    Ground attack, defense, and field goals worked out real well for Baltimore. Let's see what the 49ers do.

    In fairness, Baltimore should have won the game. Ball hit the reciever right in the hands and he dropped it. That should have been the game right there.

    They were in position to win the game with that ground attack and defense. Brown makes that catch, no question.

    Shouldn't have came down to 15 seconds in the 4th quarter. Patriots defense was awful all game, just begging the Ravens to score. The Ravens 20 points against the Patriots reminded me of the Steelers offense.

    Exactly. The WR's won't be forgotten in the new offense.
    I seem to remember 82 an 88 having a lot of success in the old days. I would love to see me some of that.

    No more 3rd and 1 or 3rd and 2 empty backfield "shotgun" sets.

    Thank Christ!
    Well said, balance is absolutely paramount to the future success of this team. I would love to see this team have 150 yds on the ground every week and 200 yds passing by Roethlisberger again. That means you're keeping the other teams offense off the field, setting yourself up in manageable 3rd downs.

    I hope they go that route and logic says they will but you have to wonder even still.

    Not possible to go back to the 'old way' without significant improvement to the O-line...I don't care who the new coach is...we have got to fix the disaster "protecting" Ben

    Offensive line, defensive line and running back. That's in the direction of old school. Although, improvements in the OL will improve the running game no matter who the back is.

    And at that point, might as well be pass-happy.
