Way better. I was surprised about how bad Jacoby looked.

Re: The Sam Howell Thread

What has impressed me so far is Sam's poise. He is cool and calm back there and thats a huge trait for a young QB. I think he's legit

So poised. I think he has a giant chip on his shoulder because of falling in the draft. Extremely accurate. Knows when to run. Has a great deep ball. Smart.
He needs to learn when to throw it away and when to slide - couple times last night looked like he was trying to do to much instead of living for another down, but that is to be expected for basically a rookie. Plus id rather him looking to do too much than puss out and play scared. Dude is definitely not afraid.

Last night's game has to be taken with a grain of salt since he played against the second string and a guys who will get cut but he once again looked like he has the potential to be legit.

Yes it was against the 2's so we do need to pump the brakes some but man he looks the part!

Re: The Sam Howell Thread

You can only play against who is on the field. He did exactly what you want a starting QB to do in that situation. Knit-pickers are gonna knit-pick though. Also, this dude has 1 career regular season start. He has been a No. 2 or 3 himself up until a couple weeks ago.

I'm not going to hype up the win more than it needs to, but the Ravens are always putting extra efforts on these preseason games.

Re: The Sam Howell Thread

Ravens defense brought constant blitzers…not a normal in preseason

Howell handled it well

The Sam Howell Thread

All I know is this is the third time we have seen Sam take the field and the third time he impressed. One was last year with Scott Turner against a playoff team that wanted to win.

We have a new owner and a good quarterback. I thought I might never be able to say either of those things.

Re: The Sam Howell Thread

O-line looked pretty good last night. While it wasn't against the 1s, for the most part Howell had a clean pocket. I think he was sacked twice, and both sacks were on him.

More work to be done. They have some time to gel before facing a formidable D-line, at which time we'll be able to make a better determination as to how good they are. I thought it was at least - encouraging.

I'm betting we pick-up at least 1 OL from the waiver wire once rosters are officially cut-down to 53.

Couldn't hurt to add at OL and LB.

If we have all new linebackers on the roster next year, I wouldn't be upset at all. That position needs a complete re-boot.

Risner is still out there...

LB looks thin though; who's out there likely to displace a current starter?
