No question DC has great corners, but let us not forget that have no pass rush to speak of. Screens and slants are a QB's best friend! Go Ravens!

Slightly flawed facts in this article. The Redskins don't have 2 "starting" corners, per se. They have Carlos Rogers and Deangelo Hall man the "outside" WRs, while Springs plays almost exclusively in the slot or as a safety. And Fred Smoot is definitely #4 on the depth chart. But other than that, spot on. The Redskins have the best secondary in the league. 6 starting DBs on one roster. There's a reason Drew Brees, Kurt Warner, Tony Romo, and Eli Manning have all had their worst offensive outputs of the season against this Redskins defense.

Ravens are on the up and up, no doubt but for the redskins enough is enough. They need to win, if the offense shows up(don't worry ravens fans) I like our chances. But if the past few weeks are any indication than it most likely wont happen. Anyway, that still doesn't mean I don't want the skins to come out on top. Here's to a great game with no injuries. HTTR!

p.s. ravens fans are nothing but a bunch of disgruntle redskins fans anyway!

LOL! Doesn't say much for 'Skins fans then, huh? They are so fair weather, they'll drop their own Burgundy and Gold allegiance and root for Purple?

That's what you think a 'Skins fan is? And you think that's an insult to us Ravens fans?

What are you aaying anyway? Your a idoit. You make no sense. "A great game without no injuries". What do you think your going to watch? Grade school football. This is the NFL. You better turn on 3's Company or Sponge Bob. Enjoy the game with your "boy friends".

Hail to the Deadskins! Hail Misery!

I cannot wait until Joe Cool lights up the secondary, and turns the lights out on irrational DC fan.

What a fitting name "All Kneel to Zorn" sounds like a homo ritual the Foreskins practice prior to the game.

Again you prove that you are the "Idiot of New Freedom" and all surounding cities and states. Your level of sports knowledge is much more suited for attending a jr. highschool's girls field hockey game. If I thought you had more than 27 cents in your pocket, I'd give you the five points and the deadskins. Oh yeah but than I'd have to chase you around New Freedom and Shrewsbury for the money.

When is the last time the Ravens had a QB who sounds so football smart when being quoted? Flacco, for a rookie has a seemingly veteran knowledge of the game, something that the blundering Boller never impressed me as having, even after five years in the league. I never recall Boller making any kind of intelligent assessment before a big game like that. Never.

Let me educate you, very few Ravens fans used to be Skins fans. I know personally that for several years my favorite team was however was playing the Redskins that week. I also happen to have family in the NFL so I could root for their team. You will see the hate on Sunday night when we monkey stomp the Skins in M&T Bank.

Boller was just a perpetual puppy. He would talk faster than his brain could process what he was saying. It was all very well-intentioned and he never said anything bad, but you just wanted to shake him and say, "will you call the eff down!"

Flacco has a fantastic mentality for a QB. He's able to echo the "one game at a time" approach passed down by the coaching staff and he never gets ahead of himself.

As for Boller, it just always seemed like he had a reinforced steel barricade right in his path to improvement in crucial areas (leading receivers, quick release, looking off defenders, etc). He had great athleticism, a great arm, a great attitude, and he was pretty tough for all the shots he took, but that's kind of where it came to a screeching halt in front of that steel barricade. Maybe that was because he could never improve under Billick or without a coordinator worth his salt. I hope he catches on somewhere and has success, but he's going to have to find a way thru or around that barricade.

BTW, if anyone is interested we will be skewering and roasting a pig before the game at our tailgate party to symbolize the skewering the HOGS are going to get during the game. I suggest this be the food de jour for all tailgate parties.

Now that's what I'm talking about very nice.

Now getting to Boller, I say make him a TE for us Ravens. He's taken some punishment and held up fairly well.
