    Ravens and playoff contenders

    Is there a scenario where we play KC in the first round? That would be ideal. I just want to avoid Jacksonville. I doubt we even put up 10 points in that match up. I feel at least capable against any other opponent.

    2017 Week 15: Ravens @ Browns

    With Gordon and Coleman back this team isn't a complete roll over. Our offense can't hide in a shell like it sometimes does on the road. We will need to put up 20 points.

    Pees to retire at seasons end

    I think Pees has taken some undeserved heat from fans. He hasn't always been great, but I think he has been more than ok.

    2017 Week 14: Ravens @ Steelers

    We almost always split, and the first game usually isn't any indication of the second game.

    After The Bye

    If Will Fuller is out they should be doubling up Hopkins all day. Our run D should limit Lamar Miller enough, and there isn't anyone else besides Hopkins that can/should beat us. From a pure entertainment standpoint, it's really a shame Watson (and Fuller) is out because this would be a really fun match up to watch for MNF.

    After The Bye

    Is anyone really confident we would do anything in the playoffs even if we get there? I would rather be there than not of course, but I just don't have the level of confidence I usually have with this team.
  7. If the Astros make the trade for Britton do they still make the trade for Verlander? I'm not so sure. I think it's reasonable to think that they are better off with Verlander than Britton.

    Drafting offensive players for the last decade

    I don't think we are bailing on Flacco anytime soon. I wouldn't be against drafting a QB in the 3-5 range as a multi year/long term project though. If things look promising we can go with that QB in 2020/21 where the construction of Flacco's contract begins to be manageable to get out of. Flacco would only be 8 million in dead cap after the 2019/20 season, and we are completely free of it after the 2020/21 season. Perhaps someone like Josh Allen of Wyoming will slide and give us the opportunity to let him sit for a couple years (as he should based on his performance this year).
  9. At some point we have to avoid these 3-40 or 4-50 deals we hand out to aging players that come back to bite us. We are already stuck with Davis for half a decade and Trumbo for 2 years.

    Is Joe Flacco?

    I really don't know how to defend him anymore. Great quarterbacks will make plays, regardless of their line or WR or coordinators. This guy just doesn't make plays. I can't think of many QB with his amount of experience who looks as bad as he does when a play breaks down. If he doesn't get the ball out immediately after dropping back, he is a fish out of water. He has no pocket presence what's so eveInsert other media r.

    No help for the OL?

    PFF has us as the 4th best offensive line thus far. The most encouraging thing about it is how well Jensen has played, and how well this bodes for the future with Yanda and other returning next year.

    2017 Week 3: Ravens vs. Jaguars (in London)

    I can't be the only one that notice the pass rush really fell off in the second half. I assume it's related to Brandon Williams being injured.

    2017 Week 2: Ravens vs. Browns

    Langford was terrible in Chicago. Dixon is the only real talent we have at RB. West and Buck Allen on a good team are backups.

    2017 Week 2: Ravens vs. Browns

    I look at like this. Woodhead was probably going to miss time this season eventually. Might as well get it out the way.
