And, why did Trent Dilfer when a Superbowl with one stud TE and not a ton of O power beyond that? Because the Ray Lewis led D was soul crushing!

Look, I'm not predicting a Playoff birth this year, HOWEVER, nothing is impossible. And, if our D and specifically DL improve like it appears it will, anything is possible. Our front 7 is set and if we get enough production out of our secondary and get a QB who manages the game and occasionally makes a clutch play...next year could be very VERY interesting.

Raise a glass to having a light absorbing, soul crushing, Chthulu-style defense!!!

I understand what you're getting at, especially as a Ravens fan myself, but what you're saying doesn't apply to College football.

That 2000 Ravens squad had literally the GREATEST Defense in the history of the NFL, they didn't allow a 100yd rusher for damn near the whole season...

Their philosophy was simple, our Offense is so bad that we just won't let the other score, all we need is 10 points & we win.

They had a stout run Defense & front 7 with Sam Adams, Tony Siragusa, Rob Burnett, Jamie Shaper, Peter Boulware & Ray Lewis.
Plus, Rod Woodson on the back end with Chris McCalister & Duane Starks... They shut down every damn team they played & just completely brutalized you for 60 minutes of football.

On Offense, all they needed was a serviceable QB because Tony Banks was so damn terrible, all Dilfer had to do was not turn the ball over.
We had Shannon Sharpe coming from Denver, Jemaine Lewis who was a great Return specialist, Brandon Stokely who was the original White slot WR before Welker lol & rookie Jamal Lewis pounding the rock 25-30 times a game... Plus, one of the 3 best OT's in NFL history in Jonathan Ogden.

It it was a different game back then, all the rules weren't slanted in the Offenses favor & were allowed to be way more physical than they are now.

That formula doesn't work in College because it's a completely different game.

The key in college is all about the OL, QB, RB & DL... You wanna make the playoffs or win a chip, you better have a line with some 4-star Tackles on it, a high caliber QB, a great RB/(Run game in general) & a terrific DL to cause immense pressure against other teams good QB's.

Basically, you just need a team with 3-4 loaded recruiting classes of high caliber athletes... We're not there yet, but we're getting close.

We have a great Defense under El Jefe, we have one of the best DL's in the nation & imo a top 3 LB Corp...
Our Secondary isn't their yet, but should be by 2018...

For Offense, I think Perry will be a great QB, I think our run game is strong enough and will get stronger by 2018, I think we have a great WR corp now & all we need is more reinforcements on the OL and we'll be in position to take the ACC... Just not right now.

This comment makes you a genius. It's literally as simple as that.
