Baltimore attacked the middle of the field, picked up the pace and even ran the option.

It must be a delight to squander your life wallering in misery. As for me I just want to enjoy the moment. The new stuff plus the emphasis on execution makes Caldwell look brilliant along with the rest of his offense. GO RAVENS!!!!!!

It's too early to judge, but maybe it was Cam and the play calling that held Joe back. He actually looked comfortable in the pocket for once. He eluded pressures, rolled out, and even tried to scramble if I do recall correctly

Please don't get too high after beating the 2 Super Bowl winning Manning brother's defending SAuper Bowl Champs. Peyton still looms in Denver if we get that far. Calm down. The defense played adequately because our offense kept ELI-te off the field. It's a good win. We get a wild card at home where we have won one in a row. Rest up. Enjoy Christmas and approach the Bengals game as the last pre-season game before the 1st game that really counts toward the Super Bowl. Heal'em up. Let Hamilton loose with our 2nd tier players. It's more important to get as many guys as healthy as possible for the Colt game and Joe doesn't need to prove anything in Cincy. Merry Christmas Thank You Ravens!

I enjoyed watching Joe move around a bit in the pocket. If he can do that on a consistent basis we'll be fine. It just seems that everytime he takes a sack the momentum is lost.

Yesterday, the offense played with confidence and inspiration. They didn't have that gloom and doom, what do we do next aspect hanging over them. Flacco didn't play with a yoke around his neck. It took the offense one game to adjust to a more varied way of carrying out the game plan. If Caldwell had been the OC from game one, maybe the Ravens would have been top seed.

Even though they beat us up the game against the broncos really alleviated some concerns I had about matching up against them. I believe that if Joe doesn't throw that pick we win the game and if the Ravens from Sunday show up we win big.

axisofeeble: It wasnt the defense that kept Manning off the field it was the offense. They had lots of long drives that ate up the clock.
The first half of the Denver game the defense played like they did yesterday, but you can only hold Peyton down so long. The difference was the offense.

I would like to see defense play against Bengals the way it played against the Giants, it has pained me to see defense ranked 26 and now it's ranked 20, it would be nice if the defense could be ranked at least 15, I know rankings has really no importance, but still looks better then 20, and if offense could have position of the ball that long against Bengals the offense could be ranked better and a easy victory could fall for Ravens, and then Andy Dalton could realize he has beated the Browns and now the Steelers, but the Ravens he won't :)
