Thats not good, just as Boller was getting in stride. Bad news for Ravens D holders too.

Uh... Boller is a quarterback, not a cornerback. It's bad news for the offense.

Yikes so of course the debate begins

Does Lewis production go up because Baltimore will have to lean even heavier on the run?

Or does it go down because now defenses will key completely on him?

Regardless, I'd say it's time to package heap and get him moved in a trade.

Uh... Bulger was 13 for 26 for 110 yards for no td's and 2 int's. Faulk had 48 yards on 20 carries. The whole team had 121 TOTAL offense. All their points came off Baltimore turnovers in their own territory. Their defense was fine. Their offense is what is bad. I dont understand how you can say that last night was a perfect example of that. Of what? All the defense did was hold Bulger and Faulk to 121 TOTAL yards. I think your wrong. The defense will step it up even more now. It's not like they haven't had to do it before.

Heap was the #1 TE in fantasy football with Redman at the helm last year (he started 1/2 the games I believe). Let's give him a week to prepare before we bury him (not like he's replacing Joe Montana)

aero, Homie's point is that Baltimore's piss poor offensive play (7 turnovers) put the defense in bad positions and in the second half Baltimore's defense was on the field a long time. They were well rested because the offense controlled to ball in the first half but they can't withstand being put in that kind of a situation for an entire game. And yes, the Rams only had 100 some yards offensively but the score board shows 33 points. Result, no points for Ravens defense (or maybe negative if your scoring system penalizes defenses for so many points allowed) in those fantasy schemes that grant points to the defense for shutouts and low points allowed.
