Chills in Charm City. Flacco has something to prove. Goodell relies on Lewis. Don't get ripped off.

OK, Mike Florio...that was incredibly stupid. Don't quit your day job. Oh, wait, maybe you should, actually. You suck at that too.

Why do Prisco and so many others keep saying "aging defense"? Ray Lewis, Ed Reed and Suggs are the only guys 30 or older. Am I wrong that? Either way...they're a very young defense.

Mike Florio reminding me why I no longer go to his website - seriously, haven't been there in months and my life is practically better for it.

Playoffs are just around the corner, this is crazy. Been a long, up-and-down season but the Ravens are once again atop the AFCN and hosting a playoff game.

NFL Films analyst Greg Cosell says of Joe E-Lite "... the nature of their offense doesn't allow Joe to improve on his weaknesses. I think they ask him to be a deep drop passer and you could argue that one of his main issues is he doesn't have great pocket presence. The longer he's in the pocket, the less efficient he becomes."

In my opinion he's partially correct! He hasn't developed the footwork to extend plays! When he's waiting in the pocket for the deep patterns to develop he's susceptible to getting stripped, intercepted or sacked!

But that was Cam and there's a new Sheriff in town and Caldwell won't let Joe go deep as inconsistently and meaninglessly as his predecessor!

For the next four games its going to require all of Ravens Nations effort, from the owner, GM, coaching staff, to the players and the most important element, the fans. So, cheer until your vocal cords tear. Stomp your feet until the foundation cracks. Put your hearts into it until you dont feel it beat anymore. When the clock ends and the win goes to Ravens Nation dont acknowledge it, face forward to the next challenge of the path to the Lombardi.

''It doesn't look like they get him a lot of easy completions. There are great throws and great catches mixed in, but those are individual plays, not scheme plays.''

Sometimes I think the exact same thing ... hopefully that was because of Cam and is going to change soon!

Ray has given this organization and the city of Baltimore 17 years of pure dedication, desire, and will. We all owe Ray 4 games in respect for everything he has done for us. A handful of games for 17 years...No excuse to not deliver a Lombardi this year!!!

When Brad Keselowski-- the reigning NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Champion, named Ray Lewis as one of his sports inspirations I knew right then that Lewis' character not only transcends the NFL but virtually all walks of life of the vast audience of the NFL. It is a shame that Ravens' detractors (I hate the word "hater" because it appears emotionally dismissive and devoid of any form of introspect) use the incident in Atlanta in 2000 as fodder to smear the man. If you must bring up the arrest and the double homicide, at least be factual. If you trust that the system got it right by arresting and detaining Lewis, then you should trust the system all the way by believing that he was guilty of nothing beyond obstruction of justice. Despite what you may think, in life you can't have it both ways.

For the true Ravens fans and football fans at large, let us celebrate the end of an era, the dawn of a career of seismic impact in the NFL. You remain a legend Ray, farewell.

Caldwell will call more plays to the strength of Flacco instead of trying to force him into long balling all day.Flacco along with Caldwell will come out with a nice mixture in the game plan.I'm feeling all Super Bowley already,getting chills just thinking about it.

I couldn't have said it any better,roamingcharges.Instead of checking out the facts,people love to assume.Ray learned what alot of youngsters learn,be careful who you call friend.I wish Mr.Ray Lewis all the future success he can handle,especially with his family.God Bless.

The negative comments regarding Joe Flacco even after he has proven himself year after year with playoff wins is becoming tiresome. Joe proved last year that he can get to a Super Bowl but in the words of Gizzel, ( Tom Brady's wife, after he lost the Super Bowl - "Well, he cant pass the ball and catch it too!" The funny thing about that statement was that a dropped pass is what got Brady to the Super Bowl to begin with.
Fans need to behind the Ravens 100%.

I wish this game was over already. *LOL* It has been a horrible week. Between the jarring and TP'ing of my cubicle this morning, I'm ready for it to be over. *LOL* Regardless if we win or lose, I just want it over at this point. *LOL*

The good thing about this Flacco assessment is the fact that Caldwell figured it out in no time: (But in Caldwell%u2019s second game (vs. Giants) as the offensive coordinator, he struck a balance between the run and pass, called plays at a quicker pace that also allowed Flacco to get the ball out quicker and utilize the middle of the field more. The offense notched a franchise high in yards.

It was only one game, however, and time will tell if Caldwell%u2019s tweaks will help Flacco in the playoffs.)Looks like we really needed the Cam change after all. This week, we play a team who's run D is suspect (the Indianapolis Colts). Should set us up perfectly. Go Ravens!!! :)
