Default Re: Positives that TJ brings to the table in playoff rematch

Us Ravens fans know better than to discount a rookie QB in the divisional round (or at least we should). Joe Flacco went to #1-seeded Tennessee in 2009 as a rookie and won, so obviously it can be done.

Having AJ back is a huge advantage for you all, especially since the Ravens tend to struggle against bigger receivers. However, I do think the dropoff from Schaub to Yates is rather significant. I know you all kill Schaub sometimes, but the man is a damn good QB. With him I honestly think you all would be runaway Super Bowl favorites.

But there isn't a whole lot of tape of Yates to go on, so he might surprise some people. You all have an elite OL, so I actually wouldn't be surprised to see Yates do better than most people are expecting tomorrow. As long as he doesn't turn the ball over, I expect the game to be close (and the same goes for Flacco).

The biggest thing we need to acknowledge about those three games is that we lost it while perfecting our run game... that's the difference between Arian Foster's 41 yard 2.7 ypc game & his 153 yard play-off coming out party.

We're about to shock the world people & perfecting our game those last three games instead of worrying about "winning" is a big reason.

If you remember, Rice didn't have much of a game to brag about before then either. Flacco hit Smith for a 50 yarder then Bolden for another 50 & that opened the game for Rice.

We should have gone deep a few more times... didn't have to be successful, with Jacoby burning them once, reaffirming that we would take our shots would have opened the game for Foster & Tate.

As for everything else, it's a downgrade from Schaub.
TJ has a better arm as well..

But I do love his footwork and ability to extend plays. Only thing he needs to work on is putting the ball in the right spot
