FILMSTUDY: Suggs brings back sizzle but it’s hardly enough

Suggs warmup v Texans
Defensive Notes vs. Texans 10/21/12 Much is not right, but we’ll leave that for the coaches and the bye week. There is also plenty of blame to be dealt, but I’m going to focus on the Ravens’ lone (and very significant) positive. The broadcast of Sunday’s game would have upset me if I were a Texans’ fan. Dan Dierdorf maintained four quarters’ worth of shock on the return of Suggs peppered in with some praise of the courage of Osemele (after the crew missed him re-entering on the Ravens TD...

Ranking the Ravens’ 2nd round draft picks

Jamie Sharper SBXXXV
The release of Sergio Kindle closes the book on an unsuccessful draft pick. Whether or not he can be resigned to the practice squad, the Ravens have exposed him to the remainder of the league, so any residual play value he may have can’t really be ascribed to the fact the Ravens drafted him. I thought it would be fun to go back through the Ravens draft history and rank the 2nd-round selections.  In each case, I’ve given the year drafted and overall number of the selection along with some...

FILMSTUDY: Offensive Line Model and Notes vs. Chiefs and Cowboys

Rice v Cowboys
The week’s biggest move was Williams’ insertion at LG for Harewood. While I think it’s possible Harewood will provide depth at some point this season, he dropped from starter to inactive versus the Cowboys. The scores below include the game against the Chiefs (53 snaps excluding 2 kneels) and Cowboys (48 snaps, excluding 1 kneel): Oher:  Michael had 2 games which left his season score nearly unaffected.  Versus the Chiefs, he surrendered half a sack (Q1, 6:14) and a pressure to Tamba Hali.  He didn’t fare much better against Justin...

FILMSTUDY: Defensive Notes vs. Chiefs 10/7/12

Ray Lewis v Chiefs
The defensive analysis of this game is fairly simple given the Chiefs’ straight-forward game plan.  In the first half, the Ravens surrendered 179 yards rushing and despite a 3-3 tie, the Chiefs would continue with a similar plan in the second half. I think it would be a mistake to call the Chiefs’ running attack conservative.  Given the wide disparity of results (lots of big negative plays with 17 plays of 6+ yards) it is more similar to a passing game, but without much of the big-play upside available through...

FILMSTUDY: Offensive Line Model and Notes vs. Browns 9/27/12

Ravens Offensive Line 1
With the new alignment, I think it’s worthwhile to examine not only the game against the Browns, but also the performance of each lineman to date this season. The Ravens’ starters played all 77 offensive snaps. Oher:  He had a night of negative visibility but Michael’s penalties kept his score down this week in what would otherwise have been his best game of the season.  The false start was one where it appeared he knew when the ball was to be snapped (perhaps by something he initiated, but he beat...

FILMSTUDY: Defensive Notes vs. Browns 9/27/12

Ravens Defense v Browns
If you wanted more variety for the Ravens’ pass rush, you got it Thursday. The Ravens used a blend by scheme and number.  While they only sacked Weeden once in 53 passes, they knocked him down on 9 other occasions, generated an intentional grounding penalty, and induced a hold.  It’s not time to start worrying about the pass rush after a game where the QB takes that sort of a beating.  Weeden played well, but his 59.8 rating was impacted by the Ravens’ rush. By my scoring method, Pees attempted...

FILMSTUDY: Offensive Line Model and Notes vs. Patriots 9/23/12

Ravens Offensive Line
What a great game! I couldn’t stop saying it and on the way back to the car, but Maureen suggested 2 other home games in Ravens’ history with that sort of drama.  The 44-41 win over Seattle in 2003 was a bigger comeback that featured a litany of extraordinary plays.  Similarly, the win over Jacksonville in 2000 capped by Sharpe’s game winning TD was the milestone first win over what was thought to be the biggest divisional obstacle at the time. I’ll watch all 3 of these games many more...

FILMSTUDY: Offensive Line Model and Notes vs. Eagles 9/16/11

TrentCole1
An effective 4-man pass rush is perhaps the single most valuable defensive asset in today’s game.  Teams that can get pressure with 4 will find a way to stop the passing game of virtually any NFL team.  Conversely, teams that can’t stop the 4-man rush are almost universally unsuccessful. The Eagles rushed exactly 4 on 34 of Flacco’s 44 drop backs.  Every one of those 34 plays was a simple rush of their 4-man front without any blitzers or zone drops.  On those plays Flacco was afforded Ample Time and...

FILMSTUDY: 13 Plays that would haunt the Ravens

Celek jumps Ed Reed
Breakdown of the big pass plays v. Philadelphia Eagles (9/16/12) One of the new Tuesday night pleasures is the release of the coaches’ film for the Sunday games on NFL Rewind.  Given how the Ravens lost Sunday’s game, I thought it would be worthwhile to review the biggest plays from that game. The coaches’ film is available with the Season Plus package.  It’s a newly-offered $70 per year package that I recommend.  If you read my column regularly, I include the quarter and time references so you can follow with...

FILMSTUDY: Defensive Analysis v. Eagles

Eagles vs. Ravens
Let’s avoid the clichés, because there are a number of other places on the web to read how: The officials had difficulty spotting the ball, did not know the proper distance on offensive pass interference, and simply called a weak, inconsistent game. The Ravens pass defense is in shambles (which I don’t believe to be true). With the number of quality QBs the Ravens will face this season, they are in big trouble (again, I would not infer this from Sunday’s result). To summarize Sunday’s loss, I’d say the Ravens...

