    Re: Doss and Dickson



    Doss has been a very pleasant surprise in a very thin receiving corps. His ability to be an explosive punt and kick return guy in the absence of Jacoby has been so important as well.

    Re: Doss and Dickson

    Not only has Doss been a decent receiver, he is contributing nicely as a punt returner.

    Re: Doss and Dickson

    its like the switch came on for Doss i'm not ready to eat crow yet until he plays clutch..as far as dickson he is buried so far in the shit house its gonna take a few more games of him doing that consistently to make me remotely start thinking any different.

    I think this is key. He's been a different player since we cut him and brought him back. I think some of it is the kick in the ass; and I think some of it has been having a defined role as a contributor. That punt-return TD was huge for his confidence; and once he had a defined role that gave him some swag, he was able to build on that and start making other plays.

    With some players, maybe a lot of players, confidence is a huge factor.

    I don't feel this way about Ed. I remember a couple years ago, when he didn't have the drop problems. He was never Mr. Consistent, but he was solid and made some big plays. I feel like his head is just not right, and if he could fix that, he could turn this year around in a hurry.

    He does do one thing well that no one else on this team besides Torrey can do: beat single coverage.

    Re: Doss and Dickson

    Its one game and I'm not about to get crazy and expect this every week. But that said I'm glad they showed up yesterday because without their contribution we might well be looking at a 2 game losing streak with the Packers coming into town.
    They hate us..... but they want to BE us. (.... or at least poach all our players/coaches/FO people!)

    Re: Doss and Dickson

    I think it was a wake up call for Doss because no team picked him up. I like seeing the progression of Doss and Thompson. If they keep performing they will be valuable members of the receiving corp on top of being very good returners.

    Re: Doss and Dickson

    I have a theory on Dickson: he can't catch high velocity passes. Seems he can catch balls that are floated to him. That reception yesterday reminded me of the TD reception against polamalu in the home opener vs Pitt a few years ago. I think he needs the ball floating to him instead of on a line.

    Re: Doss and Dickson

    As others have said, it was always mental problems that hurt Doss, and this looks like a textbook example of a guy getting a fire lit under him and responding. Physically he was always ready to play in this league, but he was held back by being soft and lackadaisical. At this point, he looks like a totally different player and I think it's all in his preparation and attitude.

    I've been as hard on him as anybody in this forum but quite frankly I don't think there is a Raven player I'm more proud of right now than Tandon Doss, with the possible exception of Terrell Suggs.

    Yeah, I've never been so happy to be proven wrong about a guy I was giving grief all through the pre season, so far. I hope he continues to make me look like a dumb ass hater.

    And maybe Torrey Smith. He's just such a great person, and a football player. He really is a great GREAT story in Baltimore.

    That's exactly how I feel about him as well.



    Funny I tweeted this at about 12:30 before the game

    Both Dickson and Doss should be listening to Phil Collins " Ive been waiting for this moment" right now. #balloutofcontrol today fellas!

    I'll try not to jump down Doss' throat when he fumbles away a PR, b/c the way he holds that ball, it will happen.
    He's gotta get coached up on that nonsense rights-now

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