Sage Rosenfels "carving up" the Ravens secondary? What, with his four interceptions?

This article is right. Once we start playing good quarterbacks that are smart enough to attack our bad corners we will start having problems. Peyton Manning knew this and torched us. With guys like Eli, McNabb, and Romo still on our schedule we will start having some tough times. I'm a fan of the team, but I have to be a realist.

Why didn't the Ravens go after DeAngelo Hall? It didn't take the Deadskins that much money to signed him.

Part of the problem with the secondary today was that Rolle looked lost in his first game back in six weeks and the secodary blew the coverage a couple times for big gains. Hopefully they get this corrected next week.

Good game today. Any road win in the NFL is a good win. However, they are still committing way too many penalties and running to close for comfort on the play clock. Next week starts the meat of their schedule and they are going to have to step up. All that being said they are ahead of anyone's best schedule.

I have never understood all the accolades thrown the way of Samari Rolle. It seems like I see him getting beat, bailing out of tackles more than anyone, and missing tons of games, yet every article paints him as being great. I understand he's an upstanding citizen and classy guy, but I think he's by far the most overrated player they have. I also fear what the NFC East QB's are going to do to him and his bretheren in the secondary.

All those who have written their comments are correct. But somehow the Ravens find a way to WIN.

The Ravens are absolutely in the playoff picture at this point. I mean DAMN, 41 points, all offensive, including 5 TDs? I think it's a crime that people's memory seems to allow them to forget that we HAVE had some great offensive games in the past. Not frequent or consistent, no, but the Ravens have "Had an Offense" for years. Now they're just building a BETTER offense....perhaps this time next year, a Top 10 ranked offense.

We have THE most brutal second half of the season, compared to pretty much any other team right now. AND we have no Bye Week to boot. But f**k it, like Ray Lewis said, "We're just gonna keep rolling on". Heap with 2 TDs, McGahee with 2 TDs, Troy SMITH with a passing TD, Ray Ray with TWO Picks, Monster defensive play.

Yeah, we surely are going to have our hands full with the Giants, Eagles, Redskins, Cowboys, and probably even the Jaguars. But seem to have gotten progressively better each week, in the last several weeks. Both on offense AND defense. Hell, we even had a rookie kicker come in and nail a 54 yarder as his FIRST NFL field goal. Yeah, we need to knock off the penalties (though as always, many of them are BS, JUST because we're the Baltimore Ravens), and we DO need to tighten up in the secondary...but we also have a LOT of pride and confidence and momentum right now, and while we're going to have to play our BEST to earn it, we absolutely can pull some wins out of this remaining schedule.

I was at the game today and Samari did a decent job. That 60 yard play was the result of Ed Reed reacting late to the play over the middle. He began backing up before the ball was snapped and then tried to lull Rosenfels into coming his way, which he did. Reed was about 3 steps late on the pick attempt and subsequently overplayed the receiver leading to a wide open sideline. The secondary played a B- game today. With the excpetion of the two long pass playes they kept the Texan receivers in front of them, and made sure tackles.

I don't understand why we're downplaying the Texans offense. Even with Rosenfels they're one of the highest scoring offenses in the league and we made them look bad. They have a very good receiver core, including probably the best receiver in the league right now. 4 interceptions is not my definition of getting torched. What's the QB rating pile up too? Oh wait....53.9 Yeah he torched us lol

Oh..and did anyone see Owen Daniels? I think he forgot to show up.

The overstated statement continues to hold true,'Good teams are supposed to beat teams with losing records'. We just don't know how "good" the Ravens are until we challenge the better teams in the upcoming weeks. But I also agree with another overstated statement,'A win is a win' and I'll take 6-3 anytime.

What I like about our secondary is we give up a lot of yards in the middle of the field, but then shut them down in the red zone.

That great D-Back Ngata is my fave. Slim, fast and a deadly tackler he is the ultimate corner, rusher, defensive and offensive lineman.

Ok, he looks like Bob's Big Boy out there, but woe to those who try to pass over him. That catch today was one of the best I've ever seen by anyone, especially a lineman! And if he misses it they score cause the receiver was wide open.

Hilarious, and awesome. Love that dude. He's like a killer panda.

Roll on brother Ray, and let's kick a little N.Y. ass next week. Wouldn't that be sweet?

Did anyone see or even hear a Ravens highlight during the Giants/Eagles half-time show? I didn't.

no love on the halftime show but that is perfect we don't want anything getting out about this potent offense. Hopefully the giants look at last years tape and never see us coming.

Ok so we've beat the teams we're supposed to beat, good. We blew the game to Pittsburgh and the refs blew the game vs Tennessee. We've proven we can compete with the best.(not saying Pittsburgh is, they're over rated)I cant wait to see how much more we can improve. If we can pull out at win in NY then I think people will start to talk about us. But, OUR SECONDARY HAS TO STEP UP!!!!!
