      UPDATED: MESSAGE BOARDS CLOSING AFTER DRAFT   03/08/2017

      After careful consideration, we have decided that we will sunset our message boards after this year's NFL Draft. Since we opened our boards a decade ago, the digital landscape has greatly evolved. While we understand there remains a smaller group of highly-engaged fans who participate in conversation in our forums, a significant amount of the dialogue about our team and our games has migrated away to other social media platforms over the past several years. Our message boards will remain up and running through Friday, May 5th, and will be removed on May 6th. We recognize that this change may upset avid members of our community. However, we look to utilize our time and resources to focus on how we can best connect with our fans across an array of digital/social outlets. If you are not already engaging us and other members of the Ravens Flock on our Facebook page, Instagram account, through Twitter or Snapchat, we invite you to follow us on those channels and continue to participate in our social communities. In addition, the commenting feature on our website articles will remain intact. Members will be able to continue using their boards account to log in and share their thoughts at the bottom of every news story. We’d like to thank all the Flock members and our moderators who have brought thoughtful conversation to this space and made our community great for the last 10 years. Ravens Social Media Hub »

So We Threatened To Use Wildcat in the AFFCG

6 posts in this topic

This is the first I heard of that but Tedy Bruschi said it on EPSN's webpage.

[b]Mike:[/b] Another aspect of note with the Ravens is the usage of the no-huddle offense. That's a little bit of a change for them. The offensive line isn't a strong suit.

[b]Tedy:[/b] And building off what we saw last week against the Cardinals with cornerback [url="http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/_/id/13980/patrick-peterson"]Patrick Peterson[/url] in the Wildcat (what they call "Pat-Cat") [b]-- last season in the first quarter of the AFC Championship Game, during the entire TV timeout at 12:49, the Ravens had backup quarterback [url="http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/_/id/14163/tyrod-taylor"]Tyrod Taylor[/url] out on the field[/b]. They wanted to see how the Patriots would react to seeing that. When the cameras came back, and the timeout ended, Joe Flacco ran back out because I don't think the Ravens liked what they saw. But it's still there, and with them seeing the "Pat-Cat" formation, maybe they use that a little bit instead of just having it as a ploy.

Did anyone else know this? Does anyone think we'll see any wildcat action with Tyrod this season???

I agree. Changing up the looks to try and catch someone off guard is always worthwhile but I don't want it to become something very common.

Interesting to say the least..Would have been fun to see for a play or two.

Yeah, funny how things like that happen behind the scenes. I really want to know why they backed out of it. Probably just didn't think it was the right time.
