    Ravens will likely play it the same as 2 years ago - 4 man rush with man and zone mixed in behind. The difference in this game is they have Welker back and also Gronk is going to be a difficult matchup. They must pressure Brady with a 4 man rush like last time and get some INTs or strip the ball IMO.
    You may also want to consider that the Patriot O-line is much differen't than 09, it's easily top five in the NFL.

    Also interesting - in 2004 and 2007, when Brady beat the Boller-led Ravens, Suggs did not play in either game.

    actually it's not.

    -They ranked 26th in yards per run (4.0).
    -They ranked 10th in Qb sacks given up (32)
    -They ranked 11th in Qb hits given up (71)

    Not top 5 by any stretch... nice try again. Stats are a bitch ain't they?

    I think they will definitely mix in quite a bit of man... except of 3rd down when they bring nickel & dime packages in.

    I'm not one of the Ravens fans who blame the officials for all our shortcomings, but I am somewhat worried about how the game will be called from the standpoint of us being able to hit Tom Brady without being unjustly penalized. So hopefully whatever kind of pressure or hits we can get on him will not go flagged.

    Now go back and compare the # of Bray's attempts vs % of hits, sacks.

    To compare,

    Pats 612 att / sacked 32

    Bal 544 att / sacked 33

    Given they lost their starting RT, C for most of the year, and the LT & LG missed time? Pretty good.

    Air Coryell buddy, long routes take time to develop. Throwing underneath to TEs and Welker doesnt. not saying youre wrong but its not an apples to apples comparison.

    Keep the pressure on Brady and he becomes just another harried QB prone to mistakes.
