From what you have seen from the first two games of the 2013 season what are your overall feeling/thoughts on this the Ravens? How do they compare to the Ravens team that won the Super Bowl last season.

"That is quite the question there, one that I really cannot answer until we all see what the Ravens can do in the playoffs. However, what I’ve seen in the past two games is not up to the standards of the defending Super Bowl champs. The aerial attack between Joe Flacco and Torrey Smith is still there, but not to the same magnitude as last year. Flacco has yet to resolve the issue of forcing too many deep balls and not going for the simple, most effective pass. On the defensive side, you can tell they are definitely missing the presence of Ray Lewis and Ed Reed."
