Ed Reed: My preparation is for long haul, not Ravens
Quote:
Reed was a call-in guest Tuesday on "The Rich Eisen Podcast," where he explained why missing a game against the team he won a Super Bowl with seven months ago wouldn't be the end of the world.

"It's nothing that urged me to play this week, you know I didn't circle this on the calendar," Reed explained. "I said it earlier in the offseason that with my rehab I'm not preparing to play against San Diego or Tennessee or even the Ravens.

"It's about being there for the long haul, being there for the team when it really counts, and that's playoffs, the Super Bowl, AFC Championship Game."

Sunday will provide some extra nostalgia for Reed as the Ravens induct longtime teammate Ray Lewis into the team's Ring of Honor during halftime. Reed doesn't project any bitterness about his departure from Baltimore, where he starred for 11 seasons.

"Everything that transpired between me and the Ravens is business, you know I had a great career there," Reed said. "I never saw myself playing against the Ravens so nothing in my heart, my soul that's urging me to play."

"I know it's a special day because yeah, my boy is going in the Ring of Honor, more than deserved for him. I always pictured myself on the sidelines watching that happen at halftime or something."

Reed will be in the building for Lewis' big celebration. Whether he'll be on the sideline -- or in uniform -- remains to be seen.

Matt Elam promoted to Ravens starting free safety
Quote:
Baltimore Ravens first-round draft pick Matt Elam has been promoted to the starting lineup, but the player he's replacing is a mild surprise.

Elam now is listed as the starting free safety on the team's official depth chart after playing 66 snaps to just six snaps for Michael Huff in Week 2.

The expectation was that Elam would eventually replace James Ihedigbo, who was a career special teamer before moving to Bernard Pollard's vacated strong safety spot this offseason...

It's been mentioned, that the Ravens are struggling. Their loss to the Broncos & their struggle against the Browns are being used as evidence. But how much does that really tell us?

Most people believe the Broncos are playing better than any other team in the AFC..... some believe they're the best team in the league right now. A loss to Denver is not necessarily a bad thing.

The Browns... the lowly Browns, are a divisional opponent to the Ravens, much like the Titans are to us. Cleveland had a better defense than Tennessee in 2012 (slightly) & they've made some additions to that side of the ball as well. Their biggest problem last season was their offense... & Jake locker threw for less than 150 yards on Sunday.

All I'm saying is we probably shouldn't infer too much from the Ravens performance so far. Flacco has shown a knack for stepping up when he needs to & this week might be more than just a "nice to win" game. This is their home opener, they're going to induct Ray Lewis into their Ring of Honor..... & we don't do well against "emotional" teams.

No doom & gloom here, I expect a win in Baltimore, but it's going to look ugly.

Default Re: Texans Game Week -- at Baltimore Ravens

After our first game against Baltimore in 2011, I thought we did a poor job matching up our corners on their WRs. Jjo on Bolden, Kj on Torrey Smith.

I like Kj, y'all know that. But he can't run with Torrey Smith. Jjo on the other hand doesn't have the strength to go one on one with Anquan Bolden.

The second time we played them, we flipped it & did a better job against the pass.


This year, there is no Bolden. Looks like Torrey Smith (who is off to a slow start this year) & Marlon Brown. I think Kj is a better player than he was in 2011, but still not in Torrey Smith's class as far as speed is concerned. Torrey & Kj both ran 4.4 forties, but Kareem doesn't play that fast.

Marlon Brown does. He's not only fast, but quick. I'd start the game with Jjo on Smith & see if Kareem can muscle the rookie out of the play. If that doesn't work, we'll probably incorporate more help on his side of the field.

The Ravens' fans seem to know us pretty well.
Quote:
Here's the way I see it...

Schaub is widely derided by Houston fans (well, at least the one I used to work with who lives there). He's got a tremendous cast around him, but still makes bonehead plays. The case is really what worries me....

Let's start with the thing that gives us the most fits...TEs. Houston has one of the upper echelon ones in Daniels. They also have a guy who has 2 TDs in the first 2 weeks, Garrett Graham. We haven't had to face TWO strong TEs yet this year, but one strong one has given us fits each week. Combined with that, they have a strong tandem of outside WRs in AJ and Nuk Hopkins. Our secondary HAS to be ready to play with the big boys here. You can't slip versus these 4 targets, they will make you play.

