Djax had a good game. Burnt Joe Haden on a play. Vick made terrible reads. Perhaps he needs to go back to prison then be released to get his mind right. I dunno. I was worried about him getting injured, now the decision making is starting to creep in. But Andy needs to stop passing so much and focus more on the run. Eagles will never have a 4,000yd 30TD QB no time soon.

anyway, ravens winning it all wouldn't be a shocker. i do think this team is better than the '01 team on paper. key phrase there being on paper. chemistry and being able to avoid injury is the other thing. clearly, that '01 team was leaps and bounds above this team on defense but the '12 team is much better offensively.
heart and soul of the D is still there with lewis. NFL these days seems to be more dictated by great offense than great defense, so that's another thing to consider. i mean, i just think offense affects the game more with the way the rules are set up. defense doesn't have that same impact. stuff that happened in '01 gets called for a penalty now. the defense today is easily capable of making it to the SB. i just think it depends on smith's development. i'm not sure boldin is a reliable #1 WR week in and out at this point. smith has to show more than just being a deep threat.
for years, ravens defense was right there but they either turned it over or couldn't convert in the red zone when their defense stepped up. now, it looks like they have that complete team.
Sad day when he leaves. His impact doesnt get enough celebration. Not that Ravens dont have talent on the roster but when Ray Lewis retires that defense wont be the same. It'll be good, not great. Guys like Lewis, Dawkins are just needed to get your defense over the hump. Finally nice to see the offense catching up and not being a burden. One of the best RBs in the game, talented recievers at WR/TE and a good QB. Ig Torrey Smith emerges into something (all the buzz over him) man. I love Ray Lewis, wish Eagles drafted him. So mad they pass up Sapp, Lewis of the world.
