It's our home opener, Ninja is hungry, we'll win. It's the last game of the season when we travel to Tennessee that has me worried.

Division away games are never (except with the Jags) a given. Agreed.

I predict an ass whooping of epic proportions, tacks go home with their possum tails between their legs.

If that's the way it comes down, do you have the faith in your QB that he can get it done?
The defense has to keep us in the game early on to give the offense enough time too get a rhythm going. The offense getting a slow start has been a weakness of this team.

If I were you guys, I'd keep a lookout for a few players under the radar. While everybody talks about CJ, it was Jackie Battle, the 3rd string RB who scored the winning only TD last week. During that drive we passed once and ran 11 times. When the Steelers weren't trying to run down the 190 lb speed back, they were getting run over by the 240 lb bruiser. With Shoen Greene, the #2 back still nursing a tweaked knee from last week, look for more Battle on the field backing up CJ.

And on the wide receiver core, Damien Williams who has been very reliable of late is out with a tweaked hammy. That puts rookie receiver Justin Hunter into the mix, and everyone likes his talent and upside. All he lacks is experience.

Finally, Locker has been more accurate of late but it's still a big question mark. Since the running game was clearly working last week, we just went with that. I think this week Jake is going to have to move the chains himself more.

I only see 2 sacks credited to their defensive players. Looked like (& I'm sure Schaub felt more than that).

Yep, I'm more worried about them than Indy going forward. Have a great D is paramount to succeed. Still not sold on Luck being a surefire elite QB either.

Well, I would be lying if I said I was not pissed off for losing. I figured TN would come in and get mopped but for them to hang in there it made the loss worse lol. I can move on though because our defense actually (at this point anyways) looks "ok". I just wish Locker was a better QB. Congrats on a good game guys. Til next time...

I'm not looking forward to seeing that defense @Tennessee, but if we can find a way to improve our pass protection, you're going to hate Bernard Pollard. Our TEs worked him all day long (rewatch the game if you get a chance)... Schaub just didn't have a chance to get the ball out.

I have been following him all preseason. I like his attitude, I just wished his skills matched it. He isnt that good at coverage and his tackling leaves much to be desired. Im hoping to see a lot more George Wilson than Pollard. You guys definitely got the better Raven lol.
