Default Indianapolis Colts@Baltimore Ravens

Ok guys, post your thoughts and commentary here on the first of the Divisonal game - Indianapolis Colts @ Baltimore Ravens.

Personally, im really looking forward to a real 'clash of styles' here - hard nosed, big hitting defense against a powerful, weapon heavy offense.

I dont think the Ravens will be poorly coached enough to stick completely with the run, even if it isnt working for the duration of the game.

McNair remains an excellent QB and should inspire enough from his offense to keep Indy from dominating T.O.P.

I can't imagine Indy having their own way with their finely tuned, timing based offense - a couple of big hits on Marv and Reggie ought to make them think twice about the quick slants.

Addai hasnt really proven anything to me this year - teams are scared of the passing offense the Colts possess and dont allocate as many resources to stopping the run.

His breakout game was against Philly, and outside the Colts themselves, it was one of the worst run defending performances of the season.

17-6 Baltimore

NM

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.

I think the Ratbirds will pressure Manning into mistakes. Man I wish they could both lose...

Rats win it 24- 21

I have to agree with the assessment thus far. I have to admit that I think that the ratbirds are going to be more than the Colts can handle. Wish it weren't so. Just my gut instinct.

the trendy thing is to throw out blanket statements like "the colts run defense sucks" and ignore the impact that corey simon and bob sanders wouldve had in some of those games, this year.

also trendy to say how the loss of james has taken firepower out of the colts offense. the colts have limped into the playoffs but the return of dallas clark was huge last week. unfortunately for them the loss of b. stokely and his replacement r. proehl takes away much of what they like to do. i think theyve lined up in the 3wr set more than any other team in recent years. the fact that they signed proehl shows what they think of their other wr's on the roster. if freeney can use his size, speed (hes giving up 9 inches to ogden), and leverage against the gimpy giant, AND hit steve mcnair, they have a chance to create a turnover or 2 that will probably be key to them winning.

look for both team to focus hard on shutting down the others TE's. im ignoring my brain and picking with my heart. colts pull off the upset.

Would i prefer that the Colts win ? Yes,.....but is that likely,....uhhhhh,....."not so much".
I think the Rats are just too strong Defensively. I do however think that the Colts offense won't be AS inept against them as ours was. So they have a shot if they can create some turnovers. And do the unthinkable (for them),......perform soundly against the Rats ground game.

Ravens win 3-0 and both teams bludgeon each other nearly to death

I don't think its going to be pretty played game. But I like the Colts and they pull out the close win in a sloppy game.

I think that the colts defense showed that they can play tough. I think that ratbirds are going to meltdown. I was looking at there schedule last night. I believe they played four playoff teams all year. There schedule for the most part was powder puff.

Well, I don't like either teams. But I think the Ratbirds (who suck out loud,) will win, but will eventually lose.

Ratbirds:17
Ponies:10
