I have to say the Steelers kicking the ball after winning the toss was as stupid as the Harbaughs 2 point extravaganza last week.  

Then the Steelers coaches were celebrating on the sideline as they stopped the Ravens and got the ball right where they would have if they received the ball to begin with.

Ugly win. It sounded REALLY loud in the stadium on TV. Lamar's first time in a truly hostile environment and it showed it's effects. Look forward to seeing how he responds next time around.

I'll take a win in Pittsburgh in any shape or form though.

Every team escapes with an ugly win during the season.  To do that in Pittsburgh I will take it. 

One thing is very clear to me.  I watch a lot of football, 5 games a week, and I can say without a doubt that the ravens offensive playcalling is bottom five in the league.  Some of that is due to the limitations of Lamar, and some to a limited stable of WRs, but not all of it.  

No RB screens, no jet sweeps, nothing over the top, no outs, bubble screens, uninspired off tackle runs 12 times a game.  It's scary how bad it is.

It's too bad, because Lamar, based on both his strengths and limitations, I think would really shine with good offensive playcalling, and might often struggle without it.

And we have a new offensive coordinator pretty much every year and this never changes, has to make you think its Harbaugh that is the problem.

I have never been a huge Harbaugh fan.  I think he has gotten better but his coordinators always feel constrained or are bad or are his scapegoats.

Two more turnovers by Jackson. By far his worst game of the season. Miami was an illusion

 

We’ve only played one team and 4 bad ones.

Fortunately an NFL schedule isnt 16 games against SB contenders.  They are all real games, they are all real results.

The Ravens are not a SB contender yet.  I dont think until the first two games of the season anyone expected them to be.  What we should see is some growth, and while the one pick that was his fault was bad, right now I see a lack of growth in the whole team being more of a coaching issue and partly a personnel issue.

    • Just published this look at personal and cultural history for the era 1950-1983, last November. I was born in Baltimore and, though moved around to 45 places in the first 30 years, remained a lifelong Orioles fan. Through the drafts of the memoir I was forced by larger considerations to prune my many precious Orioles memories, but they remain a thread tying me to that ever elusive "Home." I seemed to have a knack for championship seasons: with a two-year stint back in Baltimore in 1965-66, then again in 1969-71, before moving to Oakland for their run in 1973-74 (sorry about that!). A decade writing for the Hangout during the dark years, go figure. But still in the O's corner, rooting for the "kids" as always. I'll say up front I'm an antiwar rebel true to the counterculture thrust of "my generation," so if that doesn't offend you or if you're curious how I got there from the heart of the American suburban "dream," you might be intrigued by this long and winding road toward my vision of "utopia." The real launch comes in a few days, when you can download the ebook for free from Amazon, April 3-4-5. I wanted to let you all know about it so you can order for free, but let me know if you miss the sale and I'll send you a free review copy (yes, hoping you can share a comment or two as a review!).

    • Just to add a few more data points to the discussion... Britton was nearly as good in 2014 as he was in 2016. Again he was used in different situations against KC, with mixed results... ACLS Game 1 away Britton pitches 9th of a 5-5 tie. O'Day enters to finish 9th and loses game in the 10th. Game 2 Away Tied 4-4 in the 8th, Miller faces two and O'Day one. O'Day gives up a single to start the ninth. Britton relieves and gives up two hits, allowing the two winning (losing) runs. Season totals: Britton 37 saves, 1.65 ERA. Miller 1.35 as an Oriole. O'Day 1.70. S**t happens. And as an Oriole fan, more times than is pleasant to remember. But hey, with time on our hands... Here's another from the archives: 1989, Sept. 29 in Toronto. O's need to win the next 2 games. Closer Gregg Olson (27 saves, 1.69) relieves Ballard in bottom of the 8th to protect a 1-0 lead, yields a steal, advance to third, and tying run on wild pitch. Olson stays in for the 9th and 10th. Williamson comes on in the 11th and loses the game. 1973 Bob Reynolds 9 Sv, 1.95, Grant Jackson 9 Sv, 1.90 ACLS game 3 in Oakland. Weaver leaves in Cuellar, despite yielding tying run in 8th, into the 11th when Campeneris homers to win it for the A's. Unused in the bullpen are Reynolds (1.95) and Jackson (1.90). But I guess Weaver was saving them for the next game, when the duo combined for 7.1 innings of 1-run relief in a 5-4 Orioles comeback win. (In between, though, with the score tied 4-4 in the 7th, Weaver risked Eddie Watt for two batters). (BTW I was at that game, and predicted the heroics by Etchebarren and Jackson, though I thought it would be Reggie, LOL).
    • I would just like to go to the store without worrying that everyone there is a potential person who will kill me.  
    • Kinda strange to say one of the least frequent posters on this board overvalues baseball. Did I suggest schools and restaurants are less important than baseball? No, that was your embellishment. We’re going to see tens of thousands of Americans die in the next two months. It’s going to be brutal. When we’re on the other side, the country will need to heal. Baseball has a part to play and in order to do that they need to make preparations. I don’t think it’s out of touch to care about and plan for what happens after the worst is behind us. I don’t expect that anyone is going to be particularly excited about playing games in empty stadiums. But it’s a first step. And it allows the game to be fully ready when medical advances allow the crowds to return. And that goes for the minor leagues too. On the other side of the surge the country will desperately need to get back to work. And that includes professional baseball. And eventually all the jobs it supports. And we’ll need the diversion. It’s a lousy plan, but I think better than the alternative, which is no plan. Just waiting, hoping, and losing time. I’m not surprised that people disagree. Particularly at this point in time. 
    • I’ve read most of the article, and it seems that there’s a desire to contract the minor league teams and remove the total number of players a team has in the system. The team likes it because it’s cheaper, and the players like it because older guys won’t be pressured by up-and-coming prospects, and can last an extra year or two in the majors. That implies overall quality will go down because there just won’t be as many prospects pushing for spots. I dislike all of this.
