    Torrey Smith has Sucked



    Really, really bad the last few weeks.

    He is in a huge funk. He needs to wake the hell up.

    I could probably count on one hand the number of genuinely tough catches Torrey has made this season. He is utterly terrible at tracking the ball.

    And the lack of effort he showed today was absolutely unacceptable.

    I have no idea whether that Flacco pass to him down the sideline in the 4th quarter was possible to catch. But for him to just come to a halt at the ten yard line and watch the ball soar over his head is completely unacceptable.

    Who does he think he is? Willie Mays or Ed Reed? Does he think he can look back and in a split second identify for a fact that the ball is completely uncatchable? Because he's proven time and time again that he is terrible at tracking the ball in the air. That's bullshit. He's got to sprint full speed and extend for the ball. If it's out of reach, that's life. But to just stop and not try is bush league.

    When Flacco doesn't manage to land the ball right into his chest Torrey rarely catches it. He has regressed. Jacoby Jones is a better receiver at this point.

    He needs to wake the hell up for the playoffs because the Ravens need his talents. He usually plays with so much determination. He needs to get back to playing like a Raven.

    I agree. We should cut him

    They are still running the ROUTES of CAM. They are not sharp. They roll them. Now Marlon Brown who was not part of CAM. Runs much harder, cuts in his routes.

    He does a Houdini act a little too often.

    Re: Torrey Smith has Sucked

    He's dropped a few balls the last few games and I did think the one deep ball earlier in the Lions game was catchable if he had tracked it better. It hit the ground right next to his back should, it just looked like he couldn't get his head around. To say he's sucked is pretty ridiculous though. He did break 1000 yards for the first time tonight.

    Our offensive play calling is so unimaginative. I'm more concerned with Flacco's knee at the moment, every ball sailed on him after he got hit.

    I second the motion as Torrey catches everything that he is able to get his hands on from Flacco. He is often double covered and it is not like the Ravens have a running game to take off the pass defense pressure.

    This just simply isn't true.

    This is another reason why they need a new offensive system. The system dictates the routes run, the drastic dependency on the rush offense and the lack of quick passing options. Yes, Joe is best at throwing deeper down the field, but you can still have a WC style system with vertical elements. We just saw it in New England when Moss was there and we are seeing it in Green Bay.
