The return of McAllister won't help much unless the D finds a pass rush. The Eagles had success slowing the Pats down because they knocked Moss around at the line and put pressure on Brady.

With our offense good for at least one TD the other way (INT or fumble return) coupled with the fact that it will be a Monday night game, the deck is stacked against our Team. Hopefully they will play with some pride and discipline and not embarrass themselves.

An upset of the Pats might just salvage a smidgen of respectability for what has otherwise been a season in a woeful tailspin.

Chris should not play unless he is 100%. He could damage the knee and subject himself to further game absences. The crazy thing is that if the secondary could perform better the Ravens could win the game. "Any given Sunday" But then we lose draft spots by winning games.

This is going to be the ugliest game of the year. I forsee the game to be 42-10. Patriots win.

Doesn't matter if we had the 2000 Ravens D and the 1994 49ers offense. Billick would still find a way to lose this game. 38 - 14 Patriots.

there have been a few teams this year to get pressure on brady but the problem is all of them ran out of gas midway through the third quarter and then he did his thing. your only hope is to keep substituting all game and have your defense fresh enough to blitz through the end of the game. the pats have come to play hard for 60 minutes all year and a lot of other teams arent prepared like that. they wont let up, even if the ravens do.

mcalister playing at 10% is better than any other corner they have. If we protect boller (1st time for everything) and all these guys play -dont be surprised if we shock the world people. I dont know how johnson is going to make tackles with (only)his left hand though...
