I thought our O-Line could stand their ground until the game today. And while I hope KC improves and makes adjustments, etc. I fully expect the Ravens to come into this game with the same plan that the Raiders used. Pressure off the edges and tight man coverage with a safety either blitzing or playing the run every down.

Can our O-line juice for the week? I'll be there, but after what our O-line didn't do today, I'm concerned that the Ravens line will have their way with them too. Don't get me wrong, I pray to God we figure a way around the problem, but big-and-strong D-lines tend to cause our O-line just a few problems.

But F*** that, have them eat their Wheaties, run a bunch of quick-slants, and KICK SOME ASS... WOO-HOO!!!

They don't have the corners to man up against Bowe and they are ranked 20th against the pass

I think I read Ed Reed is banged up again and Michael Oher left with an injury.

Ravens passing offense can pose problems, but honestly Flacco is junk. Holds the ball too long, not very accurate.

The Ravens corners can't cover Bowe. They can be run on.

In lieu of starting a new thread, we should use this one to scout the Ravens.

Here's what I like: they lack gamebreaking speed on offense. All of their receivers are possession guys. Also, they only had 27 sacks this year. That's pitiful.

What I hate: I don't see that we have an answer for Haloti Ngata, Kelly Gregg and Ray Lewis. I have posted this about 100 times in the last month. I also hate the fact that they have a huge offensive line. If our offense doesn't come to play, the fact they are a bigger team on both OL and DL could be a factor.

Well I guess it doesn't make much difference at this point -- we almost beat the Ravens on their field with Brodie behind center last year (yeah, yeah, it was the first game, so what)...If we can look more like we did against the Titans rather than the Raiders then great. On paper, I think the Ravens will play us more like the Raiders but honestly who knows...

On the road they are 5-3 with losses to Cincy, New England (in OT), and Atlanta.

Their road wins were against the Jets (by 1), Pittsburgh (by 3), Carolina (by 24), Houston (by 6, in OT), and Cleveland (by 10).

In their past eight games they are 6-2.

They are averaging giving up 17.25 ppg on the road.
They are averaging giving up 16.125 ppg at home.

They are scoring an average of 21.25 ppg on the road.
They are scoring an average of 23.625 ppg at home.

I assume given today's games we'll get the Steelers next season while the Chargers have to deal with the Ravens.

That'd be right. If the Chargers had lost today, they'd actually finished in 3rd place and ended up getting the Texans/Browns instead of the Jags/Ravens.

Of course all that depends on whether they expand to 18 games next year, I guess. Then who knows.

Just like how we used Jones today. If they do the same thing next week, their dead. Wiegmann got overpowered today. He sucks if you try to match him up power for power against massive interior defensive lineman. But he excels if you use him in space.

I'd like to see more runs to the outside with charles. **** thomas jones. He sucks. Use charles in space and he'll do damage. Plus, Ray Lewis is older and doesn't have the same sideline to sideline speed he used to have.

Bonus reason: The number 1 rushing attack in the league. Any team would be hard pressed to stop it.

I'm not saying we'll definitely win, but I like our chances.

The D is one of the oldest in the league, but the DC insists on a 3 man rush for the entire second half of games...they're ready to drop over in the last 5 mins.

Do you think its a coincidence Drew Brees and Philip Rivers improved by leaps and bounds when Cam Cameron was no longer their coordinator?

We have a mediocre offensive line, and Flacco holds the ball way too long...don't sweat it. This game is going to be 'opportunity rich".

No, but at of this point in the season, to me, it seems that the Raven's are much more physical team all-around than KC is at of this point. The only thing that is hurting Baltimore, IMHO, is that they're slowly changing the philosophy from running it hard to air'ing it out. Still, Baltimore has good quality players.

Of course we'll make Flacco look like a superstar and your defense will probably blitz 75% of the time. The biggest issue will be handling the Ravens physicality at the line of scrimmage. Our other big problem is handling teams with a great vertical passing game.

This is interesting...

I honestly thought Cam Cameron was a good OC.

The problem with the ravens Offense:

For the past 2 years at least, Cam has been calling plays for a Run-First offense. In the offseason when the team acquired Housh, Stallworth and Boldin, Cam never created plays to take advantage of all the talent. The plays he did create for the WR's are plain vanilla and are easily defensed.

In other words Cam was comfortable calling the Run-First Offense and he never seriously changed his strategy.

If the Ravens face New England, the secondary will not be able to stop Brady, which means that the Ravens will have to score more than 13 points.

