    Is Pierce definitely ok, or is he one of the guys getting an MRI tomorrow?

    Re: Live steaming from tampa!

    I'm at least a little worried that Jacoby, Doss and Thompson are the guys leading the depth chart behind Torrey right now. None of them are particularly impressive or reliable to me right now. Some of the guys lower on the totem pole stood out as having potential to me. Why is Tommy Streeter so invisible? He has all the physical tools, why can't he do this at the level he needs to in order to be successful? Shame.

    Really, the price is right. The only question is whether we can afford to have a return specialist/ST-coverage player taking a roster spot when we need help at wide-out.
    I never said it was a big mistake. But giving a guy guaranteed money means you likely project him to make the roster. The question is whether the contract will affect the decision as to the roster. Not saying it will or will not, but human nature is such that it might.

    Yeah, the price is right, but the roster spot is what I am talking about. And LQW's price is lower.

    The point is, when trying to predict the 6 WRs we keep, Reed is a big question mark.

    Reed's cap hit isn't enough to make a big stink about. We need players to fill the roster spots. Hopefully plays in another preseason game to get a look at him. I like him, but he could be Mr. Glass.

    Smith is definitely an under the radar pick up. I expect he'll take over the defensive signal caller since he brings a wealth of experience.

    Bynes might start over Brown to start the season. He looked good.

    Streeter caught the only pass thrown to him and noticed he was bracketed on a few plays. I'd like to see him get a few more targets before we write him off. Marlon Brown is making it easy to forget about him though.

    Where was Simon? I admit I didn't see much of the game but was he mentioned?

    Hamilton wants to make the team really bad. We have a lot of depth at OLB.

    Elam looked like a heat seeking missile when attacking the running back.

    Jacoby is who he is. Old dogs don't learn new tricks. Spot duty as a WR and keep running back kicks please.

    I hope Pierce didn't get a serious injury. My impression was he was contacted after he crossed the goal line.

    Laquan made a few nice catches. The young wide receivers were flipped upside down in effectiveness.

    Doss was disappointing.

    Furstenburg made a nice catch in traffic.

    Shiancoe was a nice pick up and will be a weapon this year. I tried to blow him up when we got him and I heard crickets.

    I'm sure the team will be looking at film and there will be some ass chewing. Can't wait for the next game.

    That's what they said when they drafted him. He comes up on the runner faster and
    harder than Pollard and covers better too.

    If he keeps that up he might be the steal of the draft going at the very bottom.

    Another Reed????

    Coleman said on 105.7 that Brown will be impacting by the end of the year
    and just in time for the playoffs. Slow starting but he's learning. He's
    had an excellent camp.

    You can't say Elam was tentative or the game is too big for him. It's nice to see what the hype was about. He dropped Hillis like a domino. And he's still a pup, I can see big things from him.

    It's nice we don't have to rush Brown. I feel pretty good about ILB now, one of the bigger concerns.

    And Tyrod looked as good as I can remember. Pretty cool to see him run the option.

    Michael Irving sure was livid on TV when Jerry passed on Elam. What a dope and
    that was after he said the Girls were trying to emulate the Ravens-lol.

    Tyrod might be a decent backup if Joe ever goes down, lordy forbid. Usually
    you write the season off when you lose the qb for the year but Tyrod might
    give us half a chance like Zeke Bratkowski did for the old Packers as Bart
    Star's long time backup. He used to kill the Colts when Bart was out.

    Ravens feel Brown is faster than Ray was last year.

    They just keep dropping into Ozzie's lap for some reason. We liked
    Cyprien but they were both there and so was Brown in the 2d round. Ozzie
    essential got two first rounders in that draft. He might have taken Brown
    in first round if Elam and Cyprien were gone.

    .
    It's the first time I've seen him pass consistently as well as run well during preseason. Looks like the game has slowed down some for him. He showed signs of maturity last night although he also telegraphed a couple passes.

    Ravens showed pretty good depth last night but it's only game 1 PS.

    So was it Matt Elam or Ihedigbo starting last night?

    Very impressed with Canty and Daryl Smith. The Dline was pushing the pocket every time. Front 7 will be our main strength this year. Run def and pass rush was there. Secondary looked a little shaky in deep coverage, this is mainly due to communication issues I think. Couldn't watch much of the game sadly.

    O looked bad, but I think that was due to an ultra vanilla game plan. Hopefully we'll see more next week.

    LOL - The game never did slow down for Boller all those years.

    With Tyrod and then Elam and IH as you mention below, this shows how deep
    Ravens are. D-line has all that depth too.

    Re: Live steaming from tampa!

    Im not sure how I feel about the game. I guess overall good but i wouldnt say it really changed my opinion much on anybody which i was hoping would happen. WRs still look raw and in consistent. Williams id say was a bright spot. Taylor really seems to zone in on him whenever theyre out there. Ive noticed that the past few years, its as if no matter what thats his first read and usually goes with it. I think commentators even mentioned at one point that he was just a clear out and Taylor still threw it to him as if he wasnt really expecting it. I do feel fine with him being backup though, he looked a lot better with the football. Williams may play himself onto the roster regardless if reed continues to struggle with injuries if he shows signs as a WR. otherwise pretty much what i expected from everybody good and bad.
