Ingram released by Ravens


Recommended Posts

Made me think if someone like the Bills might sign him since they had a recent injury to one of their RBs, to help give them an extra push if they make it to the SB

Why was he released now and their season just ended? 

A bonus if he's on roster on January 20?..... to possibly hook up with a team still playing and possibly go to Super Bowl

 

It was to save cap space

We need receivers !!!

 

With all due respect, you need Lamar to improve his reads. It can't be that Marquise Brown, Willie Snead AND Miles Boykin are all bums that cannot be taught to do a few things. Lamar still zeroes in on Mark Andrews too much. I understand he trusts him but if he spread it around by looking at more than 2 reads to throw, he will be a better QB, IMO. They need to work on him reading Ds and throwing with anticipation.

 

You can have all the WRs you want but if your QB runs to run instead of runs to throw, the end product is what you see against good Ds in the playoffs.

I disagree the Ravens best WR Brown is not a number 1 he's a slot WR. The fact that they signed Dez Bryant shows how bad their WR room is and from at least me watching Lamar he spends a lot of time scrambling around waiting for an open WR. A great example was in the playoffs when he scrambled around was about to run for the first but then reestablished his feet and threw a pass to his RB who dropped it. 

 

I think if they give him a WR, like how the Bills got Diggs for Allen you will see a big improvement in the passing game.

It doesn't matter if the QB does not throw in anticipation. Lamar has not learnt to throw his WRs open, he shows flashes but does not do so consistently.  Go talk to Ravens fans and they will tell you Lamar left a lot of throws on the field with either lack of anticipation or mechanical consistency. I saw that several times just in 1 game on MNF vs the Browns. 

 

A guy opposite Marquise Brown for the outside consistently, yes, I agree they need one, they may go after someone like Allen Robinson like you inferred Diggs for Allen, and Hopkins for Murray. But his mechanics and anticipation still have to improve, I stand by that 100%.

I think I’ve said previously Lamar has to improve his passing game. But honestly, you need to look historically at who the Ravens have drafted at wide receiver, and who they passed up on. It ain’t pretty

The only Bal guys I've ever liked at TE and WR were Steve Smith and Todd Heap.

However, you do have to think about the OCs they have hired and the style of offenses they have run. They have always been a run first, set up play action kind of team on offense with defense and ST at the top of their calling cards. However, in the modern NFL, hard to go farther without a very good passing game.

Andrews is pretty good , Brown can be a good # 2, but beyond that it’s been failure at getting a # 1 receiver, other than picking up an older receiver at the end of their careers like Derrick Mason or Steve Smith.

    • They are likely kicking the can down the road, and the negative consequence is higher cap numbers for those players in future seasons, and greater cap penalties to move on from those players in future seasons. The thing is there's no much else they can do. they're set to be nearly $70m over the cap in 2021, and other than these restructures, they would not be able to get under the cap by the start of the new league year. They would have to cut or trade all of their highly paid players.
    • I feel the hype about Carl Lawson is from a combination of people who haven't really watched him play, and who overrate "pressures" by assuming that all pressures are equally disruptive.    Lawson is a tough, physical, high effort guy, he tackles well, plays the run reasonably well, he has decent size, and he would fit nicely as a DE for us. He's not a dynamic pass rusher, and I don't think he ever would be a dynamic pass rusher.   He has some quickness and speed, good speed to power, but he's not the kind of explosive pass rusher that blows up the other team's blocking schemes. He has below average bend and closing speed, and he takes a lot of steps, which explains his tragically poor three cone. He also has below average length, and gets neutralized by good blockers. This is all obvious on his tape, it was obvious on his college tape, and it's why he went in the 4th round.   TomDiggs mentioned Lawson's knockdowns/hits and hurries. PFF recorded six edge rushers with at least QB 15 hits; despite the fact that Lawson had 24 hits, he only had five sacks, which is the least sacks among those six players. In fact, there were ten edges with fewer than 15 QB hits, but with at least ten sacks. PFF has 24 edges with at least 30 pressures; Lawson had 34 hurries, but was tied for fifth fewest sacks among those 24 players. In fact, there were five edges with fewer hurries than Lawson, but at least ten sacks.   My point is that QB hits and pressures only show a player that manages to get near the QB at some point during the play. Without context, they don't necessarily show a player that makes a definite impact on the play. That's why I value PFF's pass rush productivity (PRP) stat, because sacks are weighted more heavily than hits and pressures. And that makes sense because a sack ends the play. A QB can be pressured, even hit, and still make a positive play. Recognizing a sack as nearly always a negative play for the offense, PRP shows the difference between a guy who gets near the QB, and a pass rusher who makes plays for the defense. Sometimes the overlap is not as great as you might think.   Lawson's PRP was 8.5, tied for #18, well separated from guys like Bosa (10.6) and Watt (9.7). In general, a player with a bunch of total pressures, but low sack numbers, like Lawson, is a guy who gets a bunch of pass rush snaps but doesn't have the length, bend and closing speed to get home often enough. This is why guys like Trey Hendrickson and Leonard Floyd can have a third fewer total pressures, but twice as many sacks as Lawson (Hendrickson also had 80 fewer pass rush snaps). And Lawson gets a ton of pass rush snaps because he plays for a bad team with no other good edge rushers, so as long as he's healthy he'll have a lot of pressures, but he'll probably never be a big sack guy.   He's Trey Flowers. Better 40, same agility, not as long, mid level edge rusher who is well rounded and a good guy to have on your team, but not a dominant pass rusher. I can't see offering him $14m/year to not sack the QB. Any projection that has him as a big time sack guy is unrealistic, IMO.
    • It's nice to see Pittman, Smith and Okereke get some love.
    • Did I misread your post?   Did you not say you were in favor of moving Nelson to LT?   That if we’re going to pay him top dollar, it would be better to do it with him as our LT instead of at LG?    That wasn’t you?    I’m sorry, I thought that’s what I responded to.... 
    • With me, road whites are off-limits.  As to the blue tops, as much as i do dig the color rush blues, I’m an old-school-uni guy, and would lean to white pants.   I’m in Penn State country, and there are some similarities i guess.   I do think improvements can be made in the striping.  Minimal enough cahange to keep purists happy, but could “update the uni.  Perhaps 3 stripes down the leg and middle of helmet.  Middle one thicker than sides.  Not crazy wide.... tasteful like the stripes on a shelby. The middle stripe could be horseshoes similar to the way seattle uses imagry.  Maybe a large horseshoe on each shoulder that circles down around the number.  Minimal...... but updated..... without losing the “brand.”   Remember that outdated font that was recently retired?  A small “refresh” might be nice.   I’d like to see a “ghosted” image of like padding texture or like metalplate image (barely noticeable) at shoulder pads, knee and thigh pads.  Like a 3d effect.   I remember oregon once had ghosted wings on the shoulders that were cool, bit not “too much.”
