Ravens extend Martindale

Recommended Posts

Good for him.  Things looked real bad early on in 2019 but improved for sure when we turned over a lot of personnel.

I'm not unhappy with this news, but I would prefer a headline saying we are making Greg Roman the highest paid OC for many years.

I read an article saying he was also extended

I see that as well but weird that there aren't any details on the extension yet for the public.

Apparently Colorado University has an interest. So maybe that’s why

But why? He's showed you two years in a row that he has no in-game adjustments whatsoever. Has Red Thor (Hayden Hurst) who can catch and runs pretty fast, yet doesn't find a way to get him involved in the gameplan. That's the last Ravens coach I'd want to get an multiple year extension unless he vastly improves his gameplans. Sure it looks crazy that I'm saying this amist an historic offensive season, but let's not forget it completely crumbles under adversity. Showed up pretty well in our two losses. (And playoff game of 2018 when he was "Run coordinator"). With that said though, I'm ecstatic about the Wink extension. Well deserved with make-shift pass rushers and linebackers. Wasn't looking too good with Jefferson back there and Chuck came in and helped save the season.

He transformed the Ravens offense in one off-season from mediocre to the best one ever seen in franchise history.   He turned it into an offense that scored more points than ANY OTHER NFL TEAM.

That's all.

You can't hyper focus in on the one playoff loss while simultaneously ignoring the 12 games we won in a row (against some pretty decent teams).

That's my point, it wasn't just the playoff loss. It was other games as I stated in the post. Guess we'll see what he's really made of since I'm sure we'll come back down to earth this year. But I'm all for another historical run, but I wouldn't bet on it. Greg Roman for me leaves a lot to be desired as I believe 90% of his success was because Lamar is an out of this world player.

I find it a bit...….....curious that you seem more willing to blame Greg Roman for the woes of the offense for the 2 losses in our 14-2 season than you are willing to give him credit for the UNPRECEDENTED success of our offense in the 14 wins.   The list of coaches who win 16 games per season is rather short.   But I dunno if we are just talking around each other now.

I am not saying he is perfect.  I certainly think he abandoned the run too quickly in the Titans game.  Hopefully he and Harbaugh both learned some things there.  And Lamar too.

    • You all guys DON'T know the life I'm living! Not one bit what any of you all would guess.. Think lowest common denominator.  
    • I actually use 3 videos players. One for .webm, and one for those nasty Ruskie .mkv files. ALL the rest I use KMP player. Plays everything, and I just discovered today it plays my DVDs too! So woo, and might I add HOO!
    • Watching DVDs still. Just discovered today that my main video player will also play all my DVDs. Much more convenient to watch them on my computer than on the TV...
    • 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!). You can also check out my other writings at http://NowickGray.com 
    • 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.
