    Don't forget last at the Ravens game Oct 19th, Paul Soliai got suspended before the game and Jason Ferguson left the game injured in the 1st quarter.

    Starks had to play NT, a position he never played or practiced at before. Our run defense WILL be stout this time around!

    And we didn't even have Polite on the team!

    I don't know if we can win, but I sure think it will be closer than it was last time around.

    We have to shut McGahee down and get in Flacco's face. Not just get in his face but hit him early and often. Play smart on offense and don't turn the damn ball over. And finally, no more stupid costly penalties

    Jones is 10 times better than Mc-GAY-IS-HE, we will stuff him. I can't see Flacco having the composure in his first playoff game. I think he throws 2 INTs and fumbles. Miami wins, 23-10.

    Its not Mcgahee I am worried about, its Mclain that has been pounding the rock the 2nd half of the year. Corral him and we have a great chance in this one.

    This is what real has me worried the fact they have Jalen Parlamee. You know they will be picking his brain.

    That's a great point and until now I forgot all about it. Having Fergie in there is huuuge for our defense. They won't run it on us like they did the first time.

    Now this is intersting.. i fully expect jalen to impart with anything he knows... after all.. he's playing to reach the Superbowl too..

    But somehow.. I believe we can win this game. That we can compete with anyone. Flacco doesn't scare me. sure their defense is tough.. but then so is ours.

    In the Miami heat.. and more Wildcat formations... we'll be scheming to keep their defense honest.

    Not going to predict a score because we seem to play up or down to our opponents.. maybe this is the week Parcells makes his pregame speech!

    that running game has made Flacco's life too easy

    if we can stop the run with 7 in the box, it will be a much different game

    It's not like we haven't faced tough teams before. we were right there with NE before we imploded... not that they kicked our butt..

    We aren't the same team. We have dealt with a myriad of adversity. We're ready.

    WHY NOT US!...

    I completely forgot about that. We were ALL OVER Thomas Jones yesterday. We had some trouble with Leon Washington, but the Ravens don't have any sort of scat-back that creates the matchup problems he does.

    Great insight, and you made my day.

    I am still fearful of their defense. I think we need to spread them apart. We need to get those linebackers in space and have our WRs / RBs / TEs make some plays.

    I hate the Ravens solely because of Cam. Other than that, I really have no reason to despise them.

    There's little doubt that Mia is a far better team than earlier this year. What scares me is so is baltimore, maybe more so. I'm still hoping though. There's just something about what's happening right now that it would be foolish not to believe.

    Our run defense did a fine job yesterday against the Jets. Schottenheimer didnt abandon the running game yesterday because hes an idiot, he saw our run defense was very good and he wasnt going anywhere. We should be able to keep their running game in check this week, and thats not good news for flacco.

    Exactly what I've been thinking as well. The NFL and ESPN commentators are doubting us based on ignorance and biases.

    They were not only doubting us against the Jets, but they were looking with a biased eye to the Pats winning the division. Thus why they predicted incorrectly.

    Now they are looking at what happened in the first game without realizing this very fact. We will no doubt be a better Defense "and" Offense...as Pennington struggled in that game.

    Pennington threw a pick 6 remember?

    Taking that away and a hot team at that? MIA will win.

    This and the T. Suggs pick 6 were the difference in the game. The Ravens will not have the same success running the ball this time and Penny is on top of his game. IMO, it will come down the QB play in this one. Chad will get it done.

    I have more reasons than that-

    1.They are really the Browns. I grew up in Ohio and took alot of crap from Browns fans for rocking the Larry Csonka jersey as a child.

    2. My ex-wifes family is from Crackmore and most of them love the Ravens.

    3. Cam Camoron.

    4. It may urban legend, but didn't they urinate all over our field during their walk through prior to us losing to them in the playoffs?

    5. Ray Ray and his dancing and "What time is it" nonsense.

    6. I hate the color purple.

    Curious - how do you think the on field banter will go between Lewis and Porter especially pre-game??

    The NFL should game wire both these guys for the fans added pleasure :)

    Magahee has been better of late, but i think we will pretty much shutdown the run on sunday, and force flacco into a couple of ints. dolphins win by 3.

    True, but on the other side, we had Smiley back then. Alleman (#57) had three penalties against a Jest defense that is not as good as the Ravens one. I still believe we'll win though, and against a pursuing defense, Henning should use more Wildcat passing plays (although both were drops against the Jests).

    He's not really a scat back, per se. But he's still dangerous. The fact that they can plug in McGahee/Rice/McClain/Parmele is reason enough not to let them get any momentum on offense.

    Jones isn't that good. He takes what is there, nothing more and nothing less. We just didn't leave anything for him sunday.

    if we could control the line of scrimmage on the defensive side with ferguson stuffing the run, we should be able to beat them, because then we force the ravens to beat us with flacco DO NOT SEE THAT HAPPENING

    I hope you are there in person to watch your team get demolished. Don't feel too bad, The Jets fans that said the same thing will keep you company.
