Last night Joe wasn't able to do that. He wasn't comfortable and didn't seem confident. Those are just the facts and any unbiased viewer would agree. Just read some national articles. He stunk on the road - again. He better snap out of it next week - remember what happened last year out there? It was a disaster.
By comparison -- through 10 games, Willis McGahee, Ray Rice's former backup RB, has 731 rushing yards, compared to Ray Rice's 697.
Oh, and for those wondering, the Charger's Defense is ranked #3 against the run.
What I don't understand is why when we need a yard, EVERY TIME we hand it to a 5'6" guy, when we have a 250 pound Leach, or even Bernard Pierce to give it to. The failure rate for that play in that situation has to be in the 90% range. Or for that matter why we throw a 3 yard pass when we need seven, or a bubble screen to the WR on 3rd and 13.
the gloom and doom here is amazing...now we are back to reading facial expressions...not that the Ravens have won the last 3!!!!! regular season games in Pitts with Flacco at QB...nope, not good enough....now everyone is afraid of the totally imploding Chargers.....
the Steelers defense is pretty good, you know...they took Smith out of the game and when Pitta went down the passing game suffered....
why don't you all petition the elague and ask them to award the win to Pittsburgh...
2. Since Rice GOT his 25 touches, I posted the stats to show exactly how that worked out.
3. Is that NOT a legitimate topic for a Ravens forum, regardless of whether it follows a win or a loss?
They should have mixed Ray in with Pierce more and also used Leach who I never saw and figured was hurt (everybody else last night seemed to be ...Pitta's loss really hurts). I actually think they ran too much.
I'll take the win anytime but Cam's offense is about as imaginative as Ted Marchabroda's!
1. The Ravens are not varying their offensive game plan enough from week to week and do not deviate from their normal tendencies. Who doesn't know what the Ravens would call on a 3rd and two about 90% of the time?
2. Players are tipping the plays and counts, etc. Maybe certain players give the plays away by putting more pressure on their right hand, or lean a certain way, etc.
3. The players are just inferior to their opponents and, thus, are just overwhelmed. Great plans can be under-appreciated with poor execution. If just one player misses his blocking assignment, the whole offensive play could be compromised.
4. Something underhanded is going on by the other team. This could be done by using spies, mikes, etc. to hone in on the plays. This is the least-likely possible reason IMHO, but we do remember Patriot-gate a few years ago, so it cannot be completely ruled out.
Congrats to Cam and Rice on running over the Steelers for another win! What's the make, 4 in a row.
Cam owns the Steelers!
