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.

    • Woman has to know her place....
    • As far as I know, Eminem is the only rapper to list his favorite rappers in a song.   His top rappers are:   1.  Reggie  (His uncle) 2.  Jay-Z 3. Tupac 4.  Biggie 5.  Andre 3000 6.  Jada 7.  Kurupt 8.  Nas 9.  Eminem   Being last does not offend him, he made the list.   Either way, the spirit of God lives in us.
    • Very sad... He was a part of so many amazing tunes.   
    • I don't like anything about Frank Sinatra, tbh.    His music was before my time, but I enjoy a lot of other music and film from that era. I'm from the Midwest and it's hard for me to relate to those songs. They all seem to have a New York/Vegas feel to them (and not in a good, Sonic Youth way). A lot of it seems... insincere, for lack of a better word. I kind of compare it to today's teen bop bubble gum type music where the personality and public persona and "coolness" factor of the artist are as important as the actual music. However, like I said, I wasn't alive at the time to know whether that is the case or not.   Maybe I just don't get it (like many people don't get rap or jazz) but what Sinatra did doesn't sound like singing to me. He didn't seem to have any vocal range. He didn't play instruments (that I know of) or dance. It's really bewildering to me that he is such a cultural icon.    His persona is grating, to me. I never like performers whose image is rich/smooth/connected. Just not my cup of tea.    It also seems to me that Sinatra wasn't that great of a guy, either. I know that there is a culture gap between his generation and mine, so I won't judge him too harshly about what his social views were w/ regard to race and gender equality, but his coziness with organized crime figures ( ie murderers) is troubling.   All of this is just my opinion, of course. I'm not a Frank Sinatra expert, by any means. He just appears, to me, as the antithesis of everything that I enjoy about art.   He's on my short list (along with Gene Simmons, Andy Warhol, L. Ron Hubbard, Ronald Reagan) of sainted cultural icons who didn't actually contribute anything of value to their respective fields. Again, jmo... your definition of value might differ from mine. 
    • Not to mean this in an argumentative way but the changes in the Colts winning ways was started by Harbaugh. We were one play from reaching the super bowl against the Steelers. Take away the illegal TD that Stewart caught and that game may have had a different turn out.
  • Welcome New Members

    •   Sorry to keep harping on the Irish thing, but did you know the horseshoe has seven points on it?  (The Colts horseshoe, anyway.  Actual shoes for horses depend on the farrier).   Seven is considered a lucky number...  Lucky.  Luck.  I'm telling you, you picked the right team to root for.   7    
    •   Don't hold Boston against the Irish.  It's not our fault.    We love our green, which makes Indiana a tearmann.   I love it that you chose to root for an underdog instead of the Pats.  I don't think it's coincidence that you became a fan around the time Luck got drafted to the Colts.  That's providence.     Horseshoe?  Luck?  Four-leaf clover?  Come on.  Hoosier Hospitality has roots in Irish fun-lovery.  If you're lucky enough to be Irish, you're lucky enough!  May the luck of the Irish be with you!
