    Obviously with the style of offense Caldwell unleashed with Flacco last season Tomlin probably told him that style wasn't going to work in Matlock's plan for 2012.

    I bet Tomlin and Ben were seething watching the Ravens win the Super Bowl and wondering what might have been.

    Wrong!! Go read the Ravens board to see what really happened. They fired their OC because he refused to use Ray Rice, a RB, in critical points during the game and had Flacco throw the ball. Flacco could not carry that team. Caldwell went in there and said they were getting the ball in Ray Rice's hands one way or another. He did that for a few games and when DCs keyed on that it opened up Boldin and Smith.

    Try and get the facts right.

    People have to respect the Raven run game which makes it easier for Flacco to do his thing. Their oline is twice ours. Given our oline and run game, we you cannot have consistent success throwing deep.

    Never stopped Arians.

    The ONLY year Arians run game was bad was in 2008, when injuries killed it.

    They only won the SB that year.

    Keep defending Lee Trevino, guys like you will keep him employed.

    Yes, they won the SB that year due to a fantastic defense headed up by one of the greatest Defensive Coordinators of all time -- Dick LeBeau!!!!

    ... and before you bring up the fact that they blew a 4th quarter lead in the SB realize that they never would have sniffed that game if it wasn't for that defense.

    Actually, no. The defense blew 4th quarter leads all year. Sometimes Ben saved them, sometimes he didn't.

    That defense, as has been the case since 2007, gets "fat" when the OFFENSE controls the clock.

    The 4th quarter defense has been a joke since 2007.

    If LeBeau was in his 40's instead of 70's he would have been fired in 2009.

    But Rooney won't dare risk pissing off the geezers who love Coach Grandpa.

    Jarvis Jones rocks CJ with a bone jarring hit.

    The next series Jones is on the bench. The Titans go right down the field and score.

    Damn that Bruce Arians!

    Don't forget that the Ravens built their O Line and run game with all those high draft choices they got from finishing in the bottom of the league for years. Oh....wait....no...no...my mistake. That's the excuse people have been making about why the Steelers didn't draft better....because they have been finishing with too good of a record to get good draft choices.
    Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity

    Yup... that is one of the most common excuses. There are several others as well.
