First off, I am not a "chicken little" fan, there are 16 punishing games in a season, and 1 game does not dictate a season, but 1 game can change a season.
Injuries are a part of all teams. in the past the Ravens have been able to cope with injuries on both sides of the ball and remain respectable.
That being said, this deen pees defense is NOT Ravens football. How many times this season have we seen teams run crossing patterns and then have a third reciever drag across the middle 10-15 yds downfield wide open?
I don't want to hear about "bend but don't break" and "look at the record". At this point, I am in the camp of pees needs to go. The domianat defenses which us Ravens fans are used to start by stopping the run. pees defense cannot do that either. this scheme gives out 100 yd rushing days and rushing touchdowns like the obama regime gives out food stamps.
I don't care that X, Y, and Z are out and F,G, and H are not 100%. Other teams don't care and won't take it easy, they will attack. pees philosophy is NOT RAVENS FOOTBALL. Time to go, and give the "next man up" the chance to scheme with the talent available.
If you don't think that P. Manning is getting 450 yds passing next week, after 175 year old Charlie Batch torched this Ravens D for a win, AND a rookie backup entering the game cold gets the tying TD, I have some ocean front property in Nevada to sell you.
Any time a RAVENS offense puts up 28, it should be a blow out.
