It wasn't about faith. Few good teams get blown out by the same team twice in one season and a little birdie got in my ear and told me about the law of averages. They were on the Ravens side going in against
because he had beaten them often.
Sure, the Ravens will pay him, one way or another. Flacco is a polarizing player in this town but my opinion about him, and I assume the Ravens as well, hasn't changed. He is a good quarterback and should be paid in range of being in the No. 6 to No. 10, 11 or 12 in the
Caldwell had a plan, and he executed that plan. That plan drove most fans crazy, but it had a purpose. The defense needed to to be spelled in the altitude of Denver after a short week. It also had an effect on the defensive front of the Broncos because the Ravens wore them down. Rice had runs of 32 yards and 11 yards late in the game that led to scores.
is still the best offensive player on this team, and he needs to get the ball in his hands. As discussed in the previous question, the Ravens had to give the defense a blow and they were effective on converting third downs. The Broncos also went to more Cover 2 in the second half prohibiting the long pass. One of the ways to get a team out of Cover 2 is to pound the ball and force them to move a safety near the line of scrimmage.
Caldwell showed poise and discipline. Just enjoy the win.
Instead of going on the road Sunday to play in the
championship, they might have been playing it in M&T Bank Stadium.
Scott, the kick coverage against the Broncos was terrible. There is no excuse for it. However, this season the special teams unit has been the most consistent on the team. Hopefully they remember their lane assignments Sunday.
Also, special teams did not blow the Ravens' chance last year. The whole team let down. The defense could not keep the
from scoring late in the game.
could not hold onto the game-winning pass. Coach John Harbaugh did not use a timeout to allow Cundiff to get set and follow his normally routine.
Possibly. The word on the street is that Kruger wants a deal in the range of $8 million to $9 million. I am not sure that any team will give him that for one decent season. Kruger is an opportunist. He plays well against weaker opponents but disappears against the better ones. However, Williams has put together back-to-back solid seasons. After turning down a decent offer from the Ravens last offseason, I am sure Williams has hopes of cashing in the way Ladarius Webb did last offseason.
I have no idea why the Ravens would use Ed Reed in that situation. Jacoby Jones is the
return man. I know
has had a few nice returns during the season, but I believe in dancing with who brought you. Jones should be doing all of the kick returns.
Thanks for the opinion, those are normally saved for talk radio, though. But there is a reason Jerry Coleman of 105.7 calls him "Red Light Ray." When the cameras are rolling, it's show time at The Apollo.
The last few seasons we've seen teams that peak down the stretch reach and win the Super Bowl. The Ravens seem to be on that path. The word destiny is getting thrown around by the team. How can you not think that the Ravens can make it to the Super Bowl? However, the Patriots are also playing extremely well, and quarterback
has been there and done that.
My dream, though, is still alive. It would be awesome to have a front row seat at the press conference for
