I just watched this weeks mailbag, and I thought some interesting topics were brought up:
Will Dennis Pitta or Owen Daniels have more TDs:
To me the obvious answer is Pitta. He has a great connection with Flacco and Kubiak loves to feature the TE. I think Pitta is due to have a huge season. It wouldn't surprise me if he ends up with 70+ receptions and close to 1000 yards 8TDs. Daniels is likely to have big role too, but I think he will be the clear 2nd option at TE.
Who leads the Ravens in interceptions:
Ryan Mink gave the nod to Jimmy Smith as he has come out and talked about how he wants to focus on making more interceptions. I have long been a big fan of Jimmy Smith and I think he will have a big year. However, I am a bit worried about him thinking too much about notching INTs. I want him to be a great CB, and I believe he has the talent to get there, but he needs to make sure he is first doing his part to make sure opposing WRs don't beat him. The interceptions will come.
What will John Simon's role on the defense be:
I think this is a very interesting question. I was intrigued by this draft pick and I do think Simon has potential at OLB. I would like to see him blossom into a bigger role for the Ravens as they have been a bit punchless when Suggs and/or Dumervil have been off the field. I hope he carves out a role on the defense and is able to notch 3-4 sacks as a reserve OLB.
