Today's featured comment comes from Darnell, who is enjoying the statistical turnaround that the Ravens have made in one year:
Darnell's take: Important stats this years as opposed to those in 2007. The Ravens are scoring more and the defense is once again stifling opponents. In 2007, the Ravens' opponents through 12 games averaged 24 points per game. The Ravens' average score was 17 PPG. In 2008 opponenets are averaging 16 PPG, while the Ravens are scoring 24 PPG. That is a big turnaround. Need I say more?
There is but one area that I believe needs to improve...special teams play. Yamon Figurs is hesitant and it seems a little too timid to run back kicks and punts. Our coverage on punts and kicks needs to be tightened up. Coach, get on top of these areas. Keep up the good work.
Pete's take: You're right on, and don't think John Harbaugh -- the former special teams coach -- isn't pushing hard to correct the situation.
