vmax Posted October 3, 2010 Share Posted October 3, 2010 Preston nails it.... When the game was over, there were only two statistics that mattered more than the final score. The Ravens allowed just one sack, and quarterback Joe Flacco was hurried only two times. That's it, folks. When a team can contain the pass-rushing pressure of a great defensive team like the Pittsburgh Steelers, they're probably going to win. We'll hear about how the Ravens may have saved their season, and how Flacco came of age, but coach John Harbaugh should have presented game balls to offensive tackles Michael Oher, Marshal Yanda, guards Ben Grubb, Chris Chester and center Matt Birk. Yanda and Oher pitched shutouts against two of the best pass rushing outside linebackers in the NFL in Lamarr Woodley and James Harrison. In previous games, Pittsburgh's pressure was relentless. On Sunday, it came to a crawl.http://www.baltimoresun.com/sports/ravens/bs-sp-preston-ravens-1004-20101003,0,4879490.column I was talking to my son during the game about how well Oher and Yanda were playing. That's one hell of a game by the O line. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
