Good article. The O-line has been terrific and given Flacco a chance to progress and learn. Their coach also deserves a lot of credit, as does Cameron, whose play calling has kept defenses off balance.

Cameron is the best O coordinator in the league. You are lucky to have the best D and O coordinators in the league on the same team.

It's not luck it's called hiring the right people, something the Orioles can't do well.
I liked the play where Heap faked falling down and got up and caught the pass.
Jeffro, the Ravens basher from down south, it's not luck but it is good fortune and we will enjoy it!

If starting 2-0 is part of a rebuilding year, I can't wait until the project is completed!!! The Squealer game will be very telling! Lets Go Flacco!

I think the key as Preston mentioned is game-planning. We have to go with our strength and not abandon the run. I liked Billick, but his biggest fault was abandoning the run when we had the lead or on 3rd and short plays. He tried to get fancy and too often it led to interceptions and 3 and outs. This staff will stick with the run if that's what works. If you can hold the ball for 13 minutes in the 4th quarter, you're going to win alot of games.

Right on articule. I couldn't agree more. Billick's gone, Ogden's gone. Now we can get down to real hard nosed, intergerity laced football. Flacco fine, learning like a sponge. A great arm with a coaching staff perfect for him and the whole team. This is Baltimore football the ole Baltimore Colts fans can appreciate. Let's head to Pittsburgh. Go Ravens!

They make defensive lineman beg, They make linebackers reel
They turn veterans to mush, and make rookies squeal
The Blackbird's O-Line, baby, ours and ours alone
I'm here to tell ya, that they're bad to the bone

the key to this season is the offensive line. The Ravens will go as far as this line can take them. Flacco will succeed or fail as this line plays.

Despite loss, Steelers best in division
Tuesday, September 23, 2008

The Steelers are going to win the AFC North Division. Let's get that straight right at the top. As badly as they played in Philadelphia Sunday, they still are better than Baltimore, Cleveland and Cincinnati. They will prove that again Monday night when they smack down the Ravens at Heinz Field.

I'm thinking something along the lines of 35-10.

Seriously.

the O-line will only get better. the coaching staff continues to allow the players to do what they do best. they never ask anyone to do something that they are not good at. everyone made a big deal out of what a harder training camp would do to the tea, so far it looks like the harder training camp has produced a more physical team on both sides of the ball. Jason Brown dominated Shaun rogers at the point of attack, Grubbs and Yanda opened up holes inside, and Gaither, Terry and Anderson sealed everything on the outside. so much for the new and improved Cleveland Browns

Are you serious, with the way Philly smacked around big Ben with such ease. the ravens will get to Ben with a variety of blitzes. Baltimore will establish dominance on the defensive side of the ball. They will run the ball effectively, and ask Flacco to do just enough to pull the upset and put a death grip on the division

Ogden was hurt and very frustrated by Billick's play calling and BB's lack of a smash mouth power game. When not injured, Ogden was a force. This is a good situation, though, in that our young guys have a chance to develop.

No doubt, bringing in Anderson and Neal are two more feathers for Ozzie's hat not to mention how this young line he drafted has progressed so quickly.

I was wondering about the "#78 is an eligible receiver" announcements in the fourth quarter. A-ha! It was when Anderson came in as well.

Now I'm wondering when we will see a pass to Adam Terry.(Just send somebody else deep, though.)

Ron Cook ... who cares what he says?

(It's more fun reading the Browns' fans' blogs anyway.)

THis is the plus side of tougher training camp (the downside being injuries). Just as Harbaugh had predicted, in both games the Ravens have been better able to press and execute late in the game. 15 minutes of posession in the 4th quarter is great.
