    Including most recently in the Divisional playoff earlier this year, when Baltimore kept the Colts O basically in check.

    Relatedly, how will BB use AD in this game - as a run stopper, as an edge rusher, as a Clark stopper, or all of the above?

    I believe he was repsonsible for the shut down in that game. Clark had 2 receptions, 41 yards.

    what a great question


    does anyone else remember AD in this game?


    All i remember is the Ravens blowing numerous opportunities and Ed Reed getting screwed over on a call when they said he was out of bounds.

    But the Colts offense was pretty much shut down all game.

    I don't remember much about AD, but I remember Manning looking terrible. He threw two interceptions where Ed Reed was standing and waiting for the ball. Then Peter King said they were "good" interceptions because they acted like punts.

    Game stats also have him with 8 tackles and .5 sack.

    He didn't do so well when Clark caught that nasty pass for a crucial first down toward the end of the game. Speaking of nasty, how about first and goal from your own one, with 9:15 to play in the half, on the road, in a hostile environment, clinging to a 6-3 lead?? How about responding with a 6 minute 64 yard drive? Can't believe he didn't choke there:rolleyes:

    I liked the old days when you could knock down that candy a** at the line of scrimmage. Now you can't touch him because you'll get called a flag called on you.

    You realize Manning threw what should have been two more picks, right? And Ray Lewis knocked the ball away from his own teammate twice?

    Nice try, but I was physically at that game and the Clark catch that you speak of was covered by Ravens' nickleback Corey Ivy, not A.D. Good attempt though to skew the details in front of those who might not know otherwise.

    This is true. I will add that Chris McAllister was in line to pick one off as well that Lewis knocked away from him. Don't know if that's one you are talking about or another opportunity in itself.

    Why do people refer to him as AD when his initials are AT.

    And I'm really not trying to be a wise bass, there have been several posts now that refer to Adalius Thomas as AD.

    It's A.D. because apparently that is what he has said to have preferred since being in Baltimore. Just the first two letters of his first name. I have also heard that it could stand for "All Day" like A. Peterson, but I don't know.

    Yea, I'm going to rewrite that. Ray Ray knocked one INT away from Ed Reed, and he also caused Chris McAllister to drop what should have been another INT.

    I remember during the game posting on ESPN how Ray Lewis was actually among the biggest reasons the Ravens lost that game, and it's true.

    His middle initial is D, so it's A.D. Thomas, and AD is what he likes to be called. This is from the horses mouth by the way.

    Clark only had 2 catches on 11 passes thrown his way. He was defended all day by Thomas, Johnson and Suggs.......The 2 receptions were against Reed and Ivy.

    Again, that is incorrect. Adalius Thomas himself said it stands for his first two initials. He likes to be called A.D. Thomas.

    That sounds right. I see you live in Baldwin, did you go the game Pat, just wondering?

    The thing about that is, A.D. can certainly cover, but Suggs really isn't known for that. He's more of a converted DE pass rusher. I can't remember specific plays, but if Suggs could cover Clark at least halfway decently, than you would think that the Pats could cover him with their current personnel.

    Is Phoenix (your name, also your location) like the neighboring town to Baldwin?

    No I didn't go to the Colts - Ravens game, just watched it on TV with friends and family. Talk about some disappointed fans. The Raven's really didn't show up that day, and they still kept Peyton out of the endzone......
