JH, LW, and TP have been pretty quiet so far, and if you want to win MVP, these are the kind of big games you have to make a big play in.
To his credit, Harrison was being doubled a lot
from what I saw. They pretty much had to because every time they didn't he was able to get some
heat on Flacco would usually equated to him speed rushing around the OT while behind "held" off with the tackles left arm. They just don't call that. Some of the Ravens fans around me even commented on it, surprised it wasn't called. There was another play right in front of us where the Balty RT started almost a full second early on a play and they didn't throw the laundry.
Woodley was kinda quiet, but he always seemed to be around the ball. IMO, TP was doing more coverage and run support than blitzing. It seemed like DL had him up around the line, bouncing around, but he'd drop off into a cover 2 type shell or a medium zone coverage. In several instances, Balty called a play that completely took him out of the play (i.e. a quick hook route to the right and he was off in zone coverage on the left).
There was one guy that the Ravens didn't seem to have an answer for and that was Timmons. I think his speed really caught them by surprise. Plus, he had that one shot on Mason (??) in the 4th when he was back in coverage that brought out some "oooo's and aaahhhh's." It didn't hurt that it was right in front of the Steeler bench and hence, right in front of us. Considering what it sounded like, I was a little surprised that Mason got up as quickly as he did.
#91 also seemed to be causing the Ravens offense regular fits too.
I also think DL has been having everyone drop back into coverage more, especially against the young QBs. Making Flacco throw through windows that are 1/5 of the size he was used to seeing at Delaware is a better strategy than blitzing him and letting him use his athletic ability to make plays downfield in man coverage. He burned us a couple time in the first matchup that way.
