Well, the Ravens have exactly one of their top 3 cornerbacks left from the beginning of the season. Jimmy Smith is officially out for this game and probably at least 4 weeks total with a sports hernia.

Very vulnerable in secondary. RT @Ravens: CB Jimmy Smith has had groin surgery. He's expected to be back before the end of the season.

Can we spread this team out and force them into nickle and dime situations with Byron? Their one starting CB left is the one who has quite a few interceptions, but gets picked on a lot.

Come on Gary Coleman, next man up!

Absolutely we should spread em out and let Lefty throw the rock around the yard.

That is great news....I think we will score some points on these guys....we just need our defense to shut them down. We absolutely need to hit Flacco a few times. He totally wilts when he gets decked and starts hearing footsteps.

The Ravens won't be able to stack the box as much. They are down to their 5th CB being their nickel guy. Run out of spread formations to keep them from stacking the box and mash it in their faces.

Unfortunately our QB who could really exploit this won't be playing. But then we also heard how the Oakland secondary was patchwork and being held together with wire and duct tape. How'd that work out for us?

I'm doing all the hoping and praying as much as anyone, but in a discussion board I'm trying not to be delude myself into believeing about what is probably not reality. I will be thrilled if Lefty looks like the second coming of Dan Marino.

Didn't we hang 30+ on them? Should of been more if not for some drops? We put up 30 this game we win.

It worked out pretty well for us. Ben was 36 of 49 for 384 yards and 4 touchdowns. We had our way with that secondary.

Other than Brown's terrible fumble in the 4th Q, the defense and special teams let us down that day.

Well, Leftwich certainly has Marino's mobility down pat. ;)

Pretty much like the Art Rooney and Bill Mazeroski statues! Although the Maz statue does convey at least the appearance of movement.;)

Serious question: Do you think they do "no Huddle" with Lefty? Might really surprise the Ravens!
