Thursday Morning’s Crabs and Beer

Posted on 21 January 2010 by Glenn Clark

Happy Thursday!

It’s a happy Thursday for me because the blog site Mister Irrelevant found this picture of Cal Ripken and Eddie Murray from the SI Vault….

murrayripken

Greatest picture ever? Greatest picture ever.

Let’s see what everyone has to say…..

1. Pro Football Talk/NBC Sports’ Mike Florio says Ravens QB Coach Hue Jackson interviewing for Offensive Coordinator job in Oakland

Right.

Jim Zorn once interviewed for the OC job with the Redskins, too.

I’m not trying to say that I know the Raiders are seecretly interviewing other candidates for Tom Cable’s job-but you have to earn the benefit of the doubt to get it.

The word is now that Jim Fassel DIDN’T interview in Oakland-which makes it seem more likely that maybe Al Davis ISN’T interviewing head coaching candidates.

But I don’t trust that to be the case.

The Ravens could have blocked Hue Jackson from interviewing with the Silver & Black, but since this would be a promotion; Steve Bisciotti and John Harbaugh did the right thing to let him interview. The Raiders clearly see Jackson as having the chance to improve JaMarcus Russell in the same way he worked wonders with Carson Palmer and Joe Flacco.

I still think Jackson is in a better place in Baltimore than he would be with EITHER job in Oakland, but that’s just me.

2. The Sun’s Edward Lee says Parmele ‘hopes’ to be in mix for KR job next season

And of course, he should be.

He shouldn’t be GIVEN the job-there should absolutely be a competition for the gig, involving him and Lardarius Webb-and anyone else they bring in this offseason who has an appropriate resume.

Unless your name is Devin Hester or Joshua Cribbs-you should probably be competing for a KR job EVERY year. If Lardarius Webb is going to be a starting CB for this team (which he might well be), or Cam Cameron is going to try to figure out a way to get him the ball offensively (which there are no plans for as of now-but certainly it would make sense); maybe Parmele would be a better option-as he could focus on the job primarily.

Of course, Cribbs is also likely to be available this offseason-and showed himself to be a capable offensive player at times as well.

Maybe?

3. Carroll County Times’ Aaron Wilson says Ravens hope to bring back both Dwan Edwards, Justin Bannan next season

I hope they do too, but I don’t see it. Both guys earned the right to make real money on their next deal, and are just waiting for someone to give it to them. Maybe the CBA trouble will help to make it difficult for them to find work elsewhere in the NFL-but I would imagine someone will be willing to give one (or both) of these guys big bucks.

Remember, Marques Douglas never had trouble finding work. Neither did Tony Weaver. Or Abrayo Franklin. And the Ravens have more linemen behind this group. There’s a reason why they kept Kelly Talavou and Brandon McKinney coming out of Training Camp last season-despite the fact that they didn’t need D-Linemen at the time.

They knew what was coming.

4. WGRZ (Buffalo)’s Aaron Saykin says Brian Billick couldn’t understand why Bills GM Buddy Nix didn’t reach out to him about coaching vacancy

And neither do I.

I really never got the idea that Brian particularly wanted the job, but I can understand why he would want the phone call/interview/etc. Buffalo likely would never have had the economic backbone to even make it interesting for Coach Billick, who is still getting $4 million from the Baltimore Ravens over each of the next two seasons provided he doesn’t end up employed elsewhere.

The point for Brian is that in 2 years, he’d like to be coming off a span where he was a hot name in the coaching world. Where teams had shown interest in him, and he had been asked to be a part of the hiring process, even if he didn’t end up taking any coaching jobs.

There was no reason for the Bills NOT to talk to Coach Billick. If he determined it wasn’t the right fit for him (which I’m guessing he would have), it couldn’t possibly have hurt to have discussed where the franchise was heading with a Super Bowl winner.

5. WNST.net’s Drew Forrester says Josh Brown’s 14 not nearly enough as Towson blown out by Northeastern

Look, I wasn’t there-so I don’t want to say the wrong thing here, but this looks like maybe one team started to give up in the 2nd half at Towson Center last night.

Pat Kennedy has his work cut out for him. Fans who went to the Towson Center for the first time last night could not possibly have left feeling good about the product they paid to see. Losing games to good teams on the road is one thing-getting blown out at home is another.

