We need Vonta Leach to push for Rice and Pierce.

(sigh) this is a very awkward but entertaining battle at the rb spot, can't lie though Pierce is a monster.

Im just saying that Pierce Playoffs and end of the regular season played much more better and was more effective than Ray Rice.
its going to be a battle this pre-season and training camp

Ray always fumbles in big games. He needs to seriously address that issue. Pierce is a fantastic replacement for Rice. He should be the starter.

If both can keep their egos in check this could be great for both of them. This will keep them fresher and healthier for the entire season.

It would be interesting to see Caldwell use them both at the same time every once in a while.

Now I'm in NO way advocating Tyrod for starter, but I think it would be awesome to see, at least in the preseason, Taylor running the option with Rice and Pierce in the backfield. That's just so much dangerous running potential right there. Just a fun little wrinkle to bring out now and again.

I find it funny that we talk about Pierce as a starter when he can't even stay on the field as a back up. Both of these guys need each other. We saw it in the SB, he takes 2 hits and is clearly shook. Wish we could combine them...

Pierce's hard-nosed running style was a perfect complement to the shifty Rice, giving the Ravens a true one-two punch out of the backfield.

"We are building a bully and he exemplifies that with his play and his attitude," Montgomery said. "He's a quiet guy, but he's still a fun guy, and I think his teammates really love him. They know when he's on the field that he's going to make something happen."

^ after winning a Superbowl (the ultimate prize) EVERYONE on the team should be happy with their roles on the squad. let's just keep working together for one common goal....winning the next Superbowl....back 2 back Champions! to do that...we can't be selfish!

I like the comment that was made by someone although i forget who, he said "Bernard Pierce is a poor mans Adrian Peterson", no he didnt say hes as good as Adrian Peterson (yet from what i think), but i hope we can lock him up until Rice retires!

Now thats the kind of attitude I want to see! He had a great season and I am thrilled to see him even more improved next season.

Thank God they started running him up the middle.

Nothing wrong with having 2 backs. That's what gives them both a better shot at staying healthy.

He already has. I for at least once in the SB for sure and I think another time in the AFCCG as well.

On the SB play, they lined up in the backfield together, Flacco motioned Rice out to the slot. It looked like Joe didn't get the look he wanted or did, but he checked into a run with Peirce

IMO Pierce showed enough to warrant a starting job and there's plenty of teams that need a real good running back and the ravens have some holes that need to be filled on defense weather they get a veteran or a draft pick to fill em I think they should move Pierce while his stock is soaring

They have different running styles, which makes it more difficult for defenses to stop them. Ever notice how when one of them isn't running well, the other one is. Glad to have them both on our roster.
