FLACCO AND RAVENS SEARCHING FOR CHIEFS DEFENSIVE SCHEME
September 9th – 12:35 PM

The Chiefs are a mystery to the Ravens. After a preseason which the Chiefs kept things pretty vanilla, the Ravens aren’t quite sure what to expect from the new-look Chiefs.

“We obviously have to prepare for a handful of looks and see what kind of direction that they’re going to go in as the game goes,” QB Joe Flacco said. “Right now we understand that they are new team with a new head coach and we understand that they will come out wanting to go and fight for him. They will feel like they have something to prove.“

Simply finding a starting point to prepare for the somewhat unknown Chiefs defensive looks can be tricky. The Ravens are tossing out Chiefs tape from last season and focusing on personnel from the preseason, along with defensive coordinator Clancy Pendergast’s schemes from a season ago in Arizona.

“I don’t think that you look at too much video of the actual Chiefs from last year,” Flacco said. “You look at their preseason games and then you try to get a feel for what their defensive coordinator has done in the past. That’s what we’re going to do and we’ll go from there.“

Flacco re-iterated throughout his conversation today that success against the Chiefs will be all about adjusting to defensive looks as the game goes on.

“We’ll just kind of have to see what their approach is as the game goes on,” Flacco explained. “Right now it looks like they are playing pretty well up front. Their front seven is doing a good job at stopping the run and getting to the quarterback.“

Looks like the Chiefs have the Ravens guessing on more things than just the quarterback situation.

Doesn't really matter if the Ravens Offensive can't move the ball, the defense can score for them...

The pessimism in these threads is a little over the top. Carl and Herm are gone.

So what if we lose. At least there is some hope for the future now.

I assume they've probably spent as much time watching Cardinals tape as they have Chiefs tape, if not more, to try and discern how the hybrid is going to work.

Because that would waste too much time trying to get everyone to quit laughing. :grr:

Anyone check the SI power rankings today?

Ravens are ranked #4.

Chiefs are ranked #31.

They said:

"If I were the Chiefs, I'd be very, very careful about playing a gimpy-legged Matt Cassel at quarterback against a Baltimore defense that gets even more geeked than usual when it's playing at home. Far better to see Cassel miss a game than an entire season."

Listened to the audio of the press conference a few minutes ago, and he (Harbaugh) really went on about the defense and Hali. It was coachspeak, obviously, you never talk down your opponent, but he sounded genuine. Talked about how hard they play, how fast, young and talented they are.

He clearly doesn't read the planet as much as he should.

I have not felt this good about a season since we signed Lew Bush and Carlton Grey...

I mean come on folks. We have finally flushed the turd (Carl and Herm) so we have plenty of reasons to be upbeat.

I want to see progress and improvement in all phases, but I'm not expecting us to compete this year. To do so would be setting us up for a huge disappointment.

I can't wait til week 6 or so when the Chiefs start to win a few games and some start bitching about it screwing up our draft pick. This season isn't about the W/L column, its about making progress. For the first time in my adult life I feel like this franchise is on the cusp of building a winning program, not just a fluke 13-3 year with an early exit from the playoffs. Be patient, have faith.

I'm rooting for Tamba.

He's the kind of person, who if successful on the football field, one can proudly point to and say he represents the best we have to offer.

To this point, however, all we have, really, is hope.