6. The Diamondback’s Aaron Kraut says rebounding, experience starting to set Terps apart from others in ACC

Agreed, but they still have problems has well. Their lack of pure outside shooting hurts them, no matter how capable they are in other areas.

And things won’t be easy for Maryland. The NC State team they’re playing Saturday night that everyone thought they’d beat in a walk just took it to a Top 10 Duke team last night. They play North Carolina on Super Bowl Sunday-and the Heels are going to be close to desperation mode, after losing a 3rd straight ACC contest to Wake Forest last night.

There are wins to be had in this conference this season-but the Terrapins have to go get them. Nothing will come easy.

7. UMBC Official Site previews Retrievers’ contest with New Hampshire tonight at RAC Arena (pdf)

Here’s my conundrum. I love Randy Monroe and his guys, but the following people are from the great state of New Hampshire….

mandy

silverman

….so maybe I’m rooting for the Wildcats?

8. Loyola Official Site previews tonight’s trip to Siena

Again, I’m not trying to offend Jimmy Patsos or anyone on his staff-but it appears likely that the Greyhounds will fall to 2-7 in MAAC play tonight.

That’s not good enough. Not for a coach who has recruited all of the players on the team.

This isn’t a “Jimmy Patsos has to go” statement-not in the least bit. But this IS a statement that Jimmy Patsos needs to be better. Losing tonight at Siena is really no big deal-as the Saints are REALLY good. But the Hounds have to find wins. They just have to win games. They can’t be 2-7 in the MAAC.

It just isn’t good enough.

9. Inside Lacrosse’s Danielle Bernstein says IL analysts think Maryland, Hopkins could end up in Final Four

And Dave Cottle might NEED to get back to the Final Four.

Maryland started practice on Monday-and they’ll be back inside Byrd Stadium (or Capital One Field at Byrd Stadium if you will) this season, so the “no home field” excuse won’t be in play any longer.

There’s only 2-3 programs in the country that should be able to compete with the University of Maryland when it comes to lacrosse. Syracuse has a talent base and financial backing, as does Virginia. Johns Hopkins has a passionate fanbase and a program that builds itself around lacrosse. Same can be said for Princeton-but neither the Jays not the Tigers have the financial backing that Dave Cottle has in College Park.

Dave Cottle can’t just be reaching the NCAA Tournament. He HAS to be reaching the level of the Final Four-and in the mix to win national championships.

Unlike my statement about Jimmy Patsos-this IS a “Dave Cottle must go” argument…IF the Terps aren’t playing at M&T Bank Stadium come Memorial Day weekend.

10. The Sun’s Dan Connolly says Luke Scott would rather play in field, not be full-time DH

And I’d like someone to bring me a plate full of the shrimp vindaloo from the indian joint Drew Forrester and I went to in Indianapolis Friday night…..

vindaloo

Sing it with me….”You can’t always get what you want….”

I’m not sure where Luke Scott wants to play. I think he wants to play Left Field, but that’s absolutely Nolan Reimold’s spot. If he wants to play First Base-I guess he has just as good of an argument as ANYONE who is currently on the roster-but he’s not a first baseman either.

Maybe he should just be happy that he’s getting 4 and a half million bucks after hitting no better than .258 in any of his last 3 seasons.

I’m just saying.

11. MLB.com’s Spencer Fordin says Jake Arrieta, Caleb Joseph, Alfredo Simon, Chad Moeller amongst Birds’ non-roster Spring Training invites

The only name on this list that is AT ALL interesting to me is Arrieta, who I couldn’t figure out why he didn’t get a look at the end of the season last year. Arrieta is the “next” of the group of young pitchers, and may be closer to being ready than we realize. If David Hernandez and Jason Berken are in the mix for the 5th spot (behind Kevin Millwood, Jeremy Guthrie, Brian Matusz and Chris Tillman); why shouldn’t Arrieta be?

12. WNST.net’s Drew Forrester says Pimlico/Laurel auction delayed until February 10

If I was David Cordish right now, I would probably look like this….

hulk

The guy paid his money for slots. He got into the bidding process. He got zoning rights for his slots. Why the hell should he have to wait for the chance to try to win the tracks?

In other horse racing news, Jeff Seder told Drew this morning in an interview on “The Comcast Morning Show” on AM1570 WNST that if his group were to win the tracks, he WOULD change the rule to allow outside alcohol to be brought in on Preakness Saturday. David Cordish had also said he would change that rule. We are assuming that Joe DeFrancis would NOT change the rule, as we are assuming that the Maryland Jockey Club would maintain control of the event.

