    Re: Anyone else feeling almost total apathy and disinterest in the Ravens/NFL?



    Yes I for one can say that. I used to tell people it was against my religion to work on sundays because my sundays were planned around the Ravens game. I would plan everything around the game, post pone plans etc... and it just doesn't have the same feel

    4 weeks ago I started a PT job working every Saturday and sundays 2pm-10pm and I never in a million years would have thought I would have done that. Spending family time, watching the game, screaming at the TV last few years watching this train wreck of an offense but it was still my team and football.

    I have spent more time lately watching other teams, and yes it makes our offense look just ridiculous every time we snap the ball. Its not even funny anymore.


    I just would love to see a competent offense on the field for the first time since 2014. But I know that wont happen under this current regime.

    I'm having fun as a "fan of the game" watching TEN, LAR, KCC and PHI...especially the young QBs.


    WRT the home team, I'm tired of banging the same drum.
    I have no faith in either coordinator or Harbs, and it's painful to watch a 10 year vet play like some QB that the Cleveland Browns over-drafted.
    Largely, I'm just looking for flashes of awareness and talent with the youngsters.

    Our style of football, talent analysis, and roster management are pretty low on the fun meter for me.
    Wentz looks amazing.

    I mean its crazy to Watch KC get the ball into space to hill hunt and conley and mismatches with Kelce....

    But Wentz's footwork and pocket awareness is phenomenal. I havent seen someone move around that much in the pocket in a long time

    Quick OT: 6'5 guys shouldn't be elusive like that. I'm absolutely floored with how far he's come in just one off-season. A beat guy I follow was talking him up all summer to point of exhaustion, but dude was spot on. That OL helps a lot too. Philly's about to settle in at the top of the NFC for a good stretch.

    Wentz is good. I like watching Smith in KC this year, Cousins, Mariota, the kid in Tampa. All run efficient explosive offenses.

    Agree. I like KC, I really like watching Washington and Tampa for chunk plays, they love to chuck the ball...

    There is something really special about Wentz. I'm sure Philly will find a way to ruin it, because they are Philly....but If I'm starting a Franchise today....and I have a pick of ANY QB..... I'm probably taking Wentz based off his age, his play and potential upside.

    This may have nothing to do with the thread, but Wentz was there for the Browns taking (2016 draft). They thought another boat load of draft picks were better than having a young QB to develop. Man, that team can't get out of it's own way... Bc

    Re: Anyone else feeling almost total apathy and disinterest in the Ravens/NFL?

    I'm enjoying the NFL. Tonight's game withe Pats and Bucs on looks great on paper. I've seen all the Chiefs games and have enjoyed every one of them. Giants/Eagles and Giants/Bucs were also a ton of fun to watch. The Lions have been worth watching, Seahawks and Cardinals not so much.

    I haven't seen the Bills yet but they've really go me interested based on the highlights. I've only seen 1 Rams game and want more.

    This is all just off of the top of my head. The NFL remains a must see to me. The Ravens have been more like a chore. I enjoyed the first game against the Bengals. As a fan how you could not love shutting out the Bengals with all their healthy guys on the road? It was awesome. The Browns games are never in doubt so that was kind of meh. The other 2 have been horrible. The future does not look enjoyable.

    I will still enjoy the NFL and watch the NFL as I always do. I will still watch all the Ravens games but the fun factor is just not there.

    Great post. You pretty much summed up my thoughts and didn't ramble the way I did.

    I'll be watching Pats Bucs tonight for sure. In Tampa now and living within a couple hours I'm keeping an eye on this young team. Pats rarely lose two in a row so this could be interesting

    The inability to keep the talent they do acquire on the field is part of the demoralization. Football for me is the Ravens: not much interested in following the rest of the League closely or college ball, so I don't even know if the injury rate of the [league-leading IR] Ravens is more or less par for the course in today's NFL. But the allocation of time and money to see 8 home games per year & the occasional out of town or playoff game is not delivering the jollies it used to. I rode the season ticket wave on its way up since 2007. Saw everything except the game in Denver on the Super Bowl 47 run, so I can't complain on that investment. But of late, the come-from-ahead folds in 4Q, the 10 penalties per game, the torn XYZ-CLs, the 8 for 18 for 28yds or whatever. You are right, Iggy Pop: "No Fun."

    Agree. Pats rarely loose 2 in a row, and as far as Thursday Night Football... the better QB almost ALWAYS wins these thursday games.

    Pats Defense has been bad, but if you watch them, alot of them seem to be mental / blown assignments.... Cant they fix it in time for a QB who loves to chuck it deep
