#112685 Empowerment from Ravens Website

Posted by vmax on 19 August 2017 - 12:14 PM

I really dislike the word "Empower" like I need permission from someone to think and act a certain way that others approve of "asiftheyhadultimateauthorityovermebecausei'madumby".

But....Eisenberg does a good job simplifying the offensive issues.



  We don't know if Joe Flacco can go from zero to 60 when he returns. We don’t know if there’s enough pieces at running back. We don't know if there's enough playmakers. We don't know if the offensive line will hold up. So, is it OK to feel concerned? Yes...

I mean, where on offense can they say they’re completely satisfied and pleased with where things stand?

Not at quarterback, that’s for sure. Their starter, Joe Flacco, isn’t practicing because of a back injury and won’t play until the season opener. Can he go from zero to 60 and play well immediately after missing so much time? Will he and his receivers have chemistry? Most importantly, will his back hold up?

Fair questions, all...I don’t want to echo Chicken Little because it’s too soon for that and you have papa who does a great job, every day, to remind us that there is absolutely no hope......  http://www.baltimore...f6-b40d85eb9644

#112104 Ravens Interested in Kaepernick?

Posted by vmax on 02 August 2017 - 06:15 PM

Ya all missing it. The NFL doesn't want him taking a knee. The NFL is the Mob. They want to be clean. It is all about that flag. It is about that song. It is about the service men and females.


Let get this right: It's all about making a profit off of patriotism.

#109479 Harbs should keep Marty

Posted by vmax on 28 December 2016 - 06:58 AM

This team needs stability, not massive change.

They are tottering on the brink of being really good or heading south.


This morning I'm thinking about the benefits of keeping John, Marty and Dean. It's too early to make up my mind.

Let's see how they do against the Bengals.


This is how close they came to a possible 2012 season....




Now that the Pittsburgh Steelers are headed to the AFC playoffs as the likely No. 3 seed, they’ll probably play at home against Miami in the wild-card round. That’s a win, I think. They would then play a divisional-round game against Oakland, which no longer has starting quarterback Derek Carr, who broke his leg last weekend.

That would have been the Ravens’ playoff path if they had won Sunday and gone on to claim the AFC North title – Miami at home, Oakland on the road. You say that’s a dead end? I don’t think so. The Ravens obliterated Miami at M&T Bank Stadium a few weeks ago. Oakland without Carr is vulnerable.

No, the team that came within one outstretched arm of winning in Pittsburgh Sunday could have had an interesting January. That’s what makes the loss so frustrating. When quarterback Joe Flacco remarked, “It was all there for us,” he was talking about the game. But the comment reflected a larger scenario, too....http://www.baltimore...a2-702b3574ca09

OK...OK...here's the full quote:

#106811 Week 1 Results

Posted by vmax on 12 September 2016 - 03:55 PM

Yes...in an odd sort of way,he set Ravens offensive records and made Mat Stover a hero.


This ones for crav...





OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- Despite the fact it possesses a mere 16 games, an NFL season has so many moving parts -- a bye week, injuries, inconsistency brought on by the parity-ridden nature of the league -- it's basic human nature to think results posted in Labor Day's shadow would be irrelevant by Christmas.

History paints quite a different picture.

Since 1978, when the league expanded to a 16-game regular-season schedule, 288 teams that won their Week One games went on to reach the postseason, with 173 of those squads taking division titles.

But only 134 of the teams that started 0-1 ended up playing January football, with a mere 77 of them finishing first.

In their first 20 years, the Ravens followed this same pattern by winning nine openers, losing 11, and making and missing the playoffs 10 times each.

That's what made the 13-7 win against Buffalo Sept. 11, the Ravens' first Week One win since 2012 -- the year they won their second Super Bowl -- so satisfying despite a sputtering offensive performance.....https://www.pressbox...eans-everything

#104222 preseason schedule out

Posted by vmax on 08 April 2016 - 05:30 PM




Since the Ravens won't say, and since they're hiding Perriman from the press, the next best thing was to go to Perriman's position coach at Central Florida, where the 6-foot-2, 218 pounder caught 115 career passes for 2,243 yards and 16 touchdowns. 

How's he doing now?

"He came here last week and his spirits were high," Beckton said. "He said he was 100 percent and couldn't wait to get back out on the field with his teammates. He looked forward to working with his coaches and getting back out on the field with Joe Flacco. He'll be on the field when practice starts.".....http://www.carrollco...408-column.html

#102605 Super Bowl Thoughts

Posted by vmax on 10 February 2016 - 05:21 PM

Here's Smucks take on the best defense ever nonsense....



.............Their defense might have knocked Newton into another ZIP code, but it wasn't even the stingiest defense in the AFC during the regular season. The Cincinnati Bengals and Kansas City Chiefs gave up fewer points than the Broncos.

