    I could agree with this more. Put pressure on the QB all day long.

    How many totally complete football teams are in these playoffs? I mean other than the Washington football team? :makefun:

    Only the Chiefs look almost unbeatable to me. We already beat the Bills and Ravens. The Steelers top 2 Wrs are averaging less than 10 yards a catch and their running game is not good.

    The Bills and Packers. Both playing best right now. Expect them in the SB.

    We can beat anyone. And we can lose to anyone. That’s something we’ve definitely proven this year.

    But we played half our games this year against playoff teams. Winning 11 games is impressive but the offense is going to have to play near flawless football.

    I think most of us can agree that unless this defense has some big turnaround in the playoffs (not happening) like stated already our offense has to play perfect to win. That may work for a game but to ask this offense to beat 3 playoff teams with no help from the defense just isn’t going to happen. Sadly we have a Super Bowl caliber offense and a defense that at some point will cost us a deep playoff run

    The Chiefs look more beatable the last few weeks than ever before. We’re they coasting? Maybe. But the Bills look the best of all. The NFC is trash.

    Bills can’t run the ball. KC just gets in these grooves where they refuse to run the ball. CEH was also out for them the last couple weeks.

    It’s the classic Andy Reid syndrome. He just abandons the run for no reason at all. Killed him in Philly.

    You ask the question in Long and Evans can cover better than they can blitz....neither have shown to be great blitzers or cover guys

    Long and Evans are both best used in this game containing Lamar and stuffing the run. We want Lamar to be throwing the ball....if you blitz him you are just asking him to run and play street ball which is where he excels. Rarely do the Ravens win when Lamar has to throw over 30 times. Now that we have our secondary back and healthy I think we will be able to confuse Lamar and force an INT.

    We have to prevent the big play TDs to give the defense a chance to hold them to a FG. I'm not expecting our offense to just dominate the Ravens defense...they are healthy and angry as hell about the last 2 losses...the offense is going to have it's hands full.