And finally, I leave you with this.

We DVR a lot of things in the Glenn Clark home. 30 Rock, Parks and Recreation, The Office, SNL, Family Guy, The Simpsons, Man vs. Wild with Bear Grylls, WWE Raw, the ESPN 30 for 30 Series, and for some reason Charm School with Ricki Lake are amongst the programs you’ll find on our Comcast DVR. But maybe my favorite show on the DVR is “True Life” on MTV. Yesterday, the episode “True Life: I’m Deaf” was on my DVR, and while I’ve seen the episode before-I decided to watch it again.

If you never saw the episode, you can watch it here.

The episode is about a gal named Amanda from Towson University, who attempted to tryout to be a Baltimore Ravens dance squad member despite the fact that she’s deaf. At the end of the episode, you find out that despite the fact that she didn’t make the Ravens squad, she tried out to be a Baltimore Blast cheerleader and made the team.

All of this was basically a buildup for me posting pictures of a hot Blast cheerleader and saying something along the lines of “maybe you should get to a game”…..

blastamanda

BUT!!!! There’s another update! Amanda has since moved on to a new gig…..she’s a…..PHILADELPHIA EAGLES CHEERLEADER?!?!?!?

Ugh.

amandac

I thought these stories were supposed to have happy endings!

Talk to you tomorrow.

With Ravens Season Over, Draft Season Begins in Orlando

Posted on 19 January 2010 by Glenn Clark

As all of you know, there are few people in the world who are bigger fans of the NFL Draft than I am. Last season, I profiled over 100 NFL Draft prospects in the months leading up to the big event at Radio City Music Hall. Some of those players eventually became Baltimore Ravens, including Michael Oher, Paul Kruger, Lardarius Webb, Cedric Peerman, Jason Phillips, Isaiah Williams, Graham Gano, Eron Riley and more.

And with NFL season now over here in Charm City, it is time to start looking ahead to the 2010 NFL Draft; which will be held April 22-24th again in New York. I like to call the next 3 months “NFL Draft Season”, as it is much more than just the 3 days that determine how teams will make their picks. The season begins with the announcements from underclassmen, then moves to college all-star games (including the Senior Bowl), the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis (which myself, Drew Forrester & Nestor Aparicio will be covering LIVE here on WNST.net), individual Pro Timing Days, and team interviews that all build to the 3 days in April.

We will be starting our weekly NFL Draft Preview segment on “The Comcast Morning Show” this week, the segment will air Wednesdays at 9:40am. This Wednesday, Chad Reuter from NFLDraftScout.com & CBS Sports will be joining us. Chad will be reporting to us live from Orlando, where the annual East West Shrine Game marks the start of College All-Star season. Two Ravens rookies (Jason Phillips of TCU and Dannell Ellerbe of Georgia) were participants in last year’s game, as well as former Terrapins C Edwin Williams, who played for the Washington Redskins this season. It is definitely worth paying attention to what is going on at the game.

As I did last year, I will rank the likely needs the Ravens face in the offseason. This list may be altered as players are released/retired/traded/signed/injured/etc.

