    First, TJ Yates is not going to be converting a lot of 3rd downs. They're one dimensional, and the Ravens don't lose much to one dimensional teams that have to rely on the run. Second, Grubbs > Gurode, so I expect the o-line to perform much better than the first time around. There may be some tense moments, but I think the Texans are outmanned and outgunned.

    I don't think there are many Ravens fans that are over confident but most are confident.

    While you make a good point about the game not being put away until about 5 minutes left, the Ravens left a lot of points on the board. If they convert two of those FG opportunities to TD's then the score is 24-14 at the end of the third quarter or even better 21-7 midway through the third quarter.

    The Texans are going to be tough because what the game showed is that they had some opportunities that they just couldn't capitalize on in the running game and they got good pressure on Oher's side.

    To me the most concerning thing is our red zone efficiency. We have got to convert more of those into touchdowns.

    Plus we spotted them seven points with Flacco's fumble in the EZ after Gurode whiffs on a block.

    Just win the turnover battle, and there will be no concerns.

    Grubbs isn't going to let JJ Watt just run by him. At least not on every play like Gurode did.

    Joe really took a beating, even still he can't fumble. Some of those hits could've been roughing the passer.

    I totally agree with you, Dade! They hit him way after he had thrown the ball and if it had been Brady or P. Manning, there would have been quite a few roughing the passer penalties called!

    I'm hoping a more cohesive OL than in week 5 will reduce the pressure Joe felt in the first game.

    I am watching it now on NFLN.

    Not sure why so many of you are hard on Dierdorf. He's an older Chucky -- he basically loves everybody on the field no matter what team they play for. He also wont shut up about Rice.

    Have you ever heard him call a Steelers game?

    Of course. Same outcome.

    No. He talks about Roethlisberger and whatever injury he is supposedly dealing with the whole time. I don't think he dislikes the Ravens at all. I do think he is obsessed with Roethlisberger.

    I agree he's not bad at all. Shows love to whoever makes a play.

    I agree.

    He spreads love evenly when the Steelers are not involved. But when they are he's all over Ben's nuts.
