About Kris Jones

Kris Jones

Kris - or "Goob" as he's widely known - has turned an obsession into a career. As a media member by day and super fan by night, he reports from the Under Armour Performance Center twice per week and brings Ravens news from a fan's perspective. His popular YouTube series Goobvision propelled his career and notoriety amongst Ravens fans, even helping him win the 2010 nationwide DIRECTV Ultimate Displaced Fan contest. He's been featured on shows such as The Jim Rome Show, ProFootballTalk Live, The Sirius XM Blitz with Rich Gannon and Adam Schein, Sirius XM's MadDog Radio, The Michael Irvin Show, Tony Bruno Show, Two Live Stews and FoxSports.com to name a few (or is that a lot?). He's caught a touchdown pass from Warren Moon during a flag football game and hates the Pittsburgh Steelers more than anyone else on the face of the earth. Twitter: RavenManiac 

Simon Treating Clash with Boyhood Team as a “Business Trip”

John Simon
Having grown up as a fan of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Ravens rookie linebacker John Simon knows to tread lightly when speaking about his former favorite team, which happens to be current his employer’s biggest rival. Draft day must have been a little awkward. Due to the logjam of pass rushing talent in front of him, Simon has been unable to really put much on display for Ravens fans. Simon has been primarily delegated to cutting his teeth in a special teams role before he can seriously throw his name into...

Matt Birk Has Dropped 75 Pounds Since Retiring

birk
Given the attention paid to Ray Lewis’ “last ride” during the Ravens playoff run, contributions of other vested veterans like Matt Birk were overshadowed. Ray wasn’t the only one able to go out on top and retire following a championship. Since Birk’s retirement, the offensive line has struggled, to say the least, and the biggest hole appears to be at center, where Birk’s replacement, Gino Gradkowski, has been inconsistent. Due to Gradkowski’s struggles as a first-year starter, chatter on social media has fans wishing that Matt Birk would step out...

Risk/Reward: Should Jameel McClain Return?

jameel-mcclain
Following this week’s slate of NFL games, Ravens linebacker Jameel McClain will be eligible to return from the Physically Unable to Preform list (PUP). McClain has been sidelined since Week 14 of last season with a spinal cord contusion, which he suffered in a loss to the Washington Redskins. Given the severity of his injury and considering the risk/reward factor, I believe that McClain would be best suited to just retire, regardless of how difficult it may be for him to actually file the papers. Football is McClain’s passion, and...

Ravens vs. Packers Friday Injury Report and Game Status

ko1
Haloti Ngata returned to practice today, after missing much of the week as he recovers from a hip injury. With Friday practices essentially being walk-thrus, Ngata’s participation isn’t surprising. Listed as Questionable, he should be considered a game-time decision. Here’s the final injury report for the week and the game status information for Week 6′s matchup between the Ravens and Packers. Bold indicates change in injury status from Thursday.   RAVENS Game Status OUT: None DOUBTFUL: DT Terrence Cody (knee) QUESTIONABLE: CB Chykie Brown (thigh) ~ WR Marlon Brown (thigh)...

Tony Gonzalez to Baltimore? Keep Dreaming…

file_203475_0_tony_gonzalez-falcons-jan21
Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez and Ravens’ legendary linebacker Ray Lewis have plenty of things in common. They’ve both played 17 years, they’ve both been to the Pro Bowl 13 times and they both will ultimately end up in Canton, OH as members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Unfortunately for Gonzalez, there is that one major thing that he has yet to do and that’s win a Super Bowl. Gonzalez had stated prior to the 2012 season that it would be his last, but after making it to the...

Forget the Marriott, Kelechi Osemele Needs Motel 6

Screen Shot 2013-10-10 at 10.40.20 AM
Well, this is one of the more ridiculous excuses for a player to miss a game due to injury. Ravens guard Kelechi Osemele surprisingly missed most of last Sunday’s game against the Dolphins due to back spasms. Osemele only played the first series (six snaps) before being replaced by A.Q. Shipley, who was thrown into a pack of wolves to put it nicely. Osemele has struggled with back spasms periodically, but attributed his most recent problem to the softness of the mattress at the team hotel. Apparently, Osmele is the...

The Packers Bring a Well-Balanced Offense to Town

Green Bay Packers v St. Louis Rams
While the Ravens have been searching for a balanced offense all year, their opponent this weekend (perhaps a bit uncharacteristically) happens to possess one of the most balanced offensive attacks in the league. With Aaron Rodgers under center, historically there haven’t been many negative things that could be said about the Packers offense. Nit-pickers would call them one-dimensional, and rightfully so, given their success in the passing game. The saying goes, “if it isn’t broken, don’t fix it,” but when the Packers drafted running back Eddie Lacy out of Alabama...

