Ravens vs. Bears post-game

: MVP [url=http://www.ravensauthorizedshops.com]www.ravensauthorizedshops.com[/url] , stock up & stock down The first taste of Ravens football ends with a final score of 17-16. As we expected, hype surrounded the quarterbacks, but what we didn’t expect was Kamalei Correa wrecking the Bears.Note: This post is more about the players who are on the roster’s edge. Matt Judon played just fine, but he’s not somebody fighting for a spot.MVP: LB Kamalei CorreaMy goodness, this man went to war. He ripped a catch away for an interception, then sacked the quarterback on three separate occasions. He was darn close to a second pick, too. Maybe he is an outside linebacker after all. . .Stock up:Kaare Vedvik — He kicked off, punted and completed all field goals. Five of his eight punts were inside the 20-yards, too. I highly suggest another NFL team to trade a late pick for the up-and-comer.Robert Griffin III — If not for two ugly drops by Breshad Perriman and Nick Boyle [url=http://www.ravensauthorizedshops.com/authentic-t-shirts]Baltimore Ravens Womens T-Shirt[/url] , his stats read far better than 7/11, 58 yards, one touchdown and one interception.Tim White — Some good catches and solid routes. He was the starting return man for the first half and he’s shaping up to make the roster this season.Gus Edwards — The UDFA from Rutgers posted great running and receiving. He may land on the roster as Kenneth Dixon once again is not on the field.Orlando Brown Jr. — A man against boys when he was on the field, Zeus Jr. bullied pass-rushers all night. There’s some high-flying talent in this draft class which will keep him under the radar, but he’ll be a bright young player for years.DeShon Elliott — Big hits is what the rookie was known for at Texas and he brought the heat early on, forcing a fumble. A young safety is what the Ravens need as Eric Weddle’s on his twelfth NFL season.Chuck Clark — Both young safeties had an impact as Clark came down with the red-zone ‘tipped’ ball. Making the most of your opportunities is important and Clark cashed in.Maxx Williams — Score a touchdown and you be better recognized. He ran a solid red-zone route and didn’t drop a pass.Stock down:Mark Thompson — A rough night for the tailback. He ran into the tackle and allowed a sack, then fumbled the football a series later. Gus took the lead in this roster battle after tonight.Albert McClellan — The veteran linebacker was beat twice, for big plays, including a fullback touchdown pass. He’s known for his special teams value [url=http://www.ravensauthorizedshops.com/authentic-hats]Baltimore Ravens Hats[/url] , but can that be enough for him to stay on the roster?Breshad Perriman — Two catches don’t make up for the dropped pass, which turned into an interception. He’s on the outside looking in.A healthy and successful summer means difficult roster decisions loom for Baltimore The Baltimore Ravens have had an inexplicably tough time keeping their team healthy throughout training camp and preseason the past several years. So far this summer that hasn’t been the case, which means the front office will have some difficult decisions to make in the coming weeks provided they stay the course of unprecedented good health.A big part of the reason why it will be tough to release certain players is the fact that the competition was fiercer than usual. An active free agency period that saw the receiver room rebuilt and a quantity heavy draft led to a refreshingly balanced roster that had battles take place at several different positions over the past few weeks.Head coach John Harbaugh was impressed with how camp played out, and is looking forward to seeing the progress that was made translate into success in the final exhibition games:Having such a successful camp in all of these different facets leads to the champagne problem of not having enough space on the roster to keep certain players they may like. This is especially true in 2018 after they had such a large draft class this past spring.The Athletic’s Jeff Zrebiec expanded on this in a recent article in which he discusses the likelihood of Baltimore having to part with some of these rookies this year:This proves even more complicated by the fact that there are several intriguing late round rookies from this past draft, some of whom already appear to be locks for the final roster. Safety DeShon Elliott appear to be among those few, and after that, it’s really anyone’s guess.Interestingly, fourth round receiver Jaleel Scott hasn’t generated a ton of buzz and looks to be very much on the bubble at this point. Typically it would be out of the ordinary that a fourth round pick at a historic problem position wouldn’t be a lock for the final 53, but with the top four spots taken [url=http://www.ravensauthorizedshops.com/authentic-hoodie]Baltimore Ravens Womens Hoodie[/url] , Scott is duking it out for the sixth spot with guys who provide return value which probably hurts his chances.Zrebiec goes on to speculate that Scott and fellow rookie Jordan Lasley may actually be going head to head for the final receiver spot after whoever wins the return spot:The other primary battle is along the offensive line, where a combination of rookies and unheralded young players are competing to provide depth or maybe even start at some point. Zrebiec writes that Nico Siragusa, Jermaine Eluemunor, Bradley Bozeman, and Greg Senat will ultimately be fighting it out to make the 53.With the latter two being rookies, one would think the odds would fall in their favor. However, Eluemunor showed some promise as a rotational rookie and Siragusa hasn’t gotten much of a fair shake after an injury derailed his chances of playing last year.Finally, this is all made even more complicated by a position that we never would’ve expected to generate as much buzz as it has even six months ago - quarterback. Joe Flacco is the incumbent and will return as the starter, and rookie first rounder Lamar Jackson will be on the team without a doubt. This leaves street signing Robert Griffin III [url=http://www.ravensauthorizedshops.com/authentic-customized]Womens Customized Baltimore Ravens Jerseys[/url] , who came in as a long shot to make the team and has now given John Harbaugh something to think about with some nice performances in practice and preseason games. It helps that Griffin provides the added value of mentorship to Jackson, leaving Flacco with enough space to effectively do his job as the starter.Ultimately, it appears RG3 has done enough at this juncture to make the team in a typical scenario. We’ll see how much it helps him when cut down day arrives. There is plenty of talent at other positions that Baltimore would surely like to hold on to.At the end of the day, there’s really no way to know who will be on this team on September 1st. Big time preseason performances mean little, August heroes often find themselves jobless come the regular season. It’s ultimately a good problem to have, Ravens fans should be knocking on wood that the team will maintain their good health over the next few weeks. If they do, it should mean the end of the preseason will prove much more interesting than it has in many years.
