Hall of Famer (6/7)



  1. I got this information from FiveThiryEight. Here's a problem that needs to be fixed: As a team, Baltimore is converting its third downs just 34.5 percent of the time, 27th in the NFL and 6.1 percentage points below league average. So far the Ravens have been great on 1st and 2nd downs converting to a 1st down 40% of the time. Justin Herbert And Lamar Jackson Are Crushing It … On Different Downs | FiveThirtyEight Bart Scott.
  2. Todays Question: Are the Ravens going to show a more run heavy offense Sunday to keep Herbert off the field? Fact Why strategy could change...
  3. Yes! I am also willing to do detention and offer it up.
  4. ..John Urschel (@JohnCUrschel) In case you didn't know, I got my PhD from MIT math (!) and I'm now a member at the Institute for Advanced Study, in Princeton NJ. I've only been here two weeks, but I love it already. They did a little profile of myself and three other scholars: https://t.co/Kl99kq31CH Ken McKusick (@FilmstudyRavens) The Ravens have 4 players averaging over 9 yards per target with at least 8 receptions: Sammy Watkins: 9.13 Mark Andrews: 10.53 Marquise Brown: 11.87 James Proche: 13.11 In their history, there have only been 8 previous seasons of 9.0 or better with 20 receptions. PFF BAL Ravens (@PFF_Ravens) Highest-graded #Ravens through five games (min. 125 snaps): Mark Andrews, TE- 90.6 Calais Campbell, DI- 89.4 Lamar Jackson, QB- 87.1 Marquise Brown, WR- 82.8 Chuck Clark, S- 75.0 Sarah Ellison (@sgellison) Mark Andrews leads all NFL tight ends in receiving yards so far this season 1. Mark Andrews: 400 yards, 29 rec 2. Travis Kelce: 369, 30 3. Darren Waller: 319, 28 4. Kyle Pitts: 308, 24 5. Dalton Schultz: 280, 26 PFF BAL Ravens (@PFF_Ravens) Mark Andrews among TEs this season: 90.6 grade 89.9 receiving grade 400 receiving yards 11 explosive (15+ yard) catches Jeff Zrebiec (@jeffzrebiec) Marlon Humphrey was in Patrick Queen’s face after he missed that last tackle Ravens defense has been on skates on this drive.
  5. It's not one of my fun things to do, yet every now and then you have to face reality. This means that today we take a look at the Chargers offense and their playmakers of which there are many. The Chargers have the 7th ranked offense in the NFL in yards. Surprisingly the Ravens are #1. In scoring points per game, which I consider a more important stat, the Chargers are at #6 at 28.4 per game and the Ravens at number nine with 27.2. Here's where it begins to get scary, the Chargers have the #3 passing attack, averaging 303 yards per game. The Ravens are at #6 averaging 291.8 yards per game. Here's the Chargers playmakers: Justin Herbert 1576 yards passing, 67.2 completion percentage, 7.64 average yards per pass 13 touchdowns and three interceptions and a rating of 104.7. It's interesting to note that Herbert is the #4 passer in the league and Lamar is #5. Their statistics are that close. Williams WR 15.2 ypp for six touchdowns and 94.2 yards per game with 6 TD's. Allen WR 12.7 ypp one touchdown 73.8 ypg with1 TD. TE Cook has 210 yards for a 12.4ypp averaging 42 yards per game with one touchdown But Wait! They have the #7 ranked rusher in the league in Eckler who has 349 yards, 5.2 ypc, 4 touchdowns for 69.8 yards per game. Who is #8 ? Lamar....Oh...and Eckler has 23 receptions for 194 yards. That's an 8.45 ypp for three TDs and 38.8 yards per game! Yikes! This is going to be one hell of a Boss to beat to get to the next level. On defense, Darwin James leads the team with 42 tackles, Samuel 2 interceptions, Team has a total of 10 sacks with Bosa leading the way at 2.5 I have no idea how the Ravens defense can stand up to this. Consider this: Monday night Carson Wentz, with pedestrian receivers, had a career high 402 yards passing, 11.5 yards per pass for a rating of 128.5. The team reception average was 16.1 ypp. They ran for 123 yards with a 4.7 yards per carry. What do you think this Chargers offense will do? I, for one, for reasons stated above, refuse to go to the Fear Place. On paper we have a shoot out, I'm starting to see expert predictions like 41-38 Chargers ... So...hehee...YES.... This sets up to be another one of those games, as to who has the ball last, as the final seconds tick off the clock and we all know what happens then! Therefore the ER staff of highly trained psychiatrists... urge you to ..sit tight......keep cool.....Have a paper bag handy......Breathe...get ready.......and Freak Out!.