1-Wide Receiver (This goes without saying, as the team currently has just Marcus Smith under contract.)
2-Tight End (They almost got Brandon Pettigrew last year, there is no doubt they will be looking at the position again this season. Todd Heap should be back, but LJ Smith is a free agent-and clearly Heap is getting no younger.)
3-Cornerback (While they likely think they have two capable starting CB’s on the team, there is no doubt that Ozzie Newsome and company would welcome another impact corner to a group that already includes Domonique Foxworth, Lardarius Webb and Chris Carr.)
4-Safety (Ed Reed’s future makes this a very crucial spot, as does the pending free agency of Dawan Landry. Tom Zbikowski and Haruki Nakamura appear to be part of the team’s future at the position, but having both as starters in 2010 wouldn’t likely bode well.)
5-Outside Linebacker/Rush End (Dwan Edwards is a free agent. Trevor Pryce may choose to retire. Terrell Suggs came in last season out of shape. Antwan Barnes is a restricted free agent. And no one needs to be reminded that this group struggled to get pressure on opposing QB’s during a large part of Greg Mattison’s first season as Defensive Coordinator.)
6-Kicker (Billy Cundiff will be an option for this team, but even he knows there will at least be competition for the job. It may come from a free agent kicker-Graham Gano comes to mind-but it may come from a rookie as well. OR the team may decide to go somewhere else altogether.)
7-Quarterback (Obviously Joe Flacco is THE guy, and the team would be fine with bringing back Troy Smith to back him up. But Smith’s agent made it clear they want him traded, and the Ravens may decide to give him his wish. John Beck remains in the mix, but the Ravens will have to give him a contract. The team could use strength at the position from a young QB if they decide to let Smith and/or Beck go.)
8-Interior Offensive Line (Matt Birk is not getting any younger, and Chris Chester may be up for starter money somewhere else. Marshal Yanda is also a RFA, so this team may need to add to the group-especially at Center.)
9-Exterior Offensive Line (Jared Gaither is a RFA-and the Ravens will have to make a difficult decision there. Someone will want to give him money, it’s just a question of whether or not the Ravens are the team that will want to do it. Behind Gaither and Oher, the Ravens are woefully thin-as Oniel Cousins was somewhat adequate, but nothing more.)
10-Punter (I can’t imagine the Ravens won’t bring back Sam Koch, but I have to put this position on the list-as if Koch gets good money elsewhere, the Ravens will have a major need at the position.)

With all of this in mind, I present my first 10 profiles of the 2010 NFL Draft season. These are all players who are participating in this week’s East West Shrine Game. Thanks to NFLDraftScout.com, Wikipedia, and my own personal conversations with scouts from around the NFL for help with information gathering.

WR Freddie Barnes
(Bowling Green)

His numbers this season were jaw-dropping. His 155 catches were a NCAA record. His 1,770 receiving yards were a Falcons school record. His 19 TD’s lead the FBS. But his size isn’t necessarily ideal. He’s just 6’0″ and 212 pounds. The Ravens will absolutely need a more sizable threat at WR, but they will also likely need more than one addition to the group. Barnes looks like a lower round pick right now-but he had a huge game in the Humanitarian Bowl, and started practice in Orlando with a bang. A combine invite and solid performance could vault him up boards. One scout told me he could be Anquan Boldin-esque. Everyone in the country would like a player like that. Barnes is VERY athletic, he played QB and basketball in high school in Illinois.

TE Andrew Quarless (Penn State)

quarless

If the Ravens are interested in an impact receiver at the TE position, Andrew Quarless might not be the guy. Quarless had his best statistical season in 2009-hauling in 41 passes for 536 yards and 3 TD’s. But in his 4 year career, Quarless caught just 87 balls for 1,146 yards and 8 TD’s. However, his numbers-and his size-don’t differ THAT much from Pettigrew, who was a Top 20 pick just a season ago by the Lions. Heck, he may even be a bit quicker. But his rap sheet includes a DUI arrest, an underage drinking citation, and marijuana possession. He needs to prove his strength in the months leading up to the Draft, as his frame and ability could very well help him rise to the 2nd night of the Draft (now rounds 2-3). He may well be a guy who would already be a high level prospect had he not been splitting time with Mickey Shuler Jr. during his career in Happy Valley.

S Kam Chancellor (Virginia Tech)

Chancellor has admitted to trying to mold his game after late Skins Safety Sean Taylor, and with good reason. Chancellor is an all-around tough Safety; measuring in at 6’3″, 232 pounds with a great burst as well. Likely a Day 2 pick, Chancellor was an All-ACC performer with experience at both safety positions and also at CB during his career in Blacksburg. He recorded 204 tackles during his Hokies career, along with 6 interceptions, but did not return any for scores. He is also a gifted athlete, having played QB during his HS career in Norfolk.

DE Greg Hardy (Ole Miss)

greghardy

If he was fully healthy, Greg Hardy would almost certainly be a 1st round pick. But even with the wrist injuries that forced him to miss more than a quarter of his senior season and the ankle troubles that plagued him throughout his Rebels career might not keep him from hearing his name called Thursday night. Mostly because he managed to pile up 26 sacks during his time in Oxford, to go along with 38.5 TFL’s, 6 forced fumbles and in interception. The Ravens won’t have to go far for a scouting report on Hardy, as his former Mississippi teammate Michael Oher was also a teammate in high school at the Briarcrest Christian Academy in Memphis. He checks in around 6’4″ and somewhere between 260-275 pounds; making his measurements at the Combine and his Pro Day all more important.

