    Why don't our media guys do articles on how the Patriots can slow the Ravens' offense? Why doesn't he analyze the Chiefs vs. Ravens game & tell us how the Chiefs held Baltimore to 9 pts.?

    seems like he thinks Ravens can put 12 or 13 guys on defense:confused:

    How do Ravens double team both Wes and Aaron without leaving
    other options in favorable match ups.

    For PatsDeb:


    Troy Brown: Keys to Patriots beating Ravens

    - Spread out the Ravens defense, and keep up the tempo

    - Fix the special teams coverage

    - Get back on defense in pass coverage, especially on the right side


    Curran: 'Ray Lewis is a liability in coverage right now'

    - Go after Ray Lewis in pass coverage

    - As opposed to what Peyton Manning did (get to the line quick and gesticulate), get to the line quick and snap the ball

    - Use Shane Vereen in speed mismatches

    - 188 snaps in two weeks for the Ravens defense; they could be fatigued

    Hm, Bedard doesn't at all talk about moving to a 2 RB formation with Vereen and Ridley, depending on if you wanted to pass or run more.

    You could pound the rock with Ridley and occasionally use him as a FB for Vereen in space. Or you could split Vereen out wide and hand off or pass and use Ridley as a pass protector in a blitz situation.

    The possibilities are endless. Woodhead and Vereen at the same time would be tits if Woodhead can play, since he'd probably be the one pass blocking.

    What Bedard stated was entirely accurate. That's EXACTLY what the Pats should expect to see. Hell, the Ravens HAVE to try and take Welker and Hernandez out of the game. The good news is that the Pats know this as well. They've had to play a lot of games without Gronk this season and a LOT of teams have tried to take Welker and Hernandez out of the game.

    Personally I'll be excited to see how Josh will attack what the Ravens will try and do. Lloyd and the RBs will get a lot of opportunities. Also I wouldn't be surprised to see Daniel Fells and or Hooman get a few targets this week.

    We've had a second TE on the field for the majority of the snaps in games Gronk and Hernandez have missed. To date, they haven't been thrown to for the most part. It wouldn't shock me to see one of the two #3 TE's have a "Shane Vareen" type game, out of the blue. Fell is a capable receiver, and the Ravens certainly wouldn't be expecting a guy who was a healthy scratch last week get any primary looks this week.

    Disable Jersey

    For PatsDEb.....

    Personnel package


    Welker
    Lllllllllloyd
    Hernandez
    Woodhead
    Vereen

    In a twist, put Hernandez in the backfield and the other 4 along the line. Baltimore wouldn't have any idea of how to cover that.

    So did bedard forget about Fells? Because I thought he was pretty ok in run blocking. Or what about the possibility of them bringing in another lineman to help the running game at some points.

    It's pretty hysterical how some of these media guys are acting like the Patriots have no say and it's up to the ravens. Like Brady going out and playing lights out is predicated on the ravens defense and not on Brady just going out and playing good.

    I think it comes down to how much faith one has in lloyd to produce if wes and hernandez are taken out . I think thats why one can be apprehensive. He has been good but somehow one cant be sure, at least Iam not.

    That San Francisco and the first Baltimore game should give optimism. He needs to play like that on Sunday.

    The offense just put up 41 on a superior Texan defense.

    The Ravens are not going to take out Wes or Ahern.
    I am even more certain of this than a Patriots victory
    And I'm fairly confident of that. :)
    (Errr....I better just stfu now.)

    Dont know about superior. Maybe more faster younger players but scheme was same all game. Ravens know how to disguise coverages and not give QB's early reads.

    I wonder how much the Harbaugh brothers will talk? Can Jim (or John?) get information from the San Fran game that could help?
