Well, that time of year has finally got here. Off another disappointing season and a long offseason, training camp 2018 starts when rookies and quarterbacks report Wednesday.
 
There are so many questions to be answered but now gradually we'll be able to see if:
 
this year's receivers are better than last year's, the offense has learned to make itself more of a threat with the passing game, whether the excitement level of the offense has improved, has the coaching got any better?
 
While we won't know the complete answers until the season gets underway, we can begin to have some conversations at last about what is happening on the field instead of rehashing the pitiful place this team has been stuck in.
 
I'm really interested to see how things start to pan out.
 
And let's hope we can keep the injury bug to a minimum.

Roman knows, in order to stay ahead of the curve, he’ll have to reinvent his attack – at least to some degree. It’s always a cat and mouse game in the NFL. One team debuts something new and innovative (Jackson’s speed), opponents adjust, and then teams adjust to the adjustments.

Just hope that they can succeed. It is make or break for Joe Flacco. Drafting Lamar Jackson is a wake up call to the former MVP.

Yup. We'll see if he got the message.

1 I don't think he cares.  2 If he cares I don't think he can do much about it.

Injuries are my biggest concern with almost 2 months of camp/preseason time before opening day.

And will all this extra work leave them worn out and flat footed in December?

 

This roster has the most players that I know the least about....since forever. Who steps forward out of the pack will be exciting to see.

I want to see "Ravens." Not check cashers.

“My philosophy is winning comes first,” Roman said. “I’m not chasing stats. Job justification stats, water cooler talk – I’m not really into that. I’m into whatever helps the team to win. Along with that, though, a physical style. Meaning we’re in control. It starts up front, but it extends everywhere. It’s a mindset. [I’m] very big on approaching the game from that perspective.”

If the defense stays the same, special teams plays the same, and the offense improves, we'll be looking at a playoff team this year. One or two on the offense have to step up and make themselves known this year.
