I always liked Palmer, I had hoped he would do better in Oakland but to be fair they don't exactly have a stellar... anything. Except a few here and there that team is a mess.

Oh well, hope we pick 6 him a lot

If Cincinnati always plays us tough, I'm looking for Carson to have confidence going into this game. Being a former Bengal, he knows he can be successful against the RAVENS. Will that translate into us getting burned??? Who knows, but one thing is for sure, he will be gunning for a big game and being confident about it. He might even be [profanity deleted] of the Walk next Sunday.????

Hopefully our D will find a way to at least keep these guys from getting the ball into the endzone. But it's time that Joey puts on his big-boy pants and earns his next contract.

As an old pro wrassler once said, "To be the man, you've got to beat the man." Well, outside of Aaron Rodgers, Joe's facing every man the game has to offer at QB in the next two months. Go be the man, Joe.

A stretch of Gunslingers coming and very little to stop the bullets with. They need a pass rush in the worst way.

Don't know how you, my fellow Ravens-fans are with this, but I found myself stopping to read and listen to what coach Harbaugh says about our players - because I know it's always going to be something good, something fiery - and therefore it has zero informational value, becasue it's always gonna be something good, regardless of how the guy is actually doing. I guess if a player had no positive play and a bunch of negative ones, the coach would still say he's a fighter, he's a great player, etc...

Rush four, no more than five and Blitz periodically and they will "SIMPLY" be Victories #7,8,and9! And, after all the dust settles Joe Flacco will be "The Last Man Standing"! I Fear No Team!

not necessarily. Even if we tie out with them, we'll only be one game up on them, with a much, much tougher schedule. The steelers will have no more (currently) winning teams to take on, while we'll scarcely have not-winning teams to fight. While they play v the Chiefs, the Browns (twice) and the Bengals (at home), we'll play v the Chargers, the Giants and the Broncos...

So, provided our form doesn't magically improve and real fast, I think we'll only have a good chance to win the division if we sweep the steelers.

And we'll need a completely revamped Ravens for that, I'm afraid. The steelers are in excellent form, we are in dismal form right now...

If the offense plays like it did in Cleveland and the defense doesn't get pressure on these guys it will be a long, long day. The best way tto defend against these guys is to keep the ball, RUN RAY RUN

BTW, we seem to have a new unsung and unnoticed hero emerging: Ellerbe the guy filled in for Lewis in an excellent fashion last season, and he's been doing that again this time.

Just keep it up, Dannell, we need that kind of performance baaaaaad.

Been saying it for a couple years now.....Pass rush is more important than a great secondary. It does not matter if you have an all-pro secondary, any half decent QB will find an open receiver if he has time. Unfortunately, we have not addressed that issue for the last few years, save for Sizzle, we literally put Zero pressure on QB's and if Weeden didn't plays so horribly, he'd have won last week. Pressure the QB, hurry his release, create turnovers....pretty simple formula that the steal-ers always use, and are always in the top of the defensive rankings.

as bad as our D is, it was a positive vs the brownies, but the offense is not helping our D in no way shape or form, i mean the offense is healthy none of their starters are injured or anything like that, so there shouldn't any excuse why the suk so baaaaaaad, the play calling is stubborn like the person who is calling them, no in-game adjustments whats so ever, the browns adjusted to Rice, but the ravens never made any adjustments , i mean come on, u dont really expect us to beat good teams like the Texans, pats, steelers with this lame offense??

Palmer was only a problem in a Cincy uniform. He doesn't have any tools to help win. Plus the game is home so we'll win. Now going out to San Diego is a different story. If history repeats itself we will be in for a long night against Rivers.

"Cary wants to do well so badly..." They all do when it's a contract year. So glad he declined the Ravens offer.

You can bet that those gunslingers will target Williams. Why is it that he has four? interceptions, but on most plays he never turns his head to look where the ball is? I find his play to be exasperating. He needs to get his crap together. Smith is not impressing much either. I miss Webb

carson palmer always makes me nervous when we play him. he just threw for over 400 yards and 4 td's against a hot buccaneers team. we need the pass rush to show up the rest of the season.

Greek has a point. Tampa has a respectable D, and Denarius Moore, and DHB, and Myers are all playing well. Don't sleep on Reece, or whoever they line up at RB, cause the new guy coming in is trying harder. This game should be a chance for our guys to put together some semblance of and offense, and hopefully get rolling before we do the tough Charger/Steal-er sandwich.
