Chargers 24 Ravens 14

I never like my team when they have to go cross country. I think it was the 49ers game a couple of years ago everyone thought we'd win by a ton and I said something like 13-10 Ravens, and everyone thought I was crazy and the final score was 9-7 Ravens.

Ravens tend to suck it up big and give huge passing days when they face a vertical passing team, which is why the Colts are probably the toughest team the Ravens could possibly play. I just think the Chargers will outscore us tbh.

That's pretty much what I'm worried about as well. We saw the Chiefs drive down the field with passing plays last game, and they are nowhere near the level of the Chargers in terms of their aerial attack. I voted Ravens in the poll (because I'm a homer and it just feels wrong to vote against them), but this will be a tough game for us.

I don't see the Chargers getting any running going and we will force them to pass it all game. I think our defense will come up big in this game. I am calling Ed Reed's first pick of the season and Suggs 1st sack. I say we win 20-17

If the Ravens pass coverage improves and they also get some more pressure on Rivers, then I like there chances. The run game will be shut down, that's almost a given, so we all know Rivers will have atleast 40+ attempts. Lets pray Foxworth and Washington hold there own. When the Ravens have the ball, I think they should come out passing, and pass to set up the run, it worked well against the Chiefs and Flacco just looks so in sync with the WR's. I'm calling for Ray Rice to finally score his first NFL TD and I think the Ravens and there physical style of play will outlast the finesse Chargers.

If how they played against the Raiders D is any implication, I wouldn't be too concerned. San Diego's O-Line is banged up and they will most likely struggle with the pressure. It won't be a blowout, but I think the Ravens should be able to out physical a team that's coming off a short week.

At the same time though if we are basing off last week the Ravens defense didn't look all too great against the Chiefs who with Croyle at QB probably is the worst offense in the NFL.

I think the fact that they put up 24 is a poor reflection of the defense. 7 points were from a blocked punt, and Derrick Johnson's INT gave them a really short field. They had one real drive for a TD and one for a field goal.

RAVENS/WIZARDS/ORIOLES
09-16-2009, 01:28 PM
Yup. I don't see us getting another punt blocked this week. Flacco might throw a pick but it is going to be hard for ANY team score on us. If we put up 20pts we win.

The Chargers starting guard and center both have injuries and might not play. If they don't, I like the Ravens chances.

I really wasnt impressed with the Chargers on Monday night. Andto boot, LT may not play. Trust me I know, I own him in the NFLDC extreme league :(. All the reports Ive read suggest he may not play. I say the Ravens take it, maybe by as much as 10 points. The only guy I would really be worried about is Gates, but I feel if Rivers tries to split the seam with Reed waiting back there it could end badly for him.

The Colts part is true, but the Chargers will be missing their starting center if not one of their starting guards too. LT McNeil hurt his ankle or something similar on Monday too, but played through it because the Chargers didn't have any other active lineman. The RT Clary isn't a great player.

And Phil Rivers doesn't have the pocket presence of Peyton Manning either.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not a fan of the Baltimore cornerbacks. Well I guess that's not true, I am a fan of them, speaking as a Colts fan. ;)

But the Ravens' pressure on Rivers will help cover up for that, I think. I expect the Ravens to completely shut down the Chargers running game, with Ngata and whichever big boy is next to him in the middle. That will make the Chargers one-dimensional, which allows the defense to pin their ears back and try to break the QB in half.

Obviously the Chargers will be trying Sproles screen passes all day.

I think Cameron should give them a taste of their own medicine, have Flacco pass the ball to Rice and McGahee over and over. Those two should have 50 touches combined. Keep the passes short and efficient for Flacco, although if the Ravens OL can keep him clean then maybe try to extend the field.

I think the Ravens win this game.

Is it just me or would anyone else rather LT plays.

He doesn't scare me at all, and if he plays it takes touches away from the guy who really to me is gonna be the reason the Chargers win....Darren Sproles.

Ravens1991
09-19-2009, 02:09 PM
LT is out, it will be a good game, I believe we have what it takes to win. But a cross country road trip is tough no matter what and we have to play a elite team like SD. If we can get pressure on Rivers we should win.

I agree completely. For the Ravens defense it is a back like Sproles who can really break our containment because of his quickness. With the Ravens D I never worry about a power back but it's those quick shifty backs especially catching out of the backfield which can tear the defense apart.

