Cool idea! I didn't even think of that. Arians, are you listening...?

Thanks Preacher for the over view. I watched our 2 games against them earlier in the year over again, but didn't think to scout them again with the titans replay.

All I hear is they are tired and slow on defense. We need to just get up, by 11 early and take the air out of the ball.

if we can be up 21-10 at halftime, this one could be over. Especially if we can get the ball early in the 3rd and add to the lead. Make it a 2 score game, keep them at arms length and force them to throw the ball and count on the Rookie to win it.

Much like the Pats did to us in 04. They forced Ben to make plays and as a rookie, he made a couple key mistakes.

Exactly.

Remember, we barely won our game over the Jets. They outplayed us, but we were able to hold on for the win.

the EXACT same thing seems to be true for the Ravens this year.

Yep, Jets kicker missed an "easy" FG late in the game and we had to sneak by them. Pats came in and took away our running game (pretty sure Bettis fumbled on a 4th down and 1 carry in that same game) and then forced our QB to make plays. He couldn't do it, and was baited into one really really bad INT Pick 6 and that was all they Pats needed. They won by 17.

We can do the exact same to the Ravens, shut down their run early, get TDs and not FGs early in the game, have a lead at the half and then force them into an uncomfortable situation where they need their Rookie to make great reads and great passes. I say, he can't get it done.

Not in that situation, not this year.

But I WILL say this. Flacco is the real deal and we will be dealing with them for years to come. Kinda strange that the AFCN may have 4 of the top 15 QB's in the league in the coming decade.

Preacher, does that signature of Dr Phil have him wearing a PATRIOTS lapel pin? I didn't think that would slip by such a devout fan! You might want to get that photo shopped!

Any delay, draw, etc. that develops quickly will give space in the second half... again. TIRED>

We gotta stay disciplined in our Defense when pursuing the rush.
We're Pittsburgh or better know as Blitzburgh. Flacco won't stand a chance againest Harrison and Woodly

LOL you have a sick mind, I meant so we hold onto the ball, and the Vaseline so they can't get held on every play.
