“The Reality Check” Week 11 NFL Power Rankings

Posted on 13 November 2013 by Glenn Clark

Glenn Clark’s Rankings…

32. Jacksonville Jaguars (Last Week 32)

The good news? They won. The bad news? So did all of the other bad teams.

31. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (31)

Same issue.

30. Oakland Raiders (26)

Pick up Rashad Jennings, they said.

29. Houston Texans (27)

I picked them to go to the Super Bowl. No. Really.

28. Atlanta Falcons (24)

28th, y’all. 28th.

27. Washington Redskins (23)

I mean, that’s just awful.

26. Minnesota Vikings (30)

So Jared Allen is still pretty good.

25. Buffalo Bills (21)

I’m sorry I ever got a good feeling about them.

24. St. Louis Rams (29)

I have no idea what to make of that. None.

23. New York Giants (28)

Totally in the NFC East mix.

22. Tennessee Titans (19)

So…does Jake Locker get another year?

21. Pittsburgh Steelers (25)

I think I’m going to say “Pittsburgher” out loud and giggle again.

20. Miami Dolphins (16)

But they might finish the season at Number 30.

19. San Diego Chargers (15)

Good news-Miami next.

18. Green Bay Packers (12)

J.R.R. Tolkien should make a hell of a quarterback.

17. Baltimore Ravens (22)

KNOCK IT DOWN!

The Five Plays That Determined The Game: Ravens/Bengals

Posted on 12 November 2013 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’ 20-17 (OT) win over the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday at M&T Bank Stadium…

(Note: not all pictures are always of actual play)

Glenn Clark’s Plays…

5. Justin Tucker 46 yard field goal good (Overtime)

4. James Ihedigbo 37 yard return of Andy Dalton interception intended for Tyler Eifert, Mohamed Sanu called for 11 yard personal foul (2nd quarter)

3. Reggie Nelson draws 48 yard pass interference on Joe Flacco pass intended for Jacoby Jones (1st down)

2. Terrell Suggs and Corey Graham tackle Andy Dalton for no gain on 4th & 1 (1st down)

1. Giovani Bernard -11 yard catch from Andy Dalton on 4th down, tackled by Corey Graham (Overtime)

Our Ravens/Bengals “Pats on the Ass”

Our Ravens/Bengals “Pats on the Ass”

Posted on 10 November 2013 by Glenn Clark

After every Baltimore Ravens victory, Ryan Chell and I take to the airwaves on “The Creative Deck Designs 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.” Ryan and I select five different players/coaches each.

Here are our “Pats on the Ass” following the Ravens’ 20-17 (OT) win over the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday at M&T Bank Stadium…

Glenn’s Pats…

5. Ed Dickson

 

4. Justin Tucker

3. Torrey Smith

 

2. Elvis Dumervil

1. Lardarius Webb (Pat on Both Cheeks)

“The Reality Check” Week 10 NFL Power Rankings

Posted on 06 November 2013 by Glenn Clark

Glenn Clark’s Rankings…

32. Jacksonville Jaguars (Last Week 32)

You know all of those “lost their bye week” jokes? So…the Jaguars…they actually did, right?

31. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (31)

I don’t care that they had a lead. They stink.

30. Minnesota Vikings (30)

Another primetime game! Yay!

29. St. Louis Rams (29)

Hey but there’s Zac Stacy and all.

28. New York Giants (28)

So which crappy running back plays this week?

27. Houston Texans (27)

A one week moratorium on making fun of them obviously.

26. Oakland Raiders (24)

Can the Ravens cancel any of their games to schedule the Raiders’ pass defense as a replacement?

25. Pittsburgh Steelers (23)

Could you imagine if while we were going through this, the Steelers were having a good season?

24. Atlanta Falcons (22)

What week? You know…what week does Matt Ryan get an “elbow injury”?

23. Washington Redskins (26)

MAYBE on their way back? MAYBE?

22. Baltimore Ravens (14)

Not a good football team.

21. Buffalo Bills (19)

TuelTime was actually kinda exciting.

20. Philadelphia Eagles (25)

Very plausible playoff team. Honestly.

19. Tennessee Titans (21)

Would I want Kendall Wright in a trade for Jordan Reed?

18. Cleveland Browns (20)

I still can’t believe that happened.

17. Arizona Cardinals (17)

I watched roughly as much Cards football on their bye week as I have every other week.

The Five Plays That Determined The Game: Ravens/Browns

Posted on 05 November 2013 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’ 24-18 loss to the Cleveland Browns Sunday at FirstEnergy Stadium…

(Note: not all pictures are always of actual play)

Glenn Clark’s Plays…

5. Jason Campbell 12 yard run on 3rd & 3 (4th quarter)

The first good opportunity the Ravens had to end the Browns’ final drive.

4. Jabaal Sheard sacks Joe Flacco for 1 yard loss on 3rd & 3 at Baltimore 47 (4th quarter)

This was even worse considering the Ravens had already converted a 4th down on the drive.

3. Davone Bess 1 yard TD catch from Jason Campbell on 4th and goal (1st quarter)

A remarkable catch and a play that set the tone for the game.

2. Davone Bess 3 yard catch from Jason Campbell on 4th and 1 (4th quarter)

The Ravens would have ended up with the ball, plenty of time and great field position.

