Harbs should keep Marty

26 December 2016 - 10:22 AM

I am assuming Harbs will keep his job for at least one more year. If that's the case I think most people (maybe even Harbs himself) want Marty gone but I disagree. Think big picture here. Think about how many coordinators and systems Flacco has gone through. We need stability at the OC position. We could go for some bright up and comer like Adam Gase was a couple of years ago but if they're successful we'll lose them after a year or two. Marty has shown me enough to give him a full offseason. He has a good relationship with Joe, I think he's creative on offense, brings a lot of much needed energy, and I think he can be influenced to run more. Best of all- who is going to hire him as a head coach? Look at what the Steelers have with Haley. It took him a few seasons to get that offense rolling but now they are dynamic. Yet how many teams have been beating down the door to interview him over the past few seasons?

Keep Marty commmit to run more and I think the offense will be fine next year.

Keep Dean Pees if you like blown leads

Two 4th Quarter leads two years ago in New England

Blown 4Q leads against the Giants, Raiders, Steelers this year

Near blown leads against the Browns, eagles, bengals (i.e. Allowing them to drive the length of the field before barely holding on)

Near blown 4th qtr lead in the super bowl. Harbaugh deserves one more year but not if he insists on bringing Pees back with him. This is becoming THE theme of the Harbaugh era.

Ray Lewis says Flacco gifted but not passionate

Some insightful comments from Ray. Granted this is coming from someone at the other end of the passion pendulum so to speak...

Should Harbs *rest* Flacco?

20 October 2016 - 08:44 PM

If you ask me Flacco's injury presents a unique opportunity for Harbaugh. To put it succienctly, Flacco needs a fire lit under his ass and giving Mallet the chance to outperform him in this offense might be just the thing to do it.

I think Flacco's biggest problem since the SB is complacency. I think he cares about how he plays and wants to win but I question whether he lost the chip on his shoulder when he hoisted the Lombardi. The best players have a nasty competitive streak - a drive to do whatever it takes to be continue to be best even after they taste success. Does Joe?

I watched Harbaughs demeanor after the game, during his post game pressor and the pressor on Monday. I think it's clear Harbs is starting to feel the pressure of losing so many close games the past two seasons. He's starting to call people out. Usually he is quick to defend his players but he had no problem calling out the secondary and threatening jobs if they don't improve their play. He did this in multiple times over the past few days. I also found it interesting that he made it a point during one of he pressors to say the oline played well. He actually corrected a reporter that suggested the line played poorly because of the pressure on Flacco. Well if the oline played well and we know west had good numbers on the ground that indirectly singles out Joe as the problem. I don't think Joe did a good job handling the Giants blitz - does Harbs agree?

Anyway - the team remained competitive with Mallett atbqb last year so starting him wouldn't be throwing in the towel. in his current state of frustration/desperation will Harbs take this opportunity to try to spark his slumping QB by making him take a seat? The timing will never be better. Flacco hasn't practiced and Harbs can pass it off as trying to give Flacco and extended break with the bye coming up.

Suggs has Torn Biceps

16 October 2016 - 08:09 PM

 

Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs tore his left biceps during Sunday's27-23 loss to the New York Giants, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter, confirming a Fox Sports report.

The injury is not considered season-ending at this point, the source said, and Suggs still wants to play.

The 14-year veteran appeared to suffer the injury while sacking quarterback Eli Manning in the fourth quarter. The medical staff put a wrap on Suggs' left arm but he did not return.

"We don't know," Suggs said when asked about the severity of the injury. "I ain't no doctor. We're going to get it looked at, but you know who I am and what I represent. I'm going to get it looked at and make sure everything is alright."

Not season ending but we don't know when he'll play again.  Tough break - his body is starting to go - ala Kobe in his final playing years.
