Hello everyone, First I hope all of you are having a great holiday period.

It all started on sunday night, when we dominated the Giants, at home, and really put on a show against the reigning champions, plus we didn't have serious injuries.. That was great !

I wanted to share a couple of plays with you this week. First on defense, I decided to focus On Ed Reed this time, especially after hearing all week long he didn't deserve his pro bowl spot. Then on offense, trying to dissect the 78yards by Bernie P.

First on defense.

On this play, it's 2nd & 9, we have Nicks outside, Cruz inside, on the left side there's two TE's with Bennett inside. Reed is 9 yards deep but he's backpedaling and ready to take his deep zone.
Posted Image

This is just before the snap, Reed is now 15 yards away from the LOS. Ready to cover the deep, but the fact that Nicks is going to run a quick inside route is going to make him change his mind and man up on Victor Cruz
Posted Image

This is supposed to be a "magnifique" cover 4 but Reed is going to leave the deep to take care of Victor Cruz deep inside route (you can see as he sees Cruz going low to cut, he's already re-attacking), when some safeties would just stay there like "okay no one's coming into my zone."
Posted Image

By re-attacking so quickly, he put himself in a great position to make a play, I like Ed's gambling even though sometimes it doesn't pay(watch next play) when it pays, it pays !
Posted Image

Broken up !

Second play

On this play Reed was supposed to bring safety help to his corner, but right before the play it appeared the two said something to each other, maybe assignements ?
Posted Image

As the receiver leave his stance, Reed is going to start backpedaling deep, but Hixon is going to do a double move, and Reed is going to bite on it, so is Chykie Brown. I guess what Reed told Brown before the play was probably "I got the short route".
Posted Image

Hixon does his move, Reed reattacks, but so does Chykie.(miscommunication?)
Posted Image

Definately a miscommunication, look at both of them :-)
Posted Image

Underthrown, props to Eli Manning.

Third play

On this play, we're going to play another sort of cover 4 with corners and both safeties taking deep coverage, the ball is going to TE M.Bennett on a deep post route, and again Reed has an oppurtinity to make a big play and get the ball. I don't think there's a DB that creates as much oppurtinity to get the ball more than 20.
Posted Image

Even though he took a little too much time to re-attack inside because he also had the outside receiver running a fade route, he still got an oppurtinity to make a play.
Posted Image

A little late but the ball went through Bennett's hands and seemed like Ed didn't believe and probably was thinking tackling.
Posted Image

If he caught it...

Fourth Play

On this play, the corners are lined up in man to man coverage, Reed is controlling the deep.
Manning is going to try to connect with Hixon who's going to run a post route.
Posted Image

As Hixon cuts inside, Reed re-attacks, and Manning is going to throw a little behind his receiver(yellow points) which is really what allowed Chykie Brown to make the play. I remember the broadcaster saying it was a ball thrown behind which is why Hixon couldn't catch it.
Posted Image

Yes it could've been a better thrown ball, there's also a bigger risk if you throw it a little further and it's dropped again or just over thrown. What I'm saying is, Manning saw Reed on this play. I'm maybe being too artless right here :-)
Posted Image

That's it for the defense guys. Now let's move on to the play I chose on offense.

On the 78 yards run by Pierce, It really was great blocking before being a great run (no smoke without fire). The play was a delay type of play, Flacco is going to drop back like it's pass then hand it off to Pierce, the two reach blocks by Yanda and Birk are crucial, so is the amazing block by Leach on Blackburn.
Posted Image

Great job by Yanda and Birk on the reach block, now here comes Leach.
Posted Image

This was close for Yanda but it's all about execution, and this was perfect ! Blackburn going head to head with Leach, great idea.
Posted Image

Also credits to Bajema, for blocking Keith Rivers with ease. Pierce is suddenly one on one with the last defender Who is going to take a poor angle.

Rookie Jayron Hosley made the tackle...
Posted Image

Hosley, the one Torrey was waiting to come hit him instead of going at him just like Q does. Torrey owes a TD to Bernard lol I know it's far from easy :-)
Posted Image

Sunday was a mix of the new era ravens offense and the old fashion ground and pound ravens offense. I loved every seconds of it, still some things to fix of course but really a great win to rebuild momentum going into postseason, I'll always have confidence in this team anyway, even if they loose 5 in a row or plus.

I hope you guys are having a great holiday period, I'm going on a trip on monday so I won't be able to breakdown other plays since I won't have my devices(I don't even know if I will actually be able to watch the playoffs) :-( but I will still be online here to follow every news ! I'm sorry if the pages are slow to load because of the pictures.

Slim.

You know, at first I thought these threads were just filled with flash pictures and "recliner quarterback" talk... but Slim, you've done a very excellent job with these. I think I'm going to become a regular in reading these articles.

Would someone at BR.com get this guy a weekly column, please?!

The weekly analysis is much appreciated, Slim.

Can we request certain plays? If so, I'd love to see a breakdown of the long completion to Pitta.
