This will be a tough match-up for McAlister. However saying that as long as he does not get beat by Edwards on the breakaway as he did last year. The physical edge goes to McAlister because as long as he can stay around and keep Edwards tight he can at least get his hands on the ball Edwards will drop it. One of his weaknesses is the ability to hold onto the ball.

It seems like McAlister is finally starting to mature a little bit. Too bad this didn't happen a few seasons ago. Maybe he can pass on some of it Bart Scott and Suggs.

Has no one been watching the first two weeks??? Edwards has got butterfingers. Even if he does get open, which his superior agility will allow him to do, assuming one on one coverage, he's had trouble catching the ball thus far this year.

And if the Ravens hope and assume that those butter fingers continue (which they won't), then that isn't a very wise outlook to build a game plan around.

Cleveland played 2 tough teams and their offense was not as active as it usually is!! I'm sure Edwards will do his thing. He's still young and he's maturing. Unfortunately, we're gonna have to deal with his @ss twice a year until he leaves our division.
C-Mac is one of the best CBs in the NFL and as long as the secondary stays together, we'll shut down whoever is out there. There is NO ROOM for miscommunication and we've seen what that miscommunication has done to us!!

Not that I'm an expert on the game, but I do know a little bit, and in my humble estimation Chris is a great player, fast, aggressive and has the sixth sense that great d-backs have. He knows where the route is going and he is usually ready for it.

Apropo of nothing my son played intramural b-ball with him on his team at Arizona, and he said when McCallister too off his jersey and got out there, just his physical presence alone shut the other team down. Just playing half speed, he led their team to the championship, and led the league in rebounds and scoring.

Only to say, the guy is a winner. I am real glad he's on our side. And the two calls against him last week were total jive.

"Stone Hands " Edwards needs to play up to his pro-bowl status of last year... Even though he made it to the pro-bowl, he was number 1 in dropped passes as well last year,( he probably is this year as well) The Browns have the talent, but yet have proved to use it effectively. Play calling, time management,stupid penalties and dropped passes all have lead to the 0-2 start. C'mon Cleveland, you're better than that. McCallister is very good. It should be a good game

calling a wr "stone hands" while mixing in the word "talent" really makes you look stupid.

5 catches and 5 droped passes. Goes to show that fans should not be allowed to vote for the Pro Bowl.
