Lets face it, the Baltimore Ravens defense is in need of a youth movement, the aging Ravens defense will face a young fast RGIII Sunday in a game the Redskins could steal away from Baltimore if RGIII decides to light it up with his speed. The Ravens have to cover against the rush with RGIII, if he starts to scramble with the speed he brings to the field he will be able to burn the aging Ravens defense. Baltimore needs a guy or 2 that can hang in there and cover Griffin III if he starts taking off. The problem th Ravens have going into this game is age. The youth movement RGIII is bringing into this game will expose just how old the Ravens defense is. Baltimore is 9-3 on the season and they are looking to win the AFC North. The team just lost their last game against the Steelers who sit just 2 games back in the divisional race. If the Ravens can’t stop RGIII and his Washington Redskins they will be in trouble. Baltimore hasn’t played their best football as of late and the Redskins defense has turned it up a bit lately. The Ravens offense will certainly face pressure when they square off against the Redskins. If Joe Flacco can’t keep his Ravens offense in the game and RGIII gets his chances the Ravens defense is going to be worn out. This kid brings another dimension to the game the Ravens haven’t seen this season. RGIII has the ability to tear it up offensively and the Ravens are in for a war this Sunday. The only way I can see the Ravens being able to compete in this game is to keep Robert Griffin III off the field, that is easier said than done with this Redskins defense. This game is going to be interesting to say the least…..

  • It's not what the defense has to do in part this is really up to this coaching staff to step up with a game plan that keeps Robert on the side lines, but this game will also expose the Ravens coaching staffs inabilities more so than age, just look at the Steelers game last week,the Ravens has one of the top running backs in the NFL yet his use was just 12 carries the entire game against a beat up stealers D, thats one more reason to be concerned about this coaching staff more so than the age of the players, And at the same time you worry about the age because this coaching staffs game plan and calling ability don't play to it's aging D's need to stay on the side line as long as possiable therefore exposing all the flaws, Hey Charm City! you think the Texans put the whupping on you? get ready for John and Mike (the other Mike) to have a tense moment after this game or will John and Cam hug and kiss this Mike? 35 to 20 Skins, All we have to do is wait until 2013 this game don't count right John? Cam? Come On Man!
