    Forgive my ignorance if he played a lot of snaps, but I did not hear his name called once and saw Ninkovich/Crable/Cunningham out there on a number of occaisions and never saw him or heard him..

    Now, I was focusing on McCourty / Arrington / Chung / Meriweather alot because I wanted to see how they played together this week against a good group of receivers ...

    So I suppose my question is - why a drop in PT or drop in production...

    Directly related to Crable and Cunningham getting more snaps?

    I saw him, but I think Spikes and Mayo were busy making all the tackles :)

    Just wait for the participation stats to come out :)

    Mostly at RE on sub packages. I don't believe he played a single snap standing up in the 2nd half.

    This weeks scheme was all about collapsing the pocket and taking Flacco's steps away. So Tully got to rest a bit this week and Deadrick got to play a bit. In terms of schemes I bet we're one of the most very flexible teams in the NFL if not the most flexible.

    Tbc?

    TBC had no stats in the game's box score, I didn't hear his name called during the game, and he wasn't on the inactive list?
    What's up with that?

    Re: Tbc?

    Mike Reiss charted the game and had him playing 21 of 77 snaps, mostly as a rusher on passing downs. Ninkovich (58 of 77 plays) and Cunningham (57 of 77 plays) appear to be the top options at OLB.

    Re: Tbc?

    21 chances for TBC to make a play, with nada to show for it?
    Cunninghan made the Ravens RT look very average. I see him getting more time, and Tully less next week.

    He's not that good against the run. That's what's up.

    There is a mention in one of this morning's papers that it appears he has been supplanted as a starter by Cunningham.

    Re: Tbc?

    TBC is a 3rd down guy and that's it. He's a weak spot and Bill was visibly annoyed at him earlier in the year and had him riding the pine

    He's been supplanted by Ninko and Cunningham and dare I say it maybe even Crable

    Re: Tbc?

    What's the deal with Ninkovich? Clearly BB sees something there... he remains a bit of an enigma to me. Overachieving JAG? Or a Vrabel-esque guy with some upside?