TE Richard Dickson (LSU)

dickson

At 6’3″, 245 pounds; Dickson is likely not going to be a traditional TE, but more likely a FB/H-Back/TE hybrid. The NFL scout I discussed Dickson with said the inevitable comparison is Chris Cooley; but Dickson has to prove himself to be an explosive threat. Dickson’s senior season failed to match the production of his sophomore and junior seasons, as he averaged 350 yards receiving and 4.5 TD’s during his middle seasons-but fell off to just 157 yards and 0 TD’s in his final season in Baton Rouge. Despite the drop-off, he finished his career as the most prolific TE in Tigers history.

CB Devin Ross (Arizona)

devinross

I’m not certain that the Ravens are itching for another 5’11” CB at this point, but they could use depth at the position, and Ross will be available on Day 2 (if not Day 3). Ross will immediately be compared to fellow former Wildcats CB Antoine Cason (who just wrapped up his 2nd season with the San Diego Chargers), and the Ravens will inevitably try to compare him to another former CB who played in Tucson by the name of Chris McAlister-who just so happens to be the greatest CB in team history. Ross will benefit from having his name mentioned in the same breath as those two, because he doesn’t have a comparable resume. What he lacks in size, he’ll need to make up in quickness during Draft season-starting this week in Orlando. He recorded just 1 interception in his senior campaign-5 for his career. He’ll have to overcome the thud his college career ended on; giving up a 74 yard TD to Nebraska’s Niles Paul in a 33-0 loss to the Huskers in the Holiday Bowl.

LB Ross Pospisil (Navy)

I include Ross Pospisil on this list only because he’s the only “local” college football player participating in the East West Shrine Game. He’s certainly not a prospect to be drafted, but could be an option for the Ravens to take a look at after the draft ends. Just a season ago, Navy FB Eric Kettani and Slotback Shun White were picked up by the New England Patriots following the Draft, as they’ve decided to invest in the former Midshipmen and wait out the service time. Obviously, Saints FB Kyle Eckel previously was able to skirt service time after leaving Annapolis, but I don’t expect that from Pospisil. Ross did have 91 tackles on his senior campaign, including 6 TFL’s. He’s 6’0″ and 227 lbs., and is definitely capable of being a bruiser-but the Ravens would have to be willing to make a long-term investment in a guy that won’ t be able to help them anytime soon. It’s unlikely.

QB Daryll Clark (Penn State)

clark

The funny thing about Daryll Clark’s draft profile is that there is nothing that immediately makes you say “no” about him. He’s a bigger kid (6’2″, 238); but he’s fairly mobile (expected to post a 40 in the 4.6 range) and certainly appears to possess a capable arm. Over his last 2 seasons, he’s completed 60% of his passes for over 5,500 yards and 43 TD’s. In the same time span, he was picked 16 times and was sacked 26 times. Certainly the O-Line play in State College didn’t help those numbers much. He was 22-4 as a starting QB-but his biggest knock is the 4 losses. Clark’s worst performances seemed to come in the most important games for the Nittany Lions-2 against Iowa (both ruining perfect seasons), USC in the Rose Bowl, and Ohio State with the Big Ten title still within reach. He’s not a perfect prospect, but for a likely Day 3 guy, he could certainly prove to be a capable player should the Ravens lose Troy Smith or John Beck.

CB Brian Jackson (Oklahoma)

bjack

You can’t help but get that “What’s not to like” feeling when you look at Brian Jackson’s status. He’s a bit taller (6’1″) than the Ravens’ Current crop of corners, with decent speed (expected to run in the 4.5’s) and has just 5% body fat on his 200 pound frame according to the Sooners. He has football in his blood-his cousin Chris Draft plays LB for the Buffalo Bills. He steadily improved as his playing time increased during his career (112 tackles and 6 picks over his final 2 seasons) and was a very solid special teams player to boot. So….”what’s not to like?” I posed the question to a NFL scout who pointed out to me that there has to be some level of concern stemming from a 2006 knee injury, and while he appeared to be solid, he was never outstanding. He’s had mixed results against his best competition, but did post an interception against Colt McCoy and Texas. Thought by some to be a Day 3 selection, the same scout told me “there’s NO WAY he’s getting past Friday night.”

