I like the Ravens where they are. All the odds are stacked up against us.
Manning's offense will give our D problems.
Their pass rush and pass coverage will give our O problems.
Denver's high altitude and the short week is a huge disadvantage.

No wonder, nobody is picking us to win this. Heck, even I wouldn't pick us to win this.
We got nothing to lose. Our season was raked with injuries. This is the perfect time to get a classic upset win. BAL vs Houston for AFC championship. Go Ravens!

Runs, swing passes and screens slow down the rush!

Then, when Joe has throwing lane for 7 to 15 yarders, good thins happen - when he must wait for guys to cover 30 to 40 yards, bad things happen!

Now that McKinnie is out of the dog house, I think we should do a much better job not only protecting Joe, but also open up some holes for Rice and Pierce.

I'm not going to lie. I'm nervous. Our backs are against the wall. Everybody thinks we are finished. Not even in a metaphorical sense, the world is actually against us. But I believe in Ray. I believe in our squad as a whole. That feeling after the loss last year still resonates in me. And I hope it does the players as well. Bronco's may in fact win this game, I cannot lie. But if we come out from the gate and play our brand of ball. Punishing run game, dominating defense, and efficient passing game. Then everything will take care of itself. What we cannot do though is come into this game scared. But we wont. I actually like the short week we have. The Broncos have been taking it easy the past two weeks. We have been out proving ourselves. We have nothing to lose, so lets do what we do.

With McKINNIE and KO on the same side... it is hard to imagine any team completely stopping the run... without committing extra people in the box! THat is when Joe will need to come through!

But I do think that we will be able to run on them this time around! McKINNIE and KO on that side will make a giant difference!

That is a pretty nasty combination adn with YANDA on the opposite side and VONTAE LEACH clearing the way... Hard to imagine the Broncos stopping our run for 4 quarters.

I think we grind them out with a ball control offense... limit Peytons touches and opportunities and keep them off balance with our TE's this time!

THey are susceptible to giving up big plays to the TE's and we can even utilize more crossing routes to continue to expose those safties...

I think we are looking at a very differnt game this time around!

You do understand that McKinnie is one of the worst run blockers in the league,right? Oher is the dominant mauler between the two.

lol... good point! I guess we just have to push the run to the strong side to start off and then later, come in hard with the blind side. I think Miller's supposed to be on the strong side anyway, from the reports.

Just a little side note, I guess this means that Jah Reid lost his spot.
[/quote] Hard to say, honestly. If he's still injured, we may have a position battle on our hands when the offseason comes around. But as it goes, you still need to develop the talent throughout and see how they do.

This new configuration O-line, with McKinne added and with Yanda back, I can't see how we won't be better than when we last played Denver. I certainly can't see how we could be much worse. All the talk of Flacco/Manning - this is where the game will be won, if we are to win it. Our O line will have to be stellar. Rice and Pierce (hoping he's truly healthy enough to be effective as he has been), behind this O line, will need to set the foundation for our play. Given that and given they protect Joe, the makings for a win will be in place. After that, Joe will not need to be spectacular, but just be efficient and mistake free in terms of turnovers.

For the rest of this season, yes, I would think so.

[/quote] I doubt a metaphorical "dog house" actually exists. I agree with the other person on this page by iluvpurple, this may have been the plan from the start.

[/quote]I think that as long as the 30-40 yard reception is the last guy in his reads, it will be fine. That's the problem with an endzone play, you're waiting for someone to get open, rather than looking shallow at various guys making breaks.

Hand Rice the ball, don't turn it over and let the defense hunt. We won the Super Bowl with that mentality and it can work again.

Maybe they were saving Big Mac for the playoffs and choose to rest him during the regular season

the o-line must be the aggressor and we must establish a running game if not than quick screens and slants will have to do till denvers defense backs off. please involve dickson in the game plan

I believe in Caldwell's ability to create a gameplan that helps neutralize the pass rush and avoids putting the entire effort on the shoulders of the O-line. The fact that I can say even that just shows how different he is from Cam.
