All the talk here today is how the Rams are perhaps the most dangerous team the Ravens have played all year. Not so much because of the team they have, but instead about a team being 0-5 and not having much to play for except to upset another team’s season.
The Rams have declared running back Steven Jackson out for Sunday with a groin injury, while the only player out right now for the Ravens is Trevor Pryce. Although I would be surprised if you saw JO or Adam Terry on Sunday versus the Rams, take it for what it is worth, but Jared Gaither spoke at the podium today which may indicate him playing on Sunday.
The Ravens will be looking for their 100th team win on Sunday versus the Rams. For the record Brian Billick has been the head coach for 83 of those victories. However, Brian is 0-2 when it comes to playing the Rams. Billick’s 1st game as the head coach of the Ravens was a 27-10 loss to the Rams on 9/12/99. It was Kurt Warner who started in place of the injured Trent Green. Brian and the Ravens also played against the Rams in St Louis on 11/19/03 which was the game where Kyle Boller was injured and Chris Redman came into quarterback. Kyle tossed a TD pass to JO during that game. To say it was not Chris’s finest moment would be an understatement as he went 7 – 12 for 58yds, however he threw 2 INT’s and was sacked 5 times. That also would be the last game Redman ever played as a Raven.
