This is the first I heard of that but Tedy Bruschi said it on EPSN's webpage.

Mike: Another aspect of note with the Ravens is the usage of the no-huddle offense. That's a little bit of a change for them. The offensive line isn't a strong suit.

Tedy: And building off what we saw last week against the Cardinals with cornerback Patrick Peterson in the Wildcat (what they call "Pat-Cat") -- last season in the first quarter of the AFC Championship Game, during the entire TV timeout at 12:49, the Ravens had backup quarterback Tyrod Taylor out on the field. They wanted to see how the Patriots would react to seeing that. When the cameras came back, and the timeout ended, Joe Flacco ran back out because I don't think the Ravens liked what they saw. But it's still there, and with them seeing the "Pat-Cat" formation, maybe they use that a little bit instead of just having it as a ploy.

Did anyone else know this? Does anyone think we'll see any wildcat action with Tyrod this season???

I hate the wildcat. But I wouldn't be against seeing once or twice this Sunday. Something to catch em off guard.

I agree. Changing up the looks to try and catch someone off guard is always worthwhile but I don't want it to become something very common.

Yeah, funny how things like that happen behind the scenes. I really want to know why they backed out of it. Probably just didn't think it was the right time.
