Anyone that says they are afraid of the Ravens, or that they are praying for us to have a chance, is getting banned. I already confirmed with @Chandler#81   You are fans of an 13-3 football

Hey y'all,   Ravens fan checking in. I've spent every couple minutes I get between meetings catching up on this thread (while I was waiting for my account to be approved - thanks!) and I'm s

We need to be aggressive early and put the Ravens in a hole. I don't care if the Ravens are practically begging us to run the ball. Pass it anyways. Force Lamar Jackson to throw the ball playing catch

If there is a type of snow that slows down Jackson without slowing down Diggs, Beasley, Brown, TreDavious, Edmunds, Milano, Hyde, Poyer, Wallace, Roberts, Taron, Singletary, and Knox then I'm all for it.


I believe a snow somewhere between snowman and sledding snow would be ideal. Not a Christmas morning snow, but a day-after-Christmas snow.  You know what I mean.

Is Edmunds fast enough to spy Lamar all game? Feel free to tell me that's a terrible idea, I kind of think it might be. 

He is fast enough just not a sure tackler. Same with Milano, our LBs do miss more tackles than I would like.

Why is everyone focusing on just Jackson in this game?  Edwards and Dobbins are the other two elements.  They all run the ball behind a behemoth of a FB.  Fine, keep Lamar in the pocket if you can on pass plays, but the Ravens run a lot of plays where Lamar stuffs the ball into the gut of both Edwards and Dobbins and then pulls it out for the keeper or leaves it there.  Tennessee had increasing difficulty figuring out whom to crash down on.  That run game with pulling guards and tackles is what makes them so potent.  Buffalo is going to get gashed all game long by this play.  The offense is going to need to out point them.  This has 200 yards rushing written all over it.  Watching the Tennessee game, Tennessee did a good job of taking away Andrews.  Best I have seen all year.  So Jackson found Brown mostly and Boykin somewhat.  The other thing I noticed was Tennessee left Ricard (FB) open in the flat and he made some big catches from there.  I get it, let the FB beat you rather than the TE or WR.  It's going to be an interesting chess match.

Not really understanding the worry. If the offense does its job (it should), they have ZERO ability to keep up.

 

I'd have been much more worried about Tennessee

 


When two teams with completely different styles line up, it’s hard to judge what’ll happen.

Another thing helping us this year compared to last year - our RB's have been vastly improved blockers, and our line as a whole is better at picking up blitzes compared to last year.

 

 

Good Point - I'd just like to add that Josh's understanding of his protection schemes (with audibles at the line in response to what the defense shows) has significantly elevated our offense as well.

I just did a slow watch of Titans - Ravens.

 

1) I always thought Tannehill was pretty good getting away from pressure but he's like a statue compared to JA. 

Compared to JA, he's immobile and the result was dink and dunk, along with Henry running into a wall.

Josh will extend the play and hit some big ones and there will be big plays to be had, for sure.

2) Shotgun > under center.  Pass, pass, pass.  Run only if Josh's arm needs a rest.

3) If Daboll calls an uber conservative game like Arthur Smith did, we'd run him out of town.

4th and 2 with 10 minutes left in the game at Ravens 41 and they punt.  Ravens eat up 6 minutes of clock.  No guts, no glory.

4:14 left in the game and it took them 2 minutes to get 10 yards.  They did their best to run out the clock on themselves.

 

I think we win by > 10.

Crazy note for this weekend: 

 

Average age of AFC starting QB’s: 24.5

 

Average age of NFC starting QB’s: 37

 

Crazy disparity in the landscape of young star QB’s in the league right now.

I wish we had Star.  I feel like the line is night & day without him, especially against the run.

 

Oh, well - I feel like our D has something to prove after the Colts game.  Hopefully we see a different unit this Saturday.

After reading that first sentence, I wish we still had signatures and the ability to put quotes in them

Edmunds was more effective against the run this year when he was playing at the LOS. His length advantage isn’t sacrificed against that TE short pass offense when he’s along the line either. It won’t be a surprise to see him up and holding one of the edges regularly against the Ravens. For the most part it seems our tackling issues have been against physical runners and not against finesse runners like Jackson who rely on elusiveness versus power. The Ravens may be almost tailor made for setting our D up for a good outing against the run.

Bring on the Ravens!

 

Three 2018 1st round QBs advance. It's young guns in the AFC and the old gunslingers in the NFC (except Goff I guess).

Mahomes is a year earlier.  All four QBs advancing in the AFC are 25 and under.

On a side note, if I hear the "I'm a little tea pot" commercial on WGR again, I'm going to lose my f***ing mind

Almost ALL commercials these days are annoying and awful. Funny thing is, there was a time when they were clever and humorous enough to overcome their built in annoyance. Seems to have infected greeting cards as well.

So long as the Bills score I think they win, but if the Ravens shut down Allen I can't see it.... considering the Ravens dynamic rushing offense and the Bills can't tackle.

They are healthy now. What about that game yesterday? That sure looked like an elite defense.

Tanny killed them in the first quarter throwing the ball.  Why the Titan's got away from that is the 8th wonder of the world.
