Suggs, Canty stil missing from practice

Posted on 01 October 2014 by Luke Jones

The Ravens were without two key defensive starters Wednesday as they continued preparations for their Week 5 meeting with the Indianapolis Colts.

Linebacker Terrell Suggs (groin) and defensive end Chris Canty (illness) were listed as non-participants in addition to left tackle Eugene Monroe (knee surgery) and rookie defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan (meniscus). Monroe is expected to miss his second straight game as he recovers from last week’s arthroscopic surgery.

After being limited to just one practice last week, Suggs played in last Sunday’s win against Carolina but re-aggravated a groin injury and left late in the fourth quarter with the Ravens holding a 38-10 lead. The veteran linebacker downplayed the severity, but it wasn’t surprising to see him sitting out on Wednesday as a result.

Canty was active and started against the Panthers despite missing practice all last week with a knee injury.

Meanwhile, Indianapolis was without former Ravens defensive lineman Arthur Jones, who continues to recover from a high ankle sprain that’s kept him sidelined for the last two games. Veterans D’Qwell Jackson and Reggie Wayne both were given the day off on Wednesday.

Here is Wednesday’s injury report:

DID NOT PARTICIPATE: DE Chris Canty (illness), DT Timmy Jernigan (knee), T Eugene Monroe (knee), LB Terrell Suggs (thigh)
FULL PARTICIPATION: CB Chykie Brown (neck), RB Bernard Pierce (thigh)

DID NOT PARTICIPATE: RB Ahmad Bradshaw (NIR), LB D’Qwell Jackson (NIR), DT Arthur Jones (ankle), G Jack Mewhort (ankle), WR Reggie Wayne (NIR)
LIMITED PARTICIPATION: LB Jerrell Freeman (hamstring)
FULL PARTICIPATION: S Colt Henderson (groin), LB Andy Studebaker (hamstring), G Hugh Thorton (ankle)

Former Towson OT Pike, Morgan OL Barton sign UDFA deals

Posted on 12 May 2014 by WNST Staff

TOWSON, Md. – Towson Football alumnus and former All-American offensive tackle Eric Pike signed a free agent contract with the Indianapolis Colts today after the conclusion of the 2014 National Football League (NFL) draft.

A two-year captain, Pike was a consensus first team All-American selection as a senior. He earned All-Colonial Athletic Association honors three times, including first team notice as a junior and senior. During his career, he helped the Tigers win two CAA championships and make two appearances in the NCAA FCS playoffs. As a senior, he helped the Tigers post a 13-3 record and reach the national championship game.

Pike was named as the winner of the Doc Minnegan Award as the team’s Most Valuable Player. He set a school record by starting all 50 games of his college career and is only the third offensive lineman to win the award which was started in 1969. He joins Mike Gunthrop (1992) and Joe Ripple (2005) as the only linemen to be honored with the award which was named in honor of former Towson Director of Athletics Doc Minnegan.

NOTE: Former Morgan State OL Karim Barton has reportedly signed an undrafted free agent deal with the Philadelphia Eagles as well

Defensive tackle Jones leaving Ravens to sign with Indianapolis

Posted on 11 March 2014 by Luke Jones

What was expected all offseason became official Tuesday as Ravens defensive tackle Arthur Jones departed via free agency to sign a five-year contract with the Indianapolis Colts.

The move reunites Jones with former Baltimore defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano as the two shared a close relationship dating back to their days with the Ravens. Jones reportedly agreed to a five-year, $33 million contract that includes $16 million guaranteed as he leaves the organization that selected him in the fifth round of the 2010 draft.

“Colts nation, here I come,” Jones wrote on his Twitter page shortly after the deal was announced on Tuesday afternoon.

Though he played sparingly in his first two professional seasons, the 27-year-old Jones blossomed into an impact player in his fourth season while starting at the 3-technique defensive tackle spot, making 53 tackles and collecting four sacks in 14 games. Popular with both teammates and the media, Jones collected 120 tackles and 8 1/2 sacks in his four seasons with the Ravens.

Baltimore will now look to 2013 third-round pick Brandon Williams and third-year lineman DeAngelo Tyson to play prominent roles in trying to replace Jones’ production, but general manager Ozzie Newsome will likely look at the open market as well as the draft for new blood to add to the defensive line.

The 15-7-0 is sick of all these NFL bullies. You know, like the Jaguars. Big bullies.

Posted on 11 November 2013 by Glenn Clark

15 positive observations from the weekend of football, seven not so positive observations and we acknowledge a “zero” from outside the world of football. A reminder, there’s never any Ravens game analysis here. We do plenty of that elsewhere. It’s a trip through the weekend of football via videos, GIFs, memes, pictures, links, Tweets and shtick.

Unlike Richie Incognito, the 15-7-0 actually turned down Jay Glazer’s request for a Sunday morning interview. Also unlike Richie Incognito, the 15-7-0 only uses the term “expletive” once or twice per sentence. Personal rule. Except when I’m at church. Obviously.

15 Positive Observations…

1. Someone tell Rod Marinelli to get the champagne ready-there’s just one more domino to fall to keep the streak alive!

The Jaguars won a football game. Sure it was against Ryan Fitzpatrick, but it still counts!

Delanie Walker with the response of the day.

Via Terry McCormick of Titans Insider:

“It’s disgusting. I’m disappointed. I’m embarrassed. A team that’s 0-8 comes in here and beats us? Beats us on our home field, that’s 0-8, the Jaguars? Come on. Talking about first place? Talking about first place? We just got whooped by the Jaguars. We ain’t talking first place no more. It’s out the window. We’ve got to come back and play the Colts. I don’t know how everybody’s gonna handle it. I mean, we lost to the Jaguars.”


