It feels great knowing that both will be game-planned to get many more touches!

I am confident in a resounding victory tomorrow, spearheaded by our run game!!!

The Ravens are the 19th ranked defense in the NFl. Stats mean nothing. This is the playoffs.

"You can't do the same thing all the time against any team in this league, because if you do they will shut you down" Caldwell said. "We have to be able to mix it up a little bit of run and pass and change the pace a little bit."

Anybody else started crying tears of joy after reading this?

Rice and Pierce will both top 100yds again because we no longer have pass happy Cam Camron to hold the running game back. The game we had against the giants is how we should perform from here on out into next season. Nice run-pass balance where Ray Rice and Joe Flacco can have nice numbers.

Run the ball to open up the play action pass game. BUT do not stop running the ball. OH sorry Cam is gone no need to say that;-) We will run the rock!

Sleepy I do not care if the O has 200 yards total of O. As long as the Ravens get the W. That means the D is playing great.

Pierce has been a beast lately, I hope he is 100% come gameday and embarrasses the Colts defense. I would love to see both Pierce and Rice running for over 100 yards each. I think Caldwell understands the importance of our run game.

My first thought on this article was one that I have read all this before and we never take advantage of the other teams weakness. Then I remembered Cam isn't here and I actually got excited. We might actually attack their weakness in a strategic way.

Hey Diddle-diddle..................did we do too little? Rice signed and Joe hanging with no contract for next year. With Bernard, a rookie looking like he too could have been a steal. The Ravens go as far as Joe can take them. Rice&Pierce can be stopped with 8 in the box so Joe must throw the "run" open. No huddle run oriented,short quick passes with Caldwell abandoning the tweaked Cameron "statue" in the pocket bombs away game plan. Joe can go long off play action but only if thge run threat is combined with Boldin,Pitta,Rice ball control short paSSES mixed in/. Easy......HUH? My recliner allows me all those options and I've only been sacked less than 1/2 as many times as Joe and I don't ever get Caryized by their WRs. Gett'em Ray-Ed GO RAVENS !!

Cam's problem was, that he wasn't creative with his own play book. In those select instances, when he actually was (like for example the Bengals game) we succeeded easily.
The answer to our inconsistency problems is (in my opinion) more dynamic and less predictable play calling.
Cam went pass happy this season. It didn't work.
Last season he loved to run the ball (we know the run-run-pass drill, right?). It didn't work.
How about we realize, that we have a great QB AND a great RB and use both? Sounds good to me.

Shame to know Pierce won't be with the Ravens for too long... He's simply too good to be a backup RB... I'm afraid he'll be gone once he's a free agent. Rice is probably still be in his prime at that time, so, i guess Pierce is gonna find a starting spot somewhere.

Hope like he'll I'll prove to be wrong.
