense ranked?

    I found it for you. It's right around the same place it has been the last 8 years..right above all the teams the Ravens beat this year. That's some pretty nice company Cam is in. Or maybe it's the talent?

    The usual homers? LOL, coming from the anti-homer. Most everyone here just expresses their opinions on how a game might turn out, instead of waiting to find out what everyone thinks and then offering a completely different view. Classy.

    BTW, just because someone predicts the Cowboys will win doesn't mean that they aren't "giving the Ravens much of a chance." They are just saying if they had to pick a winner, they'd pick the Cowboys, which isn't exactly crazy since they are four point favorites. But that doesn't mean they think the Ravens don't have a chance of winning.

    JW,

    Your predictions are been in the Ravens favor every game. That fact alone suggests the level of reality in which you're operating. If the Ravens were as good as you suggest and predict, we'd be undefeated and well on our way to the SB.

    I am all for a little homer-ism, but there is line between that and just being silly.
