"Our first team meeting that we had, I saw it was going to be totally different," Daniel Graham said. "McDaniels is a player's coach, but he demands a lot from all his players...It's not miserable to come into work, and that's a big thing. He has a positive attitude, and we do too."

BS - Ravens Insider
"The Ravens tried out kickers Mike Nugent and Connor Barth but didn't sign either one. It's like a precaution if Steve Hauschka can't kick Sunday. He is probable with a right ankle injury."

NFP - Sunday at the Post - Mike Lombardi
"Who guards Brandon Marshall is a concern, but who can tackle him is a bigger concern. Domonique Foxworth will struggle to cover him, which he knows from practicing against Marshall." I'd say ignore the kicker comment, as I'm pretty sure he's referring to the Ravens...

ESPN Insider - FBO: Crunching the Week 8 numbers
"The Ravens should be able to wear down the Broncos' run defense with constant, steady gains. The Ravens rank No. 1 in our Adjusted Line Yards metric and third in overall rush offense DVOA. Although the Broncos rank first in preventing long runs over 10 yards, they are 10th in Adjusted Line Yards and 20th in stuffing opposing runners at the line. Of particular note: The Broncos rank dead last in ALY against runs behind the left tackle. Baltimore's defense ranks 29th in the league on third down with 1-3 yards to go, but second in the league on third down with 4 or more yards to go. "
