In Topic: This is still a game where the defense wins games.

I'm leaning towards a very good defense. I have my doubts about the linebackers and safety's coverage skills.

A big IF is the O line. "IF" the are decent or adequate then I see this team having a very good chance at making the playoffs.

 

The schedule: I love it. Nothing but good, solid competition. Iron sharpens Iron. IF the Ravens make they playoffs, then they will have developed into a very good team...yes...dangerous in the playoffs.

 

It's too early to predict records for me. I'll stay in the "Show Me" mode.

9-7.

Show Me that they know how to find ways to win instead of finding ways to lose.  Show Me they can beat teams with winning records. Show Me they can win in the Division. Show Me they can defeat playoff caliber teams.

 

Now that said...I believe in this 2018 Team. :gorave:

Really fun night at the game. Beautiful summer evening. Stadium upgrades are great. The new scoreboard is impressive with live updates from around the league. Also the food prices are much more fane friendly. $20 bought us a lot.

 

The Joe and Lamar show was very encouraging. The disappointment was the Rams did not play their starters so I'm taking Prestons advice and drinking diet Purple Kool Aid.

Yet Joe was very sharp and in one series hit multiple receivers leading the opening drive to Ricards TD.

Lamar put some sick moves on the Rams on his TD run. Moore made a spectacular catch and Perriman shinned albeit against 3rd stringers. Williams was awesome.

!2 1st downs to 1 for the Ravens in the first quarter. rams 5 yards in 1st quarter

 

Running off to work now....little sleep, but I'm sick of being a responsible adult all the time... once in a while being irresponsible is ok. :gorave:

Nice read Max. I can remember the first Colts game I ever went to. It was against the L.A. Rams and it was really cold blistery day at Memorial Stadium. First play from scrimmage, Unitas dropped back and hit John Mackey across the middle for about 30 yards. Mackey broke a couple of tackles and went all the way and just like that we were up 7 zip.

As far as this season goes, I got a gut feeling that we're going to do better than is expected. Playoffs baby.

In Topic: Biggest Team Weakness

08 August 2018 - 04:51 AM

Looks like there are 2 more concerns that carry over from last year.

The linebackers struggle in coverage and my confidence in Weddle and Jefferson in their coverage skills is low.

 

The good news is that it's beginning to look like the front 7 are getting consistent pressure of the QB which hides a lot of sins.

 

We'll have a better evaluation tomorrow night. The Rams are fast with a lot of offensive weapons.
