I'm sure we have plenty of trick plays left in the bag. I'm still waiting for the Heath Miller to Big Ben touch down pass.

Panthers game was perfect because if it failed, no big deal. So seeing that Wilson has the arm and making sure it can work is good on both sides. Plus like others said it makes the Ravens have to prepair for it.

Does no one remember last season? Last post-season more specifically. I didn't read all the replies, so someome may have made this point but....Last year we pulled that same play with randle el how many times? Well, at least five in the regular season and at least two in the playoffs...(including the superbowl, if i remember right...).

You're implying that we "wasted" the play when in reality, that play can be used every single game for years...because the truth is that no one can really defend it. Looks like a run, smells like a run...but ends up being a pass.

Sure, teams could modify defenses to defend that play, but then if they lineup to defend THAT specific play...all we have to do is do a regular run play and we're all set.


don't sweat it.
