Bovada keeps Ravens’ regular season win total at 8.5

Posted on 28 July 2014 by WNST Staff

Courtesy of Bovada, (www.Bovada.lv, Twitter: @BovadaLV). If you have any questions or need an explanation of the numbers to the right of the win totals, please let me know.

“NFL win totals continues to take more money than any other future market we have up right now for the NFL and a few teams are really standing out as popular bets. The Chicago Bears over 8.5 has taken over 95% of the money but we are comfortable holding the number at 8.5, especially in a pretty competitive division. The Saints and Patriots are seeing the same type of action forcing each of their win totals to move up half a win. The two teams who have caught my eye taking quite a bit of under money is the Dallas Cowboys dropping from 8 to 7.5 wins and the Carolina Panthers with 80% of the public expecting them to regress from their surprising year in 2013.”

Glenn’s Drew’s Morning Dish: Rice issue complicated, dropping celebration shouldn’t be

Glenn’s Drew’s Morning Dish: Rice issue complicated, dropping celebration shouldn’t be

Posted on 28 July 2014 by Glenn Clark

As you’ve probably already heard, I’m in for Drew Forrester on “The D&L Window Tinting Morning Reaction” all this week on AM1570 WNST.net. Drew is in Ocean City-presumably doing enough golfing for him, myself, Luke Jones and the entire European Tour.

I have no idea if Drew is planning on writing daily posts himself this week, but I’m going to try to do my best to write my own. Drew’s Morning Dish is brought to you by Koons Baltimore Ford. Glenn’s Drew’s Morning Dish can be brought to you by Koons Baltimore Ford…unless of course they think I’m a big dummy and don’t want to put their name on it.

This will be about the most simple opinion I will have ever shared on-air or online. Sometimes I say things that people argue with or yell about, but I can’t fathom there being much in the way of dissent here.

The issue surrounding Baltimore Ravens RB Ray Rice is complicated, to say the least. I have shared a number of opinions about the topic over the course of the last few days and have no doubt that those topics will re-appear throughout the week and throughout the rest of Rice’s tenure in Charm City. I’m on the record about thinking the punishment was too light and that the NFL has a major “perception issue” at best when it comes to women, while the team has failed woefully to address the issue of domestic violence.

But Ray Rice is going to be a Baltimore Raven moving forward. Barring injury, he’ll return to the field Week 3 and will look to help the Ravens make a push towards winning the AFC North again. Before that, he’ll be on the field for preseason games (probably three of them) and will make his first major public appearance Monday night when the team holds a public Training Camp practice at M&T Bank Stadium.

There are a lot of things Ray Rice should do moving forward in his NFL career. He should be humble and appreciative of whatever amount of support fans choose to give him. He should work hard in his marriage and personal relationships. He should stay out of trouble. He should be willing to answer questions openly and honestly when he addresses the media for the first time Thursday in Owings Mills (I say “first time” because I am expecting he will actually answer questions this time). He should attempt to work hard in his professional career-playing football-and re-stock an inventory of appreciation among those who will likely be uncomfortable watching him play.

There’s one thing in particular he absolutely should not do-probably ever again.

Until his trip to Atlantic City, perhaps this celebration was the single most synonymous image of the three time Pro Bowler. Rice’s touchdown celebration has been completely sensical. Given his 5’7″ frame, the former second round pick has been doubted throughout his career, with skeptics wondering whether a player could succeed at a high level in the league at that size.

The celebration-which involved Rice flexing his ample biceps (or sometimes pointing at them)-was his way of saying his toughness and strength more than made up for what he lacked in size.

Rice’s touchdown celebration has been re-enacted by many in Charm City who have looked up to Rice. If you have attended a game at any level-from Pop Warner to college-in this area over the past few years, you have undoubtedly seen a young football player impersonating their idol.

But as the former All-Pro returns to the field after being the first of five Ravens to be arrested in the offseason, it’s time for the celebration to go.

There’s multiple reasons why Rice should abandon the muscle flexing. The most obvious is the visual created by the celebration. While those in Baltimore might recognize the flex as a celebration he’s used for his entire career, those around the country will immediately see a connotation between the flex and the incident with his wife. At best, it’s not worth the headache for Rice to have to try to defend himself. More realistically, it would represent an alarming lack of awareness.

Additionally, struggling Ravens fans don’t deserve to have to defend it. The player and team have already put fans in an awkward position for multiple reasons. Undoubtedly, Ravens fans will be asked “how does it feel do root for a wife beater” for the rest of Rice’s tenure in Purple and Black. The situation doesn’t need to be worsened every time the running back does something significant on a football field.

