Jim Irsay said nothing wrong this week

Posted on 17 October 2013 by Drew Forrester

It’s remarkable how hilariously “obvious” the media can be in this country.

This Jim Irsay-Peyton Manning saga is a perfect example of that statement.

Someone asked Irsay a question about Manning.  He answered it.  He said nothing wrong — and far be it from someone in Baltimore to defend an Irsay.

It’s unreal these days how you’re not allowed to “speak the truth”, even when asked an “obvious” question like the one Irsay was asked about Manning.

And then, when the media does ask an “obvious” question, they ridicule the reply and pimp it as “disrespect” to sell newspapers or magazines or get you to watch or listen to a certain program on the air.

The reality in Indianapolis?  For as great as they were in the Manning era, the Colts underachieved on the field when you go back and look at the totality of their successes.

More reality?  Much like the Ravens did with Ray Lewis in Baltimore, the Colts handed over their franchise to Manning and said, “Do with it what you want…”  And, of course, Manning was sensational in Indianapolis, like Lewis was here in Charm City.

The reality about Ray Lewis, like Manning, is that his time in Baltimore wasn’t “perfect”.  But, it was certainly substantial enough for all of us to admit the obvious — without Ray Lewis in purple from 1996-2013, the Ravens franchise isn’t where they are today.  The same can be said in Indy.  Without Peyton Manning, the Colts aren’t where they are today.

All that said, Jim Irsay was simply telling the truth when he said – paraphrasing – “you like all the numbers and scoring but what you really want are more rings.”

That’s all true.

It was code word for:  ”We sold our soul for Peyton and gave him as many offensive toys we could…and while we piled up a bunch of points and made the games exciting for our home fans, that one-sided philosophy didn’t translate to multiple titles.”

You can almost flip the sides of the ball and say the same thing for the Ravens and Ray Lewis during his time here.  The Ravens did get a second title with Ray in the fold, but he was essentially a part-timer with a bad arm and deer antler spray on his breath by the time the final whistle blew in New Orleans last February.  Ray, though – much like Peyton – pulled more than his fair share of the weight when he was in Baltimore.  And the club responded by giving him the keys to the franchise.  When Ray spoke, everyone listened…and rightfully so.  Lewis earned that sort of respect with his play on the field and his leadership in the locker room, but the one-sided approach in Baltimore – defense over offense – only produced two Super Bowl trips from 1996 until the end of the 2012 season.  From ’99 through ’11, the one sided approach in Indy produced the same number of trips to the Super Bowl as the Ravens had — two.

Reality — In Indianapolis, they brushed up against greatness a lot when Peyton Manning was there but weren’t quite successful enough overall.  One Super Bowl ring proves that.

And there was nothing at all wrong with the way Jim Irsay commented on it.

He told everyone the obvious, anyway.

When you win one, you want two.

If you win two, you want three.

And so on.

Bovada keeps Ravens’ Super Bowl odds at 33/1

Posted on 10 October 2013 by WNST Staff

Courtesy of Bovada, (www.Bovada.lv, Twitter: @BovadaLV).

 

“It is not a good sign for the future when any team can be four touchdown underdogs in a game as Jacksonville is this week, but it does make it challenging to post lines for a team like the Jaguars. Looking ahead, it is very doubtful they will be greater than 20 point underdogs again, but it’s not impossible depending on how some of their next games play out. San Francisco in a couple weeks could reach that mark, but the game is being played in London so a few points may be shaved off as it is a neutral field. As of right now, the Jags would not be favored in any game this season. In terms of this weekend’s game against the Broncos, it seems that the huge spread has bettors scared a bit, which we normally see when we post spread upwards of 17 points, but two thirds of anyone who dares touch this game seems to be siding with Denver.”

Kevin Bradley, Sports Book Manager, Bovada.lv

Bovada moves Ravens’ SB odds to 28/1

Posted on 25 September 2013 by WNST Staff

Courtesy of Bovada, (www.Bovada.lv, Twitter: @BovadaLV).

 

“Co-Super Bowl favorites going into the season, the 49ers at 1-2 have now seen their odds double up to 12/1, while Denver remains a favorite at 7/2. The Chiefs have been one of the biggest movers with odds cutting in half to 25-1 while the Giants are 75-1. Maybe you would think at 0-3 that the Giants should be a bit higher, but considering the strength (or lack thereof) of that division and if they get a couple wins a row, they could be right back in the mix.”

Bovada drops Ravens Super Bowl odds to 33/1

Posted on 12 September 2013 by WNST Staff

Courtesy of Bovada, (www.Bovada.lv, Twitter: @BovadaLV).

