Don't we have the advantage against the ravens?

17 posts in this topic

Coach pagano knows the defense very well. And I'm sure that he learned the offense well too. Im sure he knows the players inside and out. The only thing the ravens know about is is through Caldwell and Curtis painter and our team is no where near the one last year and 2 years ago...

 

Not to say it is an easy game, it will be very challenging and i am lookiing forward to it. :)

It could help, but no amount of inside info will help if their defense executes. I'd bargain to say that any advantage that we may have could be negated if their defense plays like they are capable of.

Not sure how much this will end up mattering, but while we're at it, don't forget that Arians was the OC for Pittsburgh.

They have coaches too. They will most likely play more different schemes and have different formations.

 

History tells me that, and it's just logic.

Colts have to execute but having Pagano who knows them quite well and Arians who knows how to attack them well.....yeah it does help IMO. You can't say it doesn't.

ANother advantage is Luck vs Flacco. Joe Flacco is garbage. Just watch him stand in the pocket, absolutely zero pocket awareness whatsoever. he's going to get pounded by this defense.

Pagano and Arians both know them well.  However, lots will change year to year.  It could be an advantage, but we shouldn't rely on their history.  We should base our gameplan more on this year's game film

Arians played the Ravens to a draw while he was the coordinator there. Neither team had a significant advantage. 

 

Sure, our coaches will be familiar with their defensive schemes, but I think adjustments and execution will have a lot more to do with what happens on Sunday.

This stuff is pretty overrated. This is the NFL and they have tape on every single player and team. The Ravens have an entire year of tape on our offense and defense just like we on them. Sure Pagano may know a few things that the tape might not say, but the advantage some people think this will give us is very overstated.<br /><br />

Doesn't that also mean that the Ravens have an idea how the Colts would like to attack as well. 

 

This is much ado about nothing.  Execution is how a team will win this game.  Not because of some inside knowledge.

Forget Advantages & Disadvantages. Let's go out play Smart & Physical Football. Let's fire on all Cylinders like we did last week but this time let's play better than that. Each week we should play better than the last. Let's go get this W Fellas

I do not dismiss the idea of having inside knowledge as being trivial.  I have heard many a Tampa Bay Bucs player mention on radio interviews (WDAE) how Gruden prepped their D for the Oakland offensive schemes and formations in the Super Bowl.  They said that almost every play, Gruden was yelling out (code words) the play the Raiders were going to run and their D knew it as well, and made D adjustments to better stop it.

 

Rich Gannon and the high powered Oakland offense threw 5 interceptions, 3 returned for TD's.  OTOH, Baltimore knows Arians tendencies too.  So I agree, execution is still key.  But some inside knowledge may not be bad...

We match up extremely well against the ravens.

 

1. We have been stopping the Run, and Rice has been in a slump

 

2. They have no really big physical receivers, and those receivers are the ones that have been beating our secondary, Vontae Davis should dominate whoever he is placed on.

 

3. Joe Flacco is not a great QB. He is easily confused and our D matches up well against him.

Flacco is garbage? Is he elite like Manning,  Brady, Brees, Rogers? No he isn't. But he outplayed Brady in the AFC championship game and is one dropped pass away from being in the Super Bowl. He is the 12th ranked passer in the league. He is upper middle of the pack for quarterbacks. Not garbage. http://espn.go.com/nfl/statistics/player/_/stat/passing/sort/quarterbackRating/year/2012/seasontype/2

    • 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.

    •   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!
