Really love to see Ellerbe and Dickson back for the Redskins. Gonna be a helluva game and we're gonna need everyone as healthy as they can be.

There were a lot of plays recently against the Steelers where players were left wide open. Hopefully another week can mesh this new secondary unit and Ellerbe can help shore up passes over the middle.

I we can not afford any more injuries (at least on that side of the ball)
Ellerbee has played great.... hope he is back soon!

This is huge, Ellerbee has been such a great fill in! So good we might not be needing to draft a inside linebacker this year. Well at least not for a starting role. (depth is always important as we are learning from this year lol)

One thing that concerned me last week (witch proved right) is concerning me this week too, were playing another team with there backs against the wall. The Skins are going to come out fighting and if we dont match that mentality it might not be a very good week for us again witch is the last thing I want! Also hope Ellerbee gets healthy soon!

I think someone paid the Raiders not to release Rolando McClain. With the injuries we're getting a LB, it would be nice to have that cat in our pool of LBs to choose from.

that's y i said if we play like we played vs pit, we would be lucky to make the playoffs as wildcard, the remained schedule is tough and not to mention the QBs, and they're all fighting for playoffs spots or better seeding,

That Morris kid rund hard. We better practice some takling. That fore are shimmy dive at the shoulder stuff wont work. He runs hard and they run a zone blocking scheme very well. We have to be disciplined and wrap up. They dont do anything fance. They are just effective.

The lack of Offense that was supposed to have a "Break out" year has not helped compensate for a battered less than stellar Defense that we fans are used to seeing.

Don't get me wrong, I love Harbs as a coach, but his freaking comments drive me nuts.

%u201CI thought the run defense was really good" Really?!? That's funny, because I thought is was atrocious at times.

Harbaugh said "FAKE SCREENS" drew us out of coverage. Silly me, is that something Cam can do on Offense? Just sayin...

If a player is consistently not on the field, what good is he? This is not a put-down on Ellerbe, but we see less of him that more.
I contend that it is finally time to draft a MLB within the first 3 rounds in 2013. BTW, I would also like to see the defense also addressed high in the next draft, with a selection along the defensive line since I do not think Cody and McPhee have contributed consistently enough. (Granted, I know McPhee has dealt with injuries.) A lack of pass rush with always kill the Ravens.

Big ups to Ellerbe. He plays like a Raven and he's not a diva when playing through injuries. Pay the man

We need to sign Ellerbe to a long term deal!! the only thing that worries me is that he has trouble staying healthy.When Ray comes back I'd rather see Mcclain come of the bench and leave Ellerbe as the starter!!

I like this Guy since day one! He's all over the field! Tackling their backs will always be a problem because they are 230lbs! MINIMUM! DUH! Heath miller will make ALL our Linebackers stand on their tip toes when dealing with him! And I feel the Ravens spread the defense a lil too wide sometimes! They will fix it, in time for the Run!
