This is my biggest concern as well. We've had pass protection problems against everybody we've faced this year, and the Ravens' D is by far the best we will have gone up against. I am also remembering the 9-sack outing they had against us last year. Ben must get the ball out quickly.

The Ravens had better get their lockerroom in order.

The Ravens have always been good at playing against the steelers because of their tough run defense. This year, I expec the same. However, I also think that after last year's embarresments, the O-Line will do a much better job of protecting Ben on passing plays and that we will have a more sound game plan. Run and Pass for 1st downs, control the ball, keep their D on the field as long as possible with a few shots deep to Holmes (we seem to take those shots every game now) to keep the secondary out of the box and look for the big play. The biggest difference this year, will be Our Defense vs their Offense. No Lewis to worry about, that punk from Buffalo doesn't worry me as much as Lewis' hard running style did. Our D should get a couple sacks this year early, put their QB in a pressure situation and keep them running for their lives most of the game. I expect their punter to get a lot of work and expect us to win by 3 or more field goals. Maybe 26 - 17. Something Like that.

IMO the blitz packages may return unless it is Cover 2 for the forseeable future - Cutler had the ability to escape and Palmer had the WRs that the Steelers decided to blanket with coverage.

McNair & Boller are not going to run away from anyone and the banged up TE is the biggest receiving threat. Turnovers will decide this street fight.
