I know everyone assumes that with Flacco’s contract, he needs to carry the team. But maybe the Ravens should take advantage of their backs.
It would be a shame if the Orioles don’t make the playoffs, because they will then waste one of the greatest offensive seasons in team history, and certainly one of those epic seasons.
I decided to go through the ludicrous exercise of trying to make a game-by-game projection of the Ravens schedule, and thus, what their record will be this year.
The NFL Network debuted its special on the Ravens Super Bowl run Monday night. Here are some of my takeaways.
It sure didn’t look like he did a very good when he was here, but as it turns out, MacPhail made some great moves.
I don’t mean sound cliche and say “to be the best, you have to beat the best.” But really, isn’t this what it is all about?
It was pretty telling what happened on Wednesday night. The Orioles desperately needed a win versus the Rays…. and Buck bypassed Jim Johnson.
We had a lot of texts and calls from people saying they didn’t understand why Buck sent Casilla on the steal in the 9th. I have no issue with it.
I am not looking for too much out of the new guys, Stokely and Clark. I know what they can do. I will be looking at the young receivers again to see if anyone can step up.
I have been pretty steadfast in my support of Jim Johnson. Earlier in the season, I said I would not change closers. Now, on the heels of back to back blown saves that he has had, I think it is time to try someone else.
The Orioles, in theory, have a chance to gain some ground in the standings in the next couple of weeks. 5 of their next 6 series are against teams with losing records.
Make no mistake, this is a huge loss for the Ravens. With Boldin gone, Pitta would be the guy to catch balls in traffic, over the middle and in the slot.
