Saw this on easports and wanted to pass it along. Its from the cover athlete hopefuls section where Adrian Peterson and Ed reed are 2 of the 9.

"Sure, Ray Lewis is the undisputed team captain, but ask any QB in the NFL (see Chad Pennington) who they fear the most on the Ravens #1-rated defense, and they'll tell you it's Ed Reed."


Just wannna get your thoughts on them saying that the ravens defense was #1. Even though they were #2.

Someone needs to tell them to check the overall end of year ratings for defense, and THEN make an informed statement.

Thats bullshit when everyone in the country recognizes the steelers D as the steel curtain and look at the ravens and think ed reed and ray lewis. What had ray lewis done recently except be involved in murder cases?

I don't believe that was until near the end of the season thought. I thought we lead 1st in everything until almost the end of the season....I thought..

Id say mid-through the season. Vikings was pretty damn dominating against the run aswell. We did lead all 3 at one point, but i can't really recall when it changed.

Considering our schedule VS the Vikings you can't even put their run defense close to ours. When someone says our D is #1 and 2 in everything it shouldn't be forgotten that we played the toughest schedule statistically based on the prior years records. Only reason our schedule ended up not being the toughest was because of 4 games against the Bengals and Browns.

we were #1 against the run until the last game when we had the #2 seed for the playoffs and allowed Jemal Lewis to gain enough yards to let Minnesota move up to #1.
We also allowed least yards per rushing attempt 3.29 yds/carry

STEEL CURTAIN #1 PERIOD !!!
ratbirds blow AND swlallow!!!

The Ratbirds need to win something first, otherwise they sound just like Tim Lumber, full of hot air and clueless about reality.

We were also #1 in total yards allowed plus passing and total points. We were only number two in the run by like 36 total yards or something really close to that.