 

“We have already made a few slight adjustments to our Super Bowl Odds after Week 1. No team has seen a bigger drop in odds than the Philadelphia Eagles going from 50-1 to 28-1 and if they win as 7.5 point favorites at home to the Chargers this Week, I see us moving those odds to under 20-1 and making them legit Super Bowl contenders. In turn, the Steelers, who I was not big on going into the season proved me right last week and after one week are already 50-1 and taking no money.”

RAVENS LOSE BRAGGING RIGHTS EARLY

Posted on 09 September 2013 by Tom Federline

The NFL Kickoff Celebration last Thursday evening simply just started off all wrong. First and foremost the game was not in Baltimore. Ohhhhhh, we will let Keith Urban sing on a barge for you and set up a few tents and call them the NFL Village, but no game. The NFL schedules the reigning Super Bowl Champs “kickoff game”, to be played on a Thursday night in conflict with another professional sports team schedule, against a team you upset in the playoffs on their home turf. Hey Baltimore, hey MLB, here’s the deal, we know your schedule is already set, change it or go to Denver. How wrong was that? Wasn’t the 2012 opening game on a Wednesday night (Giants-Cowboys)? Orioles were away on Wednesday. What’s up NFL? Second, NFL football is played beginning at 1:00pm, on Sunday afternoons. Not on Thursday nights. I do not watch football on Thursday, unless it is Thanksgiving. If the NFL wants to put on a show, then do it Monday Night, one game and start the pre-game at 7:00. Conclude the Kickoff Weekend showcasing the Super Bowl winner and their home city. I do not know the whole story behind the scheduling deal, but the Orioles, White Sox, MLB and the NFL should have worked it out. Baltimore was not given it’s due.

After swallowing the pill that the Ravens are NOT opening up at home, I turn on the tube to hear Bob Costas continually reminding us – the game is NOT being played and how Denver has been preparing for this game since their “surprising” loss to Baltimore in the playoffs. I also am not a fan of what the 30 commentators are predicting for the 2013 season for 2 hours. Screw the pagentry, “Let’s Get it Started” – (Black Eyed Peas). It’s 8:20 and I am ready for some football – BANG, time to screw with the Ravens again, potential storm rolling through, maybe some lightning – 40 minute delay in start of game. Visions of the “power outage FIX” from the Super Bowl dance through my head. I fully understand to be prepared for the worst and safety first. I also fully understand that it is mandated that all professional stadiums be provided with lightning protection in an attempt to gaurd against a storm tragedy. You have to err on the side of caution, but the delay at that time, just piled on another negative in the prelude to a disastrous night.

The Ravens were walking into the Broncos corral and there was no room for any Raven birds. The Ravens held their own in the first half. The 20 million dollar man came out respectable. But then we got to witness the “Rocknut Play of the first half”, Brynden Trawick – blowing up Jacoby Jones. How you run into your own man on a punt return is a total rocknut move. He did not just take out the Ravens kick returner, not just the 3rd place contestant on Dancin’ With the Stars, he took out the Ravens #2 wide receiver, It wasn’t just a glancing blow, it was an all out full speed, lapse of concentration, blow up. Jones may be out for 2 months or the year. Dallas Clark dropping that TD catch at the end of the half didn’t help. Michael Oher getting his ankle rolled on, also didn’t help. All more negatives leading up to………….

The second half. That was down right embarrassing. The embarassment could have been delayed, but the tsunami named Manning was coming. It could have been delayed if…. Horribaugh listened to his cornerback, Corey Graham and thrown the “non-challenge flag”. Welkers dropped “catch”. It probably would have not changed the outcome, but it could have changed the sequence of events that followed in that 3rd quarter.

For Horribaugh to say the next day, “he never saw a replay” or “the replay was to slow”, is a cop-out. Horribaugh and his coaching staff, blew it. From that point on, the floodgates opened, the defenses weakness was exposed, the offensive line was truly o-ffensive and the Ravens imploded. Game over. Reigning Super Bowl Champs bragging rights over.

Wait-a-minute, the Ravens weren’t the only ones embarassed. We have to acknowledge the “Rocknut play of the 2nd half”, which went to the Bronco cat who dropped the ball prior to the goal line on the non-pick-6. A successful crossing of the goal line on that one, would have just made the debacle even worse.

