I love Ellerbe. He's very flexible at what he does. He can come off the edge, matchup against any TEs/RBs in the league, play zone - basically, do everything you want a LB to do. He essentially single-handedly shut down Gronkowski in week 3, and will hopefully do so to Hernandez and their running corps tomorrow. Probably our best all-around defender.

Dudeman, You are indeed correct!

They are, however, a lot better with Talib at corner. Talib, from Tampa ,was the only trade made at the deadline he was brought in to sure up the defensive back field as he can hang with a #1 wr which let's them play man coverage and put more men in the box.

The only problem with that is the Ravens have two deep threats Jones and Smith and Talib can't cover them both!

I hope we are able to keep him and Kruger in the off-season. They are going to be our rising stars and I don't see any potential heirs to Ray Lewis in the draft. Keep promoting within.

As long as Ellerbe doesn't rip Vereen's helmet off within thirty yards of the endzone, I imagine he'll have a pretty good day.

@Dudeman, I like your viewpoints. In D, we were hugely disciplined last week. Scarce on the rush so PM didn't pass for easy short yards. Secondary almost invisible as they were policing the long ball. I've not seen discipline like that before, from any unit. We can win with it (D, O & ST) again tomorrow.

Go Ravens.

We need to watch Donte Stallworth and Brandon Lyold too.


Donte Stallworth has been on IR since his first game back, i believe he broke or highly sprained his ankle.

Patriots thrive on teams play zone defense and using formations and motion to get a guy open in those zones. Last year Steelers play tight bump man to man and dominated the Patriots. I hope the Ravens play more man coverage and not let receiver try to sit in zones. Bump within 5 yards and let pass rush get to brady. Key Welker especially on 3rd down. Must stop run so they can be in predicatable pass situations.

I just seen someone say do your best defense... like they lack confidence in the defense against NE. Do you not know that we are the 1 defense that literally gives Tom Brady FITS?? He absolutely ABHORS playing against us, and it shows in the numbers. Of course he's still Tom Brady. But he's the worse he can be against us. Him and Manning both. Our defense will pull through for us. And Flacco will again outduel him. No worries. #GORAVENS!!!

I have confidence in Ellerbe the Pats aren't that scary without Gronk just jam Welker at the line and he's out of the play they are 1 dimensional Denver was by far more complete

We've not drafted a LB high since Suggs. If you pick Upshaw remember he's no speedster at 271 lbs. With Ray Lewis retired who'll step into his shoes. There's only one fast, chip on his shoulder, tough, smart and has speed........ Ellerbe will be the future rest assured folks.
