Am I the only one with this reasoning. I keep hearing people say that the Ravens D needs to be ready for the fast paste offense that the pats are going to have and with all the snaps the D has been on the field for the past 2 weeks its going to go bad. Wondering, with all the snaps they have taken and their lungs and body working like they did for the very long game in Denver. I wonder if their stamina/cardio/fatigue has been built up to play even better? Just wondering. Look at it as building muscle, when you work it out it tears/breaks down and comes back bigger and stronger (if you eat right that is)..Think About It

Put Rainey, in there if Pierce is hurt! Or Anthony Allen, I mean its not like there is a shortage of RBs in Bmore to help Double R. when needed! new england will be scared to death of anything Joe or Lil Ray do out there on the field! Anquan, Torrey and Jacoby will wear out the secondary by halftime! Oh yeah, Its Kool to run up the score Sunday! 7 TDs and a FG will be LOVELY!

It doesn't matter who is playing. Winners make solutions and losers make excuses. Go out there and bring home a trophy boys. We all know it's going to happen.

not at all. I'm right there with you. I said this a few stories back, but playing in high altitude can actually increase the volume of your lungs and increase the rate of exercise once you return to sea-level. Lots of high endurance athletes train in high altitude for that reason. Now I've read that it usually takes a couple days, and seeing as our boys were only there for a day...I don't know how much of a positive effect it will have, but I actually think they will be more conditioned.

[/quote] My view of the fast pace Patriot game is designed to take pressure of Brady whose decision making is questionable after taking hits. Their offense is made to take advantage of mismatches against predictable defenses. The Ravens are unpredictable and usually give the Patriots trouble. The Pats aren't use to playing physical teams and the Ravens are worn but stout with plenty of heart. All pressure is on the Pats where the Ravens by all accounts don't belong at this level. Games are won on the field and the Pats will have to win this game against a tough team unlike their usual weak divisional opponents the Jags, Miami and NYJets which is why their divisional champs the past 10 yrs. Injuries, penalties and turnovers are the winning factors to this win and the.SB.

deathonwings52....did you mean to say "fast paced"? instead of fast paste? We don't want the guys to be glued to one another with the quick drying paste. That would be some kinda yucky!

I think that we should let the Patriots fans have their fun in trash talking because we all know that the Ravens will let the game do the talking, and trash talk is so pointless and New England fans will learn on Sunday why talk is cheap. Lets go Ravens baby!!!

We survived without Pierce in the divisional round, but I think his presence is more critical this week. Pats fans seem to think no one can run on them. That's because people feel they have to throw, throw, throw to keep up with the NE offense. Caldwell has been calling very balanced games and has shown discipline to not abandon the run when we get behind a little.

The volume of plays our D has been on the field over the past 2 weeks could become an issue, if we're not sustaining drives. In DEN, against a better D, quick, long hits were necessary, because it was too hard to sustain those drives, but this week, we'll need some of those and Pierce can be a significant part of that.

Interesting story line about the brothers Arthur and Chandler Jones. Chandler the rookie for Patriots played well in his first 5 or so games but hasn't be a factor as of late.

I think this fast past Patriots Offense is going to be too much for the veteran Ravens Defense. I see the defense running out of steam in the 3rd qtr.

Don't get discouraged by the "Probables" list . . . Harbs is probably playing mind games with NE Coach Belisuck. All Ravens fans going to NE to watch this game please pay close attention to scoreboard and track our timeouts. We need to out NE's cheating history!

@Woodhead please stay on your bandwagon teams website instead of hanging out here, you won't find anything useful here you can use on your spygate mission before Sundays game.

I agree with you on this. The fast pace offense is also designed to keep defenses from subbing and forces them to stay in a base look. The advantage we have is that we played them often enough to know how to counter-act that to some degree. Not only that, but Ray knows the defensive playbook like he knows his first born and can get the D in and out of different looks quickly. A part of me wants to say they will do something similar to what they did against Manning, line up in a base look, wait for Manning to make his checks, and then come with an unpredictable blitz pressure.