Although the ravens have the players, I do not belive Cam has the intelligence to beat the Pats.

Keep in mind Flacco was injured in two of the four play off games he has been in. Flacco hass been looking much better through the season after hid meltdown in game 4 (Cinci). And yes, Mattison does not blitz as much as Ryan, and they are not nearly as exotic or well disguised. If Mattison does not wear them out the starting Dline is tough to move. But, Mattison may decide to activate as additional secondary body and drop seven in the box. This will assuredly wear out the big men if it happens that way.

They are good at sniffing out draw plays unless Cody is in for Gregg. He has seen limited action, but has been suckered. If they get safety support on draws you'll see Landry is a master of the 80% tackle. The guy can't wrap up. Hasn't been the same since he was almost paralyzed a couple of seasons back. Another glaring weakness is ILB on the right. They have been platooning some nobodys, but Gooden got hurt, so the kid taking over his snaps is actually better.

No I think Flacco will probably have his best postseason performance. 1) Because it'd be hard to be worse than what he's already one and 2) this is his 3rd go round in the playoffs and he should be settled in now.

But that said, it will be interesting because this will be Flacco's first game in Arrowhead. And it will be a playoff game atmosphere, so we do have that in our favor. It won't be a HOF QB that's seen it before.

I remember last year that the Steelers commented how loud the stadium was for the Chiefs and they had half the stadium filled with their fans.

I think this is going to be louder than the season opener. Pittsburgh is crazy, no doubt, but the Chiefs fans on that field in January are rabid.

The crowd has to be into the game from the beginning. Flacco can be rattled. He'll hold the ball forever and he'll give the secondary chances.

Excellent post from a Ravens fan.

We don't have bad receivers. I think Housh and Mason are being overrated by non-Ravens fans, but they're still fairly solid. The issue, of course, is that they're all the same. Not only are they all possession receivers, but really, none of them are even all that close to being a deep threat. I've hardly ever seen our receivers burn anybody this year, and that takes away one of Flacco's best assets, the deep ball. I mean, it literally takes it away for the most part. Sending Boldin on all of those routes may help underneath, but it takes him out of the game.

I think this also could explain why Flacco is putting up such good numbers, but the perception of him and the performance of the offense is down. It may also indirectly explain our poor red zone performance. Flacco has the nice stats, the YPA and the passer rating. That SHOULD make the Ravens offense strong despite struggles in the running game. The problem is how it's getting done, without big plays. If you drive down the field for 80 yards on 10 passes but stall in the red zone, it doesn't do much other than kill the clock and get you a few points. It's basically forced to be a conservative offense without a running game. That severely limits what you can do.

The passing game is good at that kind of thing, getting first downs. But when you have to get several of them just to score a touchdown, your luck is going to run out at some point. It certainly makes sense as a way of explaining the second half struggles. When asked to describe the Ravens' second half offense, you don't think of nightmarish incompetence, you probably just think "bleh" and try to remember what we did. It's just utterly forgettable and once we fail to get one of those first downs, the drive is over. No turnovers, no displays of hapless incompetence, just our offense running in a manner that doesn't support the odds and typically falters.

That's the thing that can happen when you have a bunch of possession receivers who don't excel at getting separation. Reading the thread about regretting the Housh for Clayton swap, I think that point is spot on. Harbaugh (whose drafting and FA philosophy I generally love) and Oz got a little greedy here and didn't think about the big picture. Blind talent accumulation doesn't work if the pieces don't go well together.

So that's pretty much it. The offense needs big plays. Certainly a better running game would help a ton, as Rice rarely busts anything out thanks to the OL (please move Oher to RT, I really don't think LT makes that much more of a difference). But speaking about the passing game, teams just don't respect our big play potential. The Ravens have a growing number of needs in the 2011 draft, but a deep threat would make the top of my list, with the possible exception of LT (which I'd lean towards).

Now, what does this mean for the rest of the offense? How much are they to blame? I absolutely think our run blocking may still be the biggest problem with the offense as a whole. The Ravens had a second year Flacco nursing an injury, terrible receivers, and pass protection that wasn't as great as everyone thinks it was. Yet they ranked close to ten spots higher. Why? Because the run blocking went from one of the best to one of the worst this year with so many players out of position. Our passing game is much more viable when there is good run blocking, because you actually run a real, efficient conservative offense. I think Rice lost a bit of his shiftiness as well, but that's not a huge deal.

