  1. Ridley landed in the perfect situation on a roster, when he can use the space created from both backs and Julio Jones. The things that made him drop are still there, 24/25 years old, smaller than some would like, etc. He looked good one week and I expect him to build on that, but so far I don't mind us passing on him.

    You have to stop relying on those damn statistics from PFF and the like. Our oline was not good last season. When Flacco had time, it was because we blocked with 7-8 players and had 1 receiver in route and a RB/TE outlet. The run blocking improved, but the group couldn't pass protect to save its life.
  3. Ravens sign Hroniss Grasu

    I liked him as a draft prospect. Then I saw how he was pushed around with the Bears. He is a center who has to rely on a specific system, and I don't think he fit with what we are doing atm. If he is going to start, I think we will make some changes to how we block.

    I don't get it. You simply prefer the olines we have put on the field the last couple of years to "not overpaying". That is the same philosophy that makes a team draft early round wide receivers so Luck has someone to throw to, while doing nothing to solidify the oline. Oh, but they were BPA. We talk about building oline chemistry, we are not talking about building dline chemistry. We are constantly rotating dlines, we are not rotating olines. I did a rough calculation on Brandon Williams snaps compared to his contract. it is something like 10,5 mill a year, divided by 560 snaps (thats 35 snaps a game for 16 games). Which end up 18.750 per snap. If we do the same calculation on Rick Wagner, we end up paying hi 8.500 per snap. Osemele is at 10.500 per snap and jensen is 7.500 per snap. Ofc there are some games where BW has more snaps and olines have fewer, but I think it shows a pretty clear picture.

    I can somewhat get behind paying the best of two players. If Brandon Williams was graded A and Wagner a B, I can understand it from a personel point of view. However, when a team is constantly paying everyone besides 1 guy on oline, we get the oline shuffle which has hindered us the last couple of years. A oline shuffle hinders the running game as well as the passing game. It is also the complete opposite of protecting the investment made in the quarterback. Luck, Wilson are the best examples of quarterbacks who can win a super bowl, but hasn't been close several years because of their olines. Now, when the Ravens doesn't find the money to pay Osemele, Wagner, Jensen, they are forcing that oline shuffle. They might have a better player in one guy, but they are sacrificing the oline as a unit in the process. Brandon Williams plays what, half of the snaps on defense? Break the salary down per snaps, and I would guess either of the beforementioned olines salary would be quite similar.

    Untill I am proven wrong, I will bang the drum for keeping the best olines we produce. They are the ones who sees the most snaps and can be the sole reason the run and passing game works.
  7. GDT Week 3: Baltimore Ravens vs Denver Broncos

    It was an 80 yard drive or something. And the drives after that they still struggled. Somewhere in the middle of the 2. quarter they found themselves.
  8. GDT Week 3: Baltimore Ravens vs Denver Broncos

    Well, defense really turned it around after another horrendous start. Happy to see that. It would have been nice to see the offense play better in the 4.th quarter, but it also adds to the scoreline, that we should have had at least another 7 points
  9. GDT Week 3: Baltimore Ravens vs Denver Broncos

    These refs are going their way to give the Broncos a win.
  10. GDT Week 3: Baltimore Ravens vs Denver Broncos

    We can argue, that he shouldn't touch Keenum there, but the penalty should never have been called. That was just a bad call by the referee.
  11. GDT Week 3: Baltimore Ravens vs Denver Broncos

    It was on Keenum, but he gave up his back. That shouldn't be called
  12. GDT Week 3: Baltimore Ravens vs Denver Broncos

    Its coming back, because refs are idiots.
  13. GDT Week 3: Baltimore Ravens vs Denver Broncos

    They have to stop the Broncos now.
  14. GDT Week 3: Baltimore Ravens vs Denver Broncos

    We have to keep rolling on offense now. We need more points to avoid our defense going soft in the end of 4. quarter
  15. GDT Week 3: Baltimore Ravens vs Denver Broncos

    Have anyone seen Tavon Young yet? is he even out there?
