The Five Plays That Determined The Game: Ravens/Seahawks

Posted on 15 November 2011 by Glenn Clark

Following every Baltimore Ravens game this season, Ryan Chell and I will take to the airwaves Tuesdays on “The Reality Check” on AM1570 WNST.net with a segment known as “The Five Plays That Determined The Game.”

It’s a simple concept. We’ll select five plays from each game that determined the outcome. These five plays will best represent why the Ravens won or lost each game.

This will be our final analysis of the previous game before switching gears towards the next game on the schedule.

Here are the five plays that determined the Ravens’ 22-17 loss to the Seattle Seahawks at CenturyLink Field…

(NOTE: Not all pictures are of actual play.)

Glenn Clark’s Plays…

5. Golden Tate 24 yard catch from Tavaris Jackson on 3rd & 5 (4th quarter)

4. Marshawn Lynch 8 yard run, Ravens challenge of first down spot fails (4th quarter)

3. David Hawthorne intercepts Joe Flacco, returns to Baltimore 8 yard line, personal foul on Flacco gives Seattle ball on Baltimore 4 (3rd quarter)

2. David Reed fumbles kickoff return, recovered by Ben Obomanu (1st quarter)

1. David Reed fumbles kickoff return, recovered by Atari Bigby (2nd quarter)

Our Ravens-Seahawks Slaps To The Head

Our Ravens-Seahawks Slaps To The Head

Posted on 13 November 2011 by Glenn Clark

After Baltimore Ravens victories, Ryan Chell and I award players who made positive contributions with “Pats on the Ass” during the “Nasty Purple Postgame Show” on AM1570 WNST.net.

To just about everyone’s surprise, there were no Pats to be given following the Ravens’ game Sunday, as they fell 22-17 to the Seattle Seahawks at CenturyLink Field.

So instead of offering “Pats on the Ass”, Ryan and I instead offered “Slaps to the Head” postgame. A slap on the side of the head from a coach tends to come along with them saying something along the lines of “you’ve gotta do better than that.”

Same rules as there were with Pats. Two offensive players, two defensive players, and a wild card (Special Teams player, coach, or another Offensive or Defensive player). One player gets “two slaps” (or a slap on both sides of the head), it’s the opposite of a “Player of the Game” honor.” Ryan and I select five different players after each game.

Here are our five Ravens that have “gotta do better than that.”

Glenn Clark’s Slaps…

5. Ray Lewis

4. Anquan Boldin

3. Jarret Johnson

2. John Harbaugh

1. David Reed (Two slaps)

Flacco tells Nestor he’d want to boo Ravens too

Posted on 30 October 2011 by WNST Staff

Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco heard the boos on his home turf today. Everyone heard the boos. Nestor asked Flacco his reaction to the fans’ disapproval at the abysmal first-half play of the offense:

Ravens ride Flacco’s hot arm in 2nd half to pull out 30-27 win over Cardinals

Posted on 30 October 2011 by Drew Forrester

If the Ravens somehow work their way through the AFC in January and wind up in the Super Bowl, there’s little doubt that most people will point to the 2nd half of Sunday’s win over Arizona as the turning point.

Baltimore – trailing 24-6 at the intermission – was 30 minutes of bad football away from falling to the lowly Cardinals and dropping to 4-3 with a looming visit to Pittsburgh in seven days time.

And then Joe Flacco and Anquan Boldin went to work, the visitors folded like a cheap suit in the 3rd quarter, and the Ravens got a last second field goal from Billy Cundiff to pull off a 30-27 win.

It wasn’t pretty.

But it was way better than losing.

Flacco and the offense spent most of the first half in a state of confusion, as the offensive line turned in a putrid opening 30 minutes and a bunch of mistakes in every facet of the game helped the Cardinals to a shocking 24-3 lead.  The defense surrendered a long pass play to Larry Fitzgerald, Flacco fumbled the ball on his own 2 yard line and Patrick Peterson returned a punt 82 yards for a touchdown — all in the first half.  Three mistakes and an 18-point deficit.

But a funny thing happened on the way to what would have been a stunning home defeat.

The old Cardinals team showed up, the one that is now 1-6 on the season and headed nowhere fast.

And the Ravens offense came to life, thanks in part to the no-huddle scheme, a whopper of a 2nd half from Anquan Boldin and much better pass protection from an offensive line that was staggering in the first two quarters.

If ever Cam Cameron and Joe Flacco needed thirty minutes of redemption, it was on Sunday afternoon.

Cameron got in the act by making a subtle but important change to start the 3rd quarter.  He had Flacco use the short pass to eat up yards, with the two tight ends getting most of the work along with Boldin, who made several spectacular catches along the sideline.

Flacco finished the day 31-for-51 with 336 yards, but it was his 2nd half play that gave the fans reason to smile.  After going 12-for-23 in the opening half (98 yards), the 4th year quarterback piled up big 2nd half numbers, throwing for 238 yards (19-for-28) and using Boldin time after time as the Cardinals couldn’t find an answer for the Pro Bowl receiver.  Flacco also made good use of Dennis Pitta (career-high 6 receptions), Ed Dickson (6) and Torrey Smith (3), with Smith’s 25-yard collection in the final minute of the game putting Baltimore in game-winning field goal territory.

It was closer than most people expected, but 5-2 is still 5-2.

And it certainly sends Baltimore to Pittsburgh for next week’s showdown with the Steelers in a much better frame of mind.

The Jacksonville loss was hard enough to swallow.

A home defeat to the Cardinals would have officially ignited a stage of panic in these parts.

As it is, there are still plenty of concerns at the 7-game mark, most notably a horribly inconsistent Baltimore offensive line that has seemingly gotten worse over the last three weeks.

The special teams haven’t been very special.

And the defense, while ranked #1 in the league prior to Sunday’s game, has been somewhat susceptible against the run over the last three games.

It all adds up to a good Ravens team that still has people wondering…which is the REAL Ravens — the one that fell behind 24-6 in the first half on Sunday?  Or the one that pulled off a great win with a stunning 2nd half offensive outburst?

Our Ravens-Texans “Pats On The Ass”

Posted on 16 October 2011 by Glenn Clark

After every Baltimore Ravens victory, Ryan Chell and I take to the airwaves on “The Nasty Purple Postgame Show” on AM1570 WNST.net to offer “Pats on the Ass” to players who have done something to deserve the honor.

We give pats to two defensive players, two offensive players and one “Wild Card”-either another offensive or defensive player, a Special Teams player or a coach. We offer a “Pat on Both Cheeks” to someone who stands out, our version of a “Player of the Game.”

Here are our “Pats on the Ass” following the Ravens’ 29-14 victory over the Houston Texans at M&T Bank Stadium…
