Don’t You Talk About My Defense Like That!

Posted on 14 December 2010 by Dwayne Showalter

I can’t stand idly by any longer and let the buffoonery continue.  I know people like to vent after losses (and near collapses like last night in Houston).  But the constant bashing of the Ravens offense while the defense continues to get a free pass has to stop.

It’s like the offense is Muslim and the defense is the Pope around here.   The offense has its moments where components fail and make the whole unit looked whacked but generally it’s just a solid group that goes misunderstood.  And the Pope?  Well golly, how can you question him?

I can.  And I will.  Certainly when it comes to last night’s game.  Once being staked to a 21-0 lead, the defense came on the field.  Admittedly, they were playing well, but let’s be honest, the Texans were killing themselves a bit too.   The D had surrendered 108 yards to that point.  The offense was clicking.  There was no reason to be “winded” at this point.

But the Texans breezed through for an 80 yard, 7-play TD.  Then it was halftime.  OK.  The D made a late mistake.  The break would give them time to sure up themselves for the second half, right?  And the bonus?  Returning the opening kick all the way to restore a 21-point lead.

Now here is where people lose perspective.  They are certainly rested after the half.   So how do you explain a 16 play, 70 yard drive, using half the 3rd quarter.  That’s on them.  Now a Ravens offense comes out that hasn’t ran a meaningful play in nearly an hour and goes three-and-out.  Shame on you offense for doing that for only the 2nd time all night and after scoring TDs on 3 of your last 5 possessions.  Maybe the Ravens defense can step up now and give you a hand.  It’s still 28-10.  No…another 10 play drive ending with a field goal and its 28-13.

Now surely the offense will move the ball, right?  I mean the lead is only 15 and only 11 minutes remain.  Well, they don’t score but they do net a couple first downs, knock 4:33 off the clock and pin the Texans at the 1-yard line with another brilliant punt by Sam Koch.  Now the defense should have had time to catch its breath with timeouts and clock stoppages. 

But no, it’s a 99-yard, 15 play comedy that includes gains of 23,7,10,16,8,13,10,5 and finally a 7 yard TD to close the gap.

Now the offense needs to come up big.  Well, they don’t but they do gain two first downs again, flip the field again, knock 3:18 off the clock and pin the Texans at their own 5.  But as we have seen already, that is no challenge to Houston who gains 95 yards in 2:13 and ties the game with two-point conversion.

And remember the overtime?  Pinned again, Houston is forced, finally, into a mistake that wins the game for Baltimore.  Did the Ravens offense have the knock-out blow in the second half, NO.  I get that.  But that, folks, is one extremely poor defensive showing.  Tired?  Please…I was tired of watching them play like crap.  The offense could at least make some 1st downs.  The defense never stopped Houston after the 21-0 lead.  Never…until overtime.  Guess what, if they would have done it just once in the previous five drives, the game was over.

And for a town that always seems to be chasing the Steelers, chew on this.  In their past three games, Pittsburgh has scored 2 TDs (a 9 yard drive and one to begin the Buffalo game 3 weeks ago), fumbled twice, were picked off once, and punted 16 times.  Now they have kicked 9 field goals in that time.  You can win that way when you play great defense as Pittsburgh is doing.  The Ravens have done it before.  But this is not a great defense or a great offense.  Both have shortcomings.  Somehow they are 9-4.  And the NFL doesn’t offer up “gimme’s”.  So take it for what it is…an escape…and look forward to the next roller coaster ride on Sunday because my guess is we’ll need to scrounge up another 30-plus points versus the Saints…offense, defense and special teams again.

Blog & Tackle: NFL one-liners through Week 13

Posted on 09 December 2010 by Chris Pika

The 2010 NFL season has reached the three-quarter mark, and like any good game on Sundays, it’s usually the fourth quarter that decides success or failure.

It’s a chance to take stock of each conference after 13 weeks and 12 games with one-liners on each of the teams. Below are some stats, observations and conjecture as we look ahead to the final four weeks.