Now...Cam and Flacco. I definitely don't think it's Flacco. He's running in an offense that may suit his strengths but doesn't have the type of talent that needs to play to it. Without that deep capability, a big part of Flacco's game is taken away for the most part. He still gets a few big ones out there, but there just isn't enough versatility to work with. I'm also becoming increasingly reluctant to blame Cam. People talk about us not establishing an identity, that's because we can't.

The running game is too weak and the passing game is too one dimensional (based on talent). Now, I don't think he has some secret element that will ruin us if we fire him and a fresh mind with new ideas could be just what we need, but I don't think he has the perfect opportunity to run an explosive offense that we think he does.

RAVENS AT CHIEFS


Strength vs. strength: Kansas City HB Jamaal Charles vs. Baltimore DE Terrell Suggs and OLB Jarrett Johnson

Charles has played amazing football this year. By the time our grades are done for the week (and the season), he’ll likely ending up with the best rush rating for a tailback we’ve had in our three years. Although he still puts up good numbers rushing down the middle, they have been ridiculously good when running to the sides. However in this game, when he runs to the side, he will be met by ether Terrell Suggs or Jarrett Johnson, who both typically play every snap on opposite sides of the field and are spectacular run defenders. It’s worth noting that in the three games Charles played against our top-graded run defenses (Oakland and San Francisco), Charles carried 36 times for 237 yards and a 6.58 yard-per-carry average.


Mismatch: Baltimore LT Michael Oher vs. Kansas City ROLB Tamba Hali

Oher isn’t a bad left tackle, but he’s no particular standout and suffers in comparison with some of his teammates on the Raven line. He’s been whistled for 14 penalties in his first 15 games, and is average as a pass blocker. He will be lined up against Hali, who has provided 5.8 pressures a game this year heading into Week 17 — just a remarkable number, the most of anyone we’ve seen since we started in 2008. He regressed a little midseason, but in recent weeks went back to playing like an All-Pro. It’s also worth noting that Oher sprained his knee against the Bengals, which could make this even more of a mismatch.

Baltimore is ranked 25th in pass protection according to Football Outsiders.

If we score.

The idea I believe he was trying to convey was that he isn't worried about our ability to play well enough on defense but is worried about our ability on offense.

If we score...we win. Not a single touchdown...but generally.Exactly. :thumb:

The Chiefs lose. I guarantee it.

They'll blow in the playoffs.

I hate to say it, but yeah, if we thought last Sunday sucked, this Sunday is just going to blow.

You know it's a bad sign when there are only 4 games this weekend, and the talking heads on NFLN gloss over our game everytime it is mentioned.

5-10 Minute spread on the Colts vs Jets game
5-10 Minute spread on the New Orleans vs Seattle game
"Chiefs play Ravens" <snicker>
5-10 Minute spread on the Eagles vs Greenbay game

I really want to see this team win a game in the post season, but if the line can't handle the Raiders sorry ass rush, then there is no way they will handle the Ravens. And to be honest, game planning hasn't been a strong suit. There is a way to beat the Ravens, but I doubt we see many screens or quick slants on Sunday. It will be R2P2 and we will be embarassed on national television.

I like our chances of keeping this a low scoring game with our defense against their offense but I'm not convinced we can put up 17 on their defense. I think that's the magic number we have to get to for a victory.

I think we can come out and throw on the Baltimore secondary, which would open up things for Charles on the ground.

It all comes down to the line.

As Bwana discussed in the post immediately following yours, if they show up, the Chiefs can move the ball and score.

You wanna know how awesome the Ravens are?

If the Bengals don't miss a chipshot FG and drop a TD pass that gets caught for an INT, they score 10 more points easy and beat the Ravens. IN Baltimore.

I agree.

We absolutely can throw on Baltimore.

IF we can block Ngata, Gregg, Suggs and Lewis on the blitz.

That's a HUGE if.

It's imperative that Cassel and the receivers (read Bowe) read the blitz pre snap and make adjustments.

Converting the Vegas ML into probabilities, a ML of Baltimore -145 / Chiefs +125 corresponds to a 42.5% of a Chiefs win. Seems about right to me. A little bit less than a coin flip. Us winning hardly even qualifies as an upset.

Fuck the "Baltimore as a juggernaut" storyline. It's a joke.

I hesitate to believe that the Chiefs will win a playoff game while I am still walking this veil of tears.

However, if Haley can get it done, he will deserve all praise and glory. I like the idea of kicking the Ravens' ass and using their tailfeathers to decorate my headband.
