Seneca Wallace Hopes Unknown Helps Against Ravens

Seneca Wallace is hoping the threat of the unknown will help the Browns against the Ravens this week. It appears more and more likely that Wallace will get his second straight start, and neither he, nor the Ravens defense, has much experience against the other.

This is my first time playing against them, I know they are a very physical defense. They do a lot on third down to try and create a lot of turnovers and disguise some things. That’s the only thing I can say about them. Everybody knows they are a good defense, a great defense.

Ravens LB Ray Lewis knows that Wallace brings a different set of skills at quarterback:

The difference [between Delhomme and Wallace] is Seneca can really move with his legs," Lewis said. "He’s looked at as a quarterback, but he’s more of an athlete really playing quarterback.

“Pocket passers are what they are,” Lewis continued. “If you let them sit in the pocket, they can pick you apart. A quarterback that runs with the ball . . . they can hurt you on big third downs when your back is turned. They make a big first down and that keeps drives going, and that kills you.”

Wallace is going to need to do whatever he can to stay out of the grasp of Lewis and an angry Ravens defense after last week’s loss.
