  1. Ryan Grant is next

    I love both of these WR moves. I have watched the Redskins rave over Grant for several years now. He has been stuck down in their depth chart behind flashier guys. Guy is dependable, good hands, good route runner at any spot on the field. He is just what this team needs - a guy who will catch balls. Much better value than the over-priced big name guys who were available and yet still have issues. I like Brown too. Guy can stretch the field and be what Perriman should have been . Still need some more guys. Draft someone good and sign a veteran. I am open to resigning Wallace but would prefer to sign someone else. Too many drops for Wallace.
  2. Amazon Fire TV

    Guys and gals, Long time Big Cable user here. I notice over the past year my family and I have been getting more and more into the Amazon echo system. We love Amazon Prime for streaming music and added Alexa Echo this past year. Lately I've been noticing more and more content on Amazon Prime Video while at the same time Big Cable is either reducing content or starting to charge more for on demand titles. So, I thought I would try out Amazon Fire TV. I just bought the thing yesterday, and am still getting used to it. I have the fastest Big Cable wifi which I plan on keeping, so streaming quality is very good on my old, 2005 model HD tv. My questions are more centered around content. I notice some typical networks, ABC for example, want me to register with my 'tv service provider' before I can view content on the Fire. Others, such as CBS, have a dedicated subscription. Having to register with my tv provider kinds of defeats the purpose of having the Fire, does it not? Am I missing something here? What if I wanted to watch the Oscars on ABC last night? Or more horrific, how can I ensure I am able to watch the Super Bowl if I ditch Big Cable and just have Amazon Fire TV? I am starting to think I will be unable to ditch cable tv entirely but perhaps can reduce my bill my getting rid of DVR service and keeping the most basic plan possible. I saw the other thread from two years ago on cord cutting. For me, I don't mind giving up MASN if I can save some dough. NFL and Ravens games are a must to keep however. I saw an Amazon Fire TV app for Sunday Ticket but it said something about blackouts for in-market games. I am in Northern VA, so I am not sure if that includes Ravens as well as Redskins. Anyone have any positive or negative thoughts on the subject? Much appreciated, Evan
  3. Ravens already filling out receiving corps, sign MVP

    It's going to really suck watching the Redskins nab Calvin Ridley with the 13th pick. There is no way they pass on him given their new QB situation and lack of receivers. The next best receiver in the draft is Sutton who many say would be a reach at pick 16. The Ravens don't reach.
  4. Don Martindale Promoted to Defensive Coordinator

    Perhaps Pagano wanted to take some time off or perhaps he wanted 'assistant head coach' role or some other nonsense. I'd be interested in what happened there after it was reported he was #1 target. I wasn't high on Austen given his track record in Detroit. I don't like Wink's one year in Denver as DC either but they didn't have much talent that year. Looks like Harbaugh is going to sink or swim with current coaching staff minus Pees. Hope it works out and Martindale is the next great defensive minded coach to come out of Baltimore. As long as he doesn't coach like Pees he should be alright.
  5. Make Harbaugh Resign and Allow Him To Go To Detroit

    Why do you want Savage over DeCosta? Because he did so well while he was with the Browns? I'm all for cleaning house, but you can't expect anyone to come in here and be saddled with Joe and our crappy list of guys he has to throw the ball to. Like it or not we have to ride out the Harbaugh/Flacco era and let it end on it's own, two years max, maybe one if they go 4-12 next year.
  6. Pagano is the Ravens 1st choice for DC per Mike Preston

    Great news. In all honesty, if they can get this done quickly combined with moving up seven spots in the draft, I am glad they choked away the playoffs. I am not too worried about DC job. Lots of good candidates with connections to Ravens. I am intrigued by Fangio as well.
  7. 2017 Week 17: Ravens vs Bungles

    Pagano was let go today. He is the one I would like to see.
  8. 2017 Week 17: Ravens vs Bungles

    Unreal. Every year it's the same thing..a tipped ball, an outstretched arm, a final drive in the final minute. If only they didn't start the game like poo. If only they didn't blow the Bears game. Or how about if they just showed up in London? A Harbaugh led team will never go 13-3 and win the division. How will the front office spin it this time?
  9. 2017 Week 17: Ravens vs Bungles

    How fitting. Unreal.
  10. 2017 Week 17: Ravens vs Bungles

    January Joe has come five hour early! What a turn around. Now can they hold?
  11. 2017 Week 17: Ravens vs Bungles

    So lucky to only be down by 7 at the half. At least they get the ball first and have momentum going into the second half. New ballgame, perhaps.
  12. 2017 Week 17: Ravens vs Bungles

    Great coverage by Humphrey so far. That's the only bright spot. Collins too I guess. Other than that it is a worst case scenario. Ravens are dropping the ball left and right. Both Tennessee and Buffalo have early leads. At least this could be the last game we have to watch these putrid receivers.
  13. Rich Dauer has a very close call.

    Glad to see he beat the odds and made a full recovery. One of my favorite all time O's. https://www.yahoo.com/gma/houston-astros-first-coach-makes-miraculous-post-op-142205270--abc-news-health.html
  14. Star Wars: Episode VIII

    I didn't like this film. It felt like one of the prequels rather than a worthy Star Wars movie. I thought The Force Awakens, although too close in story to A New Hope, was awesome. I left the theater for that film eagering wanting to find out more of the new characters introduced. i thought Rogue One was really good too which kept my apetite alive while awaiting this latest film. The Last Jedi, however, was all buildup with no delivery. Almost all of the scenes from the various trailer releases were a let down. The new generation characters didn't develop from the previous film. I was okay with how Luke was portrayed. Don't want to spoil anything so I'll stop here. I will say the opening battle sequence was awesome and worthy of the Star Wars name. Up until the first half of the movie I thought it was leading somewhere, but then it all seemed to fall apart . With the exception of Luke's scenes I found myself wishing the movie would just end. It was much too long. I am shocked at how disappointed I am in this film. At this point I don't really care about the next one.
  15. 2017 Week 16: Ravens vs Indy

    Finally got a key defensive stop when it mattered most. Not really encouraged by this one. Pretty much got carved up by this no name quartback and an ancient Frank Gore. Whew. Interesting listening the the NFL network post game show. LT says Ravens are dangerous but can't beat Pittsburgh in playoffs. What? Didn't these two teams just play a 1 point shootout in Pittsburgh like two weeks ago? Other than that craziness LT's comments were spot on. Deon on the other hand just crushed the Ravens. Says they have no shot against Kansas City or Jax. Thye better win next week.
