    Re: Bobby Rainey - In retrospect, a mistake?



    Hey, while we're doing this, can someone dig up an old thread about how bad the FO messed up in letting Derek Anderson go?

    You don't think the formations the team is actually running is relevant?

    Not really. Not in this thread.

    Thompson has what...maybe 15 snaps this year? Yes, they could use him on the field in multi receiver sets, but they really aren't.

    Who is to say that they couldn't have gotten Rainey and Rice on the field at the same time? I realize that is highly unlikely, but it isn't like that is totally outlandish. It's not like it hasn't been done before.

    My main point was that saying because Rice and Rainey are similar doesn't mean that keeping him would have been a detriment.

    Has Ryan Jensen seen the field at all? Seems like they could have sent him to IR and kept Rainey, which may have been more useful.

    I just think this thread seems like a tad bit reactionary to the guy having a great game against a shit D. Shit, next week Rainey will probably break his foot and go on IR along with Doug Martin and Mike James.

    Nah, he'll break Rice's all time rushing yardage.

    If Thompson isn't injured.

    Again with the reverse hyperbole. NO ONE is saying he's the next Barry Sanders. What some of us ARE saying is that HE'S BETTER THAN ANYONE THE RAVENS HAVE BROUGHT IN TO BE A BACKUP. And he was already ON the team.

    He had a great game. There is no way to know if he would be successful behind this line other than pure speculation. But I wish him well.

    Re: Bobby Rainey - In retrospect, a mistake?

    The one thing I will say is that when I saw how stuck in sand Rice was on some of those passes out of the backfield, or reflect I should say, you do think that someone like Rainey could have done more with those, given Rice's injury issues.

    That makes more sense. However, he's had more than just one great game. He's had two solid preseasons; he showed he could be effective in the return game on STs; he already knew the system; and in essence, what some of us are saying is that the Ravens tossed out the window a cheap insurance policy who could have helped the team this year, and potentially in years to come. Looking at the horrible run game, the injuries to Rice and Pierce (and the h/o injuries to Pierce), and the close margin of error by which the Ravens have lost key games this year, it's certainly reasonable to conclude that Rainey could have helped this team more than any of his replacements, who have done absolutely nothing. Especially when considering that all that was needed to make him part of the 53 man roster was to put him there instead of Trawick. Or Jensen.

    Can't disagree with anything there, and I'm sure the staff wishes they had him as an option now. Then again they might not use him if they had him

    Fair enough.