The Ravens pitched four shutouts that season and dominated their four playoff opponents, giving up an average of just 5.8 points per game and trouncing the New York Giants, 34-7, in Super Bowl XXXV.

In short, combine the regular season and the postseason and this year's Broncos defense allowed nearly twice as many points as the 2000 Ravens (340 to 188) and 132 more than the '85 Bears.

The only way to really include the Broncos in this conversation is to point out that the NFL is a more offense-minded league now than it was in 1985 or 2000, which is true.

It's just not true enough.

The average team in the AFC this year scored 361 points, about 30 points more than the average for the NFC in 1985 or the AFC of 2000 — or about two points per game. Even giving Denver extra credit for shutting down the top-scoring team in either league Sunday, it's impossible to make the "best-ever" argument stick.

Case closed...........http://www.baltimore...209-column.html

#102580 Super Bowl Thoughts

Posted by vmax on 09 February 2016 - 06:41 PM

I enjoyed the game because I like defense. then again, great defense makes the game ugly, so for many fans, this was a boring, crappy Super Bowl.

It was like "which team will crack?"

Then both offenses cracked.


OMG! WAS MANNING HORRIBLE! Embarrassing. Kubiak's smartest move was to not let him throw on 3rd and 7...or 5....or 2. Game ball for Kubiak. Darn! No fun for the Panthers D! They could not have fun. Shit! That was their winning formula. Have fun.

Nobody trusted Manning, who, on a national stage in his swan song, was an embarrassment and that's why he wanted to drink a lot of "Sadder Budwiesers" after the game.....so he could forget all people saddened by watching a great player, one of the greatest QB's ever, struggle....hobble....into the sunset.

Sadder yet was him making sure Papa John could get his mug in the limelight moments after the game ended, give him a kiss....yuck!....and then "let's market Budweisers because I own distributorships!" Like you don't have enough money Peyton....and tv commercials already.


Cam "I never saw a camera I didn't like" Newton???? He couldn't get away from the cameras fast enough...so he went forth "into the weeping and gnashing of teeth." In Cam's defense, his O line was a sieve, he had no time to throw and his receivers forgot how to catch.....and they could not run the ball. Great game plan by Phillips and excellently executed by his players.


The schizophrenic half time show????

The Corporate Dumbys thought this one up.

Tell me what it means! Please! My head hurts trying to figure it out.

OK...we have Cold Play.... and I couldn't understand a word he sang. Surrounded by the usual obligatory crowd of dancing, overly enthusiastic kids ...our clean cut American youth. On Jerry Garcia laser flower lights..60's???? .But wait! Here comes Beyonce with a female entourage of Black Panthers. What's this mean? Nobody knows! ARE WE IN THE 60'S?! Then Bruno from Mars, God of War, only he's a short version...and his all male entourage strut toward them like a Jets and the Sharks street fight is about to break out. Men in black vs Women in black! This could get interesting...if only I knew what they were saying.

Cold Play jumps in the middle. Huh? I guess no fight.... They all sing together, but unintelligibly....but thankfully, the crowd holds up signs that say this is all about love! Who'd-a-thunk?! I can hang with that. What an obvious conclusion.

 It's an American message. Definitely NFLish. I guess there wasn't enough time for the obligatory marketing ploy to "have everybody wave American flags." Maybe next year.

 And hey....no marketing ploy wardrobe malfunction and the obligatory crotch grabbing was certainly a lot less....maybe after 20 years that move is getting old. 


Good job Lady Gagaaaahhhh. Surprised me.


Von Miller....you won this game. If the Denver offense had to drive more than 2 yards then the Panthers would have won.


And please spare me this Denver defense is one of the greatest ever nonsense.


No confetti.... :cryin1:

#101911 Big Ben Alert

Posted by vmax on 08 January 2016 - 06:07 PM

Erring on the side of caution, the Cincinnati community is being pro active....



Cincinnati radio station 700 WLW is catching some criticism for its "Big Ben Warning" audio that's currently running.......

"This is a severe Ben Roethlisberger update from 700 WLW.

"The Tri-State currently under a severe Big Ben warning from now through early Sunday morning,” the spoof begins. “The Steelers quarterback has been spotted in the downtown Cincinnati area. All females ages 18-40 are to use extreme caution, especially if heavily consuming alcohol. Males should also be on the lookout just in case.

“If you see Big Ben and he flashes Little Ben, you are asked to report it to authorities immediately.

"He poses the greatest threat to 18-to-40-year-olds, especially those with boob jobs in the downtown Cincinnati area. You are safe if you live in Butler or Clermont counties, pretty much anywhere in Kentucky and most of southeast Indiana." http://www.msn.com/e...if1O?li=BBnba9I
