    Yeah, I agree.... it's pretty grim. JJ12 looked like Cris Carter out there compared with Dickson and Clark.

    With Deonte I'm taking the coaching staff's word for it based on camp reports. It'd be hard to have worse hands than what we saw last night.

    Let's be thankful Marlon can catch and seems to run the right routes. For a rookie he looked solid.

    If he had looked lost out there ... can you imagine?

    If Deonte can get back healthy quickly that will help out so much with WR rotation and overall catching ability. Stokely and the rest of the guys won't get so tired being out there on every play plus when you have Thompson, Smith, and Brown out there, they'll have similar team speed as they had when Jones was there.

    You really see the Ravens going with 4 tight ends and Juice? If Furst comes up it means that either Clark or Bajema is off the team.

    Maybe so; the other more likely option is Clark/Bajema comes down with an injury, put on IR (justified or not) and up comes Furstenburg. That is, if Clark continues to struggle.

    Re: Marlon Brown

    I think Clark will still prove to be an asset. For all his clangers, he caught 7 balls, Dickson caught 1.

    I mean, if Clark comes in off the street, rusty as hell, drops a boatload of balls but still catches 7, what does it say that Dickson has been here going on 4 years and only hauls in 1?

    Dickson was massively outperformed by Clark, even though Clark had a horrible game. I mean... just think about that for a second.

    Clark will not be cut. He will more than likely shake the rust, IMHO and ultimately help the team more than he hurts.

    This. If Dickson doesn't get it by now, he never will. He is what he is - a marginal NFL player, who happens to be our "best" TE at the moment.

    Dickson is garbage. I don't know how you can be an NFL TE and drop passes that hit you square in the hands.

    That is another bone of contention that I have with the Ravens personnel choices. If they would have waited until after last night's game to sign Bajema, then his contract would not have been guaranteed for the season. They only used Bajema for blocking assignments last night anyway. I also thought that Rainey should have made the team. If JJ is going to be such a critical part of the offense, the Ravens needed to have another option to return punts/kick-offs.

    I can understand not tweaking the gameplan in the moment and toward a reliance on a UDFA, but still...

    BigPlayReceiver ‏@BigPlayReceiver 13m
    BAL WR Brown was covered by 2 DEN CBs; both < 6ft. Had 4 recs from 6 trgts, for 16.3 yds & 1 TD. Poor tactical use by Caldwell & Flacco...

    Certainly, Brown will be one the focal points vs. CLE, right? UDFA be damned. He's a starter now.

    BigPlayReceiver ‏@BigPlayReceiver 15m
    CLE's #2, 3 and 4 CBs are each listed 5'9. Shoot me in the face if Brown doesn't get at least 9 targets in week 2
    "On their way to the podium, the Ravens FO is going to collectively step over my dead body and select...Breshad Perriman." -- Me, the day before the Draft

    Settle down. John Harbaugh and Joe Flacco's Baltimore Ravens can beat any team, anywhere.

    Re: Marlon Brown

    I'm glad that Marlon got some play last night. I've been talking him up since we signed him in the offseason and now have my entire office singing his praises. He's going to have some good games and some down games, but I am sure that he may become a long term solution at #2 or #3 WR. Hell, he may just become 1B with Torrey.

    Twitter was losing it last night with someone actually crying that we got rid of Doss and that was our problem. I mean, we have such an all world TE group, that couldn't possibly be the issue. Smh at these ledge sitting fans sometimes.

    When I favored Brown over Jones, some posters focused on my perceived 'hatred' for Jones, without recognizing that much of what I said held truth to it and we saw that last night. It will only get better for Brown.

    Well in JJ's defence he was making middle of the field catches last night. 3 catches on 4 targets is quite solid.
