On third and short, lets pass the ball to get the first down. No need to chuck the ball deep when we are third and 4. I think Caldwell understands that more than Cam. I don't advise them running end arounds, as it can put you in too deep of a hole if the defense reads it. Just play our game and get Pierce, Rice, and Leach involved.

Eisebberg pretty much sums it up!

Cobra, I'd rather see screens or slants too and I agree that Caldwell won't get sucked into that "1-on-1 coverage so let's go deep" trap that Cam always gave Joe the green light to go deep on!

I believe that opponents figured that out and gave Joe E-Lite that look to get him to audible to a deep throw!

There cannot be too much emphasis placed on anyone, but especially Joe E-Lite not turning the ball over and also not going away from the run if it's rough going early on!

Field position is always key! We must with that battle to put extra pressure on the rookie!

Sometimes football is important too. I hope Sizzle take over the OLine and welcome Luck to the NFL

"You can be the King Kong banging on your chest"

Cant wait to see how many King Kongs on the field are gonna be banging on their chest after making incredible plays!!! I personally want to see another Jacoby Jones kickoff return TD or Punt return TD. I wanna see a lot of dancing, I want to see a lot of that "shoveling dance" the one that looks like they are triple scooping dirt out of the field. That has to be one of the all time great celebrations. (Just like #32 James Ihedigbo does in the inspirational video when you log in the site). This song by The Script will always remind me of this "troubled" season and more importantly Ray's departure. I tear up and have a knot in my throat every time I hear it. I think this is the 4th time in a row I play the song and video. :-( It sucks all good things must come to an end.

Joe needs a no-huddle run oriented qiuck pass offense to negate Freeny&Mathis's pass rush and Ray Lewis must out audible the schemes Chuck Pagano will surely inform his offense about. No one out prepares Ray Lewis............but Suggs is only a shadow of the 2011 defensive player of the year with his repaired Achellies and one arm and Cory Redding is a Colt so it's Sugar Ray surviving on "D" and Joe finally becoming a Super Bowl threat AGAIN like last year. Lee Evans? Billy Cundiff? Lee's go RAVENS!!

My 5 questions (and answers):

1. Will Ray Rice get his 20 plus touches ? ... Absolutely and Pierce will see at least 12...those two will combine for 250 plus yards and 2 TD's

2. Which Flacco shows up ? ... The good one, as in the Flacco we saw vs the Giants

3. Will M&T Bank levitaate as John Clayton of ESPN described ? ... No, it's going to erupt like a freaking volcano upon "The Last Dance"

4. What's the final score ? ... 37-13 We're going to crush Indy, period.

5. Will I miss Ray Lewis ? ... Words can't do this question justice. I and my fellow die hard Ravens fans are going to miss Ray like there's no tomorrow. The great thing is there will be a next Sunday vs Peyton, our next victim on the playoff hit list.

52 Forever !!!

We are going to wipe the floor with these guys. There is no way in hell we are loosing Rays last game at the House Ray built! M&T bank would get the best press if they changed the name to M&T bank presents Ray Lewis Field at Camden Yards. Flacco is home and will be running the hurry up. Rice is going to play his butt off in tribute to Mufasa. If we loose, call 911 becuase I may jump off a bridge.

Would be great if Ray could enjoy his last game (or 2nd to last in case Cincy pulls a miracle) at the bank as stress free as possible. They should put on a show, put on a football clinic like they did the first and last week of the season against Cincy and the Giants respectively. I say the last game of the season was against NYG because nobody really played week 17 for obvious reasons.

Would be great to see so many things.

1-Strong hungry defense, w/ lots of pressure up front. Hopefully some new blitz packages, surprises.
2-Great special teams play. Jacoby Jones for sure has choreographed a special TD dance in honor of #52.
3-Dominant offense- Lots of pounding the rock with both backs, lots of flacco running out of the pocket to extend plays, lots of short passes, slants, crossing routes, smart, aggressive but live to play another down mentality. If Rice gets stuffed use him more in the short passing routes, bang the ball with Pierce who has had more success running the ball when Ray gets stuffed.
4-Run up the score. As we will need to put up a ton of points in order to beat teams like Denver, NE, GB...
5-Oh-Line. Two words: Hold and Open. Hold the rush and open some lanes.

One last thing. Ray, almighty #52, enjoy it. You deserve it. I will be forever saddened I never got to see you play. But will be forever grateful of all the glory you brought to the city of Baltimore and its fans. You have set the bar so high that hopefully every future Raven draftee will aspire to be just like you: hungry, savage, relentless, determined and most importantly a leader. Tomorrow I will rock my #52 jersey with pride.

Yadayadayada....every writer tries to over analyze each game..Only formula is if we get Rice the ball in space, and if Flacco has a decent game. Really that simple.

I think we win and go to Denver. After that, I'm not so confident. But I love your enthusiasm!

To me there is only one question:
Will Joe Flacco play like Dr. Jekyll or will he play like Mr.Hyde?

In the past he has risen to the occasion in the post-season. Hopefully he plays like he is truly capable of in which case we are too stacked every where else to lose!

I rather go to Mile High than to Paytoiletville. Brady is gonna be seeking revenge and they will be coming off a bye week. On the other hand we will be going to Mile High in search of revenge. Either way if we want to go to Nawlins the road goes thru Denver and then thru NE (very likely). Let me correct myself the road starts at Baltimore, which should be our focus right now. Go Ravens!

I have a feeling the Ravens would be going to both places. The Texans aren't as tough as New England.

Foster had a total of 40 touches! Now that's how you feed your best player! If Ray Rice gets 25 touches I guarantee a win!

You know I've been wondering for a while why our starting d-line lineup isn't McPhee/Ngata/Jones. Those are our best d-linemen and Ngata is so much more dominant against the interior lineman. That's the one thing I kinda miss from Greg Mattison, he used to put Ngata at NT.

i don't want to play peyton manning. now we have no choice if we win tomorrow. we got to go to denver. peyton manning just owns us completely. i don't trust flacco and the offense. when we played denver a few weeks ago. are injured defense played very good vs peyton in 1st half. it was flacco and the offense who lost us that game. we picked up are first 1st down with a few mins left in 1st half. it was pathetic. are line playing at mile high will be even worst

You have to eventually play the best to be the best. If we get by the Colts(and we will) I look forward very much going to Denver and playing against the great Peyton. It will be a major challenge but it should tell us a lot going forward re: Flacco,Caldwell,Pees etc.With Norv Turner expressing an interest in returning as an OC then Caldwell may well be on the bubble as well as Pees. Go Ravens!