Ravens need a lot of work. If they don’t do anything with the o-ffensive line and that vulnerable defensive backfield, it’s going to be an ugly year. If they remain status quo, the 20 million dollar man which I read works out to $170,000.00/per day, may have trouble earning his pay. A few questions: 1. Who will rise to be the new leader on defense? 2. Can Yanda pull o-ffensive line together? 3. When will Ray be back to coach? Hey Johnny, miss those coat-tails yet? 4. The real reason why Anquan Boldin was let go? It’s gonna be a long year.

D.I.Y.

Bovada gives Cowboys better odds to win Super Bowl than Ravens

“Super Bowl odds have fallen into place with the season a few days away and Denver and San Francisco remain co-favorites at 6-1.

The Bears and Cowboys have seen significant action the last couple weeks and have both dropped to 25-1 and at this point are two of the biggest losers for the book.”

In this I explain my role(?) in Postergate 2013. It’s…weird.

In this I explain my role(?) in Postergate 2013. It’s…weird.

Posted on 28 August 2013 by Glenn Clark

Perhaps you’ve heard about an awkward moment on “The Reality Check” Tuesday on WNST. Then again, perhaps you haven’t.

Admittedly, I didn’t know a thing about “Postergate” until roughly 6pm Tuesday. We had a great edition of “The Reality Check” and as we were winding down I started seeing some rumblings on Twitter about a Denver sportscaster going after Joe Flacco posters which had been displayed around The Mile High City in the lead-up to the NFL Kickoff Game next Thursday night.

At the top of this story is an example of the biggest Flacco banner, hanging at Sports Authority Field.

When I found out that the sportscaster in question was CBS Denver’s Vic Lombardi, I told my producer Ryan Chell that he should give him a call. My thought in that moment was that perhaps we could have a fun conversation about the weird nature of what was going on. Ryan made the call, Lombardi said he could come on at 6:30 and I agreed to stay on-air late to facilitate the chat.

In the moments after learning he would come on, I started asking listeners for suggestions about good Denver jokes I could make. Legalizing weed, Peyton Manning’s neck, Rahim Moore and the elevation all seemed like fairly harmless topics that could make fun a fun debate.

As I continued to do my research about what had happened in Denver, I stumbled upon Lombardi’s Twitter account. While there, I read a Tweet I didn’t find to be funny at all.

Perhaps people outside of our city think this type of thing is hilarious. I mean, there are some twisted people in this world. I don’t. I don’t think there’s anything remotely funny about the fact that 150 people have been murdered in this city in 2013. I find it to be terribly disturbing.

In fact, I find it to be disturbing in the exact same way I found it to be terribly disturbing when a gunman walked into a Denver movie theater in 2012 and murdered 12 people and injured another 70. I didn’t laugh once about that. I’d like to think no one else did either.

For the purposes of full disclosure, I read this Tweet from Lombardi just before Ryan was set to call him for his appearance. On-air, I suddenly said “I’m not sure this is a good idea.” I realized that it would be almost impossible for me to have any “fun” in the conversation because I was so bothered by what Lombardi had Tweeted.

Instead, something else happened. I don’t exactly know how to explain it. The words that come to mind are along the lines of “freight train”. I haven’t been able to transcribe the whole thing, but I’d encourage you to take a listen here.

Whoa.

I appreciate Alex Strouf for reminding me late Tuesday night of what might have been my best line in the whole thing.

“You are a grown man who defaced posters, and you’re calling me a douche.”

Oh, right. If you listened, you’ll know that at one point Lombardi called me a douche. That happened.

For what it’s worth, Lombardi later offered SOME level of an apology for the absolutely uncalled for references to crime in Baltimore.

I will apparently be appearing on Lombardi’s show on The Fan in Denver Tuesday morning (10am hour EST). I told him I wouldn’t appear unless he reiterated the apology on-air for the people of Denver to hear. He suggested I owed apologies as well, I have absolutely no idea what for-but if I come up with something I’ll pass it along.

People have mentioned to me that if the Ravens had hosted the game (as they should have as defending Super Bowl champs had it not been for a scheduling conflict), it would likely mean that there would instead be Tom Brady posters around Charm City promoting a Ravens-Patriots matchup. I will admit that I probably wouldn’t be okay with it. I’ll also admit that as an adult, I probably wouldn’t have been the one taking duct tape and markers around town.

At the end of the night, all I can keep thinking is “this is all so stupid”. An apparently respected broadcaster melted down on my radio show Tuesday afternoon about posters. For some reason, he decided to take his anger out on Baltimore instead of the NFL, who decided to post the banners-or the Broncos and city of Denver, who clearly agreed to have the banners put up.

But I guess it made for some great radio.
