    Do you wanna know why the Ravens don't run this offense on the road?



    Because they ditched it, due to 'communication' issues, only to resort back to their ever predictable 'run run pass' offense of old, which is what they've done for past three years (Every time they've tried to open up the passing offense, at least) EVERY TIME THE PASSING OFFENSE STRUGGLES ON THE ROAD. Instead of trying to tweak some things to fix the problems, they just go, 'Oh, Joe can't handle it, let's just run Ray Rice into the ground'.

    That's why you haven't seen this offense on the road. When they finally wake up and realize that Joe is going to have to throw them to a Super Bowl, they'll figure it out.

    By "they" you of course mean "God's gift to the ranks of NFL offensive coordinators!" "Waking up" and adjusting are not in you know who's vocabulary!

    Come on. The Raiders defense is shit. Let's not get carried away until we see a real pass rush, turtle mode or sack city WILL happen.

    That and the passing game on the road consists of outs and deep balls along the sidelines. Hopefully they realize they can use the middle of the field when on the road as well.

    The only time that they should honestly be hesitant to run this offense on the road is when they deal with a legit four man rush. Even then, they should have beat the Eagles.

    So you are saying the reason why we haven't seen "this offense" on the road is that "this offense" on the road looks nothing like "this offense" at home. I agree. But I am not sure your implication makes much sense. The idea that we need to suffer through 60 minutes of "this offense" on the road, even if it is going to cost us games we might otherwise win, and even if it is not guaranteed to ever look any better (i.e. our players are not up to the task), is very questionable to me.

    I'd like to see some slants and screens next week. Those two things will negate many things the Stoolers will try and it would definitely alleviate their pass rush.

    Is that asking too much?

    Way to downplay a 55 point victory and going 7-2 at home. I expect nothing less here though.

    Going into this game opposing QBs were posting an average QB rating of 102.9 against Oakland and that # is only brought way down because of a bad outing by Matt Ryan (59.4). Including Flacco today, 6 out of the 9 QBs that have played against Oakland have posted a QB rating above 100.

    That is why the offense looked significantly better today than it will next week when dumbass fans will surely once more be calling for Cam Cameron's head.

    That still doesn't really explain why dumbass fans who are so negative, especially about Joe, forget about pretty much all our other home games where Flacco looked like an all pro in most of them.

    Quick passes should negate that pass rush. That and screen passes.

    True. Against most defenses in the NFL you're not going to get anywhere close to the time that Flacco got today. On the first of those long TD passes Ray Rice made one of the great blitz pickups I'd every seen. Against a Woodley or Harrison it's not going to be Rice pancaking a blitzer. You can't take away anything from this game because it was at home against crap defense. There just aren't too many others as bad as the Raiders.
