Derrick Mason had to exit Tuesday's practice after suffering an apparent right leg injury. Mason could not put any weight on his leg after a hit by Dawan Landry and had to be helped off the field. It doesn't sound good, but we'll update his condition when we get more details.
Greg Mattison, the Ravens' defensive coordinator, is not a proponent of blitzes. Perhaps you have heard him expound on this. He believes you're eventually going to lose if you take too many defenders out of your pass coverage too often, leaving the cornerbacks to fend for themselves. You just can't let your cornerbacks go it alone, Mattison believes, not with the pro game being so pass-happy today."
That's no surprise, his style is to let the front four get to the QB and not rely on blitzing (aka the opposite of Rex Ryan). Unfortunately for us we don't really have a front four suited for that, but I think we're getting there. Besides, with what our starting corners look like right now, would you want to leave them out on a island? I wouldn't, not even for couple of seconds.
I do for stopping the run. Not for rushing the passer. We have a front 4 that is built for a 34 defense. Not a bland 43.
I think we can field an above average 4-man line. Suggs-Ngata-Pryce-Kruger isn't too shabby IMO, and we have depth behind those guys as well. I agree we're better suited for a 3-4 ATM, but that doesn't mean it can't do well in a 4-3.
I like Ngata - Gregg - Pryce in front of Kindle - Lewis - Johnson - Suggs on passing downs much more then I like Suggs - Ngata - Pryce - Kruger. I think this team is built to blitz and we should be doing just that.
