Several views on many items, all in 50 terms or much less:

Absolutely everyone is authorized an viewpoint, but I laugh when I go through/listen to that the Ravens “have a choice to make” on Lamar Jackson deserving a new contract. He has a 30-7 history as a starter and has won two division titles and a playoff recreation by age 24. No determination needed.

The contract extension for tight conclusion Nick Boyle, introduced Friday, indicates his great importance to the offense, but it also is a sign of the organization’s have faith in in him, as Boyle is continue to recovering from the knee damage that ended his 2020 season. The Ravens clearly feel he’ll absolutely recuperate.

Specified the uncertainty at outdoors linebacker with so many pending free brokers, retaining Pernell McPhee on a just one-yr offer would make terrific sense. He dealt with a heavy snap load this season, delivered in huge video games and led in the locker room. He is quick to imagine as component of the resolution.

It truly is rather a testomony to the typical caliber of coaching at the Below Armour Effectiveness Heart that Head Coach John Harbaugh’s 2020 employees of assistants has hence significantly made one particular head mentor (David Culley, Houston Texans) and a few unit coordinators (Joe Cullen, Jaguars Mike Macdonald, Michigan Jesse Minter, Vanderbilt).

It really is wholly unfair to suggest, as some have, that Culley is acquiring employed because he related so effectively with Deshaun Watson at the 2020 Professional Bowl. He is acquiring employed because he is an outstanding prospect with many years of knowledge. Watson reportedly desires out so their romance is irrelevant.

I sniffed the scent of evolution when GM Eric DeCosta acknowledged additional groups run offenses in which the quarterback’s initially occupation is to get rid of the ball immediately and not get sacked. You even now require a go hurry, DeCosta claimed, but prioritizing coverage in excess of strain is turning into a factor.

The Ravens have extra than a very little in common with just one of the Tremendous Bowl teams. The Tampa Bay Bucs had been 7-5 in early December, gained their remaining frequent-season video games and then went on the street as a wild-card qualifier and received their first-round playoff match. Audio common?

After Harbaugh and DeCosta referenced it, I checked the Ravens’ league-lower overall of go attempts in 2020. Without a doubt, their common of 25 for each game was 10 under the league common. It is really no surprise, but if nearly anything, the Ravens need to have to toss extra to force defenses to engage in them a lot more straightaway.

Maintain in intellect: When requested how to go about bettering the passing recreation in 2021, DeCosta commenced by declaring, “1 of the things we have to do is get better up entrance with move defense.” I believe he intended additional than just having tackle Ronnie Stanley again from personal injury.

In his first yr as a starter, security DeShon Elliott created a robust scenario for a new contract. He ranked fourth on the team in solo tackles. Only just one player on the protection (Chuck Clark) played more snaps. His rookie deal expires soon after up coming season. Time to get active.

A way-far too-early prediction for 2021: J.K Dobbins will surpass 1,000 speeding yards for the period. He turns 23 in December, so he’s a great deal youthful than the Ravens’ two most modern thousand-property rushers (at operating again). Mark Ingram II was 30 in 2019 and Justin Forsett was 29 in 2014.
