    We have improved little by little on the defense allowing smaller passing yards against us.(But we still allowed 301 yds from the Eagles) So if the players want to keep Kubiak and possibly their own job next year.The Texans will flick that switch and when these must win games the rest of the year.

    Yes, depending on which Texans team we will be cheering for, Jekyll or Hyde.

    Of course we can, but I wouldn't get your hopes up.

    Anquan Boldin against this secondary is worrying me

    of course we can, the ravens barely beat the bills and lost to cincy.. but they could also destroy us like last time they visited in 08

    depends on which teams show up on both sides

    I don't think 'can we' is the question you want to ask....'will we' beat the Ravens?....maybe.


    Not trying to be a bummer but the Texans record/mentality in big games is not good. And this game is monumental.

    While I like Boldin and appreciate his toughness & competitiveness, he's going to represent a breather for our young Dbacks compared to some of the deep-threat WRs they already faced.

    I don't think this team has what it takes to beat the Ravens. Unless the Ravens screw up and hand us the game, we are 5-8 along with the Tits after Monday night. But has been said a billion times, who knows what the Texans will do?

    No we cannot beat the Ravens. As long as we are mathematically in the playoff hunt the Texans will choke it away. Not to mention Matt will probably get knocked out of the game by Ray Lewis and Suggs.

    Yes, we can. No, we won't. We might have what it takes to win; we just haven't figured out what it is. I have been Pollyanna for lo these many years and I've now lost hope. I'll be there cheering.

    I truly believed they were going to beat the Jets. And the sad part is that they should have!

    This team doesnt have what it takes to finish off the big boys. Lets look at our 5 wins this year.

    Indy = 6-6
    Skins = 5-7
    Raiders = 6-6
    Chiefs = 8-4
    Titans = 5-8

    And yall think we can beat the 8-4 Ravens, who have beaten the Jets, and Pitt?

    Are we still in the playoff hunt? Yep, so that means we won't win.

    We need to lose out if you ask me. I want 5-11 or 6-10 and I want it bad.

    Kubiak must go!!

    Can we? Yes, definitely. Will we? I've had as much kool-aid in the past as anybody, but I don't think so. They just haven't shown they can go toe-to-toe with a smash-mouth team like the Ravens. I'd like to be proven wrong.
