I go backwards dot -- I'm hoping he is Tim Ryan calls a game every week for the NFL on fox and it was San Francisco -- -- and the defense may not be the biggest name but maybe different. Ray McDonald. Now people do not know how good Ray McDonald is as a player there's a guy that is slowly please strong. -- at the point of attack outstanding in run defense. And that's to me this game is about your report from him as we know how Baltimore boys. We know -- San Francisco plays. Ray McDonald I promise -- would say Wednesday Monday was in the weight room with 700 pounds he along with Justin Smith at some of these other guys are slowly but we strong. And when you think a Joseph Flacco and where he wants to throw for -- he's a mid line throw which means he's always been right in the middle of the offense. 567 yards behind behind the senate you've got to have interior push it and we're all talking -- Smith were all talk and Justin Smith -- now's not a sacked -- five games that's obvious those guys have got to step their game up. The ray McDonald's and have some one on one opportunities you've got to get -- office spot Ray McDonald can be. So that's a little bit about the strength physically talk about a little bit here between the ears when it comes to mental. We make such a big deal about the whole experience and age and sisco being the young against Baltimore of course having that veteran presence. We make too much of a big deal about this or it comes sunny and this game on this stage is it really big -- Well I think it is a big deal I think there's more pressure on Joseph Flacco in this one I really do army calling captain -- -- -- and we proceeded on Sunday it I don't really matters there. But when you look at Joseph and you look at all the pressure has been on him get it is championship games and not get over the top and not make -- sadistic games. And everybody's Julio Jones there's only one more time Joseph Flacco is a terrific terrific quarterback I don't operate you know well. But he's got pressure in this game because of its history now he's. Think this is playoff starts and thirteen for him how the government had ten starts so you kind of compare and contrast that and all the experience -- to Flacco in the Baltimore Ravens would Joe's got a lot of pressure on him internal pressure to win this and we help. -- would that help me wrap my head around that and have you yet about why this quarterback is picked him prodded so much in five years that he has been in the playoffs every single year -- and an AFC championship game why doesn't get them. Well I I think a big part of it is just his mannerisms it's just the wade looks kinda how he handles pressure in the -- shots I begin -- Manning was what is. Really kind of hit with the same thing and until Eli when not to suffer when against the Patriots he didn't get a -- that's gonna continue the -- -- I. Think those who have just kind of how they act. For some reason people don't. Plus. When he gets his -- we'll be rewarded not just momentarily that's happened anyway but now stands. That European pro. While we go back to experience that we go back to the age I feel like that last fact there's even argument I'll hold off on his defense is is this year we really say is this the window that -- honesty. Our window is shutting him and that's obvious their best player not anymore but historically Ray Lewis it's over these east's. It's rare that read you know with the with the future holds for him. This isn't a defense and I talked to Ray Lewis that I had a nice conversation with a nice but -- guys I tonight I remember the whole thing player. That nobody can block. And I remember many games Ravens in Michigan hockey -- me you know meaning he was unstoppable sideline to sideline. And I looked right after my sometimes he doesn't play anymore but what I do see is -- when your backs against the wall down in the red zone most. Part of the field for defense of player. The football intelligence Sosa the concepts understanding what's coming predicting what's coming. And when there's no room for error because you in any doesn't have the whole field salute to cover down in the red zone but. When there's no room for error brain powers suits and mats were ready to me since he's come back is made is big statement for all the putts but they are old. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --
