I agree totally! The Ravens set the blue-print and AZ followed that. Steelers will do the same thing and their defense is alot better than the Ravens in my opinion. Every team knows we can run the ball, every team also knows we can pass when Alex has time. Pressure Alex and he gets rattled, misses throws or gets sacked.
I just don't understand why they didn't roll him out more. Maybe some draw runs....thats how you play against a good pass rush. We got bullied yesterday and everyone knows how to bully us now. Does not look good for us down the road unless the coaching staff can make some changes. After that Ravens game we lost something, some confidence maybe mojo. We need to find it and get that back.
