JBS, unless Joe is in danger of hurting his knee worse, you ride it out with him. He is your franchise quarterback and we saw last week that Tyrod Taylor is far from polished as a passer. Do you really want your season in his hands?
I don't think Caldwell is going anywhere. This is his first full season as a coordinator and obviously it has not gone well, but the Ravens don't make rash decisions like that. Castillo is the one who could be in jeopardy. We will see if the Ravens and Castillo decide to keep this relationship going for another year. If he left he would still be highly sought after, I would think. Has quite the reputation.
I wish I had answers for you, but I don't. Stopping the run is a big part of that and the lack of a pass rush has exposed the defense. They haven't gotten a stop in the red zone since Week 12 against the Jets. How crazy is that?
Justin, that is the biggest issue today. No quarterback would have a chance with the way this line is playing. Flacco hasn't made many plays, but at least he hasn't thrown the ball to the other team. But yes, there will be more changes. Both Monroe and Oher are free agents and there is no way both are back. There is no guarantee Kelechi Osemele will be the same after back surgery. And the Ravens will probably bring in competition for Gino at center. This is their biggest offseason priority.
Not much to report. He had the back surgery and we see him in the facility rehabbing, but they won't let us talk to him. There are no indications that the surgery did not go well, but back surgery is not something to brush off when it comes to offensive linemen.
Trade? No chance. Those guys could all be candidates to get cut, but the cap hits for Ngata and Rice would be tough to swallow and Suggs is the most productive of those three guys right now.
I shouldn't say no chance for a trade, but don't expect anything significant back.
Roy, I think Tyrod is just unproven. The Ravens like him but they won't really know what they have in him until he has to start and Joe is one of the NFL's most durable quarterbacks.
Offensive line but they need to draft a wide receiver early because Jacoby is probably gone.
So two minutes in mop-up duty in a blowout loss is enough to pass judgment on him? Fair enough.
OK, second half is beginning. Try to enjoy it. It doesn't look pretty, but I've learned to never rule this team out.
