The Baltimore Ravens started training camp ahead of all the other NFL teams. The start of the 2018 season has a lot going on. This is Ozzie Newsome’s last year as general manager and a new draft class gives Ravens fans a lot to look forward to.
The Ravens had one of it’s best drafts this year by filling the needed skill set position. With the new addition of wide receivers Micheal Crabtree and Willie Snead, quarterback Joe Flacco now has some weapons that can go after the ball. Hopefully the coordinators will make the playbook better for Flacco and company.
It was long odds for Denver to pull off a win: on the road, rainy, new Offensive Coordinator, a quarterback in his third start and first in 11 months. Sadly, it may have been his last.
We’d been told that the new OC would tailor a game plan for the new guy. That would equate to being in the shotgun, lots of passes and some run pass option since the dude can run, drop backs limited to three steps.
What we saw instead was… I don’t know what. The exact opposite, only worse. Ten passes were called even though he needs, needed, every chance he could get. With only three days of practice throwing to the ones since August, you’d think getting the timing down would be a priority. It wasn’t. Plus, there was a right tackle in his second start at that position, against Khalil Mack. There was no run, didn’t even crack 60 yards total.
Today the NFL announced that Oakland Raider Wide Receiver Michael Crabtree and Denver Bronco Cornerback Aqib Talib would be suspended for two games without pay as a result of the fight that took place on Sunday.
Michael Crabtree and Aqib Talib are being suspended two games each for unsportsmanlike conduct and unnecessary roughness.
