I'm predicting,the 'sound' of the name...'Dwight',shall discombobulate Raven's offensive tackle"J.Dwight Gaither.The haunting effects of squelching his namesake will have him seeing shadows of 'Dwight' Freeney, running "smashmouth",all over my pal Flacco!

Freeney is hurt and might be limited on Sunday. Funny that wasn't mentioned.

Either way, unless Baltimore can control the clock by pounding the ball on the ground, it's going to be a long Sunday afternoon.

Freeney will embarrass Gaither...just like he did Ogden everytime they met. I expect to hear the boo birds out in full force on Monday in regards to the play of our O-line.

Go get him Jared. No doubt you well do better than Ogden did. Our offensive line is better than it has ever been in Ravens history, and getting better..

FireTrembley,

Freeney is a great pass rusher, but he never embarrassed Ogden. In fact Freeney, only has 2 career sacks against Ogden. If Freeney is healthy (which apparently he isn't) it will be a long day for Gaither. With or without Freeney, it will be a tough day for the Ravens. They never play well against the Colts and never seem to get any pressure on Manning. Prediction (unfortunately): Colts 24, Ravens 13.

You must not have watched those games. Sacks or not Freeney got past Odgen all day long and put pressure on the QB. You realize that sacks aren't the be all end all statistic of QB pressure right??? I remember the Colts Ravens game where Freeney embarrassed Ogden...the announcers were saying how it looks like Ogden and really lost a step and that the Ravens needed to put a TE over there to help him. Please don't comment if you don't actually watch the games.

I seen games that Freeney handed Olgden his lunch, but also seen games that Olgden made Freeney a non factor. Olgden played injured for a long while with his toe, and Freeney would do his spin move. and run right by him. In any case its going to be a long day for Gaither,Freeney is too good and too experienced, to be a equal match for Gaither. Freeney will give the rookie some real experience. Long day for the ravens, prediction 27 to 10 Colts

For once, I have to agree with FireTrembley. Regardless of the actual sacks, Freeney was a very tough matchup for Jonathan Ogden. He just seemed to be too fast. I had never seen a DE get by Ogden the way the Freeney did.

Clearly BostonRaven is a total poseur and knows nothing about the Ravens.

There was one game - in 2006, I think - that Freeney ate up JO. That's probably the one that sticks out, because it was so rare to se JO get beat (until last year). In the other two games, including the playoff game we blew, JO dominated.

I really hate to say this but Freeney is going to eat this kid up. Worst of all this means Flacco will be running to his right all day and we all know what this means. Man I hope I have to eat these words!!!

No, it's easy.
Gaither is 330lbs. Lorenzo Neal is 260. And Mclain is 250. Just pummle his *ss.

That's what he would want. He's a speed guy. You run at him and he goes around you and nails the QB. The way to counter a speed rusher is to have a tackle that can match his quickness. Few in the NFL have shown the ability to match Freeney's quickness.