Wednesday Injury Report: Ravens vs. Packers

_MG_0815
The Ravens edged out the Dolphins for a 26-23 victory despite having only three active wide receivers. With Aaron Rodgers and the high-powered Green Bay Packers offense coming to town, the Ravens are going to need all hands on deck if they hope to outscore the #3 offense in the league. As for the Packers, they have already ruled out four players on Sunday, most notably LB Clay Matthews. That’s a major break for the Ravens offense. Here’s how the injury report shakes out for the first day of practice....

Jacoby Jones Questions Confidence in Knee

Jacoby injured
Sidelined since Week 1 after a bout with friendly fire courtesy of teammate Brynden Trawick, to say that Jacoby Jones is anxious to get back on the field would be an understatement. While Jones’ sprained MCL (knee) may keep him from being as fast as usual on the field, Jones is full speed when it comes to his entertaining locker room interviews. Appearing anxious to get back on the field, I asked Jones how hungry he was to return. “I ain’t hungry, I just had some eggs and rice,” Jones...

NFL Gives Harbaugh Extra Incentive to Win – Avoiding “Hard Knocks”

hard-knocks-bengals
In terms of divulging information, the Ravens’ Under Armour Performance Center or “castle” could just as easily be called “Under the Radar”. The Ravens’ success can be attributed to many factors, but one thing the franchise does differently than others centers on the amount of information they voluntarily make public. As anyone in the local media will tell you, head coach John Harbaugh typically will not give up any information other than that which he is mandated to divulge by the league. Sometimes, Harbaugh’s silence on injuries, personnel decisions or...

Ravens Could Suddenly Have a Logjam at Wide Receiver

timthumb.php
On the injury front, the Ravens received a break with WR/KR Jacoby Jones returning to practice on Wednesday. Jones has been sidelined since Week 1 with a knee injury sustained in a collision with rookie Brynden Trawick, who seemingly let the bright lights and national TV stage get the best of him during the season opener. Jones’ progress has been positive, as he’s been moving without a noticeable limp during the portions of special teams practice open to the media. On the Ravens official injury report, Jones has been listed...

Will the “Doom and Sizzle Show” Really Debut in Miami?

dumtexans
When Elvis Dumervil signed with the Ravens this offseason, the thought of him lining up opposite a healthy Terrell Suggs seemed almost too good to be true. Through the first quarter of the season the pass rush hasn’t quite clicked on all cylinders yet as many had hoped. So far, Suggs has shed double-teams and his four sacks are tied for seventh-best in the league. He has also combined for 31 tackles (16 solo). Dumervil, on the other hand, has only two sacks on the season, and 11 tackles (five...

Joe Flacco: A Mature and Now Outspoken Leader

Joe Flacco
Joe Flacco may not be a honey badger, but in case you haven’t noticed, he “don’t care.” He’s winner. He’s a champion. He’s a Super Bowl MVP. Now, he’s filthy rich. Not that I’ll likely ever know what it feels like, I have to assume it’s hard to not change with $120 million tied to your name. Somehow, Flacco continues to be just as boring as ever, but in a good way. Why should Flacco even care what the skeptics think of him? He’s done everything a quarterback could ever set...

Ravens at Dolphins: Wednesday Injury Report

Jacoby practice
At his Monday post-game press conference, head coach John Harbaugh indicated that the Ravens were expected to see Jacoby Jones return to the practice field in preparation for Sunday’s Week 5 matchup against the Miami Dolphins. Jones was out on the practice field today and returned kickoffs during the portion of practice open to the media. On the official injury report (listed below), Jones was listed as LIMITED. It’s likely that Jones’ participation on Sunday will come down to a game-time decision, given that he has missed the past three...

Observations from Ravens HQ as They Prep for Dolphins

thecastle
Wednesday is “media day” around the facility – typically the day where most of the action happens. While much of the talk was about the pending trade with the Jacksonville Jaguars for left tackle Eugene Monroe, I found myself raving about the addition of buffalo chicken pizza from Papa Johns. With 30 or so media members present on Wednesdays, it’s custom for the Ravens to treat everyone to the official pizza of the NFL. Peyton Manning’s stock portfolio and our waistlines see similar increases. In total, roughly 20 pizzas or...

Torrey Smith’s Big Announcement

Picture 14
Ravens Nation will gain a new member in the coming months as Torrey Smith and his wife Chanel took to Instagram to make a special announcement. They’re expecting the birth of their first child. With Joe Flacco and linebacker Daryl Smith already having children within the past two weeks, it appears that the Under Armour Performance Center might have to replace their putting green out front with a jungle gym. The Smiths first met while in college at the University of Maryland. Both Torrey and Chanel were active in the...
