And 41 points vs 13 points is really all one needs to bring up. We were stuck with James and Ruud as our starting LBs... Lulz.
Sorry but Talib is not all that . The Ravens started using Boldin , Pitta , and Leach and toasted the Pats . The Pats guarded deep and tried to take Rice away by leaving the flanks open . Guess what , the Ravens took their money .
