Conducting a Symphony

I love blitzing. I love the disruption, the violence, the split second read and reactions. Blitzing is beautiful. When done correctly it's a work of art.

Tonight the Ravens created a symphony.




9 sacks. At times I thought I was seeing an illusion. It was almost as if the Ravens were lining up behind the offensive line. My heart went out to Alex Smith as he got bulldozed over and over again by the likes of Terrell Suggs and Cory Redding (what?). 9 sacks. I imagine Alex Smith currently is wondering how his offensive line which has protected him so well throughout this season allowed a linebacker, defensive tackle, defensive end, cornerback AND a safety set up camp in his pocket. A pocket which mind you was smaller than the ones the emo kids have on their skinny jeans nowadays.

9 sacks. Terrell Suggs remembered the wild frenzy he was in to start the season against Pittsburgh racking up 3 by himself. Cory Redding exploded for 2.5. Ngata had 2. Zibby slipped in for one. Heck Lardarius Webb who if he isn't voted into the Pro Bowl this year you'll know its fixed racked up half of one with Pollard bring up the end with one of his one. This wasn't Organized Chaos. This was the proverbial taking of Alex Smith's cookies, standing over his broken body and telling him chocolate chip was better.

Ladies and Gents...for the year we have 38 sacks. Drink that in for a moment. Then account for the fact that we lead the NFL in that category. Not the Steelers. Not the Texans. Not the godforsaken Cowboys or Chargers.

We are spoiled for having such a group of violent heat seekers on our team. I'm never one to say this is our year, we're going all the way or such and such. But even I can see...when the Ravens are on, they're on.

And if the defense keeps this up, theres not a team in the league that can beat us, Packers be damned.

Stage is set for the final section of the season. Rock on Ravens.