  6. Today: Jeff Zrebiec • TweetShift BOT — Today at 4:58 PM Harbaugh on ILB play: “We need more. There’s no question about that.”\ Some good news on Smith, Stephens and Oweh from Ken McKusick the Film Study King....
  7. Check out the last video on this article from the Ravens website. Especially if you're having a rough day. It's Ravens fans going crazy when Brown scores the TD in OT. It's titled .Pandemonium at M&T Bank Stadium for Ravens' Epic Comeback.. Lamar Jackson Has Only One More Narrative to Slay (baltimoreravens.com)
  8. No! I go to the games except when it very cold and raining. My son can have that ticket. Monday night I asked the woman sitting next to me if she knew CPR. She said, "Yes! I'm certified!"
  9. All of us are concerned....Jeff Zrebiec writes a nice piece here....He's really up to the minute on the Ravens and has solid insight...
  10. I'm thinking the same way. I also have my purple shades on and see him getting an interception this week....well...maybe I'm concussed.
  11. Crazy.......“Ravens have rallied to win three games this season in which they’ve had less than an 8% win probability in 2nd half. Crazier....“Lamar Jackson was named AFC Offensive Player of the Week after throwing for 442 yards and four TDs. Jackson has won this award eight times in his last 35 starts (since start of the 2019’season).” “Ravens are a 3-point favorite over the Chargers. Fun fact: Since 2016, Baltimore is 13-1 in games coming on a short week (fewer than 6 days of rest)” All from Hensley's Twitter
  12. There are very few things in life that I do not understand. This is one of them. Ravens win percentage 58.7% This is a game and match up that before the season began many Ravens fans penciled in as a L However, after the last four games, expect....well....trying to find a word for it... quite simply the Chargers are going to get Lamar'd. .. During Monday Night's game, as the 3rd quarter wound down, I sat with a bevy of Fine Fellow Ravens Fans in section 117 and with furrowed brows and Grey Poupon stained faces, we began working out the most outrageous scenario for the Ravens to come back and win the game. "Defense holds...shut out from here on out...3 Touchdowns and 2 2point conversions...right?" All heads nodded in agreement. Our computations had to be outrageous considering the circumstances. All of them happened. I mean, even Cynthia Freedland's computer simulations crashed due to a Ravens virus. It defied football logic and therefore I cannot count out the Ravens chances to win this game. All of us watched a Ravens defense that still struggles with coverage and tackling. We know the injury situation. The running game is finally stalled out at 87 yards Monday night. We are all looking at an offensive line that is struggling to find bodies to man the positions. And coming into town is Justin Herbert and a high powered Chargers offense. But wait! If we look at the match up stats, then you will see that we have two very similar teams going head-to-head Sunday. Both teams are 4-1 and are considered playoff contenders at this point in the season. Team Stats Points Per Game 28.4 27.2 Points Allowed Per Game 23.2 23.4 Total Yards 423.6 452.6 Yards Passing 315.2 303.8 Yards Rushing 108.4 148.8 Yards Allowed 384.2 408.2 Pass Yards Allowed 226.6 315.0 Rush Yards Allowed 157.6 93.2 Something has to give and I'm not going to the Fear Place. I intend to walk into the Bank with 70,000 fellow Ravens fans and raise a Wall of Purple Pain to warmly greet the Chargers. We know how to do CPR and we know to neve, ever give up. I have no idea how the Ravens are going to do it, yet my best guess will be that the Ravens win an aerial assault, similar to the Battle of Britain. And once again, like Monday Night, at some point,...at some frayed nerve racking point... the Ravens defense will hold and open the door for yes!..... The Obligatory Ravens Last Minute Winning Scoring Drive. The game will probably go like this............ "Hey! What about me?!" "I always save the best for last. Of course you kick the game winner." And.....The crowd goes wild and life unfolds as it should. .Damn I love Happy Endings.
  13. Update: Clevelands injury not serious. He should be back in 3-4 weeks. Colon and Powers are available. Tyree Phillips is still rehabbing so maybe he's back by Thanksgiving??? The Ravens have Smith, David Sharpe; and Jaryd Jones-Smith on PS. Ealy suspended substance abuse. Cup not completely bare. Amazing how they are finding ways to win. It feels like they find 1 more way to win than lose.
