The Ravens plan of attack is pretty much one and the same.
Give the ball to Ray Rice. If that fails, throw it to Ray Rice. If that fails, throw to the tight ends. If that's not enough, lose.
Okay, it's not that bad, but it almost is.
Look at Seattle's defense and you'll spot two things. The potential to stop any RB and Marcus Trufant, their best CB, on IR for the season.
Solution? Wide receivers. But that's not what happened.
Boldin, Smith and Williams had a combined total of just 18 of Flacco's 53 targets for a measly five completions.
Yes, Seattle's secondary was on fire. Yes, Ed Dickson did a fantastic job today, yet we're not celebrating a Ravens victory over Seattle.
If Baltimore wants to move forward in this league, they need to show that they've got an offense with options, not just an offense composed of Rice, Dickson and Pitta. And they need to be able to use it.
