    Re: Jamal to be sidelined for rest of preseason



    My mistake. I forgot he came out early in 2000.

    Re: Jamal to be sidelined for rest of preseason

    Even so, at 27 a big physical back is approaching the point where his numbers start to decline.

    ecept this one has missed considerable time with injuries so he is sitll relatively fresh

    Hopefully this is more of a precautionary type sidelining rather then one of an injury that nobody wants to fully disclose yet.
    Seems to me we do that pretty well from time to time.
    We're gonna find out in a few weeks that's for sure.

    In the mean time, I think this should be the Mike Anderson/PJ Daniels show.

    I think we have a pretty good idea what Musa Smith can do, and would just assume keep that under wraps as well!!

    Perfect opportunity to really give Anderson and Daniels some substantial playing time to see what they both have.
    Particurally Daniels since he's the rookie that has no NFL history.

    I find it hard to believe we're going to carry that many running backs (and the 4 in discussion aren't even all of them IIRC), in which case somebody has to go.

    Did you know that the 36 yard screen pass Musa ran was against the first string defense of the Eagles? Musa is performing well against 1st and 2nd team defenses. He is for real.

    Your name change has done such wonders PR. I find myself on your side of things now almost all the time. Hehehehehe

    Seriously, watch the Musa video. He's doing it against the 1st team, and that was McNair that threw the ball to him.

    The thing I think no one was expecting, and I include myself in that group, is that Musa has some JETS in him too. We think of him as the same type of pounding back that Jamal is, but I don't think Jamal in the open space is as fast as Musa is. When he got past the first level of defenders on his touchdown run, he shifted into a whole other gear that I didn't know he had.

    If anything, I think it's time to take him off special teams where he has more of a chance to really get hurt. Let him get snaps during the season. And if this keeps up, Ozzie really has an interesting offseason decision to make.

    Yea, we will.

    Put me in the skeptical crowd on this one.

    Sure it will nice to see both Anderson and Musa get some extra carries in the preseason but Im very leery about what's going on with Jamal.

    This organization has bullshitted about injuries for years now and I don't think they've changed their ways. The report said "at least 2 weeks". That is a red flag for me. Im no chicken little and Im not panicking but this news isn't good at all.

    My problem is that I think they should've rested Jamal more before playing him in the first 2 preseason games. If he's been complaining of pain in the area of the injury, then sit his ass until he's pain free.

    I'd sure as hell be more comfortable with him coming back now after an extra 2 weeks of rest and rehab than wondering if he injured the hip more while playing in some BS preseason games.

    Re: Jamal to be sidelined for rest of preseason

    I don't mind shutting Jamal down, let him get healthy. He is back to his old running style, which is nice. If he can't go week 1 we still have Muuuuusa and MA. And bottom line that is still better than a lot of teams.

    Re: Jamal to be sidelined for rest of preseason

    It seems to me that even if Jamal is out, MA will still be relegated to a 3rd down role. I am not ocnvinced from his history that MA is capable of taking 25-30 snaps a game.

    Assuming Jamal is out for a regular season game, I see the chart looking like this:

    RB - M. Smith, M. Anderson, PJ Daniels

    As for who gets the carries for the rest of pre-season. Give them to MA next week, but I want to see Musa put a hurting on the Deadskin first team D.

    You can never have enough quality depth at running back. The Ravens are very fortunate to be in the situation that they find themselves.

    Where did the "at least 2 weeks" come from. All I have read is that they are shutting him down for the rest of the preseason and he will start practice again before the Tampa game. I am sure he was fine heading into the preseason, and it flared up again, he could play through it, but its just precautionary. No need to keep playing him in meaningless games if his hip is sore, let him rest until we really need him.

    The first report on ESPN said "at least 2 weeks" so that is what I was going on.

    And he was not fine heading into the preseason. That's the whole point IMO.

    He said the injury hasn't gone away so why was he playing in the 1st place? Like I said, I would've rather had him sit out the past 2 games, recover fully, and then play the next 2 preseason games.

    Now we'll have to wait and see if the next 2 weeks are enough for him to get back to 100% and play vs TB in week 1.

    Re: Jamal to be sidelined for rest of preseason

    A few freinds and I saw Jamal last night, One asked
    "So I hear you're hurt now, you look fine"

    His Response was something to the effect of;

    "I'mfine, my leg got tweaked again a little, and it's PRESEASON and I'm a vet, so I get a couple weeks off"

    It was obvious that he was reveling in the fact that he gets a couple weeks off of practice. He assured us 100% by Tampa, if not WEEKS before. My estimation is thatheis probably 80-90% now.

    Now everyone involved was drunk, But it seemed like if they had a regular season game TODAY that he would be playing with little lingering effect.

    It's preseason, they are shuttign him down. No Biggie.

    Re: Jamal to be sidelined for rest of preseason

    His injury worries me a little. After the end of the pre season hope Jamal comes back strong. If he doesn't then how long do we go with him ?

    GO RAVENS
