After The Bye

Recommended Posts

The Ravens get a little lucky with their "second half schedule."  Instead of Desean Watson they get Savage, instead of Aaron Rodgers they get Brett Hundley,  instead of Luck they get Brissett.  They also have a game against Cleveland and a game against Cincinnati.

If you put me to guessing where they end up I am guessing it's somewhere around 8-8, forever on the treadmill of mediocrity.

Yea I see us as 7-9 or 8-8.  Bisciotti  gives us a speech in January or February about how the Ravens had the odds stacked against them with all the injuries and stuff and he's confident that with no drastic changes to the coaching staff and with better luck next year we will magically see big improvement.

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.

We are better off to lose out and at 4-12 get our future QB.

But 4-12 probably won't let us get the top top guys right?   There are currently 11 teams with a record worse than us.  It's not even a lock that we'd get a top 5 pick.   So we'd probably have to trade up (sacrificing future picks) to get in front of NYG, SF, CLE etc?

And we can do that even if we finish 8-8.

All of this is just irrelevant theorycrafting though because Harbaugh knows his reputation and potential job security are at risk so they are going to fight hard and with FIVE of the remaining SEVEN games against pretty poor teams (I'm including GB here, which is maybe debateable I guess)....there is still a slim chance of squeaking in as a WC team.

Define "do anything."

We could maybe win a game against Jacksonville/TEN or KC.....but I doubt we'd do much after that.  But you never really know..........

Very possible.  I would be rooting for a matchup with the AFC South winner for sure, heh.  I would not pick us against KC but they have looked more vulnerable lately.

I'm surprised, no stunned, we are favored. I would bet the farm, or at least the barn, we get smoked.

That's the Vegas line.  People always forget, in no way is Vegas trying to simply accurately predict which team wins.  They are trying to encourage equal betting on both teams.  So it's just as much of an indicator of public sentiment as it is a prediction of who will win.

538 on the other hand says the Packers have a 67% chance of winning and give them a 5 pt advantage, which is more of a straight game prediction.

KC would beat this team by 30...

On tap this week GB with a possible third string QB and third string RB.

Are you sure?    ;)

Yea I have no clue how to explain the 2017 Kansas City Chiefs season.

I don't know what happened in KC but I will stand behind the statement.  That game was a case of KC having been overrated and the Giants being underrated.  The giants hate that coach but there is still a lot of talent there.

As for the ravens, on to the next superior team that isnt because of injuries.  I predict at least 2 more picks.  Thry might just covet Hopkins with 4 people.

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.