BmoreBlackByrdz
09-19-2009, 07:23 PM
yeah, I totally agree, remember how much trouble Chris Johnson caused last year in the playoffs? Hopefully they can contain Sproles, if not, I hope Cam Cameron runs the ball and dominates the TOP, cause I hope, no, I pray they try and keep Sproles off the field as much as possible, he's the only thing on that San Diego offense that scares me. I'm not too worried about Rivers, cause his o-line is banged up.

-side note-
these guys won't play
Jamal Williams (starter)
Nick Hardwick (starter)
Travis Johnson (would be starter)
Ladanian Tomlinson (starter)
and maybe even starting Guard Louis Vasquez may not even play.
also, starting Left Tackle Marcus McNiel has a sore hand, but is listed as probable.

Look's like San Diego is the banged up team this time around, I just pray Harbaugh gets the Ravens ready, and Cam Cameron pounds the football and goes to the old school offense to take care of San Diego,
physical >> finesse

as for defense, Greg Mattison better start blitzing more, cause unlike Croyle, Rivers will tear that secondary apart if they can't get enough pressure on him.

09-19-2009, 08:05 PM
With Jamal Williams going down, I'm really starting to like the Ravens chances. Although he wasn't much against the Raiders he is still (I think) their best run stuffer. It feels weird to say but I think that our offense won't have much of a problem with the opposing teams defense, in any area of the game.

That game was far too close my liking... second week in a row that I've felt this way. At least our pass rush looked somewhat improved, although that's probably the result of dropping the vanilla play-calling.

Our pass defense was pretty atrocious (Fabian in particular, he got taken out for Walker late! Now that's embarrassing).

just a side note, Fabian was actually hurt.

my thoughts-

negatives-
God dangit, our pass defense is absolutely terrible. I blame most of it on Mattison and his lack of calling more blitzes, the more Rivers was pressured, the worse he did, that goes for any QB. (look at the Jets game) He should have been calling blitzes every other play, the Chargers WR's are all 6'+ so it doesn't matter how many guys are in coverage, those WR's could just reach up over our DB's. I can't believe we didn't blitz more, jeez, San Diego was freaking missing 2 starters on the o-line and had a hurt left tackle in McNeal. there were some other little things I didn't like but the pass D was certainly the big thing for me.

positives-
Running game was great, Rice wasn't all that great but McGahee picked up his slack and had a tremendous game. Joe Flacco continues to impress me as well as the o-line. That group has potential to be the best in the league, and is probably in top 5 consideration. I think Heap will continue to be a HUGE factor in the offense if he stays healthy. Run defense was great, and my god, Ray Lewis, YOU ARE MY SAVIOR! Also, nice job by Hauschka, making that clutch kick to force the Chargers to score a TD.

questions-
Why hasn't Paul Kruger dressed out for the past two games?

Is Chris Chester the starting Guard now? because he has been taking all the snaps with the starters, and Yanda only comes in on unbalanced line packages.

Ravens1991
09-20-2009, 07:33 PM
I agree the issue is our CB are giving up 4-6 inches in height and 30-40 pounds. That is why I wanted Cmac back so bad, he has the size to handle a big WR. something everyone on our team doesnt have

EdReedUnstoppable
09-20-2009, 09:36 PM
I agree R1991 I mean Foxworth couldn't have been covering Jackson any better, but Jackson is 6 inches taller and 60lbs heavier and just outmuscled him for the ball.

He is a totally worthless garbage player with no real impact at either defensive end or linebacker. And now the Ravens are realizing it more and more with each passing day. It should have been Michael Johnson instead of that worthless pile of **** Kruger! Great pick by the genious.....

Well that's kind of by default though. The fact is that Mason and Clayton are the starting receivers. And I don't care if he's our young stud he can't work the middle like Kelley so he shouldn't be getting reps over him.

The highlighted ones are the only ones I would of chose before Kruger. What would drafting Shonn Greene have done for us? Our backfield is crowded enough as it is, we couldnt even keep Peerman on our roster. And Nate Davis, really? What good do the Ravens get from drafting him? Hes like a much much worse version of Troy Smith. I do agree that there were people who were better choices for the Ravens the Kruger, but you are getting pretty ridiculous with that list.

