  1. I do think there was a difference. Rice struck his wife when he thought no one was looking and over an argument. Mixon hit the lady after she allegedly called him a racist name and hit him first. What both men did was horrible, just saying there was a difference. I still don't understand how the woman who hit Mixon wasn't charged with assault.
  2. I read an article where they were describing the Ravens draft room. For the Ravens 2nd pick in the 3rd round they were deciding between a WR and Williams. The article states that even the Ravens OC said that the Ravens needed to draft Williams because he was better value then the WR. So maybe the Ravens were considering Godwin in round 3. http://www.baltimoreravens.com/news/article-1/Byrne-Identity-Inside-The-Ravens-Draft-Room/15f87b61-c72b-4bcc-9047-8ebd12e7bc48 I am actually one of the few believers in Perriman. I say that because last year, he disappeared in games or maybe had 11 or 2 catches, but he still had 500 yards receiving. I just think we need to throw the ball deep to him a little more then last year so he can show he play making skills. On a couple of those drag routes when he caught the ball in space, no one could catch him.
  3. The Reuben Foster pick looks good on paper, but he has a diluted test so he is automatically now enrolled in the NFL substance abuse thingy, and he may need shoulder surgery because he never completed his check up at the combine. I don't think its wise to get a 1st round pick that may get suspended for drugs, or may need surgery this late before the season starts. He may barely play his first year. I know Tim Williams, our 3rd round pick, has similar issues, but I would rather a 3rd rounder with 1st round talent have these issues, then our 1st round pick. I believe we had a solid draft. Humphery looks like he can play right away. Williams will surely play in pass rush situations. The OLB from Houston looks super athletic, Wormley will contribute and be depth on the DL, and I believe one of the OL we drafted will contribute this year. I believe not drafting a C means the Ravens may go get Mangold. I also believe the Ravens will pick up another WR or 2 after teams release some players now that the draft is over.
  4. I think Humphrey is a solid pick. He comes from a football family with his Dad playing in the NFL. He was a track star and a 5-star recruit out of Alabama. Started since a RS-Freshman and started every game he played and was an All American his RS-Soph year. I write that to say he is a high level athlete who produced at a high level and lived up to the hype at Bama. There are questions about him playing the deep ball, but we do have arguably the best Safety tandem in the NFL on paper, so that should assist with preventing the deep ball as well.
  5. So MSJ finishes third in the Baltimore Sun's Area rankings in Basketball, but finishes #1 in the state in the USA today . I do find it hard to rank a team above MSJ in the area considering they won the MIAA, BCL and runner-up in the Alhambra tourney to a (in some polls) nationally ranked Gonzaga team. I know Perry Hall and Patterson had great years, I just think the level of competition MSJ played along with the number of games played and won, should of made them the #1 choice in the Sun poll as well. Not to mention MSJ beat 8 teams in the top 25 of the USA today MD stat rankings poll. For some reason my computer is not allowing me to post the link to the USA today poll, smh.
  6. But remember "I hire the best people, the very best, and they will get the job done, much, much better then anyone will ever expect. I hire the best people, look at my company, the best people" LOL I am really starting to believe Putin has some serious inside info, or juicy gossip on Trump. With all that is going on, I really can no longer say I don't watch reality TV shows. This stuff gets better every week.
  7. The Steelers run a different run scheme then the Eagles, and I do believe we will do better against the run this week, then last week.
  8. I might of been typing slower then my brain was moving. I meant to say that the Eagles run a zone scheme, like Zubiak runs one, not the same obviously because Zubiak has a lot of offset FB, more so then I formation or single back, with his zone scheme. Castillo, doesn't run a zone scheme, he is the O-line coach. The OC determines the scheme of blocking for the O-line and the O-line coach, coaches accordingly, though I do believe Castillo specialty is ZBS. With that said, the Ravens use a lot of ZBS, but not exclusively. I will say it is sometimes hard to know what scheme they are running because they hardly run the ball, smh. If you remember the TD run from Dixon, the Ravens faked power right and tossed it left (Yanda pulled, which made the LB go with him), which was a great scheme and play call. Here is basic simple hint, (though not 100% true) if a lineman pulls, its power (or counter), if no one pulls its either ZBS or an iso play. Of course there is much more to it, but that is just something basic to help you differentiate. I will say this, there was a new rule put in place wither this year or last year, that doesn't allow a backside lineman to cut a defender 2 blockers over, or cut a lineman backside in general (something like that) really takes away from the ZBS and the ability for the RB to have large cut back lanes.
  9. A couple thoughts of mine for this game. Last game was frustrating to watch because we were getting 3-8 yards running the ball on first down, then would pass it 2nd and third down. I am a believer if you get more then 3 yards on the ground on first down, you should run the ball the majority of the time on 2nd down, with some play action mixed in, to avoid 3rd and long. Regarding the Ravens defense being exposed by the Eagles O with them running the ball, I think that is hog wash. The Eagles run the zone scheme that Kubiak runs. The Steelers do not run the zone scheme nearly at all. Zone is difficult because there is no true hole the RB is supposed to hit as lineman just flow with the play allowing the RB to see whatever creases come about. Bell is a patient runner, with good quickness, but not breakaway speed, so we just have to maintain gap integrity and we should be ok. I believe we will do a lot of doubling of Brown with under - over top coverage on him and make the other play makers beat us. I think if Green for the Steelers does not play that is a big plus for us because it would be difficult to match up with Green and Bell out of the backfield. With that said, am looking forward to a hard hitting Christmas match-up.
  10. If you need a streaming website, Google firstrowsports or First Row Sports. Streams pretty much all sporting events, just have to find the best feed. I have used this site several times, and my brother who is a Steelers fan and lives in Bmore, uses it for Steeler games that are not on TV here in the local market.
  11. So if they are not scholarships, isn't this extra benefits a kid is receiving. Wouldn't that be an NCAA violation? To me this is the same thing as paying a high school athlete. Whats the difference between accepting basketball Jersey's, in which Lebron did that made him NCAA ineligible, versus a kid getting payments to attend a better school, because that school does not give scholarships.
  12. GA you just said in your previous post that Gilman doesn't offer any scholarships.
  13. GA - I have never said it on this board, but...... I will just say I know some people who were athletes at your high school alum, that did not have to pay tuition.
  14. Harbaugh has quite a few blowouts in his tenure. I remember Joe throwing for 5tds in the first half or something like that against the Bucs a couple years ago as well as blowing out the Panthers a couple years ago. I believe we also put 55 on the board against the Raiders as well.
  15. Good Point RavensGrrl. We could always decline the penalty if it was offsetting penalties, so the game was going to end either way, as long as we were able to literally, hold on, until time ran out.