Someone in this area will inevitably make some sort of “PC Police” claim in response. I won’t bother to try to explain to someone that doesn’t understand why it isn’t a good idea for someone who was arrested for domestic violence to publicly flex his muscles as a form of celebration. If you don’t get it, you won’t get it. But consider that even if you cling to the rights of speech, perhaps dropping the celebration would simply be the best way for Rice to show humility at this point.

As a player, Rice shouldn’t treat it as something someone is taking away from him, he should instead treat it as an opportunity to show how much he’s grown as a man from the lowest moment of his life.

When he made his statement in Owings Mills weeks ago, Rice made it clear he wanted to try to make things return to normal as quickly as possible. You hope he understands that even a gesture like this wouldn’t POSSIBLY get him there.

But it would go a long way in starting the process.

Ravens remain short at cornerback position on Sunday

Posted on 27 July 2014 by Luke Jones

OWINGS MILLS, Md. — The cornerback position remained in flux on Sunday afternoon as the Ravens practiced without Lardarius Webb for the second straight day and Chykie Brown was also sidelined.

Webb has been dealing with minor back spasms since Friday while Brown sat out with a tweaked hamstring, according to head coach John Harbaugh. Both players walked out to the field to observe practice, a typical sign of neither injury being serious. With Webb and Brown both sidelined, third-year cornerback Asa Jackson took the first-team reps opposite Jimmy Smith in the secondary.

The Ravens added a cornerback to the practice equation as veteran Dominique Franks finally passed his conditioning test and was activated from the non-football injury list on Sunday. Signed after last month’s mandatory minicamp, Franks was tested early and often working on the second-string defense and held up reasonably well.

“He didn’t jump out in a negative way, so that’s positive for a corner,” Harbaugh said following practice. “And we’re happy to get him out there, because we needed the legs out there, and he’s a talented guy. It should be fun to watch him on tape tonight.”

Harbaugh said that offensive lineman Will Rackley has “a little ding,” which is code for concussion-related symptoms in the head coach’s words. The Ravens will proceed with caution until the former Jacksonville Jaguars lineman is cleared.

A number of key players were given Sunday off as wide receivers Steve Smith and Torrey Smith, linebacker Daryl Smith, defensive end Chris Canty, and tight end Owen Daniels did not practice but watched from the sideline. Harbaugh has regularly given veteran players days off over the course of training camp but has steered away from a set “30-and-over club” over the last two summers after implementing that during his first several seasons in Baltimore.

“We had some veteran guys sit down today; that was by my design,” Harbaugh said. “I pulled those guys back [and] felt like they would benefit from it.”

Running back Bernard Pierce was a full participant on Sunday after leaving the field early due to being sick during Saturday’s practice.

Defensive tackle Terrence Cody (active physically unable to perform list – hip surgery) and offensive lineman Parker Graham were once again absent on Sunday.

Early observations from 2014 Ravens training camp

Early observations from 2014 Ravens training camp

Posted on 27 July 2014 by Luke Jones

With 2014 training camp officially underway and the Ravens attempting to bounce back from their first non-playoff season of the John Harbaugh era, there are a number of early (too early?) takeaways from the practice field in Owings Mills.

1. Steve Smith has looked like an elite player.

It’s fair to express doubts over a 35-year-old wide receiver whose yards per catch average has dropped in three consecutive years, but Smith has been as good as advertised going back to organized team activities in the spring, catching everything in sight and regularly beating cornerbacks during practices. On Saturday, he made an excellent catch on a deep ball defended by Chykie Brown and later made an impressive adjustment on a pass thrown behind him on a slant pattern. Of course, it’s important not to get carried away with how anyone performs in July, but if Smith can be that reliable target to help move the chains and provide a safety net for quarterback Joe Flacco, the investment in the 14th-year receiver will be well worth it.

2. The No. 3 cornerback for the 2014 Ravens may not yet be on the roster.

The organization spent plenty of time this offseason talking up the potential of Brown and Asa Jackson, but it’s difficult to find anyone on the field in which defensive coordinator Dean Pees would have confidence using in the nickel package along with Jimmy Smith and Lardarius Webb. Brown has bit on play-action fakes and has struggled to find the ball when he is in position while Jackson — who is an inside defender in the nickel package — has also been beaten deep on a couple occasions. To make matters worse, Dominique Franks still hasn’t passed his conditioning test after fellow veteran newcomer Aaron Ross tore his Achilles tendon taking the same test. The Ravens would prefer to use Webb inside in the nickel, but there have been no signs of anyone currently on the roster being capable of handling duties as the third cornerback.

