Saints vs. Ravens

For the life of me, I can't understand how this thread has not been started yet. The game is at 8 tonight. It airs on the NFL network tomorrow morning at 10.
Thoughts on the game? Things you'll be looking for? I personally want to see what the offensive line is going to do in this game.

RE: Saints vs. Ravens

I think our eyes should be on the O-line and D-line. -Sullivan-

Probably because for most of this week, this site has been a pain in the ass, as far as error messages and typing posts that don't go through.

It's Friday already? Man, some weeks just fly by, don't they?

As far as the game...I'm really hoping Lewis plays and for more than just 4 or 5 carries. The run defense needs a good test.

Ok, it looks like Lewis isn't going to play...

However, the Ravens will play tonight without leading rusher Jamal Lewis, who is sidelined with a bone spur in his left foot.

The Saints have allowed a league-high 354 rushing yards and four touchdowns in two games. Opponents are averaging 6.6 yards a carry.

I'm watching both team's running game and o-line. That's what matters to me. Our o-line v. Ravens' D. Ravens' o-line v. our D.

RE: Re: Saints vs. Ravens

For me it's D-Line and LB's. Does anyone know if Fincher's coming in?

I'm worried about Watson.

My concern is felt all around. With Stichcomb down and the line hoping not to move around much as far as new assignments, this will be key to watch. Defensively, I believe our corners are adequate (collectively). But our defensive line still scares me. The run defense is still suspect and not having Jamal Lewis back there will not validate much unless we still allow major yardage. Bryant Young and Az Hakim are scheduled to play in the opener but I would have liked them to get some reps in a some of these preseason games....lets hope the injury bug does not hit us as I don't think we have had any major issues other than Stitchcomb.

Whoa. And I thought that the defense was looking better. Tells you how low my expectations have gotten. Feels like another loooooooong season.

It's called the Venturi Effect. I read about it in a physics class.

It's a simple premis - halfbacks move through the gap more quickly the more old Rick squeezes the line to stop it.

Motorcycle manufacturers apply it to carburetor design.