2. Keenan Reynolds ran many yards beyond the line of scrimmage Saturday. As a Baltimore Ravens fan, I was admittedly unaware this was allowed within the rules of football.

Navy beat Hawai’i. You know what that means.

Also, the most adorable picture you’ll see all weekend.

3. While I’ve always been in favor of college football going to the “division four” concept, I’m pretty sure it will be tough for Alabama to sell tickets when they’re the only team playing in it.

But honestly, Nick Saban has one like half a billion football games. THIS was the one that made him want to jump into his quarterback’s arms?

Tigers really opened up the playbook to try to top the Tide…

I can’t explain why-but this right here seems like the absolute perfect reaction to this game.


And elsewhere in the SEC, you guys remember the Manziel guy that one the Heisman Trophy that one time? The guy who plays at Texas A&M reminds me of him.

And finally elsewhere in the SEC (at least for now), Dorial Green-Beckham did what now?

4. So apparently the deal is that you actually CAN survive losing your head coach…but only if you have one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time on your roster.

Of course, Peyton Manning’s ankle was banged up during the course of the game-which apparently means some ref somewhere didn’t get the memo.

This lady is currently thinking to herself “there are like five people that come to games out here and I have to sit behind this one?”

5. This Riley Cooper guy is a nice little player. Any back story on this guy? He’s just kinda popped up out of nowhere these last couple of weeks. I bet he’s a really great dude.

This DeSean Jackson TD is obviously the responsibility of Aaron Rodgers not being in the game.

Elsewhere, LeSean McCoy is KILLING IT.

Clay Matthews played with a thing on his hand that is so ridiculous it would probably be disallowed even in the WWE.

Vinny Curry is lovable.

Also, Philly’s play call sheets are cooler than yours.

“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.

Four things you can count on: Death, taxes, the 15-7-0 and Jay Cutler getting hurt

Posted on 21 October 2013 by Glenn Clark

15 positive observations from the weekend of football, seven not so positive observations and we acknowledge a “zero” from outside the world of football. A reminder, there’s never any Ravens game analysis here. We do plenty of that elsewhere. It’s a trip through the weekend of football via videos, GIFs, memes, pictures, links, Tweets and shtick.

You guys remember when the 15-7-0 was a fun time to gather ’round with family, tell tales and make fun of the Pittsburgh Steelers and Washington Redskins? Man…September was so great. Up yours, October!

15 Positive Observations…

1. I guess as it turns out, new Peyton > old Peyton. Oh and since we’re here, this is a reminder that the only Peyton to have ever been on the cover of Madden was Peyton Hillis. Hehe.

The Broncos WISH they had a better offense. Like…the Ravens’?

Also. The Colts’ punter is WAY tougher.

Also, Wes Welker’s catch didn’t suck.

2. As far as I’m concerned, the Towson Tigers are what’s happening in college football. Yes, the Towson Tigers. Nothing else. STOP FREAKING ASKING ALREADY.

Seriously. Don’t ask me about the other stuff. Just enjoy this.

3. Happy Monday. Florida State just scored. How was work today? Florida State just scored again. What are you thinking about for dinner tonight? Florida State scored again. Florida State scored again. Florida State scored again.

And also, Nick O’Leary put someone on THEIR ASS.

Your response, Tigers fans?

And here’s Kelvin Benjamin looking…EXACTLY LIKE A FLORIDA STATE RECEIVER.

College Gameday was at Clemson Saturday morning, happier times for Bill Murray.

4. The Bengals are in first place by two full games. If this particular 15-7-0 post were a meme, it would be the one with the guy with the hair saying “Aliens”.

And even with THIS?


But apparently AJ Green is ALSO good.

5. How was your Sunday? Mine was fine, you know, other than the watching Harry Douglas on my fantasy football bench and inventing knew curse words to scream aloud in response.

After the Falcons beat the Buccaneers, they sent a hazmat crew into the locker room because THIS IS WHAT IT’S COME TO IN TAMPA.

Perhaps the Falcons could have used a hazmat suit to cover Vincent Jackson.

“The Reality Check” Week 6 NFL Power Rankings

Posted on 09 October 2013 by Glenn Clark

Glenn Clark’s Rankings…

32. Jacksonville Jaguars (Last Week 32)

Would they lose 63-0 to Florida State?

31. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (31)

The Miami (Ohio) job is open if Greg Schiano’s agent wants to get cracking.

30. New York Giants (29)

But only two games out of first place.

29. Pittsburgh Steelers (28)

They’ll probably be very competitive the rest of the season…in Conference USA.

28. Carolina Panthers (21)

I feel like such a fool for buying into them.

27. Minnesota Vikings (27)

I bet with Josh Freeman as quarterback, they end up as high as #20 on this list at some point.

26. Oakland Raiders (30)

Just when you think you’ve got them figured out.

25. St. Louis Rams (26)

You can only get so much credit for beating Jacksonville.

24. Atlanta Falcons (18)

Just cancel fantasy football season already.

23. Washington Redskins (23)

President Obama also thinks they should consider changing their defense.

22. Buffalo Bills (20)

Starting a quarterback from Duke cannot possibly lead to moving further up this list.

21. Houston Texans (16)

Since it will almost certainly be asked, it CAN get worse. It’s just hard to imagine it will.

20. Philadelphia Eagles (22)

Can only play the Giants twice a season unfortunately.

19. New York Jets (25)

I know they’re 3-2, I just can’t believe they’ll be 6-4 in five weeks.

18. Tennessee Titans (11)

You wouldn’t wish Ryan Fitzpatrick upon anyone.

17. Dallas Cowboys (17)

It’s enough to make you think they’ll be okay in that division.
