I think these changes were planned before COVID ever happened. They hired the new broadcasters in February 2020 and announced then that Hunter wouldn’t be broadcasting games. At that point, the handwriting was on the wall.
It's announcing the 2021 Orioles broadcasting team. If you can't see this GIF; it's Geoff Arnold, Kevin Brown, Scott Garceau, Brett Hollander, Rob Long, Ben McDonald, Melanie Newman and Jim Palmer calling the games on television and radio this upcoming season.
I'd much rather go the route you suggest then giving Lamar a six year contract or more. We really don't know if the
Ravens limited passing game is because the coaching staff think Lamar is that limited as a passer, or just that they prefer to run so heavy.
What we do know is that if there are any elements, Lamar is not going to be effective if you can just put nine guys in a box.
I like Lamar, and still think he can win a Super Bowl, but if he doesn't grow as a passer over the next few years, don't know if he's your guy in year three and beyond.
