How is it possible with all of the injury woes in the Raven's secondary, that we don't even talk to a free agent all-pro like Ty Law? Yes, he is past his prime, but for several games, we have had 75% of our starting secondary on the sidelines. Now 50% of them are on IR. Just not sure how someone like that does not even get a chance given our current situation.

Duh...

It's not that we lost 3 games it's how we lost them. Despite losing 3, 2 of those games were so close they could have easily been wins. We lost momentum when we played Pittsburg but went on a campaign and gained it back. That's what I saw, and that is the mark of a playoff team. The Ravens are pretty good right now and despite being good they are still learning.

For now I say we are going to outscore the Giants by 7 to 10 points if not more.

give the giants the repect they earned by beating the 18-0 partiots, i know every body takign about the ravens no 1 run def of 64.yard a game, but yet they are 6 -3, you guys have a one diemnional def, while the gaints can stop the run, and have the best past rush, and our secondary has had a pick in the last 3 games, we have the best overall def compared to you guys, you young rookie qb will get sacked and he will get pick off of of these 2 will happen to him, im looking for plaxico to havea break out game vs you guys as well of kevin boss who has a td in the last 3 games, it gonna be hard fought game but giants will win, 27-17
Everyone respects the Giants. And they go into this game as the favorite.

However, if the Giant players have your attitude, they can be beaten by the Ravens. After all Cleveland beat them and they barely beat the Bengals(!!) and the Steelers, so it's not impossible.

Beating the Patriots was last year. This is a new year and a new team.

Best overall def? not at all. The Ravens have been locking teams up with 3 starters down in the backfield, and got 4 picks last week with just our #2 DB back (Rolle).

Its going to be a hard fought game, like Giants-Steelers and Titans-Ravens (or Steelers-Ravens), in that it will come down to a few plays, but neither team is hands down better than the other, in any category. Except that the Ravens have the best run defense in history.

I say 24-21 Ravens, but I wouldnt put money on either team

it gonna take more then run def to beat a good team who can also past, and ravens secondary is weak, what the point of stoping the run when they cant defend againt the past, in other words a i would not be bankng on the run def to help you ravens win this game, let not forget about the gaint run def ranked 7th, and has a great pass rush, with a rookie QB(even though he not really playing like a rookie) come on you know he gonna sacked or be forced into a bad pass, CB corey webset is having a great season he has excellent hands, look for him to coem up big, it gonna be a great game anything can happen

Perhaps because when teams become one dimensional they tend to have a harder time.

The Ravens devour backs like Jacobs. See Eddy George and Corey Dillon. Jacobs doesn't survive the first half.
called that one right
