This is a hard day for me because I've got to admit I'm too old to sit in 3 hours of rain plus all the walking to the stadium. Plus I don't like riding my bike in the rain.

I'm sure there will be other no shows like me.

Playoff game? I'm there.

Steelers? I'm there.

Bills???? Steady downpour????

 

I've been pumped up for a month looking forward to opening day. You know the organization will go all out. They are honoring Boldin. The Ravens look like a very good team on paper, so I want to see how they stack up when it's real. And...I really want to cheer them on with my fellow fans.         

This is a beefed up roster, resurrected from the ashes of last season, with a ton of talent and hungry players.

They should be in every game this year with a decent chance of making the playoffs.

When an NFL season is over, there is a game or a stretch of them that usually defines it. The Ravens are about to enter one of those periods.

Lots of positives from this game...passing game with Joe, Defense all game. Pass protection. Receivers getting open and catching the wet ball.

 

Negatives: Jackson isn't ready for prime time. Needs to use his ability to extend plays. Less running by him will be better for him and team.

 

Outlook: Purple Kool-Aid on sale. 

 

Watch out for Thursday! Bengals will be tough.

There were a lot of empty seats.  The Bills are awful.

100% correct.  He barely looks like he is trying to throw it.  Also to many designed run plays for him.  That isn't making him better.  During the game I was thinnking of Vick when he was a rookie.  Whatever his problems were he did want to throw the ball.

Last year the Bills allowed the 2nd fewest TD passes in the NFL. Brown, Snead and Crabtree each had 1.

Yes...to nit pick...I wasn't happy with the run game in the 1st half...but Damn!!!...the Ravens were so totally dominant and this bodes well. :gorave:

They spanked a lesser opponent like a quality team does.

 

Very surprised to see how much Jackson was on the field in the first half. Teams have to game plan for this.

 

It was a slaughter.

 

Oh Yea! Steelers and Browns tie!!! :yeah:

Letting these starters sit after the second half is going to really help these players go into Cincy. Good call Harbs.

Now, let's give these Bengals a black eye in front of their fans and show this conference who is in charge this season.

Pretty exciting to watch and great to see all three new FA additions with TDs...

Lack of running game and presence of fumbles made me sigh a bit...

 

Great start now let's see if they can be consistent.

Early report:


 

The Baltimore Ravens defeated theCincinnati Bengals  :thumbup:  47-3, but the win may have come at a cost. Running back Kenneth Dixon suffered a knee injury late in the fourth quarter, and he did not return to the game.Before exiting the game early, he rushed for 44 yards and a touchdown. This could be a concerning development for Dixon as this is his fourth knee injury since being drafted by Baltimore in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft. His NFL career has not gone the way the Ravens had planned as he has missed a substantial amount of games due to injuries and suspensions. Dixon was placed on injured reserve before the start of the 2017 season, while also missing four games in 2016. According to the Athletic’s Jeff Zrebiec, Dixon is expected to ‘miss some time,’ which will test Baltimore’s depth at the running back position.....https://www.msn.com/...rs?ocid=U508DHP

Gee, the poor guy can't stay healthy. Bring up Gus Thompson or Turner if need be. They will contribute.

I've always liked this guy, except for his inability to stay healthy. I agree with you, bring either one of these guys up.

How long is Dixon going to be out?

Extended use of Jackson v Bills is a ruse to have other teams waste more than usual practice time.

I think it is to get Joe out of the firing line and Jackson some much needed reps.  It is what every team would want to do.

No, it is what college teams do, it never works in the NFL, it messes up the rythem of an offense, can even end drives that could be a turning point in a game.

It is foolish.

It happens all the time when teams get routed in the NFL.  In college there are more routes so it happens there more.
