I've got to think that it comes down to a lack of reps with the first team for Kilgore. When Snyder is in there, you've got a guy that's smart enough to play center taking a look at the D and helping Davis understand his responsibilities on every play. Rachal can't do that, and I doubt Kilgore would be able to without the proper amount of reps.
Not sure what the practice schedule is like with the long practice week coming up, but I wouldn't be surprised to see Kilgore getting a few more reps with Snyder banged up.
Yes he was definitely thoroughly out coached. That's why the game was tied going to the 4th. Not to mention, barely 2 days of practice and traveling 3 time zones, which hadn't been done since 1975 had nothing to do with anything.
Pagano's defense=frequent blitzes, 9 sacks, and intense pressure in the quarterbacks face all the time.
Fangio's defense=Watch Flacco sit back in the pocket for 5 or 6 seconds, take his time picking the defense apart and moving the ball up the field, zero sacks for the day and basically zero blitzes utilized.
Call it whatever you want, Pagano had a much better gameplan than Fangio did.
They got pressure with their 3-4 man fronts. They hardly blitzes at all.
Roman was out-coached. A point to made, our D was on the field a long time [sorry I don't have exact figures]. Our Oline was b***h-slapped all game, our WR couldn't get seperation and their D was ready for everything we did. The Ginn TD was the only time we got to them and Chilio fixed that.
I believe we were robbed of all chance to win this game. I think the short week and traveling had a lot to do with the outcome. Not to mention the horrific officiating. I mean I seen someone grab alex by the face mask and pull him down and someone slipped their hand into the back of his helmet and pulled him down (don't know if that's legal or not). Not to mention the rediculous high low bs and the interception was the worst of all that should have been our ball. Because of the bad play by the o line and vanilla defense we should have lost by 3 tonight. It's not the loss the angers me it's the situation that created a game that was asking to much of our players to win. Like I said if the officials get those calls correct then we have a more interesting close game. I want to see the Ravens next year on either field and I want a different crew calling it and a full week to prepare. Here's to hoping we get a Harbowl rematch.

Fangio? The niners gave up 16 points and less than 300 yards. What are you smoking? please share!
This game was about the Oline. Davis and Rachal got blown up all night. Davis may have been a little gimpy from last game, but there were a couple plays were he didn't even slow down the blitzers. Rachal has been talked about enough already, that guy is garbage.
Im going to agree that the defense played bad tonight, but only based on the standards they've set this season.
They only allowed 16 points, correct, and thats awesome. But they also couldnt do much to the Ravens offense. Barely touched Flacco all night, were letting a lot of people run free and they were allowing the Ravens to make key third down conversions. The times we needed them to make plays, they didn't. And that's why I think they played bad. Offense played worse of course, but the defense couldn't get the stops when we absolutely needed them to.
