Ravens threw 18 of first 22 times vs 31st worst team vs the run

Recommended Posts

After the succesful running game last year under Kubes, the Ravens hired a pass happy

Coord from Chicago. A lot of fans said there goes the run game which was ranked around

#15 before Sundays game vs SD..

 

So last Sunday vs SD who has the 31st worse team vs the run, the Ravens went pass happy

throwing 18 of the first 22 plays.

 

In fairness SD over loaded the box with run blitzes and weren't too worried about their anemic

receiving corps. It work as SD led at half time but eventually they would lose as Ravens adjusted

and ran more in the second half and won.

 

Ravens will see a lot more of the over load the box defense with Ds not worrying too much about

their WRs.

You have to take what they give you.

 

What teams know is that Joe doesn't throw well under pressure. They don't fear the Ravens receivers.

So...stack the box, run blitz, which also is a form of pass blitzing, and try to live in the Ravens backfield.

 

Givens could help by catching some big plays and burning some D's deep.

Joe needs some quick outlet and dump off passes that gain some YAC yards. When the LB's and safeties press the line that does expose a defense.

I'm sure the Ravens coaches and players know this.

They just can't execute it....yet.

 

Yet because the rumors are that this is one thing they are working during this bye week.

Expect to see more of Gilmore, Williams and Boyle going out rather than staying in to block. They have to pull the LB's and safeties back and burn them.

Givens going deep. Force teams to defend the whole field.

Maybe one of these new guys works the slot like Brady's guys do.

 

Force teams to defend the whole field and the Ravens will be off and running like last year.

Couldn't agree more, Max. We've got to open up the downfield routes so we can get 'chunk' yardage. The passing game will then set up the running game too.

 

But, are our receivers talented enough? That's what bothers me.

Maybe Suggs. We have no idea what Perriman is. Monroe has played a lot. It is more losing guys in the game. You can make adjustments with a week of practice. You can only dress 46 on game day so a reserve DL or WR that could help is not dressed.

It was a rhetorical question. Injuries hurt every team, to decide which do and don't matter is incredibly subjective

Obviously not if SD completely discarded them in first half.

 

Trestman should have run earlier instead of later.