3. Left guard Kelechi Osemele is moving well and is the biggest key for the offensive line.

The third-year lineman has moved well early in camp and will be the key in determining how effective the interior offensive line can be in 2014 after it was undersized and ineffective last season. It’s still too early to gauge whether his surgically-repaired back will be in issue, but Osemele delivered an impressive block 10 yards downfield that sent safety Darian Stewart to the ground on Saturday afternoon, a telling example of the improved mobility he simply didn’t have early last year. If the Ravens can be strong inside with Osemele and Pro Bowl right guard Marshal Yanda flanking new center Jeremy Zuttah, it will alleviate much of the pressure on Rick Wagner or whoever mans the right tackle position.

4. Veteran newcomer Darian Stewart has impressed and is the early favorite to start at free safety.

His unfortunate encounter with Osemele aside, Stewart has displayed good athleticism at the safety position and looks to be the favorite to line up next to Matt Elam in the starting defense. The former St. Louis Rams safety is versatile with the ability to line up closer to the line of scrimmage or to play the more traditional free position, and Pees has said on a number of occasions that he’s looking to mirror his safeties more than just having a traditional strong and free one. Rookie Terrence Brooks will need to make significant strides between now and the start of the season as he appears to be thinking too much when lined up on the field and has worked primarily with the third-string defense to this early point. Secondary coach Steve Spagnuolo is familiar with Stewart going back to their days in St. Louis, so the Ravens hope they’ve found another value signing like they did with Corey Graham a couple years ago.

5. New offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak loves to move his skill players around in formations.

The Ravens are sure to experience growing pains implementing their new offensive system, but Kubiak has experimented plenty with his skill players to find strengths and weakness as well as potentially exploit vulnerabilities in a defense in a given matchup. His creative use of tight ends is a well-documented characteristic of his West Coast system, but it will be fun to watch how he uses fullback Kyle Juszczyk and big wide receiver Marlon Brown in addition to Dennis Pitta and Owen Daniels this season. Ultimately, offensive success in the NFL comes down to winning 1-on-1 matchups no matter how clever your schemes might be, but pre-snap movement has been a regular feature of what we’ve seen so far in Owings Mills.

6. Linebacker Courtney Upshaw looks too heavy for the third straight preseason.

Coach John Harbaugh was more complimentary of Upshaw’s conditioning in the spring, but the third-year linebacker looks bigger at the start of training camp than he did during OTAs, continuing a theme of the 2012 second-round pick not taking the best care of his body. In fairness to Upshaw, he hasn’t noticeably labored during his first few practices, but temperatures have also been favorable thus far. He has been solid in his first couple seasons and has flashed potential to be better than that, but it’s just difficult to project a player to improve when he spends too much time playing catchup with his weight every summer. The early expectation is that Upshaw will once again split time with Elvis Dumervil at the strongside outside linebacker position.

7. Rookie defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan has a rare combination of strength and quickness that’s fun to watch.

More attention has been paid to first-round linebacker C.J. Mosley, but Jernigan is becoming an early favorite of Pees as he’s been very active and has shown plenty of power in the trenches early in camp. Brandon Williams is the favorite to line up as the starting nose tackle, but there’s no reason Jernigan won’t be a regular member in the rotation, and his play could be a deciding factor in how the Ravens handle the final year of Haloti Ngata’s contract after the season. Pees quipped on Saturday that Jernigan doesn’t always follow his assignment, but he’ll make a big play anyway, which is pretty high praise for a rookie defensive lineman just a few days into his first training camp.

Jimmy Smith mum on legal incident, insists it won’t be distraction

Posted on 25 July 2014 by Luke Jones

OWINGS MILLS, Md. — Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith addressed the media on Friday for the first time since his July 12 arrest, but didn’t offer specifics on what resulted in him receiving a failure to obey a lawful order by a police officer citation.

Smith became the fifth Ravens player to be arrested this offseason when he was charged for misdemeanor disorderly conduct while at the Greene Turtle in Towson. Police have said Smith became argumentative while helping a woman in the bathroom and would not obey orders to leave her alone when medical personnel arrived to treat her.

“The incident that occurred is still a legal matter, so I’m not able to discuss that right now,” Smith said in an opening statement at the podium on Friday afternoon. “I’ll gladly talk about football. But, when it’s handled, I will talk about [the incident] and give you my side of the story.”

A court date is pending, but Smith insisted that the legal matter will not be a distraction “in the least” as he prepares for his fourth season in Baltimore.

