    Ricky Williams and Chris Carr: Role players we need this weekend



    We have to pound the ball this weekend with the run. Pats give up 120 yards a game on the ground. They need to get a heavy load of Ricky Williams so he can hit the hole hard and get those tough yards. Look for him to spell ray rice a lil more than usually to keep our backs fresh and to wear and tear the pats defense down.

    Chris Carr is needed for his experience. he can play the slot for us and match up against their fast and quick receivers. I think covering those quick underneath routes the pats like to do willl be difficult for Williams and Smith. Carr can be a big help for us this week. This is a a game of match ups. im looking for these vets to step up.

    If Carr was inactive again it would be a real head-scratcher.

    I don't think we'll see Ricky as much as we did last week but he'll have his carries and perform as usual.

    Exactly. we have enough depth in these positions to rotate players in and out. We will need fresh legs.

    If I was Belicheck I would make sure to try to run early...they know we want to go nickel and dime so we are going to have to tackle first. My key is that Halioti have his A game Sunday....

    Accdg to Ravens Insider , Carr was a healthy scratch, presumably in favor of Gorrer? That seems like a ST call (IIRC Gorrer made a ST play).

    Carr will not help much against the big TEs, but can free Webb & Williams to work on TEs and the deep route WRs ( Branch, 'Stinko, Welker) and as you say can play underneath w/ shorter WRs and RBs. Haruki gets some snaps in pass coverage this Sunday, too.

    I know Rice has "earned" every down back and has scored this year from within the 5, but is anybody else willing to try a down of 5"10" 230 lbs. Ricky over 5' 8" 212 lbs Ray next time it's 3rd & 4th and goal @ the 8" line?? I know Ricey plays big but we can't not take 7 like that against Brady. Let's run outside the tackle down there w/ Rice maybe, or dust off the Rice option pass from Seattle/

    The last time they played the Patriots in the playoffs Carr had Tom Brady's number the entire game. IIRC he had a pick or two.

    Carr had an INT, So did Reed and Landry..

    Carr is still not 100% and is no where near the HITTER that gorrer is. Carr stays inactive to keep Gorrer.

    Wow go and look at the link and check out the WR that Joe had during that game. EEEEK

    Are you allowed to cut a tightends feet out from him at the line of scrimmage? If you can why not just take Gronk out that way every play would have to mess up the timing of patterns..... If not we need to def press him and all the receivers at the line of scrimmage.

    It's kinda the chicken or the egg thing- Are the ravens worried about the TEs or are the PAtriots worried about Suggs?

    Those NE TEs make it difficult to get a rush from the edge. Most DEs gotta hold em up, or get to Brady quicker than he can get it out.

    Haloti, Cody and Redding Need to get pressure up the middle...

    They'll likely both be active.

    Carr was down this week because Gorrer could be a back-up CB and play ST. They didn't need 2 back-ups at CB, because Houston wasn't going to be throwing a lot and they wanted an extra DT to be active to defend against the run.

    This week, obviously, is different.

    Thats the key guarantee it. Halioti Ngata can take this game over if he really wants it.

    Carr also had a pick against Brady last year in the regular season. Against a QB of Brady's caliber, experience in the defensive backfield counts for something. I'd be shocked if Carr is inactive Sunday.
