It’s Panthers week for the Baltimore Ravens! This game has been circled on Steve Smith’s calender since he signed with Baltimore during the offseason. And while the main focus for Baltimore may be to get to 3-1 this year, it’s clear Steve Smith would love nothing more than to make the Panthers thoroughly regret the decision they made when they released the wide receiver back in March.
Ravens are looking to extend their winning streak to 3 games when they go up against Steve Smith’s former team in Baltimore on Sunday. And while the Steelers made quick work of the Panthers last week, Baltimore would be wise not to take their next opponent lightly.
The Ravens wideout has a history of being very forthright with his opinions which has sometimes caused friction with teammates.
We look at this game from a fantasy football perspective and consider the players from both sides that should be placed in the lineup or benched.
Don’t panic. KC and Chicago, 2 teams expected to be playoff contenders, had surprising home losses, and New England and New Orleans, both Super Bowl contenders, start 0-1.
Steve Smith will be making his debut in a Ravens uniform this Sunday afternoon; Scott asked the lantern how amped up is the veteran wide out. “He’s really juiced up to go against Adam Jones, especially in front of the hometown crowd for the first time. With these new NFL rules it really benefits the receiver. That’s advantage Steve Smith in my opinion in that department. That will be interesting and it will be physical, so If Adam ‘Pacman’ Jones gets a little to physical the yellow flag will come out of the back pocket.”
Brent Harris of Comcast Sportsnet joined Bob and Glenn on Sports Rehab to recap the Ravens win over the Redskins this past Saturday night.
The Ravens’ newly acquired Steve Smith Sr. showed Baltimore why they signed him with his play against the Redskins on Saturday night.
“He was very impressive against the Redskins. He’s just an intense guy. He brings that to practice every day,” said Brown. “I don’t think there’s any doubt that if he stays healthy this season he’ll make some plays and make the Ravens better.”
Steve Smith has played 13 NFL seasons, loves to talk about football and craves winning.
Joe Flacco’s final throw was a touchdown pass, providing a positive ending to an uneven performance by the Baltimore Ravens’ first-team offense.
I felt the Ravens lost a bit of their edge when Q was traded to SF and Pollard went to Tennessee. I thought the team needed a player especially on offense who’d fire everyone up an ” play like a Raven” I’m pretty sure 89 is that guy.
The Carolina Panthers cut the face of the franchise, Steve Smith, and let the only other three wide receivers on the roster that caught a pass last season leave as free agents. Tight end Greg Olsen is the only proven receiver returning from last season’s squad. Olsen should be Cam Newton’s favorite target this season.
