Tuesday Morning’s Crabs and Beer

November 25, 2008 | Glenn Clark

Tuesday Top 7….

7-Derrick Mason

In the first half; he was Flacco’s comfort level. He was the safety net. Not his best game; but thank God he’s there to keep Flacco safe.

6-Haloti Ngata

He didn’t do the amazing; he’s just regularly amazing.

5-Jared Gaither

Didn’t think he was gonna play; but he ended up being stellar.

4-Mark Clayton

Not a great game overall; but the TD really broke things open.

3-Le’Ron McClain

If he can keep doing that in the 4th quarter; the Ravens will continue their 77-0 dominance of the end of games.

2-Jarrett Johnson

The play was amazing; but JJ was outstanding from start to finish.

1-Ed Reed

Is there really any argument?
