I’m tearing my hair out over these Bills whom I’m afraid are paper tigers. Soooo much went wrong yesterday. They should have had that game against the Browns but management and timeout bunglings along with the 11th fumble of the year by QB Allen brought them down. They simply cannot score enough and have no big play capability. I don’t even count on a Miami win this week with the Dolphins taking 2 straight victories.
PPaw and Patti, you guys are looking good. These Ravens are exceptional and very very exciting!November 11, 2019 at 6:51 pm #56454
I really like this kid. I just hope he stays like he is and doesn’t turn into Cam Newton press conference after the Super Bowl if something goes wrong.
Casey, I was shocked the Bills lost. Allen’s fumbles are akin to what we went through with Minshew whose ball handling skills need to be improved.
The Pack eked out a W. There were some bad ref calls on both sides of the ball. I don’t think McCaffrey made it in because of positioning of him in relation to the lineman who was pulling him forward. LOL, he reminded me of a bad Vaudeville act getting yanked off the stage. The only thing missing was the cane.
We’ll see how the Jags do with Foles. We have to run the table to have a shot at the playoffs.November 12, 2019 at 1:11 am #56460
but a humble genius believes with all his heart that there is no "I" in "TEAM".
Loved the way we played the Bengals, and Greg Roman is one hellova’ OC! But I will say, Lamar Jackson is not only the real deal, but what I love about him and the team is they don’t get carried away too far with winning week to week, but instead always looking for ways to beat the next team they play.
Some new tricks in that bag with this win that were amazing, and the acquisition of our new cornerback, Marc Peters, was so thrilling. He already has two interceptions, both returned for touchdowns. Now that’s something I loved seeing since the days of Eddie Reed. Also, we signed a new kick/punt returner acquired from the Kansas City Chiefs, so I’m waiting for him to thrill us because I’ve been waiting since last year for us to draft or trade for this player, and I understand he’s extremely fast.
Lamar Jackson, please stay healthy, because the NFL hasn’t seen anone like you in a very long time, probably since Michael Vick, and I pesonally thing you are probably better than Vick was. The vision this kid has for not only the game, but the playing field, boggles my mind. He can take the snap, do a light sidestep one way or the other, and in that instant, will sweep the field with his eyes noting where each and every player is or will be before he even decides on the play, and if he doesn’t see one, then he’ll just take off himself. Love this kid!
Still have some tough ones coming up, but my confidence is growing stronger and stronger with each passing week.
That was a horrible loss for the Bills, casey, but I’m hoping it was more mental mistakes than anything else. Look forward to our meeting in December!November 15, 2019 at 3:01 pm #56531
Did anyone catch this in the Browns/Steelers game last night? I mean Myles Garrett totally lost it and yanked off Rudolph’s helmet and wailed it against his bare head. A melee broke out and no one had ever seen anything like this. I’m surprised Mason didn’t get seriously injured. MG better get suspended at least the rest of the year. And this is a guy who pens poetry off the field?November 15, 2019 at 5:23 pm #56535
and that was certainly one of the worst melees I have seen. You can bet Garrett will be suspended, perhaps for the rest of the season even; however, there are a number of other players who also warrant a suspension, including Rudolph. I’m not taking Garrett’s side by any means, but Rudolph looked to me like he knew his team was fully behind him, as witnessed by the way they all piled on Garrett, but he did get up and go back after Garrett again instead of walking away, seeing that there were nothing but Steelers pounding Garrett, and to me it looked like Rudolph was instigating the fight to continue. In any case, it was a real black eye on the NFL and we are going to be hearing about this one for quite some time. It was definitely a horrible display of unprofessionalism in the NFL.November 15, 2019 at 6:07 pm #56537
Saw the lowlight this morning. Dang, what a mess. I think there were several contributing factors.
1. Rudolph had thrown multiple picks and was frustrated.
2. Players are taught to play hard until the game is over. I’m not sure if Garrett knew Rudolph had thrown the ball prior to wrapping him up. We don’t know where his eyes were directed as his head should have been down when starting the tackle. If he didn’t know the ball had been thrown, he was trying to make a play. If he was aware the ball was gone, he should have let up.
3. Rudolph grabbed at Garrett’s helmet first. He also was pushing Garrett away with his foot which has been reported to have gone "night in the ruts" to use an Aerosmith album title.
