      UPDATED: MESSAGE BOARDS CLOSING AFTER DRAFT   03/08/2017

      After careful consideration, we have decided that we will sunset our message boards after this year's NFL Draft. Since we opened our boards a decade ago, the digital landscape has greatly evolved. While we understand there remains a smaller group of highly-engaged fans who participate in conversation in our forums, a significant amount of the dialogue about our team and our games has migrated away to other social media platforms over the past several years. Our message boards will remain up and running through Friday, May 5th, and will be removed on May 6th. We recognize that this change may upset avid members of our community. However, we look to utilize our time and resources to focus on how we can best connect with our fans across an array of digital/social outlets. If you are not already engaging us and other members of the Ravens Flock on our Facebook page, Instagram account, through Twitter or Snapchat, we invite you to follow us on those channels and continue to participate in our social communities. In addition, the commenting feature on our website articles will remain intact. Members will be able to continue using their boards account to log in and share their thoughts at the bottom of every news story. We’d like to thank all the Flock members and our moderators who have brought thoughtful conversation to this space and made our community great for the last 10 years. Ravens Social Media Hub »

Very entertaining but fair look at Sunday's game

Thought this was pretty funny to read. Guy makes some good points though.

In his first argument he says to put Talib on Smith with McCourty coming over to help prevent his speed from torching them. Then he says to Double and bracket Boldin. Be funny to see 4 defenders being used to prevent 2 receivers from touching the ball. I like it, go for it!

[/quote]You've never heard of that before!? I could have sworn more people knew about the new fangled defensive scheme where you have 15 people out there so all options are double covered.

I didn't say he was a genious or anything. LOL But some of those ideas do have merit. I just thought it was pretty funny myself.

If Bill could find a way to have 15 men on the field he would do it.

[/quote]He lost credibility in my eyes when he said our defense was old. I'm so sick and tired of that overused and incorrect observation.

[/quote]HAHA I mean, he's right. All our weapons should be double covered but that's the beauty of it. Somebody is going to be one-on-one.

Double the outside recieivers? Go to the TEs.
Stack the box to stop the run game? Air it out.
Devote safety help to stop Pitta and Dickson? Go to Jacoby and Torrey DEEP.

Joe should be eager to get out there and show his stuff.

We saw a lot of it against Denver... Torrey and JJ wide and Boldin and Pitta in the slots. That's our best group and what we should be using most of the time IMO. Hard to cover 2 speedsters outside and Boldin getting a free release.

Didn't they forget Rice ran 83yd TD against their pillow defense on 2009?

Joe will dump off to Rice and let him work his way to the endzone.....

Lost in all of this is that we've beaten this team twice and been very competitive with them in every single game while running the Cam-fense. And now we have a lot more variety in the offensive gameplan with Caldwell running things.

[/quote]Cool.

Then we shall Rice and Pierce to death. (Unless the Pats cheat and use 13 guys on the field or something like that....)

[/quote]He (and other critics) are right in saying that our D is relatively old. Ray, Ed, Ngata, Suggs aren't getting any younger (or healthier)...

[i]HOWEVER[/i] - what they overlook or fail to recognise, is that they are attributing age to diminished play. IS our defense as dominant as before? No. But they're certainly not playing as bad as they have been in the middle stretch of the season.

HAHAHA

Did anyone read all the way through then read the Pat fans comment that attributed all the Ravens success to Belichick?

Now THAT is entertaining!

Meh, i don't think so. Suggs is only 30, and Ngata is 28. Obviously yes, Ray is 37, and Reed is 34. And those are the 2 I consider "old" because they are close to retirement. Pretty sure nobody considers Suggs old a year off being the DPOY.

I've wondered for a while now what the analysts will be saying next year when Ray's gone and Ed is either retired, still here, or somewhere else. Then we will probably be called too "young" and inexperienced. Smh.

Counting the officials, camera guys, audio guys and lip readers? Pssshhhh he's got AT LEAST 25 on the field.

We're getting written off again. Even Pete Prisco says so.

Oh well. I wish we get written off all the way to the superbowl; and even written off in that game. :D

This season reminds me so much of the 2000 Ravens. I really have a good feeling about the conclusion of this year. I hope it's right.
