  1. I don’t disagree that he’s a good LB coach, but that perception was helped wary in his career by having Ray Lewis, Peter Boulware and Jamie Sharper
  2. NFL General Random Thoughts Thread

    Am I the only one getting tired of what basically amounts to NFL commenter/writer fanfic about what the Browns record COULD be?
  3. Always respect someone putting in the effort to make a full 7-round mock. My thoughts on the Ravens: 28. Baltimore Ravens: Marquise Brown WR, Oklahoma Seems like a direct replacement for John Brown (who is currently on a 1 year / $5MM deal). Would prefer that we re-sign J. Brown, but I can't hate on the idea of us investing in the future of the position that is mostly stocked with vets right now among the key contributors. 91. Baltimore Ravens: Anfernee Jennings OLB, Alabama Not sure how I feel about this pick. Raw talent checks the boxes, but has mediocre production to date. Would make some sense to backfill for the likely loss of Zardarius Smith and eventual retirement of T-Sizzle. 103. Baltimore Ravens (comp): Justice Hill RB, Oklahoma State This is fine. 131. Baltimore Ravens: Beau Benzschawel G, Wisconsin I wish we would have gone after a T/G prospect earlier in our draft. Not having a 2 makes that a bit more difficult. 167. Baltimore Ravens: Donovan Wilson S, Texas A&M 191. Baltimore Ravens (via TEN): Ty Summers ILB, TCU 200. Baltimore Ravens: John Reid CB, Penn State These are all fine. Very dependent on what we do with our rosters, etc.
  4. 2019 NFL Draft - Running Backs

    Ty Johnson would be a great fit in a ZBS. Reminds me of a poor-man's Clinton Portis coming out of the U. Probably too high-variance (despite career 7.5 YPC average) to be an every down back, but his speed and contributions to ST (offers some dynamic return ability) should get him drafted on day 3. I think he's a strong round 4-6 fit.
  5. 2019 NFL Draft - Secondary

    Darnell Savage (Sr.) and Antoine Brooks, Jr. (Jr.) from Maryland should both be draftable.
  6. I think we sack cam 5+ times. His release is looking really slow and like he really has to physically exert himself to get the ball down the field.
  7. This was the most egregious one IMO. I was screaming about this in real-time.
  8. Ultimately it was a close, back-and-forth game between two very good teams. It didn't break our way, unfortunately. I think we match up well against Carolina, personally.
  9. Week 7 GDT

    That’s fair, but I thought the same the other time watched him this season.
  10. Week 7 GDT

    Is it just me or has Newton lost a lot of zip on his passes? It looks like he’s physically laboring to get the ball any distance down the field.
  11. Henry can rush from inside. Smith rushes interior sometimes as well (he’s a lot like McPhee, but a bit more edge oriented).
  12. I don't necessarily disagree with your desired result, but please expand on the "problematic" point.
  13. Also, even though his contract has been cited as nauseum as an albatross, it would probably actually yield positive surplus value to an acquiring team. “How can this be?!?!?” You ask. Acquiring team would be free of the signing bonus amortization portion of his contract and could go year to year with him on salaries of 18m (2019), 20m (2020) and 24m (2021), which is incredibly reasonable.
  14. Without getting too much into the specifics of Rice himself, one thing that bothered me about that episode was fans/public ratcheting up their insistence that the NFL be the primary arbiter of justice for these things. Honestly, your first thought shouldn’t be, “what’s the NFL going to do about this?” If one wanted Rice to be punished, they should have first been contemplating NJ laws and considering how it was handled there. NFL definitely brought it on themselves in some ways, but fans/public certainly aren’t blameless. End rant.
