I was glad to see some largely unknown players stepping up when they needed to. It was refreshing and I hope Chykie can really make a difference on this team. Goodness knows our secondary needs it.

I remember a few years ago of a cb that was young that started to get some opportunities and got better and better each week. Now he is a shutdown corner and the ravens clear number one when he is healthy. This guy has potential to be our next Lardarius as long as he can prove that this is a consistent thing and not just a one game performance.

Feeling great to hear our young players steps up..and understand the role in team. If OZZIE draft you, you must have something special, but need to polish.

Overall, I think he played well,as much as I saw. He didn't look good at all giving up that late TD, though. The coaches know what they have w/him. Best of luck to him and the whole team. Go Ravens!!

Even though his rookie season was a disappointment, Chykie has really shown something not just on defense, but on special teams as well. If he continues to play and improve like this, he has a bright future. Clearly the Steelers chose the wrong "C. Brown" from Texas last year, and we got the right one.

Great game Chykie!!!! Hey Harbaugh, if you play young players more it may not take a crisis to see what you have!!! Hope he continues to improve and gets the number two job!! Sad that a first round pick is still getting torched/can't stay healthy and is regulated to special teams.

I always seen the fight in him.... He doesn't make a lot of mistake... He is still young and now getting the chance... He has long arms which I like... Jimmy needs to get better on his football IQ. Happy for Chykie..

I think Harbaugh should try Jimmy at safety behind Ed. Because he seem to bite on the fake too much. At least he would have more time to correct his mistake and stop costing us first downs... He is big and could hit... What do have to lose because he ain't showing progress at all.

Chykie was very impressive last year in pre-season, imo, and I truly like him and his high potential. Maybe this is the opportunity he needs to prove himself. He has been playing very well this year, overall.

5'11" iffy at best. Let's see him cover AJ Green before Thomas or Decker from Denver out reach him. Jimmy Smith is more suited to that spot if he can beat out Brown. The pass rush pressure made our secondary look adequate against Eli. Can we generate a pass rush every week from now on? Rest and heal our defense. Cincy game is not important except as a tune-up for Caldwell's tweaks.

If Cary Williams play this year can refuse a Ravens long term contract then Brown must be another Champ Baily in the making.

What's the different Jimmy and Petterson corner back with the Cardinals.... The answer is night and day.. Jimmy has playedto his ability.. Coming out their draft on base on skills Jimmy was ranked higher. U can't wait for every for a player to come around... When u do that u kill other people carrier. U remember Kyle Boller?

Speaking of young players stepping up, I thought the practice squad linebacker Hamilton looked good on special teams. He had a couple of tackles. Let's hope he will get a chance to rush the passer on Sunday. You can never have too many pass rushers!

I think We need to let Cary walk this offseason. With Corey, Webb, Chykie, Jimmy, Asa, & maybe another drafted CB. We will be perfectly fine at CB.. Maybe even better

Its funny how people ignore Cary when he has a good game but get on his back when he gives up a catch. Cary has looked really good since coming off the bye week. He was great all last season. Yet people still hate on him for whatever reason. Doesn't matter though since he's still going to get that big contract he's worked for.

Our young guys are really starting to turn the corner. Upshaw has made his presence known and has been in on many plays defense/special teams. Chykie stepped his game up with a solid performance. Omar brown stays true with a nose for the ball. Adrian Hamilton looked aggressive and was flying around the field.

im so tired of hearing negativity towards cary williams, he gave a catch downfield which was the middle. cough ed reed cough, how many times have i seen reed go for the big play and gives up the big play and noone bashes him. everyone wants to bash williams who in doubt is our best corner and can shut down a lot of top no.1 receivers. and then u have the fans who say "I say we let him walk" Please be quiet.

I do agree with the fact that Cary Willaims gets too much negative press. He usually gets the best receiver and when the D-line does its job hes pretty good. His biggest problems is giving up on some plays and not seeing the ball. But I think hes still an asset.

Although I am not a huge fan of Cary Williams, I feel he has played better than early part of the year when although he was not giving huge plays he was staying 10-15 yards off the receiver and giving up all the short passes..

Last game's down the middle pass was more on our hall of fame safety.He was supposed to stay on top and CB inside. Instead Ed was 5 yards inside the receiver. May be he was trying to make an interception but that's not the way to play.

If he just gets better and more talented that fast, he could be probably be 2. cornerback. Lardarius Webb, Corey Graham and Jimmy Smith is really soem talented cornerbacks, but with Jimmy Smith not really getting any better he might be better off with special team atm. I think Cary Williams should be cut when the season is over he is a up and down cornerback. Maybe the Ravens could try and draft Xavier Rhodes he looks really promising and could fill in for Cary Williams if Ravens is not going to give him another contract.

[i]Once again i had seen this coming... After the Dallas game i posted that Chykie Brown was playing suprisingly well and especially in man cover, i thought he saved us during the last minutes of this game. And sunday He was the best player in the secondary period. I remenber during Dallas game the point i loved the most is that he always turns his head to locate the ball even when running at full speed and he never allow separation with defender or he close in very quickly. [/i]I'm also glad to read the Harbaugh's comment and the Ed reed's comment. On tape Harbaugh will ask him about the late TD allowed but i know for sure what chykie will answer: coach , i was alone, no safety help and i had to gamble , i thought it's gonna be a back shoulder pass and you can see i'm in position to make a play. it was 50% chance. And Coach Harbaugh will say : heck of a game son.

Nobody noticed but i also like the way James Idgebo didn't miss a beat since the loss of Bernard Pollard. He is a very solid backup and plays with a similar style than pollard.

