It was very loud. Louder than Miami by far, and not nearly as many Ravens fans this time around. Yes, there were a large number of Ravens fans in the city, but Nashville has a very centralized downtown area. Even 500 Ravens fans would look like 5,000 there.

There may have been a lot of fans in certain sections, like behind the Ravens bench, but they definitely weren't as spread out and numerous as in Miami. Walking around the stadium before the game, after the game, and during breaks, it was pretty obvious. In Miami you couldn't turn around without running into a group of Ravens-faithful. In Tennessee you had to seek them out.

As I posted elsewhere, we were in section 104 and were 2 of the only Ravens fans in the entire section. When the Ravens did something good, you could hear a pin drop around us. It was very awkward.

On another note, I definitely agree that the playcalling is far too conservative. In the last Pittsburgh game it was too conservative, and it was again on Saturday. Flacco doesn't struggle against these defenses as much as our coaches think he does. Let him throw the ball to Rice out of the backfield and pick up 4-6 yards a pop instead of trying to jam McClain through a pinhole every play.

We could have very easily lost this game, and I've never been narrow-minded enough to think of football as "wins and losses" only. If Cam called these tough games the way he called our "easier" games, I think he would be pleasantly surprised with Flacco's ability to move the ball through the air on 1st and 2nd down, rather than putting him in 3rd-and-long situations every series. I'm not asking for high-risk passes...but I also don't think Flacco will make high-risk throws anyway. He hasn't lately at least. Every time we unchain him, he impresses everyone. Cameron just needs to have faith in our offensive line and our young quarterback.