S T.J. Ward (Oregon)

I have done a lot of research, and while I have no reason to believe T.J. Ward’s nickname is “Freight Train”, I have no reason why it isn’t……



I could go on with “big hit porn”, but instead I’ll move on the details. Ward is a tremendous talent, a likely 2nd round pick. If he weren’t 5’10”, his skill set might get him into Round 1. He recorded 180 tackles over his last 3 seasons in Eugene-along with a pair of picks and 6 forced fumbles. He did all of that despite missing a number of games due to knee and ankle injuries-which will hurt his Draft stock. Ward will absolutely be worth the risk to any team that picks him, but he certainly doesn’t come without red flags.

4 Positives for the Ravens going into Next Season

Posted on 19 January 2010 by Tom Clayton

Man how I wish I was getting ready to get on a bus to go and watch the Ravens play Rex, Bart, Jim, and the rest of the Jets Sunday for a shot at the Super Bowl.  Unfortunately I will be sitting at home rooting for all of those guys to make it to Miami for a shot at the “prize”.  While I must admit I have been pretty depressed over the last four days Ravens fans do have some positives to take from this season and some exciting prospects for the next.  As I sit back and reflect four things have really hit me as things that already have me fired up.

Ray Rice is a BEAST

 

There is no question that Ray Rice is the most dynamic offensive player in the history of the Ravens and the teams clear cut offensive MVP this season.  “Little Ray” has become as valuable an offensive weapon as there is in the league and is just as dangerous an all purpose player as Brian Westbrook in his prime.  But Rice combines his receiving skills with a tough, physical running style, something that Westbrook at his best could never claim.

 

Rice made the Pro Bowl in his first season as a starter and if he remains healthy it looks like he has many more Pro Bowls in his future. 

 

Domonique Foxworth actually played very well down the stretch

 

No player took more heat early in the season than Domonique Foxworth, but as the season went on the chatter seemed to die down.  That was because down the stretch Foxworth seemed to get comfortable in the purple and black and started making some plays.  As the Ravens battled for their playoff lives Foxworth began to lock up the opposing teams best receiver and even showed some physicality making plays in run defense. 

 

Foxworth may never become the shutdown corner some Ravens fans expected when he signed this offseason but I think he proved that he is a very serviceable if not above average NFL corner.

 

Dwan Edwards and Dannell Ellerbe are playmakers!

 

Dwan Edwards has been saddled with the “bust” tag since being taken in the second round of the 2004 draft; that was until this year.  Dwan seemed to “get it” in his sixth NFL season and was one of the unheralded heroes of the Ravens defense.  Dwan finished the regular season with 47 tackles and a sack and dominated the Patriots in the Wild Card round with 7 tackles and a sack in the teams 33-14 win.  Unfortunately Dwan is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent and should get a lot of attention from general managers around the league.

 

Unlike Dwan, Dannell Ellerbe came into the league as an undrafted free agent out of Georgia and many people didn’t expect him to make the 53 man roster much less end the season starting next to Ray Lewis in the Ravens linebacking corps. 

 

While Tavares Gooden battled through injuries and disappointed when he was on the field Ellerbe took full advantage of his opportunity.  After not playing the first three games of the season Ellerbe burst onto the scene in week four against the Patriots and played solid, consistent football for the remainder of the season including the playoffs where he recorded 16 tackles and showed that he belongs on the field every week. 

 

Ellerbe will need to work on his pass coverage as he was beaten a lot by the opposing tight end but he was a force in run support and showed a lot of potential in his first season in the NFL.

 

Terrell Suggs will be take part in all of the Ravens offseason conditioning and OTA’s

 

Suggs had his worst NFL season after signing a huge contract in the offseason and that was directly contributed to the fact he came to camp out of shape and not ready to play.  “T-Sizzle” fought through numerous injuries, legal troubles, and looked more than a step slow when he was on the field.

 

I think with full dedication to the team and its offseason programs Suggs will be back in the Pro Bowl next season and people will look at this season as more of an aberration than the rule.

