      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 »

End around

Hey man, we could run end arounds 50% of the time, but if we win like we did today and Caldwell call the type of game he called today in the process, I could care less!

Can we please stop bashing the end around from here on out. Just about every team has it in the playbook and we have run it successfully before. I remember people hating it because it was the only way the ball got in the hands of our speed guy a couple years ago who i believe was Stallworth who had more rushes than catches. Please dead this issue.

They work when used right (just like multiple receiver sets). The problem is, was, and will always be that Cam is an absolutely terrible situational play-caller.

Exactly. Cam didnt utilize Stallworth's speed in the passing game as a deep threat. The play was not the problem, Cam was.

This is the first time Caldwell has run it...its in everyone's playbook that has some sort of fast WR. I agree with The Raven.

When the play happened, Torrey stopped running going towards the sidelines and got hit pretty hard. I wonder what he was thinking?

An end around(single not plural) is not bad. When we bring in a player known for their speed to only run end arounds then we have a problem. I like that he opened up the playbook early. That was to keep em guessing and keep the pass rush off them. All that helped affect how they would pressure later.
