It seems with the wonder of DVR/Tivo even casual fans are now rewatching and studying film like they're coaches. This allows for much more informed opinions than, say, watching the game once while drinking and then stomping all over the jump to conclusions mat. I find this "film study" particularly amusing when some of our sane commenters do it and then tell us what they're seeing after rewatching.
In the comments to this post you'll find a lot of that. I'll repost two of the more in depth ones so you can read for yourself. The takeaways from our commenters that seemed most interesting?
- Carson looks much better despite a couple shitty decisions
- Zim actually schemed somewhat poorly, which resulted in LBs consistently matching up with WES WELKAH, THE FACKIN HERO TO BAWSTON!!! - a rare occurence and something not likely to happen every week
- Roland & Livings are not the answer - hopefully this season at some point Mathis and Smith come in to replace them
In general, we have always matched up well with the Ravens and I see no reason why that should change Sunday. I'm actually more perturbed Atlanta couldn't keep the Steelers down sans Roetherwlihaslgijaer. I kinda liked Atlanta before that, now I hope their season goes down in flames and the Saints roll them twice.
Some analysis below the fold:
