Friday Morning’s Crabs and Beer

Posted on 13 November 2009 by Glenn Clark

Here are your weekend picks…..

Ravens 27, Browns 13

It SHOULDN’T be this close. It might be closer. We’ll see if Brady Quinn can do anything.

Virginia Tech 27, Maryland 16

With no offense to Maryland, they’re not as good as Virginia Tech.

Navy 31, Delaware 18

There is an argument that the Midshipmen should be a Top 25 team.

Villanova 41, Towson 14

I hope the Wildcats don’t run up the score more than this.

Thursday Morning’s Crabs and Beer

Posted on 12 November 2009 by Glenn Clark

A couple of things I was told by a member of the Ravens organization yesterday regarding their decision to keep Steve Hauschka…

-They are very pleased with Steve in kickoffs. Even when he hasn’t gotten the best distance, they’ve been happy with the hang time he’s given them to allow their coverage unit to get downfield and make plays.
-They had a feeling Steve was going to struggle on the road. New NFL kickers often struggle to learn stadiums around the league-and how to kick at those stadiums. Steve mentioned that he mis-judged the wind at Paul Brown Stadium and where to aim the kick.
-They WANT Steve Hauschka to be the kicker-not just for this week, but for the rest of the season and the seasons to come. They’ve been willing to give him the benefit of the doubt; but another costly kick could change that.

Tuesday Morning’s Crabs and Beer

Posted on 10 November 2009 by Glenn Clark

Don’t have much time to contribute today. I was surprised by John Harbaugh’s candor yesterday, but it was a refreshing change of pace. I still think he needs to cool down on being so rough around the edges. I know it seems trivial, but I truly believe uptight coaches tend to not handle adversity quite as well.

But good for Harbs for taking responsibility for the team’s struggles, emphatically stating that HE needed to improve, and admitting that he screwed up in making the comments he made about Dallas and Philadelphia.

Now he just has to figure the football part out. No problem, right?

Let’s see what everyone else has to say….

Thursday Morning’s Crabs and Beer

Posted on 05 November 2009 by Glenn Clark

I had the opportunity to go to an advance screening of “The Blind Side” last night at The Charles Theater-thanks to Warner Brothers for the invitation. I have to first say that this movie is going to be absolutely HUGE. It is a perfect Thanksgiving football flick, and as big as it is going to be in Baltimore; it will be big throughout the country as well.

If you’re not familiar-the movie is based on the excellent book of the same name by Michael Lewis. The story chronicles Ravens 1st round pick Michael Oher. The book itself was more about football in general-but the transcendent story of Oher is easily movie-worthy. And while John Lee Hancock’s movie does change certain things about the story (an incident at Ole Miss is moved into Oher’s former home in the Memphis projects; the name of Oher’s Christian school is different, etc.); he does no injustice to the very human aspect of Oher’s journey.

The only shame of the movie is that in trying to keep it a family film-the darkness of Oher’s upbringing is merely referenced, not told vividly. This isn’t to say the movie failed-as the book references that Michael didn’t talk much about his past. The picture painted of Michael’s youth in the book is significantly more frightening than the more family-friendly picture painted by the film.

While the tragedy may not have been fully painted, nothing is taken away from the triumph. I’m going to be honest-if you cry during great sports movies (think “Remember the Titans”); you’re going to cry during this flick. It’s a remarkable story told very well.

The star of the film is clearly Sandra Bullock, whose turn as Leigh Anne Tuohy comes off akin to Julia Roberts’ Erin Brockovich. While this film is more fun and even a bit goofier than the very serious-natured “Brockovich”, your wives and girlfriends will immediately love Bullock’s Tuohy.

It’s not going to win an Academy Award-but it’s not supposed to be that kind of movie. It’s the kind of movie your family can go see at the end of the month when you’re off school/work for 4 days. It’s the kind of movie that you’re going to put on your purple and rally your neighbors to go see. This city is going to LOVE this movie. Whether you’ve read the book or not, you will just eat it up.

Let’s see what everyone else has to say….

Tuesday Morning’s Crabs and Beer

Posted on 03 November 2009 by Glenn Clark

The Maryland basketball season doesn’t TECHNICALLY tip off until next Friday against Charleston Southern; but even an exhibition game tonight has me salivating. I LOVE College Hoops. And for the first time in a few years, I have a real genuine excitement about the long-term potential for this Maryland team. Here’s my thought process….

As far as the ACC is concerned, the Terps do NOT have the talent of North Carolina, and Duke is built better than they are. They have the capability to compete with any team in the league, but they should absolutely finish somewhere between 3rd and 5th in the league-with Georgia Tech, Clemson, Florida State and Wake Forest also in the mix.

This team will need to get more consistent outside shooting from Greivis Vasquez, Adrian Bowie, Cliff Tucker and Sean Mosley to compete for a conference title. Mosley especially might never be a natural shooter, but he at least must be a threat. They’ll need to muscle up inside as well, as Jordan Williams and James Padgett will help-but Dino Gregory and Landon Milbourne will be the guys to start.

And the team will ultimately revolve around Greivis Vasquez. This is his team. As we saw last season, when everything went wrong (remember the home game against UNC), sometimes Greivis could still save things. He’s much more mature than when he came to College Park, and this is his chance to leave a legacy.

I’ll say the Terps finish 4th in the ACC and end up in the Sweet 16. I reserve the right to change my mind anytime between now and March.

Let’s see what everyone else has to say…..
