I know we had no quarterback last year, and I know we got young players, etc but I just see a predictable and stubborn offense that caters to what is in his head as opposed to what is on the field. Him, Hopkins, and our o line are my biggest concerns. I know the o line was decent last year, and we definitely addressed it in the off-season but Im concerned about it none the less.
That being said if that team last year can win 7 than this team can win 10.

-Interior OL depth. A part from Schweitzer we don't have one quality interior OL back up. Martin and Larsen and #63 Bensrwrchifllürbweigshteinbergufflorgwhydobackupol inemenalwayshaveeffedupnames seemed to get pushed and tossed around like freakin rag dolls...



Only real positive of the night is AGG making a couple of nice tough catches.
One other positive was our 2nd DL, Bada and the rest did get 2 sacks on LJackson and there was some good cb play when they threw to the right. Whenever they wanted to move they targeted Apke and the chains moved.

This is 100% how I feel. I have zero concerns about the defense at this point, other than - how much are they going to be on the field...? It is now 19 out of 20 games now that Turner's offense hasn't even lucked into a first possession TD. It's pitiful. Yeah, we haven't seen C Samuel (also could be concerning), and it's preseason, but the whole body of work since he was brought on as the OC isn't impressive.

The starting offense must be really balling out on the practice field for the staff to feel comfortable with what they (we) have seen from them in the preseason games. They (players/coaches) are all eluding to this when asked about it. I hope it is reality.

Yeah, to me, the offense is concerning.

One thing about Baltimore is they(Harbaugh) care about the preseason. They also use defensive blitz and pressure against unschemed offensive lines. You see it every year, and in last night's game there were times they had all out blitzes all first quarter. For me, it is a bit ridiculous.

Edit: just read Ravens fear Dobbins may have suffered a torn ACL and be out for the season. I get playing the starters, but damn that sucks for Dobbins if true.

According to Ron 4 places were up for grabs going into last night, now there are 6. At least two guys may have played themselves off of the roster.

The other way to look at it is, two players played themselves more into the mix.

AGG and Bada are a couple possibilities.

Re: WFT 2021 Pre-Season Games Thread

Played onto or played off of, different sides of the same coin. Wonder whether Reeves was one, he had a rough night so did Apke. To keep an extra (9) DL they would need to drop a DB, didn't see much of Deandre Carter, maybe AGG or Milne have displaced him.

Think Bada is destined for the PS

If Carter had more to prove he would have been on the field.

True that.
Rewatched the 1st half, CB Darryl Roberts (not to be confused with rookie safety Darrick Forrest) made some nice plays... Don't see how we can keep him though, think he makes it to our practice squad ?

Yup. Its why we are usually playing from behind. I wonder how many first downs we have on opening drives let alone touchdowns.

Why do so many people care about pre season? I don't get it. If they played and McLaurin twists his knee then everyone would be yelling about why were starters were on the field.

This offense isn't going to light up the scoreboard, no matter how much they play in pre season. My guess is they're going to be up and down just cause where we are at talent wise. It's a middle of the pack group.

As far as Samuel goes, perhaps they don't want him out there for whatever reason. He's a vet and knows how to get himself ready. He doesn't need pre season.
