Today is Halloween. Tonight is Fright Night!
For local football fans these things are among the most feared terrors of the darkest nights for those who bleed purple:
Offensive Line: The pass protection of this group has been as effective as a linen shirt to the talons of Freddy Kruger.
Joe Flacco injury: Nothing personal Tyrod Taylor but this represents an apocalypse of epic proportions for fans of the Baltimore Ravens.
Defensive Line: They hold their ground about as effectively as a vampire on a tanning bed.
Jimmy Smith: Can he pick up the slack for the injured Lardarius Webb? Will he continue to go for WR tricks and fail to deliver treats? Is he a star on the rise or a bust in the making?
Lack of investment in LBS: The Ravens too often shop at the Dollar Store when it comes to new soldiers for General Ray Lewis. His flanks are as exposed and a nightmare, once unthinkable has become a frightening reality – a bad linebacker corps.
Dean Pees: Like a mad scientist how performs a lobotomy on your favorite super hero, he has been the equivalent of Ravens kryptonite. His strange brew has dropped the team’s defense to among the league’s worst.
Cam Cameron: His Zombie-like play calling has the Ravens offense playing like the living dead on the road.
