Fan feedback

  Joe Flacco carry the

  Super Bowl? Do the 
  Ravens have the Wildcat figured out? 
  ** What are your thoughts?**

The pick-off artist: Last week Ravens safety Ed Reed snagged two interceptions, the fourth time this season he's picked off opposing quarterbacks multiple times in a single game. He finished the season with a league-best nine interceptions but faces a cautious QB who has only thrown seven interceptions this season, among the fewest in the league.

Wildcat extinction: The Ravens tamed the Wildcat in their Week 7 meeting, holding Ronnie Brown to 27 yards and forcing Chad Pennington to throw for nearly 300 yards. The Dolphins gained big yardage on a couple of Wildcat plays last week, but the league's No. 2 defense will be harder to fool.
