    As much as I hate the Ravens, they played Fisherball better than Fisher in 2000. Come playoff time, their defense is what dominated the playoffs.

    Here's a breakdown of the two teams on a per game average:

    2000 Ravens
    Defense vs. the run - 60 yards per game
    Defense vs. the pass - 198 yards per game

    Rushing from RBs
    122 yards per game - .5 TDs per game

    QB Production
    200 yards per game - 1.25 TDs per game

    2007 Titans
    Defense vs. the run - 66 yards per game
    Defense vs. the pass - 205 yards per game

    Rushing from RBs
    122 yards per game - 1 TD per game

    QB Production
    181 yards per game - .625 TDs per game

    Difference
    Run D - Ravens by 6 yards
    Pass D - Ravens by 7 yards
    Rush yards - Identical but Titans have double the TD production
    QB yards - Ravens by around 20 yards and they had double the passing TD production

    Draw your own conclusions.

    Great stats..
    Defense wins games.

    I no longer blame Schwartz. Well, for the meanwhile atleast.

    Interesting to see. They have us slightly but I think we haven't even seen our best. The Houston game could have been complete domination but we gave up alot of yards in the 4th. Same as TB on their last drive.

    OK, now compare the Patriots, Colts, and Steelers to the other teams back in 2000...

    I think the Ravens D and our D are somewhat comparable, but we aren't going to win unless VY can start playing decent football.

    Starkiller is right... The 2000 Ravens didn't have to deal with the Patriot and Colt offenses... The Titans were the best team in the NFL that year and their offense was pedestrian.

    The Ravens also feasted off some of the worst offenses ever that year. We aren't play horrible offenses...atleast not to the kind that the ravens got to play that year.

    I think that's a given. No one is saying the Titans are Super Bowl bound based on eight games but if they can limit the turnovers and get more production from Young, I like the thought of a strong defensive team who can run the football in January.

    Both the Ravens and Titans played the Bengals and Browns twice who were horrible. The Titans also got the Cowboys when they were baaaaaaaad.

    We see it every year - teams that are exciting in September often struggle in January. We obviously aren't in the class of the Colts and Pats (using the term "class" loosely on that last one), but we've shown we can go toe-to-toe with Indy every time. That's a dangerous team in the playoffs. I still wouldn't put any bets on us going deep in the playoffs this year, but we finally appear to have the foundation of a team that will be in the elite for the next several years. If we continue to see improvement from VY and we can keep the core of the defense together I like the chances of a SB in the next 5-6 years.
