I want to acknowledge, in the sea of negativtiy, that for the last three games it seems like Arthur Jones, Bryan Hall and especially Deangelo Tyson (even though Jones is probably playing best out of the 3, Tyson is especially impressive for a rookie) are starting to play like starters and establishing a solid rotation. So maybe that Ozzie guy isn't that bad.

That should never even be debatable.

The last 3 games they have played like they're supposed to. But since they're young I'd say they've been doing alright.

I can't wait to have McPhee back healthy

bryan hall busted through the steelers line on one play, which led to an incompletion. he seems to be a solid inside pass rusher. i like his quickness and upper body strength as a pass rusher.

Agreed, agreed, agreed. I like how Jones is playing. It's like he's playing for some money. I'm glad he has his chance to shine. Tyson has impressed. Same can be said for Hall.

Still, I am reluctant to crown anyone yet. I want to see them against the Broncos, who have the best OL left out of the teams we face except the Bengals. That will be the real test.

And where are all the batted passes???

It's hard to bat passes, teams have been trying to throw deep on us which makes it hard to batt down passes.

Ha anyone else noticed Art Jones starting to get pressure? he reminds me of Dwan Edwards during his last season here.

Yea just another example of a young guy finally finding his place and building that confidence. The same can be said for all the young players. I think we as fans just have become accustom to the dominate defense, that we feel like the Ravens should be able to plug and play. However it's not that simple.

Just look at the amount of new and young guys that are playing. Jones is really starting to flash. He actually got held on that Leftwhich TD, but it wasn't called. His pass rush is getting better and better as you mentioned and it's happening at the right time.

This guy has took a lot of heat, from seemingly everyone, but much props to Dean Pees. He's using a really nice rotation and i don't care if it's by force because of injuries or by his getting comfortable, I like it. Props to CB as well. He has these young guys playing with good leverage and using their hands more now, then at the begining of the season.

He and Tyson both have been solid lately. I paid special attention to Tyson this week, and he really does anchor well. Jones anchors well some plays, and other plays he doesn't.

Hopefully it's a coachable thing for Jones, and not something he can't handle physically. He should really be immovable with that huge butt and legs.

This is why we have to keep churning up the depth. Hall & DeAngelo is steeping up. Keep @ it rookies!

i like the rotation, give props to pees, he's doing a lot with less, unlike the other coordinater, but they need to keep this rotation with hall and tyson are doing pretty good and they will only get better,

He's a good bit heavier then Dwan, and as of late has been driving olineman off the ball. Dwan is a little quicker. Speaking of which Dwan has had a pretty decent career after leaving us. Didnt he have a spinal fusion or something similar that scared us off?

He's got 5 sacks, 38 tackles and 1 FF.

I hear he's doing well, he seems to be bouncing around teams though.

Every1 on the D-line is benefiting from Suggs' presence......One man army.....

Suggs is pretty much shut down 1 side and draws double team so every1 should elevate their game for sure.....

We all miss Lewis and Webb but Suggs is just too crucial to be missed.....
