Not a #1 cb. But servicable none the less. The guys will make the occasional play, but won't shuy anyone down.

LOL

Holy crap I thought I'd never say that.


It always amuses me when fans of a good team start acting like the sky is falling when something they've been great at for years is suddenly only average. Oh noes, we're not top 5 any more! Rolling Eyes

This year's average Ravens defense is still about 5x some of the garbage us Raiders fans (and Chris Johnson) have had to tolerate for the past decade.


Except the thing is, we went from top 3 to bottom 6 in a single year while only losing 3 starters from last season. Then we gained one back and lost 2 more, yet it appears we may have improved (could also be the opponents faced) since that. But the fact remains -- the Ravens defense is nowhere near what it once was.

2012:
27th in YPG
26th in PYPG
26th in RYPG
13th in PPG

2011:
3rd in YPG
4th in PYPG
2nd in RYPG
3rd in PPG

I don't think losing Redding, Jarret Johnson and Suggs is enough to account for that big of a drop across all categories. It's definitely impacted by them, but a lot of it is scheme and the fact that Pees is a lot more passive than Pagano and thus giving up a lot more plays.

Let's see how Johnson does in Baltimore. With all the injuries to their defense they need all the help they can get.

If he can't, then Jimmy Smith's injury is worse than we thought.


You called it. Looks like Jimmy Smith won't be back for another 6 weeks.

Any update on the contract they signed him to? I assume since he cleared waivers he had to sign a different contract than the one he signed with KC but maybe I'm mistaken.

Sad Who isn't banged up on the Ravens' defense. The only returning starters from last year's team that aren't dealing with injuries limiting their play are Pollard and Cary Williams.

When did he rush for 2k yards?

Or is that the amount of yardage he gives up through the air in a year?

Im pretty sure you watch our defense sunday. Im pretty sure you seen what our franchise has looked like the last 9 years. Chris Johnson could have went to about 27 other teams and would have been in better shape.

I'm not denying that. I'm supporting GTR's laughing at the "proper modern day defensive scheme" comment.

All i knew about him was that he was supposedly extraordinarily fast. Other than that, I'm not quite sure to how good he actually is as a cornerback. Are the Ravens getting themselves a good DB, or just an athlete?