First, here is a look at the AFC by divisions. Records are through Week 13:

AFC East

New England Patriots (10-2): Patriots have won last four, including huge win over the Jets to solidfy their claim as AFC’s best team behind conference-best (+110) scoring differential; road to AFC title will go through Gillette Stadium and coach Bill Belichick.

New York Jets (9-3): Despite 3-1 stretch, Jets went from potentially being in line to host AFC title game to very vulnerable after shredding of New York’s vaunted D by the Patriots.

Miami Dolphins (6-6): Dolphins continue to confound with 5-1 road mark, but 1-5 home record — that will be main reason they will not make playoffs as well as offensive woes (-23 point differential).

Buffalo Bills (2-10): Bills finally saw results after 0-8 start with two straight victories, but close loss to Steelers and blowout defeat to Vikings has slowed Buffalo’s progress.

AFC North

Pittsburgh Steelers (9-3): Steelers have grabbed choke-hold of AFC North after winning the war in Baltimore last week behind QB Ben Roethlisberger and stout defense; now Pittsburgh could host AFC Divisional Playoff at always-tough Heinz Field.

Baltimore Ravens (8-4): Only home loss of season so far to Steelers was costly as Ravens may have three straight playoff games on the road instead of one or two home games; predicted high-production offense has gone cold at bad times.

Cleveland Browns (5-7): Cleveland continues to be a “tough out” thanks to solid running game behind RB Peyton Hillis; if they get QB (and maybe head coach) situation settled in offseason, could be 2011 team to watch in AFC.

Cincinnati Bengals (2-10): The wheels have completely come off the cart for one of the preseason favorites to win the division — nine-game losing streak may spell the end of the Marvin Lewis era in Cincinnati.

AFC South

Jacksonville Jaguars (7-5): Jaguars, after 3-1 stretch, find themselves on top in the division, despite worst point differential among all division leaders (-43) — only question is can they hold off slumping Colts?

Indianapolis Colts (6-6): Colts’ injuries have finally taken a toll; forget Peyton Manning for a moment, being in position of having to pass so much has allowed opponents to tee off in crucial situations — but Indy can still catch Jaguars for division title.

Houston Texans (5-7): Lack of strong starts have doomed Texans, 1-5 in their last six games — last chance for Houston (and maybe coach Gary Kubiak’s job) comes with Monday night visit by Ravens in Week 14.

Tennessee Titans (5-7): When you didn’t think anybody else could surpass Minnesota as NFL’s best soap opera, here comes the Titans; normally unflappable coach Jeff Fisher has had to deal with Vince Young, Randy Moss and owner Bud Adams in recent weeks.

AFC West

Kansas City Chiefs (8-4): Chiefs seem to have control of the division after a three-game win streak and perfect 6-0 home mark; can they hold off the Raiders and Chargers over the final four weeks?

Oakland Raiders (6-6): Progress has been slowed by 3-2 mark in last five games, but 4-0 division record could be factor if they get help before Week 17 showdown at traditional rival Chiefs.

San Diego Chargers (6-6): Amazing how one loss changes things after blowout defeat by Raiders last week that stopped four-game win streak; season on the line vs. Chiefs this week.

Denver Broncos (3-9): A three-game losing streak coupled with Spygate-like scandal in London finally cost Josh McDaniels his coaching job; Eric Studesville gets his audition but the supporting cast is not there.

And now for the NFC by divisions:

NFC East

Philadelphia Eagles (8-4): The Eagles are tied for the division lead, but arguably have the NFC East’s toughest schedule left with two games vs. Dallas and one each against the Giants and Vikings — for what was originally expected to be a transition year, a lot is still on the table.

New York Giants (8-4): Giants are playing as well as any team in NFC right now, but head coach Tom Coughlin’s team must navigate Minnesota, Philadelphia and Green Bay the next three weeks to stay in the division and Wild Card mix.

