Another bad call by Harbaugh bites them in the butt.  I’ll never understand his insistence to keep going for it in 4th down, especially when they’re near mid-field.

Really .... what about 330+ yards from Mahomes.

If we limit Robinson and Kelce, there’s no way he gets that kind of yardage. Unfortunately, we’re not doing that, especially Kelce across in the middle.

I expected Mahomes to pick apart this awful secondary so it's not a surprise. But ever since Harbaugh went for two and then went for it on 4th on the 50 yard line the team has looked flat.

Lots of things to pick apart, but this looks a lot more like a Harbaugh football team than the first two weeks. Harbaugh's decision have been a total momentum killer.

Well the only thing I was wrong about was that I mistakenly thought the Ravens would play a close game. The Chiefs have outcoached and outplayed the Ravens all day. While Harbaugh's ridiculous decision to go for two was a momentum killer, at this point it's just men against the boys.

The Chiefs do look like they got a great chance to go to the Super Bowl with this team. The Ravens, eh, their offense suddenly looks like crap and their secondary is absolute trash with Humphreys out now as well.

Think people can calm down on the Lamar is one of the best QBs in the league talk. Watching Mahomes against Jackson today you can see a very, very wide margin between the two.

What a joke. We get a pass interference that wipes out an interception when it's not even on the receiver that the pick was in front of.

The Ravens defense is so ridiculously undisciplined. Typical Harbaugh team.

It's too early in the season for me to be too worried about losing to the best team in the league.

There are obviously things to work on.  I think chief among those is Harbaugh learning how to win a big game.  The only thing that is working for this team is running the ball, and that's how this team needs to beat an offense like the chiefs.  They literally needed to run the ball 50 times in this game.

That said, Lamars long throws have been off the mark today.

Jefferson has been bad in coverage.

Thomas has missed some assignments. 

The line pass blocking has been terrible.

But this offense is young, this defense is learning to live without last years field general, and they will improve.

Harbaugh going full 13-year old Madden player and goes for two when the extra point would have put them within 10. I'm at a lost for words on how stupid that is.

That may be the dumbest Harbaugh decision I've ever seen.  Now you HAVE to get 2 points if you score a TD.

He had to forget that the Chiefs missed there extra point. There literally is no sane explanation why he would go for two there. I'm at a loss how any coach would think going for two there was a good idea.

    • o   Astros Players say that Yankees Fans Crossed a Line with Zack Greinke Heckling (By Deesha Thosar) https://www.nydailynews.com/sports/baseball/yankees/ny-zack-greinke-roberto-osuna-fans-hecking-houston-astros-alcs-game-4-20191018-kv6qb6s32ngzdmg6tyubdhsd34-story.html   o
    • Encarnacion definitely looks the part, you see him on a good day and I wouldn't blame anyone thinking he's a top 10 prospect in the system. There are a bunch of above average tools and good bat speed. It's the skills part of baseball that is holding him back. His footwork can get wonky at 3B and is the cause of most of his errors, but it is improved and I think he'll be an average glove there eventually. The big issue is a poor approach and terrible pitch recognition. He's a total guess hitter, he can hit spin if he's sitting on it, but it's a total guess style, he doesn't adjust or waste pitches and sometimes he gets caught in between which is even worse. I'm concerned that those are things that don't usually improve out of nowhere. But the ceiling is still average to above average regular, but it's a really low probability outcome and the floor is not making it out of AA.  Carmona looked good at 2B the few games I watched and he still has quick hands and good bat speed, but the swing mechanics are still a mess. He's rarely loaded and ready to attack on time which leads to weak contact and rolling over on pitches frequently. I'm not sure why he played so sparingly, so it's possible an injury hindered his performance. The ceiling isn't quite as high as Encarnacion, but his issues are more fixable IMO.  These guys have pretty serious flaws and neither fits the definition of hitterish, so they'll be a good test of the Orioles new player development machine, it'd be a good sign if they could get one of these two straightened out. 
    • Akin, Hays, and Harvey on OD roster.  Mountcastle after the service clock issues.  Tate as an up/down guy till he pitches well enough to stick. I think that’s it in terms of “prospects”.  Diaz might get a Sept callup but most likely the Mountcastle treatment.  If Akin didn’t get a call up last year then I don’t see any of the SP prospects getting called up either.   No point to rush to start service clocks in a 100 loss season.  
    • @Luke-OH or anyone else, what’s your take on these two guys, 3B Encarnacion(21) .648 OPS in Delmarva https://www.baseball-reference.com/register/player.fcgi?id=encarn000jea SS Jean Carmona(19) .561 OPS in Aberdeen in only 25 games.  https://www.baseball-reference.com/register/player.fcgi?id=carmon000jea  
    • Zero. Waiver claims if we do. We’re staring at, Means, Bundy, Cobb, Wojo, Akin for next year. With Brooks and Ynoa as depth in the MLB bullpen. We’ll likely see a 14 man pitching staff(if allowed). Also keep in mind that players must be in the minors for 15 days and not 10 once they get optioned. Plus position players can only pitch if their team is losing or winning by 6+ runs.  With all that being said, I think we’re going to see us be forced to carry arms in the pen that can go multiple IP. Basically SP. Especially considering we do not want to touch the prospects in AAA next year at all. See Akin this year.  It would be a little crazy for us to not start the year with Ynoa, Brooks, and two others like them in the bullpen. 
    • The big takeaway for me from this thread is that our window to realistically compete doesn’t start till 2023. We have to pay Davis in 20-22. Cobb in 20-21.  We might give it hell in 2022 with the guys in AA-AAA now, plus AR, Hall, and Rodriguez, but we’re In no position to even sign a FA until then.  I don’t know what type of deals Elias will get offered, but the smart things to do would be to Mancini, Bundy, and Givens. Villar is a given. Then get top draft picks from losing in 20-22.  After the 2022 draft we should be taking the field with a cheap, talented roster, with a farm system ready to sustain a run. 
    • So if we go through the player mentioned here are the position that are expect to be effected:    (BOLD means eligible for the Rule 5 draft.)  Starters - (6) (2) Akin, Kremer, Lowther, Baumann. Wells , Zimmerman  Relievers - (6)  (3)  Harvey, Alvarado, Muckerhim, Tate, Kline, Klimek(Tony has mentioned) Catcher - (1) Cumberland Outfielders - (5) (3)Hays, Mountcastle, Diaz, Mullins, McKenna Infielders - Bannon, McCoy  That would be 20 players that played mostly or completely in the minors that would see some action in the majors this year.. And (9) players that need to be protected from the Rule 5 draft.  Can the O's protect them all?  Should they? That's a lot of players.
