    And now there's this ... Dean Pees telling our defense to "cut the crap."

    If you reflect on the schemes used in the games, they have become less and less of an issue. We wanted blitzes and Pees has blitzed more. We wanted press coverage on the outside and Pees has provided more of that.

    The players just haven't been executing.

    People always say that, but its really not that true. Yes, Ed does talk, but he has always been more of the silent type.

    Pollard and Suggs can get guys riled up and ready to go. Ed is also almost exclusively keying on the QB, so other guys generally call shifts and changes before the snap. McClain did this last year when Ray was out.

    More than that, if he is doing his job on defense then he should be invisible more often than not. Pollard, Suggs, Ngata...those guys have a responsibility to be involved on almost every play, be it making hard tackles, penetrating into the back field, or getting after the QB. Their play is louder, so their leadership is easier to back up play after play, game after game.

    As an aside, it appears as though Pollard is already becoming the mouthpiece for the defense. His answers have been appearing more consistently than other players. He has a lot of charisma, and is a born-Raven, as others have noted.

    Above all, I think that the team make up is such that every player knows his responsibility and is accountable for it. That makes them all leaders, IMO.

    Not buying any of this. Pees was squeezed out of N.E. because his defense was considered too soft. Pees may be intelligent but he's definitely not in the blue collar tradition of Lewis, Ryan, and Pagano. Had hoped he'd grown some ballz as a Ravens assistant but I clearly see that's not the case.

    Did anyone feel how bad that felt getting beat on by a soft Texas team. That hurt! But Pollard is right, Pees wasn't on the field getting man handled. Things better changed, cause Foster is a beast. He will fumble, and Pollard, Reed, and Ngata will get a couple.

    Stop Foster and get a 10 point lead, I got to believe this D can play pissed off for one more week and enjoy this much needed bye coming. I'm pumped to see this D try to get the run D on track.

    Ngata please hold up for this game buddy. You will feel better at 6-1 and a week to relax!! Raven Nation will too

    The biggest issue I see with the run is not scheme, but personell. Frequently, our ILBs get swallowed up in second level blocks, our OLBs fail to set a good edge, and the back cuts into the secondary. On top of that, a lot of our DBs try to arm tackle or swat at the ball instead of taking down the ball carrier, leading to extra gains of 5, 10, 15 yards.

    Pees can draw up whatever he wants scheme wise...if the DBs can't bring the guy down on the first hit, it's not going to matter.

    Maybe, but I still blame Pees for the Philly loss. We had an opportunity to give them the knockout blow when their center left the game, but Pees took his foot off the gas.

    I think offense should shoulder some of that blame too...Joe looks AWFUL towards the end of the game.

    I would hope the D is embarassed over their performance (last TWO weeks) and ready to re-assert themselves.
    anyone think they were overlooking the cowgirls and thinking about Houston? they say NFL players don't do that but I can't help but think that might be a factor.

    Too bad we won both of those games, eh?

    Doesn't change the fact that the D should be embarrassed. Hopefully, the Ravens, like any good team, doesn't reside to the fact that they won so nothing has to be improved upon. Our offense is inconsistent, so repeat performances like those games by our defense are eventually going to cost us games.
