no big deal.

 


 

There have been questions about whether Brown will play Thursday night against the Green Bay Packers in preseason game No. 2. If he does, he won’t play much. After 26 minutes of practice Sunday, Brown was already gassed.

He is going to need time to get into playing shape. The Ravens are smart in bringing Brown around slowly. Clearly, more progress needs to be made before he goes at full tilt......https://www.baltimor...xazi-story.html

 

Here's Brown proving that he can stand up....

yet this is a big deal. From our good friend Mike....

 


 

....Brown got in about a quarter of work as far as live plays, and he is faster than he appears on film. He has several gears, which all good receivers must have, and he has great catch-up speed. He caught only one long pass but easily ran down quarterback Lamar Jackson’s attempt, even though Jackson let the pass go early in the route. Brown catches the ball with his hands and not his body. That doesn’t sound like a big deal, but late Ravens receiver Michael Jackson initially had problems with hand placement, and so did former Ravens Torrey Smith and Breshad Perriman.

Brown is still getting comfortable with planting his feet into the ground to make cuts. He was timid early in practice but became more efficient as time wore on. He is good at getting his hips down going into breaks and easily accelerates coming out of them.

The Ravens will use him in several ways, either on the outside or in the slot, and I’m sure he’ll get his share of touches on reverses, option plays, quick screens and hitches. It should be hard for opposing teams to stay with Brown on short-to-intermediate crossing routes, though cornerback Marlon Humphrey did a good job of that Sunday, even knocking down a pass or two.....https://www.baltimor...xazi-story.html

 

The good old days....

“They can say whatever they want about me, but I’m trying to compete with (Tom) Brady. People are trying to make it to Pro Bowls and stuff like that? I don’t care about that. I’m not playing for myself. I’m playing for my team. My teammates know I’m all about winning. They can see it in my face. I don’t talk about it and brag about it, but I want the Lombardi Trophy for my team.”

He is out there today.  But apparently Jimmy Smith has been out the last two days.

No need to rush Brown back and I'm glad to see they're being cautious with him.

 

If he plays a series or a little more in preseason game 3 and comes out healthy I'll be happy. 

 

I think the practice time with Lamar is what's most important with him at this point.

Wesley is using his 6-foot-4 size well, as he battles to make the roster. Jaleel Scott, Chris Moore, and Miles Boykin also had strong days at the wide receiver spot. Moore made a terrific one-handed catch, tipping the ball to himself without breaking stride. This has been a good training camp for the wide receiver position.

Yeah, fueling trade talks about Clowny... Pfff,they will rue the day they make that trade, Clowny is another player who can't stay on the field.

Smith is well over paid, but just put him at safety if he is willing, keep his injury risk down, and his penalties for a lack of make up speed, from killing a good defensive stand.

I would never make that trade.  If they trade Smith just get a pick.

It doesn't sound like a move DaCosta would make. I hope...
