Glenn Younes: Ravens Sweet 16

I’ll keep this short and sweet, just like an NFL season. A short sweet 16 games, an amount small enough where games can’t be given away. Once again the Baltimore Ravens gave away a game and did it on the road to a lesser team that happens to run a 4-3 defense. Make of that what you will but I do know this: 12 rushing plays total that include 2 QB runs along with one reverse and one end around is not enough.

Back to my point, each week is so precious and in a league that pushes parity a team like the Ravens can’t get caught up in the shuffle of the 25 other teams in the league. Baltimore should be a top 5 or worst case top 7 team in the league. Problem is I can’t rank them that high with losses on the road to Jacksonville, Seattle and Tennessee. Elite teams can travel, elite teams are somewhat balanced, elite teams dominate lesser teams and do it consistently. The Ravens have yet to show the characteristics of an elite team. From coaches on down, elite is a term I want to use for them but it’s a term reserved for those that act as such. Ravens still got work to do.

    Wow!!!!!…..That’s all you have to say??? Hmmm, guess cause you had to eat so much crow!!! All that cash money you know what you were talking at the beginning of your radio show friday. Tavaris Jackson is a bum, Seahawks are a patthetic excuse of a team, Offense terrible, defense terrible..Yeah how did that turn out for you? Serves ’em right and double for all of you over looking Seattle and thinking you had accomplished something cause you beat Pittsburgh. ANY GIVEN SUNDAY!!!! Enjoy your miserable week.

      I couldn’t agree more!! That’s the reason I stopped watching the Ravens. I just don’t care period! They just might not make the playoffs with many teams bunched together with the same record. We’ll see what happens down the road.

    Hey Glen its Chad from used to call you on Sirius when you worked there. My #1 question is why does Rice not get enough touches? Its inexcusable for Joe Flacco to be throwing 50+ times. The entire offense is built around Rice, he should be getting at least 25 touches per game.

    And also on the defesnive side of the football why was the tackling so atrocious against Marshawn Lynch? Give me a break.

    This team has the potential to be elite but will NOT be considered that until they start to take these bottom feeders more seriously.

    It will come back to bite them if they have to open the playoffs on the road again and not even have one home game.
