  1. You Are Wrong About Lamar Jackson - Warren Sharp

    I would root for the Pats
  2. You Are Wrong About Lamar Jackson - Warren Sharp

    I mean yeah, market wise that's probably a bigger rivalry in terms of $ and advertising, but im very confident that every football fan who isn't a fan of the eagles, cowboys, ravens and steelers would absolutely prefer to see a Ravens/Steelers SNF or MNF game. The NFC east rivalries are on primetime like every other week...and i get it for $ purposes but in terms of entertainment value i feel like most football fans are just fatigued of it.
  3. Maurice Canady is not good and he should not make the team over Jean-Baptise
  4. What are you reading? V1

    just finished Flannery O'Connor's Wise Blood. i enjoyed it.
  5. How much would Justin Tucker cost in a trade?

    The difference between Billy Cundiff in 2011 and Justin Tucker in 2012 for those Ravens teams was literally a super bowl lol
  6. Cowboys extend LB Jaylon Smith

    Pretty sure he's one of the guys that every NFL fan loves, regardless of team. Dude was a top 10 college MLB of all time and he's been great so far in his young NFL career. Good for him.
  7. For anyone unfamiliar with Warren Sharp, he's a big time "football analytics twitter" guy. He posted this article today and I thought I would share for fans who may have not watched a lot of Lamar last year but are running with this notion that he's doomed to be a terrible passer or things like that. https://www.sharpfootballanalysis.com/analysis/you-are-wrong-about-lamar-jackson/ Some interesting takeaways: "There have been only eleven quarterbacks in NFL history to attempt at least 150 passes when they were 21-years old or younger. Lamar Jackson was one of eleven. Where did he rank in passer rating? Number one of eleven. He also ranked number two in adjusted yards per attempt and number two in completion rate. The list includes Matthew Stafford, Alex Smith, Jameis Winston, Sam Darnold, Josh Rosen, and Drew Bledsoe, among others. Most of those other guys on the list are prototypes. Most are in the 6’4”, 225 lb range or bigger. Most are pocket quarterbacks with big arms who throw the ball with touch and accuracy. Most were No. 1 overall draft picks. After all, those are the guys who get to start at such a young age. The guys who were groomed to pass downfield. You would think those quarterbacks could outperform Lamar Jackson as a passer. You are wrong about Lamar Jackson." "Let’s broaden the sample. Of 45 first-round quarterbacks drafted since Peyton Manning with at least 150 attempts their rookie season, Lamar Jackson posted a HIGHER YPA and a BETTER PASSER RATING in his rookie season than these QBs drafted above him over the last several years: Andrew Luck (1st overall) Jared Goff (1st overall) Sam Bradford (1st overall) Carson Palmer (1st overall) Peyton Manning (1st overall) Carson Wentz (2nd overall) Mitchell Trubisky (2nd overall) Sam Darnold (3rd overall) Just to name a few. Of the 45, Lamar Jackson ranked in the top-10 in yards per attempt, adjusted yards per attempt, passer rating, and posted the second-lowest interception rate. You’re having trouble digesting this information. Your eyes saw something last year that your brain processed as subpar quarterback play. And your ears listened to announcers talk negatively about Jackson’s ability to pass the football. “You’re looking for the secret, but you won’t find it, because of course you’re not really looking. You don’t really want to know. You want to be fooled.” (The Prestige)" Obviously we all know Lamar isn't the most refined passer, but I found this article interesting - and I would urge you to read the entire article. Granted the FootballsFuture creating a thread curse will probably strike now that I posted this, but I ask: what do we all expect from Lamar as a passer this year?
  8. Browns QB says something that's unanimously regarded as out of pocket and obnoxious? Call Hines Ward a cheap shot artist and Ray Lewis a murderer. Lmao this is what happens when your team has had no success since '99. Now ask yourself this fellow non-browns forumers: how obnoxious will this fan base get if they DO have success? Smh buncha muppets
  9. OTA/Camp Observations 2019

    I've read way too many times this summer about Tony Jefferson getting burned and blowing coverages. When do we admit to ourselves that this guy isn't good lol Clark or Elliott need to be starting at that other spot if Tony gets burned more than a few times in the first few games
  10. Random Ravens Thoughts: New Forum Edition

    yup same. unfortunately leeroy has gotten some things right but for the most part he's been a bad dog who's just addicted to breaking news. no boops.
  11. Random Ravens Thoughts: New Forum Edition

    there's Jimmy Smith trade rumors involving the texans on twitter. that would be an all time bonehead move...there is no value we get back close to the value jimmy brings to this team.
  12. https://www.espn.com/blog/nflnation/post/_/id/191948/sam-koch-has-changed-the-punting-game-and-almost-no-one-noticed yup. i'm impressed lol i thought ravens fans would have only ever read that article/seen that special
  13. nope, can just tell. tyfys and congrats on your takie this year 😎
  14. @ramssuperbowl99 you're an AWL aren't you
