The ravens offense isn't looking too hot. The Ravens will suffer if they try and move to a passing offense. When the ravens didn't control the clock with the running game, their defense got tired quickly, and we lost.

In order to have any shot at keeping our defense as good as it is, we need to stick to the running game. Unfortunately, we don't have a proven running back. After losing lorenzo neal (to the raiders of all teams), our running game is going to suck.

1. Willis Mcgahee. Injury prone, old, never a great running back.
2. Ray Rice. Seems to be an ok back, but did not do well running up the middle, more of a reggie bush running back, catching the ball in space and speeding down the field. 2 yards a carry, about.
3. Leron McClain. Had a good year last year as our leading rusher, but had to move back to FB after Lorenzo Neal left. Probably won't be getting as many carries, but a decent blocker.

As a ravens fanatic, I can't see any of these guys doing well. Maybe mcgahee, or rice if he has a breakout year.

Our line will be good, but unless mcgahee stays healthy, we will not be beating the steelers.

Our defense is good, I think we will stick to the same crazy formations on defense. Greg Mattison, our new DEF coordinator, has been there for ages as the LB coach. We have a ton of talent on the defensive side, and should be fine, as long as our offense controls the clock.

I expect to have a winning season; I don't know about the wildcard, but we will have at least a 9-7 record.
