Random Ravens Thoughts: New Forum Edition

Recommended Posts

Well, I will be very silent the coming days. Going to London in a few hours and will be at the game sunday.

I have a seat in the nose bleed stands, but it will be alright.

Pittsburgh losing to Chicago is funny until you remember Baltimore lost to Jacksonville. Then it's just sad all around. I mean the Ravens not losing anything divisionally is great (lost wild card ground losing to an AFC opponent), but that doesn't do anything to solve the major issues the team has.

I think Jacksonville is pretty good. Said it before the season, they have a very good defense and Fournette on offense is enough to get started. The Bears aren't going to be in contention.

Of course, we got pounded and the Steelers lost in OT, so a worse day for us, for sure.

It wasn't Fournette that really gave the Ravens trouble though. That's the worrying part.

I'm not saying it's excusable, but given the unique environment and the travel time associated with playing in London, it stands to reason that the Ravens probably had a limited game plan coming into today. That is, as we saw from the game, they REALLY underestimated Bortles; stacking the box on almost every play. And Bortles, an NFL quarterback, managed to take advantage of that. That poor game plan in conjunction with the ridiculous amount of turnovers by our offense didn't do the defense any favors in terms of not getting gassed/losing motivation.

Yea, and being down and not having Brandon Williams forced us to key in on the running game. Plus the give up factor. 

IDK, maybe there are serious problems with the defense and I'm in denial, but I'm not going to believe it unless I see it over multiple weeks.

Our defense gave up close to 200 yards before the offense began to turn the ball over. It took them 5 drives to force a punt

It was an all around embarrassment. Lets just forget this game ever happened. If they string another one  like it together next week, then its time to start talking draft

Interesting that he'd come back and sign a 1-day contract to retire as a Raven, but I guess considering he won a SB with us it might make some sense

It doesn't surprise me that he'd want to retire as a Raven. The guy clearly loved his time with the team. Won a Super Bowl, got a Ravens tattoo, had the best games of his career. This is one of the little traditions in the NFL that I really like.

Jay Glazer just said we were close to trading for Bowman before San Francisco released him.

Doesn't surprise me. Bowman is a ghostly shell of his former self, but the Ravens are thin on inside linebackers. Mosley, Onwuasor, and Correa are a solid three but Freeny can be dumped. 

For what it's worth I think the 49ers and Saints actually agreed on a trade for Bowman before San Francisco just decided to cut him outright. Sounds like Navarro will have some suitors so it will be interesting to see where he lands.