And nobody noticed it, but on tape it's going to be ugly in the film room when they will rewatch the run Td allowed and especially how Ed Reed gave up badly on the play instead of shooting his gap. 3 years ago he would have destroyed the little RB and probably forced a Fumble... When you watch the 1st half bench view video, you can even hear him saying "this one on me" after the TD...

GO RAVENS GO!

We saw flashes of a Rookie Lardarius Webb in Chykie but then, inexplicably (at least to me) he went way down on the depth chart!

It's good to know that he's getting notice, at least by Garrett Downing for what that's worth,... but hopefully, the coaches will figure a way to give him minutes Sunday to see if he's the real deal!

We may need him, playing hungry and on the hunt, after this week's game!

Brown played great I believe Chykie was getting late first round consideration before he broke his leg this season he's sure looking like a steal

Cary's an "all-or-nothing" kind of guy! He plays too deep, then makes a great tip on a pass! Gets beat without turning for the ball, then deflects two deep passes! He's exasperating sometimes and a defensive gem at others!

But, he's not worth the $$$ to us he thinks he's worth!

Half of Peytons completions went to Decker! That was Carys man, 8rec 133yds 1TD. Johnson and Graham had to check their number 1 Thomas, 4 rec 13 yards!

Cary is our 4th best corner.

Webb
Graham
Brown
Williams and he wants more than 5 mil a year!
Smith

I have to say I like the young talent stepping up. I think once the legends hang up their cleats for good, the Baltimore defense legacy will continue with these guys.

GO RAVENS!

I've wanted to see C.Brown since he was drafted,he was known for his cover skills out of Texas but an injury slowed his progress and drop him down in the draft. His technique is way ahead of Williams and/or Smith, defense to me is when the defender is there to contest for the ball and/or knocks the ball loose or knocks it down... not being so far off the ball all you can do is tackle the guy and/or chase him after he double moves you out of position ala Williams and/or Smith with these two it's the same move just about all the time. Granted Brown did get beat late in the game but even he admits he got alittle greedy and tried to jump a route and still if you look closely at the play he realized his mistake as it was happening and still almost made the play,he didn't run with the receiver long enough and just needed to look for the ball sooner after he got back,I believe if he had looked back sooner he would have had a chance to knock the ball down,I mean when a guy could see it happening right there in front of him and react accordingly that shows the potential,that's a lesson learned the hard way,but he showed knowledge and/or understanding of what's going on,and here's where the safety could have helped out by getting over to cover the deep corner,if Jimmy Smith was a safety with his speed he could have possibly gotten into that area to help out,the 'Old' Ed Reed would have picked that one off!

Chykie has a decent nose for the ball but he lacks the speed to recover, maybe safety would be a better fit.

I was surprised at some of the guys, the way they stepped up amd played like Ravens. Brown played a good game I would like to see him on the field more. Those guys were great on defense for the first time in along time this season. Keep it up and continue to win..

Uhm...then what is your depth chart...i think that is a pretty decent assessment of the corners on this team...chykie needs to prove a little more, but cary williams has been a serious liability this year...well he does have 4 interceptions, but that is because quarterbacks had been preying on him for his big cushion and they got complacent...why does cary have so many tackles this year?...the easy answer is that most of the passes thrown his way are completed...dont get me wrong, I was singing praises last year when we were locking people down, but without Webb, Cary is looking horrible and maybe will find a change of scenery....i still think we should have matched that 12 million for 3 years that went to josh wilson, but then again im not an expert at running a roster and managing salaries

Lots of upside with Chykie. Hes definitely playing with maturity as of late. Williams...i still dont know how he let that bomb from eli find the wr. i cant wait for L.Webb to come back and slide back into the #1 spot. Webb changes the whole Defense. Either way, for a position that 2yrs ago was among the worst, we have a lot to look fwd too for plenty of years ahead. Get a legit pass rusher and things really get good in Bmore as a Defense again.

Corey's a great corner, but there's no where near that much separation in the talent level between him and Cary, they tie at 2.
and Chykie's an ok nickel, but if we had to stick him on the outside for any extended amount of time, we'd be screwed, we've already seen that. He's inexperienced AND a little undersized. Jimmy has been a little vulnerable to the deep ball, but other than that, he's head and shoulders above Brown, as is Chris Johnson. Chykie's sixth at best

Chykie seems to have played pretty well for the most part every opportunity he has gotten this season. He still young so there may be some lapses from time to time, but seems to be getting better all the time, glad we have him.

I was very impressed with the way Chykie played. I love seeing the young guys who doesn't get much playing time step up when the opportunity presents itself. Keep working Chykie...he could be the next diamond in the ruff or at least have the potential to be that. Jimmy better get his act together or he'll be falling further down the depth chart granted he's just coming off surgery but IJS.

There's nothing better than drafting a guy in the later rounds and watching him progress into an awesome player at his position. These days we tend to fall into the trap that all drafted players need to make an immediate impact. But when you draft for talent and coach them well, that's the name of the game (i.e. Kruger).

I liked this guy in college and I like him here too. He is a a guy who has been studying and working hard. He is a young webb in the making. I can see him webb doing some big things in the future.

I said on here weeks ago, he's got a lot of upside. Plug him in there over Smith. With this confidence, plus a whole lot of work in the offseason, him and LWebb21 could be a very solid CB combo next season. Jimmy can play #3 and start to earn back some of his #1 draft board status

I like what i saw from Chykie,really good man coverage,no double move slip ups like Jimmy and he seems to know the defense as a young player.Really want him at nickle to replace Chris Johnson who looks confused at times.
