Default Baltimore sportswriter oozes contempt for Broncos.

http://www.baltimoresun.com/sports/r...7763082.column

some excepts:

this first one is the title of the piece.

Quote:
Ravens aren't afraid of Broncos' overrated passing attack
Quote:
Both groups are overrated, but Denver is more overrated. When you take a deep look at the Broncos offense, you see a group that is soft and a passing game that's vanilla.
Quote:
Denver's major problem is that the Broncos haven't played a team as physical as the Ravens, and when you're as one-dimensional as Denver, that means trouble.
Quote:
Denver runs a West Coast offense, one predicated on short passes that are almost like running plays.
what Shanny ran a West Coast offense. i don't think McD's offense is classified as West Coast. at least this is the first time i've ever heard anyone say that McD's offense was West Coast. am i missing something here?

Quote:
It's a pea-shooter offense.
Quote:
He (Orton) might hit the 300-yard mark in Baltimore, but it will be more out of desperation than sticking with the game plan.
Quote:
That's true, but let's not go overboard. These are the Broncos. It's a new coach, but the same old act.
do you guys see now why i have such little respect for the Ravens fanbase? there's very little analysis in his column. just statement of opinion as fact. this guy (Mike Preston) is a huge Ravens homer. he's also the guy who made it his mission in life to write column after column criticizing Brian Billick and trying to get Billick run out of town.

IIRC, i linked to one of his columns last year where he demonstrated similar contempt for the Broncos.

the Ravens may well win on Sunday. we'll soon enough find out. but this Ravens team is not an elite team, no matter how fervently their followers believe them to be. they barely squeaked by the Jets (by 1 point). they lost to Cincinnati. they only beat Cleveland by a TD and Pittsburgh by a FG. they haven't accomplished anything yet.

Going into and winning at Tennessee will help Denver know that they can hang with good defenses, even when half of their offense is completely shut down.

Everybody is going to pick Baltimore, they were a pre-season SB AFC favorite. Denver has to do everything right to pull out the win......but they can do it.

I thought it was a spread offense. Doesn't the WCO usually incorporate the TEs way more into the passing game? I guess it really doesn't matter how you classify offenses and defenses these days, there is so much overlap...

Some similarities to the WCO, but more like the spread that Urban Meyer has had success with, definitly not WCO more like run and shoot than WCO IMHO.

It boggles the mind. It really does. It's idiots like this that don't understand exactly why McDaniels was going after Tebow.

last year they played our short passing game really good. we are gonna have to put it deep on them a couple times espeically since Ed Reed is not out there. I dont know about this game seems we could be a trap game for them. Hopefully we can get some what of a run game going. I doubt it though. I am still fumeing we got Maroney. the one running back i cant stand.

It's not a WCO, but what we've been doing with the failure of the running game is nearly identical in idealogy of high %, short passing plays. So it's not like he's WAY off.

I think our passing offense is as good as any in the league right now, and perhaps one of the best we've ever had.
So, with that said, we're still short on the running game, and that's what hurts us at the moment.
This game will be a test for both team. I believe Baltimore is the top rated defense against the pass and we're number one passing offense.
I like our chances there, but then again, it could be tough not having a running game that can keep the Ravens' defense honest...

Early game, east coast and Baltimore has always been a tough customer...
