Overreaction or reality: Ravens OC Marty Mornhinweg should be fired

Overreaction or reality: Ravens OC Marty Mornhinweg should be fired

The Ravens are now 2-1 this season after their devastating 44-7 loss to the Jaguars. The biggest question after three games should be is Marty Mornhinweg doing enough to keep his job? In week one, the Ravens completely dominated the Bengals, which allowed Baltimore to sit back and run the ball. Remember, Joe Flacco only completed nine passes. Also, Cincinnati was without Adam Jones (Pacman), Shawn Williams and Vontaze Burfict. In week two, Baltimore’s defense dismantled the Browns offense, forcing five turnovers, for the second-straight week. The offense was a little bit more aggressive...

John Harbaugh, “It’s one loss, it doesn’t matter what the score ends up being”

John Harbaugh, “It’s one loss, it doesn’t matter what the score ends up being”

While every Ravens fan is currently sharpening their pitchforks from the blowout, John Harbaugh responded to the media in the postgame presser. "What defines a season is how you respond to the adversity that you face. That's in football, that's in life." pic.twitter.com/wNo1wFE0tC— Baltimore Ravens (@Ravens) September 24, 2017 He’s right. This doesn’t make the record anything else, but 2-1. It sure feels 2-10, but it’s only a single loss. Rather than bury themselves in frustration though, this team will need to focus, and quickly. A week from today, the Ravens return home to...

Three takeaways from the Ravens 44-7 loss to the Jaguars in week three

Three takeaways from the Ravens 44-7 loss to the Jaguars in week three

The Ravens first ever game in London was a complete disaster. The entire team looked unprepared. It was a horrific showing from Baltimore. Below are three takeaways from the Ravens 44 to 7 blowout loss to Jacksonville in week three: 1. The losses of Marshal Yanda and Brandon Williams were too much to overcome The Ravens offensive line looked absolutely atrocious. They were outmatched against this talented Jaguars front-seven. However, almost every member of the offensive line looked lost on the field. Austin Howard was beaten badly on several plays, while Jermaine Eluemunor nor Matt Skura...

POLL: Does somebody need to be fired?

POLL: Does somebody need to be fired?

The Baltimore Ravens just suffered their worst loss, maybe ever. The went to London with the best defense in the league, and came home with Blake Bortles and the Jacksonville Jaguars hanging 44 points on the Ravens. Keep in mind, this defense was best in the league, the past two weeks. They have eight interceptions on the year, and two fumble recoveries. But after a game like this, does something need to change? Does there need to be a personnel change?

Week three Ravens-Jaguars game recap, highlights, final takeaways and more

The Ravens first ever game in London is finally here. Below is a quick recap of Baltimore’s week three matchup against the Jaguars: First Half: The Jaguars opening kick sailed out of bounds, which gave Baltimore great field position to start the game. The Ravens started on their own 40-yard line. Mike Wallace takes the end-around for a five-yard gain. On second-down, Joe Flacco’s pass is incomplete. On third-down, Flacco is sacked by Dante Fowler Jr, resulting in a Ravens punt. A short punt by Sam Koch and Jacksonville will start on their own 37-yard line. On second-down, Blake Bortles...

Ravens vs. Jaguars: 1 Winner, 45 Losers

Ravens vs. Jaguars: 1 Winner, 45 Losers

I would have much rather stayed in bed, than watched this game. It looked like 45 players on the team would have agreed. Alex Collins — The only spark I saw on the offense. The practice squad to promoted tailback fought tooth & nail to gain yards for the Ravens. Losers: As I always say, every player has a bad game. From Brady, Marino, Montana, Rice and every other great in the Hall of Fame, they have bad games. This is to only comment about their performance, and should be understood as such. Literally Every Raven. They took tours around London. They were out checking out cars and hanging...

Halftime report: Injury absences loom large for Baltimore

Halftime report: Injury absences loom large for Baltimore

“Next man up” is one of the most overused cliches that you’ll hear in sports, especially football. For the Baltimore Ravens who have had their share of injury issues over the past few seasons, it is one that has been echoed endlessly by the top brass around their building. Against Jacksonville, the mantra hasn’t held up as the injuries to right guard Marshal Yanda and nose tackle Brandon Williams have reared their ugly head. The Ravens offense hasn’t been able to get anything going on the ground, or the air, and a big part of that has been an inability to clear holes on the...

A Ravens defensive player winning MVP? DeMarcus Ware believes it’s going to happen

The MVP award. The greatest regular season award that a player can earn. While every player in the league has a chance, the disadvantages of playing defense immediately place you behind the pack. While most have already roped in a quarterback as their MVP, future Hall of Fame linebacker DeMarcus Ware believes the Baltimore Ravens have an early 2017 MVP candidate on their roster: Terrell Suggs. 1986: The last time a defensive player won MVP.@DeMarcusWare thinks that will change this year.His pick for MVP is... pic.twitter.com/nQrtRqBhUU— NFL (@NFL) September 23, 2017 In the past...

Ravens TE Benjamin Watson could have another breakout performance in week 3

Ravens TE Benjamin Watson could have another breakout performance in week 3

Ravens tight end Benjamin Watson had a breakout game in week two against the Browns. He finished with eight catches for 91 yards. Watson put on a clinic in week two. It was hard to predict what kind of production Watson would give the Ravens this season as he tore his achilles during the 2016 preseason. After missing the entire 2016 season, he now looks poised for a big year in 2017. Although Watson did not have a single catch in week one, he bounced back in a big way in week two. Watson was able to break tackles and pick up several first-downs for Baltimore. Now onto Baltimore’s week...

Ravens vs. Jaguars: 3 defensive keys to victory

Two weeks in, and this defense looks unstoppable. They’ve intercepted eight passes, and forced two fumbles. Every time they’ve been called upon, they’ve answered. With the Ravens offense dealing with a strong Jaguars defense, Baltimore must respond with their own defensive prowess. Stack the box Nobody is scared of Blake Bortles and his passing; everybody is nervous about Leonard Fournette’s skill in the running game though. With Brandon Williams out, the run game has a hole in the dead center. It’s time for Michael Pierce, Brent Urban and five other defensive linemen on the...

PFF: Joe Flacco’s overall grade among NFL’s best, but he’s struggling against pressure

Pro Football Focus released its QB overview for the season thus far. Here’s how Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco stacked up. Joe Flacco is off to a solid start in 2017 pic.twitter.com/W9535veRCP— Pro Football Focus (@PFF) September 23, 2017 What immediately jumped out to me upon looking at this chart was the 25.8 passer rating versus pressure, the second worst in the NFL (the only quarterback with a worse rating is Jacoby Brissett). Flacco has never been great under duress, its been well documented that he isn’t the most athletic quarterback. He tends to throw off his back foot a...
