    Welcome to a new era of Baltimore Ravens football



    I thought our defense have played very well, but what about that offense.

    I don't need to tell you, I am so excited.

    Great offense
    Opportunistic defense

    That's all you need.

    Defense had most of us freaking the f##k out early on, but they got their legs eventually and turned into the unit we know. Ray and Ed too old? Two biggest plays of the game were the Reed pick-six and Ray's strip.

    The offense. Oh, the offense. I haven't been this excited about a Ravens offense since I made out with Todd Heap in a dream six years ago.

    SWMBO - She Who Must Be Obeyed! - actually sat with me for almost the 1st half giggling about how cool it was to see the Ravens offense playing like they were!

    I was stunned, to say the least....

    Courtney Upshaw really had a nice game as well. Forced the Ed INT and was stout in the run game. The D does have to improve against the run a little bit and those dink and dunk throws underneath, but overall they were really sound. Ray led the LB core, Pollard flew around, and the D got better and better.

    Flacco is just so improved. He really has grown a lot. I think if he keeps this up, we can go all the way. The OL was solid, Rice and Torrey didn't even get many touches. Just amazing. Leach was a beast tonight as always. Just a great game. I think we have the capability to go toe to toe with Philly and New England in two weeks.

    Lime-
    Good points, all.

    My summary comment might be -- The Ravens are not dominant, but in control. I'm thinking of how Manning dominated Pitt last night v. how the Rvens just methodically controlled the opponent this evening, leaving no doubt in the 2nd half as to the final outcome.

    This was the thing that struck me. The Bengals clearly gameplanned around stopping Ray and Torrey, to the point that we were running play-action after play-action after play-action despite the fact we were hardly running at all!

    And the threat of Torrey (made a reality on the first play, of course) kept them backpedaling and opened the everything underneath.

    It was just the THREAT of Rice and Torrey that we took advantage of.

    That looked like Arthur Jones to me, if youre talking about the pressure up the middle on the stunt who forced the early throw that Ed Reed returned.

    Edit: No, definitely Upshaw after watching the replay. My bad!

    Defense started to tighten up when the Offense made the Bengals one dimensional. Great win, but this team has a hard time stopping the run. Hopefully they get better, as soon as next week when they'll be seeing LeSean McCoy in their nightmares...

    Who didn't want to make out with Todd Heap after he beat the Chargers?

    I wanted to make out with Torrey Smith after the Stealers game last November.

    It was truly a thing of beauty watching the O tonight.
