  1. Why doest every parking lot in this country have solar panels in them that we park under. I just recently saw a vid on a technology they are about to use in the UK. They are going to add little vertical wind turbines to the light poles on the highways and as cars go by the wind off them turn the turbine. That is in addition to a windy day. Each one would power a few houses for a yr by the estimates. We have a lot of highway miles with probably millions of lights on them,

  15. Hill is a wasted roster spot, I know, I know, he is a decent special teams player. But if it windy out, he can't move unless he wants to be blown over by a 5 mph gust... Gurlie is just not dependable now, slowed by his knee injuries and can he even run in this type of offensive blocking scheme?

  16. Now...after I wasted my breath and fingers....because I'm stupid... #20 coming up! Pre season or not...there is a scoreboard. It's there for a reason. It will have some numbers on it. And it is the WTF'ers. It would be nice to get #20, yet I'll admit that getting Lamar, Stanley and the O line out there is very important....maybe some receivers???? Watkins?? .get them some live action work. And I have my roster card because there are a lot of players who I want to see if they are the future.

  20. John " BY All" Means just threw a 9 inning no hit shut out! 113 pitchers, great command, ton of 1st pitch strikes, ...really...a thing of beauty. 1st time for an Oriole in 52 years since Jim Palmer. By the 7th I was on the edge of my seat. Shit...it's rare for a pitcher to go 9 innings in today's baseball. O's beat the Mariners 6-0.

  25. I think it's hard to improve when you lose 2 of your best linemen and your not given the tools to succeed. No reason for teams to respect the passing game when no one can consistently get open or catch the ball besides a tight end. Look at the talent around some of the other young QBs like Allen, Murray, or Mahomes. Night and day. But that's just my opinion. I didn't "know" how his career would go when he was drafted so I watch objectively.

  26. No. Just no. He does not get to receive congrats and platitudes four years and two weeks, respectively after having his turtle head so far up Trump's butt. No. Screw him.

  27. Spen, you cut me to the quick. Maybe I was a bit premature with my pedigree remarks about Lamar. Maybe not. Here's the thing - Lamar has a very unconventional skill set and he's almost impossible for teams to game plan for. When he's doing his thing and yes, having fun, he's almost impossible to stop and a helluva lot of fun to watch. Sure, fun isn't the metric or requirement; its the effect or outcome. Bill Pollian, ESPN, & NFL Network, offered an interesting perspective on XM radio this morning. He said with Lamar's unbelievable skill set, you almost can never truly game plan for him. Interestingly, he added that the decision give Ronnie Stanley a long term deal is closely linked to what the Ravens deal with Lamar. His reasoning - Lamar may not need the conventional blocking ( blind side LT) and signing Stanley could be counter with how we use and hence contract Lamar. His point is the Stanley and Lamar (future) signings have interesting implications and could be viewed as mutually exclusive. If you sign or extend Lamar then did we really need Stanley or could we look to OBJ as the better, wiser long term LT solution. Interesting food for thought. Back to the pedigree.... Pollian suggested that Lamar's amazing performance thus far (3 years) has gone without a hitch and hardly a nick. That's great but he and others believe that with his amazing skillset, Lamar may have an effective NFL shelf life similar to Cam Newtons (i.e. 7-8 years). I personally think Lamar has greater skills and pedigree than Cam but could envision an effective shelf life of 7-8 years. Here's the point - if Pollian and others are right (or even close), we might have already witnessed almost half of his effective shelf life in the NFL. And is his pedigree, which I truly enjoy and is fun to watch, is it fleeting ? Its a good topic to debate or ponder and there are no right or wrong answers. Fleeting or not, I'll continue to enjoy and look for whether Lamar is having fun - because a happy Lamar is a successful Lamar and a winning team. And you can bet Saturday night, given the respite from the broken world you described, I'll be watching Lamar and hopefully he and the team have a lot of fun in Buffalo.

  37. Thanks for asking. We're still in Cleveland at the Cleveland Clinic. His progress since the op has been slow. Today they're going back in to clean up some stuff. We are hoping and praying this is the end of the bad news. Doing everything I can to distract myself since only one visitor (his Mom) is allowed. Glad the board is here.

  40. Agreed the TEAM lost. And at 23 with his makeshift OL, barely serviceable WRs and questionable play calling, Lamar can only do what can he do? Still, at some point - maybe not this year - he will need to will the TEAM to victory, win the big ones, and yes a playoff game. He will get many chances to win, starting Sunday against the Titans.

  41. Should have had two picks, missed a few open guys deep sown field when he chose to throw short. Those deep passes change games, win games. Was he the reason they lost? No, not by him self, that is not what I am saying. You want me to grade out the linmen? i will, the receivers? i will, start a thread on them or any position. But we are talking about Lamar and what he needs to do to improve.

  42. I've been screaming play action for weeks, but that is not the main problem as we saw last night once again. Clearly he can only make throws that are right in front of him, consistently. The Pats ran mostly man and while Lamar had good numbers, numbers lie sometimes. If he can't beat man defense, this team will never win consistently any longer. Last year will have been a fluke; teams not ready for him, now they are and big plays disappear. Big games are still an issue, clearly.

  45. I thought the O line would lose this game yet they really came though. Players went down, players switched positions and they battled hard. All fight in that group. They steam rolled the Steelers D for 265 yards. Can't ask for more. 4 turnovers by Lamar killed their chances yet they still could have won. Then... 9 penalties for 110 yards killed their chances and to the Steelers credit, they took advantage of this and made the plays. They remained patient and found the way to win. As for the discussions above about letting Lamar go in free agency: No fucking way. As a fan I like winning games. I don't have to have a Super Bowl winning team every year. I love the exciting games. Lamar is young, smart and driven. He will get better. Give me another 5-10 years like we have seen with the hope of him improving. That's a lot of fun Sundays. There is some truth in this. Just look at Rodgers and the Packers. He got paid and no more Super Bowls....BUT!.......Their fans have had a ton of very exciting games. They are generally always in it. There are a lot of teams with high paid QB's who can't afford to build a team around them. Nevertheless....look at this...... The Steelers, Chiefs, Packers and Seahawks are all seriously in the Hunt. and...LOL!....the Eagles too. So you can win and win big with high paid QB's. Organizations just has to be fortunate to have made the right choice on who to bank their fortunes. You have to have a QB who can carry an offense. Lamar is not there yet as a passer.....but as a threat, he is 100% there. Remember: He now has 30 starts...he's a sophomore. 7 games in 2018 as basically a runner, 16 games in 2019 transitioning into a passer/runner with an offensive rushing scheme that took the NFL by surprise. 7 games in 2020 in a league that has adjusted to the Ravens style of offense. There is a ton of room to get better. A high ceiling once adjustments are made and Lamar grows. We should have a separate thread on this interesting topic. I love to argue! Hard to put this game to rest....Give me Johnny for a little while.... "On the Sunday morning sidewalk, Wishing, Lord, that I was stoned...................."
