  1. 2019 CFB/2020 Draft Prospects

    I think Alaka might have a good shot at taking on the MIKE duties this upcoming season. It's not an every-down position anymore and that dude is good. Hopefully he's healthy. I'm more concerned about the true off-ball guy that drops and plays in space. Baltimore needs, and has needed, someone with range there for a long time. That they trust more than they did Kenny Young I suppose. Sounds like could Davis-Gaither fit the bill.

    This isn't Yannick's decision. He's getting the tag, no doubt about it. Maybe next season if his camp decides not to sign the franchise tender.
  3. Evaluating the 2019 draft class

    Eh. Brown and Ferguson were the only ones we've seen enough from to start drawing conclusions. Brown is good. Just needs to stay healthy... and man what is he going to look like when he's actually fully healthy heading into a season. Ferguson wasn't particularly impressive. Didn't pop much or make a ton of relevant plays. He needs to take advantage of a full NFL offseason and improve his body. I'm not leaning one way or another on Boykin. Just wasn't involved enough. Hopefully Roberts isn't brought back so either Miles or some other quality option can get those snaps. Same with Hill, but his path to playing time is way more crowded. The team loves Ingram and Edwards will be back. Maybe some snaps in the slot, taking away from Snead, is a viable option. Everyone else? Get on the field. Don't know anything until then.
  4. To trade or not to trade that is the question?

    I believe Mosley was signed before Douglas took over too. So he probably has no strings attached to that signing/contract. I'm not sure how a roster bonus works in terms of trades but C.J. is guaranteed $16 million this upcoming season, and an additional $1.5 million prorated for New York's cap purposes. His signing bonus was only $7.5 million. Still really expensive.

    A bad thought. No.
  6. DB424 Mock Offseason

    Yeah, I'm not seeing a "real" offensive system that incorporates three different guys in three different roles are running simultaneously in a single game-plan. Just two, although two are used a lot. I think the group is fine and doesn't need any subtractions or additions. It's on Roman to actually rotate out a bit more. Yes, Andrews and Boyle are amazing at what they do and they compliment each other perfectly. But Hurst can fill in at either role, and not in just the capacity of being a body at a certain spot. Andrews and Hurst is a tremendous pass-catching set with the latter being in to block if it's a run that's set up to look like a pass because of the personnel. Boyle and Hurst is a pretty top-notch blocking duo and Hurst can actually run a route, get open, and/or do something after he catches the ball. This really is not that hard and I hope we see Roman evolve as an offensive play-caller and developer. The base is there are a dynamic rushing team. Now it's time to get the passing game more well-rounded... and aggressive. That hasn't been his MO but the dude isn't a dinosaur either. There's hope for him yet. The maturing of the young offensive skill guys is going to go a long ways towards this as well. Also, lets not forget Boyle is one failed drug test away from his third strike too. That's a big one. And the durability at the position thing db mentioned is real. I like the depth the team has at the cost. Just have to capitalize on it. Give the offense an actual good vet receiver and another quality offensive lineman and forget it.

    Need more quality bodies in the front seven though. Even if Yanda retires there's only one, maybe two spots open on the offensive line. Still needs to be addressed but boy howdy the defense needs a lot of help there.

    I guess I didn't quite realize what the front seven was going to look like heading into this offseason. Seeing it listed out like this... woof. That's the priority folks.

    And thus, Baltimore's season has concluded. The offseason thread will be up soon.
  11. Ravens Roster Offseason Plans

    Well, that was the idea behind our hope for Jefferson after his signing. That's not how the team actually uses him though. Maybe if both he and Clark are back that changes with how well Chuck is playing... but I'm not holding my breathe. Just cut him. I'm fine with center. Between Mekari and Skura that's pretty solid. Both guard spots should be looked at though. Replacing Yanda at the same level is nigh on impossible but adding a competent guy and getting better play out of the left side at the same time would help. I mean Bozeman isn't bad (like Hurst most of the time), he's just there. And also another option at center. Tackles are set. Defensive line needs some help. Pierce is likely gone and Williams needs some guy that can penetrate to complement him. Wormley is a fine rotation piece to come in and take snaps when needed and not play way out of line, nothing more. Linebackers... yeah. Definitely need at least one good all-around off-ball guy. And another edge rusher if Judon isn't kept. That's the biggest question mark right now. Who knows what the team is thinking on that front. A good, reliable veteran at wide receiver would be great. Not some value, going downhill fast type like the team has gravitated towards in the past. I don't think a high draft pick is in play here unless some insane value rolls along. I think another corner would be nice, even if Jimmy is brought back. Between him and Young there isn't much reason to expect durability. I'm assuming Carr gets cut. Humphrey and Peters are great, but the team is leaning heavily on the secondary and they need to make sure all the depth there is legit. Nothing else stands out too much to me at the moment. But there isn't much left either lol. QB, RB, FB, TE, K, P, and LS are good. Unless Koch decides to hang up the cleats too.

    Nah. Clark's good. Everybody sees it but you apparently.
  13. Yup. These games... we have no control over whatsoever. The older I get the more mentally invested I become in things that I can actually affect. That's partially why I've been posting less often this season even though it was a great one. And partially because I work a ton and I don't want to expend the effort to get down to some serious debating.
  14. Yeah, it was a bad game-plan and paralleled game-management... but those drops man. And that first drive where the passed bounced off of Andrews for an INT was probably the pivotal moment. Bleh. It was a good, entertaining season. Sucks to end that way but oh well. The team is only going to come back better next year given how little turnover/loss of talent there will be.
