    Thanks, Wolf.

    JJo needs to cover Smith the speedster. Then the two remaining "physically challenged" players should be pitted against each other. If either of the corners play 5-10 yards off, 1st downs will become plentiful.

    As well as we did against the run with the Bengals, they certainly seemed to readily be able to pick up 3rd and short right up the middle on us. If we can't counteract this against the the Ravens, we'll be in for a very long and unhappy day.

    I think the Duane Brown will be a key too

    whether against Redding (If I recall he plays that side) or Suggs coming in within the hybrid defense they have

    I´m gonna have a real problem on sunday. I am moving this saturday - and I want have any TV or internet (only on the iphone) for the weekend... I don`t know how I´m supposed to get through playoff weekend, especially since the Texans are playing. I may have to find some bar which shows the game, but in Germany bars that show American Football are kinda hard to find...

    Make SURE we limit Rice in the passing game.

    Teams have been lining their NT head up on Myers, making it difficult for him to get to those LBs... This is where Brisiel & Wade are going to have to pick it up, either get in there & pick up the NT quickly, or they'll have to get up to the second level to take out RayRay.

    I kindly suggest that Lance Z go back and rewatch the Colts games last year and the Ravens games from last year as well as this year (while taking into account what the coaches said instead of disregarding it altogether.)

    3. What the hell is 25 doing playing. Not fast enough to cover Smith. Does not look for ball reception or interference best options with this coverage. No chance of interception. Maybe we get a break a Boldin is not ready to play.
