Default So How Much Will Leach and Pollard Help Baltimore on Sunday

Obviously Leach knows our run game and blocking schemes like the back of his hand. Pollard has seen our route combinations in practice for 2 years.

So how much do you think this will help the Ravens on Sunday? I know there has been some discussion about Sage with New York last season, and some worry about Dan Orlovsky joining the Colts in the preseason.

Pollard? I'd he is playing might be Jacoby's chance to make some plays. Hope we go after Pollard hard.

It's going to take the Ravens basically falling down and forgetting how to be the better team for us to beat them.

I remember a Texans team that beat the Steelers, in Pittsburgh, with only defensive TDs and field goals. But I don't see that sort of crazy scenario happening this time with the Ravens.

People should just seriously watch the game with all expectations centering upon "This is probably a loss anyways..." and if we win, it's good, and if we don't you didn't needlessly get your hopes up just to have 'em dashed to pieces this Sunday.

Simple.

While I don't know how much Leach or Pollard will be of help to Baltimore, I do know that Pollard is in "kill mode."

Eric Winston on the radio said they need to put Pollard into "coverage mode."

That's definitely one way to do it.

Instead I'm going to remember that we can play with the Ravens. We can play with anyone. I just hope the Texans forget this is the kind of game they are supposed to lose & bring home a W.

Vonta: "Just an FYI, Coach...the Texans never audible out of a play. So if they call a run play, we can stack 10 in the box and they'll still try to run."

Harbaugh: "Tell me something we haven't known for 5 years now, Dr. Obvious."

How would you know it's a run play? They all look the same. We run & throw out of the same formations, use the same motion, use the same personnel. What looks like a run play could easily be a passing play.

They won't know until Matt drops back, even then they can't trust what their eyes are telling them.

Ray Rice. Vonta Leach. Ravens defense. Road game AT the Ravens' stadium.

I like my idea better.

I just don't like the way it looks on paper, nor how it looks after watching the Texans completely fall apart in Quarters 2, 3, and the first 10 minutes or so of the 4th Quarter vs. the Raiders. In Reliant, by the way.

I'll obviously take the win, but man oh man I think it will take our guys wielding machetes and grenades to get it done vs. that Ravens team in their own house. They're licking their chops at this game.

It's time the Ravens paid us back for handing them a win last year.

I think Pollard will have a fun time covering OD/Dreesen. You HAVE to attack them to keep him out of the box.

Leach will. Pollard will practically be on our team again with how many times he gets thrown on. Bet you anything he gets some stupid personal foul calls for trying to be tough against his old team.
