    Re: That "elderly" Ravens defense

The guy started talking about how the Ravens defense is a "much older group" that is "not as dominant as they were, they might have trouble" etc. Why does this "the Ravens defense is old" lie keep getting rehashed by the National media? It's like they don't watch Ravens game at all because they would know with the exception of Reed and Ray Ray, JJ and Redding, the defense is young! Our biggest play makers this year are the younger guys like Ngata, Sizzle, Cody, Pollard, Webby, McPhee, and occasionally Smitty and Kruger. All these dudes are under 30, some under 25. It's just crazy to me. At any rate, this "old" defense was way up there in sacks, turnovers, stuffing the run, etc.
    Its because no one in the media pays attention. They hear something and just go with it.

    I remember when the Orioles' marketing slogan was "Come see the kids play". I actually took all the O's starters and figured out that the average age was over 30.

    But you are correct. The Ravens main playmakers this year are all young.

    Bottom line: we are a little older than the Texans. But the bye week should help make up the difference in performance (if there is any). I do hope Oz has a thick file on this year's graduating ILBs.
