Baltimore Ravens writer John Eisenberg joined the Norris and Davis Show on Baltimore’s 105-7 THE FAN Wednesday morning to discuss the acquisitions of Brandon Stokley and Dallas Clark, saying both guys are “pieces of plan B” since the Ravens don’t have Anquan Boldin and Dennis Pitta for the year. He believes Jacoby Jones will need to step up, along with many other things needing to happen. He brings up the acquisitions as getting people with a known track record rather than trusting only guys without NFL resumes.
He transitions to talk about the team’s center race, talking about the battle between Gino Gradkowski and A.Q. Shipley to start. He mentions that it is a tight race as of now. Eisenberg then talks about the injury of Jameel McClain, saying the team needed to move on from from waiting for him to get better. He believes that Josh Bynes and Daryl Smith are going to be the starters in the first game.
Eisenberg then tells that he believes Bernard Pierce is going to see more snaps this year since we have the talent deep in the position. He thinks we might see Ray Rice more in passing situations and Pierce more in running situations. However, he brings up the fact that Rice is the big play maker on offense, so he cannot have too many snaps taken away from him.