FILMSTUDY: Offensive Line Model and Notes vs. Bengals 9/10/11

Cincinnati_Bengals_v_Baltimore_Ravens_vlPdmcby8rpl
The Ravens entered the opener with no greater question mark than their offensive line.  When the game was finished, the offense had an impressive list of accomplishments: ·         They looked comfortable in the no-huddle offense and tired the Bengals defense despite a modest play count ·         The skill position players bailed out the line for some bad blocking (particularly on the 2nd drive) to score ·         They did not turn the ball over and took advantage when Cincinnati failed to capitalize on turnover opportunities ·         The offensive line was not...

Unanswered Questions The season opener means as much to you as it does to me, I’m sure.  However, because I’ll spend more time watching this game (because there aren’t others from this season to review right now) than most, there is a special significance. Last year’s opener left very few questions as to the strength of the Ravens either offensively or defensively as Flacco had one of his best games, the team rushed for 175 yards vs. the Steelers, and the defense had 4 sacks en route to a 7-0...

FILMSTUDY: Preseason Game 4—Why Watch a Preseason Finale?

a409fa678adfc818190f6a706700ab76
I’m on vacation and ended up watching the Rams feed of the game.  It’s a different perspective, which really gives you an opportunity to focus on the Ravens’ negatives because the replays are primarily Rams’ highlights.  To summarize: ·         Ross Tucker, who is one of several morning drive analysts for Sirius does the Rams preseason games and is outstanding.  He doesn’t tailor his commentary for the least common audience, and will frequently discuss key blocks at the point of attack and when the edge is lost. ·         Marshall Faulk isn’t...

FILMSTUDY: Preseason Game 3—The Stars Come out to Shine

09000d5d82b3f454_gallery_600
It’s easy to get excited about this game and I don’t typically bother commenting on the regulars during the preseason, but I can’t help myself from providing some bullets: ·         Flacco had Ample Time and Space (ATS) on 28 of 38 drop backs (74%) which was a higher percentage of ATS than any game in the last 2 seasons (previous high 71%, 2-year aggregate 49%) ·         On throws with ATS, Flacco was 21 of 28 for 233 yards with 2 TDs and 1 INT (8.3 YPP) ·         Without ATS he...

FILMSTUDY: Individual Defensive Grades and Notes v. Jacksonville

09000d5d82b3f7d0_gallery_640
(Game Rating/Cumulative Preseason Rating)–Defense Brown, Omar (0/+3):  He replaced Cook (Q3, 9:04) after his injury and delivered a vicious undercut of Parmele to hold him to a gain of 2 (Q3, 3:13) on a pass right. Brown, Ricky (0/+2):  No notes, but he had 2 tackles. Carr (+2/-2):  Nigel bounced back from one of the worst preseason games I can recall against the Lions.  He worked off the pull of Brewster to take down Parmele for a gain of 3.  He pursued well to take down Murphy for a gain...

FILMSTUDY: Individual Offensive Grades and Notes v. Jacksonville

Pierce_v_Jags_640
(Game Rating/Cumulative Preseason Rating) Allen (0/-3):  I only noticed him in for 1 snap offensively and he did not have a touch.  He was in on kick coverage.  I assume this means he is no longer part of the RB competition. Bajema (0/0):  He has the 3rd TE position secure.  On Friday he was targeted 5 times with 3 catches.  Balasavage (0/-4):  No longer part of the discussion.  Berry (+1/+2):  Berry had a solid game as a receiver versus the Lions, catching all 6 passes thrown his way for 59...

FILMSTUDY: Ravens pass rush doesn’t deliver v. Detroit Lions

upshaw_kruger
Ravens Fail to Get Home versus Lions With the loss of Suggs and just 2 sacks in the first 2 preseason games, Ravens fans are understandably concerned about the pass rush. New Ravens defensive coordinator Dean Pees already has a reputation for complex blitz schemes.  I wanted to see if I could come up with an objective measure to analyze that tag.  We spent a couple of hours Saturday charting the pass rush including: ·         Identification of each player at the line of scrimmage in a 2 or 3-point stance...

FILMSTUDY: Atlanta Browned out by Ravens–Preseason Game 1 Review

slideshow_1002380830_081012_falcons_CC9
A number of camp battles are now in progress with the Ravens, and the injuries Thursday increased that total.  However, I don’t think there is anything more important than figuring out how the Ravens will maintain their defensive dominance versus the run after losing the premiere edge-setting tandem in the NFL over the last decade (Suggs and JJ). The Ravens didn’t give up any big runs on Thursday as the Falcons ran just 21 times for 71 yards (long of 9), but in the biggest surprise of the opener, Albert...

FILMSTUDY: Bobbie Williams Blocking Review

bobbie_williams2
Bobbie Williams was signed as an unrestricted free agent this off season and is among the options to play left guard for the Ravens in 2012.  In 2011, Williams played in parts of 8 games from weeks 5-14.  He played every snap for 8 straight games before he broke his ankle in week 14 versus the Texans.  He’ll be 36 years old in September. Per PFF grading, I took 1 good game and 1 bad game from his 2011 season with an aggregate score that represented his season as a...

FILMSTUDY: So what do the Ravens have in Jacoby Jones?

Jacoby_Jones_Houston_Texans_v_Indianapolis_U-9qn7R2LwVl
Jacoby Jones is the 3rd ex-Texan to receive a significant contract from the Ravens since the beginning of 2011.  If he can approach the level of play provided by Vonta Leach or Bernard Pollard, they’ll have found another bargain.  Jones projects as the Ravens’ primary punt returner, but had a significant role as a receiver for the Texans in 2011.  With injuries to Andre Johnson (9 games missed) and Kevin Walter (1 game), Jones led all Houston receivers with 808 snaps and was active for all 18 games. The most...