4. After Garrett (with Rudolph’s helment in hand) was pulled away, Rudolph went after him again. I’m wondering if anything (such as THE word) was said at that point to trigger the swinging of the helmet.
I’m definitely not condoning Garrett’s actions, but both parties bear responsibility for the escalation after an unnecessary tackle. It’s been reported he has already been suspended for the rest of the year. Rudolph needs to sit for at least a game.
Like you said, it’s definitely a black eye on the NFL and was a disgraceful display.November 16, 2019 at 3:04 pm #56540
the whole incident I do heartily agree Mason was also to blame and I hope he gets a suspension along with a fine. I also concluded the whole shebang wasn’t quite as horrendous as I anticipated. But it’s so lucky Rudolph didn’t get a concussion or worse.November 16, 2019 at 5:25 pm #56543
with no suspension whatsoever, which is not fair. He was instigating the continuance of the Steelers ganging up on Garrett. Again, Garrett was definitely wrong and deserved what he got, and yes, Rudolph did try to pull his helmet off first when Garrett had him on the ground. Maybe the Steelers will fine him but the NFL did not. Personally, I think he should have at the very least gotten a one-game suspension. Tomlin refused to make any comment on the incident, which tells me he knew Garrett wasn’t the only one at faultNovember 16, 2019 at 11:12 pm #56544
If Rudolph hadn’t gone after Garrett after the Steelers o-lineman had pulled Garrett away, the helmet swing and ensuing melee never would have happened.November 17, 2019 at 3:20 pm #56548
with refs that the first guy who initiates the foul gets off while the responder gets the penalty. How often have we seen that? I thought I heard Rudolph would get at least a fine too and hope he does.November 18, 2019 at 7:25 pm #56549
Finally a complete no sweat victory for my guys. 4 TDs for Josh Allen and 129 for John Brown (Patti, thanks again for letting us have this ohso reliable receiver). And the Ravens continue to totally impress and I am seriously thinking SB possibilities. Sorry PowerPaw on the Jags.
BTW, I feel ever so bad for the terrific Bama QB Tua T for that tragic injury. Am no Tide fan but Tua is so entertaining, should go top one or two in draft and a wonderful young man off the field as well.November 18, 2019 at 11:02 pm #56550
I knew he would. As I mentioned to you before, I was sorry to see him leave the Ravens; he has great instincts and if a good throw is coming his way, you can bet he’ll be ready with a great set of hands. Look forward to seeing you not only in December, but in the playoffs as well. Fingers crossed!
As for our Ravens, what can I say that hasn’t already been said. All 3 phases played great against what I would call a slaughter of the Texans. Even Deshaun Watson said he felt Lamar should get this year’s MVP; however, with half a season to go, and since I don’t have a crystal ball to foresee the future, I’ll save my vote at least until December football is over. Finally, our D is BACK and ready to play, and play they did. 7 sacks of a terrific QB who is quite the scrambler himself; however, he has to be, because it seemed like on most of their plays, all of their receivers were covered. Lamar doesn’t do well with praise, and considers his team a "brotherhood" — such a terrific young man whose talent doesn’t go unnoticed this season by all, including not only his competition, but the media as well. Great game. Now, we’re off to see if our luck and our skill continues when we face the Rams next; but, honestly, if we can stay healthy, I’m not afraid to face anyone now! LOL!November 18, 2019 at 11:17 pm #56551
What a sorry weekend event that was. I’m all for Kap’s right to protest and even thought the hoopla over his kneeldown was overblown. But the antics of the weekend plus the blatantly extreme wearing of that shirt that read “Kunta Kinte” makes me wonder how high on the agenda is the QB’s desire to return to the NFL. Comparing his own situation to Alex Haley’s character who was a slave and a gravely mistreated one at that – really Colin??November 19, 2019 at 7:52 am #56553
he’s a chronic complainer and the NFL would be better off to stay the hell away from him. I don’t think what he pulled moving the event and crying because the event wasn’t scheduled for a Tuesday when more NFL people like owners, managers and GMs could be available to watch him show how "ready" he was to get back in the game was just the tip of an iceberg bigger than what the NFL needs today. They have enough problems as it is without his B/S!!!!! JMO!November 19, 2019 at 12:34 pm #56554
Go find Stephen A. Smith’s video about it. He was spot on. If he really wanted to play football he could have gone and proven himself in the CFL or even arena football. When he wore socks depicting cops as pigs, it was the last straw for me. They need to quit giving him attention and let him go away and be miserable.
