  • Ravens vs. Chiefs, Interesting Draft Comment

    Hey guys,

    Thought you'd enjoy this tweet from an ex-Baltimore scout:

    RT @MoveTheSticks: Ironic, Brodie Croyle starts against BAL today. I was in BAL that year and KC took him 2 spots before we were taking him

      Well our offense looked good today as did our defense before that drive in the fourth. Flacco's mistake and the blocked punt were really the only things that kept them in the game. At least it was a good game to watch.

      On a side note, I saw a lot of Ayenbandejo in there today (even before Gooden left with a sprained knee). Not sure I like that.

        Anybody else think we were the dumbest team in the NFL today?

        What the **** is Ed Reed doin in there returning a punt? I know Chirs Carr is a huge waste of money and a roster spot but Jesus Christ, tryin to get our best player hurt?

        And why is Tavares Gooden out there on kickoffs? Is one of the other 15 LBs we kept on the roster not good enough for that?

        Much closer game then it should have been, but Ill say this very concerned about our ability or lack there of to get to the QB. The Chiefs OLine is horrendous and we got to Croyle what twice? Thats not gonna get it done against Pittsburgh or New England or Indy or Tennessee.

        I'll wrap it up by saying good win, but we are nowhere near the level of the top tier of AFC teams i.e. Pittsburgh and New England.

          Yeah we only had two sacks today (both by Jarret Johnson). We did pressure Their QB quite a bit though and we dominated the run game. Still a little disconcerting. I did notice that we lined up in quite a few 4-3 sets.

            I know Flacco is great and we want to show off our passing game, but I'd hated the balance of passing to running. This isn't Ravens football. Our run offense was dominant yet we insisted on throwing it risking the chance of an INT. With Flacco, McClain, and Mcgahee getting an even split all of them are always fresh whenever they come in. There is no reason why the Ravens shouldn't just be pounding it every play and allowing Flacco to make plays on 3rd down.

              I think you mean Rice there, but hey I could see Flacco as part of a four-headed monster rushing attack. :D

                I wasnt overly impressed at all, I agree we need to get more pressure on the QB. We need to score TDs not settle of FGs. and Our K sucks hopefully Ozzie called stover already

                  OMG he missed ONE field goal. He's not going to make everything people, lets not forget he also MADE a kick as well and he looked good on kick-offs. We don't need to waste a roster spot on Stover.

                    Passing Attempts: 43
                    Rushing Attempts: 41

                    I really don't have much problem with what the offense did. Flacco was a bit erratic at times, but for the most part he played well and made the plays he needed to.

                    What pisses me off is the special teams performance. I'm fine with Hauschka but we really can't miss 40 yard field goals, and we definitely can't have punts blocked. That's a 10 point difference and that's not going to get it done against New England, Pittsburgh, Indianapolis. We can't expect to make all of the mistakes we made and win ball games againts quality teams. Chris Carr was very unimpressive, really showed zero explosiveness in the return game and actually made a fair catch at the 7? He needs to step up.

                    I share the same sentinments as everyone else does with the pass rush, hopefully Kruger can get back for next week and make some sort of impact. We need to get more pressure.

                    We left the door open for KC and they took advantage. We're going to have to play better next week, luckily alot of the mistakes we made are correctable.

                      Ok a few comments......

                      Paul Kruger is not gonna impact the pass rush at all, he'll be lucky to get 2.5 - 3.5 sacks this year. Offensive tackles just dominate him, he'll be more of a run support LB than a pass rusher. We need to use Barnes on 3rd downs and turn him loose on the QBs, his speed presents serious mismatches.

                      The wind was blowing straight right when Hauschka kicked that field goal, I guess it would be straight left from his perspective. And he missed it left, Stover would have shorted that kick by 10 yards. Stover is gone and hopefully if there's a God he's not coming back! Hauschka's kickoffs were awesome all day long, Stover is lucky to get the kickoff inside the 15.

                      My only offensive complaint would be, that we need to use D Will more if we are gonna be a more pass oriented offense.

                        I don't like the way he kicks. He has a ton of leg, but he knuckles it, and that's going to cause a lot of missed field goals this season. Even the one he made was pure luck that it didn't curve a little bit earlier and go wide left.

                          Kelley Washington looked pretty damn good in the slot.

                            He did, he suprisingly did very well. But because 1 guy does well doesn't mean you can't use the other.

                              Well, given our lack of 4 wide sets I can see why Williams didn't play much. Why mess with Clayton, Mason, and Washington when they were doing good.
