You played hard for 60 minutes against the #3 scoring offense. they scored 30 points and more for 6 straight games.

You didn't pack it in and quit.

Sorry...I needed the roster card to figure out who was playing.

And....I loved that behind the line tackle by the hair Zadarius Smith made.

Pees Had Terrific Scheme To Slow High-Flying Steelers Offense

Let’s be clear: The game wasn’t going to be close unless the Ravens figured out a way to keep quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh offense from running wild. Ravens Defensive Coordinator Dean Pees came up with a terrific scheme that worked. In exchange for giving the Steelers room to run the ball and complete all the over-the-middle passes they wanted, Pees girded up the back end with five defensive backs and concentrated on limiting the big plays for which Roethlisberger and the Steelers are known. Bingo! The Steelers ran the ball right down the field on their first drive (before being stopped on fourth-and-1), ended up averaging 5.5 yards per rush on the day and rolled up 21 first downs, but their longest passing play was just 27 yards, a pittance to them. And let’s be clear about something else: Unlike some other games in which Pees devised a scheme that could work, the players executed his plan beautifully this time. The defense tackled with conviction, pressured Roethlisberger, and most importantly, gave a sound, airtight performance on the back end.http://www.baltimoreravens.com/news/article-1/The-Breakdown-Eisenbergs-Five-Thoughts-vs-Steelers/45b44ad7-b131-4249-be87-c493d719e2e2

Z was one of the guys we got in the Ngata trade who did nothing this year. He

was injured a lot too and had only 1 sack after starting the year injured.


Z has contributed and played a lot but needs a lot of growing. Ozzie groaned

when Piss drafted Dupree just ahead of us. Apparantly he was high on Ozzie's

board too but the hated rival got him.


Enter Z who made Dupree go in college by taking up so many blockers ala Suggs.

Now we're seeing what Z can do.
