Default Denver Broncos vs Baltimore Ravens : Strategery Thread: Pravda Reboot

In a amazing game that no one could possibly see coming, the Ravens somehow pull off the upset of the century and beat the Colts at home. Looks like Denver might see the Ravens next week. In case they do, as a contingency how do the Broncos plan on beating them?

Shut them down in Baltimore last month. This time around Lewis, Suggs and McClain should help in the running game but beyond that not much has changed. Hopefully the "let's do fot Ray mojo" is spent beating Indianapolis today, not that it would save them from what's in store a week from now. In a perfect world we beat them by a couple of TDs without having to show too much of our hand since the template is already in place. Shutdown Ray Rice, make Flacco beat you with his arm, on offense run the ball keep em honest force them syphon off help to their already depleted secondary. The only TDs they scored were late in the fourth in garbage time last game. PFM should have a field day as will the defense after they build a sizable lead.


Broncos 37 Ravens 13

Broncos need to avoid:
WRs with the dropsies
RBs with fumblefingers
LG and RG with blitz brainfartz
LBs that overrun plays
DEs that don't play the run
and safeties that cannot recognize & stick with TEs.
we fix those and we'll be awesome.

The game was tight until the pick six before half...

I'm concerned about the Ravens playing for Ray.. But I like that it's a home game.

They would have won if we had not scored so much.

Last game kept Rice under 40 yards, held Boldin to zero catches, Flacco had a dismal day as well. Looks like RR has a case of the fumbles, the defense did a good job generating pressure on Luck. Kuper is back, Manning was only sacked 21 times with 19 of those coming while he was out of the line up.

The Play for Ray mantra ran its course today... jsut ask Indy how easy it is to ride the same emotional wave two weeks in a row .. on the road no less against a superior team.

The Ravens wont have ANY of that mojo next Saturday at 5,200 feet where Ray Ray .. and the rest of their aging D ... will really start to feel his/their age and realize it really is time to hang it up!

Can we all please stop with this stupid nonsense of playing for somebody. It does not propel you to win. Did the Colts not play for Pagano? Sure they did, but it didn't make them win. These are the playoffs, every player will have high emotions one way or the other. That kind of nonsense is right up there with God wanted us to be victorious.

So please, don't be concerned about them "playing for Ray". The only thing that stuff is good for is newspaper articles.

Were you born yesterday or just the day before ?

WTF do you mean emotional motivation does not help a team ?

It only goes so far. The ravens had scored only 3 points until the last drive of the half, it's not like they came out firing on all cylinders

Everyone is pumped up and motivated in playoff games. Any extra emotional motivation is honestly pretty meaningless.

Contradicting yourself. I was at the game, it wasn't lopsided in the first half. Too many people are overlooking the opponent at hand. Funny how most teams win after emotional events.. But they are just newspaper articles right?

I agree and the great Bill Parcells used to always say the bullentin board material/play for whatever reason is for hype leading up to the game. It means absolutely nothing once the ball is kicked off.

Stop the run and force Flacco to do his best Mark Sanchez impression.
Get Moreno rolling and let Manning do his thing.
Unleash VonDoom

Game over.

No slow start. I would much rather take their hearts out early instead of letting them have hope in the 2nd half.

I honestly feel that with all of the comfortable wins to wrap up the regular season, Denver hasn't really shown the 'good stuff' to be used against them on film.

Rat birds are doomed.

Hoping to hold off on the "good stuff" until the Texans or Patriots come to town.

Plus that Peyton Manning game where he has 4 TDs and 300 yards by halftime hasn't happened yet this season.

I expect a tight game for a 1.5/2 quarters. Joe Flacco will **** the bed, and the stars on defense are too old to bail him out for an entire game.

Broncos 27
Ravens 14

upset of the century? Wow.

http://linemakers.sportingnews.com/odds
Ravens were favored by all the major books.


Anyhow....The Broncos have opened as 9.5-point favorites against the Ravens with the total set at 45.
