  1. Random Ravens Thoughts: New Forum Edition

    https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2019/11/18/lamar-jackson-ravens-nfl-week-11-fmia-peter-king/ Great read both on draft day 2018 and the process that got us to Lamar, as well as a good quote from him on how he reflects on the Chargers game: One of the stranger footnotes about that draft will always be that we picked Hayden Hurst first and risked losing out on Lamar. I fully believe that DeCosta and Ozzie really did love Lamar (and it's also no secret Bisciott was crazy about him), and I guess this is just one of those situations where they really did read the room on Lamar enough to believe nobody else was going to knock down the door and grab him before we got him at 32. Thank God they turned out to be right but we probably flew closer to the sun on that one than we needed considering the likelihood that Hurst was gonna be there at 32 had we just switched those things around.
  2. It's just all love with this team, I really don't feel like I've ever felt this way watching a Ravens team before. I don't know that there's a team out there having more fun than we are right now.

    This is just sad to watch

  5. Your 2019 MVP: Russell Wilson

    Bruh they might have been quiet today but you can bet the group of dudes who talk about Lamar like he stole their girlfriend will be back when they see the slightest opening and they will more than balance out us giddy Ravens fans.
  6. BIG BOY NO LITTLE BOY Honestly Ingram is up there with Steve Smith in terms of most incredibly 'Raven DNA' free agent signings we've ever made. Love this dude.
  7. Antonio Callaway released

    If you're too undisciplined for the Freddie Kitchens Browns I don't see how you have much of a future in the league tbh.

    As a Niners fan what are your feelings on Dwelley?
  9. NFL arranges workout for QB Colin Kaepernick

    My prediction: He's going to sign with the Pats. They're one of the only teams that can handle and effectively shut out a media circus. The road to the AFC title for them most likely goes through beating some combination of Lamar, DeShaun, and Mahomes. Belichek is going to bring Kap in so that he can spend the next month and a half prepping effectively not just for the games he has left against Houston and KC but also for the playoffs where he needs to have his defense locked in against zone reads and scramble drills. The Ravens game just upped the urgency for them on that front so I would not be surprised if they initiated some conversations with the league around Kap afterwards that resulted in this workout coming together. Kap is an A+ scout team QB for that role, not to mention he's also an upgrade over Stidham if something happens to Brady.

    Obviously a lot to go to get there but re: a potential playoff rematch with the Pats, might be worth paying a little extra attention to the Pats/Eagles game this weekend. I would expect the Eagles to run lots of 2 TE sets with Ertz and Goedert and try and and mimic things we were able to do against them in playing horizontally rather than vertically. Lamar and Wentz are very different players so it's not like it's a perfect comparison, but it's a chance for us to preview some of the adjustments they might make if we see them again.

    You're not benching Chubb. I'd go Chubb/Coleman.
  12. Start/Sit and Weekly Lineup Help

    0.5 ppr league - I'm a Kittle owner, prepping for the likely scenario that he sits out Sunday. I'm currently holding Olsen (vs. ATL) as a backup option, but I'm trying to decide whether I should drop Olsen and pick up Kittle's backup Ross Dwilley instead. Olsen seems like the better option overall, but he plays at 1pm which could be a factor if Kittle turns out to be a true game time decision for his 4pm game. And the Cardinals suck against TE's and he got 7 targets last week, so Dwilley himself doesn't seem like a terrible play, especially if Sanders is out. Should I drop Olsen/pick up Dwilley?
  13. Put 50 bucks on Baker to win MVP at 25-1 odds while I was in Vegas in June. Felt like it was sort of an emotional hedge and thought it would cloud things up to put money on my own team. Now absolutely kicking myself over not putting that money into Lamar at ~100-1.
  14. I really really bought into the Baker Mayfield hype.