Washington Redskins (5-7): The Redskins season has become a trainwreck as head coach Mike Shanahan has had to deal with several distractions, including DT Albert Haynesworth’s suspension for conduct detrimental; the Skins defense should be suspended as well, allowing the fifth-most points in the NFC.

Dallas Cowboys (4-8): The Cowboys have gotten off the deck to become a team no one wants to face down the stretch; Dallas could play spoiler in the NFC East and help Jason Garrett remove the interim coaching tag.

NFC North

Chicago Bears (9-3): The Bears have won five straight to hold the division lead by one game thanks to resurgent play by QB Jay Cutler and LB Brian Urlacher; Chicago has murderous final four weeks capped by Week 17 visit to Packers.

Green Bay Packers (8-4): Despite injuries, Packers are firmly in the playoff mix, but key Week 12 loss at Atlanta looms large as well as final three games against New England, Giants and Chicago — win those and Green Bay will have earned its postseason ticket.

Minnesota Vikings (5-7): A change in head coach to well-respected assistant Leslie Frazier has helped the mood in Minnesota, but the final four weeks will be all about Brett Favre’s literal limp to the finish of his career (I think).

Detroit Lions (2-10): Some of the strides made early in the season by the Lions have been erased by the current five-game losing streak; coach Jim Schwartz is still looking for consistent winning formula.

NFC South

Atlanta Falcons (10-2): The hottest team in the NFC with six straight wins, the Falcons may do something no Atlanta NFL team ever has — host the NFC Championship Game in January; but they have to get through Week 16 Monday Night game vs. Saints.

New Orleans Saints (9-3): The defending Super Bowl champions are playing like it for first time all season with a current five-game win streak as the Saints try to go stride-for-stride with the Falcons; back-to-back road contests at Baltimore and Atlanta in Weeks 15-16 are New Orleans’ key games.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (7-5): The air has finally come out of the Buccaneers’ balloon with two straight losses, but Tampa Bay is just one game out of a Wild Card spot with favorable matchups in the next three weeks before Week 17 at Saints.

Carolina Panthers (1-11): The Panthers just want the season to be over, and the housecleaning will begin soon after starting with head coach John Fox; Panthers are a NFC-worst minus-153 in point differential.

NFC West

St. Louis Rams (6-6): The Rams have quietly put themselves in position to make the playoffs out of a weak NFC West, but don’t mistake St. Louis as a weak team — QB Sam Bradford is one of the league’s feel-good stories of 2010, and division could come down to Week 17 tilt at Seattle.

Seattle Seahawks (6-6): The Seahawks are in position to capture the NFC West, but head coach Pete Carroll’s squad still has worst point differential among NFC teams with a winning record (-49); Week 17 vs. St. Louis could be the decider.

San Francisco 49ers (4-8): San Francisco not officially dead in NFC West race, but last gasp could come this Sunday vs. Seattle; if they win, they still have games vs. St. Louis and Arizona — teams they have already beaten in 2010.

Arizona Cardinals (3-9): Cardinals have gone south for the winter as they have lost seven straight and hold NFC’s second-worst point difference (-138), but have three winnable games in final four weeks.

BYE-WEEK PERFECT TIMING

Posted on 27 October 2010 by Tom Federline

The Ravens are a hurtin’ outfit. Hurtin’ physically, hurtin’ mentally, hurtin’ at the coaching positions. Annnd they are 5 – 2. I had predicted 4-3. They could easily be 7-0 or 1-6. Went to the game this past Sunday and I saw one hurtin’ unit out there. I would say at least 75% of the players that came off that field were limping or holding some body part, at some point in the game. I have not looked at the injury report, but my untrained eye saw these hurt individuals: Jarret Johnson, Haloti Ngata, Kelley Gregg, Heeeeeap, of course Ed Reed, Ray Rice and Fabian Washington was fairly ……burnt. Ray-Ray was having his shoulder looked at. And Joe Flacco was looking in the stands for a sports psychologist to aid Camera Cameron and Jim Zorn. The boys are hurt physically. The mental part needs a rest, re-evaluate, re-energize and then re-convene.