Webb leaves practice, Rackley absent

Cornerback Lardarius Webb left the field midway through Friday’s practice and didn’t return even though head coach John Harbaugh did not express concern at the end of the workout.

“I don’t have an update on that,” Harbaugh said. “[It was] nothing serious.”

Webb jogged off the field unassisted and was apparently dealing with minor back spasms, according to The Sun. He was replaced in the starting defense by fourth-year cornerback Chykie Brown.

Veteran cornerback Dominique Franks remained on the non-football injury list and didn’t practice on Friday, an indication that he has yet to pass his conditioning test. Offensive lineman Will Rackley (undisclosed) was also absent from the practice field.

Defensive tackle Terrence Cody (hip surgery) remained on the active physically unable to perform list.

The Ravens will conduct their first full-contact practice of the summer on Saturday afternoon with defensive coordinator Dean Pees, offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak, and special teams coordinator Jerry Rosburg scheduled to address reporters following the workout.

Ravens sign suspended safety Will Hill to 90-man roster

Ravens sign suspended safety Will Hill to 90-man roster

Posted on 25 July 2014 by Luke Jones

OWINGS MILLS, Md. — Turning a blind eye toward perception less than 24 hours after the announcement of the Ray Rice suspension, the Ravens signed former New York Giants safety Will Hill to their 90-man roster on Friday.

The 24-year-old will serve a six-game suspension for violating the NFL’s substance-abuse policy to begin the 2014 season. Hill was also suspended for violating the same policy in 2012 for reported marijuana use and was suspended for a violation of the league’s performance-enhancing drug policy for alleged Adderall use last year.

The Giants waived Hill in early June after the news of his latest suspension, which he blamed on second-hand marijuana smoke. He would not be eligible to play for the Ravens until Week 7, but Hill can take part in training camp and preseason games.

“[He’s] a good football player,” coach John Harbaugh said. “I had a chance to get to know him; I like where his head is at this time, right now, and we’ll see how he does.”

An undrafted free agent out of the University of Florida in 2011, Hill started 10 games for the Giants last season and was the third-highest ranked safety in the NFL in Pro Football Focus’ grading system. He collected 77 tackles, two interceptions, two forced fumbles, and two pass breakups in 12 games overall. Hill also appeared in 12 games in 2012, collecting 38 tackles, a forced fumble, and a pass breakup.

Hill’s signing could signal the Ravens’ concern at the free safety position with veteran newcomer Darian Stewart currently competing with 2014 third-round pick Terrence Brooks and veteran special-teams standout Jeromy Miles for the starting job. The troubled safety’s talent is apparent, but three suspensions in such a brief period of time and other off-field issues going back to his college days signal a clear lack of maturity and dedication.

After placing injured cornerback Aaron Ross on injured reserve Thursday, the Ravens had an open spot on their 90-man preseason roster.

Goodell says Rice’s conduct “unquestionably inconsistent” with league policies

Posted on 24 July 2014 by WNST Staff

PRESS RELEASE

COMMISSIONER ROGER GOODELL notified Baltimore Ravens running back RAY RICE today that he will be suspended without pay for the first two 2014 regular season games and fined an additional game check for conduct detrimental to the NFL in violation of the league’s Personal Conduct Policy for his February arrest.

In May, Rice resolved the charges by entering into a pretrial intervention program. Under this program, he will not be prosecuted and is not required to serve jail time or pay any fine. After one year, the charges will be expunged and will not be part of Rice’s record.

Following this agreement, Goodell met with Rice and his wife. Despite the court’s decision not to impose criminal punishment, the Commissioner determined, as he advised Rice, that the conduct was incompatible with NFL policies and warranted disciplinary action.

In a letter to Rice, Commissioner Goodell stated:

“As you acknowledged during our meeting, your conduct was unquestionably inconsistent with league polices and the standard of behavior required of everyone who is part of the NFL. The league is an entity that depends on integrity and in the confidence of the public and we simply cannot tolerate conduct that endangers others or reflects negatively on our game. This is particularly true with respect to domestic violence and other forms of violence against women.

“You will be expected to continue to take advantage of the counseling and other professional services you identified during our meeting. As you noted, this additional assistance has been of significant benefit to you and your wife, and it should remain a part of your practice as appropriate.

“I believe that you are sincere in your desire to learn from this matter and move forward toward a healthy relationship and successful career. I am now focused on your actions and expect you to demonstrate by those actions that you are prepared to fulfill those expectations.”

Rice’s suspension will begin on August 30. He will be eligible for reinstatement on Monday, September 12 following the Ravens’ game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Rice may participate in all aspects of training camp and preseason games.

Rice may appeal this decision within three days.
