    I totally agree with everyone regarding Rice and the spread, I think he'd be a monster in a zone read offense too lol. Pierce is Arian Foster version two, we really have a talented corps of RB's that's for sure.
    I agree with you. The problem is that when Leach is in the huddle the defense knows exactly what to defend. It's either going to be a zone run up the middle right behind Leach, or a play-action bomb.

    When he's not in the huddle the defense has to defend more of the field so they're easier to run on. The Ravens could solve this by passing more out of the I-formation. If I were them I would do just what you said and put Leach out there to block more often. They could line up in an I-formation but put Pitta out in the slot right, Boldin in tight to the line and motion Rice out wide, then you effectively have a 4 wide set out of base personnel! And it would work well, Rice and Pitta are both great route runners.

    By the way, I don't see this as a ringing endorsement. It's more of a comment that keeps him clean no matter who wins. With all of the film study and alleged higher knowledge why doesn't he take a stand?

    Because games aren't won by film.

    The winds at gametime is what worries me. It levels the playing field on the deep ball, but Brady is more comfortable with the short passing game than I think Joe is. If the deep ball is getting thrown off by winds on Sunday, Joe and Jim are going to have to find some ways to turn shorter throws into long downfield gains with YAC.

    Yea, someone has to keep Wilfork from getting to the pocket before Flaco does.

    The Ravens have so many weapons, I'm not too worried about offense. Brady is a surgeon and finds holes where theoretically none exist. It's gonna be a slugfest.

    Jaws is a close second. After that, prolly Mayock.

    After that, no one is close.

    I'm not sure if there is anyone else out there that I'd rather listen to when breaking down a game than Greg Cosell.
    Yep. Although in last week's shutdown corner podcast I distinctly remember his emphasis that in the first Denver matchup, Champ Bailey dominated Torrey Smith. I guess it turns out that it helps when Flacco has an o-line.

    I keep hoping they're saving that for this game or the Super Bowl.

    I bet Brady Ballwasher Cowherd didn't like hearing that.