1. Eric Martin recovers Spencer Lanning punt muffed by Tandon Doss at Ravens 11 (3rd quarter)

Clearly the single biggest turn of the game.

Our Ravens/Browns “Slaps to the Head”

Our Ravens/Browns “Slaps to the Head”

Posted on 03 November 2013 by Glenn Clark

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

The Ravens fell to the Cleveland Browns 24-18 Sunday at FirstEnergy Stadium, meaning there were no Pats to be awarded.

So instead of offering “Pats on the Ass”, Ryan and I 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/coaches after each game.

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

Glenn Clark’s Slaps…

5. Corey Graham

4. Matt Elam

3. Michael Oher

2. Ray Rice

1. Juan Castillo (Two Slaps)

“The Reality Check” Week 9 NFL Power Rankings

Posted on 30 October 2013 by Glenn Clark

Glenn Clark’s Rankings…

32. Jacksonville Jaguars (Last Week 32)

I should not be forced to have to say something about them every week.

31. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (31)

Mike Glennon might be auditioning for jobs elsewhere.

30. Minnesota Vikings (30)

Jared Allen is going to look really good not winning games the rest of the season.

29. St. Louis Rams (26)

That loss might have been the highlight of the season.

28. New York Giants (29)

Somehow…some way…not done.

27. Houston Texans (27)

Why do I feel like they might not be done either?

26. Washington Redskins (25)

How many more games does RGIII leave early this year?

25. Philadelphia Eagles (23)

Nothing about this team is fun to watch.

24. Oakland Raiders (28)

Terrelle Pryor however remains fun to watch.

23. Pittsburgh Steelers (21)

I gave them too much credit for beating a team that isn’t very good.

22. Atlanta Falcons (20)

If Matt Ryan is as good as everyone says he is, he survives the loss of his receivers.

21. Tennessee Titans (22)

Maybe now we’ll see some Kenny Britt?

20. Cleveland Browns (19)

Oh God. Please no.

19. Buffalo Bills (17)

Did you know Mario Williams was already in double digit sacks?

18. Miami Dolphins (16)

They were 3-0.

17. Arizona Cardinals (24)

A defense that is SO much better than you realize.

“The Reality Check” Week 8 NFL Power Rankings

Posted on 23 October 2013 by Glenn Clark

Glenn Clark’s Rankings…

32. Jacksonville Jaguars (Last Week: 32)

So…ummm…Mike Brown is a thing question mark.

31. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (31)

Mike James. Don’t act like you don’t know his name.

30. Minnesota Vikings (29)

“Josh Freeman is still our quarterback because aww f*ck it. Wait…he’s hurt? Well then we’ll start Ponder. Because, again, aww f*ck it.”

29. New York Giants (30)

It was neat to flash all the way back to the guy that was on the cover of Madden two years ago.

28. Oakland Raiders (28)

They had a bye? I had just assumed they played and no one cared as usual.

27. Houston Texans (22)

I know this is hard to believe for a team that I dropped five spots to #27, but they actually showed some things.

26. St. Louis Rams (21)

But at least Janoris Jenkins had a neat weekend!

25. Washington Redskins (27)

They beat a team playing Josh McCown. Wait, was it Luke? No, it was Josh. Or Cade McNown. I don’t know.

24. Arizona Cardinals (17)

So…maybe not so much on the Carson Palmer experiment then?

23. Philadelphia Eagles (18)

Michael Vick’s return will allow Matt Barkley to conduct their band I guess.

22. Tennessee Titans (19)

Better with Jake Locker back-perhaps not soon enough to save anything.

21. Pittsburgh Steelers (26)

But the team they beat Sunday wasn’t really all that good.

20. Atlanta Falcons (24)

HARRY DOUGLAS MANIA!

19. Cleveland Browns (16)

And if Jason Campbell doesn’t work then…I don’t know, Troy Smith?

18. Carolina Panthers (25)

They’re probably about to inexplicably lose to a terrible team again, right? Who’s next on the schedule?

17. Buffalo Bills (23)

Is their a greater disparity between NFL locales than Buffalo and back to back trips to Miami and New Orleans?

Here are the five plays that determined the Ravens’ 19-16 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers Sunday at Heinz Field…

(Note: not all pictures are always of actual play)

Glenn Clark’s Plays…

5. Bernard Pierce tackled by Lawrence Timmons and Steve McLendon for one yard loss on 3rd & 1 (1st quarter)

You cannot start a 3rd & 1 run five yards behind the line of scrimmage. Oy.

4. Lamar Woodley sacks Joe Flacco for 10 yard loss on 3rd & 8 from Pittsburgh 34 (2nd quarter)

It would have been a long field goal attempt, but I’d rather that than a punt.

3. William Gay breaks up Joe Flacco pass intended for Jacoby Jones on 3rd & 12 (3rd quarter)

Man did that one really bother me watching the film again Monday. Very close to six.

2. Elvis Dumervil called for unnecessary roughness after Jerricho Cotchery 7 yard catch from Ben Roethlisberger (3rd quarter)

From 2nd & 17 to an eight minute drive.

1. Vince Williams recovers Justin Tucker onside kick attempt, Tucker flagged for illegal touching (4th quarter)

The decision was questionable. The execution was putrid.
