BALTIMOREFLACCO

Stars of the Game

46 posts in this topic

Shoutout to the following players:

No particular order

-Paul Kruger - Causes chaos all game and never let Luck be comfortable
-Danell Ellerbe - Played a great all around game. Coverage, pass rush, and run stuffing
-Bernard Pierce - Self explanatory
- Anquan Boldin - CLUTCH
-Joe Flacco - Continues to do great things in the playoffs
-Cary Williams, Chykie Brown, and COrey Graham - Clutch INT, and good coverage all game. Defending 50+ passes isn't easy and they didn't let up any big plays.
-Ray Lewis - Self explanatory
-Yanda, Birk, Mckinney, and Osemele - For the most part they protected Flacco really well. Oher....not so much lol
-Pernell Mcphee - looked like last year's Mcphee
-Vonta Leach - Did what he does best and scored a TD


Feel free to add anyone else

Boldin was spectacular. He was making separation and made some key catches to extend drives.

Torrey Smith, he didn't have the stats that Q did but he had some nice clutch catches and his downfield blocking was huge

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]I came in just to make sure that Torrey's name was mentioned. Sure, he didn't do much in the receiving game today, but he set Pierce, Boldin and Pitta up nicely today. That'll be something else that Denver's D is going to have to plan for.[/i][/font]

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]And Caldwell... really dialed it up today as well.[/i][/font]

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]Defensively... EVERYONE.[/i][/font]

I genuinely think we should start Pierce. I just think he's the better runner.

I don't agree even though I love Pierce, but it's a great problem to have

[/quote]he was better today, but lets not get carried away. rice is still the better threat as a receiving option

Oh yeah absolutely, but I just feel better about running balance if we have pierce.

But again, good problem.

Joe Flacco last 5 postseason games - 9 TDs, 2 picks. Andy Dalton and Matt Ryan's postseason careers combined, 5 games - 3 TDs, 8 picks.

Everyone on the Oline except Oher.
Osemele had one hell of a day. Put Reid at RT. See what he can do
[/quote]Oher struggled, but also was going against the colts best pass rusher in mathis. i was really impressed with how well McKinney played

And Next week vs Miller.
Then week after that vs Jones
Then the SB a horrible combo of either
Matthews, Aldon, Justin, Abraham, Irvin..............

Mathis was easy, these next few scare the hell out of me

The whole McKinnie thing makes sense if you think about it. During the season you always worry about his motivation. But in the playoffs with his window closing, you know he's got motivation.

McKinnie was solid today.

Different runners. Pierce is north south and just moving, while Rice does more dancing and is the better receiver and pass blocker.

"I don't agree even though I love Pierce, but it's a great problem to have "

8 times out of 10 people here forget the opposing defense is set up to stop Ray Rice before anyone else. It was the same last year when Ricky Williams came off the bench and had some good runs. "Oh lets start Rickey!"

Pierce reminds me of when we had had a feature back in McGahee then drafted Rice, one day Pierce is going to be the starter.

Random stat (courtesy of Rotoworld): Boldin's 145 receiving yards are the sixth-most by a WR at least 32 years old in post-season history.
