  1. Re: Did the bye week make the Ravens offense a little rusty?



    cam makes the offense looks rusty because the offense never gets in a flow or rythm. Not to mention the o line was getting blasted all day.

    Eh, they always are either hot or cold. They could come out and look like they're going to hang 40 on a defense, and all of a sudden sputter out. We just have to hope they catch on fire come Sunday and stay that way.

    ^ This. It's always a balancing act between rhythm/momentum and rest when it comes to the playoff bye week. This year the Ravens had serious injury problems as well as routine wear & tear and fatigue. Ray does not have the game he had w/o a week of rest for his toe. Ditto Reed & shoulder, And imagine the game w/o Boldin? The OL laid some eggs but at least Grubbs can still push off and Yanda is closer to being able to stand upright w/o pain. My thesis is keep playing (rhythm), especially if you were scrapping to make the playoffs, unless you have key injuries that will benefit from rest(e.g. 2011 Ravens).

    It seems like they used to make great adjustments at half time but this year not so much.

    No, it was an average offense against a top shelf defense, pretty simple.

    Running a high school offensive scheme against an nfl type defense will make you look rusty

    I think in the Raven's case they came off a cream-puff bye week and played a team on an emotional high coming off their first ever playoff win. Coupled with the fact that Houston's front 7 is really good and well coached.


    We were lucky to advance.

    Agreed. Ravens took them for granted, plus they beat them already with Schaub made them take them for granted more. Ravens had everything to lose Texans nothing. Plus, sat behind Texan bench. The coaches and players were just screaming, "just let it rip" "stay on it". The defense was playing out of it's mind
    and carefee. Plus cold day, on raven side in the shadows while Texans where in the sun most of the game. I was practically sweating in the sun behind the bench, on the other side Ravens wearing parkas. Texans with helmets off and bare armed, the sun made a huge difference.