I haven’t been writing about the Ravens because a) They haven’t grabbed my attention – positively. b) I still do not understand why 40+ points a game are not going up on the scoreboard. c) It’s just a matter of time until some offense out there realizes that  the Ravens can be lit up. d)No stand-out identity. Annnnd they are 5 – 2. They have seven (7) offensive weapons (not including Flacco), that would starters/go-to guys on any other NFL team and the boys are just squeaking by. Is it me or was Flacco better….. without Jim Zorn? I think the talent has overwhelmed the supposed Offensive Coordinator. And the talent has always been ahead of the supposed Head Coach. Maybe it will come together. Maybe the coaching will catch up to the talent. Maybe  the current team needs to watch video of the Super Bowl run year. 

The reunion of the 2000 Super Bowl team this past weekend was done well. Good job Ravens PR. Nice weather. Fairly nice turn out. Nice time for reflection. I’m not real happy with the way they are playing now, but the reunion made me think back during that 2000 season when they were 5 -4 and not scoring TD’s. Half way thru we weren’t exactly buying tickets to the Super Bowl in Tampa, now were we? Although, we were slightly encourageddue to the fact the Ravens did have one heckuva defense that year. Well, this year they have one heckuva an offense……we just haven’t seen it! Are we ever going to see it? After seeing the Super Bowl boys back on Sunday and on the field, I thought how nice it would be to have the following:

Trent Dilfer – QB coach and Offensive Coordinator, Ogden – Offensive Line coach, Jamaal Lewis – Running Backs, Ray-Ray – plays and is Defensive Coordinator, Goose – Defensive Line, Ed Reeeed – plays (when able) and has Defensive Backfield. Head Coach – Buck Showalter (whoops, I’m still drinking the orange Kool-aid),  Head Coach – Michael McCrary! Ten years ago? You kiddin’ me? Wasn’t I just singing and barking – “Who Let the Dogs Out?” – (Baha Men).

Ok, back to reality. Did anyone hear the defense getting booed on Sunday? Guess what, I was one of them. Booing the Ravens defense………who would of thought that? Ugly, ugly game on Sunday. Annnnnd they are 5 -2. How about Ed Reed’s first hit? Knocked the ball right out. How about Ed Reeds two interceptions? How about Ed Reed getting hurt again? Terrell Suggs – one of the most over-paid and over-rated players in the league. Ozzie blew it – letting Bart Scott go and keeping Suggs. “Joe Cool” Flacco has shown signs bordering on becoming  “Kyle Booller – Flacknut”. If Flacco’s first read is covered and then he can’t find his Ray Rice outlet, it’s over.

I called 6-3 after the break. A break much needed. Do they have a run in them? Let Flacco play. Go away Jim Zorn. Let Flacco and the potential Magnificent 7 run the show and rock the house. Then Joe can sit in the 4th quarter, save him and bring in Bulger. Hope the defense stays healthy, hope Reed gets back to say 90% and then let’s go buy tickets to Dallas/Arlington, TX area. If it were only that easy. By the way did I mention they are 5 – 2? Strap yourself in.

D.I.Y.

Fantasy Flavor Week 6 Start Rankings

Posted on 15 October 2010 by Thyrl Nelson

Here are the week 6 fantasy football start rankings in their entirety. I’ll be back to update them on Friday evening once the final injury report comes out.

 

Disclaimer: The rankings are “formulary”, based on 2-parts individual expectations and one part defensive expectations based on that player’s weekly match up, with adjustments made for injuries, anomalies and my gut. The “formulary” numbers are listed behind each player’s match up in parentheses with the lower numbers being best, and a lowest possible “formulary” number of 3. As always, trust your own gut, keep an eye on the injury report, good luck and have fun. If you aren’t having fun playing fantasy football, you’re doing it wrong.
