Veteran lineman Bobbie Williams also sat out most of the game and Ed Reed had a stinger.

I thought they benched Jimmy for his poor performances the past couple of games.

I liked the way the offensive line played with Jah Reid in there. Maybe that should be a permanent change or something.

It says a lot about our defense that we were missing our best D-lineman, our best CB, and our third best CB, our best LB, and our best safety and we still balled all day long.

So now people can quit saying the Raiders were short-handed, the Ravens were too.

I didn't realize that Williams started the game (as I missed the first couple possessions), so I thought Reid won the starting job. Regardless, it is so good to see him out there and playing effective. I've been worried about him, given we seemed high on him, yet (due partly to injury) we haven't gotten much out of him as of yet. Hope this trend continues.

It was nice to have the early lead and build on it to get these guys some rest and others some playing time. Great job today Ravens!

You gotta love these injured guys attitudes, not a selfish bone in their bodies,...they would play if the team needed them, but are glad for the younger guys to get a chance...this is a close knit team and it shows! All for one and one for all!

Go Ravens!!!

I'm really liking how a lot of the rookies and 2nd year guys are playing, especially today. Should give all of them a good bit of a confidence boost!!

First off the secondary looked much improved with Chykie brown in and Graham ,they seemed to work better together back there ,one thing i took note of was Palmer rarely through Chykie or Graham's way it was Mostly to Williams and Williams played pretty well this Game Hopefully that carries on to the steelers Game ,i also noticed with Ray on the Sidelines Pumping the team up its almost like he was still in the game as another man as i said earlier in the week Ray would be the man to go to if our def cord stunk it up again,anyways the complete shock i didnt see coming was Reid on the O-line how well he has come along to make holes that should be a permanent change and same with the D-line Tyson not sure why the guy was a 7th rounder ,but hes a Huge bright spot for the line ,and finally Upshaw picking it up ,i feel this team is peeking at the perfect time ,i keep hearing about the texans Game ,but you know what had that Game been played in Baltimore that Outcome is reversed ,so heres to hoping the steelers lose long shot i know lol but we can hope ,and heres to the bears crushing the texans ,being in Chicago is def Proabable ,,Go Ravens..

I guess we've just about maxed this game out. We won, we won deserved and comfortably, the way a Ravens-caliber team is supposed to win, we were good both sides of the ball, in spite of the injuries and the absence of players like Ray Lewis or Ngata, we had the chance to test some youngins in eral NFL action - and they stood up well most of the time.

If we had 2 good CB's it would be nirvana - but hey, you can't have everything.

For some reason, I just can't get past the thought that maybe this had so much more to do with simply a dreadful Raiders defense (secondary) than it did with us.

All I know is, it didn't seem like the actual pass plays we were calling were much different than most weeks, and our receivers and especially TEs seemed to be running free down the middle on nearly every play.

Mostly, I think the Raiders committee to loading the box against Rice, and Flacco started picking them apart with slants and TE streaks.

However, it just seemed like at times it was simply too easy, which makes it seem much more like a lack of ability on the defensive side instead of a great performance by the offense.

I'm hoping I'm wrong though.