Beaty would do nothing for us, same w/ Vasquez. I would have considered Smith Gilbert about Kruger. But I still like Kruger as a player, we can mold him to a Pryce replacment or keep him at OLB. He has the motor of McCrary. Granted the guy may never lead the NFL in sacks but he can be a very good contributor to the front 7.

You're the only one who shares that opinion. He was starting all preseason with Suggs out. He got sacks and pressures. I don't see where all this hate comes from.

Yes, a 6'3ish 200+ corner would have been nice, but if he doesn't fit what we do it doesn't matter. At the time the coaching staff felt like he wouldn't fit on our team.

Please don't ever insult Rey Maualuga like that ever again! He is more of a Ray Lewis clone, sideline to sideline can shut down a running game with his vision and passion and strength! He is not a guy who can't rush the passer, misses tackles and loses his head, and runs his mouth and thinks he's better than he is like Bart Scott.

First off to call Maualuga an immature turd is ridiculous.

I'd also like to know why me wanting Rey Maualuga suddenly makes it that I dislike something Michael Oher's done.

IMO Rey Maualuga was the best defensive player in this draft. A leader on the field who is fiery and plays with controlled passion. The guy IS a Raven, all this "play like a raven" ********, he plays like a Raven! Ray isn't gonna be around forever and it would have been nice to have a guy who would instantly be the 2nd best LB on the team, and could seemlessly take the reins when Ray retires.

Please don't ever insult Rey Maualuga like that ever again! He is more of a Ray Lewis clone, sideline to sideline can shut down a running game with his vision and passion and strength! He is not a guy who can't rush the passer, misses tackles and loses his head, and runs his mouth and thinks he's better than he is like Bart Scott.

Haha I knew that one would get you riled up :D.

First off to call Maualuga an immature turd is ridiculous.

I'd also like to know why me wanting Rey Maualuga suddenly makes it that I dislike something Michael Oher's done.

IMO Rey Maualuga was the best defensive player in this draft. A leader on the field who is fiery and plays with controlled passion. The guy IS a Raven, all this "play like a raven" ********, he plays like a Raven! Ray isn't gonna be around forever and it would have been nice to have a guy who would instantly be the 2nd best LB on the team, and could seemlessly take the reins when Ray retires.

not immature? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DdDGYsYXHKc

and there was no way that Maualuga the best defensive player in the draft. I'd take Aaron Curry or Malcolm Jenkins over him anyday. As for Ray's replacment, lets just say Ray can't be replaced. When Ray goes, the Baltimore Ravens defense will be something else, whether they had Maualuga or not.

Really? jokin around dancin behind Erin Andrews after a win is your argument? Pretty awful.

Either way Oher was the best choice. He is going to be a beast and IMO a better o-linemen than Rey will be a LB.

Oher was the best choice, He is a legit top 10 talent who got caught up in being over analized and being in a strong OT class. He is a top 10 talent and a steal. Ozzie has no problem finding LBs, the chances are greater that a player like Rey will be at the late 20s again while a player like Oher wont be.

Ken Murray said in a baltimore sun live chat that Krueger isnt dressing because he refuses to play special teams. I am shocked he seemed like a team 1st player, but if its true **** him

We should cut Dwill also because he is a bust. He is always injured and he is just a waste of a roster spot.(that was for you ERU) Kruger is a first year guy that needs a year or two to develop. I wouldn't give up on him yet. About the special teams thing I heard that it wasn't because he WON'T play special teams it is because he isn't good enough to play special teams.

We should cut D Will, I wish we would so he could go somewhere that will use him as he should be used. Kruger on the other hand wont play special teams/isnt good enough, isnt good enough to play d........perhaps a switch to TE in his future?......

Dwill isn't playing because Washington is better than him. You are judging a young guy in his first year and defending a guy who has had multiple chances to prove himself. All he has done is get injured.

D Will has shown that when healthy he can play in this league. Paul Kruger has shown he can trick Ozzie Newsome into making a horrible 2nd rd pick yet again.

No, Kruger hasn't shown anything yet. That's a little different than saying what he has shown is bad, but I see where you're coming from.

His being dominated by grocery bagging olineman aka 4th stringers in the pre-season says alot.
