Broncos need big effort from Keith Brooking against Ravens run game

In their running game, which ranks 17th in the league, the Ravens are equal-opportunity rushers.

They spread things around more than most teams when they attack defensive fronts. Where many offenses will have a sweet spot — a place where they have more carries and average more yards than anywhere else on the line of scrimmage — the Ravens have distributed things fairly evenly across their offensive front when they run.

They have similar percentages of their carries going over left guard, right guard and center. The right guard usually is on the offense's strong side (where the tight end lines up) so that's not all that surprising.

But the Ravens have been particularly effective running to the weak side

The last time the Broncos saw the Patriots, the Patriots piled up 251 yards rushing against Denver's defense, 140 of those coming when the Broncos were in their nickel (five defensive backs) package.

The Patriots have been one of the most active teams in running to the weak side and they did it a lot in that Oct. 7 game against the Broncos.

The Ravens figure to do so as well.

Nice video there. I like what Caldwell said about leaning on other coaching for guidance as well as the command structure for how plays are given & distributed to Flacco. Just don't rely on Caldwell exclusively for goal line yardage alone please. Make sure HC John Harbaugh approves the play 1st. Thank you.

I will be honest, time constraints allow me to peruse articles, sometimes copy & paste parts, but often go back later to read them in total as in AM , i am often just looking for interesting topics to post for all to read / discuss

In all honesty, though I read the article u mention with the video, but i hadnt watched the video, normaly will will sooner or later though but as u noted it now will

OK JUST DID < alot was word for word from article & yes was good, did add a bit more than just in article but main pointsd were samme I thing, he sounds confident though

Baltimore — With the forecast calling for rain here today, Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning experiemented with wearing a glove on his right passing hand late in the practice week.

 

The gloves used primarily by NFL receiver add tackiness to the grip. Experimenting with the glove, thoough, doesn’t mean Manning will wear it during the game today against the Baltimore Ravens.

 

 

WILL IT RAIN , here says 2nd half 

 

At 7:30 this morning, the Baltimore skies are overcast but there’s no rain. The Weather Channel just pointed out the rain is not expected to fall until the second half and it may not roll in until tonight. The temperature is supposed to reach 52 degrees so at least it wouldn’t be rain and cold.

Jim Caldwell has never has to call plays at the NFL level, ever.  This is his first gig under the gun.  I know he was around Tom Moore, Clyde Christianson, and Peyton Manning a lot, but you can only absorb so much. The rest comes from within in the heat of the battle.  Weather in Baltimore isn't going to be bad, so I expect Peyton to score.  Can Jim Caldwell call a game to keep up?

 

I say Peyton and the Broncos prevail.

Of Manning's 19 sacks this season, 17 have come with Kuper not in the lineup and Manny Ramirez on the field in place of the Broncos' offensive captain.

((( to me thats more than miscommunication as Fox Says in the article, to me thats a Ramirez problem )))

      My morning routine involves a devotional and then 80s on 8 on XM(Gospel on Sundays) but also not much of a SportsTalk Fan unless they are talking JY3 and/or Princeton but my Sister listens to them daily during the school year
    • TY Hilton loves playing for Chud
      An improved line will be very helpful, too.   I remember Moncrief last year talking about a package called the 'Indy 500', where he, Dorsett, and TY were all on the field going deep.   With those 3 WRs we have 3 sub 4.4 guys, plus we have a few more burners in the guys competing for the 4th (and possibly 5th/6th WR spot).    There shouldn't be a secondary in the league that can match that group consistently, assuming Luck has a little bit of time to let plays develop. 
    • Preseason might be revealing
      I'd like 18 too. but i dont see the NHL as brutal as the NFL. not near the collisions.
    • TY Hilton loves playing for Chud
      Yeah T.Y. Is a real competitor. I remember Pagano at the podium after the Jags loss last season saying he wasn't embarrassed but then they interviewed Hilton and he said he was embarrassed by the last lost too (against the Steelers). That's when I realized how competitive he is. He should really be voted a team captain this season.
    • The coaches have the ball.
      This is what i see too.  I'm also concerned about depth at WR.  Really on TY and Moncrief have experience. The rest really are question marks at this point.  Last year we seemed sobdeep.  Was it just AJ? Fleener boosted the wr corps too. i'm optimistic, but i dont see the huge talent increase some here do. we do have fresh faces and bodies, along with many coming off IR. im gonna hope thats enuff.  But i still think we need another solid draft to fill some holes.

      When I first saw this thread, I thought I was late to the party, but then I saw that this thread has been going since 2012.   I'm still late to the party, but story of my life.  I joined in 2015, but have been a Colts fan since I was a kid.   My first Colts memory is getting a hat signed by Quentin Coryatt at training camp, and that same year almost going to the SB.   My favorite Colts memory is beating the Pats to get to the SB in 2006.   Favorite Colts:   1. Peyton Manning 2. Marvin Harrison 3. Reggie Wayne 4. Dallas Clark 5. Brandon Stokely   Needless to say, Peyton (#1) and everyone he threw the ball to (#2-5) won me many, many fantasy football games, and are my guys for eternity.   You might assume from my top 5 Colts that I am a "new-age" "fairweather" fan who only likes offense and points.  You are wrong.  I am grateful for the offensive Renaissance in Indy, but Defense is my passion.  My secret top 5 Colts: Bob Sanders, Dwight Freeney, Robert Mathis, Cato June, Gary Brackett.   I want Henry Anderson to help lead a Defensive Renaissance in Indy.  Luck and TY are great, and I hope the OLine is outstanding, but the D is the Key.
    • Member Introductions! (Say Hi!)
      Hey guys,   I have been posting for probably a year or so now.  I reside in Brazil, IN, which is about 20 minutes East of Terre Haute on I-70.  I'm 28 years old and have been a Colts fan since Harbaugh days, but really started following and rooting hard for them after they drafted Manning in 98.  I love our team and my family and I make sure we are ready to rock for every game.  We always have viewing parties at my father-in-laws or my house and are known to holler and scream at the TV!  Hope all is well with all of you, and GO COLTS!