Divisional Playoff Preview: Ravens @ Colts

Posted on 15 January 2010 by Derek Arnold

Ravens Colts Playoff

Ravens Colts Stats 2

Another season, another trip to face the AFC South winners, holders of the #1 overall seed in the AFC. Can the Ravens repeat the huge upset they pulled last year in Nashville against the Titans? Methinks yes. Let’s look at the reasons why…

Peyton Zulu

1. The Colts’ regular season dominance will again hurt them in the postseason

The Colts won more games than any other team 00’s. However, as of right now there are two teams who have won more Lombardi Trophies than they did (Pats, Steelers) and three others who have won just as many (Ravens, Buccaneers, Giants). All their regular season victories have not translated into January and February success. In fact, at times they have been so dominant during the regular season that they have locked up the #1 seed early enough that their last game or two has been meaningless. Every time that such a scenario has played out so far, they have lost their first playoff game. That’s right; Peyton Manning and his Colts are 0-3 in the Divisional Round during years in which they had a bye during the Wild Card round. Their only Super Bowl win came in 2006, when they were forced to play a Wild Card game.

This year, the Colts wrapped up the AFC’s #1 seed on December 13th (Week 14). They then played to win one more time, four days later in Jacksonville. They did this only to set the record for most consecutive regular season wins (Edit – they had already broken this record the previous week. So, Bill Polian is not only a shithead, but he can’t count either). Since then, they have played a game “in anger” exactly zero times. They took their starters out in Week 16 against the New York Jets, and promptly lost any chance at an undefeated season they may have had (more on that later), and laid a stinker in Buffalo in Week 17, finishing up at 14-2. Tack on last week’s bye, and it will have been one day short of a full month since the Colts last tried to win a football game.

The Ravens, on the other hand, have been fighting for their Playoff lives all season. Under intense pressure to win, they came out on top in three of their last four in the regular season and then pounded Tom Brady and the Patriots in the Wild Card round. If not for a few costly drops in Pittsburgh in Week 16, the good guys in purple would be riding a nice little five game winning streak.

It will take the Colts at least a quarter to get re-acclimated to game speed, and part of me believes they will not be able to match the Ravens’ intensity at any point during the 60 minutes. If the Ravens can start fast like they did in New England (not necessarily 24-0, but 10-0 or 14-0), the thought of “here we go again” will force itself into the Indy psyche.

2. Ray Rice, Willis McGahee, and Le’Ron McClain

The Colts were 24th in the NFL stopping the run, allowing 126.5 yards per game. Sure, these three managed only 100 yards combined in the Week 11 meeting, but that was back when the Ravens still had no offensive identity. Now that they are fully committed to being a pound-it-down-your-throat running team, they should have much less trouble pushing around the Colts’ undersized front seven. In four of the last five games, one of the Ravens’ rushers has topped the century mark – Ray Rice three times (166 vs. Det, 141 @ Pit, 159 @ NE) and Willis McGahee once (167 @ Oak).

The formula for success against Peyton Manning is the same as it’s been pretty much his entire career – keep him off the field as much as possible, and when he is on it, move him off his “spot.”

The Ravens’ running game will go a long way to fulfilling the first ingredient in that recipe. As far as the other…

3. The return of the Ravens’ pass rush

There is no denying that the Ravens have had trouble getting to the quarterback at times this season. However, over the last several games, they seem to have figured things out a bit.

In Week 16, they sacked Ben Roethlisberger four times – 3.5 came from defensive linemen
In Week 17, they sacked Jamarcus Russell three times and caused him to fumble once – all 3 were from defensive linemen
Last week, they sacked Tom Brady three times and caused him to fumble once – Two of 3 were from defensive linemen

So, not only are the Ravens now getting to quarterbacks, they are doing it without being forced to blitz the house. This latter point is huge against Peyton Manning, who eats blitzes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Peyton Manning BEGS you to blitz him. If the Ravens can pressure him, get his feet all nice and happy, and move him off of his spot, he will become very average very quickly.

Guys like Dwan Edwards, Kelly Gregg, Haloti Ngata, Terrell Suggs, and Antwan Barnes, who have picked up their games recently, need to keep it up Saturday night at Lucas Oil Stadium.

Throw in the occasional well-timed blitz by Ray Lewis (who is much better served rushing the passer than say, trying to keep up with Dallas Clark in the middle of the field), and hopefully the Ravens will be making Peyton very familiar with the turf.

3(b). The Ravens’ Secondary

This point goes hand-in-hand with the last one. Since the Ravens’ front has been getting to passers, their formerly dreadful secondary has suddenly come alive. Dominique Foxworth has started to live up to his huge free agent contract over the last month or so. Chris Carr, filling in for the injured Lardarius Webb, has improved every single game since becoming a starting CB. Hell, even Frank Freakin’ Walker was making plays last week in New England. When Walker is batting down passes, instead of having flags heaved in his direction, you know things are going well.