With that being said, you have to worry a lot about the Houston rushing attack. Foster is still playing well, and Tate was a beast this week too. With so much heat in their passing game, we have to rely on the front 7 to do a lot of the work on stopping the run. Dumervil had a fantastic game vs Browns, but he may play limited snaps vs Houston, as I'm betting we'll have Upshaw out there to contain the edge. Hoping that Brandon Williams is on the path to getting better, because if he and Canty are both out, that leaves a pretty gaping hole at DE. Would be Spears and Jones, with Tyson to fill in. Yikes.

On the defensive side, Texans have the #4 total defense in YPG, #3 vs the pass. This comes in a week when we expect Rice will be limited or unavailable. ****. Obviously, worried about JJ Watt on the edge (Remember last year, he batted down a ton of Flacco balls at the line), but maybe more concerning is Cushing up the middle against a struggling interior line. Gradkowski and KO vs Cushing? Oh crap.

I'd consider going TE-less and just bringing in Wagner as a blocker on a heavy dose of plays to chip. Our TEs are doing next to nothing anyway in the passing game, and they both also suck as blockers.

On paper, this could be a pretty brutal game. Sorry to be less than optimistic here...

However, intangibles wise, you couldn't pick a better game for the Ravens. Having Ray go into the ROH, having Reed come back, HAS to fire up both sides of the ball a little extra, especially combined with the sluggish start.

Texans Kareem Jackson fined $42,000 for his hit on receiver Kendall Wright. He'll appeal. League's explanation for fine: ...for "forcibly hitting the defenseless player's head or neck area with the helmet, face mask, forearm or shoulder."

Quote:
Jackson also said a hit like that is worth the risk because there's a chance no flag comes out and maybe the guy fumbles. #Texans

When I asked Kareem Jackson about the hit Sunday he said the flag and even a potential fine wouldn't change the way he played. #Texans

Ravens QB Joe Flacco on if safety Ed Reed plays: "It'll definitely be a little weird to see him in a Texans uniform."

Question is, how do we fare with Newton and Harris going up against Suggs and Dumervil? Our O-line is going to have their hands full and the Ravens are going to give us everything we can handle. I sure hope our D is ready, because I honestly see a rough time for our O.

It would go a long way if we can establish the run early, forcing Dumervil to become a spectator from the sideline.

With Brown out I just dont see us establishing the run like we want. This Balty D is starting to round into form, and will be nothing like we saw against Manning week 1.

This game is all on Schaub.

This means we will hear Dan Dierdorf masturbate to Joe Flacco, even if he throws an incomplete or int.

Default Re: Texans Game Week -- at Baltimore Ravens

I thought this was kinda funny considering who's saying it.. The Coach, Vonta Oher and Yanda all talk about how good of a player Watt is and how they'll just block him the best they can. Then, Flacco chimes in at the end saying you have to be physical with him.

Vonta:
Quote:
"J.J.'s got a high motor and is a big, strong powerful guy who's very athletic and causes a lot of disruption," Pro Bowl fullback Vonta Leach said. "He makes a lot of plays from the backside and the front side. He's a handful to block."
Yanda:
Quote:
"We all know who he is, he's a great football player,"
"He's got all the necessary tools and obviously all the moves. He swats the ball down, which is another thing to try to defend against. You try to block him to the best of your ability."
Oher:

"He's athletic, big and strong and knows how to play football," Oher said. "We definitely have to account for him."
Coach:
Quote:
"He's hard to block in the run game, when you run at him, when you run away from him. He’s hard to block when you try to pass-block him. He bats balls, he gets sacks. He’s just a very dominant-type defensive player.”
And Flacco:
Quote:
"You’ve got to get your hands on him. I think if you do that, that’s when you’re giving yourself the best chance. If you’re not
physical with him and you basically don’t play football, then obviously he’s going to have his day and have his way
Quote:
"But you’ve just got to try to be as physical as you can with him and stay under control so he doesn’t swim over you or dodge you left or right. He’s a good player. He’s going to do his thing, but we’ve just got to make sure we’re as physical as possible and limit his chances.”
