  1. Team should be laser focused and if they prepare right and execute, they should be able to get that W. The Miami OL is bad, so our new D should be able to rush the passer and force mistakes, hopefully turnovers. While the Miami DB's are good, I think as long as Carr keeps this up he can work them in the middle of the field. Would be sweet if Jacobs could return, so we could have some running game too
  2. Drake has his role and his dedicated packages. Gruden might just stick to that and use Barber as the hammering ram. Than again it could be just a HC sayin stuff to make the DC guessing more before the game.
  3. Hey! Thanks a lot for sharing your point of view! I'm looking forward to a great, injury free game!!
  4. We will see I guess. The Ravens running game is not a traditional one for sure, so it could be missleading.
  5. Bradley's scheme is quite different now. With Bosa and Ingram he used the 4T less and less and with the Crosby-Yannick duo we will also use that less. Ferrell, Thomas or Massive could play that role and will do so in certain situations, but that is not the base, core of our D now.
  6. Against a pretty good Bills DL. I think that interior is solid, Harris is a quality RB and we could struggle. That's all I'm saying.
  7. Super hard game incoming... 1, Short week after a long, emotional and physical game 2, Early east coast game 3, We are already down 2 veterans from our starting OL and the Steelers have legit pass rushers 4, Miller-Simpson-James-Elumeunor-Leatherwood OL will struggle mightily to push that DL in the running game 5, Gruden's O is totally different without a running game 6, Those receivers will give fits to our DB's 7, Their interior OL looks solid and Harris is a quality RB, while our run D looks suspect 8, They have a really solid CB unit, which could slo
  8. Probably would be more expensive too and unless JJ has a serious injury I can't see that JJ, Drake, Murray backfield. Would be way too expensive. If Murray would come back on a cheap deal, then a no brainer, since he is a great pass blocker and a solid runner as well.
  9. That is kinda true for every NFL game
  10. I think this will be a tough game, but we will come out strong and get a statement win. The Ravens recieving core is heavily hit. The run game will be their key and even there they have a big injury problem. The key will obviously be Lamar. Our main focus should be to contain Jackson IMO. I could care less about outside pass rush in this one, I want to see our EDGE guys and LBs focusing on Lamar's run. I want him in that pocket and force them to play traditional football. Their D will be an handful and we need a great plan to attack them. It will be a big early test for our new OL. I
  11. Nah M.Lewis had that and we can say it for sure now IMO after his run with us. The sad part in this is how Gruden was so blindfolded with this and how long he kept his guy...
  12. I also wanted to throw that nugget in...I also recall that Bradley did well against mobile QBs and if I'm correct he did really well against the Ravens last year...maybe I'm just wanna believe that
  13. No! Ragas will be behind JJ and Drake, so he will have really limited PT even if he gets the roster spot.
  14. Sure thing! But how many short QB's failed? The exceptions are always the great stories, but there are size thresholds for a reason in the NFL. It is super difficult to succeed with that size. Could Stills be an exception? Sure. But a GM won't put his job on the line with risky decisions like that. That is why he went undrafted and the reason he was signed after the draft by us, is because we bet on him being an exception. You can and should bet on guys like him in the UDFA period or late in the draft if you roster is already strong.
  15. This is the Defense thread guys. Don't need to turn this into a Carr thread or offense thread. We have those already...
  16. Check Stils spider chart and % numbers: https://www.mockdraftable.com/player/darius-stills Height, weight, wingspan, armlenght, handsize are all really low. This has to be super rare, that he is this bad in every aspect of size. If you put his weak bench press to this, which could suggest that he is weak too makes for a total train wreck. He was able to live off of his athleticism and technique in college, but that is extremely unlikely in the NFL, where every OL is on a different level. I don't know what was the issue with Nixon. I thought that he was a really
  17. There is no training for short arms That is his big issue in the NFL IMO. That is why he went UDFA IMO.
  18. When you hit on the big ones and they became All Pro guys, suddenly your mid round guys starts to be good. Obviously not every time, but at a much higher rate. When you have an All Pro QB, your mid round WRs will become a lot better... When you have an All Pro LT and OC, your mid rounder OL picks start to work better... When you have a great DE and a good DT, suddenly the mid/late round front 7 picks start to work better... etc...
  19. It will be interesting to see how much of a factor was PG and his scheme. Ferrell had to watch for the run IMO and in the college he just rushed and then reacted if there was a run play...IM just guessing here...
  20. Vic said lots of inaccurate stuff lately IMO. I mean sure, the writing is on the wall, they want him to start and to develope into a quality starter, but that's it. I doubt they will force him into a starting position if Martin looks clearly better. They must know that Carr needs a steady OL, especially in the middle... Andre can pick up an injury along they way, so the faces are saved and still the best OC starts. I'm not saying this will happen, I just saying that Vic knows as much as we do IMO...
  21. Bradley doesn't use that SAM/SLB role like they did in Seattle. There will be basically 2 SLB/SAM player/role IMO. When the SLB is a classic LB and have cover duties and when the SLB is the 3-4OLB type pass rusher, edge container. Let's call the first one SLB and the second one SAM. At SLB Nicholas Morrow will be the player and will be used similarly to White With the Chargers. At SAM Crosby, Koonce and even Yannick will get his chance IMO and their role will be the Melvin Gordon, Nwosu role. 4-3 base will be with SLB and from that when we shift to 4-3 under we wi
  22. Don't forget that Ferrell will play DT in nickel and dime packages a lot. We are not thin at DT.
  23. Richie hasn't played RG in 11 years or something like that. I would definately keep him at LG to help Andre as much as possible. When/if he goes down Simpson should be able to step in his place. I would put Good at RG to be a veteran next to Leatherwood and also Andre...
  24. I think Drake's arrival is what makes Richard expendable and also that is what could open the door for a non pass cathing, power RB as a 3rd RB.
