#120798 He has the car. Can he turn the key?

Posted by vmax on 30 April 2019 - 06:57 PM

It's a change in philosophy that comes with the changing of the guard. Eric has seen enough of what "at the end of their career" receivers bring to the offense. Just like under Billick the Ravens kept recycling QB's. The thought here was "why draft a QB, spend a few years developing him, only to see him scooped up in free agency?" Get a proven commodity.

But most of these receiversv and QB's are recycled from the trash heap. There are a few gems every now and then like Steve Smith , Boldin and Mason. There's a ton of clunkers to go with that group.

Speed is the other issue. You don't add speed with the aging vets and in today's NFL, being fast is a must. This offense had to get fast in a hurry with a talent like Lamar. He needs the compliments to his game now....not a guy here, a guy there over the next few years.

#120708 Lamar is showing more dedication in his 2nd yr than Joe did in about 6

I fine with all of this as long as he doesn't hang out with Kraft.

You need to lead better.  The way you started I thought he died.


That's because you have a tendency to look for the bad.

The good news is that it's correctable and non-fatal

Because they think the problem is lack of talent and not coaching? And they play hard every week?

#116898 Round 1

Posted by vmax on 27 April 2018 - 06:27 PM

Great first round.


They got the best TE and best QB in the draft.

And yea...it costs a little extra to get that.


What have we been crying for the last few years?



Got 2.


At the moment they have receivers.

But no sure handed break away TE.

Problem solved. 1st day starter.

They have a decent stable of RB's.


Now Joe has options everywhere.

No excuses.

And Lamar is a strong message.

He's also insurance if Joe's knees or back flair up. This season won't be over.

If Joe stays healthy, then great. Lamar has a year to learn and grow.


Lamar is not a run first guy. He's a pocket passer first and when nothing is there then he looks to keep the play alive and when opportunity presents itself...then he runs.......and he played in a complicated offense.

He's got swag and will be exciting to watch and will be great in the locker room.

#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:

#107090 Joe Explains Ravens Strategy To Win Ugly

Posted by vmax on 19 September 2016 - 04:02 PM

So you are saying this group of RBs is equatable to Jamal and Priest?  Also you are say that this D is like the 2000 D?


No, but thanks for revealing your overblown imagination and desire to argue.
