No harm, no foul, I totally get it. For the very same reasons I’m a big Eagles fan this week. 

The Eagles are super banged up! Top 2 WR out now their starting RB. Going be hard for them to score I think.

This is gonna be another epic game between these two QBs. I don’t think we’ll be looking at a 42-36 score haha But it’s gonna be a good one and crucial in AFC seeding. 


This should be a highly entertaining game. This is a tough game for us with Houston coming off the bye. We have a brutal schedule.

Yeah we do as well. First you guys, then Colts on a short week, then New England...things are heating up down the stretch. This is where teams show who they really are.

It’s a long season. Obviously I love the way the Ravens are playing , but we have more tough games ahead. At LA Rams, SF at home. 
 

To be totally honest , I have never seen an offense like this in the Ravens era. We’ve been almost exclusively a defensive oriented franchise. I have to go back to the Johnny Unitas/ Bert Jones years of the Baltimore Colts for anything somewhat comparable. Even watching that , I’ve never seen anything like I’ve seen with Lamar. I’m stunned myself .

Another Patriots break 

The Pats D is legit, the Ravens were the only team really move the ball consistently on them.   Be interesting see if anyone can figure a way to slow down their College style O. (Which isn’t an insult just what it is a triple option, RPO, all things you see in college not the pros)

Less than 300 yards passing.. I’m still more afraid of his legs than his arm.. :) I see a rematch of n the Razor for the AFC Championship.

He’s not into stats , or passing yards. He does what it takes to win.  The thing you are missing is the Ravens defense is now coming around. Seven sacks today, and let up only seven points to a good Houston team.

He did look a bit slow today. They had most of their offensive lineman back, and we haven’t had many sacks except for today. One of our top defensive lineman, Michael Pierce was out today, but Decosta picked up two DT’s off the scrap heap, just like he did getting inside linebackers Bynes and Fort. The amazing thing is the defense has gotten better ! I think the key trade was getting Marcus Peters for a 5th round pick , and underperforming linebacker Kenny Young. This gives the Ravens three top press cornerbacks Humpheys , Peters, and Smith. These are top coverage guys allowing Martindale to blitz more. This defensive rebuild on the fly is almost as impressive as what Lamar has done. 
I’m not worried about playing at New England in the AFC Championship. We are 2-2 up there, and could have been 4-0 in the playoffs. The bottom line is this is a young team, and they need to be concerned about stacking wins, winning the division, and just taking it game by game. This is a team just trying to get better each week.

Wasn’t meant as an insult saying I expect a rematch at the Razor, or that I thought it was a sure win.  It was meant to say I don’t see any team stopping the other till then is all. (Mind you that can change one injury to Jackson or Brady and well it’s over for either club)

 

the Ravens future looks bright I feel this is the Pats last chance at glory with Brady at the helm, I have a feeling Stidham takes over next year.  Pats draft O lineman and well if he stinks and the Pats are pitifully bad.. we are in the hunt for the Clemson QB the next draft.    Sounds just like a BB plan lol

    • I think Jacoby is gonna surprise a lot of people. Even if it isn't with the Colts.
    • Getting Linderbaum in the 5th would be an absolute steal. Plays Center at Iowa and is one of the top rated if not the top rated college OL in the nation this year.
    • Brissett 2019 QBR: 52.1   Rivers 2020 QBR: 62.5 (Lamar Jackson is 61.8)   Brissett 2019 YPA: 6.6 (29th in league)   Rivers 2020 YPA: 7.6 (11th in league)   Brissett 2019 completion %: 60.9   Rivers 2020 completion %: 67.3   You may have a preference for Jacoby for whatever reason, but he is a worse QB than Rivers (by a Grand Canyon-sized margin) in every measurable capacity (except maybe rushing yards, but who cares).    
    • Yes, I mostly agree here.    I think Rivers will play EVERY week.   And you have to respect a guy whose playing with pain like this.    I'm only saying his QUALITY of play may be uneven based on his pain tolerance.   That's all I'm trying to say.  
    • Don't mean to be argumentative,  but.....   The chances of 5 QB's going in the top-10 I think are Slim and None, and Slim has already left town.    I believe the last time 5 QB's went in the top-10 is....    Never.     Off the top of my head MAYBE the famous '83 draft?     And 6 in the top 20?    Again,  highly not likely.        And some of these guys, while getting a lot of attention, the scouts are going to pick them apart in ways that fans don't.   At least one of these guys will likely fall out of the first round.    Maybe more than one.       And remember,  of the five quarterbacks taken just a few years ago in 2018,  the best one came....  with the 32nd pick, Lamar Jackson.    The famous top-4 of Mayfield, Darnold, Rosen and Allen is not looking so great.    Allen appears to be getting the most love of these four.   People appear to be 50/50 on Mayfield.   Darnold has been mishandled and looks questionable at best.   And Rosen appears to be a bust.     So, maybe 2 out of the top 4 appear to be worth the pick.    And then there's Jackson who has exceeded expectations of many.      I'm just saying predicting QB's, especially this early,  is an invitation for a misevaluation.
