Do you think we could have beat the Ravens?
Would have? Seriously doubt it.
We have some growing to do. I'm looking at the NFLN replay of the AFCC game now. Two things are standing out: 1. The effectiveness of the Ravens' spread offense in running and passing against the Pats' defense. 2. how the Ravens made being the ball carrier - whether it was a RB or WR - a very painful experience.
1) Losing Love and Talib hurt the Patriots.
2) Getting Cush back is a great start to help us improve in this area.
