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.

    • Definitely more then the flu. The damage to the lungs is alarming. Seems to act  like more then just a virus in the 5% who get it real bad.  https://www.npr.org/2020/04/01/825499422/ventilators-can-save-lives-of-some-covid-19-patients-but-theyre-no-panacea   From my friend in his 50's. He is not even in the hospital but at home.  Im willing to look into sharing my immunity (once I survive). I im 9 days into exposure. Thank god lungs are clear. Breathing is strong. Dealing with 20% normal energy. No appetite. Lost 9 pounds so far.  Fever ranging from 101 - 103. Chills. Diarrhea.  Fun. Fun. Fun.  
    • Thanks.    These are fun observations to have at a time when there are no current games to evaluate.    
    • Not sure what schools have to do with baseball.  Schools have closed because it is hard to get the schoolyear finished before the start of the next one.  Also that is public, not privately owned like MLB.  I think baseball could do July or earlier if necessary.  Seems MLB doesn't want to start unless fans can attend.  NBA and NHL, I think were looking at the CBA(Chinese basketball league) for starting up.  Sending players to neutral sites, keeping players and coaches under quarantine, and playing in empty stadiums.  I think baseball could do that in Arizona or Florida or both.  I kind of agree with Mark Cuban that games would help people in the crisis, but would need to be done safely.  WWE seems to be handling it well so far.  UFC is also going to try with 249 and their last Fight Night in Brazil. 
    • 50-80% is quite a wide array statistically which means its still not clear.  if its closer to 80% you are more correct, if its 50%, we are choosing to kill people being short because 1/2 people on ventilators survive.
    • TRAITOR!!!!!  I can remember Snyder owning the Orioles, no doubt. Funny you mention that Rotisserie book. I bought that too and created leagues based off their categories for years. It wasn't until about 1989 that I ran a league in my unit that I changed some of the categories to make it more "realistic." By 1993, I had developed a league that included waivers, contracts (After the draft, you had to sign a guy to a 1, 2 or 3 year contract that went up 10% each year and were guaranteed against your salary cap) and included stats like SB-CS, SV-BS and I believe we used EBHs as a category to help those guys who did more than hit homers and collect RBIs.
    • Yeah, I don't recommend it either!    
    • No, I'm going to search the waiver wire and put guys like Givens, Cobb and Bleier on the trading block and hoping to get decent offers. I've already executed a waiver claim on a pitcher and will announce that today before tonights game.