The Ravens picked off Manning twice in Baltimore in Week 11. They won’t have the advantage of crowd noise that they enjoyed in Charm City, but the play of the aforementioned guys, along with Dawan Landry, has improved dramatically since even that mid-season contest. If they continue their strong play, that should more than make up for the fact that Manning will be operating in his cozy home confines.

4. Michael Oher and Jared Gaither

These two won our “Play Like a Raven” award in Week 11, as they kept the Colts’ fearsome twosome of Dwight Freeney and Robert Mathis completely shutout of the stat sheet. We all know from those investment commercials that past success is no indicator of future performance and all that, but it’s good that the Ravens’ young tackles will have some confidence going up against such an intimidating opponent.

Freeney, who said at the end of “The Blind Side” (book, not movie), “You tell Michael Oher I’ll be waiting for him,” will have another chance to back up those words.

Unfortunately, as far as the Ravens are concerned, he may have a much higher number of chances than he did in the previous meeting.

Freeney usually lines up on to the quarterback’s left (the “Blind Side,” naturally), while Michael Oher has spent the majority of his rookie season playing right tackle. However, Jared Gaither’s status for Saturday is still up in the air. If Gaither cannot go, Oher would again move to the left side. What happens on the right side would then also be undetermined – the Ravens could put Oneil Cousins at right tackle OR move Marshal Yanda from right guard to right tackle, and reinsert Chris Chester at right guard.

Gaither did fully practice on Thursday, but would not talk to reporters about his injury. Cross your fingers that he is able to go.

And now, for some silly reasons:

5. Karma

The Colts’ brass’ decision to forego the chance at a perfect season really sucks. It sucks for their players. It sucks for their fans. It sucks for fans of football in general. It sucks for anybody who gets sick of seeing that old curmudgeon Mercury Morris vindicated every damn year. It just…really sucks.

The Colts’ players were visibly distraught on the sidelines in Week 16 after the starters had been removed. Watching their chance at history go up in flames obviously did not sit well.

Understandably so.

Imagine being Peyton Manning. You’re constantly compared with Tom Brady. You hear all the time how the two of you are 1-2, in some order, among quarterbacks of this generation. Those that argue for Brady point to his postseason success as the deciding factor. Tom Brady was two minutes from posting a historic 19-0 season. He failed.

Now, you have the chance to be the one that goes 19-0. If you can win your second Lombardi Trophy, and go 19-0 in the process, something ol’ Tommy was unable to do, you’ll win. YOU will be the one that did what Tom could not. YOU will now be the undisputed best.

And then Bill Polian goes and takes all that out from under you.

How would you feel if you were Peyton? Deflated, I’d say, to put it mildly.

The other 44 guys wearing horseshoes on their helmets Saturday might not be dejected to quite that level, but they’ll still be a bit less motivated, to one degree or another, than they would have been had they finished the regular season 16-0.

Aside from that, the Colts NEED to lose at some point this postseason for the sake of football fans everywhere. If they win the Super Bowl, after deciding to rest their players and not try for 19-0, it will deprive us of the chance to see any team try to be perfect in the future. The Colts CANNOT be allowed to set the precedent that resting your players, even with the perfect season on the line, is the way to go, or other teams will surely follow.

Roger Goodell says there is “no solution” to teams resting starters. Yes there is: BEAT THE HELL OUT OF THOSE TEAMS. Prove, time and time again, that you cannot just turn the competitive edge on and off like a light switch.

SOMEONE needs to beat the Colts this January, for football fans everywhere. Might as well be the Ravens.

Oh, and of course there’s those whole stole-our-team then knocked-us-out-of-the-playoffs-in-2006 karma that needs to be repaid.

6. Nestminder in da house

Finally, the Ravens will win because I’m going to my first postseason road game. I’m ridiculously pumped to go to Indy, and judging by the fact that I had to book my flight out of Dulles, due to all Baltimore-Indianapolis flights being booked, I am very eager to see just how well the purple is represented in the Midwest.

I’ll be at the WNST pre-game tailgate party at the Rock Lobster, and if you’re in Indy, you should be to. Hope to see you there.

I’ll have plenty of pictures, and hopefully some videos, of the trip next week. Hopefully (come on, come on, COME ON) they will be celebratory in nature.
