    Default positives about going into Baltimore

    Well guys just a few days away tillkick off to 2009.
    We can say for sure that our defense is playing way better then last year. We have potentially our "franchise" QB starting.We have not allowed a run over 8yds in 4 pre seasons games. We have actually sacked 2-3 times a game (wow).
    As far as offense goes we are in some deep doo doo. Our punt and kick off return teams suck ars again this year and i don't know why since our defense is better????

    Well to top everything of we are undefeated in Baltimaore lifetime..

    Good first post, we like respectful fans of the opposition. Welcome to the Crowd.

    I am also positive that no matter how many believe it there is a chance this team (or any other team for that matter) can beat Baltimore. If the outcome was known ... they would call it Pro Wrestling.

    I am positive that we will put a team on the field and it will consist of a QB, a RB, a WR, a O-Line, and a Defense among others. Also these are ALL NFL caliber individuals with a lot of talent. There are no losers on this team, just sometimes the individuals will have less natural talent or they will have a better or worse game.

    If they are not top quality NFL players then NFL will stand for Not For Long. I believe very firmly that Haley will make sure of it.

    No matter what the outcome of the game .... life will go on and the world will keep turning.

    Last but not least.

    I am positive I am a CHIEFS FAN, and no amount of losing can take that away.
    YOU SAID IT!!!!!!!

    As a Ravens fan, I'll admit that Bowe is better than any of our receivers. As for Larry Johnson, he may be better than any of our guys, but I don't know another team that rotates between their running backs (all of who have unique styles of running) as much as we do - so I'm not sure you have an advantage there.

    One advantage that nobody is talking about is that our best players - especially Ed Reed - are notorious for their film preparation. But considering that we have no video of Cassell with the Chiefs, and that there is even a possibility that one of your others starters will start, it's going to be impossible to scheme in advance. Ed Reed even admitted as much recently saying that they don't have any film to examine so they ar just focusing on being sound defensively.

    The biggest advantage that your team has is that I can already sense a good bit of complacency around Baltimore heading into this game. Even our greatest critics are saying this should be an easy win. With a huge game coming up next week, this is the perfect opportunity to come in and steal one from us.

    I agree with almost every word. We do have a fairly decent RB rotation, LJ being a powerback and Jamaal Charles being a speed freak. Charles just fumbles too much for my taste.

    I'll say this, if Croyle plays, all your secondary will have to do is double cover Dwayne Bowe and get pressure on him. Reed will probably pick Croyle off at least once. If Cassel plays, I'd just put everyone in the box. Cassel hasn't proven that he can hit anyone deep, so take away the checkdowns and short passes, and he'll be in deep trouble.

    If Thigpen plays, just blitz the OLBs and make sure they don't go too far inside, so that Thigpen can't run. You won't have to worry about him throwing at all, since he can't.

    As for the complacency issue, I do agree that even Raven players are getting a little bit ahead of themselves. This Chief defense is MUCH better than last year, the only obvious weakness that I can find is our zone defense in the middle of the field. Our run defense is at least 10x better.

    I should also add though that its not just the Ravens that won't have any tape on what their opponents are going to do. It has seriously gone under the radar and nobody in the media is talking about it, but from preseason indications and from a few practice insights, it appears that the Ravens are switching back to a base 4-3 (like they had in 2006). That is not to say that they will abandon the 3-4 altogether, but there should be a significant shift away from it. This will create all kinds of new looks with Terrell Suggs primarily being a DE. Might be a bit of a shock for the Chiefs if they had been anticipating a defense that looked like last year.
