NFL Network Analysts and former Ravens scout Daniel Jeremiah joined the Norris and Davis Show on Baltimore’s 105-7 THE FAN Tuesday morning to discuss what he has seen from the Ravens during training camp. Jeremiah tells that he is pleased with the strength the defense has shown, citing people like Chris Canty as being big additions to the team. He also brings up his beliefs about the Brandon Stokley signing, saying no one needs to worry about Stokley dropping passes. He believes Stokley is going to help something the losses of Dennis Pitta and Anquan Boldin.
When asked about the changes on defense this year, Jeremiah believes that they will be infinitely better than the defensive team that played on last year’s Super Bowl team. He then moves to talking about the Dallas Clark signing, saying most teams are looking to get younger tight ends, so it isn’t a big surprise that Clark was still on the market.
When prompted about the rest of the AFC North, Jeremiah believes that Cincinnati might have the most talent on their 53-man roster in the entire division, even though Joe Flacco has developed faster than Andy Dalton. The Steelers still could be a problem because their quarterback can make big plays when necessary and play at a high level. However, Jeremiah thinks there is a big drop off in talent from the three other teams to the Browns,
When asked about Tom Brady, Jeremiah tells that Brady is always going to make everyone around him better, even though most of the receivers are going to be no-names this year. He claims that Flacco is not quite ready to make everyone around him better, even though he has now won the Super Bowl and is the reigning Super Bowl MVP. He thinks the Ravens are better suited to be a power football team rather than a passing team.
