Official Vent Thread: who stays and who goes? What did you like/hate this Preseason?

Nothing to vent about in this game.  Can't expect much from the backups, but I think they did well regardless.

 

The one thing that makes me angry is that this game raised more questions than answers about this final 53 lol

I was looking for a little more from our back defensive linemen and I'm not sure if The Ravens should be still in the hunt for a cornerback.

I think Pete Morelli played very well for the Saints. 

 

I need to watch the last game. Anyone know when the replay is?

How many WRs will we keep?

 

Butler, Aiken and Camp all made their case tonight IMO.

 

We already have the Smiths, Jacoby, and Brown who are all pretty safe I believe.

 

Then there is Thompson who has value at returns, though Camp did fairly well there too.

One complaint: too many FGs, not enough TDs.

 

Everyone played well. Hate to see some of these guys go. :(

 

Same for me!  Shades of our last regular season.  Not looking good so far!  We'll see!  Week #1 is up!  Bengals!!!!

I think this game finally proved that we should keep Tucker on the squad this year. I know it's risky, but we should try and find a spot on the 53 for him. I think it might work out in our favor.

I don't know about that.  The guy showed really poor form in his tackling.  He led with his shoulder.  Being the last line of defense, he has to learn to wrap up.  Tucker is firmly on the bubble right now.

Huh? He should be cut.

I saw great vision, patients, and quickness out of Toussaint. Really like what I saw from him from games 1 and 4. Don't know if he makes the 53, but I think he defiantly earned a spot on the PS.

Camp looked great. Akien and Butler looked good too. Hurst was solid as was Urschel. WR is going to be a tough call. Someone is probably headed to IR.

I thought Levine had a good game at corner. He got turned around on that long play, but he forced to receiver inside, where he should have had help, but didn't. Not his fault. I'm not sure we could trust him in the regular season, but he has shown some signs of improvement. Safety is going to be another tough call. Miles struggled in this game, but his presence on STs will probably keep his spot.

I was expecting a roughing the kicker call given the way the runner ran over him.   :bitenails:

I wasnt sure where to put this and didnt want to make a whole new thread. I wasn't able to watch the game as I was on a train all night but how did the defensive ends look? I ask because a guy Adam Carriker is a free agent right now and I'm wondering if the Ravens could try bringing him in just to see what hes got. He's 6-6, 315 and is coming off a pretty serious injury, however he was a first round pick and was having a pretty decent career before he got hurt again. He got traded from the Rams because he was playing out of position, and started for the Redskins at 3-4 defensive end. 

 

Again I wasn't able to watch the game so not sure how the ends played, but if we like the 5 locks (ngata, jernigan, canty, williams, Tyson) for the DL and aren't wiling to take on one of the undrafted guys, he could be a pretty good option to at least bring in on a vet minimum, no risk-high reward type prove it contract. Then we could always just keep 5 or bring up a guy like Hopkins if Carriker just still isnt ready or Harbaugh/Ozzie doesn't like what they see from him

John Simon showed enough tonight to keep his spot, in my opinion. He showed a flash of his potential tonight. 

 

Anyone think we keep seven WRs? Don't think it's likely, but I won't rule it out.

 

That Toussaint guy looked beast. He had a great audition for some team out there.

 

Oline looked solid, but Shipley and Jensen both looked bad. I loved Jensen's potential but I'd cut him and try to sneak him on PS. Simply hasn't looked good. Happy with the way Gino, Hurst, and Urschel played.

I didn't watch the first half, but saw the second and Simon played well. Used his hands nicely! I have to take back what I said about him. He made me eat my words and I'm glad he did, if at least for this game. I was a big fan of his and more disappointed than anything. Glad he looks better. 

 

Shipley is just so bad. It's really unbelievable. Jensen is worse. He's destined for the PS.

I know he's not on anyone's list but Jeremy Butler looks so smooth out there. The WRs we cut will end up in Cleveland or Caroline. smh Oh well, good for them.

Go Ravens

Love Simon, and I don't even try to hide it. He's the kind of guy that you love to play with. He's intense, he plays hard, and he hits hard. He's a hard working, tenacious guy. I could see him emerge into a leadership role in the post-Suggs Ravens. Could be a late bloomer type like Adalius Thomas was. I think it was Hensley who said today that AD didn't really contribute until his third year. I think we'll see that with Simon.

 

I still have high hopes for Jensen. He's a strong and athletic guy with a good frame. He just hasn't put it together. A year on the PS and more time with Castillo would do him good. However, I haven't seen the mean streak that people have claimed he has. He looks kinda soft sometimes, and I didn't see him finish blocks well. Not happy with his performance, but he still has high potential.

 

Shipley's just pathetic. At least Gino made a noticeable effort to improve from last season. Shipley looks fatter and weaker from last season. Gino looks worlds better. If Shipley is on this roster to start the season I'll be disappointed.

I'll agree with a few other members here.

 

Tucker should probably be cut. He couldn't even score a TD! All he did was make field goals.

 

If he isn't let go on Saturday I will be disappointed.

I would of liked to see more of Fitzgerald Toussaint besides last night. Honestly, the one running back I've been disapppointed in the most this pre-season/off season is Pierce.

I would hate to make the decision on who makes the 53 at wr.

Locks:

1. Torrey

2. Ice up Son

3. Jacoby

4. Marlon

Campanaro very likely wouldn't clear waivers for practice squad and he's shown some ability on ST and for those reasons he's wr #5.

Now we're down to Aiken an Deonte for the final spot and what a tough decision it is. Deonte has been making it happen both as a returner and for Tyrod in the passing game. Aiken may not have great ST value but as a wr he looks smooth and has been stacking good practice and game performances consistently. Love the depth at wr this year!

I guess Williams just might not be good enough. You know. It happens.
