On the Bright Side
Special Teams looks solid all around. It seems like the Ravens will be able to run the ball this year. The offensive line is still allowing too much pressure up the middle when Flacco was in the game. Let’s see Camparno with the starting unit, it seems like he gets separation and can catch the ball.
Come On Joe Flacco!
Back to the drawing board for #5, first J. Flacco should be heavily scrutinized this year for inaccuracy being that he did not opt to spend extended time in the offseason with his wide receivers. He did not look good at the beginning of the preseason game vs. Dallas. With that contract, Flacco needs to put in double overtime to work with his receivers to increase accuracy possibly or invest in corrective lenses.
Note to Gary Kubiak, Flacco throwing to Jacoby Jones in traffic does not usually bode well. I wonder what were the stats for Flacco to Jones (within 15 yards, contested passes) last year, not good.
It’s Not Just the Secondary, The Entire Defense Looks Suspect…………………
I think it’s hilarious that H.Ngata turned down the opportunity to restructure his contract. I think that E. Dumervil, T.Sizzle and H. Ngata continue to beat the Ravens Organization’s pockets opposed to the other team’s offensive lineman. For the second week in the row, the first team defense does not look dominant against the opposing team’s first offense. I think it’s time to give D.Tyson, P. McPhee, and T. Jernigan more time and place the starting defensive bums on the bench. The pass rush was pathetic in the first quarter. To this point in his career, M. Elam has been incredibly average to below average. D. Franks, thanks but no thanks……………………
