WR Torrey Smith broke out after a quiet few weeks to help a resurgent passing game.

So much for the sophomore jinx. I really think that he's on track to be our number one receiver for many years to come. The next thing is for him to continue this next week and in the playoffs.

WR is the one position in which we have not drafted well over the years. I think that streak is over. At the rate Torrey is improving and the chemistry that he and Joe are gaining, we could be brewing one of the best QB/WR tandoms in the league.

I said it before and I'll say it again. If the NFL had viewers to vote for wide receiver of the season, I would undoubtedly vote for Torrey Smith because after his brother's death before the game against New England, he still found a way to not only play, but also still found a way to give his team victories when it mattered the most. Even the most important one that he dedicated to his brother.

With Tandon Torrey Tommy and Deonte the future at WR looks pretty good to me. & Alone with the TE's ... Btw Torrey had two highlight catches along with the great one by Pitta

This connection needs to be perfected so we can expect this every week. Use Torrey on a few more slants and let him do the work. He can't keep running verticals every play.

I would take Torrey Smith over any other WR especially for the long haul. He is such a level headed young man, who is classy, decent and above all humble!

I really think that they should continue to play the one-handed grab on highlight reels for weeks to come. That play was awesome.

I have so much respect and admiration for Torrey Smith! It is so easy to forget what this young man has been through in his life and to just see him as a football player. I hope to see him have a run as a Ravens as long as Ray Lewis has.

lets not put lipstick on a pig, 5 catches on 11 targets is terrible! he needs to refine his game alone with Joe.

That sideline, one-handed grab was freaking AMAZING. Torrey has become one heck of an NFL wide receiver. He's been much more than we anticipated, that's for sure.

Boldin came through as always as well. I hope his injury is not serious. He's Mr. Clutch...with Pitta.

They need to upgrade Torrey's "spectacular catch" rating on Madden for next year, to say the least.

Flacco pocket awareness was soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much better! He look totally different just by his presence in the pocket, more confident as well. Usually he has the deer in the headlights look, borderline scared to death to make a mistake. Yesterday he look as if he knew he was going to pick them apart!

Flacco sure looks a lot better when he's completing passes, esp. those long passes. I like the difference in the play calls this week, too. I hope we have another good game in a couple of weeks.

Nobody ever seems to talk about this, but when Torrey Smith has a big game the Ravens win.
