PostSubject: Flacco's had trouble beating Bengals' Cover-2 defense   Thu Nov 17, 2011 11:45 pm

By Edward Lee, The Baltimore Sun

Prior to this season, the prevailing thought was that the Pittsburgh Steelers were the mountain that Joe Flacco had yet to conquer.

That has obviously changed after the quarterback led the Ravens to their first regular-season sweep of the Steelers since 2006. But maybe the focus should have been on a different AFC North rival.

In six career meetings against the Cincinnati Bengals — the Ravens' opponent this Sunday — Flacco has endured some of the poorest outings in his career. Perhaps not coincidentally, the Ravens are 1-3 in their last four contests with the Bengals.

"They are a physical football team," Flacco acknowledged. "Like I said, they have played well. Their offensive line, their defensive line, they are two pretty good groups. They'll fight 60 minutes, and they fight to the whistle hard on each play."

One factor in Flacco's struggles against Cincinnati has been the defense's use of the Cover-2.

I said it in another thread, but it bears repeating...

clowns set the standard at beating the Steelers just once in a season
bungals set the standard at beating the Steelers, once would do, but twice is sweet
ratbirds set the standard at beating the Steelers, and winning the AFC North

STEELERS set the standard at WINNING MORE SUPER BOWLS!

This will be a telling game for the Ratbitches.... either they will bounce back against a division opponent after last weeks embarrassment or they will lose and continue to show why they can't and shouldn't be taken seriously.

Go Bungles.


If the Ravens lose, maybe Harbitch should look into getting some of this for the team:

I wonder how A Dub really feels about the Ravens.

The offense has struggled all year against 4-3 defenses, which the Bengals also run and have given Flacco trouble his whole career. I just hope I don't have to punch things again at the end of this game.

If you have to, invite Truck over and punch him. You owe him for the attempted home-cooked homicide anyway.

Don't kill him though! He amuses much like a monkey fucking a football.
